Failure to meet minimum GP Requirements:

Dallas (Pete) failed to reach 1100 (1055 games) and has won the draft lottery from the #2 position. That pick will be moved back 1 spot, and will be used to select 2nd overall.
Pete also has some outstanding trades to complete involving draft picks.

Vancouver (Kareem) also fell below 1100 (just 1009 games), as such VAN 1st 2014 will be moved back 1 spot - from 4th, to 5th overall.

For those concerned, penalizing picks does not exclude sanctioning the offending GM.

The two things are obviously not mutually exclusive, are they?

What Nick posted is hardly going to be CC last word on the matter.

The deadline to submit complete and up to date rosters on Fantrax has been set on May 15th.
Dallas, Colorado, St.Louis, Ottawa, Vancouver are teams whose GMs have yet to complete the transition from CBS.

After May 15th sanctions and warnings/possible removal would ensue.

I'm an embarrassment to the league.

Sliding contracts

Postby kyuss » Mon Sep 29, 2014 12:57 pm

Implementation of sliding contracts

Starting with this year roster submission we are going to resemble (albeit in a simplified manner) the NHL when it comes to sliding contracts too.


PLAYERS ELIGIBLE FOR SLIDE:
- 18 and 19 years old players (i.e. not turned 20 yet) as of October 1st who have not played 10 NHL games in their career yet.
- players with 0 NHL games that get signed during the season

HOW IT WORKS
GMs can leave those players without a contract on googledoc so that their contracts do not count towards the limit (50).
Whenever a GM decides to put one of those players in the active roster (lineup or bench) he needs to add his contract on googledoc and as a result from that moment onward that player will automatically add to the total number of contracts.
Once a player is given a contract on googledoc he loses his sliding eligibility for the rest of the season.
(googledocs are locked by Mike after each week so we would have records of GMs cheating on that)



Bottom line, if you want the contract of a player to slide, the only thing you need to do is cancelling (or not adding) his contract on googledoc new spreadsheet (coming soon) for roster submission.
Obviously you can only do that for players eligible for contract slide. Those players will be recognizable on your googledoc thx to a new apposite column.
Please note that from roster submission onward, once the player's contract is added on googledoc you can't take it away anymore.

Given what we have been experiencing in this league in the past, the CC have added a new general rule to prevent unfair tanking, something that not only affects the final draft order, but also alter the rest of the standings as a result of disguised matchups:

Blatant tanking on purpose is not allowed. Not even after reaching gp minimums.
This means when a GM is caught blatantly dressing a worse lineup* than the one available, the league can fix the lineup immediately (this to save the integrity of the matchup and not giving up free pts to the opponent, hence screwing our standings as a result) and apply sanctions to the offending GM.
If the 'irregular' lineup is only detected afterwards, along with appplying sanctions, the advantage earned by dressing a bad lineup on purpose will be taken away in the final standings by adding the points of the stats the offending GM lost in the affected matchup.

* the accused GM will have the chance to explain his lineup decisions if he disagrees with the eventual CC intervention, but the CC will obviously have the final word.

As an example, this means Lee last season would have only got sanctions and no advantages in (lowering) his position in the standings by not dressing his goalies once he reached the GP minimum for G.

What he just did last week (scratching Cam Ward) is another example of a situation where this new regulation can be applied.

Just a quick announcement. The WLT has had a very slight modification. When the CC handed over control of the Avalanche to its new GM it realized that Colorado had been running over the cap most of the year. As such the CC retroactively modified the Avs' lineup to make them compliant. This affects only teams the Avs played and the change in the WLT was negligible (to the effect of 3 wins-ish).

The BBKL trade deadline has been set for Monday, March 2nd, at 6p.m. ET.

That is 3hrs after the NHL trade deadline, and 1h before the roster lock of our second last week of the regular season.

After the deadline, no BBKL team will be allowed to complete and announce trades before the end of the BBKL playoffs.



The second and final C/W update will be based on a FOR list generated off the NHL stats as of Monday, February 16th (i.e. after Sunday 15th games are completed and taken into account) and will apply to February 23rd roster lock.
