Confirming that I will enter and we should do a snake order throughout, when do we start this?

The only problem I have with prospect draft and voting is that everyone does. It doesn't necessarily make sense if this isn't a "league". I don't know maybe I just like the idea of the prospect draft being the opposite of the order.

Ok, thanks for the input everyone -- we will do a snake order for the entire draft. I am going to do a lottery (names out of a hat) and will post the order.

For the prospect draft, I think we either need to do a snake order and/or a lottery system. I do not want to start the prospect draft until the regular draft is done, because I don't want to dilute the focus for all of us involved by having to worry about both. I want to complete Phase 1 (the NHL draft), then we'll do Phase 2 (prospect draft).

For the prospect draft, I think it is easiest to just say, if people have already played or are currently playing in the NHL, they should be eligable to be selected in the Phase 1 draft. (i.e. Hall, Fowler, Shattenkirk, etc.)

For players that are in the minors and have played in the NHL and could theoretically be called up at any time, they should be eligable to be selected in the Phase 1 draft, but if they are NOT selected in Phase 1, they should also be eligable for the Phase 2 draft. (i.e. Zack Boychuck, Eric Tangradi).

(perhaps we should put a cap on players eligable for Phase 2, i.e. if they have played more than 100 NHL games, etc...)

Any prospects who are playing in Europe/College/Juniors who would not be eligable to play in the NHL right now will only be eligable for the Phase 2 draft.

Please give me your feedback on these issues.

I'm in.

No problem about the mistake.. I honestly thought I was on your ignore list

I'm indifferent as to what type of draft, whatever the majority wants.

Snaaaaaaake draft! Yes, do a snake draft for both. Reverse the order of the snake for the phase 2 draft.

I'll take over a team if someone backs out as well.


In the meantime I'll be co-owning with johnnydollaz89.



I think a Reverse Snake would be better for draft order.

Take Nashville. I'm already in the GM game on these boards and that will take some time away from this. Plus everyone deserves to be in one of these drafts

I think to keep things flowing, we should get a committment that people can log on at least once per day to make their selection and keep things flowing. Obviously, we all have lives and other responsibilities, so let's get at least that level of committment. If there's anyone who is only going to log on every few days, that's not going to work and please let us know.

Thanks!

Confirming Alberta OilFlames
Sorry I was busy all day. And for the phase 2 draft, I was thinking maybe an age period (between september 15th 1989 and september 14th 1993) Players that were born between those dates are to be picked in phase 2.

Since we all presumably live in different time zones and have different schedules can we designate someone else to make our pick for us to get things moving quickly once things start?

Hey Guys,

I have updated the list with the others who have confirmed, so those without the *** are still unconfirmed. I will PM them again, but if they don't reply in the next day or so, I will be happy to put someone else in their place if we get some more volunteers.

So, if anyone else wants to join, please let us know by posting here.

The draft order will be established once we have a full list.

As long as we're going on the pace of about 1 round per day, I will be ok with that. If we can do fast, that's great. But hopefully those participating will appreciate the value of this experiment even if it takes a bit of time

The most important thing is I want all of us to end up with really good, solid & balanced teams to gague what a 26 team league would look like, as well as our own drafting skills/knowledge of players.

To TOOMUCHBREWER's point: if anyone would like to partner up so as to help things go faster, that's fine by me; just give me the authorizating allowing a particular member to pick for you, and they can make the selection on your behalf.

Please let me know if anyone has any other suggestions/questions.
