waivers are so pointless in this terrible beta product. please shut them off.

neuvirth and many others are most likely unintentionally on waivers. again shut them off.

thats an option some leagues have done I think, i'd be open to discussing it. i'll try to put a poll up if i can figure out how

so long as GMs look ahead to when their players will return from injury, and extra players they get in trades, and leave roster spots open for those players, they should be okay, but if they don't the cpu will make choices for them, and poor ones at that.

yes there's a lot of guys on waivers unintentionally, but GMs need to make sure they have roster space for incoming players via trade, free agency, waivers, or injury reserve. If we turn off waivers, there's teams that would be able to stash players in the minors who would normally be claimed off of waivers.

Would turning waivers off before each sim (and turning them back on after) fix this situation? I don't like the idea of GMs stashing anyone they want in the minors without any reprocussions, so I don't want to turn them off permanently, but I think this might be a good compromise.

Ryan Miller's on his way back to Buffalo, looks like the only harm done was a game or two extra for the Buffalo backup goalie.

Thanks to the Washington GM for now making a big deal out of this.

No. You either did know or ought to have known that such trades would be unacceptable, particularly given the nature of your relationship with the buffalo GM.

The other GM friend of yours in this league is welcome to stay provided he is active and makes legitimate trades but he will be monitored. If he does not wish to stay in the league now that you guys are gone, please ask him to let us know.

Yes you were active and made some even trades, but then you also attempted to make two trades with buffalo to stack your team, after he had waived his star goalie for nothing, and you happen to share an hf boards account with that GM, and you happen to spend much of your time on xbox in a party with that same GM.

I don't see how we could keep you in the league given those circumstances

As I just responded to your private messages, there are many other leagues for you to join and I will not be responding further.

I suppose it would only be fair if we let you keep michael Neuvirth since he was waived presumably because you claimed Miller?

a member of this league (who remained silent here!) but made a suggestion in another league that waivers be turned off just before the sim, then back on after to avoid losing players to the computer's decision.

i'm not sure if that is better or worse than leaving waivers on, or turning them off completely, as it punishes people who make moves themselves rather than wait for the cpu to do it, but perhaps if everybody knows how it works it would be an even playing field.

Turning waivers off completely would possibly let some teams stockpile talent in the minors...

Please share your thoughts and opinions

Also, REMINDER TO ALL TEAMS: If you claim player(s) on waivers, you need to leave open a roster spot on your 23 man roster or else the cpu will send somebody down who may or may not have to clear waivers, and it could be somebody you want to keep. So if you go out and claim 3 of the many players currently on waivers, you could get all 3 and lose 3 of your players for example

Well I traded Miller back to Buffalo. But I lost Neuvirth? I didn't even notice. I will check when I'm on later.

I'm fine with leaving waivers on, I don't know what all the fuss is about. It's a part of the game. Get used to it.

Yeah i lean that way too. Neuverth isnt lost yet but he is on waivers so he might have been claimed.

TEAMS: Please DO NOT CLAIM NEUVERTH.

Otherwise we have to trade him back like miller etc...

hopefully this is the end of it lol

This is my first league but I'm quickly seeing that waivers can be a big problem if you're not careful! I for one would be royally peeved if the cpu put a player on waivers that was pivotal to my team. I'm definitely trying to keep open roster spots so this doesn't happen. Like I said this is my first league but i'm certainly up to try turning off waivers when we sim and turning them back on afterwards, as I think waivers is still important to the gm experience. But if the majority are against that idea I'll just do my best to not allow the cpu to mess up my team.

Okay Tampa Bay has just left the league midway through our game because he hates NHL 13, so they are now open...

If anybody is having trouble with connecting to another player (lost connection etc), make sure your router port forwarding is setup as discussed in this thread
