Serious, keener fantasy hockey owners sought who want to have fun being involved
in a very interactive new fantasy hockey "keeper" league.
I've run leagues similar to this online, with owners across North America. Before the
internet took over, I ran leagues where owners got together in person,
drafting in the same room, using pen and paper.
This won't be like most leagues where you draft once and forget about it. With this league
you will draft in September, plan ahead for waiver drafts in each of the following months,
till February (where you drop your deadbeats and add new players). Just before the main
draft there will be a rookie draft where all drafted NHL rookies are eligible to be selected.
This league will feature trading of picks, players, rookies and future waiver picks. So if
you are "out of it" in December, you can build your team for next year.
The idea is to invite owners who live and/or work in the Metro Vancouver
area. Live in person drafting would still have owners using their laptops to draft
via the Yahoo Hockey framework while getting together in one room.
Rookie drafts and waiver drafts would take place using MSN Messenger or Google Chat
but would also be possible to draft in the same room.
This league will have it's own dedicated Google Sheet that tracks draft picks, rookie
26 players: 4 x C, 4 x LW, 4 x RW, 6 D, 2GT and 6 bench spots with 1 DL.
Rookie roster of up to 12 during the season.
8 keeper rookies and 8 keeper regular players from year to year.
If you fall out of contention trade for picks, waiver picks and rookies for next season.
This is a Fee based league (entry fee will be $50 to $100 depending on what the majority decides)
with all fees going back to top 3 winners (50%, 30%, 20%) and an amount for best second half.
Reply with a bit of a bio about you and why you should be considered for the league.
League details will be coming out soon but rest assured it is like nothing anyone
has ever seen. It's pretty close to the real thing, in the sense that you are always
building your team, whether for this year, or future years. Unlike regular drafts that
end right after the initial draft, planning for the next waiver, player bid, trade,
rookies etc. is always "on".
