Due to challenges encountered we currently find ourselves looking at a 2004/05 season that would not start until April at the earliest and there is a serious question at hand. Do we hold a 2004/05 season in any form or focus efforts of making sure the 2005/06 season is ready promptly? The admin team is divided on the subject itself but on a matter this significant it is really up to all of as as GM's and AGM's to decide if we are committed enough to salvage a 2004/05 season. The Admin team will make it's committment to the time required but the question is whether a sufficient number of GM's can make the same commitment. Given that any season would need to be abbreviated or extremely accelerated there are some issues that arise. (i) Key dates in the season would come and go quickly and as a result team management (budgets, trades, etc.) would be very compressed. (ii) Line management due to injuries would require close attention. (iii) Season and playoffs going well into the summer (ie GM's on vacation). When responding to this poll we request that you seriously consider whether, given the aforementioned challenges, you are willing as a GM to actively manage your team. Leaving things such as injuries unattended cannot be acceptable given the tight schedule. A poll has been opened (link below) for you to cast your votes. Also please only one response per team. If there is an AGM discuss it with them and place only 1 vote per team. http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/hfnhl/surveys?id=1712875 This poll will remain open until Friday and any non-responses will be considered disinterest.
