  • 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.

    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?
