Another Fantasy League Poll: Condensed Draft or Seperate 'Em

Basically just asking if we should include prospects and normal players all in one draft or do two seperate ones.

I think a combined draft would be better, requiring more strategy through the draft and would also likely level off the amount of unused players.

Combined would be much more convenient and less mediocre roster fillers IMO.

If we go with it, it'll be fun watching to see where Crosby/Ovechkin/Lehtonen ends up (rounds wise).

The New Jersey Devils select Crosby 1st overall?

I find it funny that co-GMs Maddy and HNIC can't decide which to pick.

What the hell, combine them. My previous stance had much do with my first overall selection in the prospect draft, but realistically, this is a better option in terms better teams this year on the main roster

There'll be an asskickin' if you combine them now, after me spending all morning drafting up a list of 140 players to send you. I'll have to redo the whole bloody thing.

Don't see why, just plug Crosby, Ovechkin and Lehtonen/Phaneuf wherever you see fit.

I'd just prefer no asskickin' myself.

Well, I'll check back around 4pm to see if you've decided and then modify it if needs be. Hopefully I won't need to.

thank you for asking this!

I am all over the combined draft. Why? Because the NHL has been out of commission for a year and a half. There are a lot of prospects getting finely tuned to make a MAJOR impact right out of the gates, being nurtured in the AHL or Europe.

Meanwhile, there are a lot of past stars filling up on Doritos and watching every episode of American Idol - Keith Tkatzuk.

I would far rather take my chances on the emergence of Jerrid Aulin than Keith-baby. I think that makes it a lot more fun.

The NHL is going to have a radically new face in 2005-2006 - why not try to reflect this in our Fantasy League? To me that is way more fun.

Plus, considering that we are going to play multiple seasons, the combined draft makes each of us REALLY REALLY think about who we are picking --- way more FUN!

I'll back you up and vote separate draft ..

I have no idea how EA will rank prospects so to minimize the risk involved in drafting them I think it would be good to know what you have already ..

Two seperates...

You'd have to redo the entire draft order that way too.

Hang on, so can asst. GM's vote in this?

If so, then I'm going out recruiting just to pad the poll, Mess, I'd suggest you do the same.

Um, no I wouldn't.

And yes asst. GMs can vote, though I hope you don't just recruit one for the hell of it.

I myself as Fergy Jr would say have already " procured and secured" the best assistant GM in the business in Leaf Army ..

In case I fire myself mid season the team will be in good hands ..

Some of you are putting a LOT more time into this then I am.
I've heard a few people drawing up lists of a few hundred players... my list is a grand total of 0.
I'm going to wing it the entire way.

I'd like to change my vote to one condensed draft, LeeIs makes a pretty good argument for it in the other thread.... and besides it helps to cut down on the massive overkill in number of players drafted.
