    Enough hockey fans for a fantasy league?

    I was just wondering if there are any other users out there that would be interested in a fantasy hockey league, similar to the cyburbia fantasy football league. Seems that we've been picking up more Canadians and hockey fans in general lately. Since I've never participated, I have no idea how time consuming it is to start these things. Just trying to see if anyone else would want to play and if anyone out there wants to plan our first stab at a fantasy league. I know I'd play

    I'm game. Already do football and baseball, might as well try hockey.

    Yahoo has fantasy hockey as well....I'd be willing to set it up if we get enough players. We'd definitely need to do an "auto-draft" since there isn't nearly enough time to organize a draft ala the CFFL.

    I have the feeling that a super organized MSkis is gonna find a way to dominate. Good thing b/c the Wings of the real hockey league will NOT be dominating...


    Had to do it, sorry.

    It's going to be an auto draft....so pre-rank your players on yahoo, and once we get a sense about how many are going to play, we'll set the "draft" to go the week on 26 September.

    I've never done fantasy football or anything, but I'm willing to do hockey for a test run!

    You know what... the 2005 Brass Bonanzas will win the same number of games as the 2005 Hartford Whalers!

    Puckers are going to win it all baby!
