I think there is supposed to be some sort of in-game bidding system for free agents. not sure whether 2012 free agents are included in that though.
yeah, did some googling and it looks like there's a sort of iterative bidding system for FA's. At the very least I think we should wait till someone has the game to confirm before anyone is able to start bidding on any FA's. A guy like Doan is someone who I'm sure would command a lot of interest just as an example, so it's not fair to do FA's as a throw away thing until we have a system in place.
Now to reply to the offers in the PM's and get caught up on the big movers and who is on the table. Right now, I am in a win-now mode and a lot of prospects (including Fowler, DSM and others are on the market).
I hope I'm not the only one who might be taking this a bit too seriously.
I'm throwing out tons of offers, keep checking trade blocks, keep filling out potential lineups.
But, it's a lot of fun already. Can't wait to start the actual games.
You're not alone Heck, it's 2 AM over here , but at least I've accomplished a good trade tonight, that makes it worth it (I think). Now to get some sleep, or the mother of my two weeks old son won't be happy with me tomorrow when I'm sleeping late while she takes care of the wee man .

reports from predators management is captain shea weber's days in nashville are numbered. It is said that by the end of the weekend he will be gone. General manager bernard has said he wants to build around goalie pekka rinne and let it be known he would listen to offers for weber. What started as montreal calling with an offer soon turned into a flurry of offers. The other main teams sending offers are anaheim, edmonton, phoenix and boston. Names being thrown around for weber include milan lucic, oliver eckman-larsson, bobby ryan and more. Nashville has said they would like offense and defense coming back there way and some players with start power that could help revitalize the team and fan base.
