The Original 606 Yahoo Fantasy Hockey League

Post by BuffonIdol on Sat Sep 03, 2011 12:54 am

The draft date has now been set at Wednesday October 5th @ 9pm (BST)


Roll up! roll up laaaaaaaaaadies and geeennnntlemeeeeen!! jocolor

The original, the BIGGEST and the most fiercely non-competitive hockey league is back for a third outing and some important questions must to be answered...

Who will knock Azzy off his champions perch?
-tomatoes and wet sponges are available from the commissioners stand

Who will take the mantle of Atlas?
-That's Ancient Greek for you youngens. If you are still unsure ask Driz

Will CJ still draft Savard and his worn boxer shorts?

Will Leafy draft all Russians, even those with one leg?

Find the answers to these ponderings and many more here or simply wait for your invite from Don Homer.


The draft date has now been set at Wednesday October 5th @ 9pm (BST)


If you for some ludicrous reason are looking for Leafy's 606hl Yahoo league you can find it here

The Halakness Monsters are ready to go....another glorious playoff failure beckons.

No date is an issue, only timing. Would prefer evenings, because Mrs Driz no longer works evenings and weekend day time is taken up by the mini monster..

I will have my santogen and horlicks at the ready Very Happy

Thought this might happen...I'm not sure I can do any of those dates as I'm off to watch the Ducks in Finland! Can the AI autodraft for me?

One legged Russians ahoy! Any time, preferably an evening as Mrs Giraffe will probably want to go shopping at the weekend and that could bankrupt about three medium size nations unless I'm there to stop here buying MAC. All of it.

8pm is an awful time - I just can't do it. 9pm, yes, but 8pm is too early as my lad will still be awake...

<Will CJ still draft Savard and his worn boxer shorts?>

If I've had enough beers, the answer will probably be 'yes'. And depending on the number of beers consumed, I'll also most likely end up with the wrong Bergeron, the fake Brodeur, two zamboni drivers, a basketball player, and the Sedin brother who doesn't actually play hockey but is in fact an accountant.

If you could all throw the tomatoes BEFORE the wet sponges, that'd be much preferable:P

Am looking forward to defending my title. Never been able to say that - in anything Shocked

If you tell the computer it can optimise your drafting policy so That you also draft the wrong backstrom, a retired score keeper, Geordie Howe and a hot dog vendor, all whilst you tuck in to pizza and beer whilst rewatching reruns of due south

Bloody predictive BlackBerry! Yes, I meant gordie, though if you would like to draft his tyneside cousin, perhaps as a drunken enforcer, it can be arranged

Did my first mock draft last night. I have to do an autodraft which means a lot of buggering about with the ordering. But it's not bad for a first attempt.

Centers
Datsyuk
Spezza
Grabovski
Brassard

LW
Kovalchuk
Hartnell
Comeau

RW
Kessel
Parenteau

D
Subban
Whitney
Hamonic
Hamrlik

G
Rinne
Crawford
Bernier

No Savard, no Pronger, Phil bloody Kessel, a pair of Habs, and Scott Hartnell.

Epic fail!

On the upside though Leafy, there are a few Russians in there and no Niittymaki. That's a win-win in my book.

I love how my iPhone now recognizes most NHL players names and doesn't try to change the spelling. (I really should get out more). Although it did try and change Spezza to Sleaze, and it insists on US spelling for everything else.

I've tried three mock drafts now and everytime it won't bloody load! Luckily because I am hap day II my excellent pre-draft rankings have bagged me a stud team.

Lesson learnt. Leave it alone and it will work. Tinker with it, buff, and it will fail Very Happy

Right everyone, the date and time for the draft have been changed (and hopefully finalised) for...


Wednesday October 5th @ 9pm (BST)


This is to allow as many people as possible to attened the live draft.

Just to make it clear you can set the computer to 'auto-draft' for you if you are unable to make it in person. This is where Yahoo selects the highest undrafted player from a pre-determined list which you can edit here

Bollocks! Leafy's draft is on Monday and my predraft rankings have gone AWOL. Hmmm, methinks I could end up with a zamboni driver and the wrong Bergeron after all. Very Happy

hahahaha!

Anyway, I'm not such a techno-numpty as I thought. I've found my predraft rankings. Bet I still end up with a rubbish team though.
