    Gents...

    I've emailed around some offers - but in case I've missed someone -

    I am looking to move Michael Ryder. In return I want a similar player, similar age, ratings, stats, potential, salary, but must be able to play C or LW.

    I've searched and searched, and have been unable to find an 'official' site to move Iggy, Hejduk or Ryder to C or LW - so I am testing this potential.

    thanks

    Matthew

    Does hockeydb count? I am only asking because I don't thinkt hat they ever u pdate their positions. For instance, Jason Blake is listed at center, a position he hasn't played for several years.
     
  4. Hockeydb is absolutely NOT allowed for position changes. Once the player is created in their db (usually when drafted) the position is never updated.

    Aw, come on - we LOVE the pickle!

    :pickle: :pickle: :pickle: :pickle: :pickle: :pickle: :pickle: :pickle: :pickle: :pickle: :pickle:

    He's right up there with the Golfnan, which I'm saving for when my poor team gets mathematically eliminated from the post-season. :golfnana:

    between the bananas and the pickles, you're killing me :)

    Sorry, Matt...I tried to help!!!

    As a sidenote, did anyone notice that, about two years ago, WayMoreSports really tightened up on the number of positions that players could play? For example, guys like Chris Drury are veritable Swiss Army Knives in real life, yet WayMoreSports now says he can only play center. :shakehead

    No Problem, I appreciate it Matt. I've tried the hockeydb route last season to change Prospal back to C, so I already knew that it wasn't accepted. Strange thing is, most websites like the NHL, NHLPA etc. do now list him at C again this season, even though it seems to me that he has only played LW since he returned to the TBL. It's an inexact science for sure.

    The HFNHL rule book quotes:

    The "FORECASTER" (tsn, the star, score.ca, hockeynews, sportsnet.ca (though sportsnet has a different layout) seems to be the most accurate.. even moreso than nhl.com which often seems to get it wrong.

    Are there any other sites that the league would consider?

    Options include:

    www.cnnsi.com
    wikipedia
    'official' team sites
    cbs sportline

    Am I missing any?

    And then on our not acceptable list:

    www.hockeydb.com

    I would definately not include wikipedia, and I would be weary of cnnsi or sporstline, as they don't really cover hockey much.

    The only one I'd add off that suggested list is official team sites.
