Fantasy Hockey League?

General Managers




Here is a spreadsheet of all the players taken so far. It will be updated every so often by "Feel the Heat".

Keeper League Spreadsheet


Calgary Flames HFBoards Rules

General Settings

1. After the draft is completed, you will have 25 players on your roster; 4 Left Wingers, 4 Centers, 4 Right Wingers, 6 defensemen, and 2 goaltenders. You will also have three bench spots and two IR spots. You may have a third goaltender, but one will be placed on your bench.

2. We will be using Yahoo! Fantasy

3. The stats we will be using are: Goals, Assists, Total Points, Powerplay Points, +/-, Face-off Wins, Hits, Blocks, and Game-Winning Goals. For Goalie stats we will use: Wins, Losses, GAA, Sv%, and Shutouts.

4. There will be no salary cap.

5. There will be three divisions, each having 6 teams. Two teams from each division will make the playoffs. This means that there are 6 teams total that make the playoffs. (top two teams get a bye)

6. We will be doing H2H.


Trades

1. One day full processing period for all trades.

2. In order for a trade to go through, you must confirm the trade in the Calgary Flames fantasy hockey thread.

3. The Commissioner and Co-Commissioner can only veto trades, if the trade seems unfair.

4. Only players, draft picks, and prospects can be traded.

5. If you trade a draft pick(s), the same amount of draft picks have to come back.

6. If you are to trade a conditional draft pick, please state that when confirming the trade.

7. A trade will not go through if the involved assets are not owned by one or both teams.


Free Agency Rules:

1. A full two day processing period for all free agency pickups.

2. You may pick up any player in the free agency pool that was not picked in the draft. Although, if a prospect is in the free agent pool and is owned by another team, you may not pick them up.


Waivers:

1. Like the NHL, the worst team gets the first option, then will be moved to last after they have picked someone up on waivers. A full two day processing period will happen after a team has picked up a player on waivers.


Prospects:

1. Each season we will be conducting a three-round prospect draft. You may pick any prospect from the last two NHL Entry Drafts. Once you draft a prospect, they will head go down to your prospect pool, where they will stay until you bring them up to your roster or until they play 50 games in the NHL. If you do not bring up a prospect after they have played 50 games in the NHL, they are free game and any team can pick them up in the Free Agency Pool.

I'm game! I'd really actually want to start a keeper league though, but I don't want to join a random one, I'd like one with people from around this forum since I know you guys are all active.

Fantasy hockey is a form of fantasy sport where players build a team that competes with other players who do the same, based on the statistics generated by professional hockey players or teams. The majority of fantasy hockey pools are based on the teams and players of the National Hockey League (NHL).
A typical fantasy hockey league or hockey pool has 8 - 12 teams but often have as many as 20. Other types of pools may have a greater number of teams, which may dilute the average talent making it more or less fun depending on the league, but also represents more closely the actual NHL, which currently has 30 teams. Other forms of fantasy hockey may allow an unlimited number of teams, whereby any number of owners may draft the same player(s). These typically have a restricted number of "trades" where one player may simply be exchanged for any other in the player pool, typically of the same position.
Quote:
Any fantasy hockey pool that "rolls over" into other years is called a "Keeper" or "Dynasty" league. The leagues can be run each year in any of the above formats with a winner declared at the end of each season. At the end of the year team managers decide which players they wish to protect (the number varies - from protecting and keeping all players, to keeping as few as three or four players). Before the NHL season opener, a fantasy draft is held to fill out the rest of the roster.
Many keeper leagues, as well as some single season leagues, have adopted salary cap rules similar to the NHL. In a "Salary Cap League", a salary is assigned to each player before the manager selects his team. Salaries are usually determined by the NHL player's real salary. Otherwise a number value is assigned - usually by an online hockey pool program - or it is determined through an auction process. Each manager must ensure that they do not go over the predefined salary cap when selecting players.
Also some leagues have introduced a rookie draft into their fantasy league. By using the rankings from the last season to determine the draft order last place gets 1st pick and so on. Also in some leagues trading picks is also allowed.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fantasy_hockey


Basically, you have a draft at the start of the season to pick the players you want for your team. After that, you make trades, add/drop players, and make other transactions to make your team the best in the league. After the regular season is over (fantasy hockey), there will be playoffs to determine the champion.

A keeper league is pretty much the same, except after the season is over, you can pick X amount of players to keep for the next season. (you will then have a draft to pick the rest of the players)

Hope this makes sense!

The only thing I request is to not track pims. We can track hits and blocks instead to show defensive stats but I hate pims since they should penalize you not reward you for having goons.


Keeper leagues can also kick out inactive players and have a new gm takeover teams which I like.

I once tried to play CBC's hockey pool but I found it to be too much work. You had to look at the schedule every week and examine who had played the most games, examine their rosters and stats, and it simply became too much work. Especially when you have as little free time as I do.

I do most of my posting from my phone during waiting periods of my life (taking a ****, waiting in line for coffee, etc), so if you can do this fantasy thing from a phone and it's not too much work, then I'd be down to try it.

Like I mentioned before, think of keeper leagues like real NHL teams, if a GM goes inactive, we boot him and invite someone to take over their team. Obviously if a GM messes up real bad the new GM will have their work cut out for them, but that is half the challenge/fun too. Best thing is, if we have everyone from hfboards here, it'll be neat as obviously some of you don't agree with my opinions and vice versa, it'll be interesting to see how different approaches some people will take to building their teams.
