Ok hockey people...is everyone as stoked as I am to have hockey back?

I feel kind of dirty being so eager for the NHL, I actually hate that I am, I feel like a scorned lover that just caught my spouse cheating on me but love her so much I can't not take her back.

Anyways, enough on that, my real purpose for this thread is to gauge interest in another yahoo fantasy, as much as I love the FHL I have always enjoyed the yahoo leagues that we've all shared together and would love to continue that tradition going forward....this will be the fourth year if we do it!!

Let me know people and I'll get it all setup ASAP if there's enough interest.

I am tempted.. I always enjoyed our Yahoo pools.. but I have a feeling that I'll be kept pretty busy with maintaining the keeper site.

Put me down as tentative.. leaning towards a yes!

I'm in. Finishing 4th didn't sit well with me, if you aren't first, you're last. I have a friend that would join as well.

OK I'm in.. but time is runnin' out! We'd have to draft tomorrow, I would think.

I will try to gather up the posse on the blog later.

ok kids, we'll do it this way instead...

I recreated a league from last year and it should have sent out invites to whatever email you used last year to join, if you didn't receive an invite that way and want to join the league then go to

http://hockey.fantasysports.yahoo.com/hockey

once there, click "join a league"

league ID#: 77542
Password: foiled

I've tentatively set the draft for 10:00 pm EST time, or 8:00 pm for all you Alberta yahoos, if that doesn't work than we can figure it out early tomorrow evening and we can adjust the time as needed.

We will need at least 8 GM's and an even number, I'll check back in as soon as I get home from work tomorrow which should be no later than 5:00 pm Alberta time, if there is an uneven number we'll have to scramble to find another GM but shouldn't be too hard even if he have to troll the OMB or something.

I'll try to check periodically from work during the day to see how things progress, but depending on how my workday develops that may or may not be something I can do, either way though I don't really see any other issues.

One last thing, if anyone wants to join but can't make the draft I encourage you if at all possible to take some time and customize your rankings and set it to auto draft, this will do two things, firstly it will ensure you get the players you want in the draft slot you are awarded but most importantly is a courtesy to all of the other GM's who are able to make it as it makes the draft go much faster and smoother.

Good luck all, can't wait!!

The invite I received is working though.. just signing up.


The problem is because numb nuts spelled the password as "floiled" . Don't drink and make pools, buddy! :lol:

Waiting on HL, plus Dawgtoy and his Bro-in-law.

I know Trogdor would join too, but he's in Mexico. Not sure when he gets back. I'm thinking tomorrow.

Well, we have six now, which will work, but man the teams will be stacked and waiver wires will be loaded with talent, would be nice to get two more...but if not, see you all at the draft!
