It's customary for the Chronicle staff to compete against one another in a hellacious fantasy hockey league every season, but this year we've decided to open the fun to anyone who wants to play. So, loyal readers, if you're into this fantasy hockey thing, you should join our league.
Just head over to Yahoo! Fantasy Hockey , click on "Join a League," and then do what I says yotta do:
League ID #: 91821
The draft will be live and for real, not automatic unless you wish your choices to be so. I've tentatively scheduled the draft for 10:00 PM on Monday September 7; if there are all kinds of problems with this, just let me know and I'll happily re-schedule.
It's a points league. You get to choose two centers, two left wingers, two right wingers, four defensemen, two goalies, and four bench players that you can swap in and out as you see fit. That means you actually get to act as a hockey overlord and not as a lucky or unlucky automaton, so hooray!
Limit of 12 teams. Act quickly.
