TRADE DEADLINE

Friday February 2nd 2018 at 11:59 PM ET

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

ROSTERS FROZEN AND EXPANDED

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.

Most of you know that I am a fiscal conservative. If you didn't, you know now. I didn't vote for Trump and Im pretty sure I wouldn't have voted for Bernie Sanders. Would have looked for a 3rd candidate.

What Trump just said about Obama, Bush and all the other former presidents in regards to calling families of the Fallen military is beyond unforgivable. This man truly is an abominable human being.

He lost me when he said McCain wasn't a hero because he likes people who aren't captured

The man makes me sick

Ezra Klein‏Verified account @ezraklein 6h6 hours ago
Trump mocked McCain for getting captured, attacked a Gold Star family, lied about Obama calling the families of fallen soldiers, and politicized Kelly’s son's death. This is not a man burdened by empathy for those who served.

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.
