It's now 2:30, so I will randomize the names and post the official draft order in a minute. 

 

Anyone that wants to join still can but they'll be added to the end of the cycle. If we get through everybody drafting, we probably won't add any new people in.

Ya can you live stream the actual draw?  You would already be miles better than the NHL if you could.

Since Eich is on the clock and he is not online I can ask for clarification on one thing.

 

We are drafting the best player available, right?  Are we basing this on a goal of winning the Presidents Cup (or whatever the heck it's called), or the Stanley Cup? Some of my picks might change based on what the ultimate goal is.

 

You may have explained this upthread someplace, but I am lazy.

Best player available relative to winning hockey games. I suppose which games you want to win can factor in on an individual poster basis, depending on if one thinks games require something different depending on the time of year. I.e. "Best" is still in many ways a subjective classification.

He may be available at 12.

Sure, but that does not really answer my question.  In the regular season I want OV (for example), but not in the playoffs.

I remember one issue we had last time was people stopped taking the top player, and started filling out a roster, fantasy style. I hope that doesn't happen this time.

Yep. This is the key that everyone needs to remember this time (I'm yelling at myself here).

 

I have to figure out how to incorporate you now. 

Maybe since EichSnipe is still offline I'll just redo the list. 


Officially redoing the list, WC and North Buffalo rejoice!

Just got out of a meeting! If the list is redone, I'll happily slide in wherever. If you'd like me to pick, I will

I kinda liked 12. Thought I may be about to scoop Eichel at a potential bargain.

With the second pick in the blah, blah, blah ...

 

The team from Halifax, Nova Scotia is pleased to select our very own ...

No worries! McDavid seems like a slam dunk at 1 to me. If you want to argue Crosby, I'd hear it. But 7 is an interesting place to be. Things get murkier down there. It'll be fun.

 

Back to back picks at each turn would have been cool though!

3 is interesting.
