Default Fantasy League Looking for Managers

We have a cash league starting. $50 per year. Some very experienced GMs are at the helm as 3 commissioners running the league. So far we have 18 spots of 30 filled. The league is based off of the Simon T Hockey Simulator and ratings are depicted from performance in the NHL.

The league is named General Managers Hockey League (GMHL).

The league will emulate the NHL as much as possible including salary cap, ufa, entry draft, finances, waivers, etc...

If interested email gmhlcommish@gmail.com to get more information.

Teams available as of today:

Arizona Coyotes
Carolina Hurricanes
Columbus Blue Jackets
Dallas Stars
Florida Panthers
New Jersey Devils
New York Rangers
New York Islanders
Vancouver Canucks
Washington Capitals

Also, a lot of the guys are based out of Calgary. So opportunity to meet some over time.

No, the league will kick off with an inception draft. All players drafted in or before the 2013 NHL entry draft will be available. It will be a 50 round draft to fill out prospect pool, minor team etc... So all players will be mixed up.

Does the person running the league have a team involved? If so, I can't see this ending well with real money involved.

Of course they do. Its 50 bucks, if you think anyone would waste as much time as it takes to run a league like this just to fleece people out of 50 bucks you're sadly mistaken. Its ran off of passion for competition through in depth knowledge of the NHL, prospects, contract valuation, negotiation etc... The cash involved just adds an extra dynamic designed to heighten peoples involvement in league activities as some of these pools can get stagnant after a period of time.

Also the league is ran by a committee of 3 individuals, not just one. So everything has a comfortable amount of checks and balances to ensure parity.

We'll see how GMs feel at the end of the first season.

I'm considering it but I'm a rookie and haven't participate in fantasy leagues such as this in the past.
