I rejected all 3 trades for 1 reason alone, it caused 2 pages of arguing. I think its better to just have no AI trades for this reason.

I am totally against restarting. I have put too much work into rebuilding Calgary for a restart now. That would seriously piss me off.

In other news, signed Higgins, Now I have a complete forward lineup, will be looking at add a cheap depth d-man, but calgary is looking good.

Agreed. I've completely changed my roster... if we restart I might not even play. I don't see much point in restarting anyways, even if we do, we probably won't get more people, or we'll just get more guys who sign up and don't play.

I'm okay with my team as it is. I would like to sim some games to see how they do, so I'm going to wait until the first quarter of the season to table trade requests.

Still open to the Adam for Ference swap if that is still on the table though.

Ya I don't really want to restart. The AI teams will recover eventually and I really dont think starting a new league would get people to join anyways.

Did saskriders(Islanders) stop playing? Islanders only have 20 players on contracts and he let a few players go to free agency.

I saw them(Silfverberger) online last night. No idea what they were doing. Ticker told me when they signed out though, would've checked profile if I knew we had this question..

Might be gone, but still lurking!

When I asked Saskriders about Hamonic's availability he said he probably is dropping out. Might want to send him a PM to confirm since he does appear to answer them.

Yeah I don't see a restart solving our current issues, and we'll probably encounter another exodus at the first offseason anyway. It would be a different story if we had 10 people who offered to play but hate the teams they're left with, but that's simply not the case.

I do wish people would be a little more committed when things aren't perfect though. It's a 30 team league, not offline rookie mode. You're not going to win the Cup every year and get the first overall and acquire every player you covet. You'll develop good relationships with some GMs and good rivalries with others, and your team will actually be molded according to your vision. I want to see where we're at in 10 seasons. But that can't happen if a third of the league backs out every offseason.

This x10. This what i like about the league, its a challenge. Be a GM is easy without trying, this is the closest thing to being a real GM because its against real people and not moronic EA logic.

Rude. Desharnais chose Carolina for 400k less than what I offered him.

Who got the moves like Jagr and for how much?

For the record I got Bailey from the Isles. I didn't make any FA bids until like 10:55 and I was rushing to get them in before Benny simmed so I wasn't even thinking about which players were legit FAs. If a new player takes over the Isles and wants Bailey back, you can have him for a 7th or some useless scrub.

getting new xbox today got red ringed. Restart = bad agree with Moz. Btw people who are wondering why FA's choose other teams over you when they offer less look closely at the signing free agents option for the answer.

Yeah I havent seen him post here in a while, he used to post more than me.
It seemed to be right after his own league died that he stopped coming on here.

He had a random roster league, I was in.. the entire thing stopped at the trade deadline for over a week. Up until then he was simming 3 weeks at a time daily. I left it after there was nothing going on, I also wasn't a fan of the randomized roster thing.

He posted last night. I was in the random roster league as well. He was super active in both and then all of a sudden stopped everything. Must be a personal issue or something.

I got him? Sweet.

Since I got him, Jiri Tlusty is up for grabs now. I can trade you his rights for a pick or you can just send him contract offers as he is an RFA.

How about a sign and trade? I think I just used up any capspace I had left with my offer to Zubrus. Makes me feel stupid because I overpaid for Colby fuggin Armstrong. Totally bid against myself for no reason haha...though 2.4 million for a third liner could be worse I guess.

You want me to sign him and then we'll make a deal? Not sure if I have room to sign him after signing Desharnais. I signed Desharnais because he was cheaper than Tlusty but if you have a good offer, I'll see if I have space to sign Tlustly and give him to you.
