Well, as long as he is under it by the start of the season, it is fine, right?

I've never seen that before though. I always thought that the system would not allow you to sign someone if you didn't have enough cap space--but perhaps it can't distinguish / deal with simultaneous offers?

I stated pretty clearly (and Fuss should know me well enough to believe) that I did not expect this situation in the least. I had 4 mil in cap space to spend and wanted some depth players, did not want 10 or so of them though. Also, most of these guys are on two way contracts, so I'll be able to get under the cap by sending them to the A when the season starts.

I'll happily trade any of the guys I signed plus a 7th for a 7th in return if anyone wants them at any point this season.

The Commish is currently $4 million over the cap. I didn't know that EA would just let me sign as many guys as i wanted to. Apparantly i could have signed as many Free Agents as i wanted to. I wonder what happens when the season starts and i go over the cap?

Nonetheless it isn't fair for me to hog free agents. Santorelli and David Jones can be had for a 7th rounder. First team (s) to ask can have them.

I'm sure the Montreal situation can't be blamed on the GM. I'm pretty sure we all fired off more offers than we had cap for under the assumption players only sign if u have room, I know I did anyways.

Why not just wait and put them through waivers. (Turn waivers on for the first regular season advance).

That seems more fair than giving them to the first person who asks, no? That way, EA can sort out who gets them.

I have insane center depth now, I'm kind of tempted to run centers of Steckel-Konopka-Smithson-Mayers (all 80s+ in FO) and surround them with talent and see how many faceoffs I lose (I'm guessing very few). But I won't do that, because that'd make me a *********.

Already stated publicly but also PM'd DoubleK with a list of guys he can have for a 7th because of EA's boneheadedness. Interested what the punishment will be (if any) when the season starts.

edit: JdlH's idea for dumping some of these guys if they're wanted is a great one.

I know I offered more contracts than I had cap room for, but I did so under the assumption that there was no way I'd get all of them. In the end, I got turned down by Connolly, Vokoun, and Pitkanen and only signed Carcillo (my Matt Cooke replacement), Zanon, and Madden. So I don't see how any blame could be placed on the GM. It's not like the real NHL where you can rescind an offer if you signed someone.
