Their two way extension will not kick in until the start of a new season.

So they will kick in?  As in, I should expect them to stay without having to offer them a new contract as FAs?

I haven't ever seen someone get into that situation before. I'd assume the contract just cancels or else counts as a buyout. Why don't you want to just keep the players that you resigned?

I assume there's no way it would count as a buyout unless I actually buy out their contracts.

 

If this is a unique situation, I guess I'm the guinea pig.

 

I'm unclear as to what you mean by your question.  I do want to keep them, hence why I resigned them, the question I'm asking is whether their extensions are cancelled by my team being demoted due to their existing contract's one-way clauses.  I simply don't want to be surprised at the end of the season if they become free agents and get signed by someone else before I have a chance to throw them another offer.

Ok, I understand what you mean. I understood that you were gonna temporarily release them even though you already resigned them but were not changing leagues.

 

What should end up happening is that sometime on the last day of the season, before any teams are promoted or demoted, next year's contracts kick in. That means that since you've signed your guys to two-way deals, once your team is demoted, the guys will remain on your team without hitting free agency.

Gotcha.

 

So the end-of-year process basically goes:

 

Contracts expire

Contract extensions kick in

Promotion/demotion & one-way/promotion clauses kick in

So with the upcoming upheaval in the game, long-term signings are moot?  Like trying to get  4-year college degree when you know the world will end in 1 year?  In Clapper LIHL, I have a player with shaky traits but good ratings performing wonderfully well; have brought him back from unhappy to frustrated, would like to sign him and further improve his attitude, but feel his salary demands are excessive and I'm afraid to get locked in for 2 years at that.  But-if things are all going away soon, is there any reason why I would not want to just sign him to get his best effort this season, with no future consequences?

I would say to sign them and get their best efforts this season.  If for some reason the reset is delayed and we get 1 more season in the current worlds, you can finagle a trade or use waivers.  I will be in the same boat.
