There is no way to use updated rosters for GMC at the moment.

Regardless of what you pick (current, custom, default, etc.), it uses the same rosters. Perhaps this will change once real hockey begins again, but at the moment, it is purely hypothetical.

(I do think there would be a great deal of interest in starting another GMC--but I don't think we need to necessarily reboot this one).

I would be interested in restarting if you could have the new updated rosters, but i think we already figured out that you cant use them online for GMC. But im fine with taking some extra time to do a GM check.

I'd be 100% for it.. I haven't made a single trade in this league yet.. so nothing hurts me.

If we do do a reboot, can we consider the option of random rosters, kinda would like to try that out since most everybody is already in a fixed team league.

Interesting idea.

On the one hand, you're right. Most of the leagues are default, so most of us have played only with fixed teams. On the other hand, one of the reasons for starting a new mode would be to use the updated prospect OV / POT, which is more appealing when a prospect is connected to their proper team.

Absolutely no restart.

When and if new rosters come out and can be used in GMC I'd love to see a new league. But keep this going.

And activity check would be great, two more ree sign days ideal. My .02

I'd prefer to hit July 1 (or July 2 if that is UFA) tomorrow night (late), but have several scheduled breaks between now and then. So advance once tonight at 9:00 and again late night. Once tomorrow afternoon, then to frenzy. Something like that.

prospects are connecting to there team in random rosters anyways if there is no way of using updated roster for GM Connected I still wouldn't mind doing a random rosters league.

I didn't know that, but I guess it makes sense.

Random rosters are TERRIBLE. So many teams with absolutely nothing on their rosters.

Fuss jumped offline around 11:30. I suspect that, caught up in the Bluth playoffs, he might have forgotten to advance this puppy tonight.

seems to be the case. maybe we need someone to fill in for the fill-in.

as long as we don't advance THROUGH 3 blocks of resign, and yet advance TO each one with set times. whether throughout a whole day or within 12 hours, as long as the opportunity is there. You know, rather than go straight to free agent signings.

I'm a patient person, as long as the important stuff, like resign, isnt glossed over. especially considering a whole day was lost for no reason today.

you feel me?

After reading the Bluth playoff thread I can see how he got caught up and forgot. Just as long as he is able to advance early tomorrow.

I accidentally gave up one of my 84 overall defenseman because of that stupid buyout thing (which ended up giving me the buyout money back randomly so now I have the cap space to offer him a contract), so I am a little eager to get into free agency and use that cap space on somebody.

I think the problem is that there's a lot of GM's who likely haven't yet started to re-sign any of their players, so we're probably going to see an "Activity Check" shortly, and replace any GM's who have become inactive.

Go through contracts and take a look, it doesn't look awful, does it?

Activity check will be all of today. We'll resume the offseason on goings tomorrow just so we're sure GMs have enough time to sign their players.

are here.

Sensi, if you come on and see this, you might want to adjust the thread to note the "activity check"--unless our global mod member wants to use his powers for good?

EDIT: ChuckWoods ( ) is a bit crazed with work at the moment, but I believe he intends to return fully active next year.

Also, is traveling today, but I believe he is committed to the league going forward.

(I don't know whether either of these guys have gotten their contract offers in--if not, it is a problem, but if they have, don't take a failure to post here today as a sign they aren't interested).
