You are in.  You could/will finish the season in a day.
I know you are in Vegas then going to Bama vs A&M.
We'll make it work.
Consider yourself in.

Since we basically have 3 A and 3 B players, I am going to make the draft traditional instead of a snaking draft.
So the order remains the same in every round.  Aqua always first and Raph last.
I am also going to implement that your 4th and 5th Forward and your 4th Defensemen must be rated below 50.
The reason for this is #1 they rarely see the ice so it doesn't matter, #2 it assures the retro players a spot on Line 1, and #3 it makes injuring the other teams top players more significant.

Additionally,
All Home/Away advantages and PP/PK advantages will be equal.

Retro Players and Draft info coming tonight, I may try a Brutus style video, though I won't be drunk so it may be lame.;)

I will take BOS.

So rosters are from normal NHL94.bin, right? (I know it is altered, but the rosters are the same, right?)

I see almost no Ds below 50 and very few Fs below 50 on those 6 teams.  Should it be below 60?

Dumb Rule!

Forget it let the retro guys stand on their own merits if they don't make the starting line-up so be it.

Is that why you call it the "Premium" League?  Cuz you are taking a hardline approach like our beloved Premium Plabax?  (J/K)

Ok, one thing.  Are the 6 "Retro Players" part of the normal pool?  Meaning, you can draft them whenever?  Or are they the last to be drafted, or the 1st, or completely up to me, or what?

I think am going to take Mario first, unless one of these retro guys is too superhuman.  (The fact that I can't keep a Retro Dude next draft devalues them a bit for me, since I have 0% chance of winning and need superstars to carry forward.)  Gonna take a look at the Retro Dudes now...

EDIT: Ok, I looked.  No superhumans.  So...

Yes, it is a nod to Plabax.:big_smile:

The retro guys are pretty good, but not super-human as you saw and exactly they must retire so that devalues them.

You may draft them any time, but each team gets just one.

Jer is on the clock.  I am going to be gone for a few hours so if Jer picks expect a couple hour delay on my pick.

couple questions, i may have miss understood.

1) so the player pool is NOT from the teams we picked BOS, CHI, MTL, DET, NYR & TOR?  instead it is from NJ, NYR, NYI, PHI, PIT & WASH?  I looked at the wrong team ratings to determine players under 50 rating, my apologies there. 

2) keep 1-3 players depending on finish, got that

3) so the historical players.  each team can only draft one, or one team could draft all of them?  (I do understand you cant keep a historical player).

4) This is WBF, yea?

I think thats all i got for now.  looking forward to it.  thx.

Only one Retro Dude per team.  Draft your one guy whenever you want.

Yes, WBF.

I answered how I understand things.  Pretty sure I got it right...

Aqua, you hit a Home run.
The under 50 thing was still a stupid rule, so thanks for helping to eliminate it Tex.
This Season Draft Pool is Patrick Division (NJ, NYI, NYR, PHI, PIT, WSH).
Season 2 Adams (BOS, BUF, HAR, MTL, QUE, OTT)
Season 3 Norris (CHI, DAL, DET, STL, TOR, TB)
Season 4 Smythe (CGY, EDM, LA, SJ, VAN, WPG)
1 Retro Dude per team drafted whenever you want, so we will all have one, even if he just rides pine.

 

With Selection 1.3 I am taking my Retro Dude Goaltender Terry SawchukIMG_6941 (1).jpg

Tex you are on the clock.

That is interesting, Coach.  I had my eye on Sawchuk, too.  Figured he was the Patrick Roy of this league, based on his 6 agility.  But I didn't want to pull the trigger cuz you can't carry Retro Dudes forward.  Anyhoo, guess the rest of us are stuck with middling/crap tenders, based on Patrick division limitations. (Though I have a feeling you may have taken Messier, if Jer didn't.  You wreaked Havoc with #11 in Et Tu Brute, I remember.) (Also, I would much rather you have an awesome goalie than Raph, that is for sure!)

I had a hard look at Sawchuk as well, but didn't want to lose out on a top forward.

 

Do we have an exi rom yet? ;)
