Well done Dru

Lots of Tyutin requests.. he would have been my #1 but seeing the demand I'll go with:

Brassard - Blue
Russell - Blue
Dorsett - Blue
York - Blue (I'll give him some love)

I think it's clear that anyone posting from here on out really needs to give me their top 4 picks instead of only 2. BTW, where's the love for Chimmer, Manny, and Freddy Mo? I found it odd that I made zero Modin avatars last season. I know he was hurt but he's an assistant captain on our team.
Do a lottery system based on demand.

Count how many players get the most votes based on peoples' first choice... then sort the lottery by that... so if Nash gets the most first choices, he goes first.

Now, everyone who loses out on Nash... move onto their second choice -- Let's say... Pazzy. Include them in the drawing for Pazzy and then do the runoff again for the next player.

Just trickle down the line until everyone gets their pick

Super messy, but probably the most fair way to do it so that if someone doesn't get their first pick, they atleast get their second.

Another thought: segregate this into a first choice ONLY bracket... so if someone wants Tyutin first, then Pazzy second, they are eligible to atleast be in a 2nd round lottery with P

Here is what I would do (Since I just saw someone post a Top 15 list)

STEP 1: Get a show of hands of who wants one.

STEP 2: Order the posters by Post Counts or Join Date. Split into three equal sections.

Most Posters : Middle Posters : New Posters

Old Posters get the Blues, Middle get the Reds, Newest get the Silvers.


STEP 3: Three separate drafts.

Blue draft posters 1-25

Red draft posters 26-50

Silver draft posters 51-75


a mostly unbiased and fair way of doing things.


Blues for the old posters -> A Status symbol.

I'm sure someone would be able to compile the list.

DRAFTING would INCREASE our Summer excitement.

Tell me what you think of this....

I'm going to use this random list generator I found on the net: http://www.random.org/lists/

We'll go with a weighted list which means you get one "lottery ball" for every year you've been a poster on HFboards. Since, I don't think anyone one of us has been here since 2001, the breakdown looks like this.

2008 = 1 lottery ball
2007 = 2 lottery balls
2006 = 3 lottery balls
2005 = 4 lottery balls
2004 = 5 lottery balls
2003 = 6 lottery balls
2002 = 7 lottery balls

Each "lottery ball" you have equals the number of times your name goes on the list. For example, CBJSlash's name will be on the list 6 times. Once I get a master list, I'll throw it into the randomizer and we should have a fair, but weighted drafting order. From there, we'll just go down the list person by person until we are done.

I'm not going to compile the entire list of names until this Sunday. That way I should know who wants an avatar. Once the draft order is set, I'll add it to the first post of this thread and start PMing people who are on the clock. Anyone, that wants an avatar after the draft starts can be added to the back of the list. You can trade picks but let me know if you do!

Sound fair? I think it's goinig to be a fun way of doing things...

A thought I had is that I don't need to have "Exclusivity" on an avatar (unless that's the way you want it Dru, these are your awesome creations) Whatever I end up with, if others want the same Avatar, I have no problems sharing.

Once I make the avatar you want you are free to give to whomever you want. I honestly don't care. The only thing that bugs me is when 2 or 3 people are all sporting the same avatar. It makes reading posts slightly confusing. Well, to me anyhow...

I wasn't going to go for this at first (I was tempted to say "Yeah! Go for it! I'll take Foote/Gold" just for the lulz ), but then I thought of one that I would actually like and I figured would be unlikely to be taken. (Conklin/Gold, in case you're wondering.)

So, like, yeah, sign me up for the draft and such.

edit: And yes, I was able to find a decent picture.

i initially wasn't going to jump into the avatar madness, but i'm a sucker for lotteries and drafts.

the only question is, when i win the first pick do i draft the player that best fits my need or best player available?

also willing to play bill tobin to someone else's mel kiper jr., if need be.

You know... I put up the guys I wanted and the color I wanted. If I don't get them, then I guess I don't get them.

I think it's dumb that the avatars can't be the same for every person, and that a lottery has to be held. If people want to have an avatar of their favorite player, then let them have the avatar of their favorite player. And as for confusion, don't you think the fact that everyone will have the same general concept for an avatar won't be confusing enough? So who cares if 10 people have Rick Nash Blue, or Pascal Leclaire Red, or Doug MacLain puke green?

Just my two cents -- and if that disqualifies me from getting one of these avatars, then so be it.

I think the Lottery makes it a lil more fun ..And Why not have a lil fun with it .. Everyone wants 2 or 3 players this way the whole team is going to get some love and with all the work dru is putting in to them it will be nice to see them all ... it is done on other boards with positive results .. heck posters with high draft picks have gotten game tickets, beer ect. out of it ....I dont think its so much of having to do a draft as its kinda a fun way to do it
