THEN I thought maybe I could boost my top 6... but my top 6 is Voracek, Simmonds, Read, Hartnell, Giroux, Briere... lol Schenn, Couturier and Talbot make up my 3rd line.

I can't see what trade I could do to make this team better... it's already so stacked.

I'm afraid though they won't develop from season to season if they're stuck in the bottom 6.
I was gonna propose a deal returning Gagne(86) to Philly but you have only young guys. It's perfect for me but doubt you'd want vets for young guys of slightly less overall.

I'm okay with it. We just need another one of Pine, Crimson or Le Tricolore to give it the green light.

I think I'll just make a trade thread as well. Makes it less cluttered. No way will I do a rosters thread, that's too much.

It'll be interesting to see what Couturier's potential is set at. I dunno about making any trades with prospects before I see their potential.

1 thread for: league discussion, match discussions, scheduling discussions, rules discussions etc.

1 thread for: roster discussions, trade discussions, salary discussion, free agency/draft discussion etc.

Anything hockey operations goes in roster thread, anything game/league related goes in 1st thread?

Pretty much how I feel as well. Some I just gotta get a market for. I got Quick and Bernier in LA. I know Bernier should be moved so I'll see.

Is there actually a salary cap? That would be sweet, but something gives me the feeling there wont be.

Anyway, again, I'm looking for bottom-6 forwards and bottom pairing defenseman.

Anyone have something for sale?

By hockey operations you mean transactions then yes. 1 will discuss the league itself and opponents. The other will discuss the wheeling and dealing.

I believe there will be. If it's an option it will be selected.

Agreed for both of what you guys said, but knowing that Couts would be fighting for 3rd/4th line center duties, I felt one of him or Schenn were expendable. Calculated risk. I see him becoming a fine 2nd line center behind Backstrom in Washington, and hope I have the same in Schenn.

They said they're taking the GM experience online, so I'm guessing this means:

Salary cap, RFA/UFA/offersheets, free agency, draft and moving players/prospects from Junior/AHL/NHL. It would be backwards logic to disallow these features when they're allowed in the offline version.

I'm so offersheeting somebody just for fun.

What if one of the players traded in this thread gets traded in real life before the season starts?

If I trade Schneider in the game and Luongo gets traded in real life, then I'm ****ed.

I've asked before, I'll ask again. Officially, does ANYONE have an issue with 2vs1? You are allowed to say No.

IF everyone agrees we'll talk details.

After seeing the ratings, I'm still interested in Burrows, but you would have to add since they decided to really overate Derek Roy.

100% fine with me. I don't care if someone played 6s vs just me. Doesn't really matter. It's just for fun.

From the sounds of it, we are going to wait until first patch. So if you'd probably just be SOL lol.

Just make Toronto overpay for Luongo.

The rosters take a while to update. I don't think you have a problem. That being said, should we wait for roster patches, I would HIGHLY suggest you keep both of them until the league starts.

I really like the idea of waiting for the first patch.

It'll sort out all the RFA's, contracts, NCAA players who make the jump, etc.

Maybe we could make a vs league for fun until the patch comes out to get some practice in.

Trade effectively gets cancelled since you can't trade a player who isn't on your team anymore... lol.

Also I'm putting together a spreadsheet with all the players and their overalls, and now I think I'll add their cap hit information from capgeek if I have time.

You misunderstood. He said he trades schneider and then luongo gets traded. At that point he's got 1 goalie in game and the trade can still happen. It makes things complicated for sure.

If he traded Schneider before we started and then Vancouver trades Luongo, I guess he'd be going to war with Eddie Lack.

ohhhh, good question.

If I was trading with him and he sent Schneider my way, and they trade Luongo before beginning of the season, I'd cancel the trade and send Schneider back. Just seems like such an extraordinary thing that no one has control over. Till the league is actually started (post patch?), these extraordinary trades would be subject to "special treatment" (if it was just up to me of course).
