Hockey pool anyone(keeper league)?

Regular season addition! It was a pretty good time the last time around. Maybe we can change some rules around to make it not just about goals and assists, but also have points for hits and face off wins abd stuff. Make it 12 Forwards, 6 Defensemen and 2 goalies and have "x" amount of players still be on ELC. So on and so forth. What's everyone think?

I'd be in. Didn't see what you guys did last year, was it like a Yahoo league where you set daily rosters or just pick em at the start of the year and that's it? I'd love to get into a Yahoo type league with some people from here, can even set it up if others want.

It's basically a draft league except with the addition of being allowed to carry over a set amount of players from your previous year - at least as far as I understand it.

Keeper league is just like any regular draft (hockey, baseball, football etc) except it isn't just a 1 year pool, you play each year and each team is allowed to keep "x" number of players (in most of the ones I'm in 4 but it varies).

It's more fun than one year pools if you can get the commitments. Also changes the value of certain players, top rookies might not have much value for THIS season but can be huge down the road. Some keeper leagues also allow for a prospect pool where you can draft anyone who is rookie eligible and they don't have to be on your actual roster which allows for even longer more depraved leagues

If guerzy doesn't have room in his keeper league, I'd be open to starting one, or joining one. Do you need 30 people?

Yahoo has a max at 20. Im in a keeper league with 18 and its pretty difficult for everyone to get decent goaltending, heck some managers never make the required games played.

So that's five for a keeper league, I think 12 should be a good number. Come on guys!

I was in the playoff pool, never been in a keeper pool, but I'd be up for it ...

if you are looking for a good hockey pool site, I've been in one at hockeydraft.ca for a few years
...it's a great site with several options, incl keeper pools, but there is a $20 fee to use it..
($20 total, not $20 per person)

That's not bad. I unfortunately don't have a credit card, so whoever sets it up can take care of that if they wish. I'm sure that there's free sites around though.

Ok...that's awesome...who's gonna set it up and foot the bill or find a free place. Come on now, everyone do the customary reach like you do when you go out with your frie d's and you all jockey for the bill.
