I am a Baseball Fantasy Fanatic, I dabble in football every once in awhile. I have never played fantasy hockey, but am looking to try it out this year... anyone got a opening?

wth is up with hockey? I'm not even sure a hold out hurts that league... the regular season is so long. Most casual fans just wait for the postseason to hope to spark some interest. I love hockey, don't get me wrong... but it is a night and day difference in the effort level from regular to playoff hockey(half the league gets in anyway... hard to get excited about). Precicely why I love Olympic hockey. I've seen some superhuman efforts in some of those games. DHasek when the Czech republic won it... made astounding plays. I'm not even sure if you can find it. 100 sands to the guy that has a good youtube vid of it.

All I could find was the shootout against Canada:


and the entire (all 2 hours and 21 minutes) Gold Medal Game. Complete with Czech commentary! :lol:

I'm in a league on ESPN.com and about half of the league needs filled. It's a keeper league, with a max of 5 keepers.

Here are the settings for the league.
http://games.espn.go.com/fhl/leaguesetu ... ueId=21933

If you cannot view it, it is a 10 team league, H2H points.
Starting Roster consists of:
2 C
2 LW
2 RW
4 D
2 UTIL
2 G

6 Bench Spots
3 IR Slots
Max Number of Postions are 4 per forward positions, 6 D-men, and 3 goaltenders.

Scoring Categories and Point totals
Skaters
Goal = 5
Assist = 3
Plus/Minus = 0.5
PIM (Penalty In Minutes) = 0.5
Power Play Goal = 1
Short Handed Goal = 2
Faceoffs Won = 0.2
Shots On Goal = 0.2
Hits = 0.3
Defenseman Points = 2.5 (Goal or Assist)

Goaltending Points
Win = 5
Loss = -3
Goals Against = -1
Saves = 0.3
Shutout = 3

Right now, we have one opening for sure, but I think half of the league has decided not to show up. The draft is set for Friday, January 18th @ 8pm ET.

I was thinking more of the more recent Czech gold, Hasek was like a spidermonkey blocking that shiz. Incredible.. you'd have to see it.

Oh, maybe it was 98.. I'm struggling to remember. Amazeballs as that character on New Girl would say. F'ing cracked out spider monkey saves.
