After an off season with lots of changes the original league that spawned off many others is coming back strong.We have a new commissioner, new teams and a new website.Stay tuned in this thread for news, updates and discussions about the best fantasy hockey league around.First order of business is the draft that is set for September 23 at the house of the owner of the storied AHL franchise the Mustangs.

The commissioner of the league is some professional poker player that has commitments in vegas and London.He has to be London on the weekend of the 26th. The week before is the "other" league that the ex commissioner is drafting as well I believe said commissioner isnt available.

Myself and Bob will be in the new league. Daniel will not be in the new league for many reasons. Darrell and Daniel had some disagreements and this is why Darrell is gone and Daniel isnt in the new league.

Cool. Just tell me who/what I'm taking over and let me start my dynasty. Try to get me the team with Tyler f'in Kennedy, so I can pillage Zach's team with my first AHL trade.

Simply using "TFK" can save you time in the future.

It might be me that you're thinking of. If I wasn't embarrassed a couple years ago when I put it up...why should I be now?

I'll be at the draft for sure. I was offered a team in the other league, but declined the offer. Managing one team requires a lot of time and devotion. I wasn't a fan of the new league starting out, because it competes for owners initially jeopardized the league's future. The AHL will be just fine, though, and for the current owners leaving, I think they are making a big mistake. What happens when their new league starts, than the commish just gets bored with his team and decides, meh, let's start all over. So if you spent 5 years trying to build a winner and now finally your team is prepped to compete... he could just dismantle the league. That's not going to happen to the AHL.

Daniel,We need to make some decisions on stuff soon. I think if a few of us get together on MSN to iron out some details in the next week it will be helpful.Dave(website), Dale(stats and rosters), should be included in a quick governors meeting.Also the owner of the Smugglers is MIA and needs to be replaced as we have no way of getting a hold of him.

John,We can definetely consider you, however being at the draft physically is a must in our pool. Most of our guys are based in Toronto and the surrounding areas.
