For starters, if you are new to the league this year, e-mail me at with your LHH username and I will e-mail you a league invite. PS, I think it has to be a yahoo or gmail account or you won’t be able to join the league, so please send me and e-mail from 1 of one of those.

We have 15 teams, and those who are currently listed/projected in the league are:

Me/Zhora/Skeeterman/BaltimoreIslander/CC or Solace67/AP77/Sayvillelax94/FGS/TheOldBarn/Jbotte/Razorblade1214/NYIPHL/ and new to the league Judgegavel/newdamage/nyifan48.

Format will be head to head like last year on a week to week basis, with playoffs for the top 8 teams at the end of the year.

Probably keep the same roster positions ( C, C, LW, LW, RW, RW, D, D, D, D, G, BN, BN, BN, BN, IR, IR+ ) , especially goalies because of 2 starts per week issue, if anyone wants to change that mention it below and we’ll talk about it.

We will do a live draft again like last year. EVERYONE comment below on what weeknights or weekend afternoon/nights are best for you to do a live draft on next week (September 19th-25th we’ll do it 1 day), you can include preference but all availabilities are best. If you don’t respond, you will have not vote or voice here, so please do. Timer will be 30 seconds per pick again, so if we are missing anyone the draft doesn’t last forever and will keep picks moving better than a 1min timer.

There is a poll below on if we should change these stat categories from last year, 1 or any. Either way, I like having hits or another "odd" category as a curveball to the competition of sorts and the extra categories weakens already strong goalies a bit. Here are the head to head categories from last year we used, and if you win a category you get 1pt for the week, the most points for each weekly category win determines are standings (in other words, the best all around team should win "the presidents trophy"):

Goals (G), Assists (A), Plus/Minus (+/-), Powerplay Points (PPP), Shorthanded Points (SHP), Shots on Goal (SOG), Hits (HIT)

Wins (W), Goals Against (GA), Saves (SV), Shutouts (SHO)

Waiver wire is 3days for dropped players.

Trades are allowed, but if they are notably unfair or bad I will veto them based on the league members’ voting/response to them in comments section there or talk on here. It will take at least a few of those "very unfair trade" responses for that to happen. I don’t think any trades were vetoed last year and we had a handful of them or so.

I think I covered everything. If there is anything above you don’t like or would like to change, talk about it below and we’ll consider it as a community would and try and do it as judicially as possible. Thanks for joining! J
