I think we need to have the UFA signings posted in a thread. On the sheet is nice and all but there should be documentation on here.

Given that this is an oddball year and things aren't normal, even for the game BOG might want to ammend the rules and timing that relate to UFA signings.
Mainly because using Dec 1st doesn't seem reasonable at this point.
And for the ease of everyone it should be mandated that teams post all UFA signings in the description of their team page withe term and at what point they become eligible to be traded...just so people don't try and bend the rules

UFAs signed in the offseason cannot be traded until the following dates based on the term of the deal. This includes UFAs that were extended before UFA bidding.

1 year UFA contract: Cannot be traded until December 1 of the season contract applies to.
2 year UFA contract: Cannot be traded until July 1 of the second season the contract applies to
3 or more year UFA contract: Cannot be traded until December 1 of the second season the contract applies to

Regarding the Boston team.....
Since NO ONE has heard anything from the guy in literally months something needs to be done before more phantom trades with BOS get done.
This put the MTL GM in a bad spot because the team GM still hasn't come forward to confirm the trade, and still won't answer anyone trying to contact him.
If there's going to be rules, the BOG needs to enforce them when it right to do so.
Personally, I messaged AKY on May 29th....zero response in 3 months.

Activity Policy

Ideally every GM would check into CapFriendly every day. But we understand that life sometimes makes this impossible. If a GM does not respond to a post on their team page for 7 days, they will be replaced. If you are going to be away for longer than 7 days, you must inform the BOG.

Just a thought for next UFA season...

High end UFAs should all be listed in the first 1-2 days. This allows teams to have a better idea of their cap.

counterpoint, say a team like mine has 16m in cap room... and i win both brodie and pageau on day 1 and have another winning bid for coyle (because im looking for a specific position) now im stuck with 2 of the same player because i had to have 1 of them. too much of an all your eggs in one basket kinda deal.

Fair point...then spread them over the first 5 days or so but there shouldn't be high end guys deep into FA.

I wouldn't mind seeing FA broken down even further. Do it by position.
Once all the names are given, group them by position and then break the positions down by days/weeks.
TBH, there's a way FA could be done in 2 weeks, just have to be willing to invest the time to make it work.

The reason I did free agency the way I did was more so to keep GM's engaged in the game, especially with covid going on. Originally it was a 10 day period but then I saw that there was 260 FA's so I had to extend it. I probably wouldn't do position based because then some people get screwed over when they bid for a position. If you do it with multiple positions it's easier to decide who you want more.

Just so we're clear, this is NOT a formal complaint. Simply just a thought so everyone knows.

If the BOG posts that one team WON a UFA bid, that team would assume they have signed a player halting any other potential dealings due to that fact.

Then the next day the BOG comes back and tells said team that they in fact did NOT win that players UFA bid, hence LOSING the player.
No problem, mistakes happen and I accepted the news from both the BOG and the other team who in fact won the player.

My minor issue comes from being told I could not submit a 1 hour late bid on another player from todays list.

It's not my fault the winning bid was posted in error, and now I've also lost out on potentially gaining back another player over 1 hour of time.

THIS is exactly where a more mature thinking BOG would've at the very least allow a late bid since NONE OF THIS IS MY FAULT.

If he wasn't going to make a bid because he thought he had a player but now needs to make a bid on a replacement player due to a BOG error, is there any reason why he shouldn't be able to bid on a player that hasn't even been posted yet? I didn't think this operation had to be super strict, especially when this all started with a mistake on the BOG's end.
