  1. I'm not the most active poster around here but thought I'd chime in a bit. Yes, as @canucklax mentioned, it's a pretty quick process to check who is available. But given how the draft has been somewhat unpredictable with so many prospects going over active roster players, we've been left caught off guard at times. Our spreadsheets are all over the place now. I've been travelling for the last two months (driving across North America in June and going around Europe in July) and I'm not gonna lie, fantasy hockey is not my #1 priority at this moment. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy fantasy leagues as much as anyone else but I'm not exactly sitting around on my phone/laptop all day waiting for it to be our pick. There's a beautiful world out there to be explored! Time zones weren't too big of an issue when I was still in NA but now I'm half a day ahead of @maroe, who works during the day, so it's not always that we can confirm our pick within minutes of it being our turn. The time limits are there for the GM to use for their picks so I don't see the big deal here. As far as I know, real GMs have time limits to make their draft picks and they have the right to use every second of it. Sure, it's much shorter than the time limits in this draft, but the idea of being able to do what you want within the rules is the same. Why create flexible time limits if GMs aren't expected to use them? We're cool with picking a date where everyone gets online to finish the draft immediately, if there's that big of a rush to get things done with. Perhaps I'm taking a friendly jab a bit too seriously now... We generally have a shortlist of guys we want each round but things don't always play out as expected so for some rounds we've been changing up our plans. Unfortunately that takes time and means we have to do some additional homework on guys we didn't think we'd be able to get and calculate the risk of leaving other guys on the table for next round. We do our best to keep the draft moving by picking as soon as we can. Awkward internet connectivity on my end and random work-related meetings for @maroeslow things down. Though I take probably 90% of the blame for the slow picks as maroe is usually on the ball when it's our turn. Paint me as the villain all you want haha but maroe is a nice guy and sends me a ton of spam to get my butt online. I've tried to convince him to make picks without waiting but he insists that this is a team effort. Still trying to find a balance with working together. Kudos to those of you that have a huge, detailed list prepared for every round and only need seconds to make your pick. I respect your dedication to the game and hope you're all able to build awesome teams. Neither of us have a strong opinion about the time limit changing. It's July and there's still plenty of time before the Sept 15 deadline that's posted on the first page.. That said, I get that people are excited to make their picks so if the time limits get reduced that's understandable. I'd be happy with getting the draft done with asap too. We're indifferent and don't have any real power to influence the rules anyway. It's a non-issue for us. We'll make our pick within our time limit as we've done so far and in the case where we miss one, it's not the end of the world either. Cheers!
  2. Maybe reaching a bit here but @maroe likes this guy and the Jets. Nashville selects from the Winnipeg Jets, Andrew Copp. @Drouin

    So you're telling me that I can trade you a 5th round pick for @Sygvard's GM services?
  4. Nashville selects Jared Spurgeon from the real life Minnesota Wild. @Drouin
  5. My co-GM @maroe and the entire Nashville Predators organization is proud to select Ryan O'Reilly from the real life St. Louis Blues. @Nail
  6. 2018 CDC Puck Draft

    Pittsburgh selects Gabriel Fortier from the Baie-Comeau Drakkar of the QMJHL. Got a couple last minute inquiries that I didn't see until ten minutes before my pick was up. Apologies to everyone who msged me but there likely wasn't enough time to get something done. I wasn't expecting things to go so fast today. @Brocks Flow

    Pittsburgh is proud to select Jacob Bernard-Docker from the Okotoks Oilers of the AJHL. @Tigs

    I remember having a good chuckle at that trade when it went through. It got funnier when Nesterov signed in the KHL a couple days after the trade was made

    The Pittsburgh Penguins are delighted to select Joseph Veleno with the 15th overall pick. @Art Vandelay
  12. CDC Puck 2017/18

    Pittsburgh remains interested in moving up into the top 15, depending on how the next few picks pan out. Send myself and @Isaiah a message if you're interested in moving down to 19th!
  13. CDC Puck 2017/18

    Pittsburgh is interested in exploring options to move up or down in the draft. Wouldn't be willing to move any lower than pick #40 or so but willing to move up to anywhere if the price is right. Cant guarantee a fast reply because CDC won't let me reply on my computer so I'd have to reply through my phone. For some odd reason I've only been able to read messages from both my desktop/laptop since January of this year. Luckily my phone has allowed me reply to messages/make and like posts most of the time. It stopped working for a couple weeks in May so I apologize to those that I've replied super slow to. Didn't mean to ignore anyone!
