I feel like if Roseanne and the phanatic had a baby, at the same time Bobby Clarke and Jake voracek had a baby, and those two babies by some miracle got it on, we’d have something close to this.

What affect do the keepers have on your draft then? I.E - where do they slide in when we do a draft? 2 rounds from last year? or do we just eliminate those players being eligible to be drafted?

Does it make sense what I'm asking?

Also another vote for Monday - prime football watching time for everyone across the U.S, you have the 1 PM games finishing and 4 PM starting.

I'm so glad I checked the thread today. I've been swamped with work and just haven't been on as much lately.

I'm fine for Monday, but if we do Monday night, it would have to be like 6 p.m. EST? I have a work event starting at 7:45 p.m. PST, so I absolutely can't do anything that ends later than 9:30 p.m. EST.

I missed last year's draft for work, so I'd rather not miss two years in a row! I hated my team last year.

Try eBay for an old one (new, but actually from the HARTFORD Whalers) you will pay much less and you can get a Reebok, CCM or Adidas model. That or just hop down to Bradley Airport and go into any damn gift shop, you can get a package that includes a jersey, hat and shot glass for about $125!

I agree to an extent but a lot of teams use older versions of their jersey's for the alternates or wear an older iteration for a winter classic game. This is a bit different IMO. That said, the Whale is probably more popular than the Senators at this point! :lol

Also, if anyone wants co-commissioner duties let me know.

I haven’t a clue what to do for Keepers, or if I have to anything. I couldn’t see. Is there a way when we draft to skip a round? For instance, if we do the rule where we don’t draft a round 2 if we kept someone that was drafted in round 3 last year.

I’ll also look some more, maybe Yahoo automatically skips the round for which you have a keeper from?

In my football league, where your keeper is projected to be taken you lose that round's pick. So if I have a guy ranked 29th in a 10-team league, I lose my third-round pick.

How would this work if youíve got keepers set for two players ranked 26th and 28th? (This is my situation)

Oh that's a good point. Maybe you should just lose the round of your highest keeper then. I think that's fair.

Or just push that keeper to the next round manually?

I have never done a league with 4 keepers so it makes a little more challenging and brings more factors involved

I do like your idea but I don't know if it would be feasible/easy with the Yahoo settings

Iím inclined to agree with you. A guy who just got paid to play top line wing with Ovie and Kuznetsov just simply canít keep having this happen. Itís just such a senseless decision and a really disappointing one at that. If he canít fix this, that $5+ million a year contract will seem awfully steep for a glorified Matt Cooke. He has to stay top 6 productive, period. And I maintain that he can be a 20 goal guy if he focuses and maximizes his line mates. But this insistence on delivering questionable hits, that has to end.

The Wilson haters are gonna have a field day with this, and rightfully so.

What an idiot. I totally agree with your assessment as to why his new contract gets the hate.

Thats a major bummer. Hopefully its a speedy recovery and he gets back sooner than expected.

According to Spotrac he's only been suspended twice. I dont really trust the source, but I cant find another online source that you can search guys for suspensions.

Believe it or not until last year (when there was two preseason suspensions and the playoff suspension) Wilson had not been suspended before. This would be his fourth since last year’s preseason, assuming he does indeed receive a suspension

Not the way you want him trending. Always frustrating when you have a talented player that has a mean streak they can't control.

Shea Weber the new captain of the Habs.

And happy trails to Scott Hartnell, who is 10x better than Tom Wilson.

Doesnít look like thereís much of that happening. I think only unreasonable Caps fans can defend what happened last night. Iím very disappointed honestly. I want so badly to be a full-on Tom Wilson guy but I canít be okay with that type of stuff.

My fear with Wilson is that is indeed instinctual. Thatís concerning.

Can you actually see a scenario where he does not get suspended - particularly considering he is a repeat offender?

I tend to agree that any team he is on will be able to stop his tendencies.

Very concerning & he tries to play the knowingly ignorant card

"Oh I was skating at full speed in one direction, I totally didn't see that guy possibly in my projected path :rolleyes"

Hopefully the reality of not seeing the banner and enjoying the moment with his team wakes him up

I think he still sees it as the suspension he will receive will be appealed and then kicked to a mediator

Got to say, big fan of the Pens center depth this year. Much much better than the start of last year.
Crosby
Malkin
Brassard
Sheahan
Cullen.

Also, fuck Tom Wilson. That goon should get 10 games. He's bordering on Matt Cooke status for me.

He has to stay top 6 productive, period. And I maintain that he can be a 20 goal guy if he focuses and maximizes his line mates. But this insistence on delivering questionable hits, that has to end.

That's what's really sad and what sets him apart from someone like Matt Cooke - Tom Wilson is a legitimately skilled player who could seriously do some damage on a top line if he'd just pull his head out his jock.

Credit to you and Brohan for looking at this objectively. One thing I love about this thread is most of us are homers, but not to the point of defending violence like this.

:thumbsup My hard-line approach to hits like this (blindside or checks to the head) are well documented here: 10 games automatically for a first offense, no matter their prior history. Double it (at least) from there, depending on severity.

Everything is set for tonight

Here is the results of your keepers https://hockey.fantasysports.yahoo.c...9/draftresults

However the keeper you chose was ranked preseason is where they were slotted into the corresponding round. The draft order was randomized and then the keepers were slotted into the appropriate round

For example, my team I decided to keep:

Crosby (4)- Round 1
Kessel (30)- Round 3
Ehlers (57)- Round 5
Ardvisson (65)- Round 6

If you had two keepers in the same round it got reverted to the next round

I double checked the rounds and inserting them if you notice any errors please let me know so I can adjust

I'll split it with Brohan, he did all the work of setting the keepers to their specific rounds.

Also remember any keepers you have will go in their designated rounds. So if you kept a top player they will likely go as your first round pick anyway
