I am (hopefully) coming out of my 2ish year "retirement" from playing in Feb by joining a 30+ draft league. When I turned 30, I said I wouldn't play in a 30+ league until I was 40. Well, that age will be coming in Sept so I guess it is time.
It's official, I am on a 30+ team starting in Feb. They have an evaluation skate on Feb 4th and the league starts the next week. Time to be a little less fat...

So I get a Facebook Messenger message from the lawyer that closed my house , which is now over 3 years ago in Toronto. Saying they did some accounting and they found they owed me $641..He asked for my Canadian account number ( which I dont have anymore)..

So I was very skeptical. First of all I have heard of these facebook scams and stealing of info..Then this was over 3 years ago, now he found the money? Well apparently its legit , I just called and talked to him on the phone he is going to deposit the money in my moms account.

The bad news is I just looked up $641 Canadian today is only like $474..Oh well..Merry xmas..

Found salami money!

Seattle coming in to the west is exciting...Personally more west coast teams I like as well.

Interesting to see what happens with the expansion draft..Still have over 2 years for that, and it will happen after the CBA is renewed and hopefully no lockout.
florida has already offered their first round draft picks and Ekblad to Seattle in exchange for a Starbucks latte.

I haven't seen Sprong in weeks, I think he headed to Anaheim about a month ago maybe.

#3774431 Daily Fantasy Sports. Lets All Make Some Money

I don't really consider myself particularly knowledgable about hockey. Compared to the general population, yes, but compared to people who would be playing DFS seriously for money, nah.

I do think that NFL DFS brings in the most recreational money and it's not even close, but the main reason I enjoy it way, way more than other sports is just the way the NFL sets up. You have all week to think things over, do research, make lineups etc.. which is something that I really enjoy doing. Then the actual act of sitting down and watching NFL red Zone on sunday and sweating all your players is so much fun. I'm probably somewhere between a marginal loser and marginal winner long term at NFL DFS, so the number one thing for me is that it is fun. NFL DFS is like the perfect blend of the things that I enjoy doing (fantasy sports, watching sports, gambling). I just don't get the same actual enjoyment out of watching other sports (Leafs games notwithstanding)

I bought my daughter (Malone) her first pair of skates for Christmas or her 3rd birthday (Jan 10). I also got her a helmet/cage.

I also got my wife her first pair of skates for Christmas because she's been giving me shit about buying Malone skates but I have never taken her skating in 7+ years.

I think we use the worst waiver process available as an option. (Edit: maybe first come first served is worse.)

I don't think the worst-to-first method is a true indicator of a teams strength. Ex/ Grreaseballs was the second worse team in the standings last year and gets second priority. This process doesn't account for the players a team like Greaseballs can activate/acquire from the farm/auction. Greaseballs was not the second worst team in the league 6:00 tonight.

Basing the priority list on the standings at the waiver claim deadline each week would be a little better, but I think we should get rid of the worst-to-first idea altogether.

Someone mentioned this before... Mike, I believe... we should use a Blind Bid waiver process (seems appropriate given the poker influence in the pool).

Blind Bid (BBID) A waiver claim placed on a free agent for a certain dollar amount using the teams allowed blind bid budget. These bids cannot be seen by other teams. The highest bidder will win the player.

We'd just have to decide what the starting budget would be and some other little details.
