Since the Free Agent Frenzy has died down, it's been slow on the news front in the NHL; however, fantasy hockey season will be upon us very shortly. So, I wanted to give a quick update on what to expect from Landshark Hockey in the coming weeks and months.
First off, we'll be releasing a brand new feature in September. It's a complete Mock Draft module. To help you prepare for your own fantasy draft, there is nothing better than practice. I'm only aware of 1 other site that has such a feature, and I think ours will have some unique benefits. For example, you can draft any time you wish (you don't have to schedule and hope other guys show up). The Draft will randomly assign draft tendencies to your opponents, which you can override and configure as you wish. More to come on this in the next couple weeks. We're looking for Beta Testers who would like to give it an early spin. If you're interested, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We're in the process of putting together our fantasy hockey draft rankings right now, which should be available towards the end of August. We'll be rating the top 100+ forwards, 50+ defensemen, and 40+ goalies, along with commentary to help you prepare your lists. Blog posts and articles should start coming out in a couple weeks to help you start to formulate your lists.
Speaking of which, we've recently enhanced our Draft Guru functionality to better help you prepare your own draft lists. We've upgraded the drag and drop capabilities to help it run faster. More features will be added in the next couple weeks there as well.
Fantasy Hockey Drafts will be here soon. Check back in a couple weeks and we'll be there to help you dominate once again.
