    I played 5or6 years ago. Found it a bit clunky.
    Struggled to get my team up yesterday - probably took 15-20min (too long).
    I don't really need another contest to check up on... but as a fan of the wonderful small community that IS DobberHockey, I wanted to give some feedback to this thread.
    With 4 leagues on Yahoo!, 3 on Fantrax, 40hr job, wife, 2 kids, usual around-the-house stuff, and 40+yr old declining brain/body... it's just not another 5-10min per day I can afford, honestly.

    My picks for yesterday's games (Marner, Pastrnak) didn't do so hot. Freddie Anderson did get me some points.
    I also picked several young kids hoping to get "stock rise": Rasmussen-DET had nice price, Sam Steel-ANA, Iafallo-LAK, Foegele-CAR, too.

    Today I checked standings & sorted.
    I don't mind the fantasy points standings - that is what it is (though a MAJOR knock by me is that scoring doesn't appear anywhere simple, like the player pages)
    But the "Value" standings... IDK... I feel "gamed". It's been ONE day. 4 NHL gp.

    Here's what I see when I sort by the "Value" column header:

    313 Team Harambe -3.00 $56.23 Valid
    313 The Tortorellas -4.20 $53.96 Valid
    153 julian90 7.70 $53.06 Valid
    241 Cameron's Canadiens 2.29 $51.56 Invalid
    313 Wedgeee -4.80 $50.87 Valid

    ...
    ...
    313 99rules66isaFatbum -3.30 $50.12 Valid
    34 Two poets entered a 17.99 $50.11 Valid
    52 Eichel Tower 15.40 $50.11 Valid
    68 PaqMan 13.00 $50.11 Valid

    ...
    Teams 6th-519th teams are between $50.11 and $50.00

    But... there's the other 5 teams.

    ???
    My pattern recognition tells the rest of my brain "This is not a game you can win."
    Roulette, slot machine, Dobbernomics.
    [The five people with their "magic-quarter" in the slot machine are the winners. Give them their trophy, I'm going home.]

    Money would definitely be an added inducement - or even without money, a regularly published leader-board would spice up interest. For me personally it's about capacity. I'm managing 12 teams in Yahoo and 2 in Fantrax and I've got my full!

    This makes no sense since no player has a change in value of greater than 0.02 according to what I could find searching through the players list. 12 players per team with a max increase of 0.02 leads to the biggest possible value increase of 0.24.
