    I agree. Always wanted to catch a game in Chicago. Hope I get his box.

    Man.. Brunner's shootout goal last night should have gotten me 3 million fantasy points. Instead all I get is the SportsCenter top play.

    Any reason why power play points count but not short handed?
     
  6. chrisp450

    chrisp450 Oct 23, 2012 Minnesota

    Short handed will just count as standard goals/assists. Didn't want to have too many more categories. I lumped PP points together, rather than goals and assists just for that reason.

    I think the Shots on Goal stat is the most useless stat. Should be removed if possible.

    Yeah it probably is... I'm not gonna change things now though, since everyone drafted based on the categories.

    I might be willing to revoke my "no selling to rival fans", if the person is a BA I like.

    Oh, and I looked at my bottle and I guess it is Cuvee St.-Gilloise and not Cuvee des Champions. Just so there isn't confusion.

    What's the difference Duffman?

    Looks like different type/amount of hop used based on year.

    Yeah, it was difficult piecing the draft order together, and honestly I don't even remember.

    Mine is easy... I think you are all smart enough to figure it out :)

    Mine is pretty easy too. I'm a Hawks fan.

    I will be back in June for 10 days doing fun things and then getting our wedding certificate. TBD if I will be coming back to Chicago after my 2 weeks in Spain/Italy or if I will be starting a new contract in Germany.

    fair enough i'll be on my way back to MN around then but shoot me a BM and we'll maybe grab a drink.

    Yo merc! Can you slow your team down just a little bit and give the rest of us a shot? Also, can someone in Texas kick Jamie Benn in his stupid ass and sign a contract already... I could really use that.

    Benn and Subban are just hanging out drinking beer right now. Assholes.

    My goaltenders did a great job of that....everytime one of them plays, they end up giving up 5 goals.

    Yeah, well, your team's defense sucks, so they aren't helping me out much!

    Dammit Duffman! You done stole Fasth! I woke up this morning with so much confidence switching my goaltenders to just have my dreams crushed. I hope I don't regret not switching last night.

    I think about 70% of my team is under performing! Bad start lol but it also doesnt help when recently my bench has been outscoring my starters... gotta work on my GM skills

    You're not switching them out every day?

    I use the "Start Active Players" feature under lineup tools on the full web page. It's nice that you can set your lineup weeks in advance.

    I do switch them every day... I just happen to choose the wrong guys to put out there on days where most of my team has games apparently... which is why I am blaming my GM skills here
