My huge, deep 3-line, 20-team league—drafts Wed morning… I'm looking for some rabid fans to join. If you're serious about hockey, and you are willing to make the commitment to sub in and out players throughout the season and replace injured players, this is the league for you.
There will be 20 teams, with only 4 of them making the championship playoffs. Teams that finish 5-8 will play a consolation playoff tournament.
There will be a live draft: The exact date and time of the draft is Wednesday morning, October 6 at 7:00am PDT. (That's Los Angeles/West Coast time. If you live on the East Coast, it would be 10 AM.)
Each team will have three centers, three right wings, three left wings, six defensemen, two goalies and five bench players.
You will be able to add and drop players as much as you want -- a maximum of four per week -- and you can instantly add players for today's game.
It's a weekly head-to-head matchup league where you compete in 16 or so categories with one other team, and you play each other team at least one time throughout the season.
Here’s the passwords, etc:
