    Fantasy Hockey League?

    I was thinking about making a RedsZone league.

    We had one last year but only hand 5 or 6 teams and only a few managers were active troughout.

    Would there be more interest this season? If so, I'd be pelased to get one going.

    I'll join again. But with at least 8 teams.

    That's 3, and I could probably get my brother to join, so 4.

    4 more people interested? Or I'm not going to bother.

    I was in last year. I agree, only 6 of the 8 were active all year long.

    I'll be in again. We should be able to get a few more. When should the draft be?

    I was terrible at it last year, does that count as inactive?

    Don't think that counts. AK, if you can set up the league post the info on this thread. We should be able to get 8-10. Need to decide categories and draft date.

    As one of the few remaining hockey fans in the US, I feel obligated to join. So I'm in.

    That is 5 people in so far. Hopefully we can get more within a few weeks.

    I think settings are a bit odd - I like the center/lw/rw positions better. Also, can we have this draft during the week? Saturday night is not a good night for me.

    I also like it a little better w/actual positions (RW/C/LW) as opposed to just "Forward"

    Another stat I am not wild about is the GWG. In theory, it's a fine stat, but a common complaint I saw in a league I was in a couple years back was that, if Buffalo (for example) wins 7-2, and Derek Roy happened to score that 3rd goal, he'd get credit for a GWG. It seemed kind of lame to me, but if no one else has a problem with it, I'm fine with it. I can't think of another stat I would rather have than GWG that we don't already have.

    I agree with you Stewie, but I like to have lots of categories, and there are just limited options.

    I'll change the forward positions at some point.
