Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
1. GWG- A total crapshoot every year, you can't draft for this. Get rid of it. Pure luck.
2.PIM- Rewarding your team for the time a player spends NOT on the ice? Get rid of PIM and put HITS in it's place. It takes far more skill to hit people consistently and not take penalties.
3. Shooting %- Flat out stupid, means nothing.
4. Shots against- Why penalize your goalie for bad defense in front of him? It's not his fault how many shots he faces. That's why we have GAA and Save %. Remove shots against.
5. ADD BLOCKS- Give some added value for DEFENSIVE defensemen in fantasy. We always follow the SOG and PPP for d-men, how bout some fantasy value for the d-men who actually play defense?
I am all for PIMS, it rewards players that sometimes wouldn't be rewarded and adds to guys who do a bit of dirty work and show up on the score sheet ( ie.Backes,Lucic,Downie etc)
Shooting % really does frustrate me though, it kills offensive defencemen and really doesn't reward anybody...
I am in a big $$$ which has sh% and I really dislike it..I would much prefer PPP
create your own league ... then u can have whatever stats your heart desires.....
I like hits and blocks and hate pims myself..also hate faceoffs won...but thats cause I always seem to do bad in them...
nothing wrong with PIMs as a cat. rewards guys who fight. hits is fine, but not a straight substitute. if you don't like PIMs, just find a league that doesn't use them.
SHG is a pretty useless stat, unless you like random.
adding blocks, I can go for that.
