Franchise NHL / Re: FNHL COVID-19 Discussion
« on: March 26, 2020, 04:16:30 PM »
I'm starting to see people getting a little selfish and nasty.
People need to treat this situation like a marathon not a sprint.
Acts of kindness or general kindness toward your brothers and sisters. That's all it takes.

My next post will be a little more political.

THE OPEN / Re: NHL March 25 Simulation Event
« on: March 24, 2020, 06:35:16 PM »

I'm not opposed to it, so I won't block it.

Just that everyone needs to consider that it's a different season, so it will change the dynamics. Players who are UFA's will be unsigned ... which will be even more likely if the NHL has a much shorter offseason. Some will retire. Some will move on to the KHL. Some goalies will lose their starting jobs. Some skaters will get demoted to the AHL.

These are all things that we adjust to over the course of an offseason ... and even over the course of the regular season. But there will be no course for adjustment in a 3-4 week playoff. No trades. No FA signings. Just luck of the draw.

Just something to think about.

I respect all those points, Crow. :iatp:
All valid. We will have to see how different and impacted team rosters are in a few months if we consider moving fwd with this option. At this time, we looking over things and giving it a good sniff test, and I agree, some of those potential issues smell bad and could hurt the integrity of of the 2019-20 playoff results.

For now, let's keep poking this option and seeing what issues we need to drill down on if we move ahead.

In order to do this properly our rosters would have to be what they are now just for the parallel playoffs. 2020-21 rosters will be different do to contracts, trades, and the drafts. If thatís the case i like it.

The way I see it, the continuation of the playoffs would be set up on a parallel league site. Put another way, we wouldn't just create additional matchups in the 2020-21 league site, we would make a different site for only the 8 remaining playoff teams to play it out.

Do we have to wait until a month in to have the supplemental and Entry draft? Those are based on results of playoffs.
Yes, we will need to move those dates out.

Also, you would have to change the scoring because fights are an advanced stat and would need a premium fee to use.
Good point. Haven't had to hand pick that stat because we carry over league rules & rosters annually when we setup a new season. That sucks. Consider that stat a RED FLAG. As a preliminary solution, maybe we sacrifice 80$ from the prize pool with the agreement of the remaining teams with a stake in the prize to pay for a Custom Fantrax league.

TBD. But good point to flag about the Flighting Stat being a premium Fantrax feature.

PR should jump on and comment.

This idea has my supoort to vet and flesh out with the remaining 8 FNHL playoff teams:
:PHO: Blkhwkfn
:CLG: DToxFan
:MON-NHL: Mordecai
:NAS: Burkes Boys
:NYI: Johnnyweissflog

Let's hear from these gents! What say you to this idea? Also, if we do this, do you all agree to play using this format and play for :money: prize pool payout?

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.

I've opened a discussion thread to park this good idea.

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 / Re: PLAYOFFS ROUND 2: 2019-20
« on: March 19, 2020, 04:49:16 PM »
At the "PAUSE"
:DAL-NHL: 36.0 @ 58.85 :NAS:
:BOS-NHL: (ATL 2) 50.1 @ 54.15 :MON-NHL: (Div Winner 1)
:NYI: (wildcard 1) 27.45 @ :PIT-NHL: (MET 2nd) 33.45
:CLG: (wildcard 2) 27.85 @ :PHO: (PAC 2nd) 34.7

That's after 3 days of round 2, anything's possible. The suspense is driving me nuts. Really can't wait for more hockey. I might even be willing to settle for simmed FNHL games on someone's video game console.

A few owners PM'ed about whether the non-playoff teams could be allowing to trade and make transactions.

The short answer is NO - the restrictions apply across the board until we know what's going to happen to the NHL which directly impacts our FNHL playoffs.

Also, extensions are allowed right now but with Buyouts prohibited and all teams having fixed cap space since the transaction freeze went into effect, allowing some teams to clear cap would be unfair to the playoff teams -so we will maintain the current transaction freeze for all FNHL teams.

  • Vik: Also, I know it doesnt really make sense but I am considering extending BOD and you simply play with the guys you have left as it's a lost season for Fantasy regardless. Will also send PM with a potential plan shortly
    July 06, 2020, 12:50:03 PM
  • Vik: On second though almost no point for BOD unless it's just top 4 teams or something as of the freeze but probably best we just enjoy ball/hockey in real life assuming they finish it off
