The Lighthouse Fantasy Dream Season, pt 1

The Setup

Using the rosters as picked by Mark and Keith in this post, I created 2 teams in Strat-o-matic Hockey 2011, using the cards produced from last year’s data, the latest data available.

For those of you not familiar with Strat, players are rated for exact positions (LW or RW vs. just W; LD or RD vs. just D), but many players are rated for multiple positions based on what they played the previous season.

They also get a GP rating based on the number of games played, but that is editable. I edited all 21 players to be available 100% of the time. I also turned of injuries. Goalie fatigue was left on.

I decided to run an 82 game season, with each team playing at ‘home’ 41 times. The games were on consecutive days to force some semblance of a goalie rotation. I used standard NHL rules with a 4-on-4 5 minute OT followed by a shootout in case of ties.



The starting lines:

The Dream Season

The teams were set to be managed by the computer using those lines. All games were completed by Auto-Play with no human interaction. To keep some semblance of balance between getting it done quickly and to shamelessly whore for page views provide some level of detail and drama, I broke the season up into 10 game chunks, except for chunks 4 and 8 which had 11 games.

Games 1 – 10
