It's simple, let's just say I do a week opt. So I play Buffalo, Carolina and Washington, I have any amount of time to play these guys in any amount of time. Although I will have a time limit, where if games aren't played, you are able to fix up for AI, set up team strategies (1-3-1, Crash The Net, etc) save it, and when your game gets simmed, you will feel confident against your opponent.

I'm just thinking with around 30 guys it's going to be almost impossible for everyone to get on the same schedule and play at the same time.

So basically if my opponents never get online at the same time as I am then those games will just get simulated?
Well, this is why I want this league to be active. I have multiple friends in real life who would be down for this league, as well as a waiting list for people to join the league as GM's.

I am expecting you guys to be somewhat active, and if you are gone from your console or busy with work etc, I can sympathize, I am a WHL/BCHL scout, so activity might be a challenege, but I will try my best for sure for this to be as active as possible. I know both Co-Commsioners in real life and any concerns/questions could be answered by them if they are gone, if you are gone, let me know about it, please.

"7. Free agency includes both unrestricted and restricted free agents, and it's handled via seven bidding periods. The highest bidders win the services of the player, and if you strike out you have several more rounds to find an adequate replacement."

A few questions:

Are there going to be offer sheets?

Are RFAs going to be exactly like UFAs? Do teams retain the rights to negotiate with an RFA before other teams? Or do they go straight to the auction and basically ignore the RFA process? If so, this puts young teams at a significant disadvantage IMO.

Oh I'll definitely be active and get on several times a week. I just hope everyone else is because I've seen these things before with other games. Everyone talks a big game like they really want to play and then they never get on.

1. Yes, they're will be offer sheets.
2. RFA's can be offered contracts, it would depend on how substantial the offer is. Most GM's should want to qualify big names for RFA's, if you don't it's not my problem. Just be prepared to match an outstanding contract.

Are you both the same people?

And the reasoning you were taken off because you didn't respond quick enough.

I'll put both of you on the waiting list.

I clearly said in the other thread if 2 GM games are allowed I can play in that other one too. I didn't confirm it . I'm still Boston in this game. Now go away and stops tying to steal my team.

Thought I should bump this now that we're closing in on the beginning.

Rumor has it that I've got Luongo on the trade block.
