We're a little behind the NHL but a month or two ahead of where we were last season, so with that in mind... The 2017-18 HFNHL season will begin Monday October 2nd, with a somewhat condensed preseason schedule. Preseason Plan Start: Monday October 2nd Finish: Monday October 9th Sim plans: There will be 3 game days a night for the duration of the preseason The home page will be updated with a link for the preseason index page. Use it, and only it, to access current rosters. Team direct links at the bottom of the home page are NOT correct at this point. For those wanting a direct link... Index: http://hfnhl.org/2018/preseason/index.html League File: http://hfnhl.org/2018/preseason/HFNHL-PRE.stc Action items & reminders Waivers: All players have been called up to pro rosters. Everyone is required to submit lines by end of night Saturday October 7th so players are on waivers by the end of preseason. If you have a player aged 25+ that was just signed as a UDFA this summer they are exempt from waivers and can be submitted to SimGod for that clearance. Anyone who does not submit lines will face discipline from the Commish and will have their rosters set for them without input. The post with more details can be found here: http://hfboards.mandatory.com/showthread.php?t=2102811&highlight=waivers. Minimum roster requirements: By the start of the regular season all teams must have 3 goalies, 8 defenseman, and 14 forwards under contract in your system. Salary cap/floor: As a reminder, this years cap is $75M and floor is $55.4M. Lines: Submit through Dropbox as usual. If you lost access or can't get in let me know. Those of you who posted lines recently will need to do so again with the new league file please and thank you. Regular Season Plan Pending everyone getting lines in the regular season will tentatively begin Wednesday October 11th. We will run double headers for as long as needed to catch up to the NHL then will be back to one game a night.
