I'm excited about the prospect of doing like 50 mock drafts in Yahoo. It's always interesting to see how different people draft.

Need a trophy for your fantasy league?
I've been using Yahoo! for the last 3 years. I like it a lot. I did get on a team last year on ESPN. I didn't think it was quite as well laid out, IMO. This year though, I'm going to look to join a keeper league on Yahoo. That just seems to add soooo much to your planning your season and long term strategy. I think it'll be fun!!
I've used Yahoo for some non-intense leagues in the past, and it was certainly fine. The layout is probably a bit better than ESPN. However, the extra tools and stats make ESPN the better league. I will say this, though...this year, my league I've been in for four years has decided to pay the $60 annual fee and move over to Fantrax. It absolutely blows the other two out of the water. Especially if you use a keeper league with prospects.
Official LWL Non-Keeper League - Shooting Scorgasms
C - Getzlaf, Backstrom, B. Richards, Henrique
LW - Datsyuk (C), Marleau, (C), Clowe (RW), Malone
RW - Sharp (C), Pominville, Alfredsson, Little (C)
D - Chara, Wisniewski, Orpik, Beauchemin
G - Niemi, Schneider, Theodore, Dubnyk
Further, beyond the prospects, it also allows draft picks to be traded.
It also has a significant amount more scoring options (goalie goals/assists, shutout goals, etc).
Do you have to pay to join a league that has already been created? I might be interested in joining a league on that site to see what it's like. I'm not involved in any dynasty type leagues (sadly) so I wouldn't get the full benefit of the site but I'm still curious.
LWL Non-Keeper - Apex Predators - Finished 5th
Death for Seth- LWL FHL Keeper- Finished 9th
G, A, +/-, PIM, PPP, SHP, FOW, HIT, BLK, W, GAA, SV, SV%, SO
C - S. Crosby, J. Benn (LW), J. Spezza
Wingers- J. Iginla, J. Carter (C), I. Kovalchuck
D - Z. Chara, D. Boyle, D. Girardi
G - S. Bobrovsky, E. Nabokov, V. Fasth
Maybe one day we can start a LWL dynasty league on that site . I don't think I'd ever get any work done after that.
