Let's say buffalo offers shanes doan 4 years 30 mil and the canucks offer him 2 years 12 million... He's not going to buffalo!!!! Lol... But in the game he would.

*Recruitment Problems*

It's the human element that they will never be able to create in a video game...

As far as I can tell each player has a desired term and dollar amount. Other things are supposed to sway the player but I haven't seen evidence of it. The further from the desired term, the more money it takes.

Haha. Just want to make you understand the rule that until we actually start up the league anyone can back out of a trade for any reason.

I'm allowing this because we don't know what will happen from now until the update rosters are up (trades etc.) and not all GM's will be as active now as they will once it starts.

Cool?

Oh yeah no obviously. I have no idea who would finalize a trade without seeing the final rankings Never too early to get some groundwork laid though.

Surprised no one has taken Florida. They have arguably the best prospect pool in the league.

For real dude. And in a sim league, that's a pretty big deal. I'm half-considering switching

Hi guys,

GT is dominiciscanadi is weird I know I gotta change it.

Add it and tell me who you are.

I'm the Habs GM.

Everyone on my team and in the organization can be had for the right price except these 5:

Carey Price
PK Subban
Max Pacioretty
Alex Galchenyuk
Nathan Beaulieu

I'm rebuilding so my wants are:
Offense: players under 23, draft picks, any.

Surplus: Garbage, all ages, any.

I won't trade my picks.

I'll join as a reserve.

I'm almost cried when I saw this league was full. I figured there won't be a lot of other leagues that are sim cause i'm terrible at games.

My gamertag is jarret10.

EDIT: I'll be Florida if available.

I got malkin on the block... Shoot me some offers. I need a very good winger, #2 center, and some good prospects coming back my way.

Since people are starting to talk trade, let it be known that Chicago is willing to part with anybody except Toews, Keith, and Seabrook. Kane would require a lot coming back. I need a #2 center, and possibly a goalie upgrade (just like the real Blackhawks!)
