I'll be setting up the leagues in the next day or two!

Blue has more player movement allowed.  Gold is more restrictive on the waiver front.

Comments/suggestions always welcome.

Sweet was going to ask about this, I am very pumped for this years draft.

Can you please restrict some of the offensive categories... I think last year we had G/A/pts/PPG/PPA/PPP/SHG/SHA  that is 8 categories solely for offensive production.  It seemed a little much to me.   I mean for every PPG your guy scored you got points in 4 categories.  G/A/PPG/PPA/SH(goals or assists) and total points seems more than adequate.

You want to reduce the offensive categories so you can be able to draft some Sabres don't you?
I'd have to chop off a bunch of non-offensive options then so as not to turn it into a goalie/trap league.

Yes, keep us posted.  I played the original fantasy sports game Rotisserie baseball back in the mid 80's (there's a great ESPN 30 for 30 episode on Rotisserie if you get a chance).  We calculated all of our stats by hand from the Sporting News box scores.  I haven't been involved in any fantasy leagues for about a decade now, so it might be time to jump back in.

Right now there are something like 11 offensive categories and 4 gt ones, changing that to 8 and 4 still doesn't make it a goalie league.  I was just thinking that scoring a ppg should not net you 4 points (potentially).  Have 1 overall points category but not one for each sub category.  Also since short handed g/a are rare as is just make it short handed points.  It is your league so you can do what you want but you asked for suggestions so thats all I had.

I am in again for gold.

I'm out. The SwampSweepers are officially going the way of the KC Scouts (well, hopefully more like the Winnipeg Jets). I'm out for this year, anyway.

The leagues are reinstated - automatic invites for last years managers were sent.

I'm attempting to see if an invite link works for open spots in Blue right now.

I'll look into everything else soon.

If you sent to my yahoo, just reactivated it.  I don't use it and they deactivate it every year.  Can you resend my invite?

Blue gives you more bench players and allows you to claim more players off waivers

Gold gives you only 2 bench spots and only 2 waiver claims per week so it requires you to be a bit more savvy.

If you have never played fantasy hockey before I would recommend blue this year just to learn how it works

If you like to scour the waiver wire each day to find new players - blue.

If you like to draft your players and then only on a needed basis try to tweek your team - gold.
