Oh and for the record, I'll accept Blazing Roy's trade. Just thought I would point that out that Philly will be in contention for 1st overall.

GM connected would be awesome if players could demand a trades.

Would anyone be interested in adding this custom element? Assuming its 100% random. Not sure how it would work but it makes it more real/fun.

Gonna do a re-vote for my AI trade.

Hickey 3.5* 86 ovr
Shipley 3.5* 82 ovr
1st 2021
2nd 2020

For

Pohl 4.5* 82 ovr

Personally I see it as fair still. But I'll add a bit if I have to.

I think you could add more. I think its less than what I gave up for Auld, that first overall pick last year, but not by much, and that Pohl guy is of the same caliber Auld is.

I think I gave up the 3rd overall pick, the 15th overall pick, Jeff Petry (he was 31, and 85 ovr) and Gabriel Borque (26, 82)

Shipley = Borque
Petry = slightly less than Hickey
15th overall = you're first
3rd overall = nowhere close in value to a late 2nd.

Meh, kind of hard to arrange. The best we could do is teams that want to participate in this element choose a player on their roster at random to offer up, and they must take the best offer.

Cousins - C / 25 years old / 81 ovr / 3.5 stars gold
Blain - D / 27 years old / 79 ovr / 3.5 stars white
1st in 2020'

for

Bernier - G / 30 years old / 86 ovr / 4 stars white
Huet - D / 20 years old / 70 ovr / 4 star gold

Why? San Jose finished 4th in the league last year, so they are trying to contend.

I filled all their roster holes with a goalie that is a downgrade, but they had 2 starting goalies and 15 million committed between them. Bachman can back up their starter, makes less money so I could trade them other pieces, and I added a first to make up the difference between them.

They had absolutely nobody at 3C, so I gave them Cousins, who is a quality player, but also young at 25 with room to grow. They also only had grinders on the LW, so Howden could slot into the top 6. He scored 20+ goals mostly on my third line last year as well. Blain fills a hole in their bottom pairing.

I asked for Huet back, because he isn't NHL ready, and I thought they would rather have those three aforementioned holes filled at the expense of one of their prospects.

Opinions?
I got two, could I get one more anybody? I have another trade this sim that relies on this being completed due to cap reasons.

Damn, you do only get one sim to match an offer sheet. Aw frig. Learned my lesson.

It's the good advice that you just didn't take. Who would've thought... it figures.

Meh, now that I see your lineup... I think I'll be happy with my lottery pick.

I might have more interest once the season gets going and I see how my team fares.

Oh, I got it alright. Just like I got that chicken bone.

I'm done with my roster only because I don't have the cap space or assets to improve, not because it's a team worthy of the fine folks in Big D.

Wing night must be a nightmare.

I'm on a huge mid-nineties kick right now. Don't mind me. Lower-mid life crisis time!

I'm ready for the season to start.

My original trade with San Jose is basically impossible to make work even with tons of variations due to the cap. I'm over by like 2 million.

Due to this, I had to go to another team with more cap space. New Jersey has like 50 million so I'm dumping salary on them.

I already sent the trade off since I'm sure nobody will be opposed since its almost a complete cap dump, and NJ accepted. I still need approval I know... so here it is.

To NJ:
Blain (79 overall, 27 years old, 3 star white)
Howden (82 overall, 27 years old, 4 star white)
Bachman (83 overall, 31 years old, 3.5 star white)
Counsins (82 overall, 25 years old, 3.5 star gold)
Holtan (60 something overall, 18 years old, 3.5 star gold, unsigned)

for

Kennedy (73 overall, 22 years old, 4 star gold)
Postma (77 overall, 30 years old, 3 star white)
I think I threw in a 3rd round pick as well
