Scoring System:

  • Goal & Shootout Winning Goal - 1 point
  • Assist - 1 point
  • Win - 1 points
  • Shutout - 1 point



Time Line:


Draft Start - The draft will start on Friday December 7th at 8 AM PST, run by @Tigs and IYou will be allowed to make selections prior to the 7th, but there will be absolutely no pressure on other GMs if they wish to wait until Friday December 7th.


Draft Limits/Key Dates - The Draft will run with 4 hour time limits from 8 AM PST - 12 AM PST every day from Friday December 7th until Saturday December 22nd at 12:00 AM PST. From Saturday December 22nd to Sunday December 23rd, the draft will have a 1 hour time limit from 8 AM PST until 12 AM PST to complete the draft.


Player Swaps - If you choose a player and they are cut from the team or injured prior to December 23rd we will compile a list of these players and let the GM's re-select players based on the draft position of the player they lost. This is not a first come first serve re-draft, so don't post that your player is injured and you want to re-select somebody else prior to Dec 23th.


Fringe Players - If you select a player like Rasmus Dahlin with the hopes he will be released to play in the WJC Tournament, you are welcome to do so. Should he not be released from his NHL roster, you will just re-pick that position on December 23rd during the re-draft.

I see we have six GM's now, i guess we are aiming for ten? As this is group B I wonder if most years it has less than ten? Odds go up on winning the group with fewer GM's so I am not concerned but curious. If its usually ten then I expect it will fill up fast this week with just four spots remaining

Up to Tigs if we don't fill up haha
