Id play, but ive never played a yahoo fantasy game before so i might just get on everybodies nerves being a noob.

The fantasy soccer game i play you just get 100 mil and pick a team at the start of the season using any EPL players and you can just keep that team for the entire season, transfers are just optional.

If you need another guy, I'll play. My last fantasy hockey league I got screwed. I tied with the league commisioner and lost in the 2nd round because he got the lucky tie breaker, which was some random stupid category like shots on goal or whatever...

Is there room for one more? If so I'll play.

There should be room, default league size is 12. If more than 16-18 want to play, we just make 2 separate leagues.

I've put an "interest list" into the first post, so far we've got 8 people interested which to me is enough to get a league going once registration opens, with room for 4 more people in one league. If we have 13-15 I'll probably do a 12-person league and have those extra people on a wait list if someone drops out, if we get to 16-24 I'll probably go ahead and make 2 leagues. If we do that I'd like to keep the sizes of both leagues about equal, that'll probably be more fair.

Also, depending on what the default Yahoo scoring is I'll be open to changing a couple of the scoring categories-2 initial ideas I have are drop +/- in favor of Short Handed Points and drop Shutouts in favor of Saves.

I agree with drop shutouts in favor of saves, but i'd keep plus-minus over short handed points, and i'm sure we will substitute other catagories once we are ready for league registration.

As noted before I'm open to some changes and in a few days will make a couple proposals on changing scoring categories for the league to vote on. I'm also flexible on draft time, I just wanted to quickly grab a good weekend time so we can be drafted and take care of waivers in time for the season.

Update: The game is now temporarily unaccessible. They've reverted to the "Registration begins soon" screen and I can't access any of my teams & leagues. I'll keep everyone posted, but as of this post you can't register. Apologies for the inconvenience, this is something out of my control.

Yeah i was wondering what was going on.Just bump this or send me a PM when its setup..You should use espn it has all the live updates and scoring for free instead of having to pay the $11 bucks for the stattracker.if your live drafting i can do it on a saturday but id rather do it sometime in the afternoon between 2-4PM..if not its cool i'll rank my players..Hockey its a littler bit deeper on the waivers than a football league anyways.Andi prefer H2H but its cool either way i dont mind..im just ready for some hockey.

Latest word is registration now will open in early September. When it does we'll try again! Hopefully that'll be next week.

OK, let's try this again...registration is now OPEN. Take 2. To the 2 other people who apparently were able to register the first time, please double-check to see if you're still in the league as apparently everything is still there and you shouldn't need to re-register.

I'm not in this, I'm in a ESPN keeper league this year but i've done the yahoo one for like 6 years and i think the best stats are

G A Plus/minus Pims PPP PPG PPA GWG

GAA W SO SAVE %

We added PPA to take some of the sting off of having 2 great goalies.

Fun no matter how you do it.

Some recomendations sleepers for points and pims
