    Default Starting my first Dynasty League - Any Feedback Appreciated

    My friends and I are finally making the jump from annual one-year leagues to start a dynasty league. I would just like to get some feedback on the settings that we have come up with:

    Your league is actually pretty similar to the one in my sig. For this amount of categories you'll need a dedicated and knowledgeable group. Doesn't take much for a few to get discouraged and fall off the wagon.

    Personally I love having a lot of categories but it's not for everyone.

    I know most of the guys are very knowledgeable and everyone seems to be dedicated to it. I started rallying the troops now to make sure I had 15 others who are dedicated for the long-haul. I plan on running the settings by everyone to make sure we are all in agreement, so I have time to find replacements if needed.

    Good setup. A couple of ideas / suggestions for thought.

    I'd maybe cut out SO ( It's more of a random cat ) and go with four goalie cats. Maybe add TOI instead. Also think about putting H+B together in one cat. Just a few ideas for thought.

    Thanks for the ideas! TOI was already shot down by some of the GM's, but I'll run the others by them.

    I also hate random categories, I'd also suggest considering to drop shut outs and just going with the four goalie categories.

    I've also never been that much of a fan of +/-; it's such a garbage statistic.

    If the goal is to have categories to represent all facets of the games, you could consider SH TOI (SHP is also too random, and produces too many ties).

    Good luck.

    Question related to this league, if anyone can answer:

    Can I do a rookie/minor league draft after the main draft? Or not until the following season?

    Sure, why not? You can have it any way you want as long as you make it clear who is eligible for which draft.

    I see absolutely no issues with having two drafts (i.e. a main draft where existing players are eligible and a separate rookie draft).

    As strange as this might sound, I joined a league that is only one year old that did this, 24 teams, and they held a lottery to determine draft order. And naturally, the same team won BOTH lotteries. haha. Some people were bitter about that, but nobody really considered the implications of having two lotteries when they started off this league.

    Set random order for pro draft and use the reverse order for the prospect draft.

    If your guys are willing to discuss categories, I would drop Shutouts (low volume stat) and Plus/Minus (garbage stat that has more to do with their team than their individual play) and change PPP to Short-Handed Points (Fantrax has this option).

    I think it looks like a fantastic setup for a dynasty league; however, I have one bit of advice: I would replace +/- (garbage statistic in analyzing individual players) with something like FW. Predictable, fair, and it helps to bring the relative value of Centers closer to that of Wingers. It seems like more and more leagues are starting to use FW as a default statistic these days ... and I like it.

    I like +/- as a category.
    It's not a fluke that the top five all-time NHLers in +/- are:
    Top 5: Career high

    Larry Robinson, career, +730
    Bobby Orr, career, +597
    Ray Bourque, career, +528
    Wayne Gretzky, career, +518
    Bobby Clarke, career, +506

    Nicklas Lidstrom was a PLUS guy for every year but one of his career.

    Without +/-, Patrice Bergeron has similar fantasy value to Ryan Johansen or Eric Staal... and much less value than a guy like Tyler Seguin or Taylor Hall.
    Now, there's a reason Team Canada selected Bergeron and not Johansen or Staal or Seguin or Hall... and that reason's name is Plus/Minus.

    Include it! My 2 cents.
