HF ESPN Fantasy Hockey: Teams drafted, insanity ensues.

I just created a fantasy hockey league on ESPN and thought I would open it up to anyone on here who wanted to play. I've never been a commish before, but I wanted to have a team so I figured I'd start my own league. It's a 20 team league, and rosters should be pretty deep. If you sign up and see anything that should be adjusted, please just let me know in this thread. I have a few old hockey friends who'll probably sign up but don't really follow anyone but the Avs, so you'll probably want to take advantage of them once it gets going.

Right now, the draft is set for next tuesday (not wednesday) at 8:30 pm mtn or something like that. This can be changed based on how quickly the league fills up and folks' schedules, etc.



League is now full!

Here's a link to the "Don't Toews Me Bro!!!" homepage

I'm tempted to join such a big league, but I'm already in two other leagues, along with fantasy football.

Screw it, I'm joining.

I'm the Pucksters.

One scoring question, how do Goals Against count as negative one? How does that work? If you lead in GAA you lose a point?

Goals against, not goals against average. The league tally's up points at the end of the night. So basically, if Anderson...

Wins = 2 pts
30 saves = 30 x 0.2 = 6 pts
2 goals against = - 2

So he's worth 6 points that night.

Ah, thank you. That makes sense. I've done a different kind of scoring in the past.

Normally I've done leagues where you try to win categories, such as scoring more goals, assists, etc. than the opponent on any given week. But I understand this leagues scoring system from using a similar one in fantasy football.

Madman, I was wondering if there's a GM setting that will allow teams to add a custom image. I'm in another ESPN league that allows us to add one. Not a big deal though.

There should be. Click on "My Team". Once this tab opens to your team page, look under the tab and click on the "Team Settings" button. There you can edit your team name, email preferences, and team logo (incl. their lame Logo Builder tool).
