Some things I left out:
We could add more players, if you like. Additional wingers, perhaps 3 of each rather than 2. Or we could add a flex/utility position. I'm sort of opposed to that on traditional grounds but I'm old anyway.
Scoring is, as I said, simple. Goals, assists, +/- for skaters, wins and shutouts for goalies. I didn't see the ability to modify goals or assists for goalies to be higher point values. Do you want to?
I'm fairly intractable on the shutout value. I've played lots of times with it set at 5 points but that makes the goaltender the high scorer on most teams. That, to me anyway, is stupid. They're valuable but not that valuable.
I'd prefer to cap it at 10 teams but left it at the default in case we get a sudden flurry of interest.
League starts 05 October. I'd like to have a week to input the teams, so the draft needs to be done by around 28 September or so. The football draft has been slow, looking like it will need three weeks to finish. I don't mind the speed like that, so we should start the draft around 07 September. Is this reasonable?
I'll review the stuff that Yahoo has up by way of information over the next couple of days.
