Starting backup goalie tomorrow. My backup is 1 above their EPA, but their defense is a 63 (mine is 75). Expecting my defense to shut down their 72 offense, and my 74 offense to dominate them. This is probably the only game worth playing my backup in the next 8 games or so, so it's worth putting him in, even though he played 3 games ago.

Has Nik responded to all the reset comments?

Edit: Is there a difference between baggage and "baggage?"

Is this a bad idea?

Bench this guy from my fourth line
http://trophyhockey.org/player.php?id=582761

so my possible future second line C can get some experience? His EPA is 56 on LW though...
http://trophyhockey.org/player.php?id=481082


If anyone has cap room to spare here's a good second line LW for the future.
http://trophyhockey.org/player.php?id=650069

And is there a way to get rid of FAs you signed this season?

Not to bad for the price.
I've done that (it's my third line not my fourth, but same idea). Problem I'm running into is that they don't score goals, so on the odd occasion they give one up their morale takes a hit and it's not going back up. Not sure if I should be worried about this trend.

I need an opinion on this possible trade.

This is the goalie I might get: http://trophyhockey.org/player.php?id=54918

His salary will cost me $4.3M

This is my current goalie: http://trophyhockey.org/player.php?id=578208

Do you think it's a significant upgrade? Will it be worth what I'll have to give up and the increased salary.

He is injured for 3 days. He isn't worth it.

Well I don't know, your current goalies reflexes aren't great at all, but he has way better stamina than the other dude. The other guy's goalie may put up better numbers during the season...but In the Playoffs, I'd rather have your current goalie.

I know he's injured now. He wasn't this morning, when me and the other gm started talking.

But are you saying he isn't worth it skill wise or because he's hurt now?

Never trade for any player that has an injury history.

That was my concern too, his stamina isn't real good.

I see your point. Is there a way to tell how often a guy is injured?

Difficult for goalies, but usually just check their stats from previous seasons. If a skater isn't playing 40 or 45 games on a regular basis, depending on which season is was, he's a gamble.

Im starting to get real tired of the ****** trade offers. I know I can just lock all my guys, but I leave it out there just incase ONE of them is half decent.

Like look, Im not trading you my young really good 22 year old defender for a 29 year old who has ****** skill stats and point stats, with 3 TVR less.... or even better a ****** 40 reflex 26 year old goalie.... these guys gotta be kidding me. Im not retarded or, Im not gonna slip and hit the trade button.

I got one from a Finnish 1.1 team yesterday where he offered me a 74 EPA LD for my 1st line LW who's great. The 74 LD was good, but I have 3 LD who are 75+, so there's no need to dump my 1st line LW for a guy who's gonna play 9 minutes per game, maybe 12 including PK time.

The guy has like 5 or 6 LWs at the same level as mine but younger and cheaper. I was considering offering up him for a LW that was about the same but is his 5th or 6th LW.

I put on a bid on: http://trophyhockey.org/player.php?id=49696

Forewarning anyone who may bid against me, I will go up to 4.5M for him.

Also, Phillyflu, what player are you trading to get that goalie? He should be a 85 EPA at 99/99 and is a significant upgrade over your current goalie. Also, your current goalie is young enough where being a backup won't tank his morale. It seems like the perfect situation assuming you don't give up too much to get him, then just don't resign that goalie next year and enjoy your automatic promotion this season.

I posted this in response to J.C. Murray in the Situation Report Thread:

Quote:
Here is the timeline:

1. Bad coaches start to lose and whine. Nik nukes the draft.
2. Bad coaches continue to lose and whine. Nik implements a strict budget to make teams cut expensive players.
3. Bad coaches continue to lose and whine. Nik implements an even stricter budget to make teams cut even more talent.
4. Bad coaches continue to lose and whine. Nik implements free agency allowing every team to rebuild itself, literally, from scratch.
5. Bad coaches continue to lose and whine. They beg Nik to reset the game so that maybe, through a computer drafting for them (since they obviously aren't good enough), they will have a decent team.

Nik has done so much to increase the parity of this game. He won me over with Free Agency and I am willing to give him a few more seasons with the draft and I am in absolutely full support of the direction that the economy is going (though it could use some tweaking here and there.) Nik has bent over backwards to help everyone have a shot at winning. I'm sorry, if you are still complaining about parity after Dec. 20th when even more Free Agents are available once the computer teams make their cuts, then you are just a horrible coach that has squandered every opportunity to be competitive.

Free Agency has been the great equalizer. Sure, it won't be as crazy next season but many teams will be cutting talent to get under budget so there will always be a solid crop of FAs. I know that I'll be cutting at least 3 players next season and replacing them with less talented once. In other words, the system will be working 100% as intended.

It will hurt but it won't kill him. Though you are getting what you pay for. He isn't going to be all that great.

I refused to let that ****** pick up this rookie purely out of spite.

I'll post what happens when he goes through his first training session.

I had a center with real good offensive stats (puck control, passing and deking) and thought he would be a good point producer on my 4th line. His 40 skating and work rate made him lazy and slow and he ended up averaging just north of a 5 rating for the year. It was very dissapointing.

Also, that guy's EPA is terrible and, other than faceoffs, has little redeeming qualities (remember: playmakers use skating and deking to open up space for themselves before they pass - as it is now he is a pylon in the offensive zone, imo)
