Attention, IPB Irregulars! We’ve mentioned here that it’s time to start thinking fantasy hockey! Now’s the time to get serious (not that we’re never not serious about the business of fantasy hockey — HA!) so here’s the dealio. If you are interested in joining the IPB Superleague (or Amazingleague) please do the following:
1. Email andrew, the fearless commish, at a_d_mattson [@] yahoo [dot] com. Right now there is no set-deadline, but we’ll probably be looking to get the ball rolling on the draft in early September.
2. Tell him which is your favorite team. Remember, this is a cross-conference league. If you’re a fan of an EC team, your fantasy team must be entirely comprised of WC players. There are no exceptions to this rule. There will be no whining until you can get your favorite player on your team. Heather. And no “oops, I picked up the wrong guy” mid-way through the season. Sherry. Heh.
3. Watch this space for more information regarding the Auto-Draft. Andrew will make sure you get an invitation from Yahoo! to join the appropriate league (depending on the number of people signed up, we may need to split into two leagues). We will determine a date for the Auto-Draft that works for as many people as possible (i.e. when Patty’s on vacation). You will then be responsible for removing all players from the opposite conference. You may rank the remaining players as you see fit. Then Yahoo will do the rest! All that you’ll need to do then is sit back and watch as the PanBoxers and Tintin Tattoos kick some butt.
Remember, if you’ve expressed interest in joining in the comments but haven’t emailed andrew, you will need to drop him a line. He needs your email address to make sure you get registered. If you have any questions, let us know!
