Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have him on my team. He just doesn't fit into my budget. Because I'm stuck in 3.1 for what looks like it may be 2 or 3 seasons, I'm focused 100% on bang for my buck.

One of the biggest difference to me between TM and TH in terms of Free Agency which causes a lot of sniping frustration is the way the deadlines are calculated because of the different systems.

Allowing automated bids may be sufficient for now with a smaller user base but something else will need to be thought up later.

I like the transfer system in TM. I can buy and sell players as I please. In fact, the entire economy in TM is very well done.

I think of TM like this. It's a economy game with a soccer theme. If you can't master the economy, you will not succeed. Period.

How long does it take a player to get back to a respectable level of FIT from 49? I'm itching to get OPV in my lineup so I can stop playing a d-man as my #4 LW.

The transfer system for TM works very well, but it would not work in TH. We would be trying to blend things in a way that, it seems to me at least, that they cannot be blended.

What makes Free Agency work in real life is that players have biases, standards, and expectations about the team that's signing them. Right now we have none of that, it's just who offers the most money. Long term it's not a realistic view on Free Agency and thus will run into problems.

Not 2 million. Look at his past stats. He's played forever and never scored 10 points. He's a good defensive player but not great. If you going to pay a player 2 million for defense and no more than 10-15 points he better be a dominant defensive player.

For example, here are 2 guys I have that are good defenders. The first being worse than your guy on D the second being better. Look at their salaries.

Team reputation needs to have more of an impact on how much a player would require of a team to play for them... also, certain players (Perhaps a new hidden trait?) should refuse to play for teams that didn't make the playoffs in the past x years.

****, yeah I see. It just sucks because I've been looking for the past 40 years to find a GOOD positional LW player. I'm looking at all these guys but I can't decide if I should even bother:

http://trophyhockey.org/player.php?id=51219
http://trophyhockey.org/player.php?id=358266
http://trophyhockey.org/player.php?id=49363

None of them are even that good, and it sucks because this is the only thing I need to complete my team and it's the only **** on the FA market. Should I go after any specifics?

ANYONE have any good positional LW up for trade? I'd be so down, don't give a **** how old they are.

I'd pay him $2m and he'd score 40 points next to Dohn. He just needs to be plugged into an offensive system that allows him to succeed by giving him time on ice as well as good linemates.

I might even go $2.5 on him, despite his subpar puck control, in order to secure his services for less next year, if he ended up asking for less.

Just a heads up because I don't know if you meant that you're going to bid on him, I don't do the "don't bid on him" thing so if you want to you can. I think I'll just throw down my 2 mil just to do so.

They gain 8 fit per training session unless you have them training stamina, then it's 4 per session. Once he's back at 60 or whatever it is that lets him play it's 4 per session no matter what.

Just make sure when he comes back to fice him very limited icetime. I've notes that when players are between 60-70 fitness, they get injured a lot and when they do, their fitness goes in the tank. I've had a guy get hurt for 2 days and lose 30 fitness from like 65. Pretty much done for the year.

I read that in some random thread on the TH forums. Wasn't looking for that bit of info, but I filed it away anyway since it seemed useful.

I'll probably start him on the fourth line until he's got about 75-80 FIT then just work him up the right side of my offensive lines, then probably settle him in on the PP once he's at 90.

Iffy. I'd say it's even, but I like Rapier's performance more. And now you have to change your stadium name.

Highway robbery on your part. You got a cheaper, younger, better goalie. Hopefully his stats aren't indicative of having some poor hidden trait, though.

Yea I think he just didn't play good because of his teams tactics also I looked over their roster they only have two or three good Dmen. The stat difference is why I made the trade. My new goalie has a +9 Ref +12 glove -1 stick +3 Left leg and +2 right leg difference. Although he is -11 on recovery.

You dominate that trade. The only reason Rapier has a higher avg is because of Strength and Distribution which are both completely useless for goalies. You traded for a younger goalie who is better already and will top out at 87 EPA. I dont know what would make these guys think you didnt rob that guy. Game stats for a goalie are largely due to the team, this guy will 100% outperform Rapier within a year or two when his routine gets higher. He'll be at the magical 25 routine by the time he's 23 and then you have a stud for 10 seasons.

Should I switch my 2nd and 3rd lines? Rutherford is hurt by the way and he's a 78 EPA at 99/99.
