Hey guys. You can give my spot away to someone else, I don't think I'll have the time between school and work. It wouldn't be fair to abandon it for days at a time. Thanks

I'd like to be at the draft live so to speak.. If you could make the draft more European friendly it would be awesome. I'm 6 hours ahead of you guys...:) Cut me some slack here... :)

In the meantime we need the last straggler to sign up (of the nineteen remaining invites) or decline, and one more player to fill the last spot.

Plus I want to keep track of who's who...I can figure out most of the teams based on past participation or using their own screenames as the team name but who are Bracknell Blizzards, DogGoneLivesOn and devils?

I am mocked in my leagues because I use 'Sworn Defenders' for every team, every year... lol

I joined a league created by someone on Twitter. I think it's pretty good. I have: Briere, Savard, Elias, Parise, Latendresse, Fehr, Pronger, Corvo, Burrows, Ference, Burns, Goligoski, Lucic, Kadri, Brule, Niskanen, Modano, Wilson, Ennis.

The part that sucks is my goalies are Biron and Roloson. Meanwhile someone has Lundqvist AND Miller haha.

I don't know how deep your league is, but I'm sorry to say, that team looks pretty brutal to me. No offense, but it is. :) Parise and Pronger are pretty much the only ones that will give you a lot of support. And you won't get anywhere with Roloson and Biron as your goalies.

And now that we're all set, without any further ado here's the draft order...note since Yahoo! has a snaking draft this is the order for all odd numbered rounds, including the first round. It inverses for even-numbered rounds, so for example I get the first pick of the draft and the last pick of the second round. Then the first pick of the third round and so forth.

As per tradition the league winner gets to pick where they draft though every year we've done this the league winner has opted for the top spot and I'm no exception this year. Everyone else I randomized by putting a team name on a piece of paper, turning them over, shuffling them and coming up with this order.

1. New Jersey Swamps

2. bdubdevs

3. devils

4. Extreme Reds

5. DogGoneLivesOn

6. Dynamo Nation

7. halfsharkalligator

8. Cali Hippies

9. dutch swedes

10. par99

11. NeoThrashers

12. Sworn Defenders

13. Lad's Pad

14. Bracknell Blizzards

15. PattyElias26

16. Don't Toews Me Bro!

17. Devilswede

18. The Six

19. Sabre Status Quos

20. Pat Zajac

I'll take that... 20 team drafts exceed any term deep league could cover ;)

I think I was 5th last year, and that did not work out so well, ( becuase I missee the 1st 2 rounds!)

Has have you set a definite draft time yet?

Ideally I want to set it like seven days before the draft so someone doesn't get thrown by a last-minute switch. Right now it's listed as Thursday the 30th but it's subject to change, so read your PM's...the more of you that respond, the better a consensus I can get on a good draft time for the majority. So far I've only heard from the Swedes and a couple others on the board.

A couple years ago we had pretty good attendance at the live draft - at least 15-16 teams. Last year I think it was more like 12 so hopefully we can get closer to the 15-16.

14th wont be too bad, i think i was around that area two years ago, time to start planning.

Also i couldn't figure out autodraft for the life of me , so i will be up stupidly late doing it manually.

So i'm assuming this one is already set, is someone making a second league that all us stragglers who didn't make it in time can join (I'd make it but I have no idea how to run a league ... sorta like Bettman)?

:noclue:

I missed the rush too but I'd be interested in a second league.

Ok i realised autodraft just works off your pre draft rankings, so i tried again, and realised that it wont get me a very ballanced team. i am litterally going to have to set my alarm for 3am and then draft!! then get up at 7.30am to go paintballing.

It was two and a half hours exactly last year...I think it's been around that time most years, considering it's twenty teams and eighteen rounds (360 picks total). That's why I initially didn't want to do it too late but on a Friday I think we can manage.

I wonder how long Kovy will last in the draft? :lol: I'll end some of the suspense now and state publicly his running buddy in Russia this offseason will be the first pick :)
