If any changes are made, it would be the removal of the Regular Season and Injury trades.
I would be all for the removal of the injury trade, not so sure about the regular season trade. 3 trades seems like a solid number. Just off the top of my head, for the 2011-12 offseason to the season Blackhawks had 3 trades (Brouwer, Morrison, Oduya), which seems to be a pretty typical number. 3 trades would seem like a lot if it's always 1st line players getting traded, but if some of the trades are being used to acquire a 2nd pairing d-man or a penalty killing forward, it doesn't seem like as much.

As per WSH GM: "It goes up while in the middle of a game, and then goes back to 0% upon completion of the game"

In GM Connected its usually, if not always, 1st line players being moved. 3 trades, thats potentially 12 roster players being moved around in one season..THAT never happens in real life.

From now on, your DNF vs CPU is never allowed to be higher than 0%. If this happens, you'll be given 1 warning. After that warning, i'll kick you from the league again, resetting your DNF vs CPU back to 0%. If it goes above 0% again, you lose the privilege to play CPU games for the rest of the season. If your DNF vs CPU goes above 0% at any point after that, you'll lose the ability to play CPU games for as long as your in The Bluth Company.
does your DNF % go up if you lose internet connection mid game? JW

I think it's on the right track but I think the trade deadline move is the one that has gotta go.

Really what you are looking at is 1 trade during the season and 1 trade in the offseason. I'd rather have the flexibility of making that trade whenever I want during the regular season than having to make it at the deadline.

I kind of like the way it is now with Deadline Move, Draft Day Trade, Reg Season and Injury Trade. It's not as easy to trade especially when you got an injury without over paying. In real life there's always superstars being rumored to be traded but we hardly see it here. Our trade thread has slowed down immensely lol

Getting rid of the regular season trade would be a horrible idea. There are many examples of teams making moves before the trade deadline, I did it last year, and sometimes teams need to make a trade to potentially save their season. The deadline is too far into the season for teams to have a chance to make a move before they're completely out of it.

In a way the deadline deal is like an injury trade.. At the deadline you know if you have a guy injured long term going into the playoffs, and you can make a deal to replace that player

Therefore i agree that the injury trade should be removed

Injury trade - I like having it, but wouldn't care if it was removed...

But the regular season trade absolutely must stay.

I also like deking on breakaways but that wasn't gonna happen against you

And I can't shoot low or else I will probably be accused of "rebound glitching"

I like the amount of trades we have now, everyone in this league is pretty vigilant about calling out bad trades. I don't think any team has lost to much of its identity yet which is what you want to avoid in leagues like this.

agreed! If he trades crosby next im going to go nuts, already trading Malkin wasn't the greatest idea. Trading Crosby, Malkin and Sutter would be so dumb. I dont care how many assets you get NO ONE should TRADE BOTH CROSBY AND MALKIN.
