Sorry for the confusion guys.
Corrected the loss category for goalies. I'm assuming way too much logic in the yahoo system that isn't there. I'd assumed putting in '1' would result in a negative category (losses) being a negative modifier. Not so, but I can add in the - for -1 to get it right and have done so. Thanks for catching that Rob.
I'm not sure post draft we can modify anything beyond my own stupid errors with setting up the league physically. I know I drafted with the points scheme being as it was, so I'm not keen on reducing stuff.
Interesting side point: if you've ever tried to figure out how and why the Rank and O-rank differ in yahoo hockey, it's because there's a formula based on the scoring system in place. And it's awfully close to what we drafted with. The plus/minus being a goodly chunk of it.
I calculated the point totals for all the guys down to about 250 players using our scoring scheme and drafted a number of guys that might have otherwise not made sense to some of you where I drafted them last night. I drafted guys, notably defensemen, with fewer goals and assists but had a good +/- rating so had a better overall total score. Gonchar is a good example of this. He's certainly my favorite defender, but playing on Pittsburgh and having a losing record hurts his value making him fairly average. If we tinker with the +/- stat now, his value goes up.
