  1. NJDevs '17-18 Fantasy Hockey

    Sworn Defenders earlier this week in a depth d move welcomed Zdeno Chara and Mike Green (along with an 18th). Officially giving up on Klefbom in an Oilers down year along with Olli Maata and a 14th. In more impactful news, Sworn D sends off Thomas Vanek, Boone Jenner, Josh Morrisey and a 7th rounder for a 17, Brayden Schenn, Erik Karlsson and bringing back a team favorite, Jonathan Quick who will be the presumptive starter with Murray remaining as an insurance policy and keeper candidate.

    You mean in order of finish, right, 1-14, right? Wouldnt inverse after 1st be; 1,14-2.

    I’m doing what I can to get into that first tier without completely screwing up next year. Seguin and Toews should help raise my face off totals while popping in some goals. I’m not hurting on assists/points. Ideally I need more from Murray... but that’s why he was traded to me. I lose Keller... who was likely my third keeper after Draisaitle and Aho. But I’m still sold on Horvat, and Duchene is still a dark horse too. There were so many goalie keepers, I might be better served keeping Murray since his replacement cost would likely be a 4th. Klefbom will be released back after regressing. And while Ekblad is scoring some goals, his point total is disappointing still. I was hoping he’d reach 50 this year.

    Sworn Defenders trade Clayton Keller, David Krejci and their 9th round pick to the Dynamo Nation for Tyler Seguin, Jonathan Toews and their 18th round pick.

    Yea, I don’t think it would prevent trades... but at the same time it gives incentive to finish 8th instead of 14th... whereas now there is no difference. Right now, If you’re 8th and realistically won’t improve, you might as well trade off literally anyone of value for a minimal draft pick swap.

    I agree with all the above points. Perhaps we can borrow from the football league, and do a draft pick selection draft. Instead of a randomize order we follow first to last place finish from the prior year. That diminishes the tangible benefit of winning... but maybe we could adjust for that as well. Maybe something crazy like keeping an extra player that’s from the rounds 3 or later... but not keeper eligible? Or some alternative to that. But I agree this year it seems a lot of people gave up early because the picks being exchanged were too hard to pass up. The draft pick trades are a good thing... but there needs to be a counterweight to encourage parity over entrenching stratification or tiers of teams.

    The season rank tries to identify the most well rounded player even with the auxiliary stats we count like hits/blocks etc So Skinner is putting up some points, But +\- sucks and isn’t doing much on the power play or doing a lot of hitting/blocking.

    Hmmm... I’m four points BEHIND you and I’m looking to buy. Maybe I don’t know when to quit?
  9. Mini Brodeur Stick

    I wound up paying the $40 all in for it; seems in line with the banners when they were released. Can’t speak of quality just yet.
  10. Eddie Lack Acquired (for BInghamton) for Dalton Prout

    They get out of some salary this way.
  11. Good season everyone. Of course, Yahoo gave me a B this season because of my draft (despite me keeping most of my starters from the draft)
  12. Merry Christmas!

    Merry Christmas... my favorite gift has been this season so far.
  13. Why not just lock the teams not competing? We should be able to adjust our rosters until game time; just like how I needed to do with my TE situation. In the end; I think I'm just going to double on Chargers with Allen and Gates to hopefully offset whatever Rivers does... and if Red goes with Cousins; I like forcing his hand away from Rivers. It's also why I snagged Martavis Bryant; more preventing offsetting points; rather than playing him... especially since Deon Lewis will have lead back duties in my flex spot.
  14. Yea; there were a lot of different combos - but that's how these games go. Losing because of Duke Johnson would have hurt the most... because I dropped him after Sproles got hurt for Smallwood. Of course, then, Johnson started putting up solid flex numbers while Smallwood didn't seize the opportunity; and is now an inactive each week since the Eagles acquired Ajayi. Good match! and thanks
