No matter, there was only one trade I made that I actually loved, I'll just have to renegotiate it again.

I'm excited for GM Brain for sure, but with 30 GMs, we're not going to see it in our GM Connected.

If we didn't already have 30, I'd be interested to see how well GM Brain does against 29 random humans lol.

Yeah I meant more the way you do stuff now like in our gm and how you can see player ratings and what not.

I'm exxtremely excited for the offline as well.

Not sure yet. Maybe limit one player making over a certain amount in the minors. Might not be enough though. With all 30 teams looking to get an edge then every team will be doing this in order to sign players.

Maybe if a player making of 2M is sent to the minors he must be bought out at the end of the season?

I dunno.

How about no player above the age of 25 making over 2 mill can be sent down. so I traded for gomez. I wouldn't be allowed to send him down. But someone like Tim erixon who makes 1.75 mill per year and I know is below 25 i'm not sure his actual age as of right now can be sent down.

I say just let free agency be the way the game has it. It's not like everyone will be able to retain all their top players. I also think that it's more about making trades you know. If a team can't resign a star player in that one week window before free agency starts then he is free game for anyone. But if they are able to let teams resign whoever they want in that week before free agency starts thing.

Just make sure no one is above or below the cap floor/ceiling.

That's really tough. I'm not sure specific blanket rules can be established for these sorts of situations. For example, a prospect-heavy team may need to sign a ton of veterans to fill the roster - and if that team is a bad team/small market etc, they may have to overpay even for the AHL caliber guys. I know I definitely don't like the AHL fill-ins the CPU always seems to give me. IMO it's just too hard to account for all situations with rules. On the other hand it's pretty obvious when someone is trying to exploit the system, so easy to blow the whistle if you're paying attention.

Add me in if there's room, I'm a very active member and will cause a lot of movement trade-wise.

There's nothing holding you back from that. Half of the previously agreed upon trades will probably still happen, just nothing can become official until our season starts, and it might be beneficial for you to wait on all possible offers.

Yeah that's basically what i'm saying. We don't have to be so inactive. We can still stay a little active while we count down the days until NHL comes out.

it's fun to discuss offers and what not.

Yeah, but without the real trades there isn't really anything to discuss in the actual thread, just in messages,

I know it just seems like nothing is going on or it's because i'm not being pm'd with offers. I guess no one is interested in any of my players which, now that I think about it is a very realistic thought lol

Not that i'm not interested in others players, but personally Im waiting a little closer to release before swinging anything major.

Not to say I won't listen to offers and perhaps bite on something juicy.

Same here. I'd like to know some updated rankings so I don't do something stupid
