    Hockey is back with us!

    I'm thinking of forming a TalkBass-only fantasy league on Yahoo. Anyone interested? Please reply here in the thread, via PM, or by e-mail to bob_lee@qscaudio.com.

    For anyone interested:

    In order to join the league, go to http://hockey.fantasysports.yahoo.com/hockey/register/tos?league_id=2594&password=gordiehowe.

    Or go to http://hockey.fantasysports.yahoo.com/hockey/ and click the "Sign Up Now" or "Get Another Team" button and follow the links to "Join a Custom League". When prompted, enter this League ID# and password--League ID#: 2594; Password: gordiehowe

    After you join, feel free to start pre-ranking players for the pre-season draft. It'll be an autopick draft, where each team takes a turn picking a player, and you get the highest-ranked player available according to your own or Yahoo's default rankings. Rounds of picks continue until all the roster spots are filled.

    Oh, and it's free. ;)

    The season starts on October 5, IIRC, so we have just over a month to gather additional players, then we'll do a draft.
     
  6. Oh boy, this ought to interesting... With the rule changes and the long break anyone's got a chance to break out...


    I don't know why they hate goalies! Even my goalie pads are too big, and they're legal in my highschool association because they're the standard size. :p

    Paul, it would be really cool to have a team called The Clash! ;)
     
  8. If you insist! :)


    In retrospect, I should have gone with your trend and been the Nordiques or the Cougars, or the Rockies, or the Americans, etc.

    God, it feels great to have fantasy hockey back. I used to play on The Sporting News, I think.

  10. I think most of my high rankings are either from Detroit or Buffalo, or have played there in the past.


    I guess I haven't been keeping up with all of the transactions... I was surprised more than a couple of times.

    You can change your team name, if you want.

    As a longtime fan of the Clash, I was just commenting on your TB name. ;)
     
  12. Hmmm, a mix of the two might be cool. It is a musical league of extraordinary gentlemen after all.

    Yes. Put the players you want the most at the top of your list; when you turn comes, the highest ranked player available will be yours. Any players that you don't rank yourself will be assigned Yahoo's default rankings.

    If you and the other participants are interested, we can decide to choose a date and time for a live draft instead of an autopick. With a live draft, you can log in and make your choice with each turn, or just let it choose your players based on your rankings as in the autopick. You can also log in and out of the live draft as needed, and the automation would take over when you're away.

    Yes. Unpicked players are "free agents," and you can pick from them to replace players you drop from your roster or move to the disabled list.
     
  19. Courgars have now joined the league... :)

    Forgive me if I am slow to catch on... I've pretty much been out of hockey circles since my team disbanded at the end of 2002. But we'll see how it goes :)
