  1. Yes, we are working the phones as we speak. Teams are welcome to inquire for available players if they are willing to take on cap space. If I am not able to make a deal tonight to free up space I will make a roster move regardless.
  2. Sorry, missed that. Fixed.
  3. All updates complete until noon today.
  4. Be aware that you currently do not have enough cap room in the minors to assign McElhinney, nor do you have an open roster spot in the majors for a goalie.
  5. LEAGUE ANNOUNCEMENT: Las Vegas Golden Knights Expansion and Rules The CDCGML will be adding an expansion team this off-season for the 2017-18 season, the Las Vegas Golden Knights, just as the NHL will be. The League Executive has discussed the options surrounding the way we will accomplish this and have laid out our plan to execute it, and will be listening for feedback if there are any significant issues that we may have missed. League Alignment: The LVGK will play in the Pacific Division. To balance the Conferences and division, the Columbus Blue Jackets will be shifting to the Metropolitan Division in the Eastern Conference. Draft Eligibility: The CDCGML will be following the guidelines that the NHL has laid out, meaning the players that are eligible/not eligible will be the same as their eligibility in real life (with the following exception below). This means that we are following their games played and years under professional contract as determined by the NHL. NMC Exception: We will be honouring NMCs that are signed in the CDCGML, not the NHL. This means that any player who has a NMC in the CDCGML must be protected by their CDCGML club. Those who have one in real life but not here do not need to be protected. *(Some players may be willing to waive their NMCs, as per real life, to leave themselves exposed but that will only be in very rare circumstances and likely not at all). Protected Lists: As per * Clubs will have two options for players they wish to protect in the Expansion Draft: a) Seven forwards, three defensemen and one goaltender b ) Eight skaters (forwards/defensemen) and one goaltender * All players who have currently effective and continuing "No Movement" clauses at the time of the Expansion Draft (and who to decline to waive such clauses) must be protected (and will be counted toward their club's applicable protection limits). * All first- and second-year professionals, as well as all unsigned draft choices, will be exempt from selection (and will not be counted toward their club's applicable protection limits). Player Exposure Requirements: As per * All Clubs must meet the following minimum requirements regarding players exposed for selection in the Expansion Draft: i) One defenseman who is a) under contract in 2017-18 and b ) played in 40 or more NHL games the prior season OR played in 70 or more NHL games in the prior two seasons. ii) Two forwards who are a) under contract in 2017-18 and b ) played in 40 or more NHL games the prior season OR played in 70 or more NHL games in the prior two seasons. iii) One goaltender who is under contract in 2017-18 or will be a restricted free agent at the expiration of his current contract immediately prior to 2017-18. If the club elects to make a restricted free agent goaltender available in order to meet this requirement, that goaltender must have received his qualifying offer prior to the submission of the club's protected list. * Players with potential career-ending injuries who have missed more than the previous 60 consecutive games (or who otherwise have been confirmed to have a career-threatening injury) may not be used to satisfy a club's player exposure requirements, unless approval is received from the NHL. Such players also may be deemed exempt from selection by the League. CDCGML Eligibility List: A list of eligible players and exempt players will be created and maintained by theminister once the regular season has been concluded. This tool will be made available for the ease and clarity of both the resident GMs and the incoming GM of the Golden Knights. Regulations Relating to the Expansion Franchise: * The Las Vegas franchise must select one player from each presently existing club for a total of 30 players . * The Las Vegas franchise must select the following number of players at each position: 14 forwards, nine defensemen and three goaltenders. * The Las Vegas franchise must select a minimum of 20 players who are under contract for the 2017-18 season. * The Las Vegas franchise must select players with an aggregate Expansion Draft value that is between 60-100% of the prior season's upper limit for the salary cap. * The Las Vegas franchise may not buy out any of the players selected in the Expansion Draft earlier than the summer following its first season. 2017 CDCGML Draft Lottery: - The Las Vegas franchise will be given the same odds in the 2017 CDCGML Draft Lottery as the team finishing with the third-fewest points during the 2016-17 regular season. (The same selection spot as the NHL Golden Knights). - The Las Vegas franchise's First Round selection in the 2017 CDCGML Draft will be determined in accordance with the 2017 NHL Draft Lottery and, as a result, the Las Vegas franchise will be guaranteed no lower than the sixth overall selection. - The Las Vegas franchise then will select third in each subsequent round of the 2017 CDCGML Draft (subject to trades and other potential player transactions). Significant Dates: Just as we do for Entry drafts, the team protected lists and the LV selection process will be undertaken before the actual draft. This is to ensure that teams must make their own decisions about who to choose to expose rather than mimicking the moves of the NHL teams. This also adds the possibility that the LV GM will have a better spread of players on NHL teams. Friday June 16, 2016 (11:59pm PST): The 30 CDCGML Clubs must submit their Protection List. Monday June 19, 2016 (11:59pm PST): The Las Vegas GM must submit their Selection List, and will be announced the following day at noon PST. NHL Rules: The LV Golden Knights General Manager Selection Process: Any and all interested parties will be eligible to submit an application to be the new Las Vegas GM. This includes both current GMs and outside candidates without malice, meaning there are no penalties for current GMs to apply. Applications will not be accepted prior to the end of the CDCGML regular Season. Questions? Comments?
  6. TRADE: There has been a trade between the Arizona Coyotes and the St. Louis Blues (retroactive to Dec. 6, 2016). To Arizona: G Darcy Kuemper To St. Louis: G Marek Mazanec , 2017 MIN 4th Round Pick
  7. TRADE: There has been a trade between the Carolina Hurricanes and the St. Louis Blues (retroactive to Dec. 5, 2016). To Carolina: F Logan Shaw To St. Louis: 2017 CAR 3rd Round Pick
  8. Sedins - You only acknowledge the possibility of moving them the week before they are actually moved. Until then you deny it or you get another Luongo situation. And they can't realistically be moved until after the expansion draft because no team will be willing to give up assets and protect them. Ipso facto, you don't acknowledge that possibility this year and, in fact, you deny it to retain a seller's market on them Loui - Needed to be here for when Sedins leave. Burr - Unless the market offers at least a 3rd round pick it's essentially moot anyway. Edler - The value for him would not be present until after the expansion draft as teams can only protect 3 players. Afterwards, when there is a redistribution of defensemen, then maybe. Again, deny his availability to maintain value and keep the dressing room non-toxic. Miller - State his value to your organization and that you might re-sign him so that buyers will understand you have a minimum price. Likely the least issue as far as NTC waiving since he would be willing to go to a contender. Hansen - Has only a Limited NTC and would be purchased by a contender. If they want to trade him, and the value is there, they don't have to ask. Long story short... of course you say you aren't going to ask players to waive their NTC... not at this time of year. It's only because people/media can't seem to understand that timing makes a difference that they are making an issue of it. It's a non-issue in December.
