Default SC Fantasy Hockey

Well, it's that time of year!!

Tie up your laces and hit the ice, beause the members of the Sports Central Message Boards have the opportunity to face-off against their peers in a full-length fantasy hockey season.

As of now, CBS Sportsline and SC's fantasy affiliate, FantasyTeam, have yet to open their games, despite being just 17 days away from the start of the NHL's regular season! Therefore, I have determined that as the one iniating this league, I would prefer to use Yahoo!, as they have many different options.

I think most of us have used Y! a lot and know what it has to offer in other sports -- the SCMB uses it for its fantasy baseball league -- and it offers the same features in hockey.

We need to get this going soon, so reply to this if you are interested and suggest your opinion as to whether you want a Fantasy Point league, a Head-To-Head league, or a Rotisserie league.

Who's interested?

I think we should use a roto format.

Can't say I'd be in because I have no knowledge or even interest in hockey - very rarely do I have interest.

This is still a good idea, Lee, I recommend contacting a bunch of the NHL board posters over the last month and I'm sure you'll get some of them to play.

I hope we get good participation out of this.

I'm in.

Edit: IMO, roto format would be the best.

Well, I have just as much interest in the NFL and MLB as you do in the NHL, Marc (that is, I only watch the all-star game or playoffs or championship game).... so I don't see why you coudl at least show support for your boards and put a team in, because I did for the NFL and MLB SCMB leagues!!

...but you are all leaning towards the roto format!?... blah!... Well, I'll give the public what they want, but I am really into this head-to-head thing now that the SCMB f-ball league is using it!!!

I guess I'll give it a shot. Even though I don't follow the NHL, I know a bit...

Well, gosh darn it, I'm in, too, then!

You provide the details and The Ice Jacksonians are in. You might have to excuse some of my hockey igorance, though.

Exclamation SCMB Members Fantasy Hockey League on Y! -- Info

Y! F-Hockey URL: http://hockey.fantasysports.yahoo.com/hockey
League Name: SCMB Members League
League ID#: 4622
League Password: scboards
League Size: 10 teams
Draft Type: LIVE Draft
Draft Day: Tuesday, September 25 @ ... 3:25 PM PT ... 4:25 PM MT ... 5:25 PM CT ... 6:25 PM ET
Roster Size: 17 players
League Type: Rotisserie
League Settings (debatable): http://hockey.fantasysports.yahoo.co...tings&lid=4622

Sorry, guys, for the odd timing of the draft, but the only times available to do the draft on a Saturday or Sunday or Friday was "Early AM"... unless we leave it until October 6, at which point the season has already started. If you can make the Live Draft, great... if not, be sure to edit your "pre rankings" (link for that is available on your team/roster page once you join the league).

If you don't like some of the league settings, or think we should change the league type even to a head-to-head or fantasy points league, be sure to discuss it here prior to the start of the season.

Default Head-to-head

I thought you could only use the H2H format for football? If we can use it in hockey, I change my vote from roto to H2H.

It's probably Sean, since his team name has something to do with Boston.
