1. Daily add/drop player rotation is highly discouraged and will not be tolerated. This is the reason for the 80 move limit.
2. Playoff moves will be limited to 3 moves per week during playoffs (email request if you have a large numbers of injuries). This too is to prevent player rotation.
3. All trades, Add/Drop, and roster management must be done for the good of your team.
1. Each year we will be keeping as many players as we have roster positions. There are 17 roster positions.
2. No requirements on positions. (Example: If you choose to keep 17 centers, you may… although you would lose.)
3. Players on IR and in minors will also be kept from year to year.
4. IR Players need only be in the IR slot to be eligible (they do not actually have to still be on the IR in real life).
5. ALL TEAMS MAY ONLY KEEP a MAXIMUM OF 3 NON-FARM GOALIES. You may keep as many as you like on the farm.
6. Keeper Rosters and Minors must be posted on the HHKL Message Board and the Yahoo League page by the last day of the regular fantasy season.
7. Playoff call-ups and drops. Once the regular fantasy season ends, keeper and minors rosters are set for next year. Any drops or call-ups you make will not change your rosters you already submitted for next year. So drop your best player if he gets hurt during the playoffs… he will still be on your keeper list next year. Call up your best prospect for the playoff chase… he will still be on the farm starting next year.
1. All trade vetoing must be posted.
2. 4 posted vetoes negate a trade.
