Yahoo has opened up their fantasy leagues and was wondering if anyone was down for a NHL league? Not expecting a lot of people to join because of the lack of hockey fans here but anyone interested? I'd like to try it out.

Id love to participate but being realistic there probably is not going to be a season sadly. Though apparently talks are getting a little better.

I'm game but it would be silly to start one until they decide whether there will be a season or not.

I can't think of any sport (other than maybe soccer) where stats matter less than in hockey, so how would this even work?

It usually goes Goals, Assists, Points, Power Play Points, Plus/Minus, Shots on Goal then Goalie stats like Save Percentage, Goals Against Average and Shutouts. Usually people like to throw in some bullshit stats like Penalty Minutes, Hits, Shorthanded Goals or Game Winning Goals.

Its actually a pretty decent fantasy game, though I wouldnt put it at basketball, football or even baseball's level.

You don't need all those fancy stats though. I just have it as points for players and then bonus points for powerplay and shorthanded goals. Then wins, shutouts and MAYBE saves for goaltenders.

I really don't think there will be a lockout but you're right, we should wait and see what happens with that. Players have been saying that isn't as bad as the media says it is and things have been progressing well. I really liked how things were going with the league, I don't find the NHL having a huge disparity like the NBA and I also think the salary is very reasonable.

^that, but without the saves.

I'm in even if I barely know players outside Montreal.

I'm considering it, I've grown my hockey fandom much more over the last few years.
