I would like to know more than the half hour before, but its not a big deal. Random order right before makes the draft entertaining.

I totally forgot about this too... thanks for reminding me. I am naming my team The Ogre-ites just so he doesn't think I was literally harshing on him in the CBA thread.

As for the lottery system setup today, I'm fine with it. Snake-draft right?

I get the thinking that I'm probably late to join this?

Yep, this filled up pretty quickly once the thread started.


For the lottery I ran a random number generator with each team being assigned 5 numbers. Greendale Hockey won with the first number being 14, then me with 56, all the way down to Donny, who had to wait until 32 numbers were drawn before one of his 5 showed up. It is a snaked draft, of course.

I'm happy for once with the order. A draft tradition for me is drafting smack-dab in the middle of the round almost every time...I still don't think I've had a #1 pick since around 2003.

Also everyone please put your screenname as your team's slogan. That makes things much easier to keep track of who's who.

Will probably have to find another league then. No worries. If there's enough Penguins fans for another league?

Coolio. I get to draft 4th. I'm sure one of Crosby or Malkin will still be up for grabs there

Hmmm, better go edit my rankings

With 12 and 13 I am picking two goalies. You're all hosed. By the way should we start using the Yahoo board instead?

Greendale Hockey is looking to pick either Alison Brie or Gillian Jacobs with the 1st overall selection. Just having trouble seeing them on the rankings list though.

this is my first ever league with Shots on Goal as a stat. I have to redo all of my equations in excel and have no idea how to weight it

PS: Yahoo! changed the max games played default to 40. It should be 48

PPS: Has anyone not played a roto that doesn't understand exactly ho the max games played works? Its always embarrassing to watch someone mess it up and run out of games with a month left.

*raises hand*

Never been in any league before (except my current head to head keeper league). So yeah, this is new to me.

If anyone would care to elaborate on the games played factor, that would be great.
