While the team put together might very well be good the AI has a habit of continuously and completely botching it up. I've seen the AI have one of the best teams in the SHL and still finish dead last.

 

Edit: As for newer managers taking them over when I have seen new managers take over such teams they typically struggle and botch it up themselves. That said there is a simple solution. Raising the game limits for switching to a GHL or SHL team.


In Topic: Affiliate hoarding.

First a waiver system is coming to allow lower league managers to claim players. How exactly it will work I don't know. That said I did call at the outset that overly greedy managers would abuse the affiliate system.

 

Second there is a right way to find and go after players for an affiliate system. Its simple. Wait until the end of FA and then go after any FA not being offered a contract by lower league teams that you have interest in. It allows other teams (most importantly lower league teams) to go after FAs that they may actually need.


In Topic: S13 Trade Block

3 forwards are on the block for me.

 

Chattillon, Eger and Grieveau-Brisjoly.

 

Looking for picks, prospects or 3rd/4th line forwards in return.

In the affiliate they train as hard as you set them to. The problem is that injuries stagnates training while the player is hurt. Combine that with players on affiliate teams regularly getting fatigued due to the combination of hard training and a lack of managing minutes and I don't doubt that fatigue injuries happen a bit more often than we would like in the affiliates. Hence me mentioning those pros and cons.

A few quick pros and cons.

 

Pros: Player gets to play in a controlled environment rather than random one in minor system. Potential for fatigue injuries reduced (especially for goalies.)

 

Cons: Would have to be limited to players able to be sent down. Lower league teams could forgo signing players and building a team and just go to loan players (could be a loan limit of say 5 players per team.)
