It's called FORCED TRADE DAY!

 

The NHL should institute the forced trade day, one day before the end of the regular season.

 

Two teams are selected at random on forced trade day.

 

There is then a drawing out of a fancy bingo machine or something, to determine the position of the players which will be traded. So, if defense is drawn, each team will swap a defenseman.

 

The players are then randomly selected from both NHL rosters and instantly swapped automatically, just in time for the playoffs.

 

If the trade puts one team over the salary cap, they pay a penalty against the cap the next season equal to 50% of the cap overage.

 

Would make for some good TV! What do you guys think?

 

 

Imagine:

 

Toronto and Ottawa are selected

 

Position is forward

 

Matthews and Tierney are selected and switch teams

 

 

I think it would be great to round up some extra interest heading into the playoffs every year

I knew even before i got in the thread that this was gonna be great. 

 

I.....dont even know what to say......

 

ahh the internet. It changed the world so much. Now stupid ideas get tweeted and posted and talked about, instead of ridiculed. What an age we live in. The age of information. Truly wondrous. 

 

The ironic thing is, the general population considers themselves more intelligent than our ancestors. The same ones that built the pyramids with no machinery. The same ones that proved the earth isnt flat. The same ones that invented vaccines that have saved more human lives than any other invention, except perhaps penicillin. 

 

Those stupid savages.

i started this as a joke about canadian trade day due to the trades yesterday

it was a comment in 1 post (that is all it is worth)

this guy has picked it up and made a thread about it

even i know my joke is not worthy of generalization and then being made into a topic

Something like this could completely upset what a team has worked to achieve and ruin them. Imagine losing Petey for a tweener? We'd be out of the playoffs for another 5 years +

I know it’s irrelevant, but the odds of a team losing their best player (when Seattle joins) is 1/23,808...

 

Math - 1/32 picked, 1/31 picked, 1/6 positions 1/4 players... if you add in players in the farm it gets more astronomical.

 

P.S. Math might be wrong haven’t done statistics in a long time, but still the odds of it picking 1 specific player is rare.

Could you do so with a karate chop or roundhouse kick, please thanks?  On second thought, both.

 

Also I'm all in favour for FREE BEER DAY.

Not going to provide any substance, huh? No logic to back up your statement?

 

I'm very disappointed.

No further statement is required, it’s a really dumb idea.
