Default Off-season thread

Folks the off-season upon us.
The purpose of this thread is to provide a general overview on how the off-season will playout. As most of you know, we tackle things in a sequential order, but at this point of the off-season it is difficult to provide firm dates for all items.

A couple of immediate actions/reminders
- If you are unsure if you wish to remain GM of your team please let us know sooner rather than later. It is only fair to the new GM that they have the off-season to prepare their team
- If you have any questions about rules, please ask
- Remember you do NOT need cap space to sign RFAs but you DO need cap space to sign your UFAs. And all UFAs re-signed are 3 years and 1 way
- If you release a player please post in the free agency thread
- If you trade or acquire a draft pick please post in the draft pick thread
- Trading before re-rates is done at your own risk - ratings will change primarily based on the last season's performance.

Immediate things you should be doing:
- Prepare for the draft!
- If you owe conditional picks in the 2017 draft – take care of them sooner rather than later
- Trade, trade, trade!

Generally the order will go like this
- Rollover (1 year advancement on ages and contracts)
- Our draft: Saturday June 17 10 am Calgary time
- Re-rates and new RFA/UFA grids
- Deadline to bring players above waiver threshold to the CPHL
- RFA re-signing
- UFA re-signing
- UFA batches

Also please remember we don't process stuff as often in the off-season. It is a bit of a welcome break for us as well. The sim will be updated after free agency.

Questions?

Couple of questions:
Are roster/salary rules out the window from now until rollover?

If I sign a UFA (not in database) right now, for 3 years, does this 2016-17 count as the first year or should I wait until after rollover if I want the full 3?
Is the cheese rule in effect right now?

What's the deal with sign and trade being so popular this year? I know it's not that same as trading a players rights, but it basically is the same thing.

Roster/Salary cap are all off during the off-season until just before the regular season is ready to start.

If you sign a UFA now 2016/2017 will indeed count as the first year. You can wait but you risk someone else signing that player

The Cheese rule is always active but there's no point in trading 2016/2017 cap. As always, you can't exceed cheese for 2017/2018 either.

I dono't know why there is all this talk about sign and trades but there hasn't actually been an attempted deal yet. Any sign and trades would be rejected though until that UFA has been signed by their current team.

Can we start sending in requests to remove conditions if they have been met?

Do any buyouts we make now come off 16-17 or 17-18?

17-18.
You can release a pending UFA since there would be no buy-out for 17/18, but any other releases should wait until the rollover.

Is it possible to get the order of when things will happen in the offseason? This will impact trading.

Or is this posted somewhere??

Question about recall/threshold waivers:
At 71ov, Matt Dumba is over the D threshold for being waived down.
If I try sending him down to the AHL now, could another team claim him or is that not possible during the off season? How would that work out?

Once we have rerates we will set the new threshold and a date for teams to recall players over that rating

In regards to the Sign and Trade Deals. I am guessing you would still need to have the proper cap space available to sign your UFA right. Because the UFA comes after the RFA re-signing period I doubt there will be many guys out there that would be able to do a sign and trade type of deal.

Exactly which why those deals aren't allowed after all resigning periods are done

Where should we send to request removal of special conditions? I sent an email to cphl1 about a week ago. I have to get some of these cleared up, it's hard to follow right now.
