Discussion as related to the HF.net Fantasy Hockey Leagues - All Star League, Conn Smythe, and Jack Adams

  1. What's new in this club
  2. A new Fantasy Hockey season deserves a new FHL Thread. I am officially opening up the new All Star League thread. Good Luck to all!
  3. Giving Fantasy hockey a whole new meaning I see .... All joking aside ...thanks for the info about junk mail I should send something out to look for the survey there if one does not find it immediately.
  4. I found one that had "Animal Farm" as the subject. I thought I'd accidentally joined some George Orwell book club. No. Not at all George Orwell. Two legs VERY baaaad.
  5. Found it....ended up for some reason in my junk mail right next to the Keto Diet Plan, Nigerian bank notifications, and Hot Asian Singles emails. Anyways, filled it out and sent.Thanks for hosting Doc, and looking forward to next season as well!

(I will add myself since YAHOO really does not like uneven team leagues). thanks ~doc EDIT: once the League starts, all discussion goes in this thread. Thanks

  11. i apologize... I did not do it last year. Life just got too busy. Will try to get something together in the next week or so.
  12. Gripe...In a big way!!! Remember when Freddie Andersen was one of the best fantasy netminders? Yeah, neither do I. The Danish puck-stopper has been flipping the bird to me and other owners of him during the fantasy playoffs for the better part of two weeks now. Heading into a Tuesday night matchup with the Preds, he had allowed 14 goals in three games. UGH! What the hell has happened to him and the Leafs ...... Are the Laffs more pretenders again instead of contenders ....... He alone has cost me many goalie stats .......
  13. LOL.... yeah what was I thinking... the curse of HJ lives on...LOL. Plus the Sabres only have 2 games this week and it being the last week... I figured I could get better production elsewhere. Man have both the Sabres and Leafs sucked recently. Andersen is killing my goalie stats...
  14. Thanks, I had some good conversations with Mickey's Gang and Mom's Luv LeTang too today. All Science major's in the final four eh? I saw you dropped Eichel -- did @Hockey Junkie put a curse on him before he traded him to you?
  15. @hf101 Congrats on making the finals. I was 1 hit away from tieing the hits category and having a 7-7 tie in which I would have been facing you. Good luck! You had a great year...
  16. There's not too much chatting here in this group but I thought I'd update the Final week of competition.
  17. @ruxpin -- All Valid points. I get it. I really liked it when Yahoo allowed a 2-week finals. Each offseason @pilldoc sends out a questionnaire and we evaluate what needs tweaking for the next season. You are welcomed to join in that conversation.
  18. And while I'm ticking people off, I don't like randomly ending the season a week early either. People being rested in the last week isn't a valid reason when everyone has the same issue and it's a non-keeper league. Some of us really do enjoy playing as long as possible.
  19. Personally, I'd use everything you presented to argue for 8 teams to argue for 6. I just diametrically disagree. I think the 5th to 9th place points you listed world be vastly more riveting with only 6 making it, and i disagree completely with the "only regular season" thing (truncated because I'm in phot). Six playoff teams instantly kills the competely unnecessary exception to protect the 1st seed team. To 6 stay in the league. Period. And the playoffs become a tournament among those staying. It's so obvious it's disturbing, frankly, that it's not being done. Sorry, but this particular subject has me really irritated. For competition purposes, there is no excuse that in a 12 team league the first seed team has to risk losing to a team that finished with over 100 less points, and it's happened two years in a row. And not in a set up that BEGS for a six team format since the top 6 teams stay. And to Hell with adults who cannot stay focused for a few months to something they agreed to. The people engaged might as well be able to enjoy it. I've said this in private, but I'll repeat here: i think decisions are being made in favor of those who will not remain interested no matter what you do over those who actually enjoy it but are faced with odd choices. Sorry. I don't agree at all with the 8 team format or the reasoning I've seen regarding it. It makes zero sense to me when the 6 is jumping up and down screaming because it's so obvious.
  20. @pilldoc When you got a GWG from Pulock on Monday , you know the same damn Pulock who I traded to you I thought well crap. Man I didn't want to trade him, he is an under the radar guy and I remember when we were working on a deal every offer back and forth I kept taking him off the table and you kept putting him back in. When I saw his GWG I actually cursed out loud because a) he did it against the Jackets and b) he did it against me, lol.
  21. Thanks @yave1964 ... you beat me to the post. I’m officially bowing out of this match. Your two shutouts out of the gate put me on my heals.... I had a small chance but after looking at last nights results, I’m just down too much. I appreciate the kind words. I really can’t complain or be disappointed. A few weeks ago I was in last place and to finish no worse than 4th is testament to how hard I worked and never gave up. It was a tall order to make the playoffs and then to be matched up against first Joe and then you. Hey it was a great run. You are a tremendous GM and I wish you the best in the Championship Round.
  22. @pilldoc Man you had me sweating this week, I think I finally wrapped it up last night and man am I glad the week ends today. Good match doc, good luck in the next round. Great job of coming back strong down the stretch and making the final four.
  23. Thanks for the suggestions. I don't have an answer of opposition for either 1 or 3. Another possibility of adding the extra bench position would be to add an extra IR+ spot. #2. We chose to go with an 8 team playoffs for several reasons. One being any given year the All Star League or Conn Smythe league could have 14 teams depending on how many sign up in the fall. But the greater reasoning I have with choosing an 8 team format over a 6 team format is it adds interest for more teams leading up to the Finals. For example in the Conn Smythe league the 5 place team has 362 points, 6th - 356 pts, 7th - 352 pts, 8th - 352 pts, and 9th - 338 pts. Choosing a 6 x 6 playoffs when the top 6 teams stay in the All Star League is really no different than not having a playoffs and only playing the full season w/o a playoffs. On the other hand, the # 1 seed losing to # 8, or #2 losing to # 7 isn't really a best plan either for rewarding the top 6 teams. So... one possibility is to look at how a points system would work for choosing the top 6 teams in both leagues. Maybe more weight in points is given to the regular season vs the playoffs. I haven't worked through some numbers with this yet, but I think it is worthy of consideration. @yave1964 I don't have much more to add then what @hf101 mentioned. I am not opposed to increasing the number of moves, or any combination of adding another bench player or IR+ positition. IMO, a GM should not be penalized because near the end of the season, many players get banged up. In addition to what HF mentioned with 8 vs. 6 playoff teams, if you have a bunch of GM's vying for that last playoff spot it makes it more interesting....the ole..you are never really out of it until the end of the season. Look at my position in All Star ... think about it..I was in last place near the middle of January. I made 2 trades, one with you and one with Rux to see what would happen. A couple of weeks later, all of sudden I had a realistic chance of making the playoffs..and that is exactly what happened. There was no realistic chance of catching the #6 seed, but the #8 seed became very doable. Then look what happened last week .... I upset Joe and I can now finish no lower than 4th. If we had 6 playoffs spots.. I am not typing those sentences. However, I do get you POV. Bottom line we are trying to keep all the GM's interested up until the last week of the season. That is why we made the decision to make the President's Trophy and automatic spot back into All Star. They should not be penalized for having one bad week. You know that first hand as it happened to you last year. I agree with @hf101, maybe a weighted system could work. It is something we can work on throughout the summer months. I greatly appreciate your suggestions as we are always looking for ways to improve the HF.net FHL experience. ~doc
