    Default 2017/18 Dobber Expert - Stanley League

    Welcome to the Dobber Expert Stanley!

    This thread is created to enable managers (and even some non-managers) to chat about the league in general, the draft, teams and even smack talk.

    The one request is that any league questions/issues remain on the league board.

    A reminder of the settings:

    Yahoo, One-year, Rotisserie
    Daily lineups, Weekly FAAB w/ Continual rolling list tiebreak
    No maximum moves/trades, Same day processing
    G,A,+/-,PPP,SOG,Hits,W,GAA,SV
    4C,4L,4R,6D,2G,5BN,2IR,1IR+


    The live draft is set for Thursday, September 28th at 8pm Eastern.

    Here is the draft order (team names to be updated when required):

    1 - duntroon68 (Yellow Dogs)
    2 - LordoftheRinks (Lord of the Rinks)
    3 - The Comish (The Comish)
    4 - temek (Last Resort)
    5 - rooneypoo (The Jobbers)
    6 - holypuck (Mark's Team)
    7 - PensInThree (Maroons)
    8 - lowblocker (Mario's Team)
    9 - Johner (The Eh Team)
    10 - horrorfan (Hanz Labyrinth)
    11 - TheNugeCooge (BusinessInTheFront)
    12 - jcairns (Beavers)

    Draft results will be posted and I encourage managers to share their thoughts post-draft and throughout the season.

    Good luck and have fun!

    Draft results here (not split by rounds but you can figure it out )

    Surely he's had some bad luck with injuries...but I don't recall him finishing lower than first in any of the pools I've seen him in!

    10th - not bad spot to draft. Hope the strategy works out!

    Oof, 12th. Could be interesting - but I lack experience here. I usually find myself in the 8-9th range in drafts, it seems.

    12th is a sweet spot - you're sitting pretty on getting 2 impact players and really being able to drive your strategy. Personally, I'd prefer drafting 12th for that reason or smack in the middle to minimize the impact of a positional run on goalies or defensemen.

    Being the 10th pick, I'm making sure my drafting friend (I won't be there) keeps an eye on you.

    Really? I'm pretty sure you haven't mentioned a thing about keeping an eye on the two on the turn in between your picks
