Default Off-season thread

Folks the off-season upon us.
A few key things.

Trading can resume. However, we are finished well ahead of the NHL season so it will be some time until re-rates are out. Re-rate packages have also been more unstable through the pandemic, and while the NHL has gotten a full season in, I don’t know if packages will be using the last 2 years (weighted to the most recent), just this past season or something else. This is important because we use 3rd party re-rating packages, to avoid any bias, so this is out of our control. Teams can trade players and make decisions without those new ratings just know that it is both an opportunity and a risk – as your expected rating may differ from what is in the package. But projecting this is part of the fun of the off-season.

Note that when we start to review potential re-rates the commissioners will be under a trade freeze. We will let the league know when this is happening.
I need volunteers for the following. If people who have done these tasks in the past want to do them again, they are more than welcome to do so.
I need someone to create and maintain the draft pick list and someone to do the same for team UFAs.

Here is the order I expect things to be in, at this stage. Again please appreciate the fluidity of everything so this may change.

- Resumptions of trading: Can start now. Please remember to update any draft picks exchanged in the thread, once it is created.

- Rollover (TBD when Cam can do it and once the UFA and Draft Pick threads are created: 1 year advancement on ages and contracts, will ask Cam to keep the draft picks for now)

- Releasing of players: Once the rollover is done. NOT before.

- Draft Lottery: 2 weeks before our draft. I will book a time to run the lottery through the excel tool I created last year. We will do it on zoom so people can witness the “draw”.

- Our draft: Saturday June 25th, 10 AM (MST)

- Re-rates and new RFA/UFA grids (if re-rate packages are available earlier we will pull this ahead of the draft)
- RFA re-signing
- UFA re-signing
- UFA batches

A couple of immediate actions/reminders
- MOST IMPORTANT: 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. You cannot trade UFA rights. You must re-sign them or not sign them.

- If you release a player please post in the free agency thread. I will process the releases already submitted over the coming days.

- If you trade or acquire a draft pick please post in the draft pick thread

- You an email cphltrade any conditions that need to be deleted
Immediate things you should be doing:

- Prepare for the draft (as best you can)

- If you owe conditional picks in the 2022 draft – take care of them sooner rather than later

- Update your trade block

- If you have players on one way contracts down in the AHL, bring them back up to the CPHL, otherwise you won’t be able to submit UFA offers even for your own players

- Trade, trade, trade!

Couple other things
- You may not sign any free agents that are in the system already. The only ones you can re-sign are ones that aren't in the DB at all that you request to be added
- The watchdog is off its leash. You do not need to be roster or cap compliant in the off-season. Per above, you do need cap space to re-sign or sign a UFA
If anything is unclear PLEASE ask questions.

This part of Grant's list is VERY important:

Every year we get someone who drops out a few days before the draft or before UFAs...its not fair to the league or a new GM...so give it some thought now.

Still looking for folks for these items:

I need someone to create and maintain the draft pick list and someone to do the same for team UFAs.

I can do the Team UFAs, but I’ll probably only able to throw it up this weekend most likely. I can try to do it one of these evenings when I get some free time. Do we have the thread from last year, that I can use as a template?

I forgot, do we do a vote for season awards again? I know we don't reward money or was that just an initiative someone took last year?

Yeah it isn't handled by the league but if someone wants to take the initiative they are more than welcome. Indeed no $ awards though.

I'm good for either weekend on the draft. Someone please hold my hand through off season upkeep. I'm nervous about missing stuff.

I assume Tilley is going to be in charge of the bonus cap calculations? That's usually how it's gone before, right?

The rollover is done (thanks Cam!)
I've also added $5M to each team to get to a base of $75M. Cap for the season over season improvement has also been added.
2022 draft picks traded now must be done so via written conditions and then posted in the ordering thread.
You can now release any player.
If you sent in a release before, send it again as I deleted them all.
