Franchise NHL / Re: RULE INTRODUCED: Cannot BO & Draft a Drafted Player
« on: January 17, 2021, 12:50:28 PM »
This new rule is to prevent circumventing the cap hit attributed to a top prospect.
In the past 2 seasons, we have seen teams dropping or Buying out a top prospect with a pricy ELC only to draft them in the Supplemental or Special Round 5 portion of the Entry Draft.

Rule Introduced January 5, 2021: Teams prohibited from Releasing or Buying out a MiLR player, player on ELC only to draft them in the Supplemental, Entry or Special Round 5 portion of the Entry Draft.

Example: Jack Hughes selected #1 overall should earn a $3.0M ELC but was bought out and drafted during the 2020 FNHL Supplemental Draft and will be signed to a league minimum of $0.7M - as of today, this practice will not be allowed as Hughes deserves his $3M ELC contract and this circumvents a sizeable cap hit the drafting team should accept.

Moving forward as of today January 5, 2021, this practice will not be allowed. :judge:

Good Rule change

The Rd 5 pick for Seattle :SEA-NHL: - is that treated like an entry draft pick or like a supplemental pick as with the Division winners? I want to make sure I've got the right prospects lined up. LMK Thanks.

Seems the talks between NHL and NHLPA have been holding things up for the hockey world.
I'm guessing the PA wants to get the NHL to give players an opt out of play while the NHL probably doesn't want to allow it.

The NBA has an interesting setup but they only have 1 Canadian team to contend with. The NHL will have a tough time getting things started in January if they don't come to an agreement with the PA by mid-December.

Agreed; letís hope they reach agreement quickly for the fans.

I say they drop the puck to start the regular season on January 18, 2021.
It should be January 11th but there will be positive COVID tests early on during training camp leading to slowdown/shutdowns for several days/wks in December.

That's my guess.

I follow that logic; good as guess as I would have.

I am noticing this looks like an A B conversation so Iím going to C my way out. So sorry to interrupt

My story isn't directly about FNHL but about my BY experience. Still involves FNHL indirectly.

I think I was in BY for all of a week or 2 when I first joined Profsl. I didn't reply to a PM for 5-7 days and got kicked out by Drew for not being active enough for his precious BY. You could tell the guy had too much time and no family, definitely no kids or a house. All I could do was laugh. My guess is the guy actually created spawn now and understand he was premature with his decision. From what I hear he disappears for stretches now. Karma. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

How does this indirectly involve FNHL?

Well, all I can say is after that regrettable encounter with Drew, I appreciate how professional and mature PR & PPG are in this league. People seem to get it here. Play hard but relax and don't let stuff wind you up.

Then seeing how Drew used commish privileges to retroactively adjust his lineup numerous times to win matchups just made a lot of us question those FNHL champions. It did for me. Maybe that huge Anton Forsberg BO cap hit is bad karma slapping the face of that Minnesota Wild franchise.

Thatís some laundry

You know I'm just adding my version of Antman to this thread right. But I have to say Indians ripped my heart out when he traded away Sebastian Aho, Nikita Gusev AND Johnny Gaudreau from my heavily scouted former San Jose Sharks franchise. At least Rock On has worked on rebuilding the minors over there. :thumbsup:

Feels like a separate unique perspective entirely. Iíd just call it a Burkeeee

I think we both value prospects so I could see how that might be viewed as wreckless management.

AntMan's bullying me again MOM! :rofl::rofl: We are all watching you continually assembling the best young roster. :thumbsup: So we don't feel bad for your Colorado Avalanche. Not one bit. But I have to say it'll be tougher without the assistance of Indians. :rofl: Some of us still talk about how the Avs were gifted Cayden Primeau.  :puke::puke::thumbsup:

Iím happy to discuss this because I think there is a cluster of teams stuck on this one transaction and holding up trade conversations creating a Venn diagram or silo trade circles where we should be wide open but very few are in the overlap.

Letís remember Cayden was the 29th best goalie spec at the time and hadnít be regraded as some Price equivalent. Boston trades a Late supplemental to Indians for a first. Colorado then offered up a supplemental on the trade block having two left and we struck a deal with indians agreeing on two supplementals for Primeau. IMO at that time the first was worth the same or slightly more than Primeau so I had the lesser of the deals. There was a trade committee and Iíd say they (yourself included) agreed at that moment demand and value was high on those supplemental picks. You just have to vote and move on and you must have agreed then.

Certainly no more of a gift than Binnington whoís actually producing in FNHL.  :puke:

Letís also remember some trades go bad for Colorado and others also. Who deals for Beartschi giving up McAvoy.

Pick your poison in a league of sharks. Thatís why we need parity rules so the big sharks get challenged. Youíre the biggest shark right now BB. Theyíre going to come for you...

Com'on Ant! Don't give my Habs a hard time. We haven't played one another enough times to even develop a rivalry.

Youíll be ok w/o goalie compensation, you have a top team.

P.S. I love AntManís candor while antagonizing his division rival.

Thatís our rival DD and thatís a dynamic team in music city.

I was expecting the same rules from Vegas draft.

Apropos candor Iíd like goalie compensation removed. Itís not the same for everyone like the other rules and wasnít necessary last go.

  • Daddy: Former MLB exec says Albert Pujols has been lying about his age
    March 04, 2021, 03:41:19 PM
  • Daddy: Pujols is still set to make $30 million this season — which many believe will be his last, though he says he hasn't decided.
    March 04, 2021, 03:42:09 PM
  • Daddy: While recalling that contract, and offers the Marlins sent Pujols, Samson let it slip that the baseball player isn't the age he claims to be.  "We knew when we did the calculations for that deal that we didn’t care about 2019, '20 or '21. It was so far in the future that it didn’t matter,” Samson said. "We knew he’d be unproductive, we knew that he was not the age that he said he was. We had all the information."
    March 04, 2021, 03:43:17 PM
  • Daddy: Samson said, "There is not one person in baseball, not one executive, who believes Albert Pujols is the age that he says he is. The amount of fraud that was going on in the Dominican back in the day, the changing of names, the changing of birthdays, it would blow your mind."
    March 04, 2021, 03:44:25 PM
  • Daddy: Pujols would be three years older than the 41 years old he's listed at currently (considering his birth date of Jan. 16 is accurate), which would theoretically make him 44.
