Some of DropIts picks i wanted so bad too. I was ticked because he picked close to the end and he took 2 guys that i had lined up my queue and suddenly they were gone.

I'm really happy I got two good starting goalies this year *knock on wood*, last year Marty Brodeur had a real rough start and then that was it for goalies for me until late in the season when I picked up Riemer. Every few weeks I'd loose two or three points just from goaltending which blew.

I of course had last pick ...There is a conspiracy. Well who knows, maybe I got a couple of sleepers.

your team looks pretty good I thought....it does kind of suck waiting for last pick, but its nice getting two in a row that early...it's pretty hard getting first pick and then waiting 23 picks for your second...


Anyways, woooot! Hockey has started!!

Good luck in the pool everyone!

I think the last pick thing makes it difficult in that your team doesn't have that uber-high end talent (a la crosby, ovechkin, sisters), but you manage to get two other superstars in a row still. I found it good when I was in that position in that I didn't often have to choose between players.. I could just take both. "I need a forward and a goalie... well, I'll grab both!"

That next pick after those two comes painfully slow though.

I know that hemmerlady is a rookie for the yahoo leagues but she has a player, Ryan Ellis, benched tonight and there is a roster spot for him. She'll need to update the team before 7pm EST.

thanks for the heads up....think i got the message too late though. :? Assuming I can get this done next time, how do I go about putting a benched player in the line-up? (If it's Hemmer, cover him in bubble wrap, bwahahaha)

Edit: oh i see, if you didn't miss the deadline :? you can drag and drop the player into the lineup...

Yah exactly. I usually do a full week at a time and just check back once or twice during the week and make sure I don't have something to worry about, like a player on IR or something.

And speaking of which... there is an IR slot you don't normally see, which is for... players on the IR! If you put them in your IR, you can pick up another player temporarily.

And on the note of picking up players... you'll see that available players have either a W or a FA under "Owner". If they are a W, it will have a date beside it too. W stands for Waivers, and FA stands for Free Agents. W players join your team on the date in brackets should you pick them up and be the highest person in the waiver order to put a claim on them (waiver order is shown on the "League" tab that shows standings). FA will join your team immediately if you have room.

Just a few tips, since you're new to this.

I think he's actually playing in the AHL (Milwaukee Admirals).

Not sure. I`ve checked it out though, and he indeed is on the Admirals now.

Ungh. Picked up Mikael Samuelsson after already setting my line up. Forgot to log back on and re-do the line up after he cleared waivers. All the lineup changes I made were removed once Samuelsson hit my roster. Annoying. So I failed to dress 3 players that played this morning. As if I wasn't in a big enough hole as is, with Dawg having a big starting night (10 players in the line up to my 3! yikes). LOL should be a tough week to come back from.

Ok, I picked Lui - of course b/c of my bad luck streak, he's already crapping the bed. (If I traded him, he'd turn it around immediately and not lose a game the rest of the season).

Saw that Sid is no longer wearing the no-contact jersey in practice...that's cool. That's the jersey we should sew my boyfriend's name into :(

Who took (stole) Landeskog (dirty bastard)? Dude is on fire already. Not to knock RNH but part of me wishes we needed a winger at draft time. His play is impressive.

my earlier post is interesting considering RNH is currently kicking ass.

Anyway. Anyone know of a good source for reliably predicting which goalie starts a game? Uh, not asking for any particular reason, lol
