EKL Fantasy Keeper League 2019-20 season

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the 2nd Season of Elite Keeper League!

 

Welcome to the Elite Keeper League, where we can hone our skills at running a full fledged big league operation and join the ranks of the ELITE!  I will keep this league running full steam ahead with daily updates, and doing my very best to make sure things run smooth and up to date. I am honored to have been given the reigns to this league and I hope to not disappoint. I am always open to new suggestions, looks or anything really. Just feel free to drop me a line anytime with points, questions or even to volunteer. 

 

Below are all the essentials a GM should need. Tylez had re-done some wording for the 2019/20 CBA , and I will be working on the 2020-21 version. Let me know if there are any issues or suggestions and most importantly: if you would like to volunteer for an easy repetitive task to help flow the league along (waivers/IR checks/Spreadsheet verifications et cetera) , it is easy to splinter those off of the main jobs..always happy to have more hands on the oars, drop me a line if you have the time! ~Primal Optimist

SIgnings and News

 

~Beginning with the 2020-2021 season ELC SLIDES will count towards the 50 contract limit: but the SLIDE will still benefit clubs by allowing you to basically keep the player on the cheap contract at least one extra year (or two if you do em back to back; hint hint)...invaluable if used right, which is why the league is adding those contracts in 2020-21 to the total count which must at all times be below 50. This helps us keep assets available for rebuild clubs and those in need of talent. 

 

~all GM's may sign prospects whose rights expire this coming May 1st starting now...the values are predetermined by a chart. Please note if you wish their contract to begin in this season or begin next year! (doing this to save time later since it is a formula thing..no need to hold off)

Why a new thread mid season?

I'm guessing so that he can edit the OP with new GM hirings. Will help keep things organized.

The small.png @Gally have extended blueliner Sam Girard with a 7 year 5 million dollar deal valued at 35 million dollars. The deal includes a Modified No Trade Clause in the 24/25 season and beyond(the players 8th pro season thank you Caboose for catching this): upon request the player must furnish a list of ten teams he will NOT accept a trade to. 

 

Sheets will reflect the new deal today which kicks in for the 20-21 season.

^No trade clause for RFA player?

Quote

 

3.8.2 - Restricted Free Agents

Players who are under 27 years old and have spent less than 7 seasons in the NHL will be classified as Restricted Free Agents. These players must also be tendered qualifying offers before July 1st or they will become Unrestricted Free Agents. Restricted Free Agents are not eligible to receive additional No-Trade or No-Movement clauses in their contracts.

A good point and sharp eye Cabbie, thank you. I am of course a rookie agent; however rules are rules. Stand by. 

 

Fixed. The players contract will have its M-NTC begin in the 24th/25th season, his 8th which thus fits into our rules. I will keep this rule in mind going forward, however I am interpreting it with the NHL in mind and so clauses may kick in for an 8th season if the bridge deal straddles that point in time. 

Better wording added that keeps the spirit with more intuitive definition.

The clause can start in his first "would be UFA" season. In Girard's case, that would be 2024-25 (when his RL M-NTC kicks in - https://www.capfriendly.com/players/samuel-girard).

 

There are a few players on the roster sheets who show as NTC/NMC, even though they're not old enough (i.e. we have Ekblad, who shows as an NMC, but that doesn't start until 2021-22 - https://www.capfriendly.com/players/aaron-ekblad). As long as GMs are aware, it's fine.

precisely. I was looking at his real life extension and didn't exactly notice the rule...which is now reworded to reflect what you and I are saying here.
