    For the amount of time you spent doing this you should have attached names and asked for fantasy advice.

    My biggest pet peeve is in the trade section. Be specific with titles, people.

    This is good: Nash + Perry for E. Kane + Burns

    Tells me everything I need to know and whether I want to weigh in and help.

    This is bad: Is this a good deal for me?

    I always want to say no without even reading the original post.

    There are times when half of the posts in the trade section are generic titles. It doesn't want me to click on them at all.
    12-team Keeper pool, straight points for forwards & dmen. Goalies get: 2 points per win, 3 per shutout, 1 point per assist & 1 point per shootout loss.

    League champ in 2013 and 2015.

    Top 8 forwards, 5 dmen and 2 goalies count.

    We keep 15 players (any position) plus two rookies.

    Forwards: Malkin, Ovechkin, Kessel, Pavelski, Little, Benn, Iginla, Foligno, Kesler, Viraten
    Defence: Letang, Carlson, Shattenkirk, Yandle, Streit, Gostisbehere
    Goalies: Price, Fleury

    Another pet peeve of mine:

    A question such as "Should I trade Zetterberg for Bobby Ryan in a points pool" might get four or five replies, but a question like "Should I trade Crosby for Emelin and two second rounders" will get 50 replies.

    One of my biggest pet peeves is people who don't know how to use the search option to look up questions before they bother to ask.

    For example, every year its the same thing around early summer. Who do I draft at 2? Seriously, how many draft threads were there on the boards? Go read them, you will see who everyone likes at 1,2,3.. and so on and so on...

    A popular one this summer was.. MacKinnon or Drouin? Ugh!!


    Seriously people, use the search option before asking a question that has probably been asked, and answered about 10 times in 10 different threads.


    Seriously!!!

    Opening a thread to see that it's a dissertation instead of a simple, short, to the point question. If I see that it's a long sucker, I usually hit the back button.
