Unless one of you guys won't be here as we get closer to Christmas I don't think there's any reason this can't carry on into say the 23rd. That wouldn't be optimal, and I thought it would be going much faster than it has been.
While we have the time I'd rather not skip picks or autopick unless the 12 hour are up. Once leafsfan1990 picks then everyone will have picked so maybe they'll be more into it, and check the thread more often I don't know, I anticipate this speeding up a little but if it doesn't it's not the end of the world.
I just hope that the 10 people we have are devoted to play and not just signed up and not really cared, we don't need people who could be here but are just lounging around and waiting, or not realizing it's their pick. If you don't care enough to pick relatively quickly, and if that happens over and over by the same people, I would think they would need to be replaced so the draft could speed up
There are approximately 192 hours until the 23rd. 10 rounds x 10 people means there should only be on average under 2 hours between each pick. Unless people start picking it up, I don't see that happening, especially accounting for sleep hours.
leafsfan1990 has made 2 posts since September, 1 in this thread signing up, and 1 in the other pool, being put on the waiting list, He was here this afternoon, but I would expect that he'd be here now, or sometime during a saturday afternoon.
Guys if you know you're not going to be here, send me a PM with a list of players in the order that you would select them so I can take the highest off the list.
If you're just not that dedicated then tell me so I can get someone else, we cannot wait 6 hours for every single pick
Man, was hoping that Rielly would stick around for a bit longer...
At least we're finally picking up the pace
yeah no way was Reilly staying on the board until your next pick at 29. I could see him sneaking into round 3 if everyone started overlooking him but dropping to 29 is almost asking for a miracle. I would have seriously though about him at #16, and definately would have took him if he dropped to 25.
Without giving up my plans Murphy might have been a decent pick if you were looking for a D man. I wouldn't pick him that high but I also wouldn't have picked Maatta that high. imo Murphy will score more than Maatta as he will get a nice chunk of PP time for Canada. I think that's his role on the team as he's not great defensively and will lack 5 on 5 minutes.
But like you said time will tell, I had Kuznetsov last year 2nd overall in one of these pools and he was looking terrible until he had that 9 point game, and it paid off so you do never know.
With my pick... I'm happy to select Joel Armia of Finland. Messaging next person now.
He was one of the guys I wanted, oh well. I almost picked him over Barkov, would have been nice to get both, he's dropped below round 2 in many of the pools on HF so I was hoping he might here too, oh well
