Obviously if someone skips there first 2 picks they obviously do not want to be apart of this league. If they wont give up any of their time to make a pick why should we give up our time waiting. They need to be replaced
See, this is why I'm leaving the points category.. so goals and assist do count twice. Also, even if they did count as 2 they'd still be counted the same. This isn't a points league.. it's a head to head league where you try and win as many categories as you can against your opponent. There are 16 categories.. you try and beat your opponent in as many of them as you can. Not gonna count the goals category as two wins.. that's ********. Sure, it can be argued goals are more important than hits and blocked shots but not always. Sometimes a huge hit changes an entire game.. a lot like a late period goal or an early period goal when you're down by two. A big blocked shot can also change the game.. or even prevent that goal that would've put a team up by 3 in the third period. This is what I mean when I say that this league will capture those little things that don't show up on the score sheet. Also, how important is that 5th goal in a 5-1 game? Or the 2 empty betters a team scores in the final minute of a game a team must win to make the playoffs. Not every goal is a game winner. Oh.. game winning goals is a category too I might add.
Guys, trust me.. I know what I'm doing.
I for one like the system you set up. The points thing gives scorers more value then regular grinders who just hit.
This was outlined from the start. hits is one category. in a 1v1 matchup if your tean has better scorers, you win 3, and lose hits...
So this whole time I've been a little bit skeptical on the point system since everything is weighted the same and now that others brought it up I decided to bring something up. My original thought was that the league was going to be a points league (whoever gets the most points wins), and I didn't realize head to head was so much of a difference.
I've given a bit of thought to it and I think everyone needs to chill out, and just try out this system. You might really like it, you might not. If a lot of the league does not like it then we can always do something later, but for now you can not just give up on it before you know how it works.
System stays the same, stop with the ****ing personal comments and chirps.
I'm really glad everything is working out. You all seem like great guys and I want to be a part of a great league. Trust me guys, this will be a lot of fun. If we don't like the scoring format we can look at changing stuff up but give it a go.
I've been in fantasy hockey for the better part of 20 years guys. I've been in all types of leagues and this is by far the best way to do it. Like someone pointed out earlier.. if you have the better offensive team in a 1v1 that week, you most likely win goals, assists, points, gwg, stpts, and sog. Those are all offensive categories and favour the offensive players. Trust me, the best players are still the best players. Just like goalies, there's only 4 categories dedicated to them but they're still huge pieces. They score well in SHTOI too.
You guys will love how this scoring format gives value to all players. The grinders aren't just fodder in your lineup, the defensive Dmen aren't just fodder in your lineup. This format is realistic and really gives your team a real life feel.
