    You should try to join us in the rest of the forum sometime too. That is, if you can pull yourself away from the Fantasy threads...

    Oh noooooooooooo...I have to play Bezeach this week.
    Plus I'm outnumbered for at least the early part of the week. This could be ugly.:nailbiting:

    We need to liven this league up. It's been about 3 weeks since the last post.

    Bezeach is leading the pack and making some moves to keep his team strong.

    Mikhail was making about 20 moves per week...until he accidentally dropped a great player in his haste. Now...nothing. Both he and Laimbeer aren't playing like rookies.

    You've got your top 5 teams and bottom 5, but any from the bottom could easily make their way to the top with a good week, and vice versa.

    My team is really struggling and I can't figure out why. I have basically the same team I won the ship with last year. I've been running into some hot goalies so even when I play well I lose those cats (I think Nabby had 2 shutouts last week and two from Luongo this week). OUCH!

    We need more smack talk. Come on Woody...Jammer...where are you? I'm kind of reluctant to talk as much smack since I'm commissioner. Maybe that's silly.

    Oh...for next year I have some ideas...

    Using GWG (Game winning goals) again as a stat...even though it's usually just luck (It's not always the last goal that is the game winner).

    Also using Shots on goal (a new default cat in Yahoo that replaced GWG this year.

    Also I might use penalty minutes. It's dumb...but I think more cats liven the leagues.

    Also, in baseball we used weekly lineups. I thought it was pretty neat. If I add a couple of roster slots (which I can given all the surplus talent in the small league) then we can still have lots of guys playing that week even though guys don't play every day like in baseball.

    If it stays daily, I'll put a reasonable cap on how many moves we can make during the year...maybe 75.

    Any feedback?

    I'd talk more smack if my team wasn't so lousy. My two top wingers (Semin and Cheechoo) have done absolutely nothing so far. I keep holding on to them hoping they'll get going, but so far, nothing!

    Broduer had a bad month, and Hasek is not doing well either. NO goalies, NO wingers, NO win!!

    I'm starting to swap out players now. I check the league page to see who you and Bezeach have dropped and then I pick them up. Your trash is my treasure!!

    I actually nosed you out last week thanks to a Brodeur shutout, but I didn't feel like crowing over it.

    So far, Parise had been my best pickup. and Arnott is good too. And I hope Vanek gets going soon also. I've got way too many guys dragging anchor.

    I don't care for most of the suggestions for next year. Most of those stats are pure luck and not very meaningful. I liked the faceoff stat last year when I had Brind'Amour, but not this year after Laimbeer stole him from me during the draft.

    You're doing just a GREAT job as commissioner. Particularly since it has been limiting your smack talking! :)

    Yea, my draft strategy was to pick Brind'Amour and Sundin in order to have a lock in one category (faceoff wins) each week.

    It appears the league is now in the bag for me. You guys are playing for second.

    Shhhhhhhhhhh:sssh:.
    As commissioner, I feel it is only right to make the rest of the league feel like they actually have a chance to win the championship.

    That was my strategy as well going into the draft. It looks like I executed my plan better than you did since I have a commanding lead in the faceoff category with 942 wins to your laughable 787 wins in 2nd place. I'm 8-0 in weekly faceoff wins, while you're 7-1 (guess who you lost to in week 4) :sssh:.

    I don't have a problem with adding GWG and/or Shots next year, but you're right about penalty minutes, it's a dumb idea. :pound:

    I really liked the weekly lineups in baseball this year. It made it MUCH easier to manage my team.

    HECK TO THE YES!!!! I'd put it even lower, at say 50 for the season. That is my BIGGEST turn off in fantasy sports, especially in this league.

    Not so much about people picking up extra guys to get a numerical advantage (although that sucks as well), but because on the rare occasion that I do want to pick someone up due to injury or under performance, EVERYONE IS ON FREAKING WAIVERS. So you can't get anyone of value for the next day because you have to wait for them to clear waivers. It is VERY annoying.

    I was going to say something about this a few weeks ago, but the transactions really started to slow down. Fifty moves should be plenty for an entire season, IMO. I think the most I've ever made in any league in any sport is around 25-30 or so. It just takes the fun out of the league for me.


    Edit: I checked just for fun and the most moves I've made was in last year's PF.com hockey league, when I made 37 moves in 23 weeks, most of those coming in the playoff rounds when I had no other choice because my opponent was Tatering me. :MusicBigGrin:

    My team is getting healthy again. I'm gambling on a couple upcoming moves to put me in solid position to do well in the playoffs. Right now, it's all about staying top tier, and then getting the lineup I need to compete in the brackets.
