I wanted to explain some of the rules here so everyone knows what’s happening and we can all have fun this season!
This year will be a Rotisserie league. In Rotisserie pools, each team is ranked on a number of statistic categories based on how they compare with other teams. Then, your placement in those rankings are summed to determine your current score.
For example, if there are 15 managers in the pool, and you’re 1st place in goals and 2nd place in assists, you will get 15 pts for goals, 14 pts for assists. The manager with the lowest rank in each category gets 1 pt. The manager with the most points at the end of the season wins.
Clearly it makes sense to go for players that will do well in numerous stat categories.
Some of the finer details:
- 25 Moves Maximum. This means you can drop players and pick up available players as Free Agents (FA) or off Waivers (W). The initial waiver order is reverse draft order. If two managers make a claim for a player on waivers, the manager with the lower waiver priority will get the player.
- 2 Days Waiver time. When a manager drops a player, their status is W for waiver for 2 days, before they become FA or Free Agent.
- 25 Trades Maximum. Trades are reviewed by the Commissioner before being approved.
- 65 Games Maximum at each roster spot. This means 130 games for both C, both G, and 260 games among all your D, and all your Wingers.
Last season, @BrownAristotle was the winner of the Smythe Division, and @wilsons618 was the winner of the Northwest Division.
I’ve created 2 Twitter lists, one for each division, following all of the managers in each. Feel free to follow the list or the tweeps on the lists. The pool is free to enter, but bragging rights are on the line. I haven’t even considered prizes this year.
DRAFT DAY FOR NORTHWEST DIVISION IS Mon Jan 14 8:30pm PST
DRAFT DAY FOR SMYTHE DIVISION IS Tues Jan 15 8:30pm PST
Good luck to everyone!
