ABSOLUTELY NO POSTING IN THIS THREAD, IT IS MINE TO POST IN!
During Free Agency periods each off-season i'll make a Free Agency thread, during that time you will post signings and negotiate with the agent's I hire. During the year if you want to sign a player that was undrafted you'll negotiate with me, when you offer me a contract i'll post it in the Main Thread to see if someone outbids you. Please include all details in the contract or i'll just assume something else.
If you want to re-sign/extend a players contract on your team you can do so by negotiating with:
(To be determined)
Once you have agreed to a deal with them, go ahead and post it in the Main Thread, i'll update everything into this one.
You are allowed to waive players but you cannot buyout contracts, they are just too confusing for me to deal with. If you sign a player and than want to waive him, you cannot do it until he is in his second season of the contract you gave him. When you waive a player and that player does not get picked up, you can either re-entry waive him or send him to the minors after the first waive. If the player clears from re-entry waivers, you only pay half the salary against your cap until the contract expires. Keep in mind, if you do end up sending the player you waived to the minors, you can only have 2 players that are waived and sent down to the minors. Players that do not have 2-way contracts CANNOT be sent to the minors, if you want to send a player down to your AHL affiliate the player will have to pass through waivers... your risk.
You will only be allowed to sign players to ELC's if their contract is expiring and the real NHL team that has that player does not sign him, meaning he'd go back into the draft. Otherwise, there will be no signing ELC contracts on players because we will be using the real ELC contracts instead. So for example, last year the Edmonton Oilers could not come to an agreement on signing Riley Nash, he would have gone back into the 2011 draft if Edmonton didn't trade him before that. In this Fantasy League, if you had Riley Nash you'd be able to sign him yourself.
