    Real Fantasy- Draft

    Three weeks between picks and the guys we are looking at are all still available? We could go a number of different directions here but it's hard to pass up a solid two way all-situations center who will check and annoy the opposition to no end. His 30 goal season was a fluke but he's a solid...

    I'm not sure. It could cause a headache in trying to track everything as picks get skipped.

    Eh they would have found some way to have 25 teams instead. :)

    That's fucking garbage. So those 70 games meant nothing? What the fuck is wrong with this league?

    I'm sure being teams 23 and 24 in the standings is purely a coincidence. :) Edit: It would make more sense IMO to add two more WCs in each conference for a total of four and have them play each other in a single game format to settle on WC1 and WC2. The only team that gets harmed in that...

    Pretty sure the only requirement is a signed NHL contract so no Alex Lafreniere.

    I can understand why this guy slipped as he is having an off year by his standards most certainly due to the back injury caused by a Bortuzzo cheap shot. But he's only 27 and a proven 30 goal scorer and should bounce back once fully healthy. And a sweet contract as well (4 more years at $4.25M)...

    Sorry Nap, Dummy Hoy picked him in the third round.

    Real Fantasy- Draft

    Checks first page of thread. Checks again. Checks last couple of pages of thread. Checks again. Wait no one took this guy? I was debating whether to fill out second line, start third line or fill out second pair. But you guys made the decision easy for me. Continuing the buildup of the best...

    So much for my secret ingredient for RW2. Nice pick. And sorry PSK, I needed a cheap and effective goalie. :)

    Real Fantasy- Draft

    Wow the pace really picked up. Nice job with the Klingberg and Rust picks especially - we had them both on our target list. With those options gone, it's time to set up our goaltending. Our selection has posted a career .918 save percentage and 2.46 GAA to date while playing for middling to...

    Real Fantasy- Draft

    Kind of surprised this guy was available. A very good two way center who scored 30 goals last season and was on his way to another 30 goal season before a season ending injury. He slots in nicely as my second center bumping Forsberg to the wing but allows me the option to drop either to third...

    Hank Steinbrenner dead at 63

    I wouldn't necessarily assume that. Depending on how their agreement is structured there could be a call option in favor of the two siblings to buy from Hank's estate or it could simply pass to Hank's children. My guess is that the option exists but that's not going to be cheap.

    I guess you could question it. Especially if you have no intention of actually, you know, playing defense. :)
