Just saying.
I would say since we're in the 'EA World'... that likely, trades should be judged at least on the surface by overall ratings (maybe even institute a minimum % you need to be within for it to be considered 'fair').... and picks (if they're available... anyone know if this is a 'dynasty' or single season mode?) would count little to nothing and be there mostly for flavour as even in a dynasty setting I doubt we'd get much further than 2 or 3 seasons before a large number dropped out due to attrition.

Still, even based on what you said it's still lopsided.

Not really right now Lu is the 6th highest rated goaltender in the league(by EA ratings) and he's locked up for a long time.I'll think about it but I need something good coming back. Something good.

No trades will be made official until the league has begun. You can discuss trades now, but no trade is done until it is completed in the game.

Drafting will be the same as a regular league. Potential will most likely be randomized or something.

It's hard to know more until the game actually comes out.

You spend the whole season scouting as normal in past titles, from what I can tell. However, the drafting process isn't the same because it would cause problems if you needed to have all 30 GM's on at once and it would also take forever to get through 7 rounds.

Instead, each GM writes up a shortlist of prospects they want to draft. For example, if you're the Ottawa Senators and you have the 14th overall pick in the draft, whoever is first on your shortlist will be automatically drafted to your team. However, if the prospect that is on the top of your shortlist is drafted before your pick, your team will automatically draft the 2nd prospect on your list. So on and so forth.

I'm interested in a player of yours (not the top 4) and I think we can get a deal done when the game is up and running.

I know it's inter divisional but I doubt what I'm thinking will bite us. And will help a weakness for you.

Is it Shawn Horcoff

Cause I know how much you said you wanted a 3C.

Also if you had Sami Salo I would've traded for him.

But seriously PM me the offer and we can negotiate.

Yuck, I hate doing this guys but my schedule for the foreseeable future just got a lot fuller. I really don't think I would be able to regularly make time to play all the online games required for this league. I think many of my games would be played against the computer.

I know everyone hates the Leafs, but if any of the waiting list people want to take over the Leafs in the league I would be more than willing to hand them over.
