Hey guys,

 

Can I propose another rule?

 

Since there's still an ELC bug and we're entering day 77... I think it would be really nice if we all could agree to delay extending offers to players who were formally on an ELC and belonged to another team. I would like to see everyone able to attempt to re-sign their own prospects.

 

So if you see a 21-year-old, for example, who last played for (X) team and was 'released after not signing contract' on Day 77... could we all agree to wait to attempt to sign him?

 

My prospects developed into the core of my team and, like others, I'm facing losing them. As a BHL team, this is going to hit pretty hard (especially when it comes to goalies).

 

I don't know another way around this. If a player has an offer extended to him by a team that they formerly belonged to... it would be nice to pass on offering him a contract for a bit.

 

I know NPC teams will make offers so I'm at a loss here... I don't know what else to do if we don't get the day frozen :(

Ok, but I'm asking to be exempted concerning S.Young (82 overall) that I traded in the last day when I saw that the bug wouldn't be fixed in time. He is playing for York GHL.

So you would like him to be able to be signed by another team, or 'off limits'?

 

 

My 'reserved' list is: Jean Felix-Brayford, Donnie Maeda, Eliah Lantz, and Jean-Daniel Molson, if anyone reads this and has considered signing them... I'd love first shot getting my boys back.

Off limits. Has been traded at low price to get anything (better than nothing).

I am definitely on board with agreeing not to poach other team's players who couldn't be signed to extensions after the expiration of their ELCs.

So it looks like the season rolled over, but player contracts on a whole did not change, nor did players age.

I'm hopeful this is a fix for now and we're safe. Fingers crossed!

I could live with this temporary solution. Actually, I wish we could stop the aging process like this in real life.

Unless I was due for a gigantic pay raise... ;)

 

Also, if a prospect of yours somehow does have their rights expire and they're signed to another team... I'd say we should agree to allow a trade to get that player back to their rightful team, if that makes sense.

 

If a Computer team loses rights to a prospect though... I suppose free for all?

Something is not right.

 

Yes, the season rolled over and players' age and contracts have not changed, but there is more to it.

 

I can't sign any of the draftees from the most recent (Season 15) draft, it doesn't even give me the option to offer a contract on their player page, just "Add to Shortlist."

I'm having this same issue--I *assume* it's due to aging being frozen, which means our draftees are still 17 and ineligible to be signed.

 

 

I guess this is the downside to the benefit of stalling due to the bug.
