Hello, and welcome to the fantasy hockey thread for the 2018-19 NHL season. If you edit your starting lineup for an entire season you too can be a Goon Champion.

Websites to Play On:
Yahoo! Sports: http://hockey.fantasysports.yahoo.com/
ESPN: http://games.espn.go.com/frontpage/hockey
CBC: http://hockeypool.cbc.ca/cbc/hnicp12/notice
CBS: http://fantasynews.cbssports.com/fantasyhockey

I think almost everyone uses Yahoo for their leagues.

You can also play daily fantasy leagues on the sites that have commercials all over TV (DraftKings, FanDuel, probably some other ones). We'll talk about a Goon money league again this year and probably not do it.

Four spots (at least) in the LSL to get us back to 20. 2 in the HHL (at least) to get us to 16.

I sent invites out for both leagues, so you have to accept if them if you want back in!

10/1 LSL draft is not good for me, but if it's best for everyone else I will make due. I can do almost any weeknight (preferably 8pm so I can get the kids down); just not the 1st.

I'm in LSL again, probably just gonna be lazy and stick with Hot Dog Police because gently caress coming up with a new name. Weeknights are best, I could manage weekends if needed though my only 100% absolute no-go date is the 23rd of Sep.

If LOLHL is still a thing i'll probably do that one too.

don't worry about the keeper thing in the LSL, ignore it.

I won't send HHL invites to new folks until I figure out which managers aren't coming back.

Plenty of spots in the LSL, so let me know if you want to join that.

If the season/post season was still in progress I think so yeah. Anyone who was on your final roster should be eligible as long as they comply with the other keeper rules.

I joined LSL! I have been playing ROTO fantasy baseball vociferously for years but have never done H2H and have not done hockey in a long time. But I will do my best! How many keepers?

Also, I have the best team name so far!

Also, curiously, in the league I commish for baseball, I don't think I set it to keeper league before I started - is there a way to make a keeper league anyway? That option doesn't seem to be there any longer

Playoffs are no big deal,
don't have a crap attack.


I usually avoid taking rookies, especially high profile ones, because people take them way too soon. But what is everyone's thoughts on Dahlin this year? I am finding it difficult to project for him. He's a better prospect than Doughty and Hedman, but they weren't superstars in their rookie year.

e: Just went to H-R and pulled all the rookie teen defensemen who have scored 30 or more points. The active ones include Johnson (33), Del Zotto (37), Ekblad (39), Fowler (40), Werenski (47), and Myers (48). All of these guys were 1st round picks, but none of them were as highly regarded as Dahlin. Basically, the odds are against Dahlin, but we also haven't seen a defensive prospect of his caliber in...I am not sure. A while.

Is there a bigger disappointment than Myers? Forgot his rookie season.

I would be very surprised if Dahlin didn't put up 45-55 pts. I could see him having a year similar to Ekblad's rookie season.

LSL isn't a keeper league. Dunno why it asks about keepers every year but it always does for some reason.

T-Bone
Sep 14, 2004



HHL and LSL both have hits/blocks so I don't value him too highly there but if you're in a normal G/A league he could be a solid pickup, the problem is that everyone knows him which probably drives up his draft spot.
