sorry to hear Sak, take your time, we'll be here.
i think the $75 cap is ok. True, I did not spend all of it, but i think that is part of it. remember, those 6 players can only play 50 games, the big part of this league will be how you use all of your players, not just the "big" six.
Thanks for the kind words guys. This was a tough weekend, especially since my own mother passed away 6 months ago. I was hoping for a better 2013 than 2012, but it certainly isn't starting that way.
As for the cap, I quoted glen87, because he hit the nail on the head. It's not who you take, it's how you use them. I made the cap high enough so that you could take a the most expensive guy at each position if you wanted. Even with that though, there are questions, as have been mentioned already. Do you got for offense from the blue line or defense? Do you take a low GP/high save % goalie knowing that you won't need him every game? But since they can't play more than 50 games, you need to decide when to use them. Use them early and try to build up a big lead in standings? Save them for the stretch drive? Use some early and some late? There are plenty of strategies you can use, and not everyone is going to use the same one. This league is more about team management than drafting. That said, I will draft my team when I get home from work this evening, and we'll have a league number then.
