As the first poll was created and I think most had voted before the Father's Day question came up, how about a new multi-choise poll open for 48 or 72 hours?
The poll would have the option to mark every starting time possible during the two days? The timeframe would be from the morning of Saturday(EST) to late evening Australian time on Sunday with 2 hour intervals. The time getting most votes would be the one that the draft is held on.

I have no problem with posting a revised poll but we need better participation. Half of the GM's did not even vote so the result of the first one scares me as it stands only 12 out of 30 teams have officially confirmed that the 17th works for them.

The other challenge is that we have several 'away' notices atm so a couple of GM's that previously voted will not be able to do so again.

Where are the rest of you?

Sometimes what should be a simple thing becomes so overly complicated it's frustrating

Im afraid that if we do that and have several choices to pick from, each category would only end up with 0-3 votes because the opinion would be so spread out. If we have a poll like that, we ought to give the voters the capability to select several choices - i.e. check all times that would work for them instead of one selection that works best.

If you read my post again, you might notice that is exactly the type of poll I was talking about:

My apologies... didn't read carefully enough I guess. Regardless, this is something we should resolve ASAP. Our draft is only about 2 weeks away and we're wasting a lot of time. I personally think we should just go with the results of our first poll and go with the standard 10:00AM EDT starting time as we always have. How many polls do we need to figure out when we're going to draft? Just because we do another poll doesn't guarantee that there will be better participation (especially if it is only a 2 or 3 day window to vote). We should just go with the idea that the people who didn't respond don't care when it is because they can't make either day or don't have any picks in the first three rounds anyway.

2pm would be very bad for me, lol night shifts at my work start at 5, if it's at night i should have a decent time getting a night shift off... or if it's a day shift i wouldn't be done in time unless it was after 5, so if i get one or the other i'm screwed out of the draft... if it is after 5 i should be able to make it, but 2pm is pretty much impossible for me unless i don't get booked on either shift which is very unlikely.

i started the thread but only as a communication. i say we go with the results of the poll and thats that. no time will work for everyone no matter what.

besides, i dont want matt to have the draft stolen from him over my post.

just my two cents, now I am back to the ****** beer and stinking hot weather.

I'll put an end to this. It's not my personal preference, but we'll move forward with holding the draft on the 17th at 10 AM EST (GMT -5:00).

Thanks Robb! :-) Hope all is good in China. Any good young goalies over there for me to draft? You might have ****** beer, but at least you are missing the frigging flooding in Calgary today... ugh.

Well I've got the schedule now. And by schedule I mean that the tournament has been cancelled because only 7 of the 12 or so teams in our league have entered into it. Participation just wasn't there. So that makes me available for whatever day or time we hold the draft.

Cool! Then it's possible I can participate for a while! I will still send my list in, but I do believe there's a chance I can "go live"

I will very likely not be there for the start of the draft, so everyone who wants to participate better gets his password for the chat... the sooner the better...

It will be 10:00AM Eastern Daylight Time, which I believe would be 16:00 Swedish time.

Panthers have theres now. Mild brain fart, forgot to send Tony the email. Also the Canucks won't be applying for one because Sean is away and I'm drafting for him.

Just curious - why is Edmonton obvious? Are Matt and Andrew in teh same area these days?

Also, do we know the status of San Jose? Last I heard, Dave was stepping down, but I don't know if a replacement has been identified. Was Dave going to run the draft as a swan song? (Or better yet, stick around?)

It's also an issue for Free Agency, since Dave has at least two major pending UFAs, and an incoming GM might want the chance to lock them up before July 1...

I think Tony may have been thinking about the Sharks, but I could be wrong.
