2014-15 Pre-season survey: Metal&Oil's Rhinos

Created by NorwegianOiler on 2014-10-09 08:35:20

 

Where did you finish last season and what are the main reasons you ended up there?
6TH place. While still a respectable place in the standings it was a step back for the Rhinos. I'd say my team suffered from a lack of consistancy.


What have you changed about your team since the end of last season?
I added the Canucks top line and vastly improved my Defense

What is your goal for the season - what would you consider a successful campaign?
After finishing 1 spot lower in the standings in all 3 FHL seasons to date a successful campaign would mean finishing ahead of the rival Heatwave.

Create a "12 forward, 6 defenseman, 2 goalie lineup" from your roster
MY current lineup

Which players do you expect to carry your team?
Jonathan Quick, Jake Muzzin & Ondrej Palat


Do you have any players you expect to surprise people this season?
Mathieu Perreault & Petr Mrazek

What are your team's biggest strengths and weaknesses?
Strength- Defense
Weakness- Caproom

Which teams do you predict as top five in the FHL this season?
Vikings, Glades, Rhinos, Heatwave, Bombers

- Do you have a favorite to win it all?
Yours truly


Which teams do you predict to be near the bottom come season's end?
Chiefs & Stingers (only because I Own their 1st rounders)


Do you have any messages to relay to the fellowship of the FHL?
Keep your head up and Good Luck!!!!



FHL Gazette: Fourth FHL season upcoming!

Created by NorwegianOiler on 2014-10-08 11:23:45

 

FHL GAZETTE (08.10.2014) New season underway: Months have passed since the noble, yet merciless Vikings claimed their first FHL titles, ascending to the throne in both the regular season and playoffs. As the FHL teams take to the ice yet again, the scores are even at 0 and opportunities arise for new franchises to take the next step. Who will it be?

 

No wishes of luck are required, as none of our league's GMs would ever rely on such a fleeting mistress, but they rather forge alliances analytics and pragmatism. Or so we may believe. Except all the homers who stockpile marginal players from their favorite teams, trade for longshot man-crushes, or over-the-hill old timers.

Here's to another competitive campaign, you bastards.



FHL Rule Clarifications and other news

Created by NorwegianOiler on 2014-07-23 07:03:38 (updated by NorwegianOiler on 2014-07-23 07:04:44)

PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT:2014-15 Season:

1) Waiver limit is now 2.5% of the cap limit (rounded to nearest hundred thousand) - specific number will be posted in rule book. The salary cap this season is set at $69 000 000 and our waiver limit is $1 700 000.

2) Entry Level Contracts are now exempt from waivers, regardless of salary. This means players making less than $1 700 000 AND/OR are on their ELCs are exempt from waivers.


3) Since all passive players are automatically made active on July 1st, we must therefore allow up to 40 active players during the off-season. In addition, we will allow a trial period for passive eligible players (ELCs or unsigned drafted players) until November 1st. So, GMs must by November 1st bring their roster to a 35 man active + 5 man passive limit. You may make players passive at any time during the off-season, but note that this means they will remain passive until next July 1st.
 
4) Future FHL entry drafts will be held post-July 1st to allow GMs to drop players before drafting.
 
5) Reminder that any players claimed on waivers MUST henceforth be made active at first chance; and that multiple claims on a player will be decided by last year's standings until November 1st (at which point the lowest ranked team will get the player).
 
6) Reminder that cap hits in the FHL include all bonuses. Confer the AAV column on capgeek for a player's FHL cap hit.
 
 


FHL Rule Amendments for 2014-15 Season

Created by NorwegianOiler on 2014-04-14 23:31:48

PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Rule changes for 2014-15 Season:

1) Waiver limit is now 2.5% of the cap limit (rounded to nearest hundred thousand) - specific number will be posted in rule book. Rationale: Keep waiver limit fluent according to cap inflation

2) Entry Level Contracts are now exempt from waivers, regardless of salary.
Rationale: Easier to scratch youngsters in limbo between AHL and NHL action.

3) Players that have not played any NHL games during the previous season may be dropped to free agency regardless of contract status.
Rationale: Avoid getting stuck with entry level players that never make it. Avoid getting stuck with players on long term IR that never actually retire (E.g. Savard, et.al)

4) Players claimed on waivers MUST be activated at first opportunity by the claiming team.
Rationale: Avoid claim and bury situations.

5) Clarification: Lowest claiming team on the day of the waiver decision gets the player. Exception: Last season's standings used for claims in first month of the FHL season.
Explanation: Easy to enforce, clarification, fairness of early season action

6) The FHL will use the NEW cap hit of NHL players traded with retained salaries. (E.g. Versteeg, Dubnyk, et.al.)
- Rationale: This was really implicit in the current: "The cap hit of each player correlates to his NHL cap hit" rule. Also: Players with ugly contracts may become more valuable if traded and salary retained...
