Good luck to all of y'all participating. I'll play the part of the band-wagon fan and root for all of your players who are on the AVs real roster!

We have draft order, but I have worst position
One more try ?

1. kaizer
2. DRL
3. bling
4. Horse House
5. MM
6. NewBlood
7. Joey 13
8. RockLobster
9. Nightspore
10.Super Joe Sakic
11.Avsfan 101
12.Amphytron
13.xalcyx
14.Sakic's-A-Legend
15.Foppa2118
16.Jori
17.Lunachiken
18.Hasbro - 've got Naslund in first round, btw
19.Record Robot
20.bleedgreen

It's draft order for 1st, 3rd, 5th ... and so on rounds. In 2nd, 4th, 6th etc... draft order is reversed.
Screenshot for 1st and 2nd rounds:

DRL and Jori have accounts to see that everything was fair.

Now we can start to draft players at HF according draft order. Remember that we will draft 320 players and everyone will not be with PC at time so we should start a bit earlier to have time to wait.
Few questions:
- Date ? I'm for start at Monday or Sunday. I think every GM needs 2-3 days for prepare his wishlist according his draft position except DRL who already started to draft
- Trades with picks during draft (trade up - trade down) ? It will be fun and I'm for it, but number of picks should stay consistent. F.e. you trade 2 picks - you've got 2 picks or we will have troubles
- Stats categories for League ? I've advised stats categories in first post and there were no replies - I assume that everyone agrees.
- Type ? Most players are for Rotisserie.

PS Guys and Girls, please, be sure that you'll commit to draft and season. Last year we had few bad examples

Adam sinister, expatriated_texan, Bubba Thud , Roman Tunner. Guys, sorry, but others were a bit faster and Yahoo limits maximum number of players with 20 but if someone drops out you'll be in.

What about positions, and how many for each? I always like it when there's a Utility position in addition to the regular ones. Also will we have max games played for position at 82 x however many spots per position?

I agree about Utility position. It's good one and i like it so much that I forgot it's not in standart settings. As I said before I think standart configuration looks OK + utility.
To remember : C, C, LW, LW, RW, RW, D, D, D, D, Util, G, G, BN, BN, BN, IR.
Number of max games from last season was OK (82 per position), Imo

That's what I figured, just double checking. Looking forward to the draft, although I wish there was someway to make it a little closer to the start of the season. There's still some good players out there without contracts.

What do you think about the idea of keeping the posts in the draft thread to just the picks, and maybe a reminder on who's up next to pick? Any comments about the draft we could post in this thread. That way it would keep the draft thread from being too cluttered, since we're going to have 320 posts in it anyway. Just an idea.

I think we should wait until the end of the draft to start trading players.

A Monday start to the draft would work better for me, as I have my Football draft on Sunday. Of course, picking 19th, it's possible we may not get to me until Monday even if we started on Sunday.

No worries Kaizer! I still appreciate what you're doing for the board.

If I could get someone to walk me through the process and everything they did afterwards, I might be a bit quicker to join up next year. Sounds like a load of fun but as I've never been in a fantasy game before I think I might've bogged down the process this year causing more frustration for others than my usual posts.

Good luck to all of you!

Just a question about drafts...what happens in regards to players like Stastny? Is he available to be picked? What happens if someone picks him and he doesn't make the roster? Is that just part of the gamble? At this point Paul could be huge for the AVs and rack up quite a few points, but if he ends up playing in the AHL does the person who drafted him just suck it up and lose everything?

It depends on the league. I know with Yahoo, they wont even list Stastny until he plays a few NHL games, so nobody will be able to draft him. If he starts the season with the Avs, somebody within the league could pick him up as a FA or off the waiver wire.

Darn just missed it. I was in the league last year (JoeSakic4MVP), and had the fourth best team or something. Good luck on the league guys.

When will the league be up to log into?? I'm for a draft any day; however if it is during the week, maybe we can do it in the evening??

BTW, is that list of the first and second rounds just a mock draft situation??

No, we will try to draft offline (here at HF) and then will submit results to Yahoo (just fill rosters).

i would prefer to do it live here due to my time constraints. i'm extremely busy and if possible...would prefer to do the draft on a weekend. btw, i have the best draft position...smack dab in the middle.

kazier...what's with the screen shot? is it a mock result? when's the draft going to be done here on HF? i'm all for doing it on sunday. i also would prefer a H2H league...makes it more competitive.
