The People's Auction League

I was curious about how much interest there would be in an auction style fantasy draft, as well as help in shaping my ideas for what the league would be.

My preliminary idea of what the league should be:

A 30 team league with a salary cap of 59.6M. The league would not be a keeper league and as such would not have an entry/prospect draft. These players will not be included in the auctions unless someone brings their name up via PM as desired auction.

The dispersal draft would consist of 20 players (chosen at random from NHL team's current rosters) every 3 days being put up for auction. Each GM of the league would then be free to make an offer to any of the players up for auction, but each GM will only be allowed to bid for 5 of those 20 players every 3 days.

At the end of the 3 day bidding period (midnight of the last day of the period) the highest bidder for each player will receive tentative rights to that player; however, on the 4th day any team that truly desires one of the players can claim their tentative rights by bidding 1.5x the previous highest bidder's claim, the previous team can then choose to either match that amount or let the player walk, at midnight of the 4th day this period will end and every player currently on a team will be owned by that team.

If a player does not receive bids during a given 3 day bidding period then they will be deemed a FA and will not be opened for bidding at a later time, these players will make up the waiver wire pool for the opening week of the season.

During the season if a team desires to claim a FA from waivers then they must offer an initial bid, which will open up a 3 day bidding period for said player akin to how the original dispersal auction occurred.

Thoughts? Interested? Post here.

I think it would be a ton of fun, definitely an interesting change up from normal draft formats. Do either of you have any ideas for improvement on the original format?

you should not reset the amount of money people are able to bid every 3 days and keep a fixed total throughout the draft

That is the way I intended, the 5/20 is how many of the 20 players you can make a bid for, but there is a total salary cap you cannot exceed for your team.
