    • Blades of Glory (League ID 11488) is in its 2nd year of existence. We have 11 awesome active General Managers, but 1 GM we just voted to remove because he has been inactive for 2 months.

      Your requirements:
      Hockey fan with enough time to update your roster at least 4 times a week. Comment and provide input on league decisions and votes and throw around some smack talk here and there. Try to build a dynasty that wins the league year in year out.
      In order to gauge your Y! activity, we are looking for a GM who has at least 25 Y! Fantasy trophy and medals combined.

      Our league:
      We are a 12 team, 4 division league, with 6 playoff spots. Divisions have 3 Canadian GMs, 3 GMs from northern USA, 3 GMs from southern USA, and a division of 3 GMs who joined this season. You will be replacing one of the new GMs in the 4th division.
      Our league is a head-to-head points based league with a $150 salary cap and 6 keeper players. You can keep any 6 players on your roster for the same price at which they were drafted the previous season. However, there is an alumni salary bonus which increases keeper players salaries if you assign them keepers multiple seasons. Waivers have $100 free agent acquisition budget. In addition to trading players, you can trade salaries as well, and alter your salary cap. Basically this league is as close to being a real GM as possible.

      My promise:
      As commish of the league, I value every GMs opinion and do not change league settings without a league vote. I do not change settings after a draft and only implement changes in the offseason. Just last month, we had a vote go 7-3-1 in favour of increasing IR spots from 2 to 4. This will be implemented next off season.

      The scoring and settings of the league are as follows:
      Max Acquisitions per Week = 3
      Trade End Date = March 22, 2012
      Playoffs = Week 23, 24 and 25 (6 teams)
      Playoff Seeding Options = Division winners advance but seeded by overall standings
      Roster Positions = C, C, C, C, LW, LW, LW, LW, RW, RW, RW, RW, D, D, D, D, D, D, D, Util, Util, G, G, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, IR, IR

      Stats:
      Goals (G) 20
      Assists (A) 15
      Plus/Minus (+/-) 3
      Penalty Minutes (PIM) -1
      Powerplay Points (PPP) 4
      Shorthanded Points (SHP) 8
      Shots on Goal (SOG) 1
      Faceoffs Won (FW) 1
      Faceoffs Lost (FL) -1
      Hits (HIT) 1
      Blocks (BLK) 3
      Wins (W) 30
      Losses (L) -15
      Goals Against (GA) -5
      Saves (SV) 1
      Shutouts (SHO) 15

      Your team:
      You will be taking over a last place team with a 4-12 record that has Luongo, Kessel, Ovechkin, Zetterberg amongst others. The two other teams in your division are 1st 11-5 and 5th 9-7. It is highly unlikely, though not impossible, that you will make the playoffs this season. However, with a trade deadline on March 22nd, you have plenty of opportunity to trade away star players in return for salary and cheaper keeper players. You have a good team, but your roster hasn't been changed since Christmas and star players like Hedjuk and Luongo are riding your bench.

      Your roster:
      (Six Keepers)
      Grabovski (Tor - C) $1
      Clowe (SJ - LW,RW) $1
      Backes (StL - C,RW) $2
      Hartnell (Phi - LW) $3
      Vokoun (Was - G) $9
      Zetterberg (Det - C,LW) $16
      (Non-Keepers)
      Ovechkin(Was - LW) $36
      Luongo(Van - G) $35
      Kessel(Tor - RW) $14
      Keith(Chi - D) $9
      Pronger(Phi - D) $4
      Hejduk(Col - RW) $4
      Stepan(NYR - C) $1
      Harrison(Car - D) $1
      Ference(Bos - D) $1
      Clitsome(Cls - D) $1
      Daley(Dal - D) $1
      Greening(Ott - C,LW) $1
      Gorges(Mon - D) $1
      Chimera(Was - LW) $1
      Antropov(Wpg - C) $1
      Murray(SJ - D) $1
      Enroth(Buf - G) $1
      Boychuk(Bos - D) $1
      Stuart(Wpg - D) $1
      Hanzal(Pho - C) $1
      Zubrus(NJ - C,RW) $1
      Ward(Was - RW) $1
