We are saying the same thing, but you say it a little differently. You don't need to designate them a "Toews Rule" player specifically since those players are labeled based on their number of games played. Its as simple as "any player you call up from the farm before the draft will not count against your cap."
What you are looking to add is the flexibility of maybe drafting a player and undoing the call up to make room. For me the key is to ensure you aren't burning a free year by taking a risk and calling up a rookie early.

I'm not sure that we're really saying the same thing, I think you're complicating it.

My suggestion is to simply designate a player as a Toews Rule player which puts them in limbo along with the automatic Toews Rule players where they don't count as one of your 20 farm players, they don't count as one of your 23 skaters at the auction and they don't count against the money you have available at the auction to sign your team. To me what you are describing is that they are part of the 23 skaters but their salary doesn't count which is different.

an update on catching up on scores. I'm working tomorrow as well so my plan is to get all the lineups in the system and scores done on Sunday.

It looks like we're back in business. All of the stats files are in our site now and I ran the scores for the Dec 1st game and all appears to be working as it should.

It's going to take me a bit of time to catch up on adding the missed lineups and running the game scores. The reality is that I'm totally exhausted after walking all day in the cold and snow and will do the work here and there. This is a particularly bad week for me since I'm in Etobicoke mostly so a shitty drive to go along with the work.

Please post your lineups as normal in the website from here on out and feel free to move players from reserve to active.

After the above time teams can't make any trades with each other but you can still pick up and drop players.


Monday Feb 12th 2018 at 12:01 AM ET

As of the above time you can no longer pick up any players.

The last day for pick up requests will be Sunday Feb 11th.

The active rosters expand by 3 players from 23 to 26 players but it's your option to have 23, 24, 25 or 26 players on your active roster.

Your reserve list can still contain up to 5 players.

You can call players up from your farm team to your active roster and freely move them back and forth from the farm to the active roster and they don't have to stay on the farm for 7 days like reserve moves do.

At the end of the season any farm players called up after this date who are on your active roster are automatically placed back on your farm except for any farm players who play 10 or more AHL regular season games during this season.

Having a nice slow Saturday morning this weekend...can't help but notice the Clinton Security teams aka the fake news are in a full lather! God I love when the delusional get upset. It is staggering the length they will go to cover up! It is amazing they can continue to broadcast this as truth in reporting - wait oh yea they gave that up long ago. Carry on.

I know you don't believe in facts but posting this for others about Uranium One and the reality.

And yes we know that some shareholders in the Canadian company gave a lot of money to the Clinton Foundation but that is meaningless since you know Sec Clinton had only a very minor part in the US not having a problem with the shares of a Canadian mining conglomorate that happened to have as a small part of it's company some relatively small US uranium mines.

Opinion: Trump spreads more fake news on Hillary’s ‘uranium deal’

The U.S. is a bit player in the worldwide market for the radioactive metal.

President Trump, there’s a very good reason Congress isn’t investigating Hillary Clinton’s “big uranium deal” with Russia.

It’s because the story is absolute crap — as you well know.

• No, Hillary Clinton didn’t “sell America’s uranium.” She didn’t own it, or control it, and never had. This entire accusation is a farce.

In 2010 the stockholders of a Canadian mining company, Uranium One, accepted a bid from the Russian nuclear-energy agency, Rosatom, for a majority of their shares. They cashed out.

Uranium One was a worldwide producer. Among its assets were some U.S. uranium mines.

The decision was taken by pension-fund managers, other institutional investors and private investors from Canada, the U.S., Europe and elsewhere.

The deal had previously been approved by company management and independent directors on the board.

This is what’s known as “private property,” “commerce” and “capitalism.” Trump should read up on it.

The burden of proof for a U.S. government official to intervene in a Canadian stock-market transaction would have to be pretty high.

• No, Hillary didn’t “approve” the sale, either. She was just one of 14 — count ’em, 14 — people who sat on a U.S. government committee that might, in theory, have intervened but didn’t.

The others on the committee included the secretaries of the Treasury, homeland security, energy and defense; the White House budget director; the attorney general; and the chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers.

So, as far as we know, none of them said peep.

The committee could have intervened if it thought the deal threatened U.S. national security.

Others who could also have intervened in the deal, but saw no reason to, included the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission and regulators in Canada and elsewhere.

• There is a very good reason none of those people or organizations tried to halt the deal. It wasn’t controversial. And if it weren’t for Trump’s cynical demagoguery, it wouldn’t be now.

America is a bit player in worldwide uranium production, and the amount involved was about half a percent — yes, really — of global supply.

Furthermore, uranium has been a drag on the international markets for years. There’s too much of it around. Miners are giving it away for less than it costs to dig up. There was no reason to think of it as an especially precious resource.

In 2010, when Russia agreed to this deal, the price of uranium had already fallen by 75% in three years. And since then it’s halved again. (But uranium prices have perked up a bit since Trump’s election. Long-suffering investors are hoping he’ll approve more nuclear reactors and buy lots more warheads. It’s another reason Vladimir Putin has reason to be so pleased with his protégé.)

• Finally, it’s worth remembering that this entire “story” was whipped up like a meringue by Peter Schweizer, a far-right hack at Breitbart. And, like a meringue, it’s almost all air.
