Commissioner Corner Message Board
I am excited that fantasy hockey is back too....
but why do people insist on drafting this early. thats what the mock drafts are for.
its unfortunate, because the majority of the managers that start leagues now forget about them, and dont sign back in. this ruins leagues and wastes peoples time.
Not only that, its far to early to be drafting teams and then coming on the message boards asking, " rate my team", "help with a trade".
injuries, holdouts, trades and the preseason all make or break a season. These reasons alone are enough to not draft this early.
Nobody knows how well a player is going to do. What if he gets seriously hurt before the season starts? then you are fuct. especially if you lose a top players or goalie.
but if you just cant help yourself, and must draft just for the sake of drafting a team....stay active!
especially the commissioners. it sucks when you set up a team and then bail out.
good luck this year everyone!!
ps....i have leagues open for managers to join, drafts are beginning of october.
I totally agree with this. There are too many times a draft could appear great in the first days of Sept and then be a mess by the first of OCT. I prefer to draft at least in the last half of Sept when many of the cuts have been made and nhl rosters are essentially set. Goobs:)

dont have limits on roster moves. that s a poor excuse anyway.
besides, what GOOD manager starts trading before a season even starts? maybe draft picks of depth players, but as any EXPERIENCED manger knows, 99% of the time....the last picks of your draft get dropped to the FA list.
dont believe me?? go back to your preivious years drafts and then look at the team you finished with. or even look at what your team looked like when you ACTUALLY started the season with. i GUARANTEE its a different team than what you drafted.
2 weeks before the actual regular season is the closest you should be drafting. other than that you are asking for trouble and/or are just a drafting junkie who will probably sit out most of your pools.
