Yeah I must not have read it.

I approved the trade back.

Going forwards, if we can just say "hey dont claim this guy" everytime someone good goes down, why dont we just turn waivers off?

This is getting ridiculous. Schlemko is exactly the type of player who goes on waivers. It looks like you got some pretty good D and he is on the bottom pairing at best. Never been drafted. 26 Years old and is likely as good as he is gonna get. 77OVR 3.5 stars with less than 200 games played.

He is a fringe NHLer on a team with a good D. If players like that cant get picked up off waivers than we should just turn them off. Whats the point?

I cant remember the last time I saw a guy that was any good get claimed where someone didnt get him back. I dont mind having to trade him back, i just think this hybrid rule is getting out of hand.

I understand when guys like Bogosian and Ryan Miller go on waivers that it was just EA being stupid. (I actually saw this in other leagues). Guys like Schlemko are what waivers are for.

Anyways I have traded him back and am done ranting. Will be online for a bit tonight to play if anyone needs to play before the sim. Still havent tried out Malkin and Ovi on the same line

This is the only issue I have with it. It takes away your choice on who to send down. I picked up nash, needed cap room, and the cpu choose to send schlemko who is a usefull cheap backup instead of dead weight like jones and his 4 million price tag

I'm not letting other people say "don't claim X." You may recall the chaos that there was with players going on waivers that people never put on waivers. Guys that the game did automatically.

When I sim forward, certain people are already on waivers. Naturally, people can't make roster moves while the sim is processing, so it's safe to assume that these are the guys that the GM's never intended to put on waivers. These are the only guys that I'm not allowing to be claimed.

Gustav Nyquist was one great example of this. Nyquist is pretty good now, and may become even a superstar before the league ends. This is why I have the list.

I don't want to remove waivers altogether, and in some cases you WANT guys to be claimed. We'll try out the list.

Sim in 4 hours.

Why don't you go ahead and take Nashville, then. I'm working with a few others to try to rescue a current league, so if there is someone else on the waiting list, I'd prefer they get the nod.

Zetterberg, if you don't mind keeping me on the waiting list for the moment, in case another opening occurs, I'd be obliged.

You're really too nice. You remind me of someone else I know who traded for a player he wanted, but lopsided the deal against himself because the other guy had a crap team and he didn't want the other guy to not enjoy himself because of his bad team.

I'll let him in, but next time, you take the friggin' opening!

Really?! Nashville/GiantK is getting kicked?! Damn... That sucks it makes a lot of sense not but still sucks haha. I negotiated a deal with him that would get me (SJS) Rinne but I had little cap room so I did another trade that I was hesitant on in order to accommodate it. The second deal was accepted and approved however Nashville would never accept my deal (which he proposed to me). With him being kicked I now understand why he never accepted it... I sent the roposal 3 different times and he would reply to me on Xbox when we spoke but would never accept the darn thing...

So now I lost a player I liked for no reason.... I mean I got a good return but I would have prefered to keep him had I known this was going to happen.

Im not demanding I get Rinne or anything like that. I know that its not another GM's fault that I messed up. I also know that it is bad to make deals that are dependent on others so I screwed that up. Oh well, I would have loved Rinne and maybe I can negotiate with the new GM. So far Niemi has been doing very well so I have no complaints.

He missed 2 activity checks. Considering that I post it here and in the league (usually 2-3 times in the league over the course of 2 days), seems to me that he wasn't around.

It sucks, but not much can be done.

Wisniewski is on the block for some forward depth. he is a 29 and 83 D. im open to all trades either me adding or who ever wants him adding to get something done. looking for forwards, unless the trade is big enough i would throw in boyle and get an average D back in the process.
