10 or 12 teams?
« on: January 09, 2013, 09:47:06 AM »
With blankzy joining us, we now have 10 active GMs and posting of new topics in the transactions forum ends in about a week.  Should we just cut the league at 10 teams or hope that two of the following four inactive sign-ups wake up and join us?

porro1971 = $350 (has not bid yet)
molinator = $350 (has not bid yet)
Daniel = $350 (has not bid yet)
mrmetsman = $350 (has not bid yet, resigned)

It's clear they won't bid. Maybe someone else will?

My proposal is - as documented in the other thread - to remove the 5 leading bids limitation from Bankzy and potential future newbies. They're late anyway, don't punish them.

And why exactly do you need to fix the number of teams now?

I cant see any reason not to just have 10. Adding 2 more will be hectic with only 1 week of bidding remaining

Let's make it 10 then...  :judge: Tyler, I will update Fantrax to remove the two other teams.  Can you update the FAAB to remove those names from the bottom and send a PM that the league is full and they are unfortunately not in the league anymore?

  • izaman3: Cally, are there like 4 guys in the league or what? lol
    November 16, 2017, 04:34:32 PM
  • Rob: Cally, Claude Julien isn't walking through that door anymore...
    November 16, 2017, 04:47:12 PM
  • Rob: and Torey Krug sucks at defense
    November 16, 2017, 04:47:46 PM
  • Rob: He's really just good at PP, otherwise he's a negative on the ice.
    November 16, 2017, 04:47:58 PM
  • Rob: Chara is a shadow of his former self
    November 16, 2017, 04:48:08 PM
  • Rob: a couple good young grinders, but otherwise their core is crap.
    November 16, 2017, 04:48:26 PM
  • Rob: McAvoy being the outlier
    November 16, 2017, 04:48:31 PM
  • WestCoastExpress: Iza - nah I’m just good at drafting. 10-team league. Got lucky with Brown/Schwartz and also Vas (he was my 3rd goalie haha). Also Karlsson dropped to round 2 because of his injury. Took Burns/EK 1-2 picks haha. Followed by Duby/Rask. Pavelski was my first forward taken lol
    November 16, 2017, 05:39:39 PM
  • WestCoastExpress: Also got lucky with Giroux falling. Love when Yahoo ranks players lower than they should. Lots of guys rely too heavily on the Yahoon ranks! Brown’s been a home run tho, he was close to a last round pick
    November 16, 2017, 05:40:48 PM
  • izaman3: I like to look and laugh at yahoo's rankings, and even fantrax's projections. I almost wish they would just stop lol. Brown's resurgance has been key for the Kings. I know people have been complaining about his contract for years. I'm also a big Giroux fan, so I like him lighting it up on the wing. Though I sold low on Courtier earlier this year in FNHL and am half starting to kick myself and half skeptical that he keeps it up.
    November 16, 2017, 05:53:36 PM
  • WestCoastExpress: Yeah there’s always the few surprises - that’s what helps you win the 1-year leagues. So far I’ve gotten lucky with some picks but so have other guys.
    November 16, 2017, 06:15:04 PM
  • WestCoastExpress: So should I accept this Kuch for Vasilevskiy deal? Think I’ll be alright with Duby/Helly holding the G stats down, along with Rask/Anderson? Realistically it’s kind of silly to have 5 goalies. 4 is a lot too if they’re all starters. Scooped Helly from FA for free tho :)
