Try hits and blocked shots. I can't see the whole list, but I'm going on past experience. Those two categories give D-men some value.

Also, the closest thing resembling a live draft is the Snake draft (Round 1, first to last, round 2 is last to first). Other wise we can do offline.

The Gary Gagas (gaga's?) are in! We did Snake in football, worked out well. Can't wait to see the draft order.

Snake draft is perfect I think.

I was really tempted to name my team Gay Buttler (because most of us know what that rhymes with), but I didn't want to get banned from ESPN, lol.

Figured you guys might have some input...

Any of you guys have experience with Gamecenter Premium? If so thoughts on it? Worth it? How many devices can be connected at once?

We were actually discussing this the other night. With the way blackout restrictions are, it really only appeals to people who live far away from their team. I feel like this is particularly crappy for the NHL since games don't get broadcast by local affiliates. With the Titans, I can watch every single game on over the air CBS. And I know MLB is the same way for people who live near a team. But with the NHL, you're pretty much forced to get cable if you want to watch your team play.

And considering what a rip off cable packages are...and how many "tiers" you have to buy before you get to the Fox Sports channels, it's just not worth it. So, for a lot of fans, your only choice becomes going through "other means" to stream the games. If I could watch Preds games through Gamecenter, subscribe to ONLY the Fox Sports Tennessee channel, or even pay through the Predators website JUST to watch their games, I'd gladly do it. In this age of networks hosting their programming online, mobile streaming apps, etc. having these archaic blackout restrictions just seems incredibly counterproductive for the league.

Honestly, save your money and stream it. It's what I did for most of the KHL games. Being a brighthouse customer, they have thier own channel for the Lightning which is great. I also have The NHL network for free which we barely watch honestly. Just save and stream it.


Edit: Never played fantasy hockey, so what is the Utility thing we have to pick for draft?

I didn't...Ill shoot him an invite. I think I've heard Captain Obvious Sya he plays fantasy, so I'll shoot him one too.
If there's anyone else on the Madden side who might be interested, let me know, or tell them to PM me their email. Depending on how big this gets, I don't know if a live draft will be feasible...


Gary, The Utility is like the "Any" for FIFA and NHL. You can have any player fill that spot.

You might just want to limit it to eight and go from there anyway. No point in going through a lot of trouble to find enough people on short notice.

I used to just go ahead and stream any game that I didn't get on TV. I was more or less contemplating it for the convenience of streaming through the 360 or PS3. I'm not really worried about the blackouts since I have FSN Detroit and Versus for when they are on there. I was just more considering it to be able to see some of the other teams that I like to watch (Boston, Nashville, and a few of the bigger rivalry games). I don't know... I guess I'll just think about it for the next couple days. I definitely would get it if they didn't have the blackouts, since then my brother would probably split the cost so he could watch the Wings.

If I do end up getting it, I'll let you guys know what I think about it...

What time will everyone be on? Since I usually leave around 8 my time for food, I can always set the draft live before I go and try to take my picks from my phone. I'll be back around 12EST also, so that's also possible. Don't know about Sir Matt Young sine he hasn't posted anything since.

I'm assuming if we go in and rearrange our player rankings, it will auto-draft for us based on that if necessary? (Just trying to account for 90 seconds between picks)

It should. I can up it to 120 max. I'll probably do that. So 12ish, unless it doesnt work for Brandon?

No, I think 90 seconds is plenty of time if we're all paying attention, lol. I'm just trying to be prepared in case Gary takes his shirt off to distract me. ;)

EDIT - But 120 seconds is fine too! I don't want no trouble, lol.
