I thought we were to have 4 IR+ slots.

Every once in awhile I see four, though I can't save it that way. More commonly, I see only two.

 

Which is correct?  If it's four, any suggestions why this is happening and what I'm doing wrong?

 

Yahoo coders have it in for you after you constantly call them 'monkeys'? :rolleyes:

I don't usually do it under this login, though.

We do and it is weird the way Yahoo made some changes.  (Personally I do not like the way they did.)

So ....lets pretend Eller is out with an injury.  If you click on Eller's roster position, then the 4th IR+ spot would "magically" appear.  The first two IR spots show normally, but the other 2 IR spots are "hidden" (though they are actually there).  Like I said, I DO NOT like the way Yahoo changed that.  If you have a 3rd player eligible for IR, just click and drag that player to the IR spot..

I've actually done that far.  But at that point it won't let me add without dropping and the player I have on IR reverts to his regular position (in this case it's Eichel).

 

It sounds like it's an idiosyncrasy rather than my doing something wrong.

Where does Eichel appear to be from your vantage when looking at my roster as a different manager?

@TropicalFruitGirl26


I see him listed as DTD on your starting roster...

Thank you both.

Yeah, that was what I was afraid of. I've put him in one of the phantom IR+ slots multiple times but he keeps going back.

 

Not a big deal for this instance, but during season and things start falling off players, it could become interesting

You're very welcome.
Hopefully this doesn't become an issue during the season.

Right now, all my players are healthy so no way for me to test this, but I don't want to find out the hard way that something is wrong.

Crap!!!!!  I am first to hit the injury bug before the puck even drops ....  I just took a HUGE hit at the Center position.

Toews is out indefinitely. :( I could just cry .........

I drafted Strome because Lebrun and a few others were hinting that Toews was going to miss significant time. I wasnt expecting it to be possibly the whole season.

FIRST TRADE OF THE YEAR!! And i am certain that nobody is surprised that it is between @ruxpin and myself.

 

RUX GETS Burns, Robert Thomas and Steutzle

 

I GET larkin, Seth Jones and Cody Glass

 

Rux niw has Carlson/Burns/Hamilton giving him the best trio on the back end in the league by far. The two kids, Thomas and Steutzle are on many lists for breakout candidates.

 

 For me I got Larkin, my favorite player with his tons of faceoffs and shots. Jones is okay, not a great fantasy player but not horrible. Cody Glass, i thought he would breakout last year but he bombed this year he is being forcefed into the 2c role in Vegas to sink or swim.

 

  Both of us got what we wanted.

I'm comfortable. I'll need to find a crap ton of faceoff wins, but I'm comfortable. 

 

How many offers and counter offers did we go through combined?  20? More?

 

From my end, Thomas made it happen.

On the surface, this looks like a clear "win" for the Hell Bears.
I mean, Burns and Thomas alone may pay dividends and whatever Stuertzle can contribute so early in his career would be gravy.

Larkin is, of course, a fantastic up n coming player....I just question what he will be able to do this season still given the fact that the Wings, while improved, still have a LONG way to go before being contenders, and the team, as a whole simply wasn't good offensively OR defensively...thus Larkin may not have the support to put up the kind of numbers a player of his caliber is capable of.
Of course, he seems to be turning into quite the face off monster...

Seth Jones can be solid, but if we go head to head comparisons with Burns, #88 is still the proven commodity despite seemingly taking a step back last season.
Cody Glass? Who knows. Maybe he is the Foil's version of Stuertzle...gravy contributions...or maybe he will be much, much more...

While I do like what the Hell Bears get here, I STILL would not discount the Foil as their GM is savvy, thinks long term, and has a nasty habit (nasty for the rest of us), of coming up Aces when people think he has no winning hand.
His players may turn things up a notch or three, or I can see him wheelin n dealing and turning an "ok" situation into a great one at some point during the season.

Rux for the initial win.
But Yave, as usual, may be lying in the weeds.... :bigteeth:

We officially begin All Star Leagu FHL action today....and want to wish everyone good luck and fun during the season.

Good luck to my opening opponent @pilldoc and his Ice Pigs.
We have a long matchup to start and we will probably be sick of each other by the end of it. :bigteeth:

Traditionally we have always matched up well.

 

Based on last years stats you might have a slight edge in G/SOG but from a peripheral standpoint I think I edge you out.

 

Goalies are I think Hellboy/Lehner slightly edges out Holtby and Varly....

 

Should be an excellent match .... Good Luck!
