This is a follow up to the successful North American Hockey League. The North American Hockey League commissioner's office decided to fold. However, the core 10 teams wanted to stay together but reshuffle the decks. With the inclusion of a few more teams they decided to find a new commissioner and create the league all over again. Sticking with the teams they had from previous leagues, they decided this was the league that would be the future of hockey in all of North America. Basic Rundown Phase 1 - Fantasy Draft There will be a fantasy draft of 20 rounds, with 12-14 teams picking per round. The draft order will be snaked. The fantasy draft will be used to fill out the NNHL rosters. Any players that are not drafted in the fantasy draft will be put into free agency. GM's that decide on their club will inherit their team's real life farm system. Phase 2 - Commencement of the 2010-2011 Season The season picks up 2 weeks before the trade deadline. ALL TRADES MUST BE SENT TO ME FOR APPROVAL PRIOR TO BEING ACCEPTED. Teams will use this time to mold their team before the playoff run. Phase 3 - Playoffs Since it is a small league, 12-14 teams (with 6-7 teams per conference obviously) only 4 teams from each conference will make the playoffs. Teams will be divided based on Eastern and Western Conference Standings in association with the National Hockey League Playoff rounds will be determined based off votes, with following seasons potentially being changed to some other deciding factor. Phase 3 - Offseason The offseason will then commence. The NHL Entry draft will be held using the 2011 draft class. Free Agency then follows, again using the 2011 free agent class. AGENTS: Forwards: Defensemen: Goalies: Things of Note The Salary Cap is $77.5 million When creating rosters, only count caphits. Caphits can be found using http://www.capgeek.com There is no need to factor in bonuses when calculating your team's payroll Potential GM's will be voted on by the 10 core members of the previous league to determine merit Any more questions/concerns feel free to PM myself General chat room for this game is: http://xat.com/NorthAmericanHockeyLeague GM List: Eastern Conference New York Islanders - IslesRock4 New York Rangers - NYSportsFan6230 Philadelphia Flyers - flyguy Montreal Canadiens - habsman56 Ottawa Senators - Ktown Sens Fan 19 Toronto Maple Leafs - chezzie11 Western Conference Nashville Predators - Capital Punishment Colorado Avalanche- Moses Doughty Dallas Stars - Modo Los Angeles Kings - hockeyalltheway Vancouver Canucks - JumpierPegasus Detroit Red Wings - RedwingsnCudi13 Best of luck to the participants.
