League history

2012-13

A shortened season due to the lockout, but went fairly well once the season got started. The New CBA will be a challenge during the draft as the cap moves from 70.2 to 39 million dollars. Very few changes planned to the site or rules for this season at this point.

2011-12

Another successful year with very few big changes to the website. The rookie GM's did extremely well this season taking the titles in both the A and C Leagues. Second year of keepers which will need to have some work done to improve the tracking methods. Hoping that we will not have to deal with a lock-out this season. Some proposed changes are a chat room for trade negotiations and changing the deadline on when the lineups are due from Sunday to Monday to take into account any player injuries from the Sunday games.

2010/11

League expands to three different levels A, B and C with steps in both dues and prize payout's. Expansive changes done to format of site to accommodate multiple leagues. Draft was a bit of a mess to coordinate and handle, but learned much about what to and not to do next season. Interest suggests that we could double again next season, but may prove to be a larger task than I want to tackle. Diagnosed with CML in November and have decided to stay with current format to reduce stress.

2009/10

League explodes to a full thirty teams, testing the limits of the available draft systems and depth of the talent pool of the NHL. Near the end of the regular season, it is decided to down size the league to a 20 team cap, but to expand and add a second and third league.
