Excellent Post! When I first started Fantasy Hockey (about 7 or 8 yrs ago now) I had no idea what I was doing (some will say I still don't). Those first few years are crucial and I would recommend acting like a sponge. Pretty much soak up everything you can. As others have said this site is an excellent resource and I wish I had it when I was first starting out. There are so many knowledgeable people here and all of them are willing to help. HF Boards are a good resource too, but too many trolls hang out there and will give you misleading information with an attitude. I prefer these boards over all else. The more time you put into it, the better an understanding you'll have and the better prepared you will be. It's good to draw your information from many sources also, as others have pointed out. 8 Years later, I look back at the Fantasy Hockey Virgin I was and laugh at some of the decisions I made/didn't make just from being ignorant. The more you learn and lean on your peers here (and elsewhere) for advice, the clearer the landscape of Fantasy Hockey will become. Just Know that there is now turning back from this road. It sucks you in and you will never look at the great sport of Hockey the same way again. Knowledge is Power as they say. So now you know... and knowing is half the battle.... Thanks G.I. Joe.
