  1. Our league is asking all teams to commit to the Fall season by Friday, without yet having sent a return date. All but six guys on my team are too skittish to lock in at this point, so we're sitting the season out. Tough calls all around... you can see why the rink is eager to re-open, but it definitely seems like starting with pick-ups is the way to go, and leave leagues on hold for a while.
  2. Averaging about 3000 new cases a day here. Seems really premature to be opening an ice rink, but what do I know. It's the Kings practice facility... I guess they need to get ba- OH WAIT NO THEY SUCK.
  3. Anyone back to playing beer league yet? Curious what kind of protocols are in place. They're reopening our rink this weekend, but havent' set a start date for the league yet. We left off with just the championship game left to play, which could mean we restart with a championship game. But I'm definitely not feeling ready to be breathing heavily on the bench two feet away from someone else just yet...
  4. Ha! In all seriousness, I just did a quick bit of research today... there are about 100 players (not counting goalies) who currently have a Fantrax rating of 60 or better for the season (based on our format). The average salary among those players is about $6.1 million. Way higher than I would've expected. Proves two things... 1) The best players are typically paid the most money. No shit, right? But what I really mean is that there aren't very many "steals" out there these days. 2) Average cap hits are really increasing exponentially and very, very quickly. I'm pretty sure if we did this same study 5 years ago the average would've been like $4.5 million or less. I think it's fair to project that our salary cap will continue to rise in the coming years.
  5. Eh I'll probably keep him. Getting relatively inexpensive contributions from Huberdeau and Point, plus my D is cheap. I think it's worth it in the right circumstances -- only $2.5 mil more than he's making now. Plus by 2025 our salary cap will be $500 million.
  6. Just a pain to do it 9 times, so I always put it off until I find it personally annoying. That happened today, so I'll do it shortly.
  7. They'll be RFAs though. Tkachuk and Point, anyway. Weird little side note... point and tkachuk are teammates in at least 3 of the 9 capwise leagues. It's a good week for those owners (including myself in PCFL)
  8. That's exactly what a robot would say.
  9. As if I can't use admin tools to find out who you are.... muahahahaha. I trust you completely... carry on.
  10. Based on the excess of Edmonton content, I'm guessing tim.
  11. Malkin, JVR and Gretzky. Not bad! Although if I'm going for maximum points and all-time Jameses... I guess it'd be Malkin, Gretzky, and James Patrick, for a total of 4498
  12. Yeah my sarcasm translated poorly.
  13. I think Tanev fits the bill of a second pair D man, right?
  14. Arizona has terrific golf courses, open 12 months a year. If you follow phil on Instagram, it comes as no surprise that it was on his list. I'm excited about joseph as part of this deal. I think that's even a little more than I'd expected. Even if galchenyuk doesn't work out and walks after this year, theres still something to look forward to in the future. Would love to see them add a second pair d man next week. Maybe add a third line winger. I'm a little worried about the third line still. Not sure bjugstad can carry it.
