  1. Anders very graciously got back to me, adjusted the player, and promised the next update would address the glitch that caused this
  2. His current contract ends in a few days. I realized a great deal of the reason I was misled was that the trade calculator factored in the upcoming contract for next season. I have figured out a work-around to keep him, but realize I shouldn't have to work-around anything. I e-mailed support right away, but have not heard back yet, and time is winding down. Much as I have enjoyed this game, if this situation is not righted, if contracts are not contracts, there's no reason to continue.
  3. How were we we supposed to know this? I'm on the hook now for a player with an expiring contract, that had an extension. I was very careful to make sure the new contract fit under my salary cap, and made the trade. Now the extension has evaporated, and I can't afford the player's new demands...NOT happy
  4. LOL just checked my most recent results in GHL. Tie game, opponent commits a 5-minute major at 17:30; we score winning goal on the resulting power play at 19:30; player who took the penalty is voted 2nd Star of the Game! On further review-he took another major earlier in the game-we scored on that one, too!
  5. One of my teams has been relegated. I understand that I will lose 1-way contracted players. BUT-until that happens, in trying to plan for the future, are 1-way, multi-year contracts for players I will lose included in the "next year's salary cap" computation? if they are, are they included at full value? or with "lower level reduction percentage"?
  6. add me to the list-Buzzer team has 2. Both players that I had shortlisted, then removed...notified the authorities when they happened

    Trade

    Appears the Saints have clinched moving up to Bronze...fire sale on many of the players that made that happen, but likely won't be competitive in Bronze...ALL the Copper teams have human owners; if the players you have aren't getting it done, here's an opportunity to get some who have gotten it done! Looking for prospects and draft choices...My leading scorer is available-69 OVR, age 31. My best scoring and +/- defenseman OVR 68, age 25. Some 70-71 forwards. A goalie 66 OVR, age 22. A quiet, reliable defenseman 68 OVR, age 27. 4 defensemen OVR 63-65, ages 21-25. Goalie 61 OVR, age 22, awesome affiliate performance!-hello IHL, while you still can!

    Trade

    Simmesport Saints, Attack Copper. Have lots of players available that got me from Iron to Copper. My affiliate team is 80-0, so it's well-stocked with good players...looking for prospects and draft picks...4 centers, 58 to 65; 3+ forwards, 63-66, 4 defensemen, 58-65, and 3 young goalies, 60-62
  9. LOL FWIW, I checked out how my minor league affiliate was doing. So far, so good- 78 wins, 0 losses. Leading scorer has 161 points and is +127. 4 goalie rotation have produced 31 shutouts....
  10. I have 2 major pieces for my Buzzer Bronze team waiting for next season, but since it looks like i am no threat for promotion, their anticipated arrival should become a fine head-start on next season. My Attack Iron team has a lone forward prospect "waiting in the wings", lol.
  11. I'm trying a checking line for the first time-didn't look at their ratings so much as their profiles-3 natural grinders, and they're doing ok....
  12. New version: 500 Internal Server Error when I tried to access Asst Report for Day 6 pre-season game Buccaneers-Outlaws Buzzer Bronze. Thought at first it might be too soon after game, but it's been an hour now with no difference
  13. Yes, tried to waive a player (Buzzer Bronze Metairie Bucs-Romain Mckinney D) and got 500 Internal Server Error
  14. What is considered "fast", "normal", and "slow"? I'm playing in a 2-games-a-day league-what is that?
  15. If you don't have a credit card, buy a VISA gift card, and use that. a $25 card will cover you for a year. I've been at this game for about 6 months; I can see that Anders and friends have spent a lot of time developing this game, and I think it's extremely fair that they begin to get some compensation. Why ever would you think it wasn't?
  16. since nicknames seem good, how about "Bulldog"? Belongs to Mitch Wilson, always played hard, had his teammate's back. Not much NHL time, but did get his name on the Stanley Cup with NJD. Has been fighting ALS going on 4 years now...Immortalized as a "Bulldog" league would be a sporting gesture to an all-around good guy! https://www.facebook.com/277697889082451/photos/717199778465591/
  17. currently doing 2-a-days, not sure how that's defined...but like it
  18. won the league (IHL) and 2nd promotion after 4 seasons. Mediocrity in Bronze awaits with open arms, lol.
  19. Just a suggestion: With Christmas just around the corner, I have asked Santa for a $25 VISA gift card. That'll take care of a year of GPHM at the grandfathered rate of $1.99/month...
  20. I used to worry about goalies-is 2-3 games enough? is 4 too many? We're in Iron, and i have a 74 OVR who gets paid $150,000 and a 71 at $8,000, but the 71 is better in reflexes and athleticism. So I just started alternating them, religiously. The 74 has been leading the league in GAA and Save Pct, and the 71 is usually #3. So there's that, the exact opposite of 10 games at a time...
  21. Perhaps you've followed the NHL long enough to recognize the late, great HOF center, Stan Mikita, Chicago Blackhawks, who wore #21...
  22. I notice some of you are fairly new at this, as am I. I inherited a good roster (Louisbourg Miners), and got promoted. I have a lot of players that are good for LIHL, but may not be so good at the next level. For example, my leading scorer was a 70 OVR center castoff from IHL. My leading goal scorer was an OVR 67. What I'm saying is, take a look at my roster, especially the affiliate. I signed a lot of younger players that are developing at a good rate, and are primed to do some good things at LIHL level. I would like to see other managers get some positive experiences here. Maybe we can do some things to our mutual benefit.... Ken
