    Default Dobber Hockey Guide - Worthwhile for non-standard league types?

    I'm looking into buying the dobber hockey fantasy guide for this year, as from what I've read it seems to be seen as one of the best guides available. Before I do, I wanted to hear from people who have bought it or have bought it in the past. Is it worth the money you spend, and how customizable are the rankings for different league structures?
    I'm in a Yahoo H2H league with the following cats: G, A, +/-, PIM, PPP, SOG, HIT, GAA, SV%, W.
    So they're standard categories with hits replacing SO. This year +/- may also be replaced by blocked shots. I know these changes are relatively minor, but is the Dobber guide in-depth enough to make good decisions based on this league structure?

    Welcome to the forums.

    Are you looking for a hockey guide for info or a draft guide to help you draft?

    The guide is chocked full of info and a great read. It's also the most up to date prior to the leagues first games compared to others.

    No offense but arent you a month behind schedule?

    25 Man Roster (no position), top 20 point getters count at end of month
    Keep 20/25 at seasons end, Cut 5 to FA for redrafting

    The guide itself is worth it, although you aren't going to get insight or predictions on some categories (e.g. +/-, GAA etc.)

    If you really want it all, you should be getting the guide with Fantasy Hockey Geek - you can customize FHG to your team / league settings...and get rankings, trade evaluations, etc.

    I'll just add that in addition to the guide, the mid season guide and the draft list as part of a package are worth every penny. With that package and FHG, I don't think there is anything else out there that comes even close. If your serious about fantasy hockey and you are willing to put in the work to win championships, then these are the tools that can make that happen. Good Luck!

    The guide is worth it for any kind of league, yearly or keeper. Doesn't matter. In recent years I have had less time to prep preseason but I always find myself going back to it throughout the year.

    Does anyone know what changes are made to the draft list over time? I did the work to add SOG for 300 players and I see there was an update on September 13 but no changelog. I'm assuming there's no substantial changes that would undo my efforts but want to be sure.
