    A second league could be a conference and then we can make it a Stanley cup playoff. Winner gets a personal sig banner made by Philtalic

    I'd be down to be in another league if we need bodies.

    BSBH East and BSBH West? I suppose we could do that, yeah. I'd want more than five users showing interest in this, though.

    Ideally I'd like to keep the two with as little cross-over as possible, so we're giving as many users who couldn't get into this league a shot at the second as possible.

    I should just put it out there:

    With Johnny Dollaz the only outstanding invite, who would be interested in a second BSBH Fantasy Hockey league?

    The following list have expressed interest thus far:

    FleshistheFever
    Parsley
    Drew a Penalty

    Another option is to expand the current league to include more teams and then simply add Divisions to the existing league. We're at 12 teams now, so if we added no new teams, it could be a 6-team division versus a 6-team division, or we could up it to 14 teams and go 7-7.

    Ideally it'd be two 12-team leagues with separate drafts that then go head-to-head in the championship round. I'm looking into whether that's actually possible or not now.

    Question answered — not possible. Yahoo! leagues draft by league, not division. The only way to divide the current league would be to include divisions as I illustrated above. 6/6 in a 12-team league or 7/7 in a 14-team league. Anything more is just going to water down the draft to the point it really won't be fun to even play/draft. When the best UFA on waivers is Tim Kennedy, your league sucks.

    It's NHL vs. KHL. The NHL is the place to be.

    This is normally where I'd sacrilegiously Photoshop the Gagarin Cup over an iconic Stanley Cup celebratory photo, but I don't want to, so please accept this verbal description as a consolation prize.

    What if its set up like European leagues. Second league's winner and runner up get promoted, bottom two in top league get sent down?

    Only problem this poses is with me. If I finish dead last, I can't actually be demoted. As Commissioner, I'm quite literally stuck to the league. In fact, the only way for me to "leave" it is to completely delete the league.

    Yahoo doesn't allow the transfer of ownership?

    It does. But someone would have to be willing to commish it.

    It might. I'm not 100% on it, but I do remember reading specifically (yesterday) that the only way I could leave was to delete the league.

    I know I can transfer Ownership of a team at any given time, but I'm not sure how that applies to League Owners.

    I'm pretty sure an untrained monkey can commish a league.

    Or maybe make it so you have to be an active contributor to the forum to remain in the league
