I'd like to see a free agency system that holds both equal risk and reward.

For example:

-Offering a player a 50% raise should mean you automatically sign said player. There are few examples in the UFA market of players who wouldn't sign that raise:

Kovalchuk: $6.3M, after $9.45M
Gonchar: $5M, $7.5M after
Volchenkov: $3.2M, after $4.8M

Zbynek Michalek and Tomas Plekanec are two players who likely get more than 50% ($1.875M and $4.125M, respectively) but there's no perfect solution.

-If you offer a contract that is less than a 50% raise, that player might still 'accept', but if five other teams offer to sign him for more than the offered amount within 24 hours that player remains a pending UFA. Teams that offer a higher contract during this period must be able to actually fit said cap hit, but the player won't actually end up on their roster even if they out-bid that player's rightsholder.

-If we so decide, following the Draft, there can be an actual auction-style free agency period.

RFA status is a bit easier. None of them can be signed prior to the end of the Draft, but then it's a minimum 10% raise with the potential for offer sheets.

Are you saying Gonchar WOULDN'T sign for a 50% raise?

I'm just trying to wrap my head around what you are talking about. I understand that Kovalchuck might not accept those dollars, Volchenkov as well, but Gonchar?

Perhaps the top UFA's can have a predetermined "fair value" by the posters who have team in the game.

Last year we just said "**** it" and signed them at the same dollar figure for one year and you had to trade for other teams unwanted FA signings.

It's not ideal, but uncomplicating things as best as possible is the only way this thing is going to go smoothly.

Whatever is least complicating is probably best.

Unless we can get someone to strictly act as a player agent, this may be the way to go. Although Im not gonna lie, I'd love a crack at some UFAs.

Anyways, perhaps a mandatory raise for RFAs?

Sorry, what I meant is that they would sign that. We know Kovy wants league max, but the Devils are contenders every year and might sign for a little less to stay there.

In terms of contracts, I'd be willing to be the 'player agent' and juggle signings/offers.

Perhaps we could just use some honesty and common sense when it comes to UFA's and RFA's and give them what you think is fair?

This. Keeps the game a lot less congested.

Technically this is a "draft game" and UFA's shouldn't be the concern.

That'd be the best for UFA signings I believe. For RFA's, maybe the minimum 15% raise? Again not ideal, but I'm not sure we have people wanting to be player agents.


Also, can we please make sure we have majority of the GMs being active. While no offense to newer users, its just, in the past we've had too many guys who'd make picks in rounds 1 and 2, and then disappear for the rest. While one or two isn't a huge worry, when the number gets to 5-8, it gets annoying.

Pronger-Carle
Timonen-_____

_____
Boucher

Cap Hit-47.459M

Untouchable-Richards, Pronger, Timonen, CARBOMB

Will only go for a #1 goalie-Carter, Giroux, JVR, Gagne, Leino

Readily Available-Hartnell, Coburn, Parent, Bartulis, Briere

2010 Picks-3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th

First and foremost we're looking to add a legit #1 goalie. The other thing we are looking for is pure offensive talent.

Are we respecting NTC/NMCs? And what is the 2010-2011 cap?

Not sure about the NTC/NMC. That would throw a wrench in my Horcoff plans.
