Anyone know the status of HF Rangers 3 from last year?

Also, if anyone is starting a keeper league I'd be very interested in joining.

I think it's pretty good. You seem to start the EASHL drop-in games quicker, and I really like the new hitting engine. The only thing that gets annoying is that now, when you absolutely LEVEL a guy, their teammate can start a fight with you in retaliation (they can start a fight if you shoot the puck after a whistle, too).

It just gets annoying, especially if you have a defensive d-man, enforcer, or power forward, that has really high checking, and it seems (at least to me) that I get in way too many fights that I do not want to have, just because I had a big, clean hit.

Your RW and D look a little weak. Are there a lot of defensive stat categories that reward good defensive play like takeaways and blocked shots? Not a bad D if there are, but a little weak on the offensive side.

Your center and left wing depth is excellent.

The thing about this is you have to realize that you can't just recklessly charge into dudes anymore like you COULD in NHL13. You have to glide before you hit guys or take at most 3 strides. If you charge the guy violently then your going to have to fight. I think it's a cool feature that punishes the people that don't THINK before they hit. That's just me, though.

Oh and Jesper Fast and Lindberg aren't in the game because they haven't played an NHL/AHL game yet and are coming from over-seas leagues (I think that's how it works.) Therefore EA can't put them in, legally. If they HAVE played AHL games then I'm not sure what the deal is.

IMHO, my hits are not reckless. It's always open ice neutral zone when the puck carrier is coming towards me (and I seem to time it well), when they're trying to do a move into the slot with the puck, or when they are coming down the boards. Once you get your hitting to around 80, it's not that hard to time it, but my agility/str are also quite high.

Blocked shots and hits are both categories. Part of the reason I picked Hamhuis was that he plays for Tortorella now. As for RW depth, the hits will help with Franzen. Brent Burns might turn out to be a very solid pickup.

Also, keep in mind that there are 10 teams in this league. When you get 250 players in, every team is going to have a weakness somewhere.

They had them in last year (in nhl 13) in the SHL, so they must've taken them OUT of the game.

Fast and Lindberg were in the game in NHL 13 and Danny Kristo played 8 games with Hamilton towards the end of last year before the trade and he is also not in NHL 14 as well...

Yeah sucks but I don't hate the team it gave me. Plus I kinda like the challenge of trying to improve it.

I mean, I have Cindy and the reigning Vezina winner, so that's a pretty decent start.

Somehow I just won my baseball league, also. I'm a huge nerd with no life.

The past, pretty much 7 years of my fantasy hockey acumen has been in a very (and I mean VERY) deep keeper league run on ESPN.

I'm about to draft a standard h2h public league team on Yahoo! for the first time in a very long time.

I have the fourth overall pick.

**** it, taking Hank

Ah, that's annoying that since we drafted today, we're not going to get in on time for tonight's games. Lame!

Oh God! We don't even get to play the whole week now!? That's ridiculous.

C: Stepan, Galchenyuk
LW: Semin, Heatley
RW: Perry, Gaborik
D: Franson, Wiercioch, Seth Jones, Mark Fraser
G: Hank, Jimmy Howard
Bench: Ryan Miller, Nazem Kadri, Stephen Weiss, Michael Cammalleri

My D is hilariously awful, but I'm notorious for neglecting defense in fantasy hockey. This is a team that is capable of ****ing exploding offensively though, and should rarely lose goalie matchups. Should be a fun ride with them for the year

i can see nobody thought to draft Jacob Trouba. don't worry, neither did i, but he's a viable fill in, if you need another defenseman.
