No more auto picking, it's bed time. Start it back up tomorrow around 10am. Even NHL GM's sleep during these hectic times.

Flyers agree to the deal. Can't argue starting with Tavares and Lundqvist

I would say keep it 2 hours the 1st 2 rounds and then go to 1 hour.

Well, I was trying to speed things up. Getting through 20 picks in one day.. the first day is a little disappointing. I hope guys are more goug-hoe than this. C'mon guys, let's ****ing do this ****!

In the later rounds, that's a great pace.. but to get through 20 picks on the first day when everyone's supposed to be excited to start.. it's slower than turtle speed. I figured we'd be in the mid to late 2nd by now for sure.

I've been in drafts where the time limit per pick was 12 hours and it moved a hel of a lot faster than this. If this doesn't speed up and guys don't start showing more interest.. I won't be paying nothing for this league. I need to see guys who are committed and want this as much as I do. So far, I'm not convinced.

If guys are auto'd for 2 straight picks, I'm going to have them replaced. I'm sure there are TONS of guys who'd love to be in this league.

BTW, JM, does Carolina have a GM?

Dude just take it easy with the rule changes and stuff. I've got the rule that it's 3 straight picks.

Carolina has a GM, he sent me a list for his pick.

I don't mind getting 20 picks in the first day. I don't think that's bad.

Yea it's not like we are rushing to finish the draft because the season is starting soon. We have plenty of time

sorry, I meant 3. I really did. If they're auto'd/miss 3 straight picks.. we find a replacement.

Also, it just says "reserved" for Carolina so I wasn't sure.

Carolina is a friend of mine who was having problems registering with hfboards. He's in now and is definitely a part of the league.

Also, 20 picks is bad. Not gonna lie. When a league is brand new and there's a fantasy draft, guys should be ready to explode jizzism all over the place. If things don't pick up, I'll be having to really think about this. I don't want to throw $100+ away.

I'm a patient person and I'm don't stressing.. I just want everyone to know. So if some of these guys are your buddies, or you know them from other leagues.. tell them to pick it up please. If the 1st round is like this then I don't even want to think what the mid to late rounds will be like. Might not even get the draft done befoe next season begins LOL..

Anyway, it might seem like I'm stressing, I'm not. I'm definitely disappointed in the start though. I want nothing more than this to work out and all of us to have an amazing time drafting/playing fantasy hockey.. and I'm going to give this my absolute all.. also, I'm hopefully things will pick up. I just want to be forthcoming about everything.

It's not the time.. it's the excitement I figured everyone would have.

I dunno, when I'm in a draft/league.. I never miss a thing. I'm in it full tilt. Even when I'm in dead last (actually, that's never happened before).. even when I'm not doing well (wait, that hasn't happened either).. when things are boring.. I'm still in it to win it.

I've just never been in a draft where the 1st round takes more than a few hours. I've been in drafts where the time limit per pick was 12 hours and the 1st round was still done in maybe an hour or two.

Also, I'm going to make decisions. If JM's offline and things are stagnated. I'm gonna try and switch things up.. make things better. I'm not the type of person who is going to ask permission. If you don't like it, tell me to leave and I will. No problem. If JM's around, I'll always ask his advice. I'm 50/50 partners with him. When I switched up the time limit I didn't have 1 complaint. We got more picks in too. Had I not switched, we'd probably still be at like 17.

Anyway, I wasn't switching the rule about guys being auto'd 3 times snd they're replaced. I made a typo. I meant to say 3. And tbh, I forgot JM even made that a rule.. I remembered him briefly suggesting it but I didn't know it was law.

So, does the GM who is up now have 1 hour tomorrow since LA picked at just after 12?

Also, how does Getzlaf make it to 21? I mean, it was a toss-up between he, Kopitar, and Tavares for me. Getzlaf's a beast in terms of fantasy.

Yea but switching the time limit after everyone thinks it's 2 hours is a little unfair. Obviously no one made their picks in the time limit and they should be sending lists but.. If it keeps up like this and a bunch of people miss their picks I'll make it mandatory to send a list.

It's unfair to keep everyone waiting to. I mean, I understand people have lives.. but you gave people days to realize the draft was starting on Monday, there was a time limit, and if you weren't going to be around to send a ****ing short list.

I dunno man, what's more ****ing ignorant? Shortening the time limit or people having no consideration for others and there being a draft?

I honestly almost feel like saying **** this, starting my own threads about a league, actually screening people (I know a TON of guys who'd be great for fantasy hockey.. and would want in my league just because I'm running it), having people right me a short little message as to why I should let them in.. if I don't already know them, and having the league ran the way I want it ran.

I mean, no offense or anything, but I change the time limit, and make a typo and it's like I'm the anti-christ here. I'm just upset that it appears we have half or more of a league of deadbeats. I mean it would be nothing for me to start a league and actually screen people. Not just take the first 30 guys who want in.
