Aw... can't we keep minor drafts going for as long as possible and refuse to start ATD until they are done?

Book it. December 20th to 31st, two-picks-a-day draft, like we did the 2011 Double-A Draft.

Those who who will be online during the holidays and want some hockey history gaming, heads up!

(That gives us from November 19th to December 20th to do the AAA 2013 postseason: a full month! No prob.)

What an awesome name! (My friend google tells me Rome, NY is where they played, in JFK Civic Arena where a few minor league professional teams have played, like the Copper City Chiefs, a former NY Rangers affiliate.)

Hedberg continues his reality-based fish-themed teams.

Well, I'm gone in the morning gents for 8 days so I should be back to make my pick on the 25th, if not I'll make up any missed picks when I get back. Looks like we got 10 GM's for this which is good for the 3rd draft of the year.

I counted 11 as of september 23rd. Who said they were in and hasn't chosen a team name yet? I know... I'm too lazy to check that closely tonight.

13 is a really ugly number for a draft, but we don't "need" one more. If we have to go with 13, the playoff structure is still workable. 3 get a bye, and the other ten play a preliminary round to get to five. Those five join up with the three who got byes, and we are down to 8.

If it makes it easier, I can bow out or join up with someone and make it 12. I don't have as much time as I thought I would.

Would somebody kindly link the list of already-taken players, and explain how exactly the draft will work?

Just for a newbie like myself...thanks!

The poll began on September 17th and no one had raised any concerns about the 700 am eastern time option that most voted for, until... hours before the draft was set to start.

Since a concern has finally been raised, then let's make it 10 am eastern time, to allow time for those in the pacific time zone time to wake up, 7am.

The exact time of day does not matter much, given it's the AAA level and this has worked perfectly well in the past (two years ago).

10 am then it is.

It's not true to say it has worked perfectly well in the past; the start time was never this early before, it was always a time when the central time zone was awake, or at least waking up. THAT was working perfectly well. 5 a.m. central would have been unprecedented.

Shall we talk about playoff format? I think top 3 getting byes is the easiest. Anyone else?
