One question about the franchise player rule. The rule states that players on the list cannot be traded for 3 seasons, I have no problems with that what so ever. My only qualm is what about players who have been with their current team since the beginning of the league? Like Crosby, or Ovechkin or Toews etc.... they have been with their team for 4 seasons. Shouldn't they be allowed to move? (not like im going to move Crosby anyways)

Woo

Avalanche Sign F Brandon Dubinsky to Massive 1 Year, 12 Million dollar deal.

"We are excited to add a player of Duby's caliber to our lineup. We appreciate the depth of talent he brings to our core. It is only a 1 year deal so it is completely off the books next year, so we felt with 17 million in cap space it was worth making the offer."

Dubinsky had this to say:

IMMMM RICHHHHHH *****

If he is a 78 ovr LW then I did send him an offer. I basically went for the mid-tier guys because there were no good wingers available.

What happened with Dubinsky won't happen again. Free Agency needs to be fine tuned in this league

Min 2-3 year contracts would do it.

This just in: Phoenix GM in response to Brandon Dubinsky signing in Colorado.


"I'd like to place a personal bounty on the head of Brandon Dubinsky. He's the center and chief punk on that Colorado team. A hundred bucks of my own money to the first team that really nails that creep."

for sure. It was a good experiment. I guess it does go to highest bidder. What if the rule was, teams can only offer what the player is demanding in terms of salary as a max.

e.g. if player x is listed as wanting 5.3 million that is what he has to be offered max. thus the cpu can decide based on pure interest in teams

I'm thinking a league cap on salary offered based on overall. Something that changes depending on how much a player asks for.

Also thinking that GMs who sign guys to crazy 1 year deals can't sign them again until after July 1st to give everyone a fair shot

reasonable contracts it the way to go. any team that sends out an outlandish 1 yr contract will get penalized a 1st round pick. What do you think?

I got Carrozzi as a backup but San Jose GM, I think, forgot to accept the trade in the game so as of right now, I have 3 goalies in the 80s.

Hopefully he can get online and accept it before the next sim, which is in 7 minutes. I want my Leblanc!

Everyone would be more careful if it was minimum 2 year contract.

I don't think we should take 1 yr contracts out, only limit how much more you can go over a players asking price. Say 1mil?

I think this is the simplest rule. Creating a max. offer for each tier of OVs is too difficult to police, and also poses a significant disadvantage to teams with a ton of cap space.

If people have to sign UFAs to a 2-year minimum, it should bring a bit of realism to the process. Most UFA signings are multi-year deals, after all, particularly for any decent player (Semin being one notably exception that comes to mind).

Then Fuss needs to know exactly how much every player is asking for...and, again, it screws the teams that have cap space, limiting their ability to improve via free agency.

So no Leblanc for the first few games then I guess hehe. Do you know if you sim and it's not accepted... do I have to resend it again after the sim or does the trade offer stay in the system until he accepts?

Maybe there should be something with age too though? I signed Jagr, Malhotra, and Jovanovski to 1 year deals because I have no idea if they'll be getting worse next year (if they don't retire). Then a guy like Kyle Wellwood was signed purely for depth needs, but I don't want him locked into my team for more than one year. I think ruling out one year deals for a certain age and overall could be beneficial, but I don't like the idea of no one year deals in general.

Yeah, I mean there's no cap penalty if they retire, and I guess the argument would be that you need to take into account the possibility they might decline when gauging the value of the two year offer. Remember, everyone would be bound to it, so everyone would face the same concern.

As for guys like Wellwood, if you're signing them to less than 900k, it isn't going to have a big impact on your cap anyway--since there are likely some AHLers in your system already near that level, so you're basically just bumping someone else down the contract list--below whatever cutoff EA actually uses.

(I did the math last night. I could not figure out where the EA number came from--it wasn't my 23 largest contracts, which was always what I thought.)

EDIT: or an even simpler system: only allow 2 year offers during the first window. Allow one year offers beginning on the second window? This way, GMs have to make choices about who they are willing to commit money to for 2 years.

I agree 1 year deals for old players should be fine.

Why not amend it to say any 5 mil plus offers must be multi year
