It's basically punishment for having guys who are worthy enough to play every single game.

Im pretty sure leagues like that set up for 82 games per playable roster spot(when playable = active and non-playable = IR or Bench), but yeah its still stupid.

I always thought leagues like that involved too much micromanaging. If I'm complaining about micromanaging....yeah, stupid.

Is that the Yahoo Pittsburgh Penguins League? If so, I'm in that one. It is quite frustrating, but I understand the need to keep the playing filed somewhat leveled in that regard. You would think the games played numbers would be higher though based on the length of the season.

Its not confirmed if either is starting yet, but if they both do, Khudobin vs Buffalo over Quick vs Anaheim is a no brainer, right?

Quick and Lehtonen are obvious keepers, but its looking like Khudobin might be a keeper over Lehner this offseason.

I will be upset if he cements himself as a keeper. I held him for 2 months on IR after keeping as an expiring rookie.

Bishop vs. OTT
Bov vs. PHI
Lundy vs. STL

Pick 2.

I went with Bish and Bob pretty easily, though Lundqvist has finally been playing well lately. I'm a sucker for against-former-team games.

Thankfully they re-signed Zatkoff for two more years, so, hurrah! If only.

I continue my streak of selecting the wrong goalie every day. Fortunately no goalies are playing today. :pop:

It'd be nice if Vancouver and LA were capable of scoring more than one goal per game. Maybe I'll try to swing one of them for Fleury so I can get more wins.

C: Eric Staal, Anze Kopitar

LW: James Neal, Evander Kane

RW: Phil Kessel, Johan Franzen

D: Drew Doughty, Niklas Kronwall, Oliver Ekman-Larsson, James Wisniewski

G: Jonas Hiller, Niklas Backstrom

Utility: Patrick Sharp

Bench: Paul Stastny, Tyson Barrie, David Clarkson, Jonathan Bernier


Those are two tough rounds to miss. As a result you don't have stud goaltender to offset the lack of a stud forward. But if Staal has a bounce back year and Kessel lights it up, and if Minnesota is strong this year, and if Hiller or Bernier maintains a chokehold on the #1 job... just a lot of ifs.


Updated - moving up the standings thanks to some strong GM skills. (actually, i'm in a league that has a couple of teams that do not know what they are doing)

Out: Paul Stastny, Tyson Barrie, David Clarkson, Johan Franzen, James Wisniewski, Niklas Backstrom,

In: Jamie Benn, Kyle Okposo, Erik Johnson, Kris Letang, Matt Niskanen, Jussi Jokinen, Chris Kreider

I also had Martin Jones for a chunk of his run, and I've waived/resigned Jokinen like 4 times already haha. Also, someone in our league cut Letang, instead of just putting him on IR.

Uh, I forgot to update my lineups early today and left Iginla on the bench in ALL my leagues today! 2g, 2a + PP so far down the drain!

Perhaps I had a bit of foreshadowing by not checking my lineup, but I left Henrik Lundqvist on my bench today :pop:

I agree, columbus' offense is so worthless they cant even get a halfway decent number of shots off to get me a good sv%. Ill take the win though.
