Oh yea absolutely agree. For example I am pretty sure Radulov is still property of Nashville so he will have to be traded.

By "number" are you referring to a player's overall rating? And you mean trades agreed to before the league starts up?

Good call, putting that in OP.

Montreal trades Tomas Plekanec to Chicago for Brandon Saad, Kyle Beach, Michael Frolik and a 2013 5th round draft pick.

Deal is contingent on Pleks not getting traded IRL and the Hawks not acquiring a #2nd line center IRL.

Please note I am allowing teams to keep deals agreed private. However, If you'd like you can post it here.

You can announce deals, you can keep them secretive. I allowed Montreal to announce ours because I want teams to know what I'm working with, no longer really needing a 2nd line center.

I daresay Stockey's trade block may have already unofficially announced your deal.

If you wish to announce your deal I have added a sheet to the google doc where these can be displayed.

I think we should institute a cap floor. This would deter teams from icing **** teams to get 1st overalls. We will have to wait on the CBA to figure this out though.

If the cap is on in the game, the cap floor will be on too. In past years, if you're under the cap, it automatically raises your players' salaries to meet the floor (and then some), so if you have a young guy on a team-friendly contract, you get screwed.

Cap floor is already in the game. Don't forget there's like a lottery.

Honestly there's no point in tanking if you can't develop your players. I don't think there should be a floor.

I don't want to shell out cash and take away icetime from my young guys because I'm below the floor.

And there's DET and PHX with like 45M in cap space. I don't think it's fair to force them to take on useless crap, when their lineups are basically set.

I'm not close to the cap, and I hate Gomez, I don't want him up in the NHL.

Can I bury him in the minors ? I can replace his spot easily.


Also if you need cap space let me know we can work something out.
