Okay, we have advanced. Once you guys get your series done, we'll move to the draft.

The leafs remain champions after a game 7 OT battle. Very good series could have gone either way he is a great player... We're all ready for the sim

Advancing us now. Will stop us the day before the draft, so everyone can set their draft priorities and whatnot, then will advance us through the draft and to re-signing tomorrow.

*Edit* Oilers stole the awards this year, taking home the President's trophy, Taylor Hall taking home the Masterson, Art Ross, Maurice Richard, and the Hart Memorial, and Theo Peckham taking home the Norris.

After an hour of waiting for the sim to update (ugh) we have passed the draft and moved on to re-signing. Go re-sign those players.

We'll advance each night for the next few nights of re-signing. I believe we have 4 days of re-signing available, and then the last two days are one sim period.

Not that it matters now, but is there ever anything too worthwhile in the draft at the end of the first round? I've admittedly never bothered with scouting in this league and never bothered with setting priorities/rankings for the draft. Am I really missing too much here?

i haven't bothered scouting either. if it's anything like gm mode though, everything outside of the top 10 is garbage and takes 6 years of development to get to your nhl team.

Gotcha. So essentially there's zero purpose for me. If you're active in this league you're not ending up in the top 10, and if there's no impact from a guy within the first 2-3 years, there's little point here anyway. I don't sign many of these draft picks, even when they get to the point that they're UFA. The ones I have that are UFA now are around 60ish overall and 3 star potential... i assume that's roughly the going rate for late 1st round picks/2nd round picks. Or whatever random round these guys were drafted in.

If they aren't in the top 5, the likelihood of them developing into anything in the first 4 years is nil.

I know this year I traded someone to Anaheim...can't even remember who it was now, to free up some cap space, and got their first round pick for this year's draft, which I think turned into #2. Though I haven't looked to see who was drafted, or his stats.

These games will never get prospects right. This year instead of making them all good this year, they made them all awful

Day 2 of re-signing has begun. Will advance us to day 3 tomorrow.

Edmonton may have a couple of defensemen in the lower 80's on the block at some point soon.

Day 3 of re-signing is here. I'm pretty sure there's still one day of re-signing left, but I don't remember. Best to get as much done before tomorrow night as possible.

And yes, Edmonton will have some defense on the block. I've got 8 defensemen in the 80's, and a couple rookies in the high 70's who need to start getting some NHL experience.

Hmm... so now I can't make offers that suck to my guys since I have one more shot at it (after this next sim I assume). Oh well.

Last day of re-signing has started. Tomorrow Free Agency begins.

The sim to the second period of free agency will be delayed a few hours on Sunday night, and possibly not done until Monday morning as I'll be traveling into NYC for the evening.

Free Agency started last night. Just a reminder that there will be no sim this evening as I'm out of the house. If I can remember when I get home (probably close to 1am if I'm lucky) I'll do it, if not, then tomorrow.
