Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I know we're all thinking Baseball here but since i just had a owner bail on me i need to see if one Fantasy player out there might be interested in joining an amazing new type of fantasy hockey league starting NEXT WEEK? The game will be played on Yahoo but most of the free fun will happen on a site called Pro Boards, each owner is responsible for their own teams roster page, which will have their players, minor teams, prospects, cap space, IR, futures and other great league related info.
This new type of league is very life-like, its going to be awesome! Its called a keeper/bidding league. Each team has a cap of 100$. Owners will create their teams by bidding on players via free agency through a 24hr biding process on the Pro Boards free web site, there will be a max each team is allowed to bids per 24 hrs, just to prevent a team from going mad with 16 bids and capping themselves too early.
We have set the roster size of 25 big club positions and having 10 players down in the minors which teams can call-up or send down on a league waiver system consisting of games played by the real NHL player. The minor system lets teams stash players but must pass through waivers when being sent down at which point any team may put a 24hr claim for that players and will pay that players entire cap value like in the real NHL. Players with less then 100 games experience can be shipped back and fourth without worry of being claimed.
There's also if player goes through ordered waivers unclaimed then the team has the option to "buy out" said player for HALF of the players contract value. Before each off-season may begin, the league will conduct its own entry draft using players from the same group of rookies the actual NHL is drafting from that same season. Finally another gem is all trades will not be reviewed by the League or its Commissioner.Transaction responsibility falls on that of the trading parties unless collusion is evident.
Those are just some of the rules in the league and by using the Pro Boards site, makes it really easy and fun as the site has "Threads" sp posting or replying to a thread is easy and the site has its own "personal messaging" feature which makes it really easy to get a hold of another owner and start talking trades. As of right now we have 13 players and just need one more to get the league started, please email me if your interested and serious, meaning you can devote about 30mins a day or 2hrs every other day to the league.
