Franchise NHL / NHL Cancels Rest of Regular Season
« on: May 26, 2020, 08:10:27 PM »

* The 2019-20 regular season is declared concluded through games of March 11. The 189 games originally scheduled from March 12 - April 4 will not be played.

Franchise NHL / 2020 NHL Draft: Going to happen?
« on: April 22, 2020, 06:19:03 PM »
There's talk of the NHL watching the NFL remote draft closely and considering options to hold the draft in June before the season has been completed and the Cup awarded. Crazy?!?!?!??!!!!!!!!!

I think the NFL is a no brainer in their offseason. But the NHL has an incomplete regular season with playoffs yet to be played so I don't see how they can hold a draft! Too much left to be determined by reg season and playoff results to nail down draft positions. What about trades? That would impact playoff bound teams!? WTF!

Impossible IMO.

Franchise NHL / 2020-21 NHL Season: PREDICTIONS?

Let's hear your predictions on the 2020-21 NHL season. How's it all going to play out next NHL season and why?

Franchise NHL / OPTION 1: FNHL PLAYOFFS PARALLEL LEAGUE 2020-21 (4wks)
« on: March 21, 2020, 04:14:10 PM »
There's chatter that the NHL could let all teams end the "regular season" with 71 games played and start the Playoffs immediately.

If that scenario plays out, our FNHL playoffs would not work.

Perhaps a suggestion would be to repurpose the remainder of the 2019-20 FNHL playoffs and plug it into the start of the 2020-21 NHL season's schedule. Just a suggestion.

This idea has LEGS baby!

I like that idea to play out the remainder of the 2019-20 playoffs.

Running with that idea to building on that thought, we could create a parallel league with the 8 remaining playoff teams at the start of 2020-21 and play out
* Round 2 Thurs-Sun -- 4 days
* Conference Finals -- 1 week
* FNHL FINALS -- 2 weeks

We would have to ensure:
* the remaining 8 teams have a say and
* 8 teams would need to agree to any setup that is not the expected regular course of the FNHL playoffs we normally undertake
* 8 teams would need to agree unanimously that the prize pool is in-play or agree the remainder of FNHL playoffs are for fun only with no official result recorded.

Parallel league to play out the remainder of the playoffs would be free to setup on Fantrax because it's less than 12 or 16 teams -- but to be double checked by myself & PR.

I believe commissioner controls would allow me and PR to set matchups for each remaining Playoff Round.

Franchise NHL / FNHL Season & Playoffs PAUSED - MARCH 12, 2020
« on: March 12, 2020, 02:44:18 PM »
https://www.espn.com/nhl/story/_/id/28891430/sources-nhl-suspending-play-immediately-due-virus

It's official, the NHL has hit the PAUSE BUTTON on the 2019-20 season meaning our FNHL Playoffs are also PAUSED in the middle of Round 2.

PR & I will post a discussion thread for all FNHL owners to have a say with some recommendations in case of scenario X, Y or Z.

Stay Tuned!

Franchise NHL / HURRICANES INTRODUCE NEW OWNER 99WILDTHING
« on: February 24, 2020, 09:38:44 PM »
As we prepare for the end of the regular season and the start of the 2020 PLAYOFFS here in Franchise NHL, I'm happy to announce FNHL Carolina Hurricanes have been purchased by a bigtime hockey enthusiast, 99WildThing. He's has been asking to buy into Franchise NHL for the last 3 weeks since he discovered it. He wants the challenge of a cap league, and FNHL is the best d@mn hockey $$:money: cap league on the planet! :winner: There just happened to be an opportunity when the previous owner wanted to focus on life and asked to put the for sale sign on his franchise. 99WildThing wasted little time, that's for sure!


:CAR-NHL: Hurricanes have solid goaltending with Bob and star power with the likes of Aho, Stone, Wilson, Silfverberg, Nurse and Hamilton but the MiLR is somewhat bare for a contending team.


FYI, 99WildThing can rename their minor league team if the decide to do so. Ideally you choose a nickname with an associated logo that we can find on this site.

As we like to say in FNHL, Have fun & try to win our money! :win::money::win:
