    As I mentioned earlier, I am starting another league with a few of my non-Pistons Forum friends (isn't odd there are still people like that out there?). I will have 2-4 empty manager spots left to fill. If you're interested drop me a PM, and I'll shoot you the info.

    It's on ESPN.com.
    Keeper league (looking for those willing to commit to multiple years)
    8 teams
    8 forwards (I hate when players that play C, are listed as LW - keeping track of faceoffs won should keep us honest here)
    4 d
    2 util
    2 G
    8 bench
    2 IR
    Live draft (9/28 10am)
    As it stands right now I'm thinking you get to keep 12 guys from this year's roster for next season.
    Head to Head
    Line up changes are the default (haven't determined if it's weekly or daily)
    No salary cap (that I know of)
    There is a maximum number of total games your forwards can play each week and I can change that number if I see the need.
    I've included blocked shots and hits as categories. No PIM.
    The scoring is based on total points I suspect, instead of # of categories won. Not 100% on this.

    I have the league set up and Red Line is going over the settings. I've never done a keeper league or played on ESPN before, but I wanted a keeper league, and that is where I ended up. I can tweak the rules at the end of each season as needed.

    Nobody?

    No one wants to play in a keeper league?

    I'm burned out on fantasy, trying to cut back myself.

    Will you be angry if I only play one season?

    I'm finding it harder and harder to find the time for fantasy sports. I used to be in 2 or 3 leagues for each sport, but I've now cut back to only 1 of each.

    I've considered/tried going cold turkey, but just haven't found the willpower yet.

    Sorry man.

    Nah I understand. I was going to do just one league of each myself. But had outside pressure to do a second hockey league.

    Last year I was in 3 football and 2 hockey leagues. It's too much.

    This year is looking like 2 hockey and 1 football.

    I'm not trying to pressure anyone, just rattle the cage.

    I can run a league with 4 people, I just don't know how much fun it'll be. I'm not sure if ESPN will let you make it public once you have your 4 in there.

    No worries. I'll figure it out.

    I know very little about NHL players, so one hockey league for me is more than enough.
