Does any know...if at anytime, the NHL/NHLPA come to an agreement....how much time does everyone get before the first games get started?
I'd like a better idea that if the NHL/NHLPA do come to an agreement that we can quickly and efficiently organize the keepers, draft and the schedule for the year.

My heart just isn't in it right now. I don't want to do anything NHL.

I'm with CRD. Unless the timing of the season's start somehow impacts our decision, it doesn't make sense to put that decison off. Especially with respect to the playoff matchup length, that's a change I'd personally like to see every season. Yeah, we might not get exactly 2 match-ups with every team, but I'm kinda okay with slightly unbalanced scheduling in favor of longer playoff matchups.

If I had my way, it would be: 1 week round 1, 1.5 weeks round 2, 2 week final; so 4.5 weeks. Obviously the season won't always work out to the right number of weeks for this to happen, but if the target was 4 weeks minimum of playoff time plus any 'extra' days, it could work. That would mean for example, say the regular season was 27 weeks and 1 day. Then playoffs would be 4 weeks and 1 day, leaving 23 weeks for the regular season. I'm not sure if this level of flexibility is afforded to us by Yahoo (can we do a half week?). If it's not, then I would still vote for 1week/1week/2weeks. I hate the notion that the finals for us is the last week of the regular season, when top players are often 'rested' in games that don't matter. Creating a longer final would help to eliminate that.

Is it possible to push the draft back like a month instead of a week or two at a time?

I'll send a league wide PM. If we can get at least 8 it should be worth doing.

I'm out I think. Going to be in Thailand the 26th to Jan 4th, so won't get to see much of the tourney...someone PVR everything and don't tell me anything.

Also, on an unrelated note I just had the most ridiculous 30th bday ever in Vegas. I also lost my cellphone.

So there will be 6 of us if we do it (me, RevM, Tiranis, LoB, Ubi, and JannikAtTheSelKesler).

Worth it? Watch the non-league guy crush us haha.

If you guys think so I'll randomize the draft order and we'll start ASAP.

OT: I had an interview for a job in Whiterock yesterday. Hopefully will have a follow-up one after the holidays. What's it like? I like living in a big city (live downtown Toronto). Is it possible, given that I have a car, to be somewhere that downtown Vancouver is fairly accessible but I can still commute to work in a reasonable time frame? Is that a stupid thing to do? Any other thoughts you guys have would be appreciate...kinda timid about the idea of dropping all my friends and moving across the country, but the job opportunity seems like it might be too good to pass up.

Google says 45 minute drive from Whiterock to Vancouver.

I thought it takes at least an hour....or 2.

Given that you're on highway 99 the whole time I guess...
Traffic on 99 may be troublesome going home after work.

It will be an awful commute if you have to work during regular hours because you will have to deal with the tunnel AND the oak street bridge. Both of which are frakin nightmares in rush hour.

Also, it's silly to live downtown Vancouver. I lived there for 4 years. It's not a big city feeling, its a *********, club focused no fun city. There is way better areas IN vancouver that you can live and still get that feeling while only being minutes from downtown. Kits, Commercial etc. The only areas technically in "downtown" that are nice to live in are Davie (amazing, but not sure how comfortable you'd be with that) and Denman/Stanley Park/West End/English Bay which runs the gamut from pricey tiny apartments (think 1600 a month for 500 sq ft bachelor) to older buildings built in the 60s and 70s which are affordable but ******, run down and bed bug infested.

Ok, I don't care if you don't care until we actually will have a NHL season but please note the fact that Yahoo has not extended online draft dates past this Friday.

If that is the case, we will have to do an offline draft. Please bare that in mind. If this is the case, the draft must be completed at a speedy rate (within a week) if the NHL season is a go.

I do believe yahoo may extend the possible draft dates at a later time, but once again, it has not done so as of this moment. I will check again to see if they've extended possible draft dates at home after work.

Offline draft would be fine, I think most of us are online enough to do it.
