Open Ice Fantasy Hockey: Draft Reminder, Last Chance

There's still a few more days to join the Open Ice Fantasy Hockey league. We're bigger and better than ever, but we've open spaces still. Preferably at least one other adventurous soul would like to join, so we'd have an even number of teams.

To join, go to http://hockey.fantasysports.yahoo.com/hockey.
Click the "Sign Up Now" or "Get Another Team" button and follow the links to "Join a Custom League". When prompted, enter the League ID# and password below:
League ID#: 9849
Password: nilson

For the people already in the league, the draft is scheduled for Thursday Sep 25 8:30pm MDT (for the math challenged, that's 10:30pm EDT). It shouldn't take more than an hour, and will be done using the Yahoo live draft tool.

If you cannot make it, Yahoo will use your pre-ranked player list to auto-draft your team. If you don't modify the ranking, it'll default to Yahoo's master list. I'd recommend you look at the list if you're going to rely on that, because not a lot of people agree with it (Dan Carcillo is highly ranked, for instance...).

Good luck and see you there.

  1. hmph.... bummer about the time change. saturday 2pm was supergood for me. thursday 830 blows. so i guess i'll do the rankings and the random selector will pick me a forward when i wanted a goalie etc. etc. and the screaming dobermans will suck.

    i just wanted this comment on record for when i'm totally not responsible for my team being crazy bad, and i lose interest entirely.... of course, if i *happen* to be winning, then i'll take full credit... :P

    i'm not sure i'm cut out for fantasy hockey. i like the straight up goals and assists type. ;)
