The settings need to be changed. Goalies have no value. Bergeron was the most valuable player last year and Shawn Horcoff doubled the amount of fan points Ovechkin had last year.

I have been playing around with it a little and will have it figured out by the end. I am going to make goalies more valuable don't worry. Shutouts (being the most rare of the stats) is going to be the single biggest point getter.

Can someone give me a quick run down of how Yahoo fantasy hockey works? I'm more familiar with ESPN's version.

I'd like to play if there is a spot. I promise not to be the guy that keeps drafting all the Blues players

We will have our live draft on Sept 15th, we will all need to pick enough players to fill our rosters. You will need 2Cs 2RW 2LW 4D and 2GOALIES. You also pick 4 bench players that you can substitute in. You will need to set your roster everyday before the games start.

The league I setup is head to head which means each week you will be going against a different player. The player with the most points at the end of the week gets the win. Your win-loss record (not your points total) will determine your place in the standings. After week 21 the playoffs will begin, the top 8 teams will compete for the championship. The teams that were not fortunate enough to land a playoff spot will compete for the consolation championship.

Actions that give points (subject to change)
Goals - 3
Assist - 1
Plus/Minus - 1
PP Goals - 2
SH Goals - 5
GWG - 2
Shots - .5
Faceoffs Won - 1
Hits - .5
Blocks - .5

Goaltender
Win - 3
Saves - .1
Shutout - 10

Ugh get rid of faceoffs and change the settings to pp points and sh points. And right now those settings make shots and every other stat worth more than goals and assists. Faceoffs are a terrible fantasy stat.

Thanks for the suggestions, trust me I am not nearly done tweaking it yet. I don't want to completely get rid of faceoffs but I am going lower the value. I think faceoffs add a little bit more value of a quality center. I like your idea to change it for PP points. I might add in SH points but want to keep SH goals since they are very rare and should be rewarded as such.

Edit: I don't want to take out stats like hits, blocks and faceoffs due to the amount of players in this league. I have never ran a league with so many players. With so many fantasy gms all the top offensive players are going to go very fast so I am trying to make utility players have a bit of value seeing as each team is going to end up with more than a few. I just did a recent batch of edits. If anyone has anymore issues feel free to post em here.

Yup. And you can go in and change the predraft ranking as well.

I gotta miss it because I work, but I tweaked the rankings a bit. Hopefully my team isn't too crappy.

Good quick draft guys.I'm pretty happy with my team overall. Now it'll be awesome if everyone shows up all season (if there is one).

Can't believe I missed the first half. I really need a solid starting goalie (they were all gone by the time I jumped in).

Underslept any chance I could pry Pavelec from you. I have plethra of strong LW although if u ask for Ovi u will probably have to throw in sweetner.
