Good to see we're at 32 teams. Best of luck to all. Whatever position I get doesn't matter to me. In a draft like this it depends on drafting wisely.

Yeah that's where I'm at right now.Too small a sample size to jump to conclusions yet.

I can vouch for Darth Yoda for sure. DemonsOnIce96, though, he just came out of nowhere.

If someone bails out at the last minute, I wouldnt mind being a first alternate. I've done a few of these and with hockey back on I have this bit of an itch lol

It would be amazing to have you back in this. You were one of the few GM's I was looking up for when I started those. Any GM's would be lucky to have you as a Co-GM if you wanna work with someone.

Agreed. I have a co-GM already but someone ought to team up with Murphy, an experienced veteran ATDer.

Should we require the newbies to get a co-GM? Either the newbies could co-GM with each other and veteran Murphy get a spot (we never said it was a 'first come, first served process'... letting experienced ATDers get spots first is fair), or... encourage one of them to team up with Murphy. Or,... an experienced ATDer who is pretty busy can benefit from co-GMIng and also have great conversations with him in PMs.

We should get a WAITING LIST started. Anyone still interested in joining speak up. Spaces could open up, especially with co-GMing encouraged.

If a spot opens up in the league I'll manage the Edmonton Mercurys

the Mercurys won the 1950 World Ice Hockey Championships in London, England, and the gold medal at the 1952 Winter Olympics in Oslo, Norway the last Canadian team to win the gold until 2002 Winter Olympics

You're a mod, you could just IP check their posts if you really wanted to.

Don't you think I've already done that???

if DOI is a fraud, he's gone through the proper channels to make sure he's not detected. that's all I can say.

In other words, he's on the same level as the rest of us.

We're working together using his team name, not mine. He will confirm this.

Well, judging by VI's avatar, he's not the type to hide behind a proxy. I mean, stock photo with watermarks...

(sorry VI, all in good fun, I just noticed that today and found it funny)

I don't even know what exactly the hell a 'proxy' is!! Is it like a slingbox for signing up somewhere. I have lived overseas for a decade and I never could figure out how to download and access "torrents" - thankfully streaming has done away with such steps - i am technologically phobic. a couple of years ago i put out a post for a step by step help to show me how to even link an avatar. upload a photo? gawd i never learned how to use the mp3 player on my cell phone and sold off my laser printer with high resolution neg scanner simply because i could never use it! ... you can imagine how many features i used to use on one of those high fangled vcr's that used to be all the rage)

I PM'd spitfire11 to do just that but then TheDevilMadeMe objected and wants to have the process be different. Ask TDMM.

Does anyone else like the idea of choosing our draft order if we have a no-trade draft?

If nobody else cares, I'll drop it.

Need to know more about how the process would work? Are there multiple rounds?...choose a position, positions are assigned, second round for those that didn't get their first choice. Or would we rank our top 3? Or something else?
