As of today, Friday, September 10, 5 managers have yet to join the league on ESPN. You have until the end of the day tomorrow, Saturday, September 11 to do so. I want the league to get started with a draft in the next week or so, and that requires full participation.

Update: The league is now full

Update 2: Polls will remain open until tomorrow, Wednesday, September 8. At that point, for the sake of speeding up the process, we will go with the majority.

Thanks to everyone for a quick response in filling this league. The following people have a spot:

Matt Bodenschatz Pensfan087 Ivan Ads7
Ray AKA WildcatRay Chris A Tim Albert
Team Jyeah Casey JMR Jeremy J
Matt (LucnhBox) Acierno Jon Swiss Seth Nicky V
TheOneAndOnlySurge Pens67 Moq Luke

For the 20 who joined, please cast your vote in the series of polls below. I will create the league based on the results.

The poll, “Statistical Categories,” is finalized, but will remain open. We received a majority vote of “9” for moderate, and I have determined the specific categories.

League Rules

  • Host: ESPN
  • Format: Undecided
  • Roster Size: 15 Active Players (3 LW, 3 C, 3 RW, 4 D, 2 G) — We will add an additional 3 bench spots and 3 IR spots, taking roster size to 18 + 3 IR (due to 9 votes wanting more than 15 players)
  • Stats: Moderate (G,A,PPP,SHP,+/-,PIM,FOW,SOG,Hits,BLK — W,Sv,SO,GAA,Sv%)


Original story

At this point in FF’s life, I think we’re capable of putting together a fun, competitive league for FF writers and readers — maybe displaying weekly standings on FF and honoring the league champion at season’s end.

I’d like to run the league through ESPN and am open to suggestions for league format, roster size and makeup, and statistical categories. Ultimately, I will determine the overall league set-up based on your input.

If interested, comment below, listing your ideal league set-up.

Obviously, I would like to keep the league to FF regular contributors, but, if need be, would be willing to accept non-FF hockey fans. Remember, with a 20-team maximum, space will be limited, so don’t wait!
