It seems some of the people also agree. Make it like 25-30
After looking at last year, only (2) people had more than (25) moves, we were thinking (20) for this year.

There's also now the option to limit # of moves per week. Anyone prefer that?

starting a league in my office, on Yahoo as well, first time as Commish.. what are the "typical settings", for scoring and Roster Positions, etc.

doing head-to-head, that works the best, right?

what do you guys think?

Live draft, I stuck it out the full 2hours
20 teams, H2H, G,A,Pim,PPP,Blk W,GAA,SV%,SHO
C,C,C,LW,LW,LW,RW,RW,RW,D,D,D,D,BN,BN,BN,G,G

C Patrick Marleau (SJ - C,LW)
C Jordan Staal (Pit - C)
C Brandon Dubinsky (NYR - C)
LW James Neal (Dal - LW)
LW Jussi Jokinen (Car - LW)
LW Matt Moulson (NYI - LW)
RW Steve Downie (TB - RW)
RW Dustin Brown (LA - RW)
RW Ryan Callahan (NYR - RW)
D Shea Weber (Nsh - D)
D John Carlson (Was - D)
D Keith Ballard (Van - D)
D Matt Carle (Phi - D)
G Henrik Lundqvist (NYR - G)
G Cam Ward (Car - G)
BN Dan Girardi (NYR - D)
BN Chris Neil (Ott - RW)
BN Artem Anisimov (NYR - C)

Considering the 20 teams,I think I did pretty good as a mid round drafter, #12/20. I'm hoping the Staal/Malkin experiment works in my favor. Girardi,Weber,Cally will get me blocks. Carle, Downie,Neil for PIM's. Hank/Cam is one of the best goalie combos in the league, my competition is Miller/Vokoun. Dustin Brown & James Neil speak for themselves and I see Brown is on the Kopitar/Smyth line now. And I'm hoping Moulson does good with JT again this year. And I got screwed on MDZ so I took John Carlson instead.

I went ahead and changed the "max moves" based on the discussion HERE, but them I looked at the message boards on the League page and it appears everyone is AGAINST a cap on transactions. Which is it? We have to have a final decision by draft time Wednesday.

I'm fine with having 20 max. I'm fine with any number really.

Most likely very little. Assuming Gilroy makes the team it will most likely be MDZ, Rozsival, and Gilroy.

There's a good chance he gets the job by default, not a bad gamble, he'll play a ton of minutes.

Pre-draft: Study your leagues scoring system. Some players look a lot better depending on scoring. If you are in a points league where blocks/hits are not scored players like Callahan, Backes, etc. are not going to be as valuable. Especially check your goaltender stat values. If stats like saves and games played are scored then goalies like Lundqvist are going to be most valuable due to the amount of net time they see. If values for wins, losses (negative value) and shutouts are much higher than goals/assists then it will be beneficial to make sure you waste an early pick getting at least one good goaltender.

Head2Head and Rotisserie scoring are played fairly differently than points based scoring. You will be aiming to win multiple categories every night and you need players who are jacks of all trades, rather than a guy who can pot 80-100 points, but has a terrible +/-, low faceoff wins, and no hitting. Again it all depends on what stats are scored. Generally you can depend on guys who are hitting 90+ points in a season to be pretty well rounded in most categories, but do some homework.

Biggest mistake: Taking a young/fringe player because they look good in pre-season or are expected to produce. If you want players like Hall/Eberle/Seguin get them in late rounds. Don't fill your roster with them.

Also do not pick players just because they're on your favorite team (assuming NYR) or conversely avoiding players because you dislike them. Some players you may hate are fantasy gods. (Crosby, Broduer)

The most important thing is to follow as many teams/players as you possibly can. Getting a hot player from the FA pool and riding him before someone else does can make a huge difference by the end of the season. Especially in leagues where there are no max moves, and no max games per position. Riding hot hands should be employed without a doubt in those situations.

Lastly, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Don't drop/trade players who has one bad game, or slump for a month, unless they were hot hands you picked up to ride previously. Most leagues won't let you drop certain players, but it's never a good idea to send a guy you wasted a 1st round pick on to waivers. If you are making trades, buy low, sell high, obviously. If someone on a top line gets injured, don't just think about replacing that player, also consider the effect it might have on the rest of the line.

For example last year, after Smyth got injured, Kopitar's production slowed down a bit. So anyone who thought that might happen, and sold Kopitar high probably got a good return on him. Holding on to him was fine as well, don't get me wrong he had a great season, but sometimes thinking ahead can be the difference in good/bad moves.

That's all I have.

Thanks a lot!!!!

So is h2h similar 2 football where it's like a cumulative of the week?

If there's no max move is it a situation where ppl add drop non core guys daily based on schedule?

I have a very hectic schedule & I don't want to have to be adjusting my te every day if possible.

I literally know zippy about fantasy hockey but want 2 try it this year. I'm an avid ffb played & just got back into hockey last year.

Again thanks

Right, generally in Head2Head you will play one "team" all week, competing against them in individual categories. At the end of the week who ever has the most points in each stat/category wins it, the more categories you win, the more overall points you are awarded for that week. You can tie as well. These wins/losses/ties will reflect your record for the season, which determines the standings.

No max moves and no max games per position allows for a constant rotation of players, yes, however it is not beneficial to drop half your roster every night just to make sure you have a full line-up playing. You would be picking your squad through the FA pool, and if you're in any decent size league, it will be slim pickings. So no, people do not rotate a roster so frequently they have a new line-up every night. You will see people rotate out two or three roster spots all season though with players who catch fire, them dump them when the streak ends. Depends on how solid your drafted squad is, and whether or not players slump badly.

You will most likely have to go in and adjust your lines every night to make sure you bench players who are not playing, and moving in those who are. Not many leagues are setup so you have one set of players that are always active, with no bench rotation. However, I've seen people leave their team inactive all season and still beat out people who were constantly updating their roster nightly.
