For sure if you'd like.

Okay, flyersfan and Hextall are for moving it. Anyone else? If at least two other people agree I'll probably move it then.

Okay four people is enough for me. To the off-season it is then. I'll make announcement and send e-mails.

For all of you that hated the old way of changing your lineups like I did, Fantrax has now implemented drag-n-drop lineup changes. Go to Team Preferences to change it.

Trade deadline is 11 days away. Gets to trading!

The free agency this next summer is going to be a lot deeper then it is now due to rosters being shortened a bit (just less reserve spots) and anywhere from two to six teams being contracted. Right now I see four inactive teams as it is. In fact, if things go as planned the number one player in fantasy points in this league will be a free agent come off-season time.

There seems to be some confusion as to the pro draft and prospect draft in the off-season and how contraction will be handled. Here's what's going on:

1) The prospect draft will be in the inverse order of the standings with the bottom half of the league (or, in other words, the top 8 or less, depending on contraction, of the prospect draft) having a lottery so tanking isn't necessarily beneficial to anyone who decides to do so. The pro draft will be in the order of the standings, but with the lottery results of the prospect draft taken into account and another lottery, this time for the other half of the league, to decide the final order of the draft. I know that sounds confusing, but basically the prospect draft is in the opposite order of the standings and the pro draft is in the order of the standings except that both drafts will feature a lottery for half the league.

2) It is not totally decided how contraction will be handled. As soon as the off-season starts a roll-call will be taken and I will see how many teams will be contracted. The most I'll contract is six and the least I'll contract is two. That's all I can guarantee, but ideally I'd like to contract the league by four teams. Personally, I'd like the players of these contracted teams to be added to the pro draft, but there is a possibility of having a an entirely separate third draft for contracted team's players. After teams have been contracted and managers possibly replaced the league will then have a vote to decide whether the players of contracted teams will be in the pro draft or a third dispersal draft. Popular opinion decides it.

Simple as that. Sounds fair to me.

Also, I sent an e-mail to everyone to remind the league that the trade deadline is imminent and to warn and remind everyone to stay active by logging in at least.

No you don't. Haha it can't be that bad though. You got a nice group of forwards going as well as Pronger and Thomas.

After looking over your potential keepers, yeah, you definitely won't.

Posted some fun polls in the Fantrax message board that include best trade of the season, best manager of the season, and best free agent claim of the season. Will also post a best draft steal poll if customer support can restore our draft results (which I don't know if they can).

Go ahead and vote. It's fun and allows us to see some of the best and worst of the season.

I win draft steal for Jagr. That's all there is to it. Pretty sure I got him in the 5th or 6th round

I do not like this at all. This is the exact opposite of what leagues do because the worst team should have the best chance of improving.

I like the lottery idea, but the winner of the season should pick last, for parity.

Things are always allowed to be voted on in this league and usually I'll go with popular opinion so if a lot of you think this then I'll change it up. My line of thinking is that the worst teams get the best picks in the prospect draft to turn themselves into a good team down the line and the currently good teams pick first in the pro draft because they earned the right to keep themselves a good team. Plus I think it's kind of unfair to have the worst teams pick first in both drafts.

No matter what we do there will be two separate lotteries involved though.
