Default Off-season Thread

We will use this thread to track various activities for our off-season.

Effective immediately trading can resume. However, we are finished well ahead of the NHL season so it will be some time until re-rates are out. And per my other post, we have to use a new package this year, as the one we've been using is no longer going to be available. 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.
- Someone to maintain and update the draft pick list
- Someone to do the same for UFAs
- Tilley are you good to handle the bonus calcs again for YoY point improvement?

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)

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

- Draft Lottery: TBD but sometime this week ideally. We will run the lottery through the excel tool I created. We will do it on zoom so people can witness the “draw”.

- Our draft: Saturday June 24th, 10 am Calgary time.

- 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
- If you owe conditional picks in the 2023 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
- Activate any players on the IR
- 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.

If picking up a waiver player, does that player remain on the main team (not able to be sent down) for the 2024 season?

I'd be willing to do the UFA list, unless agulati wants to handle it again.

Once the rollover happens the waiver status clears.

I’d be happy to do it again, but if you want to go ahead with it, that’s fine as well!

This tends to be the most important issue. Dont stay then quit a week before the season starts..IF you are too busy to play opt out and come back later. Let the newb draft and go into UFA/RFA

Rollover (Thanks Cam!) is complete:
- All players and contracts have been advanced 1 year
- Draft picks have advanced one years (2023 picks can still be traded but we track via the thread that is set up)
- Teams cap is accurate for next year. $5M has been added to each team to get to a base of $75M. Bonus amounts have also been added.

You may need to clear your cache to see the changes live.

You still have their rights for now unless you release them or decide to Sign them as UFAs. They just disappear from your roster when the roll-over occurred.

Correct, off season thread will let everyone know when the decision will need to be made.

However a GM does not need to make a decision on the UFAs, as of yet.

Good news. I got a copy of the package we intend to use from another league that Knut hooked us up with tonight.
Bad news. I can't figure out how to load it into the sim.

I will put myself under self imposed trade freeze until i figure that out.
