Johnny Gaudreau>any Casucks

Edler, Markstrom, Hansen, 2nd round pick 2014 to Islanders for Ryan Strome, 5th overall pick 2014

This is fairly even as well.

Although some people will not like my decision, but I feel its the best way to get UFA/RFA's over with, fast, and quickly.

Now, actual free-agency (end of this season) will be different. But this is how I want you guys to re-sign your pending players.

So I'll use players that have already been drafted as an example.

So suppose Philadelphia wants to sign Alexander Edler heres what I want from him.

Name: Alexander Edler
Position: Defenseman
Points this year: 49 points (11g/38a)
Player Status: UFA

There is the player bio. Now I want a small description of why he wants to retain Edler. While its going to be small (maximum 2 lines) make sure you really put lots of punch into it. Example:

Philadelphia is built off its defense, and Edler is the cornerstone to it. After a successful playoff run, we feel we can make it farther next year, and can only do so if we have Edler on our top pairing.

See how powerful it was? Described the team, Edlers presence on it, teams success last year, and Edlers role.

Now that's it! Now I will give you a ball-park figure that can be negotiable to a certain extent.

How do I get the ball-park?

I take 5 contracts of similar players, 50 point defenseman, who have signed a contract the last two years with similar production, and get the average and that's my number.

So in this case, I'd take Enstrom (5.75), Yandle (5.25), Carle (5.5), Byfuglien (5.2), Suter (7.538)

So the ball-park number is 5.8m.

Then a little negotiating on the numbers (likely a 200-400k difference MAX) and possible additions of a NTC/NMC, and discussion of terms, then boom. Contract done.

(Now in this example it was after the season. If you have a UFA/RFA to sign now, you obviously can't say how your team has done. So you're going to have to do a realistic prediction based on who you have drafted)


I like this idea. It will be done quick and easy.

I might have a small issue with the "no paragraphs" since i love to type long essays and i expect you to read them, but you can't be reading 40 of these a day. It's a solid idea

Not really a fan of that UFA thing, but if we can't find an impartial agent it's really the only option.

You guys realize its mainly for RFA's, right now?

Del Zotto, Kane, Kulikov, Carlson, etc...

Theres not many top UFA's available except CDC's favorite.

Teams should have no reason losing there RFA's, especially in the first year.

Back from my 2 day trip and wow, great to see the pace get much better and fellow GMs making really good picks. As for the whole UFA thing, it seems pretty good for resigning but in the FA pool I would prefer it to be as long as the GM wants to do it.

Dying for the 7th and 8th rounds to come, been dying seeing all those great players going.

If any GM wouldn't mind moving their 6th round pick for a fair deal, please PM me, thanks!

Love the idea. Plus Edler's contract is pretty much done now. :bigblush: For Free Agency however, expect some paragraphs from me.

I have a few players that I am leaning towards picking with my next pick. They all have similar stats, I just hope whoever I pick will have the best stats this coming season.

There's a slight chance I might not be here when it's my pick. I'm doing stuff on the weekend.

Most likely though, I'll be here in time to make my pick as always. :picard:

The Phoenix Coyotes are ecstatic to select this late: Adam Larsson



...We took into consideration how much of a rarity it is to select stud dmen and have them a part of a roster; seeing Larsson up there and acknowledging how much he did in his rookie campaign and how much potential he has yet to develop into, we (Myslelf and AGM Doughty) couldn't resist but take him - he will be a Norris candidate some years from now and we are pleased to have picked up this high of talent this late :)
