Default Clarity/Tweak to re-call waiver rule

This one causes problems every year, to the point that I even described it wrong it my initial post about RFAs.
To step back, the waive recall cut off rule was created to counteract a pattern of GMs stashing players 23 years and younger in the minor to free up as much cap space as possible.
So that could mean, for instance, that I could put guys like Seth Jones, Andrei Barkov and Nathan Mackinnon all in the AHL to give me more cap space to bid on UFAs.
However, it has constantly provided confusion and once we get into the season is near impossible to enforce, particularly since the sim sometimes dresses guys randomly.

So we are going to try and simplify this.

You must have any player 23 years or younger and a rating above the cutpoint (according to the grids) on your main CPHL roster when you submit your UFA re-signing or open batch bids. In other words their salary MUST be accounted for in terms of how much space you have to make those bids.

Once we are done with all UFA bids, then you have the freedom to move these players up and down as part of your roster management.

Questions?

Yeah unless they have 0 years left on their deals. In that case you need to sign them and get them in the NHL

Just making note that the cut off line in the excell says older

Quote:
Waiver cut off - all players at or above and 24 or older must be in CPHL or be subject to recall waivers
We are doing 23 and younger like stated and not as lited on the excel. So someone like Taylor Beck rated 67 and just above the cutoff line but since he's 26 I can keep him down till after FA

Yeah I think I uploaded a corrected spreadsheet but indeed it is indeed 23 and younger.
And yes you are right, a guy like Beck can stay down.
