    I think I just figured out that this first week actually lasts 2 weeks. Until the 13th. Why?
    I was getting all geared up for Junior's Sharks. Oh well, I'm looking forward to some shark meat.
    Have never had any before.

    DROP THE PUCK!!!

    Because most NHL teams didn't start until Wednesday or Thursday last week.

    I wondered if that wasn't the case.

    Looks like your and Rax's teams haven't even started, yet. :cheeky-smiley-012:

    I don't see anything wrong with 2 weeks of beating Laimbeer and Wings :noidea:

    Be careful. You don't want to wake my team up.

    there are seven categories for goalises, 8 for the rest of the team. Practically all you need - 2 hot goalies and what the rest of the team does - is not so important. I'd say - unbalanced. I'd replace GA and SV with hits and blocks ( or PIM - less is better)

    Once the season starts, the stat categories are locked for the season. If you have ideas about which categories you would like to see included, provide that input in the Fantasy Hockey 2014-15 thread.

    I like it the way it is! That's why I always try to get two very good goalies. Defense is half of the game!
    Plus, some of those offensive categories (like SHG and SHA) are real crap shoots and require no
    intelligence, just pure luck. Not sure I like hits, but maybe PIM. Play clean, no goons.
    If you happen to get the few hot goal scorers (Crosby, Ovechkin, etc.) you are at a big advantage: G,A,PPG,PPA,SHG,SHA.

    The dumbest category that we have is SAVES. This really has no reflection on how good your goalie is. You get rewarded in this category if your goalie plays on a poor defensive team which results in the goalie getting shelled.

    Yeah, Bill, but if your goalie is getting shelled and makes a lot of saves, he's probably giving up a bushel
    of goals at the same time. How about the team which plays crappy defense so is always playing shorthanded?
    Lots of chances for a SHG. Lousy defense also means low +/-.
    A top defense gives up fewer saves, and fewer goals. Most of the stats balance out - except for goals - they are always good!

    Goals are gold! They're often worth more than one point! Goal+PPG+SHG, + several +/-. One goal
    can be worth 7 sub-points. Not bad!

    Don't follow hockey outside of the Wings. Don't know most of the players. Know nothing about fantasy hockey.

    Made my 1st transaction. Dropped Mike Richards, picked up Valterri Filppula. What are your opinions?

    That's a good move. I ALMOST picked him up the other day, but I only have one move left for the week and I decided to save it.

    But you can still talk smack and complain about stuff. (mostly all the managers. :-)

    If you don't know who Lubomir is, then you need to hang up your skates.

    Hey Darth,

    Just thought you'd like to see a video of one of my players scoring a short handed goal while he was on the BENCH tonight. I won't even complain about the fact that I was robbed of a +1 on the play because he wasn't on the ice. :ner-ner:

    Enjoy:
