Actually, off the top of my head there is one open slot. Maybe. Following up on that now, actually. In a perfect world I'll have this league set up today, but it's been a less than perfect world for the last week or so.

Shattenkirk (D - 2.02 fp/g)
Zucarello (LW,RW - 2.22 fp/g)
Pomenville (RW - 2.25 fp/g)
Lupul (LW,RW - 2.31 fp/g)
Spezza (C - 2.48 fp/g)
Bergeron (C - 2.59 fp/g)
Miller (G - 2.53 fp/g)


All these guys are available. I'm looking for picks in the first two rounds and I'm willing to consider names not on this list, and of course multiple names for a single pick. Basically I'm willing to deal.

Is the keeper deadline really midnight tonight? And are we standing pat with our goalie scoring situation?

Hey beef if you could let me know what's going on i would appreciate it. I've been away for about a week and didn't see any sort of messages before I left. I hope I didn't miss the keeper deadline

Don't worry, you'll be fine. We have another guy coming in to replace HC so he needs to be given time to pick his keepers. I'm working on doing that now.

I picked Sunday because I forgot completely that I was going to be on the other side of the state in a drunken stupor all weekend.


This has not been the world's smoothest offseason and I apologize for that, guys.


I spent a good chunk of my drive yesterday keeping myself awake by thinking about the goalie situation. And I'm starting to lean towards keeping everything the same. I really, really dislike that the best I can do is keep the great goalies at the same level while boosting the crappy goalies. That's not what I'm trying to do. And I ran through a lot of scenarios that pretty much all just ended that way, or otherwise just borked the numbers completely.

Defensemen will be seeing stat boosts to blocked shots and hits. I'm considering boosting +/- as well. PIMs are gonna go away completely because that's a terrible stat to benefit from.

That's where we stand.

To be clear, an idea of what I want here might be Bergeron + Spezza + 3rd/4th pick for a 1st (with how early the first is determining whether my pick is a 3 or 4).

I'll be away for the week so hopefully the keepers won't be due and draft won't be occurring soon. No need to rush

Helping people move. It can be pushed back since there's only one draft this year.

The good news is the draft begins on Sunday. The bad news is, when I hit Finalize Draft Order, it shifted the draft date back to July and reset the draft picks to their original order. So, that was horrible. All rosters got blanked. Thanks a ****ing lot, Fantrax.

So, I'm going to go back through and fill everyone's rosters again and you'll have to pick your keepers again. I could try to go through support, but that has only ever made things worse in the past.

Oh, and I've added takeaways as a stat to replace PIMs. Each takeaway is equal to a shot. The league leader had 83 takeaways last year, so it's not going to be an enormous change. And I figure in today's posession-driven game, a takeaway is a a change in possession and therefore shots prevented, so it might as well be equal.

That is a good change, I like it.
What time is the draft sunday?

and would you like a few dollars to help cover the cost of the league?

Nah, league cost is fine.

Draft begins at 2pm Eastern. I ended up contacting support anyways; if they fail, I wouldn't turn down help from anyone to re-fill the rosters.

Are we still doing the 24 hrs to make a pick rule?

Edit: And how do we set keepers and prospects?

It's gonna be a 13 hour pick. Set email alerts!


Keepers...your roster ought to be filled soon. Either Fantrax will finally ****ing respond to my email, or I'll go through and refill all the rosters manually, which is a ***** with prospects.

Keepers can be set by going to Keeper Admin under the Team menu in the option bar. Prospects are anyone with less than 82 games of experience; they can exceed 82 games and remain in your prospect pool, but once you call them up afterwards they can't go back down. Your prospects will be designated by me when I refill the team, or when Fantrax gets off their ass.

A reminder about the draft: There is no prospect draft this year. Prospects will be up for grabs in the regular draft. Everyone has a prospect pool at this point so there's no reason to force it.

LOL.

Sure, that works too. That would make my life a lot easier. That's thinking smarter, not harder.


...though it just dawned on me that all the draft picks might have gotten ****ed up, so we might need to do a rollback no matter what.

I'm stillllllll working with Fantrax to see if this can be rolled back easily. Would've been done two days ago if not for those two days being unexpectedly absurd. I still hope to have draft on Sunday, but if not it won't kill us to push it back a week since we only have the one draft now.

OK. So the solution is to delete the current league and re-copy the old one. That should bring everything including draft picks back. BUT. We will still need to select our keepers again.

I'll send a leaguewide email as a reminder. We may need to push the start of the draft back a bit. We'll see.

I forgot do we need to select the prospects within the keeper tool as well?
