Bluth Company Universal Trade/Lineup Thread PT 2: Offseason Trade Deadline at 12am!
-No trade can involve more than 4 Roster Players (combined from both teams)
-No trade can involve more than 6 total pieces (combined from both teams)
-GMs are allowed Two Trades Per Season. The specific Injury, Offseason, Regular Season, and Deadline moves have all been removed. Yes, even the Injury Trade. These two trades can be used at any time from Day 1 of the Offseason until the Trade Deadline.
This is the rule that both directly and indirectly separates this league from the rest. Trades are supposed to be a big deal. A trade is the literal removal of assets from your team in place of other assets in order to make the team better. Its not something that real GMs take lightly. The success of their team and their jobs depend on how well their decisions pan out. One of the major reasons so many other leagues unfortunately dont work out is because people get so excited about making trades that they forget their team needs, how close their team is to a cup, how these deals will impact their present and future. This isn't the case in The Bluth Company because of the above mentioned rules. GMs will have had two seasons to shape their team, to manage their cap, and plan for a Cup run or Rebuild.

Alright, here's what i've been thinking about as far as next offseason goes...
Managing Cap Space:
-What happened with Montreal and New York this past offseason, that wont be happening again. Every GM now knows how the NHL Salary Cap and Organization Salary Cap now work. All of this information is easily available in the contract screen. However, you will have to add the salaries of the "In The System" players to your Cap space as well.
I cant fault MTL and NYR this offseason because neither I nor them had any idea how this was going to work. However, now that we do know, its the GM Responsibility to manage their cap space. This is such a huge part of being a GM in real life and it should play an equally important role in NHL 13. If you dont have cap space to sign your players then you dont have cap space. Thats a very real occurence in the real NHL (see 2010 Blackhawks)
Easily the biggest offseason issue was Boston losing Lucic and Marchand to Free Agency. This happened largely in part due to the loose schedule i had for the offseason, which was caused by a total lack of understanding on how many sim periods were involved in the offseason. I got over anxious, wanted to get things done as quickly as possible so to allow GMs to get back to the regular season ASAP. This was a mistake. The Offseason is an important process and i need to treat it as such. This is how the offseason will be broken down from now on...
AP 1: This is during the Stanley Cup Finals round. In this AP, all GMs are required to set their Draft Priority
Day 1-->AP 2 (June 26th): After the SCFs are finished, i'll be simming all the way up THROUGH the Draft. Bringing us to the first eligible day to send contracts to our UFAs and RFAs. GMs will then have 24 hours to submit their offers.
*I have 2-3 more advances inbetween here that i may use for the most active GMs to immediately see if their players signed or not
Day 2-->AP 3 (June 29th): I'll then advance the schedule again, bringing us to June 27th. At this point, GMs will then have another 12 hours to submit counter offers to their players if they have rejected them.
Day 2-->AP 4 (July 1st): I'll then advance the schedule again, bringing us all the way through to July 1st. GMs will be given an additional 12 hours to manage any freak occurences that happened during AP 2 & 3.
Day 3-->AP 5 (July 2nd): I'll then advance the schedule to July 2nd, which will be the Official 1st day of Free Agency. During this time period, GMs will have 24 hours to submit offers to any player they like. Any and all players not signed by GMs i.e. lost to Free Agency, are available to any and all GMs.
Day 4-->AP 6 (July 3rd): Gms will be given until sometime the next night to send any further offers they wish to send.
Day 4-->AP 7 (October 3rd): Free Agency will have been finished. The Regular Season will have begun.
***Throughout this entire process, i'll be expecting GMs to send me "Confirmation" PMs telling me they've submitted their contracts
..This will be done because if (IF) every GM has submitted their offers i'll be able to advance to the next AP earlier than listed. Early Advances will only happen if every GM has submitted a PM to me.===============================================
Free Agency needs to be a real thing in this league. It doesn't exist just as a process for me to sim through. Its designed for other GMs to be given a chance to improve their teams. Especially since i put a limit on trades, Free Agency offers a potential league shakeup and boost to other teams.
I will not, NOT be lenient next offseason. My schedule is going to be very strict. GMs are going to have to pay attention and be active during this time period because its not fair to the rest of the league for an entire process like this to be ignored due to your inactivity. This means you have to get on xbox live, and send GOODcontracts in a timely manner and do whatever you need to do in order to sign your players. Any players that fall to Free Agency...thats just too damn bad. If Toews and Kane BOTH for some reason just refuse to sign with Chicago and/or i cannot afford their cap hits (EVEN due to the "In the System" effect) then that means i lose Toews and Kane.
The Offseason is going to be a 4 Day Process. Yes, it sucks. I know it sucks. I want to get back to playing games just as much as you all do. But unless EVERY GM sends me a PM, consider this the schedule. I cannot stress this enough. It is your responsibility to...
1) Manage your Cap Space
2) Follow the above mentiond Schedule
3) Be Active and knowledgeable about the ongoings of the league during this time
How will we know which UFAs and Rfas simply cannot be afforded by the teams and were let go ?
NEW YORK RANGERS LIST
C DEREK STEPAN
D MICHAEL SAUER
So for anyone hitting potential issues with retaining/keeping players. I say Make a list!
when can we sign UFA'S july 2nd?
:stars just made my first batch of UFA/RFA offers. Ready for the sim tonight.
When i know which GMs are good to go and which GMs still need more time/are having issues, i'll let you guys know.
1) Expect League wide UFA signings to happen Tuesday night/Wednesday night
2) I honestly wouldn't be expecting any major UFAs to be available. Especially since this is a videogame, i think as long as the original team sends them a good offer they'll accept it 99% of the time.
I would like to request that teams list whether or not they still have their one season trade or not... maybe on their team page somewhere? I would hate for people to waste their time looking for a player and inquiring about a trade only to find out that the specific team isn't allowed to make one.

BOLD = UNTOUCHABLE | RED = TRADING BLOCK
Wow didn't know the Rangers trade block was so out of date
Got the majority of my team signed last night.
Gave Theo Peckham his pay raise demand... what a joke.
Ducks have made offers to their free agents. Looks like Backstrom will be hitting free agency as he is out of my price range. (This has nothing to do with a problem in the game, just asking for far too much for me to sign him instead of just playing Hiller.)
Cant believe the money some of these guys are asking for, Joensuu didn't play a game last season until the final sim and now wants 4.8 mil per year? Not cool.
Was flipping through contracts screen and wondering what will happen if a team like Bruins are neglected and guys like Lucic, Marchand and Seguin don't even get qualified. Glad to see you are already on top of this and not allowing teams to to be ruined by a GM who is no longer around or busy at a bad time. Not picking on Bruins GM at all, just saying the B's will be screwed if their players aren't offered contracts
The offseason is such a buzzkill. I remember Boston GM speaking to me earlier about how he might not be around. I sent him a message but if he doesn't respond i'll temporarily boot him, have a different GM leave their team and join as the Bruins, sign the Bruins players, and then go back to their original team.
If this needs to be done with other teams i can do that as well
I sent my contracts last night, and this morning pretty much sent new contracts to players that didn't like their original deals. I think I'm pretty much covered... hopefully, I'm not over the cap.
One thing I don't get is that if they are counting the players in the system, then when the season start and players get sent to the minors... wont we all have like 20 million $ under the cap? Anyway, whatever happens happens.
Can't wait to start the new season!
Avalanche lock up Ryan O'Reilly and Johnson to contracts! woo.
Johnson signs a massive 8 year deal at a modest 6.5 mil cap hit, he isn't going anywhere folks. O'Reilly's deal is 3 years.
