Well i went after a couple of players you guys signed like Zajac and Hornqvist. But didnt think i would land them for some reason so went also to a couple other players.

keep in mind we have what 5 active GMs? Plus the fact that some of those 5 guys dont have a ton of cap space so some GMs cant even make a move to get someone.

Getzlaf and Zajac both had 4 others and they had the most i saw before the sim most were 1 or 2 maybe 3. When you have such a small window of GMs signing people clearly only a couple teams will make out.

To be honest we should have done a GM check booted the inactive guys then hit FA would have been slightly more realistic.

If I remember correctly you had what, $25 mil in cap? Not sure what you offered, but I could see it, since a lot of guys were looking for anything from mid 3s to low 5s. Most free agents I clicked on had NJ and/or EDM (and a few others in some cases) listed as teams interested. I kinda figured you two would end up with a lot of guys signing right off the bat.

Most I saw was 5 GMs on one guy (maybe Semin?) before I made any offers. Funny though with so few active GMs that I ended up with essentially no one. I made a lot of offers. Admittedly a good chunk were "kick the tires" kind of offers, but offers nonetheless. Plenty were good competitive offers. Maybe a bunch just haven't signed. But plenty of them all signed elsewhere. Maybe "inactivity" or cap space only played a minor role (to a certain degree) of where players ended up.

Who knows

I offered Zajac, Hornqvist, Kostitsyn, Aulie, Poulin, and Rask.

Clearly didnt get Zajac, or Hornqvist but got the rest. Now i just have to make a few more offers fill out my roster a little more.

Admittedly i wanted Zajac badly as he is my favorite Devil (well and Kovy) but Zajac was here first haha oh well gotta move on.

I agree. I wish we had thought of that beforehand. Makes me wonder how many will make it though this season.

Well we will. All the people who built there teams. But it will be hard to get people into the league with how much some of these teams have been destroyed.

GMs who didnt pay attention deserve what happened.

Okay, we have advanced. This sim brings us back to 2 week sims again, so we're mid-way through July.

Also, I think we have to have an ultimatum here.


I'm thinking something like any GM's that are still under the cap, not active, etc, need to respond to this within a week or be removed. Especially those under the cap and such, as that will completely screw over all active GM's who won't be able to play games against them.

What do you guys think?

anyone who doesn't check in here and promise to be active at least for the offseason should be booted. that'll at least allow those teams to sign what free agents are left and allow us to make trades with them.

Works for me

I have offers still out since people seem to not feel like playing in Phx.

Whats the plan for booting and then letting the computer go nuts? after next sim or before?

I say we give them a few days to respond at the least.

So...anyone reading this thread who's been inactive on the game, please comment here and let us know what's going on. If we don't hear by Friday night, I'd say it's time to start booting.

Here are the active teams I know of:

Edmonton
New Jersey
Calgary
Ottawa
San Jose
Winnipeg
Chicago
Dallas
L.A.
Phoenix
Penguins
Toronto

If I'm missing anyone, I apologize. Please quote this post and respond so I can update active players.

Thanks!
