Bluth Company 2014-2015 Stanley Cup Champions

:jets

Winnipeg Jets



"Around late July/Early August I was in 3 GM leagues. In every league i noticed the same thing. Everyone trades away nearly half their team. I was completely guilty of this as well. Oddly enough, i seemed to be the only one who thinks picks and prospects have little value in this game mode when you consider we'll only most likely be playing 4-6 seasons for NHL 13 and even Elite Prospects start out in the 60's.

I became weary that in about a month when the winners and the losers start to become more separated that people wouldn't want to stick with a losing team and they'll end up quitting. This isn't including the people who chose the Blue Jackets, Islanders, Coyotes etc...teams that you have to know a rebuild is necessary before you pick them. These people will probably stay regardless. But the guys who chose the average/good teams who trade away large chunks of their roster and either...

a) aren't very good at the game and get frustrated

b) simply get bored with the game mode and stop playing/quit


...well these guy's teams will have to be replaced. Are people really going to want to join a Connected league in December when they chose a team and the roster isn't even recognizable? When all the players they associate a team with are gone? When a team has gone from a Playoff Contender to a team in Rebuild? Everyone might as well be doing random rosters if thats the case. I've also seen A LOT of really bad/lopsided trades (again, guilty myself) that while seemingly fine to the GM's currently involved, might not be ok and might even be terrible for the next GM to pick up the team.

When i created this league almost 2 months ago, i had all of these things in mind. Now, 2 months removed from then, i've seen a lot, if not most of these HF Boards GM Leagues either terribly inactive or completely shut down. I wanted to make a league that was immune to these processes. That offered a realistic experience for everyone. That kept things fresh for all 30 GMs involved through offering challenges and consistency day in and day out.

Drop outs are inevitable. These leagues probably wont be as fun for the people who are in the bottom 10 and realize they'll be stuck there 30 games into the season. My goal with limiting trades is that so when people do drop out (which will happen) the new people who join will still have a team they are semi-familiar with instead of a fantasy roster with NHL jerseys. If people dont drop out and decide to stick it out, they'll be rewarded with higher draft picks (obviously) but they'll also be rewarded with time to see their high draft picks become useful NHL players due to the amount of games i'll be simming. This means that there is usually a constant influx/outflux of GMs to this league. Which in turn means that anyone on my reserve list is nearly guranteed a team in a very short period of time. I only want the most active GMs in my league of course so i'm constantly weeding out inactive GMs."

I didn't check.

I went back and forth between J. Staal and Skinner--but ultimately, I was worried that Staal's 4.0* rankings would drop his 86 down, whereas Skinner should go up.

Who knows. I have too many SNP now, and the smallest 1-2 center combination in the league (Roy-Skinner)

He signed at $7M, why couldn't you give him an offer :(

lol, ironically, he probably would have fit my team better as a TWF. oh well.

I think I signed an RFA from Washington. I'm not sure who. I just saw something flash about compensation.

I need a goalie

someone trade me a goalie

Ah but you miss the point. DiPietro is not intended to play goal, he is valuable as filling one of the 5 potential injury slots.

Jack de la Hoya 05-09-2013 09:42 PM

Point of clarification--the "no flipping" rule only applies to trade acquisitions, not free agents? (I thought I read it was both, but it only mentions trades in the rules, so I might be making that up.)

ArGarBarGar 05-09-2013 09:43 PM

Don't flip guys you just signed.

Very good.

Didn't plan to, but I just wanted to know whether I was supposed to mark them on my trading block.

BrownBeauty 05-09-2013 09:52 PM

Any spots officially opened? I sent a request for Calgary and Ottawa!

Wasnt sure if any of those were actually available!

What kind of contract did he sign?

I just assumed that you would offer him more than I could ($8.2).
