I run dynasty leagues in baseball, football, and basketball. One of the members of all three has persuaded me to run a hockey league as well. I am admittedly not the biggest NHL guy, but I enjoy running dynasty leagues and I love the sport, so here we are.
All my leagues follow the same general format and are true dynasty's with rookie only drafts.
Things that will set this league apart are.
Teams names are logos are set. This is a themed league where the team names and logos follow a similar feel.
Discord for league communication (the league is already over half filled with outstanding owners from my other leagues)
Weekly power rankings with graphics voted on by the league
Game of the week with graphics and write up
Player of the week honors
In season tournaments for FAAB and other in game prizes
Captains cup event
Division banner and championship ring graphics posted on the home page of the league
We have a small buy in. $25 gets you 5 years of dynasty ($5 a year). Champions receive $50 each season in years 1-4 and then $100 in year 5 (this plays to the long-term dynasty aspect of the league) but it's really not about the money with us. It's an ESPN league that's paid through leaguesafe.
The best thing I can tell you guys about this league are the people that are in it. It's such a great group of guys and most of them I haven't met in person, but we have become close over the years through these dynasty leagues.
A few teams have filled in the time it has taken me to write this so we are down to only a few teams left.
Available teams are: Tianjin Tuskers, Perm Ice Dragons, Gothenburg Goats, Nuuk Polar Bears, Ottawa Oxen, Bloomington Beaverjax, but three spots are reserved and waiting for guys to select their team.
