  • I currently have three managers who have not yet renewed their teams, so time for someone to take the reins. Pick one goalie, and 5-6 skaters to keep for this season. this is an H2H league, counting pretty much all stats, has two divisions. First email gets 'em!

    league runs weekly h2h, and could likely be adding a roster spot or two. most categories counted: faceoff wins, blocked shots, PIM, SOG, hits, goals, assists, PPP, and goalie stats as well.

    first email from manager willing to take keepers from roster and rebuild via draft, have an awesome season, gets the team!

  • I was just feeling the league, and offered Backstrom (WAS) for Datsyuk; it's now pending ruling from the Commish for effect.
    G, A, P/M, PPP, SHP, SOG, PIM, FW..
    Backstrom was the clear winner last year, but Dats was also hurt. I needed a bit more flexibility with an LW spot (too many straight C's,) and when Dats is healthy, he's a magician. Is this kind of an even trade?

    Tavares for Zetterberg and Hornqvist?

    Are you giving or receiving Tavares?

    If giving, remember- you need to drop someone in which Hornqvist is worthy of their spot. Otherwise, I wouldn't do it.

    Kuemper or Harding when the latter is back.

    Harding is unpredictable with health conditions, and Kuemper is still amateur when it comes to a starter's quota of games played. I'd stay away from either until there's a clear consensus of who's better.. unless you need an immediate backup. Then I'd say Kuemper.

    Hall came back who to drop?

    Which Foligno? Likely, that one.

  • Doesn't need to be way too deep, delving the depths of an FA pool for a 3-5 minute player, but a rather active league, preferably into keepers, either new or established.

    Need someone to fill? I'm all in. shoot me details!!

  • Need a few, maybe 1-3, managers willing to be active. Doesn't have to be your only team, most have five or six simultaneous leagues going on anyways, haha.

    We're choosing a forward, defenceman, and goalie to retain from last season, and then redrafting the rest, so there really are no "bad" teams to choose from- just message or email me for more info here. I've three available teams to those remotely interested.

    it's a custom H2H- League of Extraordinary PIM. Hope to see you soon:)

  • Hey fellow commishes!

    This is the second year in which I am attempting to establish a keeper league.
    The previous season was a daily points league, but in all fairness, we're switching to the normal, weekly H2H format for better competition. There were many inactive managers towards the end of last season, and some who had thrown in the towel way to early. The result- some who say a complete redraft is in order, many who say keepers OR redraft is okay by them, and some who state they will relinquish their position if we must redraft again.

    How to appease everyone? I know it's not easy. There are still 3-4 teams who haven't (and i don't think will) renew, so it's either finding managers willing to take reigns on a previous team, have a new team draft (getting first picks at the leftover players,) or moving forward with less teams within the league.

    The goal would have been to keep 5-6 players from last year, and then redraft the rest. Would a good compromise be to keep perhaps only their 2-3 best, and move forward?

    What would you do?

    Thanks!!

    menh.. anyone please?

  • So for next year, each manager is allowed to keep one player in each specified position, and one extra utility of their liking. I have a few to choose, and while some are obvious, others could be tricky. Just about all stats are counted in this weekly, deep H2H setting, including hits, blocks, faceoff wins, game winning goals, all the others...

    Toews, Giroux, Landeskog, Skinner, Gagner, Cammalleri Karlsson, Kronwall, Goligoski, Muzzin, Spurgeon, O'Reilly, Richards, Kesler, Zibanejad, Luongo, Reimer

    Obviously, Toews and Grioux should be there without saying, taking a Centre (and possibly a 2nd, or RW.) For Left Wingers, Landeskog is the only true, growing keeper option. Richards or Cammy could provide a more aggressive presence, though. For Defenceman, Karlsson is a lock, but this is where I thought of using the utility option on Kronwall or Muzzin. Always good having solid D-men stashed for the following season. For goalies, it's tough- Bobby Lu will most likely see another team, while Reimer has just as much potential to be a solidified number one.

    I don't quite see Skinner as a true keeper yet, but I also typed Kesler, O' Reilly, and Zibanejad here, because they all have potential for all categories, or already do, such as Kesler's abilities.

    Any thoughts?

  • I'm in a consolation round, so no big deal, but- I'm already rolling with Hodgson, and Ott has been great these past two weeks. Elias has one assist in the last fourteen days. The only thing I'm losing is his SOG, like double of Ott's output...

    Ott, Brouwer, Hartnell are all on Waivers until the 26th, then if chosen, available to play on the 27th. Are Ryan N-H, Terasenko, Tanguay, Stalberg, Little, Green, or Callahan good picks to play tomorrow? I can obviously pick one up to play tomorrow night, and have them on standby to drop if a waiver claim is successful
