no both Biron and Gerber are considered to be as a starter. Gerber as of now is Ottawa's #1, and I would think Biron is a #1 in Philly.

Hey guys, I decided to make this into a Keeper League. Pretty much Contracts are what it says on nhlnumbers.com.

I will post more about it later but, pretty much your the General Manager of your team. After next season finishes you have a choice to remain with your team or you can PM me and ask to be fired. I will then fire you, and you can get hired by another team if it has an open slot to keep things fresh for you guys. There already has been a firing/hiring which is located on the draft thread (not chat).

When making your picks you should consider not only what will get you the best for next year but for the coming years as a general manager. More info will be posted later about it though.

Also you don't have to worry about it now but whenver your player is set to become an unrestricted free agent and you want to sign him to a new contract, the managers and me will all discuss the length of the contract and the price.

oh sorry:

A keeper league means this is not only for this year but for numerous years. So the team your deciding now will be for next year and the future years (unless you asked to be fired).

So this is a once and only draft, after doing this draft we won't have another one next year, the teams will remain the same, you can always get fired as the GM and be hired from a new team though. Does that make any sense?

Yup that's pretty much what it is, the same teams and stuff and we'll have them for a couple years. However people tend to get bored with there own teams so if there's an opening slot for a GM, then you can asked to be fired to get a new team.

haha and to make it more interesting, if you don't mind and have time when you make a pick, post the picture of the player and stuff to make it more appealing i guess. You don't have to, only if you want to.

Oh, i just think ideally Gerber should be backup to a lot of teams, but ottawa has to play him anyways because they have no other choice.

Who's #1 in Tampa? Kolzig or Smith?

Maybe we should make a list of all the 30 starting goalkeepers?

Maybe we should do it by expectations for next year? What happen if I draft Gigučre and Belfour, Gigučre starts 60 games and during the season Toskala has to undergo surgery, so belfour plays alos more than 50 games?

I have no backup and I loose these points?

[EDIT] I just saw your previous post... [/EDIT]

Hey guys good questions, if a goalie gets injured pretty much it's "tough luck". Just how it is in actual hockey, if Roberto Luongo gets injured they would have to go with there back-up and he would be the starting goaltender. However there is UFA, any remaining goalies end up there or you could always trade.

The reason for this is, the goalies get a lot of points, for wins, shutouts and etc. So I don't want someone to pick say Brodeur, and then pick Fleury or something like that if he ended up trading with someone. Two amazing goalies will you get a lot more points than a player probably would.

So theres 2 options for this:

1. Find a website that allows scratches, thus making it much easier. *Then you could pick any two goalies you want, and the starter would get points, the back-up on your team would get points whenever you PM any managers or me.

2. Me and the managers do points manually, it'll be harder on us but if we have to do it we will.


Anyone who has any ideas just PM me, it's the first time I've ever created a league,been in lots just never created one before. PM me or other managers, and we'll discuss the thing about the goalies, as of right now no one really has to worry so I'll post the solution soon.

And yes it's pretty much for expectations for next season. If anyone knows of a great website to keep track of the whole pool it would really come in handy. Something which lets us have scratches and stuff like that.

Also if anyone has used Yahoo Fantasy Hockey Pool is there a feature on that where you can scratch goaltenders or make it possible so your back-up won't get points.

For example: Someone has both Luongo and Brodeur.

Starter: Brodeur *only one that gets points unless YOU decide to switch*

Backup: Luongo (wont get points until you decide to make him the #1

Okay guys since the next guy isn't picking I decided I will include a fine. $3 Million from Chicago's Cap Space. I will give him Alexander Ovechkin as he is the highest person with points.

4$ Million is the fee for missing your turn, normally in the first round you would be kicked but as we started it today, I'll let him have the fine 1 million less.

hey agent.. i pm you too.. but i believe that you leave the pick open and wait until he can make a pick while letting other gms continue with the draft.. that way we dont give these guys an ovechkin... while they dont do any work.. i hate that.. we have to be more aggressive with guys that miss the draft hour

so what do you suggest? Where in the draft would I put him, 3rd or ??.

Plus I don't really blame him too much, since it was the first day and we started it so fast which is why he got fined $3 Million as well.

keep his pick open and just message him to pick the minute he sees the message from you from the available players.. and continue with the draft.. its not really fair to give him ovechkin when the guy whos been waiting for an hour has him on top of his list... and its been 6 hours already.. starting the draft has no merit cuz he should atleast check this forum once a night..

I agree with this. Missing a turn can happen and I find that a 3M$ fine is hard. Letting the selection open is a disadvantage, but it's more fair.

But if we get 30 GMs we should try to replace the ones that are late.

Okay guys, then we'll make his pick whenever he gets on. The Draft will continue and Ovechkin is still available then. The Fine is $1 Million.

I find it surprising that I haven't received single offer/inquiry about the #3 pick. Players like Ovechkin are still available (every player but Crosby) and you could land your franchise an absolute superstar. I would be looking for a 1st + 2nd round picks for my 1st (3rd overall) round pick and a later round pick. PM me with any offers. I have to pick by 1:20 PST tomorrow and I would like to have any deal done a couple of hours before then.
