Commissioner Corner Message Board
We have a GM opening we need to fill asap (we have a mini-draft and offersheets in July). 16 Team Dynasty Rotisserie held at Fantrax. The Grail is designed to promote a lot of trading. It also creates its own marketplace and salaries, which is very unique in fantasy. The Grail utilizes almost every stat you can think of in one form or another; the categories are unique compared to any other league. Check out the Grail website at IcyGrail.com which have our rules posted. If you are interested, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Requirements for a GM position:
The #1 requirement is communication. A GM must be proactive in improving his team and being a part of the Grail community. I realize most FHLers have many leagues they are a part of, however, the Grail MUST BE a PRIMARY league. The Grail requires its GM’s to be very accessible via email.
Below are some of the posts I've come across on other websites/posts by fellow Grail members. They are honest testimonials to the Grail...
"...it's the creme de la creme..."
"...too much to go into but its one of the best if not the best fantasy hockey league you will ever be in.”
"...the league blows away anything Yahoo can do. I was reserved about the entrance fee myself, but if you check it out the fee does not even cover the cost of the yearly league and the website. Joe is not making anything off this league and is actually losing some money. There are so many more statistical categories and even more strategies to think about. You got a salary cap and a spending budget for free agents. You can trade draft picks, money or even your place on the waiver ladder for players. I can go on and on. Joe listens to everyone’s suggestions to help make the league a place to stay. He wants a community of hockey fanatics. I suggest you really think about trying it. I have been doing fantasy sports since 1983 and I probably will never join another Yahoo league unless its with some friends

They do, these are classified as NA positions. Each team is allowed up to 5. NA stands for not active, and mostly used for prospects in the minors who may or may not be called up. The problem is, only players with a signed NHL contract can be on the list PRIOR to making their debut. Otherwise , players are added as they play in the majors.
Our dynasty hockey pool has enjoyed using your site for 12 years. One feature that would be significant is to add roster spots designated as "FARM TEAM" players. Farm Team players do not collect stats unless they're called up to the Active Roster; for a GM to use a Farm Team player they would be free to call them up anytime, but that player would need to clear waivers to be re-assigned to the Farm Team.
This is our league currently manages the Farm Team offline - but would love to see a solution added to the system to improve our league's play.
Thanks in advance for reading.
2nd year salary cap dynasty league Needs replacement manager. H2h 1 win, salary cap is 10 million above the NHL's cap. No floor. Free league. Team needs a rebuild and someone in for the long haul. Rebuilds are faster in salary cap leagues due to players becoming available for bidding every summer when contract expires. Email for details jbrylinsabresfan at yahoo dot calm
The WHL Dynasty League is open for applicants! This is a brand new league. We do however run another very successful league called the OHL Dynasty League. A few members from the OHL league have already joined the WHL league to form a very strong base to this league.
We will be very picky screening out potential GM’s as a mature environment and long-term sustainability is our most important priority.
I highly recommend viewing our very well organized forums to learn more about our league. The link will be included at the bottom of this post.
-Salary Cap + 28% of NHL Cap
-25 man main roster
-25 man prospect roster
We have 4 of 16 spots remaining.
To apply post in our applications section on the forums. This is the quickest method to get a response as any of our staff can review and respond to your application. You can also PM me here.
The Memorial Cup Explained
The WHL Dynasty League is being formed in the wake of the already established OHL Dynasty League. Eventually the QMJHL Dynasty League will be formed completing the entire Canadian Hockey League. All three leagues are a carbon copy of each other. Tweaks and rule changes to the leagues will be made by the collaboration of the LEB staff of each of the leagues (input from members of all leagues will always be highly considered). Keep in mind each league will NEVER require any participation or acknowledgement of the other existing sister leagues.
However, once the formation of all three leagues are complete, there will be a website created for the Memorial Cup linking the three leagues together. The main Memorial Cup website will simply host live standings of each of the leagues as well as link members to each leagues forums.
Once each leagues independent playoffs are complete, the champions of the three leagues will be "calculated" head-to-head utilizing the stats from the scoring period of their respective championship match.
OHL Champ vs WHL Champ
Using the transfer team option, the new manager will get an invite much like a returning manager. The former manager will get a notice that he no longer runs the team.
awesome thanks so much steve!
just confirming that the transfer of managers does not have to be between two current managers correct? like i can drop someone and bring another manger in to take over his team?
The commish can use the Transfer Team option after the league is renewed to move a team from one manager to another. The draft pick trades will not be altered.
If the commish deletes a team, all draft pick trades for all teams in the league are deleted.
So the best way to go is the Transfer Team option, post renewal.
can managers be switched out of the league for a different one without disrupting the draft picks if they have been traded. ex: if a GM had no 2nd pick but 2 10th picks if you switched GMs could it come back exactly like that or would it change it back to one pick each round
If your going to reward teams with the fewest minutes....why have them at all? Individual stats are NOT configurable. The logistics of doing so and keeping stat-tracker accurate would be a nightmare.
If you DON'T want to utilize goons by granting their sole stats useful, then just eliminate the category.
To the Yahoo programmers: can we make the Penalty Minutes category configurable? Right now the category is won by the team with the most minutes in a head-to-head match, but members of my league feel that's not right--they want to award the win to the team with the fewest. Can we program at the start of the season to be either most or least, depending upon what the League Commissioner chooses?
