  1. I just keep failing to set my lineups in time with afternoon games. And yeah, there are so few dual-position players... I feel like it should just be IF, OF, and UTIL.
  2. Gotta be honest, I hate this so far...
  3. If anyone wants a front row seat to watch me humiliate myself in a sport I know very little about, consider joining this Fantrax public baseball league that I just joined: https://www.fantrax.com/fantasy/league/kouao6xlkmq2h0iu/home H2H scoring just like our hockey leagues. 1 player at each field position plus 2 UTIL, 2 SP, 2 RP and 4 P, and 9 on the bench. HR, RBI, R, SB, BB, AVG; SV, K, W, ERA, WHIP Live Draft Sunday night at 7:30 eastern.
  4. Oh boy, I have so many. Like when I took Matt Hunwick one spot ahead of Brayden schenn in the 09 amateur draft. Or taking Teemu Pulkkinen 3 spots ahead of Holtby in 2010. Re entry drafts weren't much better. I drafted Ty Conklin... twice! But trades... oh man. Kris Letang for Thomas Hickey? Sure, why not. Brad Marchand for Marek Zidlicky? Nice! JRoc mentioned the Lucic/Point deal above, but didn't include that i originally gave him Freddy Andersen for Lucic. Yeesh.
  5. ECHL looks like it's closing up shop for the season, too. At least some divisions. Not a huge feeder for the NHL, but might affect the development of goalies in NHL organizational depth charts.
  6. We'll be close to that I think but might be safe. Worth noting: when someone PMs you to say that you're up in the draft, it seems polite to thank them. But maybe don't, haha. Save the emails!
  7. It's a little thing, but there's no longer a way to tell which messages are read vs. unread in the quickview dropdown of the Inbox. When you go to the actual inbox, there's a slight color difference to indicate unread messages. But there used to be an icon (a little dot to the right of the person's avatar).
  8. Apologies in advance if this comes across as "rubbing it in" to anyone who is struggling, but just to add a voice of positivity... I am loving so many aspects of this! Every morning when I would normally be getting in my car to begin the long LA commute, I now go for a run. And without having to balance the effects of late night beer league, I've been able to run a lot. Running in the morning means I don't need to spend time showering until later, which means more time with my 2 year old. Also 2 (nearly 2, really) is a super fun age... feeling very lucky to be home to
  9. Exactly. It's possible Sorokin could show up next year and play 66 games and lose eligibility... but extremely unlikely.
  10. Eh I think since we use AAV instead of cap hit, ELCs aren't inherently better... you could almost argue that if they get to RFA bidding with less NHL experience, their value increases. Time will tell i guess.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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...
