Welcome, gentlemen!

Count me in.

I'll try. That's a great theme. It also eliminates injury prone Dmen

Another great thing about the league is that it encourages use of the all time great d-men that you never otherwise see even in many theme leagues:  if you want a dman with a rating over 60 you now have to ignore the low point high d-rating guys and focus on guys like Orr, Lidstrom, Niedermeyer, Potvin, Coffey, Stevens, etc.

It is [total points] greater than or equal to [D-rating].

For interest's sake, here are the 6 defencemen on my team right now:

Player                                                 Points       D-Rating    Salary
85-86 Larry Robinson                             82             82            8.5 mil
77-78 Brad Park                                      79             79            8.2 mil
76-77 Borje Salming                               78              69            6.6 mil
75-76 Ron Stackhouse                           71              63            5.7 mil
78-79 Ian Turnbull                                   63              47            3.8 mil
80-81 Pekka Rautakallio                         56              51            3.9 mil

I don't know the right template for this theme, that's the main reason why I am eager to play the league.
(That, and getting to use some of the bigger-name defence men who are sometimes over looked
in favour of high-D, low scoring defencemen who are cheaper in salary.)

Are there any cool parameters on goaltenders?

I thought about limiting save percentage, but in the end I decided not to....

Does anyone have input on this aspect?

Under 91?

For some reason I thought there was an .890 limit but I must have been confusing themes?  That said, I'd be fine with anything:  limit, no limit, etc.   Because there is a practical restriction the theme imposes on all players D-ratings (even those with high D ratings would be prolific scorers)  I think there will be no shortage of offense regardless of if there is or isn't a restriction on the goaltenders save %.  That's part of what is so intriguing about this theme:  as the_jsa mentioned it is difficult to guess what the right mix is for a winning team.
