Even though my team preferences aren't listed on the thread (they're in the scouting report though!), Nashville is one of my preferred teams as I'm considering several trips up to catch some games this season. Just sayin...

So if I get traded will I know ahead of time? I'm not really sure how the trades are working and if you have to request a "NTC" or not. I'm not necessarily opposed so long as that stupid idea of banning a traded player from his or her original team forum isn't implemented

Oh I figured that's what you meant. I was just adding to the joke. Not very well obviously.

If you put too many spices on the same dish, you won't taste any of them. (You also put the letter on the wrong side. ) If you want something that uses both logos, go for something a little less elaborate:



It tells you what's going on, and I've designed it in such a way that it can be tailored to the individual users. I just need to know who our mods are picking a few minutes in advance.

It won't be, this is all just for fun. But for the record, if I get traded, someone will be pulling TP off his roof. Just bear that in mind...

Oh I know, but I wanted to sort of take a shot at some of the people taking this VERY seriously over on the main board. Some people are just too into everything...

Quick update on the draft. Which ic going a hell of a lot slower than I thought...

1. Dallas---Juzmo
2. Carolina---RoyalAir
3. Boston---AintLifeGrand
4. Los Angeles---BTN
5. Anaheim (from Toronto)---Telfo
6. Detroit (From Montreal)---Chipper
7. NY Islanders---Duke49
8. Edmonton---Sunshine36616
9. Montreal(From Detroit)---BreakTheWallsDown
10. San Jose (from Philadelphia)---KevinOneel
11. Tampa Bay---ThrasherMinion
12. Phoenix---SilverRiver89
13. Vancouver---Dorncog
14. Calgary---Shameus
15. Chicago---DungeonK
16. Columbus---TasteOfFlames
17. Ottawa --- Ashe
18. Buffalo --- Atlantawhaler
19. New Jersey --- Rhodes81
20. Minnesota --- sabreality
21. St. Louis
22. Florida
23. Nashville
24. Colorado
25. Philadelphia (from San Jose)
26. Washington
27. NY Rangers
28. Pittsburgh
29. Toronto (from Anaheim)

And the supplemental round for the 9 smallest post counts....
30. Chicago
31. Ottawa
32. St. Louis
33. Calgary
34. Dallas
35. Nashville
36. Tampa Bay
37. Carolina
38. Phoenix
39. Toronto (from Anaheim)
40. Florida

Lot of talent left to draft. I can tell you that there is about 15 guys I was looking at and there is 11 picks to go. We might have two fans are 1st rd. level after this draft if there are enough reaches.

Wow, I swear your only purpose in life is to give me ****. It gets to a point where I have to ask, 'Did I get a real diamond for the wedding ring?' 'Was the honeymoon in Vegas or Hawaii?' 'Did I get an alimony agreement?'

I think you missd Vancouver picking dorncog at 13 late last night.

not my show to run but I think there should have been a time limit. if you miss it, the next GM picks. if you are passed you can jump back in but otherwise this is gonna take about 4 days, I suspect...

Yeah. But it's picking up. I think 20-25 picks will get done. And the draft is non-binding so no worries in 2 months after the Thrasher fans try the other guys they will come for the good stuff.

It's kinda hard to do a time limit on message boards for things like this due to real life interference. then again, this is the first time we've ever done anything like this, so the whole thing is a learning process.

Teams needs several representatives then. I know it could get confusing, but it'd be a hell of a lot easier figuring out a way to make it work with several reps per team rather than trying to figure out a way to avoid life issues.

Each team has four or five reps, with each having a rank. If the highest ranking member isn't available then the pick will go to the next highest ranking members and so on. Trades must be done before a team is on the clock.

I guess the other option would have been to submit a rank list and when your turn came up you got whoever whas highest on your list...

but I suppose thats a little late now, huh??

Some teams did in fact prepare for this. I was one of the emergency reps for Columbus if DSL happened to be unavailable.

This is problematic because trades may be dependent on whomever just got drafted. If you're trading up to get SuperPoster1123 and he gets drafted with the pick just before the one you're trading for, that kind of kills the deal, no?

Again, some teams did this as well. We had a rank list, and the rep was basically available just in case they all were drafted before our number came up.

You know, I would agree if this weren't just for fun, but it is. We're just "drafting" a poster here. Taking it too seriously by sitting around for an hour trying to make a "trade" zaps all of the fun from it. The difference between getting one poster or another is marginal at best. If you don't like the new guy, ignore him or her.

With that said, maybe we should just take the trades out of it all together. All it seemed to do was make certain mods feel like they were actually GMs, and as soon as they started treating this like serious business it lost the initial fun factor. This is what happens when some level headed people try to unleash fun on HF Boards. Some folks just have to ruin it for everyone else.

(of course, I hope we don't need another dispersal draft so hopefully there is no trial and error situation)

Will you guys just hurry up and pick me already? I'm ranked 35th. We all know I'm not on anyone's radar. Let's get this over with.

I'll buy a beer for whatever person announces my name at the first Preds game I attend.

There are no violations against bribing teams to draft you right? How about a draft for a draft?

Just remove yourself from the draft and come aboard on a tryout contract No beer necessary

Well that might not be a bad idea but I'm kinda interested to see how this all pans out. Maybe I'll just buy you a beer when we hit the strip after the game? I saw the best cover band I've ever seen in my life down there when we came up for the Thrashers game during the snow storm a couple years ago. I also supposedly stole some girls cab but I was so drunk I didn't even notice.

I'm not selling myself too well am I?
