The "Yay, I'm Crowing" and "Dam I'm Griping" Fantasy Hockey 2016-17 Thread

Recommended Posts

Sent out a couple offers to GM's in the All Star League via private message.....will deal with whomever has the better deal and/or is the quickest to respond.

 

If no takers, I can still go into next week with what I have.

 

Open for business.

 

For others I did not send a note to, have a look at my updated trading block on the ESPN league page, and if something interests you, send me a note and see if it flies.

I have a surplus of centers in the All-Star Fantasy League. I need D-men and wingers if anyone wants to trade.

I have some decent wingers available. But who are the C's available?

 

Ill take a look and get back to you

Yup.

 

Multi-purpose pain in the arse player.

 

When he is going, points roll in. Slow start notwithstanding, I don't wanna give him up.

I had a look. I don't feel a trade looking at the names, if only because I also have a surplus of C's and I didn't see a fair swap that made me feel it.

 

But looking at your team I have to wonder why you say you need Dmen. Karlsson/Byfuglien/Doughty is a pretty potent trio.

I am rolling a top 4 of Klingberg, Fowler, Ristolainen and Wideman haha

Well, barring a complete collapse by my guys, some crazy production out of my opponents' guys, and a meteor hitting the Earth sometime this afternoon, my Green Star Blades should win out against Bakanekimiwa's Bakanekimwas.

 

I lead 142.7 - 103.8 going into today's final match up, and I have a 7 skater + 1 goalie to his 3 skater advantage for today's games.

 

Feeling good about my chances to up my record to 2-1 and then turning my full attention to one of my FHL mentors:

@J0e Th0rnton and his Halifax Sharknados!

 

Be ready Joe!

The Green is Mean, and are comin for ya! :lol:

I wonder how good my team would be if the phone apps would save my rosters when I change them.  I just updated the app (I hope) so maybe that will help.

Was a close match much of the week as we were neck and neck for most of the week.  Good Match!

Oddly, it was the first match I lost, but also the first match I actually enjoyed.

Good luck this week TFG :)

 

I barely pulled a victory out this week. Jammer managed to tie me in NAHANA and it was a good one.

 

Lost my work league this week..........

Same to you my friend.

 

I "circled" this match up on my schedule.

Always good to see where I am against an FHL vet who helped teach me the ropes.

 

If certain players do what I think they will this week, I like my chances.

But you, sir, are one sneaky GM....I do NOT take you lightly in the least, despite your losses this past week! :ahappy:

Neck and neck going into Thursday with scores that would be leading. Against all but one crazy guy with 90 points :)

Yes.

One question though...and I noticed that JUST NOW...

 

I thought you were 3-0 winning your last match up by 0.4 points?

Just looked at the overalls, and I see you are listed at 2-1 and you had LOST the last match up 160.1 - 157.5...difference of 2.6.

 

Looks like there were 3 pts added to your opponent. Was there some stat that was not calculated till later for your opponent?

Maybe there was a stat correction I guess. Happens. I won my work league based on a stat correction for Brent Burns last year lol

Ahh, ok.

 

Well...in that case, instead of playing to try and square my record with yours, I can play to get AHEAD of you in the All Star Standings now... :5726b5f6e7bd6_bigteeth:

@J0e Th0rnton

 

Well, we've been at each other's throats all week long.

Neither of us could take any real lead and keep it and now we enter the final day separated by a mere 4.1 pts, currently in my favor.

 

Gonna come down which players are on their game today. Simple as that. Everything seems about even right down to the man games remaining.

 

I believe Cam Talbot WON'T be playing for you today, leaves you with no goalies...I already had no goalies going today.

Dennis Wideman has been a healthy scratch so he may not play for you....leaves you with 5 skaters today.

 

I will have 5 skaters as well (6 if Nick Ritchie, who has been DTD, plays)....so there we have it. 5 aside.

 

That all said, you have three guys who could potentially net you MULTIPLE points: MacKinnon, Scheifle, and Benn.

Those three have more potential than any single one of my guys I have going...Rick Nash being my best bet for multi-points.

 

My breakdown is 4 forwards, 1 D-man (Adam Larsson).

Yours is 3 forwards (the big three mentioned) and two D (Fowler, Faulk)....assuming Wideman is scratched again.

 

Will certainly be interesting today.

GL to ya...just not too much. ;)

Curious about a trade that was never made in All Star......but would like to know what others think:

 

Team A trades:

Auston Matthews (C) + Henrik Zetterberg (C,LW)

 

And for that,

Team B trades:

Filip Forsberg (C,LW) + Brent Seabrook (D) + Johnny Boychuk (D)

 

Again, these players are no longer being traded for each other, but it was proposed at one point and was very, very curious as to what ppl thought were the dynamics of this and which seems like the better deal.

 

I know lots of other things factor in, like actual team needs and hot/cold streaks, but on the surface?

Whaddya all think?

Would have been a win for Team A in a one year League.  In a Keep League Matthews will be a bonafied star.

 

There is no doubt Matthews will get points , but as a rookie in a 1  year league.....Since his 4 goal debut night...he has only scored 2 more goals since then.  It will take time for him to get adjust to the NHL as teams learn to defense him.

 

IMO, Team B should be glad that trade did not go down as I think they would have been giving up to much.  As I mentioned before, in a keeper league, a totally different story.

 

Just my 2 cents

Good match TFG. Came down to the wire as a measly 2 points. Both our teams sucked sunday with the exception of Scheifele for me and that was the difference. Could still be reversed with a single stat correction lol.

Yep. Nail biter all week.

 

It was a hearbreaker for me.

Like you said, Scheifle was the only one who "came through" on Sunday.

Had ANY of my guys, any of them, gotten me a goal, or even just another assist, it would have been the other way around.

 

One of the bad things about having teams with players on both working against each other like I had in that Cgy-Ana game.

Get some points at the expense of the others getting minuses....

 

At any rate, since I hung in there with a good FHL player like you, I feel I can hang with ANYONE now. ;)

Bad News --- Lost to FD in All Star. Now sitting at 1-3. :( Just having a rough year so far.

Good News --  4 game win streak in Conn Smythe to start season at  4-0 :)

Heartbreakering News -- in a real close match after starting the week almost down 50 to @yave1964 wife, I claw my way back and lose a heartbreaker by 5 points.  Please tell your wife Lady Lex, congrats....I thought I almost got the win.  I still like my Jack Adams team and now I stand 3-1.

@pilldoc

This is Julie @yave1964 wife. Wow that was close!! I was feeling pretty good and then I started getting pretty nervous yesterday. I was afraid to look so I had my husband look at my score. What a relief!! Thanks for a great game!

      Similar to last seasons Crow or Gripe thread, with the NHL season and consequently, our Fantasy Hockey season just around the corner, thought it was time to have a thread where we can celebrate or bemoan our fantasy team's performances throughout the year.   This thread, since it is just bragging or bitchin, is open to ANY fantasy leagues, whether HF.net, NAHANA, or any other you may be participating in throughout the season.   Hopefully, we can get some nice crowing and grip

      Here is the thing, @J0e Th0rnton and I have developed kind of a rivalry in the All Star League and in Nahana as well, every game is a fight and I have lucked into my unfair share of victories. Last year in the All Star league, J0e had traded me Quick for Kesler at the deadline and Quick got me three wins including two shutouts and I beat him by a point or two, and if I am not mistaken we had the highest points of the year against each other. It is crazy, almost every time we play it is like that

      Oh I remember that trade very well..   @J0e Th0rnton is still kicking himself over that trade.  It was like a heavyweight fight between 2 giants in the All Star Finals last year.  I just had to chuckle as it was happening again...   Here's to the 2 of you for being great friends and competitors and giving us some memorable FHL matchups.

      Well, then, have them wear long tailed shirts for crying out loud....    That all said, there is going to be a mad scramble for teams from the middle to the bottom trying to get in....I have NO IDEA who I would be facing in Round 1, except that I KNOW it won't be J0e or Leafs Nation.

      So I win last week and get home ice vs. the team I just beat, with quite a few guys playing four games this week.   So I'm moving down into the consolation bracket.   On the bright side, my AS team is the only fantasy team I have left after losing out in the mother of all tiebreakers in my other league.
