I'd want to keep those 2 stats in, +/- are pretty much staples in any league, it adds more dimension to the leagues. Without those 2 stats everyone will just be picking scorers like a points only league which is kind of boring IMO.

I think I may start up a 2nd league with only 1 goalie. Probably without the +/- but PIM is a staple of every hockey league.

I like HonHoff's ideas. Keep the league with only one goalie and that'll prevent us from goalie hoarding. And I don't like the idea of having +/- as a category but I do like PIM (partly because I had over 200 more PIMs than anyone else last year).

I might be interested because it's very hard to find a league with neither of those categories.

If I'm gonna do this I would like it to be as dumbed down as possible in a way in regards to positions.

Maybe like 9 FW, 6 D and 2-3 bench guys plus 1 goalie. Nice and small.

I'm already in two massive ass leagues.

I will join, but only if we vote or discuss the settings. If you're just going to put in whatever you want without asking us, I don't want to waste a spot.

I'm hearing some people want only 1 goalies, but I'm probably going to stick with 2 goalie roster slots, but only requiring 2 minimum starts per week. Every starter in the league should easily start at least 2 games per week, that way most team should have 1 starter and 1 back up.

It's not the minimum requirement that bugs me - it's the maximum requirement.

Having two starting goalies for 1 week is a huge advantage over a team with only 1 starting goalie. It's essentially like having an extra player on your starting lineup. And with 20 teams and 2 goalies (40 goalies in all vs. the 30 starting goalies in the NHL), you're telling 10 of your owners that they will always be pretty much a man down every week.

Playing more games isn't going to give you an advantage really. You're not going to benefit from playing your goalies more fro SV% and GAA. The only place you'll benefit is W and SO, playing a goalie on a good team is gonna be more beneficial than playing a goalie on a bad team multiple times, that's part of the drafting strategy. Not to mention you have a chance of ruining your GAA and SV% everytime you play a goalie.

If you're wasting your pick drafting another starter, you're missing out on a potential star forward, that's also part of the drafting strategy. That's pretty much the way it has always been, having 1 goalie per game is just way too shallow.

The problem is that wins and shutouts obtained high number of points last year. A goalie could wipe out 2-3 great performances by your skaters. If you had 2 starting goalies with great weeks and no maximum # of games, you could clean house. While the other team with an NHL starter and an NHL backup was already behind in the fantasy matchup no matter what because he'd be lucky to even see his backup start an NHL game that week. It was just incredibly off-balance. At least give every team a chance to put goalies in there that will accrue points for their teams. I ended up having 3 goalies on my roster (or 45 goalies league total) to try and get games in. It was kind of stupid and that's why I quit mid-season.
