Anyway both offers are insane.

I actually think 6,5 is a very reasonable contract for a player of that caliber (10M is pushing it of course). For what it's worth, I think all top players should make 6+ million as a rule of thumb. Of course we're very far from that atm.

Let's get this thread going.

 

For starters, I edited a brief video about one particular FA signing.

Guess there are other factors than just money...




#35002 Player salaries & cap (bug?)

Posted by Erzac on May 28, 2018 - 08:08 AM

Playoffs are here and contract extensions are happening again, so I'll keep at this.

 

Today in Biscuit GHL 9 players signed an extension - 7 of them took a pay cut.

A highlight from that bunch: 22yo, 96ovr d-man, on an already cheap contract, is fine with an extension that lowers his salary by ~16%. Why would a young superstar coming off a good season ever agree to something like that?

Depending on some game results tonight, the last playoff spot(s) may be decided by the last game of the season between Cats and Grizzlies, with the possibility of a spot being on the line for both teams.

 

Another magic number: Of all the current GHL teams (that have been in playoffs in the past), Stray Cats hold the enviable record of the longest playoff drought, with the latest (and only) appearance in S7.

Think I finally found a picture of the assistant at work.

Vegas have so many players playing their career-best season right now. Would be very surprising to see the same sort of performance from all of those players next season.

 

But right now it's an amazing story to follow.

A regulation win in the catfight tonight would be big for either team.

 

I still have the upcoming 4 game streak of Marauders(5th), Rebels(4th), Vandals(2nd) and Protons(1st). Can't really expect to gain too many points there.




#34593 What to do when you get promoted

Use that increased cap space and go wild in free agency. Also, if you want to push it, you can try to acquire some established players with draft picks.

The revitalized Stray Kittens are looking to extend the point streak to 10 games tonight. The top line with Chovanec and Ryzhanov has been on fire, and they show no signs of slowing down.

"After careful analysis, I came to the conclusion that EVERYONE underestimated EVERYONE and it's AMAZING and HORRIBLE."

 

From one game.

 

We need one that says "It was obvious that the assistant underestimated your perceptiveness"

We need a separate assistant therapy thread.

Another annoying result from the bloated overalls is that players are an indistinguishable mass.

 

As 99 marks the best of the best, currently in Biscuit GHL there are:

 

24 world fastest skaters,

11 world best passers,

14 world best shooters etc.

 

And if you'd think ~95 is "elite" in a category, then basically any player on any given team is "elite" in something. Which shouldn't be the case obviously.

And there are lots of "Yu" types out there that aren't going away anytime soon.  At least this year's (and last's) draft looks more human. 

Here are the notable 25yo or younger GHL goalies I could find with a quick glance.

 

Vojsovic, 20 - 89

Malette, 21 - 95

Cook, 22 - 90

Fricker, 22 - 94

Koivula, 23 - 95

Senko, 24 - 96

Strass, 24 - 95

Yu, 24 - 96

Keehan, 25 - 90

Ormsby, 25 - 94

 

These guys will be in the game for at least 10+ seasons. And they'll get even better still. Also, there seemed to be no immensely talented 18-19 year old goalies around.

I truly don't understand how the team manages to perform so poorly. The only trick I haven't tried is sacrificing the assistant to the hockey gods, but sadly that option isn't in the game yet.

A good start to a season remains unchecked on the bucket list. After winning the first three games, the team is now 5-1-0-10. The first line that was doing solid work last season has managed to gather a minus-12 rating in 16 games.
