Our keeper league is looking for 2 new GMs this summer. Below is the league info straight from the site. Sorry in advancde if it's a bit long-winded. Please message me if interested.
This is a points-only head-to-head keeper league with daily rosters. The league is split into two divisions of five teams each.
We use CBS Sports (cbssports.com) as our official fantasy hockey site.
$30 per team (due by the day of the fall entry draft). Dues are collected via PayPal.
This is a keeper league. At the end of each season, you will protect:
Protected player lists are required to be turned in by each team manager before the fall entry draft.
We use Forward (F) instead of individual C, RW & LW positions to simplify team management. Players are only available in their primary position based on the start of the season. If they start the season as a forward, they remain a forward all season. Burns and Byfuglien are prime examples. They will both be playing forward at the beginning of the 2014/2015 season and thus will remain so all season in our league.
Forwards and Defensemen
Goal - 1 point
Assist - 1 point
Power Play Goal - 1 point
Game Winning Goal - 1 point
Short Handed Goal - 2 points
Win - 2 points (Shootout wins still count as a win)
Shootout Loss (or Tie) - 1 point
Shutout - 5 points (you also get 2 points for the win, so 7 points total for a shutout)
All points scored by the 17 players on your active roster will count toward your total points accumulated for each game. No points are awarded to forwards or defensemen during shootouts but goalies will get points for a shootout win or loss.
(Note: Goalies will be scored same as forwards and defenseman if they get score goals or assists.)
During the season, each team must consist of 17 players as detailed below:
We use daily rosters, so you can make roster changes every day up until 5 minutes prior to the start of the first game of the day. Any roster moves after that time will be reflected on the next day’s roster.
The Entry Draft:
We hold our entry draft in September. The order of the picks will be determined by teams finish in the previous season’s standings based on total # of wins per team. Last place picks first and so on.
The draft order only changes for the following:
Playoff Finals runner-up – Picks 7th
Division winner #1 (based on regular season # of wins) – Picks 8th
Division winner #1 (based on regular season # of wins) – Picks 9th
League Champion – Picks 10th
If a division winner also wins the league championship, they obviously fall to last pick in the draft order.
Each team will enter the draft with the following:
At the completion of the entry draft, each team must consist the following:
No trades are allowed during the draft. You may make trades for players and/or picks from the end of the previous season’s playoffs up until we turn in our protected player lists (usually in August). All rosters are then frozen until the entry draft.
Once the draft is completed, you may make add/drops for free agents if you’re unhappy with any choices you made. Full transaction rules are listed below.
Roster Moves and Transactions:
Free Agent Add/Drops:
Free agent acquisitions (non-drafted players not currently on any active team’s roster) are available on a first come first served basis. You are allowed unlimited free agent add/drops up until 5 minutes prior to the start of the first game of the day. Add/drops after that time will be reflected on the next day’s roster. We don’t employ any waivers, so if you drop a player, they immediately become available to all teams. Make sure to remember this before making any transactions if you’re considering an add/drop involving a player you may regret dropping.
Add/drops are allowed during the regular season until the end of the regular season. Any teams that fail to make the playoffs are frozen at the end of the league’s regular season and are not allowed to make any add/drops until after the fall entry draft. For playoff teams, add/drops are only allowed if a roster player is injured and moved to IR in the early rounds. No add/drops are allowed at all from the beginning of the final round of the playoffs until after the entry draft in the fall.
Trades are allowed involving current roster players and future draft picks. Final approval of all trades is made by the league commissioner. If a deal is questionable, the league commissioner will contact both team managers to discuss and resolve the issue. This might result in proposing an alteration to balance the trade or a flat-out rejection of the trade if deemed unfair.
Trades are allowed all season until the trade deadline (usually sometime in February). No trades are allowed from the trade deadline until the end of the league playoffs. Trades are allowed to resume after the end of the previous season’s playoffs up until we turn in our protected player lists (usually in August). All rosters are then frozen until the entry draft.
Trading of future draft picks is allowed (same rules apply as with players), but please be mindful that once you give them away, they’re gone. This will have an impact on your future drafts, so make sure that if you’re going to trade them, get your full value out of them.
Injured Reserve (IR):
All teams have three (3) injured reserved roster spots. A player MUST be injured to occupy an IR slot and must be off IR and back on your active roster within 48 hours of the player returning to action. Failure to follow this rule will result in the league commissioner adjusting your rosters for you. This will usually result in your weakest player in that position being dropped from your team. The league commissioner will contact you with a warning to fix the issue before this would occur. Attempting to "stash" players on IR to avoid dropping them is not allowed and all IR rosters are monitored by the league commissioner for compliance.
(Note: Teams must drop players when add/drops, trades or IR moves put your active roster over 17 players. Please do this as soon as possible once your transaction is completed.)
8 of the 10 teams make the playoffs. Total # of wins per team will decide the division winners as well as the playoff order. The league commissioner will decide the outcome if a tie were to occur.
No trades are allowed from the trade deadline until the end of the league playoffs. Add/drops are only allowed if a roster player is injured and moved to IR in the early playoff rounds. No add/drops are allowed at all for the final round of the playoffs (the league championship).
10 teams @ $30 entry fee per team = $300. CBS Sports costs $100 per season and this comes out of the pot before any payouts. The remaining money is paid out as follows:
League Champion: $100
Division Winners: $50 each
