The rule goes into effect next season. Too many trades have been made that violate the rule.

alright this sounds good to me, it gives everyone a chance to ship out any unwanted players they acquired recently, before next season.

Also, i'll leave it up to the GM to decide if he wants the Yakupov deal or the Cammaleri deal. With the new rules Yakupov is free to be traded to anyone.

If there's any discussion left to be had about this (not sure why there would be) please bring it over to the Discussion/Signup thread. This thread is 50 posts away from 1000 and i dont have time or want to make a new thread right now. Going to go study.

Again, just to clarify...

-Cannot trade anyone recently traded for until 3 seasons after they were acquired unless they're a UFA the next season
-Franchise Player rule is out
-Move discussion to Discussion/Signup thread until tomorrow please

Thank you for the headache Blutch Company GMs.

You traded a top D prospect who's NHL ready and a young, powerful RW for a 31 year old 3rd line C and a solid D man, both who have huge contracts. It's such a step back and it makes no sense.

Fuss, I really agree with the premise of what you are saying: every team has players that are core guys, that should/would never be traded. This allows a team to maintain some identity and culture from season to season.

I also agree with what Stockey is saying as well, a short list of franchise players per team could be designated.

My question is, why does that core or culture of franchise players have to be the same as the NHL. Why can't that list be specialized for our league - as long as those players are not traded traded, teams get the chance to forge and maintain their own core.

Rule proposal:

- Every team creates a list of 3/4 (not sure which is better) players they are building their franchise around. These have to be great/elite players or really high end prospects.

- These designated core players cannot be traded under any circumstances.

- Every second year teams have the option of switching out 1 of their designated core for a different player on their team.

I like where you are going with that I currently have 7 and I know I will not move at least 4 of them probably 5 of them but I need to move 1-2 of them to better my team.

I sort of like this idea. It gets to what I was trying (but failing) to say the other day--cores change and evolve, so we can't simply take the current NHL and read it forward.

Exactly! And just because a player is great or even elite doesn't mean a GM is building around that guy, perhaps he doesn't fit his style.

The main thing is to have a core on each team that stays the same so that teams become recognizable.

Just to get the word out there to let all Gm's know these are some not all of the wild's players in play. If your not talking about a top 6 player don't bother requesting a trade.

Rielly
Setoguchi
Gilbert
Granlund (big maybe)


Pm your interests and i'll let you know if the ballpark is right.

Because the GMs are selecting the players for their own team.

Yeah, they have control over who they are trying to build around. And also, none of these players would be traded. The only way you could trade one of the guys on your core designated list would be wait 2 years and then switch him for a different player - a lot more straightforward and clear cut which could help out on all the drama/having to judge and shut down trades.. Could even make it 3 years.

The new Canadiens GM completes the rebranding of his team, getting rid of the last remnants of the undersized Gainey/Gauthier era by trading 35 year old Brian Gionta to the Leafs for John-Michael Liles. Also included in the trade is prospect Morgan Ellis in exchange for a 3rd.

Gorges-Subban
Ehrhoff-Despres
Liles-Komisarek

Tinordi-Weber

Well you guys have been making me pissy lately. The past two weeks for me have been studying for the last tests in all 4 of my classes, then studying for finals in all 4 of my classes, playing in the playoffs, dealing with the Bluth Offseason, and dealing with all these other issues in Bluth while studying every second inbetween.

I'm stressed and crabby. You all are going to have to deal with it for another 16 hours until i'm done with this semester.

Confirmed. Giving the Leafs a little Habs flavour. Also reuniting Gomer and Gio.
