2014-15 Regular Season: Schedule update, Trade deadline deals, Waiver claims

SCHEDULE UPDATE

There are approximately three schedule periods left before playoffs. If this plays out as expected, playoffs begin next Friday, April 5.

Please make sure you play your games as possible or make your team available for other players to play the CPU. Every point counts as we get closer to playoffs; 5 points separates 6th from 11th in the East, 6 points separates 7th through 10th in the West. Several divisions (and first-round home ice) are still up for grabs.

SCHEDULE ADVANCE TUESDAY MORNING

Hi all,

Due to the schedule advance on Saturday morning, and an extended EA/GMC server outage yesterday, we’ve had a few request to extend the weekend schedule period.

The current schedule period will last through tomorrow morning. We will advance the schedule to the Dec. 15-28 period at that time.

After this, we will be back to our usual Friday/Monday advances.

Posted in General | Comments Off on SCHEDULE ADVANCE TUESDAY MORNING

2014-15 Regular Season: Trades through 11/27/2014, Waivers, RFA Signing Deadline, Short Schedule Period

TRADE UPDATES

The following trades were accepted and processed as of this morning:

WAIVER CLAIMS

  • Buffalo claimed C S. Couturier off waivers from Detroit.
  • Buffalo claimed D B. Sopel off waivers from Florida.
  • Calgary claimed C N. Backstrom off waivers from Chicago.

RFA SIGNING DEADLINE

This is the final schedule period where you can sign a qualified RFA and have him join your roster. After December 1st, any signed RFA is ineligible to join your roster until next season.

SHORT SCHEDULE PERIOD

Due to the RFA deadline, this schedule period runs three days, 11/28 through 11/30. Most teams have only one game, so we will be advancing the schedule again tomorrow morning.

SITE UPDATES

There is a new Player Comparison feature to view full attributes of two players side-by-side. There’s a link on the site menu, but you can also check off two players on the Search page to show them.

The Search page now allows use of a pipe character (“|”) in the Name field to search two or more last names at once.

I have switched to an in-line player details viewer on all pages instead of the modal. This allows you to expand multiple players at once.

Player photos are now included where applicable.

WAIVER WIRE IN EFFECT

A reminder that the waiver wire is in full effect for this schedule period and through the end of the season.

Players who must clear waivers are marked as “Yes” under the waivers column in roster or contract view. If you move a waiver-eligible player to your minor league team, anyone else in the league has an opportunity to claim that player through the end of the current schedule period.

Waivers do not apply when calling players up from the minors.

If multiple teams put in waiver claims for the same player, the team with the worst overall record will receive the player.

NOTE: If you use the Assistant Coach Best Lines feature, then you absolutely run the risk of players being put on waivers without notice, particularly when other players come back from injury. Make sure you keep an eye on your roster. If you mess up and someone hits the waiver wire, there’s no going back.

SITE UPDATES

  • The schedule now includes a head-to-head comparison for each upcoming game.
  • The Roster and Depth Chart pages now correctly flag players who are injured.

I will continue to update the site close to daily, but it will be updated at least on the days of schedule advances (Monday & Friday).
