Reason: added Selanne as last keeper
Not meaning to overstep my bounds, like some policeman or something, but...
I see that Dave said yes, and I question this. The only way that I would see this being applicable would be if you drafted Hudler as a prospect, which I didn't find. Why would any one of us have carry-over rights on a player that we didn't draft as a prospect?
Looking back at last year, it was brought up for discussion as a new rule, but nothing ever came of it. I'll defer to you guys again on this one as I have no real opinion either way on the matter. Personally my thoughts are that with the money these guys are getting to be stars in Russia they'll never be back in the NHL anyhow (see Morozov) so it really doesn't hurt or help a team too much.
yeah i didnt agree with radulov either. its their own choice to be playing there and theyve left the league, i think if you want to protect them you have to use a spot. just my two cents, i wouldnt be pissed either way and would be fine with what everyone agrees with. what do we mean by "non-drafted player? as in he was a waiver pickup? or that he was picked up in the regular draft? either way id hold my opinion.
I thought some more about this, and maybe I get it now. If I had Ovechkin, and he bolted for Russia for only one year, I would think it unfair to have to protect a guy that definitely wouldn't play. I think we can do this, with some rules surrounding it.
The rule that comes to mind is that before the player can be picked up, the GM has to include the player as one of the protected 11. If this is preseason, this is as simple as including the player in the list of 11. However, if it occurs mid-season, and the GM wants him, he must drop one of the players that was in the original protected list of 11. Then the dropped protected player becomes a free agent, subject to the waiver draft and free agency pickup rules.
Yeah, I wanted to do it on the 1st but most of the games start that night. What time would you get home from practice? And would anyone have a problem with pushing the start back to 9:30 since it's only 15 rounds of actual drafting?
edit: oh just a reminder to those that haven't sent in lists yet. If I don't get a list that means you're not protecting anyone. Would suck to lose a Parise/Richards/Getzlaf type player to the draft, yet alone a Malkin or Ovechkin type player.
I can make it home by 9:30, sweaty dirty and smelly, but I'll just have to make due. I can give Dave my top 20 for my first round pick and hope that I'm ready to go for my second pick. 9:30 would definitely be preferable for me, though I know it's not great for bedtimes.
Prospects team has been added. I'm sure there's going to be a lot of turnover on there though, such as Vagrant adding Frolik, myself adding Oshie, etc at times in the season. I'll see if I can add 3 more or so during the season to accommodate all the prospects in the league.
