fantasy hockey -- league set up, drafting soon!

As it turns out, when I went to set up a fantasy hockey league in Yahoo, there were just a few draft times available. Most of the other sites that offer fantasy hockey require $$ to make it happen. This is what you call a rock and a hard place.

I went ahead and created a league in Yahoo. A maximum of 12 teams are available, and there are 11 remaining holes. The only problem is the best draft time available was this coming Saturday at 6:00pm eastern time. All other draft times were on weekdays during the day. EDIT -- September 7 ----> The draft has been moved to Saturday September 23 at 7:00pm eastern time

I totally understand if nobody wants to join a league when you have so little time to prepare and no preseason to base your draft upon. However, if you're interested, you can go to this link and join the league. This works a lot better if you already have a (free) account with yahoo sports.

If you don't have an account, you'll have to take a few seconds to sign up.

To do it the old fashioned way, you can go to the main yahoo fantasy hockey page here, click "Sign up now" ... click "Join a custom league" ... enter the league ID# 30896 ... and the password : stanley

The way I've set it up, you have to dress two centermen, four wingers (at least one LW and at least one RW), four defensemen and two goalies. Six bench spots, and room for two guys on the IR.
