I am in, sir. Thanks for setting it up.

I'm in...any chance anyone with better organization skills than I might set up a H2H league as well?

posted by MeatSaber at 01:38 AM on September 08, 2009

I'm in -- I had to go here though.

I haven't played one before so (a) I will lose and (b) I wonder how much time this'll take?

Hey Rumple Everyone and anyone can win! Its not a big time consumer if you don't want it to be. Just have to keep an eye on players with a day off and fill in their spot from the bench. Simple eh? The draft itself probably takes around an hour but its a blast. I highly recommend being present for the draft but an auto drafter has won the Championship!

OK, Thanks to all who've joined already. Its filling up quickly! Here's a run down on the scoring rules and settings!

Roster Positions: C, C, LW, LW, RW, RW, D, D, D, D, G, G, BN, BN, BN, IR

Forwards/Defensemen Stat Categories: Goals (G), Assists (A), Plus/Minus (+/-), Penalty Minutes (PIM), Powerplay Points (PPP), Game-Winning Goals (GWG), Shots on Goal (SOG), Faceoffs Won (FW)

Goaltenders Stat Categories: Wins (W), Goals Against Average (GAA), Saves (SV), Shutouts (SHO)

These have pretty much been the rules for most of the Puckathons...

This is gonna rock! All The Best Paul

Thanks for setting this up skydivedad. I am in as The Medicine Hat Tricks.

posted by HATER 187 at 10:35 AM on September 08, 2009

skydivedad, I signed up. Now that you're gettin' it all set, just one Q for ya: are there max. games for players or positions?

posted by Spitztengle at 10:36 AM on September 08, 2009

What are we going with for the draft day?

posted by HATER 187 at 10:48 AM on September 08, 2009


Spitzengle that's max games per position as an example we have 2 LW Positions so the max games would be 164 in total for LW. This is something to watch throughout the season as running out of games can leave you falling rapidly in the standings as the season comes to an end.

It's great to have people joining. Big welcome to all including Qbert and Goddam who've been involved in the past. This is gonna be a blast.

Draft Day is set right now for Sat. 26th 10AM I would prefer Friday 25th at 6:30PM EST! I can change it let me know what works the best.


posted by skydivedad at 11:00 AM on September 08, 2009

sorry sdd but saturday 9/26 works better for me, i would have to do some major changing to my work schedule to be available 9/25

posted by HATER 187 at 11:28 AM on September 08, 2009

The Kentucky Cruisers are back and looking to improve upon their 12th place performance in Puckathon IV.

posted by MrFrisby at 12:04 PM on September 08, 2009

Thanks for setting this up, sdd. Saturday works best for me as well. I'm assuming that the "Draft Type" will move from Autopick to Live once we set a date?

posted by goddam at 12:24 PM on September 08, 2009

Yes will set it for Saturday than Sept. 26th 10AM EST. I'll set it to Live. Great Turnout so far, Thanks Gang, let's fill this league!

I've traced back the history of the Puckathon going back to it's 1st year 2002. You can review the leagues history on the leagues home page by using the drop down menu for Season: (on the right)

Check out past players and our Champions

Past Champions

2002 = Chewbacca Defence 169 Total Points (I have zero idea who that is as the managers name is hidden. Anyone know? I believe it was Grum's 1st Championship)
Commish = Academy of Lies (Name unknown, anyone?)

2003 = Arrogant Champs 112 Total Points (Again hidden manager name but I believe it might have been Grum once again)
Commish = Qbert

2004 = Can't find any data (Anyone know?)

2005 = Los Colecos 142 Points (Qbert )
Commish = Chico Bangs

2006 = Jagr is a Tranny (WeedyMcSmokey) 169 Points
Commish= Chico Bangs

2007 = BHawksDown 152.5 Points (Skydivedad)
Commish = Chico Bangs

Who's gonna run off with the 2009 Honors? Join Now and it could be you!

I'm in as the Granite Grinders (which is either a tribute to the Granite State of NH or a really bad sandwich). Wife has some sort of weird idea about a weekend in Ogunquit, ME, so I may have to go for an autodraft. It's either that or risking the wrath of the cook. Let me know how to set that up, since I'm a rookie GM.

posted by Howard_T at 01:52 PM on September 08, 2009

Hi Howard Glad you're on board. If you can't make the live draft Yahoo's autodraft feature kicks in automatically if your team hasn't signed in. It uses the Yahoo Player Rankings. The beast thing to do is use the player ranking feature and set up your own rankings instead of using the Yahoo. Make sure to rank at least the 1st 200 Players as you see it. Or just leave it and trust the Yahoo Machine. (Not Me)

Good Luck

2004 = Can't find any data (Anyone know?)

posted by skydivemom at 08:48 PM on September 08, 2009

Sweet We've got 12 slots filled so far in just a few days, Thanks Gang. We also have 2 former Champions (myself and Qbert) it would be great if we could get the other 2 (Grum and WeedyMcSmokey). The email address I have seems to have bounced or been lost somewhere in the Space of Cyber. If anyone could reach out to them I'd really appreciate it. Thanks

OK 8 spots left I'd really love to see this league full! So, invite your fellow Spofite.

As an aside the Draft is set for Sept 26th Saturday 10AM EST.

That is ALL...

It's awesome to have you on board and I always get a kick out of your team names but with the "Hamilton Crackberrys" you've showcased your sense of sarcasm. Well Done! Bravo...
OK 1 missing Champion Down and a Grum to go!



PS I hear Jagr is going to be back in the league this season. Does that still make a Tranny?

I havent done one of these before. I just ranked some players. I know I can only be there from the beginning for 30 minutes or so then have to leave for the day. Will it kick into automatic mode when I leave? Is it a chat room like thing? I guess I will find out -- if I mess up just give me ALL CANUCKS RAMPANT


posted by rumple at 11:10 PM on September 25, 2009

Yea rumple it will go auto when you close the java applet where the live draft occurs... Its fantastic to have a full 20 league! Thanks for joining. Good Luck and we'll see everyone 10AM EST Tomorrow...

gah, I forgot to do any rankings and then didn't wake up in time. Looks like I have a really, really weak team lol. Hopefully I can pick up some free agents and make some trades.

I should mention that my team name changed to the Theoretical Fleurys.
