If you wanna play a single-season fantasy hockey with this community this season, speak here. Priority will be given to returning Tier 1's last year (and the promised promotees from Tier 2), then Tier 2s last year, then newbies.

If we get 14 or fewer people we will run one league.

Of we get 16 or more... we'll figure it out.]]>

Now for the notable events for the off-season:

June 22-23, 2018
NHL Entry Draft, American Airlines Center, Dallas

July 1, 2018
Free agency begins at noon.


Question becomes:

  • Which big name player will be traded?
  • Who will retire?
  • Which long-standing player defects for a chance at the Cup?
  • Where will Kovalchuk sign?
  • Do we get a confirmation on Seattle?...

With two weeks to go until the regular season, I'll set the draft to the Sunday before the regular season (The 1st, I believe) at 10EST/7PST. This can be changed if necessary.
