Let the Trash Talking Commence

Filed in fantasy 1 comments

This year we’re having a Red Wings bloggers/Twitterers fantasy hockey league.  The winner will receive bragging rights and the Brett Lebda Achievement Award in the Field of Excellence (the exact award is yet to be determined).

The one stipulation was that everyone had to exclude Crosby, so no one was allowed to draft him.  Serven, of course, drafted him anyway as his last pick, just so that he would waive him.  Unbeknownst, only the commissioner of the league can do that, since he’s undroppable.

Here’s who’s in the league:

Saler – On the Wings
Tyler – The Triple Deke
Kris – Snipe Snipe, Dangle Dangle
Petrella – The Production Line
Hollis – The Production Line
Discher – The Production Line
Casey – Winging It in Motown
Joe Burkel – Red Wings Guy
Serven – @RedWingsFeed
Liz – Chicks Who Give A Puck
Andy – Fight Night at the Joe
Graham – Hole in the Door
George – The Malik Report
Jen – @jennyquarx
Andrew Tomlinson – On Frozen Blog
…and myself.

We’re scoring based on G, A, +/-, PIM, PPG, PPA, SHP, GWG, SOG, SH%, and Hits.  Goalies will be based on W, GAA, SV% and Shutouts.

This was, I have to admit, one of the stranger fantasy drafts that I’ve partaken in.  But I’m pretty happy with my team, even though I had to throw what little strategy I had out the window from the get-go.  My defense is where it’s really lacking–I neglected it far too long and ended up with some pretty mediocre options.
