but if i go to my roster, i have the dropped guy on and the guy i added is no where to be found.

what did i do wrong
Probably nothing. Go to your team roster and change the date to two days from now and see if the changes are made.

Scratch that. I already checked for you. You got him.

The roster changes dont appear until the next day. Click on tomorrow's lineup and they will be there.

How do the actual head to head matchups work? Can I adjust my lineup every day to include whoever is playing that night or do I have to submit my lineup for the week and keep it that way? If it's the former, wouldn't whoevers players play more games that week have a huge advantage?

You can do it daily. You can only move a player around before the game he's playing in that day starts.

Or you can do it for the entire week if you want. Either way is viable. I prefer the daily method, though. Or at least checking in daily to make sure a player isn't scratched or put on the IR that might be in the line-up.

So bench players do matter and those guys that have a lot of top prospects on the bench who aren't in the NHL will be at quite a disadvantage in the early years then?

In some stats, yes. The most a player will play a week is 4 (5 would be an extreme aberration). So it doesn't make too much of a difference as even the best have nights where they don't produce. But things like hits and SOG's can have an advantage. But things like +/- and GAA could actually benefit from players not being put in the lineup.

However the best way to go is to update every day (morning works best). Other than making trades and Free Agency grabs, the only think we have to do as managers is update the rosters. The rest is up to the players we picked.

Well that's the choice a guy like me made. It doesn't mean I'll lose some weeks over others. The advantage/disadvantage of having a fully active bench compared to prospects is pretty slight. The biggest factor is how much production you can squeeze out of every player. Though I focused on prospects about to break into the league.

EDIT: After reading that I realize just how little it made sense. What I'm saying is...6 of my big guns can fail me in a few offensive categories but a few of my depth guys made up for it and put me in the lead. Either way. Dominating in the traditional stat categories only accounts for a fraction of the points won. There's the PIMs, SOGs, PPP, goalie stats, etc. That's all part of the strategy (partly why I passed on stronger offensive forwards for guys like Dorsett, Clutterbuck, and Konopka)

Awesome, that means the strategy I used to draft was a good one (I hope haha). Although a few of my guys are getting up there in age so in hindsight I probably would have gone a bit younger.

I liked your drafting to be honest. You put together an impressive group.

Bad news for whoever drafted Ovechkin. He says he'll stay in the KHL if salaries are cut back.

That's an empty threat if I ever saw one. He probably thinks that by saying that the players have more leverage. He'll be back in Washington as soon as the NHL starts back up.

Okay most of the guys in this league have been absent in the lockout. But I knew there would be a lockout when I made this league and I always intended to start when hockey resumed. So let me know if you guys are still interested.

I`m already dropping and adding players. How i hate that the autopick chose my team.

Alfredsson, Gonchar, Boyle, St.Louis and Ray Whitney are the backbone of my team. Yay youth
Anyone interested in them?
