I know there's no trading yet but the games almost out and I'm bored.
PA Parenteau is technically a 1st line RW

Except for the fact that Parenteau is on Colorado now.

No prob, it'll just have to be a three-way deal. Avs give up Parenteau and Landeskog, I get Malkin, that's it, everybody wins, NBD.

So how is the league going to start? Do we get an invite or something?

You should do an activity check to see if everyone is still committed.

Yea. I'm expected to have a few spots open to give out. We also need to figure out whether we are going with the first roster update that is out now or wait until the next one/find out when that is.

Don't matter to me when we start. It's a sim league anyways so we can plow through seasons pretty quick. But the roster update may take a while if there's a lockout. Which looks likely.

I'd say go with the opening day roster update and start as soon as we've confirmed activity. I'll likely post my trade block tonight for the Isles.

Well, we have some issues we need to sort out. I'm opening discussion for everyone to resolve them. I've only messed around a bit and only with myself in a GM Connected league but we have a serious issue.

There does not appear to be a way to know whether or not a game was simmed or played. This is obviously a problem. Right now all that I have thought up to counteract this is to turn the period length up to 20 minutes, put it on superstar, and hardcore settings. This at least makes it hard for a team to win against the computer if they decided to take advantage of it. However, if two users play each other and decide to manipulate games like this, I'm not sure how to stop this.

Please, everyone start up some GM Connected test leagues and mess around with options and whatever else. We need to find out anything that needs resolved before we start it up. I don't want to be a couple seasons in and have to restart.

I also don't see an option to re-do a game if there is some sort of cheating involved.

Well hopefully they revamp it, because this is semi undoable for a sim league

Not that sure if I understand the issue, but from what I understand, let's just hope we have an honest group of GM's who sim and don't play their games.

That's strange, im pretty busy tonight with a ball tournament but I'll play around with it tomorrow. But I was under the assumption that the commish of the league would choose how the league is played.

Looks like I have more free time this year then I had thought.

Well, I looked at my roster for NYI. I need a moment to collect myself before I start looking at the top three of this year's draft.

Seriously though, I was going to post a trade block but it's almost easier just to post who's not available. I don't even have enough real NHL players to ice a team and send Nino Niederreiter (who sucks anyway) to juniors. I have like 1 good prospect (Griffin Reinhart, who is untouchable because he has the most epic name ever) and like five good players. Will definitely need that opening UFA period Even crappy vets will be of huge benefit to me (to sign, not to trade for).

I expect to lose a lot of games

Anyway, here's some trade block info:
Unavailable: Tavares, Grabner, Okposo, Moulson, Hamonic, Reinhart
Actively Shopping: Reasoner, Jurcina, Pandolfo, Landry, Riley, Graham, Leduc
Needs: NYI LW, C, RW, D; BRP LW, C, RW, D
Draft Picks: Probably not available, though will entertain offers

I would love to be added as a reserve. My post count might not inspire confidence in my activity but I play alot and simming through GM mode is my favourite mode. Obviously willing to take any team, and I assure you I'll be an active part of the league.

My gamertag is explodedbox, thanks!
