HFOIL Mock Entry Draft Game 2009

HFOIL MOCK DRAFT GAME '09

Commissioners: Soli and -Ryan-

Welcome GMs. I direct you to the section in the CBA detailing the rules and etiquette for this years (Mock) Entry Draft:

Collective Bargaining Agreement - Section: (Mock) Entry Draft

This is the Entry Draft for the draft class of '09.

The start of the Entry Draft will be May 1st. Trading will be allowed on April 24th till the end of the Draft.

30 GMs will each manage their own franchise through 5 rounds. Additional round will be added based on interest at the end of the 5th round.

Once assuming the GM position of a franchise, use your first post to setup your draft headquarters. Your Draft HQ will be linked to your franchise in the signup sheet, so it's fairly important. This post should be used to list your draft picks for the 2009 draft (and whom you draft with those picks as that information becomes available), your starting roster for 2010, trades you may have made, and your direction for the offseason.

Trades are allowed. The cap will be increased to 10% of the current cap, making the cap ceiling this offseason $62.37 million. All trade will go through both Soli and -Ryan- for cap approval. We will be using nhlnumbers.com for our caphit reference.

Regarding UFAs and RFAs – You cannot sign a UFA or an RFA to a contract. In building your rosters for the upcoming season, you may use their last caphit as a marker for their share in your cap space. At the end of the game, a jury of your peers will determine whether or not the UFAs on your roster are feasible and realistic based on their contract, your capspace, and general discretion. As it is, UFAs shouldn’t hold very much value in trades.

Familiarize yourself with your franchises draft picks that they may have acquired or may have moved in prior trades. A very good site for this can be found here. (Thanks to The Head Crusher!). If picks that you hold have built in conditions that are confusing or unclear or undetermined as of yet, post and we shall determine as a group.

Each GM on the clock will have 10 hours to make their draft selection. After time has elapsed, your pick will be made by your fellow GMs. Please PM the next GM in the draft order after you make your selection.

Any GM that misses two selections will be removed from their franchise. A new GM shall be assigned to the franchise.

The Draft Order is based upon the '08-'09 standings. 1 - 14 have been established and 15 - 30 will be determined through the playoffs till the beginning of the draft. Franchises that are still in the playoffs at the start of the game will be positioned by points in the regular season.

Enjoy your work GMs. If the Trade Deadline Game is any indication, all the participants should enjoy themselves thoroughly.
