    Gentlemen,

    In the wake of numerous compelling arguments, it has been decided that the minimum OV requirement for the 2005-06 season will be 68OV.

    There were many reasons for this decision, many of which have already been discussed on the boards. In the end, an additional concern was that an OV requirement of 70 could force teams into making bad trades solely for the sake of compliance, which would run counter to the spirit of the OV rule.

    I know that a few of you may be annoyed with this decision, but I ask that you understand that it was made with a great deal of hesitation. Certainly, this isn't an absolutely ideal solution, but it is one that is practical and expedient. Moreover, this decision should only minimally impact most HFNHL franchises. I, for one, just look forward to playing the games.

    One final note of clarification - 67.5 equals 68. 67.4 does not. I'm a big fan of using the 5/4 rule for rounding. :)

    Sincerely,

    Matt Gledhill
    HFNHL Commissioner

    Thank you for the confirmation Matt. While my team would make the 70 OV cut if 69.5 counted, I believe this to be the correct decision.

    Now let's get playing.

    BTW, I hope everyone remembers the following section of the salary cap rules:
    so don't bother stuffing people on your farm team, and remember that your salary at start of season is not the final word.

    Also, Matt can correct me if I am wrong, but the minimum OV rating necessary to obtain a percentage of the luxary tax will remain at 70.

    Of note, and I brought this up previously, I don't expect a player to be counted towards my teams payroll if he isn't playing or part of the core 20 players.

    Specifically, Curtis Leschyshyn is my 7th/8th d-man and will not be playing on a healthy roster - in fact, he will spend the season in the minors unless there are injuries. His rating is lower than 6 of my d-men, so I'm obviously not trying to manipulate the payroll here.

    But when you compare Leschyshyn's rating to 1 or 2 of my 4th line forwards, his OV is higher. I just want to make sure he isn't counted as one of my top 20 players. I don't plan on playing him as forward on my 4th line (his rating would be lower as a forward anyway), so I don't expect he should be counted as part of my starting line-up or core top 20.
