Welcome back RGFHLers! Were on the cusp of September and you know what that means. I hope everyone had a safe and fun off-season, and trust that Fosten partied hard with his 2023-24 Championship all summer long :)

Yahoo Fantasy Hockey is live and the league has been renewed. We'll first do a roll call here to confirm all managers are back and proceed from there with establishing Keeper dates, draft start date and anything else we'd like to address. At the same time, the floor is open for any suggestions on scoring and roster tweaks, and other league related topics that anyone would like to discuss. I know some people view the Yahoo league message board first so i'll copy this over there too.

RGFHL Year 18 - 2023-2024 League Settings Review

Roster positions to draft:
3 C, 3 LW, 3 RW, 5 D, 1 Util, 2 G, 4 bench.
Miscellaenous positions:
1 IR position for IR players
1 IR+ position for day to day, and out type players.

Draft Order is the reverse of the final finish from last year.

Forwards/Defensemen Stat Categories:
Goals (G), Assists (A), Plus/Minus (+/-), Blocks (BLK), Powerplay Points (PPP), Shots on Goal (SOG), Hits (HIT)

Goaltenders Stat Categories:
Wins (W), Goals Against Average (GAA), Save Percentage (SV%), Saves (SV)

Housekeeping items:

1. Any suggestions for league settings changes (ie. scoring, roster size, etc) are welcomed.

2. Key NHL dates - Opening night: October 10, 2023, Regular season end: April 18, 2024

3. Key RGFHL dates - Keepers submission deadline: TBD, Fantasy draft start date on Draftime: TBD

4. Roll call - Confirmed returnee managers please check-in.

Re: 31 - Thanks Wolfer, sorry to see you go, and hope all is well.

Re: 32 - Yep i also noticed Draftime didn't have hockey ready. Left a reminder message on the submission form.

Now that we have at least one team vacancy confirmed (and within a short time potentially another, making two total), i think we should move forward to solidify the revamped scoring structure as i think everyone who has an opinion has already chimed in. This also makes any recruitment an easier sell with the new structure in place.

Based on broad overview (and sorry if i missed any anyone who shared something that directly opposes this) i think the below new scoring structure should widely appease. Unless there's suddenly strong opposition, i'll proceed and assume we can roll forward with the below for RGFHL 2023-24:

Skaters (8 categories): G, A, PPP, H, BK, SOG, PIM, GWG
Goalies (3 categories): W, Saves, SV%

- Switch +/- to GWG
- Adding PIM
- Removing GAA%

Iím totally against adding PIM and GWG.

Clearly unable to appease everyone, we can just take this to a vote then to let the majority win.

Goalie categories i believe can be set: W, Saves, SV%. Five skater categories have not been mentioned as possible cuts/switches, so those will be the core five: G, A, H, BK, SOG. And we'll vote on the last three from the available categories below to achieve 8. All league members can vote on any three of them and the three with the most votes are in. Ties im not sure how to handle. Maybe which of the tied stats a random player like William Nylander finished highest in the league in and that's the tiebreaker. 72 Hours vote period should be sufficient, as were up against the clock already. Voting closes Sept 21.

Voting (pick any three):

Penalty Minutes

Powerplay Goals
Powerplay Assists
Shorthanded Goals

Adding PIM+HIT+BLK is way too much violence.
Shorthanded Points is a random crapshoot.
More than 4 keepers anyone?

Plus/Minus (+/-)
Powerplay Points

I commish a re-draft league that is looking for owners. Plz join!

All of the extra categories have some flaw (fringe stat, random stat or duplicate a stat that we already have), so I will go with whatever the majority vote for.

That's shorthanded points. Don't think anyone would confuse that SHP for shooting percentage but I figure clarifying is worthy.

Also can't help but mention how impressive the GWG leaderboard looks but I think I'm a lost cause there.

We have 10 managers on-board and i'd like to make an attempt to recruit 1 or 2 more. We'll keep the window small (maybe 48-hours) and then roll right into announcing keepers and starting the draft.

@ CSF, Draftime now has Hockey available. Once we set in stone the mangers list you're welcomed to fire up the draft and handover at your convenience.

Post 36 says "the core five: G, A, H, BK, SOG. And we'll vote on the last three from the available categories below to achieve 8.Ē
Post 40 says "Skaters (9 categories): G, A, PPP, H, BK, SOG, PIM, +/-, SHPĒ
I believe it should say "Skaters (8 categories): G, A, PPP, H, BK, SOG, +/-, SHP"

Re: 51 - thanks for catching that. Yes you're right, i made a typo. The correct scoring categories should read:

Skaters (8 categories): G, A, PPP, H, BK, SOG, +/-, SHP
Goalies (3 categories): W, Saves, SV%

I'm not optimistic about our changes of wrangling 1 more (let alone 2) managers in the near future. Anyone who's already certain of their keepers and don't need to wait for the recruitment effort to finish is welcomed to share their keepers now. We'll set the keeper deadline as Sept 27th to allow us a good amount of time to start the draft right after and complete before puck drop.

Draftime is open. Check your emails for the draft access.

I have removed Wolfer.

If we get new managers i'll send them the draftime registration info.

Re: 55 - Thanks CSF. Dr. Doom also does not seem to be returning this year, so please remove him from Draftime as well if you haven't yet. I'll send another reminder via Yahoo for everyone to submit keepers as soon as possible, and we'll roll straight into starting the Draft.

Sorry for the delay. Dienasty's email said September 28th.

Fosten's Keepers
1) Elias Pettersson, C, Van
2) Jack Hughes, C, NJ
3) Jason Robertson, LW, Dal
4) Matthew Tkachuk, LW, Fla

Fosten's Top Cuts
Mitch Marner, Jack Eichel, Linus Ullmark, Charlie McAvoy, Adrian Kempe, John Norris, Filip Forsberg, Trevor Zegras, Cole Caufield

My gosh, that's alot of keeper-quality players to let go. Listening to any/all draft pick trade offers before the deadline!

I've added the keepers to Draftime and notified KKB to see if I can transfer the draft over to The Dienasty. Hopefully this can be done.

I've currently made The Dienasty Co-Admin so that I don't hold up the draft any longer. There's a $10 usd charge that needs to be paid before round 4.

Let me know when you want to start the draft. I can start it anytime.

Snake Draft Order with last years winner drafting 10th. (Doom and Wolfer removed)

Thanks CSF. I believe we can launch the draft now at Draftime, Iíll have a longer look at the admin controls there shortly as Iím running around a bit at the moment. Many thanks if you have been covering the $10 fee for us all these years, I had completely forgot there was such a thing to begin with. As Commish, Iíll take the duty of the payment this year via PayPal to get us rolling, and we can work out a more balanced way to do it going forward.

Fosten has just mentioned he knows someone who would like to join the league, and id like allow a short amount of time for the person to join, the more the merrier I say. Fosten, Iíve just emailed him a league invite and assuming it can be accepted in a timely manner, well allow Richard to join. Please remind him to claim one of the available roster in the recruitment post, and make his keepers available here. Then weíll need to add him over at Draftime and immediately start the draft. I donít think we can wait much more than 24 hours at this point as weíre really up against puck drop.

The Dynasty, looks like KKB transferred Admin control to you over at Draftime. One thing that needs to be updated is the draft order within draft. I had originally set it for 10 but it needs to be reset to 11 and hopefully Rick has joined.

He should be drafting in Dooms position since he claimed Doom's team. Between you and Filthy (6th)

Thanks, yes i see i now have Admin control of the league at Draftime, and i see Rick has joined. I have added his keepers to Draftime as well, but what i don't see is a live button that allows me to change the draft order. I've emailed Draftime (KKB) in hopes of it being sorted asap.

Ok, the draft order is now set. I had to re-enter all keeper picks as something cleared all the previous entries when the set draft order issue was fixed. Taxman has graciously offered to help enter picks into Yahoo as they come in, to allow us to have an up to date reference of picked/available players. And with that... We are underway!

Taxman, you are on the clock.

Hope everyone has a good draft, and please keep me posted if any issues arise via a message here (I'll be checking daily), or an email via the Yahoo Fantasy page.
