    EB, those first eight skaters are spectacular.

    LOTR, those five Flyers are how you wind up with a terrible +/-. After the draft, you realize that you couldn't resist six bargains from Buffalo.

    "I just... didn't enjoy it."
    "That's not good to hear - you love fantasy hockey. It's nice to see you passionate about something", she said.
    "...."

    When we have dinners with my two daughters, there's a lot of times where we really have to push them into trying their foods.
    "Can you girls please try this? Just a bite?", we say.
    "I don't like this", they say.
    "You don't know until you try", we say.
    "I know I don't like this", they say.
    And they try a bite. And they hate it.
    And... as a parent, we think... jeez, I don't think they gave that an honest try.
    But I think people know when something isn't going to go well for them.

    I walked into the draft disappointed.
    It's my fourth year in the Experts division.
    My draft positions... 9th, 7th, 9th, 9th.
    During the draft I kept thinking about that...
    "What's the odds of this?" - I think to myself in between picks.
    Four drafts, all back half.
    I know the odds. I'm good with numbers. (6/12*6/12*6/12*6/12 = (1/2)^4.
    The odds are 1 in 16 that somebody will have four consecutive 2nd half of draft picks.
    Don't worry about it... you like fantasy hockey... draft your players, stop feeling shitty about this...
    Just chat - it'll make you feel better...


    It should be better, though... could be/should be.
    That's the way the last two years of COVID have been for me.
    Shit - I posted about this the other day in the Carey Price thread.
    I feel like everybody else is getting through this better than me.
    I mean... I could have a top three pick... four drafts, I should've had ONE top three pick by now, yes...
    (Maybe... the odds of not having a top three pick are 9/12*9/12*9/12*9/12... 31%... OK, that's just 1in3... one in three people will have four straight drafts without a top three pick)
    (Right - I know... but I'm not just 31%, I'm four straight back-halfs... that one is 6%... I realize... but that's fine... somebody's gotta be in the 1in16. Just odds)
    (Shake it off Peng... just draft... you like fantasy hockey... just draft)

    Drafting... (mood declining)... it's a hard draft - not just the position, but among the elite competition.
    More calculating... what are the actual odds of having a top three pick: 3/12, yes... 25%.
    Two straight top 3 picks: 3/12*3/12 = 6%... opposite of four straight back-half.
    Three straight top 3 picks:... 1.5%
    Four straight top 3 picks:... 0.4%
    Five straight top 3 picks:... 0.1%
    (Let it go, Peng... you like this... this is fun for you...)

    And I think about Carey Price... he puts on a performance, he's good at his job... but something broke him, something went wrong along the way... and he needs some time off.
    And I think about Bo Burnham... whose special I've watched 10+ times now... and I think about how long he stepped away for... something broke him... it's the parts in between the songs I keep watching.
    And I think... thank god some people actually say it out loud these days when they feel like shit.
    And they took a break.
    And I think... now that I got through the key dates in my fantasy hockey drafts...
    I need a break.

    Good luck to everybody with their seasons.

    Dude, you're the best, man. You help so many people on here it's ridiculous, and always with an attention to detail and care that is remarkable.

    Take care of yourself. Covid has been brutal for so many, you are not alone.

    And from your description of things, you appear to have an AMAZING wife, and that is like winning the lottery.

    Be well!

    Well said indeed! I have always valued your input, Peng, and was super stoked to find out that I made it to the same league as you. Regardless of how the season turns out, you've definitely proved yourself to be one of the experts. I wish you the best though this season (in fantasy and in life). The challenges we encounter or are dealt may not always seem fair, but they do make us better and stronger.

    Just strange that I'm so far behind almost every team. Haven't had a skater game on my bench yet.
