Ryan Murray is $3 of garbage. His only value is that he is $3. Sutter is a 3rd liner on VAN. Emelin is only slightly better than EMPTY. The Kings prospect might turn into something... you have another Kings prospect. Two 1sts is a high price to some, but you know what I think about 1sts. John likely values them considerably more. The cash is significant.

You got probably the 2nd best player in our pool, but he's injured, but as long as he's healthy during the playoffs...

...and Benn who won the Art Ross not long ago.

I think you made a great trade.

What is the contingency on the 19 1st pick? Shouldn’t that be disclosed. If not officially. Would be fun to see

It is disclosed in the AHL forum.

Posted: Wed Oct 04, 2017 12:09 am    Post subject: Contingency   The following contingency will be completely up to Broadway and Whalers to enforce 

If the 2019 pick ends up in the top 3 overall, the Whalers have the option to defer the pick till 2020

I think I did too. I think John also did very well, because those picks and Vilardi could still be good/great players. Im hoping I make his picks very late ones in the first round, and less of a lock type prospect. $5 in each year is a significant amount.

I just decided I was getting close to my version of a tear down, and before I did that, I was going to use my assets to take another run at it, this year and next.

my goal is to never tear down and give myself a chance each season.

I think the Big M's are the same or better on defense once healthy but we don't have the same depth at forward as last year.

Goalies ? Who can ever really tell at the start of the season.

I like teardowns. Not because I want to suck, but because I like the ability to draft a true keeper team, one that grows from pure infancy like my team did when I joined.
I dont like the idea of building thru trades and the auction, thats boring and I feel that its really based more on other factors than pure hockey know how.

Ok Dale

Since you asked here are
Pre season predictions.

East
Fighting for title- Gothic
Fighting for playoff spot- Mustangs, Steelheads, Underdogs
Out of playoffs - Thieves

West
Fighting for title- Combo, Ravens, Delicious, Shootloose, Warfare
Fighting for playoff spot-
Out of playoffs -

North
Fighting for title- Whalers, Big M
Fighting for playoff spot- Shortstackers, Ingman, Greaseballs
Out of playoffs -

South
Fighting for title- Swackers, Dealers
Fighting for playoff spot- Eagles, Shooters
Out of playoffs - Broadway

I am waiting for your predictions( kinda late this year).

I think one of the closest matches will be fight for last spot between Thieves/Broadway.

It will actually take a lot of work trying to lose as much as possible while still following ant-tanking rules.

-Maximum number of empty goalie nights.
-Lowest cap floor possible.
-Minimum # of deference(6) to create as many empty defenceman spots as possible or
-Minimum # of forwards(10) to create as many empty forward spots as possible.
-Doubling and tripling up on NHL teams.

I'm definitely tanking, but also trying to win every game as we should do for the spirit of the pool. I even traded for a dmen to ensure I don't have too many empty spots on D and will use Aho or Patrick when available before callups and in the spring. I hope Broadway does the same and we have a fun, fair race to the bottom lol.

nothing wrong with rebuilding if your team is in that position. The nice thing is that it's a much shorter process now.

As long as I can keep lucky Bobing some players I hope that my team is never in that position.
