With the new NHL season only a month a way (yeah!), I would like to invite any interested board members to join the Net54 "Hockey Legends" Fantasy League! I was the commissioner of the Net54 baseball league this year, and it was a real success. Everyone was competitive and active and it turned out to be a whole lot of fun. I'm hoping that, with the approval of the moderator here, we can carry it over into the hockey realm on this board and have it become a yearly event.
If you're interested, please post your email addy here or send me an email. I will reply with an invite to the league. It doesnt matter if you're a rookie or a seasoned vet, everyone is welcome. All you need is an account with Yahoo.
Some vital stats for the league:
Live draft time: Sept 15th, 9:00PM EST Max. Teams: 14 Scoring Type: Rotisserie Roster Positions: C, C, C, LW, LW, LW, RW, RW, RW, UTIL, D, D, D, D, G, G, BN, BN, BN, BN, IR Stat Categories: G, A, +/-, PIM, PPP, GWG, W, GAA, SV%, SHO
It's gonna be a blast. Hope to hear from you!

Hey Jim. I'm a fan of roto leagues too and am more than willing to switch it over. As for roster size - I'm a fan of deep leagues, but I'll give some thought to cutting that down a few spots as well. Glad to have you aboard.
I was also debating whether the final offensive category should be SOG, GWG, or SHP. Not sure if I like SOG because it's such a high volume stat. Maybe GWG is better? Any thoughts?
Hey Guys. Draft night is getting closer (this Saturday night). We have 8 teams aboard already, but there's still room for more though if anyone else is interested. If you are, post your email here or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send you an invite.
Everyone who is already in the league - see you at the draft!
Hi Ben. Maybe having the draft on a Saturday night is affecting the number of people that have signed up so far. Perhaps a night during the week or a Sunday night would be better. Either way I will be there when the draft takes place.
Gary. You can set your team to "autodraft". It will automatically pick the top ranked player available when it is your turn. You can pre set it to avoid players you don't want and move guys up in your rankings that you think will have a better year than their current ranking. Jim.
Jim, sorry you couldnt make the draft! Do you have Java installed on your computer? If so, I have no idea what could have happened. For the most part I think the autodraft did very well for you! You got Heatley, Marleau, Gaborik and BOTH Sedin twins. That's a potent offense if I've ever seen one. Goalies went off the board extremely early though, so the Bulin wall is your #1 which is a little weak. I still think you have a ton of great players on your team though!
ps. everyone make fun of my buddy Steve on his autopick of Turple for his #1 goalie
