If we're having this many people, we definitely need to not have full rosters again this year.

Definitely! We now have 18 players:

Casework
Cydawg
CBJFreak
kidAcbj
forktie
jagpanzer
jacketshockey
President Madagascar
Samkow
ShelleyFan45
KOtollefsen
PCH
GQS
AlienLanes82
scrogs63
Mogilny89
Timeless Winter
and myself


Barring further developments this is the make-up for League #2. With so many, I think we will definitly have to limit the roster to prevent the same talent squeeze we had last season. We need to start discussing when would be a good time for a draft. According to Yahoo! registration will start in "early September."

I have been dragging my feet about finalizing the league because I would like to see if there are enough people to make a third league. With 18 in our league all we need is 6 more and we could split into two leagues of 12.

it's not real complicated. basically all the players are throw into a pool, everyone gets to pick their team (each league decids how many players at each position you need) and then you accumulate points based on G, A, PTS, SH, PPG, +/-, SV%, SO, etc, etc

how much each statistical category is worth points-wise also varies from league to league.

so basically you try to pick a team that you think will produced balanced numbers in those respective categories. lots of different strategies to achieve that (ie. someone will draft jarred boll just to dominate in penalty minutes.. which, in most leagues, count as positive things for some reason) some will pick a guy like Thornton high for Assists, etc.

During the season, you can search the wavier wire of players not on any team, and you can swap them out (1 at a time) for players from your roster.

there are obviously some intricacies, but this is the bare bones. you get the hang of it after a season or two.

I lost my spot on the premier league since I've been nonexistent on here for quite awhile, so I'd like to join this league if you'll have me so I can win my spot back next year.

I have no problem moving to a 3rd league if we have enough, looks like we are getting close.

Yahoo! registration is open. Macster has set up the Premier League and capped it at 14. I will set up League #2 tonight. With Millions and McGinty that puts us at 20. willien has also shown interest so that would make 21 if she joins in. Given the numbers, I think there is enough interest that we can create that third league. Worse comes to worst, I am sure we could fill it out with volunteers that are willing to play in multiple leagues (I, for one, would be more than willing to do so). What I need now is some brave soul to step forward and take charge of it. I can run both if neccesary.

I will set the membership of League #2 tonight at 12 managers. I will set up the league and PM those involved with the info they need. I will choose a draft date but we can change it later if someone cannot make it. I will use the same settings Macster used for the Premier League:

3 Centers
6 Wingers
4 Defense
2 Goalies
2 IR
5 Bench

Stats:

G, A, +/-, PIM, PPP, SHP, GWG, SOG, FW, W, GAA, SV%, SHO

Preference in League #2 will be given to members of League #1 and #2 from last year with any remaining slots filled by people who have told me they want to play on a first come-first served basis. League #3 will become the new entry level League for the board. Same rules apply for advancement/demotion for Leagues #2, and #3 as do with the Premier League and League #2. Top two finishers from League #3 advance to League #2, bottom 2 finishers in League #2 drop down to League #3.

The League is set!

HF CBJ Board Grinder League:

1. Casework
2. CBJFreak
3. Cydawg
4. forktie
5. Iron Balls McGinty
6. jagpanzer
7. kidAcbj
8. KOtollefsen
9. MillionsLivio
10. PCH
11. President Madagascar
12. Samkow
13. The Dancin’ Beaver
14. willien

I had to go with 14 because I had 13 former members of Leagues 1 & 2 and forktie made the cut to round out the field because he was the first to post his interest. I will send everyone the information regarding the league via PM later tonight. I will admit I got a little jealous of the Premier League's name so I chose something that I thought was more appropriate than the generic sounding "League #2". I will be changing the title of this thread as well to reflect our proud new name!

As of now the draft is set for Saturday, Sept. 20 at 10:00 PM. This works well for me and I guessed it would for the largest number of you as well. The draft will take a couple of hours at least so plan on being up past midnight. If anyone has an issue with this time let me know.

For those left off the list, Fear Not! I will start a League #3 thread later tonight titled, "CBJ Fantasy Prospect League Official Thread 2008/09."

Dang, didn't make the 2nd league.

Are these leagues separate from each other or interconnected?

Check out the Prospect League thread for a full explanation of just how they are connected.

Three things.

First, Millions Livio has been promoted to the Premier League due to the fact that they had a withdrawl. He played in League #1 last season and was originally excluded because it was thought that he had left the board. Now we need another manager to make an even number. jacketshockey, you're next on the list so the spot is yours if you want it. I'll send you the league ID and password via PM.

Secondly, there are still six of you that still have not registered your teams. Please do so as soon as you can so that I can make sure we have all of the bodies we need before the draft. Please post your team name here so I can know who is who.

Lastly, I have had two requests to move the draft to sunday night. Before I make this happen, does anyone have a problem with this?

OK folks, 4 days to draft day and there are still two of you that haven't registered. Of those that have registered, I only know who nine of you are so please post here to let me know who is running what team. This is what I know so far, or have been able to guess.


K.O's sex tornados - KOtollefsen
Team Hextall - jacketshockey
2 Finger Cul-de-Sac - ?
The Nashionals - kidAcbj
CBJFreak's Freaks - CBJFreak
Desert Heat - willien
Glove Save A Go-Go - ?
ChimmersBrokenGlass - Cydawg
CCC Blue Blazers - Casework
Humulus Lupulus - jagpanzer
Gahanna Grunts - ?
Battlin' Beavers - The Dancin' Beaver

So that means forktie, PCH, President Madagascar, Samkow, and Iron Balls McGinty either have not registered or have not told me their team name. Let's get on the stick here people so I can get this settled and worry about other things (like preping for the draft ).

Also, I posted before that I had two requests to change the draft to Sunday. Since no one has let me know that that this will be a problem, I will be changing the draft time to Sunday, September 14 at 8:00 PM (EDT). You have 24 hours from this post to let me know if you can not make this time before I make the change official.
