Is there any way to see how your team compares to other top teams in yahoo hockey leagues?
Now when I say top, I don't mean the people who made 900 player moves and have people in there line up that no one has ever heard of. I also don't mean the people who are in 6 person leagues. I also don't mean the people who had there friends trade them every all star in the league.
I am in a 10 person league, I had a mediocre draft but have made sick trades and pick ups and wondered how my team compares to some of the others out there because I think I can compete with the best at this point. In a 12 category head to head league I just beat the second place person 9-1 and he has crosby, elias, datsyuk, kovalev, lundqvist, etc.
My team is:
m. Green (rediculous)
bench:boyes, shanny, and briere on IR.
Goalies are Backstrom, Thomas and Fernandez, Luongo, and roloson.
Maybe its not the best team in yahoo, but as far as def and goalies go, I am confident I can beat anyone.
I would love to compete against other great managers that fit the above criteria. I would like to see what kind of responses this gets. Next hockey season it would be cool to challenge some people who seem similar. Any interest? I would set a limit on player moves just so people don't get cute aka are dumb. Hell, I would do baseball as well but honestly I'm not as good. I always seem to find people that hit 15 less hr then the year before. haha.
This is my team in a 13 person league:
Marc Andre Bergeron
Here is my 12 team h2h first place team, not because I think it is one of the best teams out there, but because I think it may be one of the best teams out there among people playing their first year of fantasy hockey.

Not bad but this is my H2H team. I've only made 1 trade (Vinny, Kubina for Seto, Weber)and 16 moves but most of them have been for D because that is my weakest area. Also it is a 12 team league so don't jump on me about that but unfortunately only about 7 other managers are active so that limits the trades available.
