Hey all, I'm going to be starting a keeper league this season and I'm looking ONLY for managers who are absolutely DEDICATED to maintaining their rosters and remaining competitive.
To apply send me a link to your fantasy profile as credentials are necessary for admission. Top place finishes aren't required but if I see you're all bottom of the pack finishes, you won't be approved. I'll need your email address as well to confirm your acceptance. Only those accepted will be contacted.
I am looking for managers are who are competent, reasonable -or in other words not a whiny little b*tch who is going to complain about any trade made or offered that doesn't improve their own team - that LIVE hockey as I do and have a vast knowledge of the game. If this sounds like you than please send the info and we can get started!
My formats as of right now - though I am very open to suggestions for improvement or otherwise - is a 16 team keeper, with 23 man rosters - a la the nhl standard - consisting of (3) players at each forward position, (5) defenseman, (1) util, (2) goalies and (6) bench spots.
There will be (2) IR spots as well as a mini farm system of (5) prospects. The farm system will essentially be an "honor system" function where in by at the conclusion of the standard draft you may select any 5 players who have less than 100 games of NHL experience (72 games for goaltenders) and were not selected in the standard draft to reserve them on your farm system until you deem they are fit to be promoted to your 23 man roster, at which point they cannot be returned to your system. Additionally, if said prospect reaches the 100 (72) games of NHL experience plateau without being added to your roster he becomes subject to waivers and may be claimed by any manager, with current reverse standings being the marker for first dibs - same as NHL waiver rules -
The scoring system will be H2H. I am very open to suggestions for which specific statistics should be used but the baseline essentials are:
offensive stats of G, A, PPP, +/-, SHT, P
goalie stats of W, GAA, SV%, SO, SV
That's all I can think of at the moment in terms of what you need to know. If you're interested in what you see then you know what to do. I should also mention that if I suspect any sort of collusion all mangers involved will be removed, I mention this to dissuade groups of friends from becoming involved to screw everyone around. So if that's your idea, than don't bother. I am very committed to being a good commissioner and providing a pleasant fantasy hockey experience so I'm not just talking out my a$$, I really want to see this work. Thanks everyone!
Dude im your man,
I just started last year on Yahoo but i've been pooling for years hockey is my life even got a habs tattoo, had 4 yahoo pools last year and i won 2 and kicked ass in the other 2!!!
Hey again everyone, probably the final update for me here. There are officially only 2 open slots left, however of course if I get an applicant who exceeds a current one, they will be awarded the position so keep sending those emails so we can get started with the more in depth details and work out of the fine print! Remember guys I will only be replying to those who send emails, I don't have time to read all the posts here and reply to each person. Thanks
Just an update, I've received more than enough replies to fill the league however, the more the merrier, so keep them coming if you're interested! Also I should mention that as a result of receiving so many responses already I will likely not reply to the people who post on the boards only, send me an email to your fantasy profile page guys, I just don't have the time to browse the posts and reply to you as well as read all the emails I'm getting. Thanks.
