Angus Audits

Are you wondering what your plan of attack should be this summer? Preparing for a draft? Upset about some trades you made in the past? I'll weigh in with my thoughts on the interesting and important issues.


I will be running these audits on a weekly basis throughout the summer. Fire me an e-mail if you want to get in line!


Today I'll be taking a look at the team submitted to me by DobberHockey reader Kody (known as tradejunkie on the forums), who just won his league, but will have to pay a price for it because of an interesting rule change this summer.



The Team

The Hoseheads


The Rules

Standard Yahoo rotisserie league

Offensive categories: Goals, Assists, Points, Plus-minus, PPP, SHP, PIM, SOG

Goaltending categories: Wins, Save %, Shutouts

Farm rosters: up to 14 players, no player can have more than 250 games played in NHL

Number of keepers is relative to end-of-season standings

Old rule: each team kept 10 out of 22 roster players, and 10 out of 14 on the farm

New rule: first place keeps six roster players, second place keeps seven, and so on. Last place (10th) keeps 13. I think this rule is very interesting… hard to build a dynasty this way!
