2nd Annual Fantasy Hockey League

Last year was a blast, let's do it again.

- Weekly, head-to-head format again this year. 
- Live draft Tuesday Oct 3 @ 900 PM EST

- 5-cigar buy in.  Payouts TBD based on league size.
- Must be on the good traders list to participate. 

- Since I had an issue last season with 2 newer members disappearing towards the end of the league and never paying up at the end of the season .... "newer members" need to send their 5-cigar buy-in to me before the live draft in order to participate.   
- If your "forum join date" is between April 1, 2017 and now, you must send your 5-cigar buy-in to me before the draft.  I'll keep your "buy-in" safely tucked away in my humidor for the duration of the season, and send your buy-in directly to the winner at the end of the league.

- Also, I'll be making slight adjustments to the scoring categories this year, especially for goalies, based on feedback from last season.

    I didn't have the time to really play last year, and I don't see this year being any better. Please remove me until the finals.

    adjusted scoring settings for this season.

    hope it will make things "more balanced" and give some added emphasis to defensemen.

    We're at 7 teams, assuming @MikeTodd ; & @Bigshizza ; are playing again. 
    Need an even number for the league .... anyone else interested?

    (If no one else signs up, my wife says she'll play to fill out the final spot if needed.)

    What kind of sticks are we wagering? Everyday sticks or is it premium stuff?
  • HeavysetrapierHeavysetrapier New Orleans, LAPosts: 253 ✭✭✭
    I would like in as long as the buy-in is not premium stuff. I am one of these newer members so I can send out my buyin tomorrow. Pm me the addy plz. 
  • jgibvjgibv John G.Posts: 8,968 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Ok shizz is out....

    heavysetrapier you are in bro....I see you've been here since June....have you done some trades already? 

    Buy in is 5 nice cigars....doesn't have to be super premium (opus, davidoff, etc) but please no "budget bin" quorums, Gurkhas, etc.
    check out what some of the guys sent last time around to get an idea .... https://forum.cigar.com/discussion/897323/gauging-interest-fantasy-hockey-league/p1 ... Most were way over the top, but you get a flavor for what was tossed around last year.

  • HeavysetrapierHeavysetrapier New Orleans, LAPosts: 253 ✭✭✭
    So now I'm confused because all my guys have games listed this week. Does the season start this week or next week?
  • CharlieHeisCharlieHeis South DakotaPosts: 4,318 ✭✭✭✭✭
