Olympic Change

Due to the NHL All Star break not happening this year, we will not be holding the annual All Star Competition within the WTHL (the free transaction per stat a team is on top of thing). Have no fear though, it will not be canceled altogether but merely postponed.

So, for the 5th season of the WTHL we will have an Olympic Competition... which is essentially the same but not until the Olympic Games break.

I'm also toying with something fun for the 2 week break as well. Not sure exactly what, but it would be neat to put our Olympic playing players up against each other. I'll ponder it further.

I just read that Yahoo will be offering the Stat Tracker this season FOR FREE for the entire duration of the hockey season. They are apparently doing it right now for football.

Good news no?

By the way, if anyone is curious, I also read that the Yahoo Fantasy Hockey Leagues will be opening again on September 1st.

Beautiful. Let's get this shit on the go!

Keeper Tracker

A new spreadsheet has been added to the league stats page and will be used to track the keepers who are selected from year to year. This page can be found by clicking HERE or by using the menu on the right.

Each team will have their selections listed here and also keep track of the number of years the player has been under contract. The number after the players name is what indicates this, but of course this year they will all say one.

Remember, your keepers are due on September 1st. Forgetting to do so could be very consequential...

Keeper Due Dates

I've set a due date for each teams keeper selections to be handed into the Commish to be September 1st (and 1 week after that for the 16th team).

The Guidelines and Rules:
1) All keepers must be delivered by end of day (11:59pm) September 1st. Those who do not select keepers will get them selected for them by way of random draw.
2) The Keeper selections must be ranked 1 through 5 to indicate which round your selecting each player.

More Keeper Rules can be found by clicking here:

Dates to Remember:

September 1st: Keeper Due Date for returning teams
September 8th: Keeper Due Date for the new team
September 19th: $20 entrance fee due date.
September 20th (OR 27th): Live Draft Day
October 1st: NHL Season begins.
