Fantasy KHL? Here we go!

Chris Wassel, here from Dobberhockey with the following message.

Hello everyone! It is sad that the NHL is locked out just but we have created something that at least will help any fantasy hockey withdrawal that is still out there.

We have created the Fantasy KHL with the blessing of yes the KHL via their marketing arm, Gazzprom (in the US). It is a very simple league and here is the link to the article.

As I gauge interest, I will have an idea of how many divisions to make, etc. This has been quite the endeavor and I can not thank everyone here for all of their support.

Sincerely,

Chris Wassel

How many roster players would work best (that includes bench, etc.)?
I would say for the best interest in the league smaller rosters would work best. It's one thing to have deep rosters for an NHL league but there simply won't be enough people who care to have third/fourth liners from the KHL on their fantasy team.

I would say a total roster size of no more than about 12-15 players, including bench. Maybe something like 2C, 2LW, 2RW, 4D, 2G, 3BN.

How would you like your draft? Via a platform like CoverItLive perhaps?
CoverItLive seems like it's exactly what we're looking for to do this.

Lastly, THW Live will be covering the league each week, would you be willing to come on the show for your take?
Yessir.

I agree. I don't know many guys (aside from the NHL crew) over there so I probably won't join but if I did, definitely smaller rosters

Yessir.
Basically what we were shooting for was a roster of 9-12 players max...it makes lives easier and with the scoring system being pretty easy, that helps as well. A little background on this. This league almost got off the ground last year. We had the blessing of the KHL and their marketing arm in NYC before the plane crash sadly. If we go a 3-2-1 or 4-3-2 it would be with 3 bench players regardless and honestly I am just humbled by the demand.

This truly has been something amazing when the search began to create fantasy leagues with the absence of NHL hockey but it has been an interesting trip. That thanks goes to all the readers.

Chris

I'd definitely join. Also I agree that the smaller the roster the better.

Sounds good. I may have to divide this into two separate leagues but I am going to condense the details a bit more and work with the people from CoverItLive to set up a good draft date for everyone involved if possible. It should be in a couple weeks or so.
