Colorado Avalanche

Colorado would like to propose the idea of removing trade restrictions on UFA signings.
We believe that by allowing to trade UFAs and not having to wait for AAV reasons this will create more life and energy within the game.

I would like to hear other GMs thoughts on this.

We went into ufa signings knowing full well there would be trade restrictions on all signed ufa players. You have picks, prospects, and rfa players still eligible to be traded. The trade rules in place are to keep competitive balance within the game.

How do rules restricting trades create competitive balance.

Because our free agency is based on a 1 time blind bid process? Very easy for tanking teams and teams with a rich prospect pool to take advantage of that scenario. "Hey sign player xyz to this contract and retain for me and ill send you this..."

Not to mention keeping a little realism in the game? How many recently signed ufas get traded immediately after signing a deal with a team? Prospects, picks, rfas all the time. Ufa it never happens.

Colorado Avalanche

On a cold January night, Joe Sakic had, what would be, the final meeting with a disgruntled Mikko Rantanen.
Mikko Rantanen had quietly asked for a trade after seeing Pierre-Luc Dubois enter his division.

The Colorado Avalanche are here to announce that they have made a trade with the Vancouver Canucks.
Sending the Mikko Rantanen to Vancouver.
In return, the Ave's will receive Quinn Hughes.

Cale Makar would like to be the first person to welcome Quinn to the great city of Denver.

Guys...

Waiver placements every week will be on
Sunday Monday Tuesday

Waiver claims will be allowed
Tuesday-Friday

Saturday will be for determining claims.

If you are planning on placing a guy on waivers. add them to your taxi squad and try and only post on the sunday, monday, and tuesday. For example, I have dal colle on my taxi squad right now. he will posted to waivers next week.

Colorado Avalanche

Per BOG and GM Game Trust:

Over the offseason, you were caught cheating by deleting around 5 contracts off your roster to sign additional free agents. You were given a VERY lenient punishment by BOG to keep Colin Wilson on your active roster under the ltir section where realistically it would count as a dead contract you would be forced to carry for your actions, as a consequence. WE (all 8 of us) but felt that this wasnt a big deal it carried no cap weight and you had 49 other roster spots to make due with. Last week you decided screw the punishment you were above the rest of the game and its integrity and decided to trade colin wilson. When bog reminded you this was your penalty, you went to multiple members to get someone to change their tune on a punishment that was already set in stone. Again this was not that big of a deal. This was your own doing. Every trade you make is subject to reversal, you only make lopsided deals and its just gotten to the point where you downright refusing to comply with this one tiny penalty that were set for you BASED ON YOUR ACTIONS. We (both BOG and GM GAME Trust) deliberated for a few days on this and what the right course of action would be, unfortunately we all agreed that we truly have no other choice but to let you go and find a new gm for Colorado.

Jmac this is absolutely false. This wasn't an attack. The only reason you're trade couldn't go through, or the other, was because this was happening. And it would have to be up to a new gm if they wanted to do any trades

Personally think that has been a targeted attack for years within the game because y'all don't like Mike. Same can be said about Booth and his "lopsided" deals.
Was Rantanen for Hughes lopsided? No. It was an 100pt winger for a top pairing D. That would be like trading Patty Kane for Hughes and y'all probably wouldn't have had a problem with it.
This is a blatant attack against someone you dislike, yet other coaches who are problem get to stay in the game (i.e. I mentioned wanting to kill children on Twitter, Max, and I'm permabanned from Twitter, Dangles).



Effective immediately, I'm stepping down as the Isles GM. Pick and choose your battles folks, I don't think Mike was an issue, y'all just made it an issue by not allowing him to make a trade and policing everything be did.

Good day


Ex GM
New York Islanders


Hate to ignite the fire again but Rantanens career high is 87.

Good day
