I have Kessel, Gardiner and Reimer at 4 and a half. Hopefully they all jump a little, and I have bunch more at 4 stars.

Toews is at 4.5 Star Green Potential. I'm wondering if he jumps up a few points too. I'm at school now so i cant advance. Also really busy studying for finals so my activity is going to be a little thinner than normal.

Take note though everyone, if the salary cap jumps up another $5 million, i'll have a Bluth Company Cap at aroud $77 million that will be enforced in full. GMs having an extra $6-$8 million in cap space than most people would guess the real NHL cap to be is not realistic at all.

Ugh, really? I mean you are right, of course, that the game cap will definitely be higher than the real-life cap would have been, but the salary demands are also higher. In real life, only a few superstar players command cap hits close to or north of $9 million. In the game, it isn't all that uncommon.

I dont know how much the cap will go up. Last year it went up $5 million though! If it goes up $5 mil/year then we're essentially playing in a league with "Cap Space Off". Managing the cap is a HUGE part of being a GM. I know players start asking for a lot more money but that "alot more money" should be covered in a $5 mil/cap jump. Besides, 90% of teams have no cap issues whatsoever AFAIK. Most teams have $10 mil + in space.

Going over the "Bluth Cap" will most likely result in that team forcefully giving away a 1st round pick or something of that value

If that's the case, could I make a suggestion? Why not use the extra space as the real-life offseason cushion? In other words, teams have to be at a certain level during the regular season, but can exceed the "Bluth" cap (up to the "real" cap) during the offseason.

Just a thought.

So just to confirm, the plan is to advance twice today:

- Once, this afternoon, from the end of the finals to the draft--thus enabling trades (and moving through the "progression" phase)

- Again, tonight at midnight, through the draft, the last opportunity to make trades before July 1.

That about right?

I was unaware that trades can be made at any point in the offseason so i didnt take that into account when i made my schedule.

-I'll allow trades to be submitted until 12am today
-Advance at 12am all the way PAST the draft to the 1st day of free agency
-At 12:05am today (after i advance) thats when the official 4 day period will start

Alright so I'm basically a moron.

This is what I understand and I think I'm wrong

At 2:30- fuss advances to just before draft day so you can make all your trades?

At 12:00 am he advances to a couple of days before July 1 to resign our players?

At 2:30ish i advance once. Then we can see our players increase in overalls as well as make any trades that inolve picks/prospects.

At 12am i advance PAST the draft, all the way to the first day teams can sign their own UFAs and RFAs

No player progression though, is that right? (Please tell me it is, otherwise, no one grew on the Rangers).

Perhaps that happens after June 21.

No, players only progress after the draft.

Ah. Thought it was before the draft, when retirements processed.

In that case, will be standing pat until after the draft.

Too many questions about existing players and too many free agents to pull the trigger on any deals.
