Hi Guys!

I would suggest that if this league takes hold, we should move our fantasy banter over
to the fantasy hockey board linked at the top the right hand margin of this page ------------->
(unless you guys are still using it for SLH - which I doubt).

If we have the draft on Sunday (Oct 9), we will only miss a few games.

Please sign-up soon (if your man enough :> ) so we can decide if we want to go ahead with 
this or not (personally, I think it should be fun, different & challenging)

I've registered a team (the Toasters) but can't make the draft. Am I correct in supposing that the autopick feature will pick my team based on the draft list I've set up?

I've been cordially invited to join this league (thanks, Stamp), but I'm afraid I'll have to decline. I've decided not to participate in fantasy hockey this year as a form of protest against last season's lockout. It's one of a number of actions I'm taking that will have negligible impact and go absolutely unnoticed by anyone connnected with NHL hockey (except maybe local pub owners). But I'll feel better.

Oglethorpe is in the house. Looks like we have enough for a league.

Cody,

decided not to participate in fantasy hockey this year as a form of protest against last season's lockout.

I completely understand. You will get nothing but support from me.

I took similar action when the (North) Stars moved to Dallas. I swore I would never watch, go to, or read about another NHL hockey event/player/coach unless the NHL moved back, not just to Minnesota, but to St. Paul (where they belong!)...

Well, as you know, the rest is history.

But I'll feel better.

Indeed. I'm sure the NHL could care less about my little insignificant boycott. And, I sincerely doubt my actions caused them to return to St. Paul. Never the less, I felt better.

(That being said, I recommend you direct your anger were it belongs (and I don't know that you aren't). None of this would have happened if it wasn't for Gary Bettmen. Now, one could argue that since the owners are stupid enough to allow this idiot to continue to be the commissioner, then, really, it falls in their laps. However, the fact is, since the league has been so grossly miss-managed, they were forced to lock the players out before they all went bankrupt).

So, good luck in your efforts. I hope you can send a letter to someone at the NHL office on a night in January when you would rather be watching a game (that's what I did). Tell them what you are doing, and why. You'll feel even better. I did.

Stamp

I always thought they belonged in Bloomington. I'm still holding out until we get a team on the Southwest(Bloomington, Eden Prairie, Minnetonka). :^P

I signed up.

I'm onboard. This will be interesting... 6 starters, just like a regular NHL team! The bench might be a little deep though. Even with 12 teams we are going to have massive talent on our benches. And knowing myself, I'm going to be agonizing over it until gametime and then afterwords my hindsight will beat me up over my bad decisions.

Room for one more? C'mon! You've got to have an Islanders fan in the mix, right? Right?! ;-)

Won't be live online tonight but the draft board is set, my DISH DVR is recording Isles games, and the chill is finally starting to blow through the Rocky Mountain air. Woo hoo!

Foolish best,
