Any interest in new drop zone sections that would improve your use?

Possibly Suspended, Suspended without pay, Non-Roster, etc?

I think most Canuck fans would like a home to have long ongoing discussions about our lovable losers. There are not any good sites for discussion so having a blogger for teams where the fans can go and have general chats would be great.

I’d suggest going to the “Canucks” forum, creating a discussion/season thread, and @ ing fellow Canucks fans who may be interested for something like that. Fanbase like Washington, Montreal, Toronto, and Tampa Bay have created similar threads in their forum sections if you’re interested in examples on the website.

Here’s the Capitals one linked For reference

I think we could also stand to get rid of the Taxi Squad section.

I know it's been discussed internally and externally to some extent but I'd like to continue pushing a secondary AGM section exclusive for lines and custom rosters.

The trouble with the taxi squad section is that it has been used by tens of thousands of teams, so those players are already set to that section

To further clarify, getting rid of the Taxi Squad function thus means having to get rid of a whole pisspot of AGMs? And I suppose there isn't an easy way to go about doing that, is there?

Well the trouble is it essentially leaves those players in limbo, don't necessary have to delete the teams

I think it would be useful, especially to spare Ducks fans, to have a generic “traded away” bucket to move unwanted players without having to tag another team.

Would probably have to balance with something to avoid overuse and ensure people are submitting complete lineups.

Maybe it is a feature that could be given to handful of users to see how it goes.

Could just rename the section, but keep the function and previous teams. I dunno “visible minors”…”up next”…”season call-ups”….

Non-Roster by but with it's own sub-description field to specify what the section is being used to display.

[Non-Roster]: (Insert text here) ie: Call Up List
(Limited number of characters so it doesn't become a second description field, but handled the same way.)

Mentioning this again as well, but a trade option for "To any team" without needing to specify a team. (NHL Logo above Anaheim when selecting a trade partner.)

Not really a drop zone but a way to roll forward an ACGM to the following season would be cool

I mean for the amount of time and number of players suspensions apply to, I almost don't think its even that worth it really but obviously if its an easy enough patch, then by all means, any improvement is worth it.

IMO for drop zone sections, whenever im doing an AGM I like to do it for AHL lineups also using the non roster section. And kind of use the taxi squad as the section for all other players playing in the various leagues. So an AHL section would be cool. Taxi squad section is kind of pointless now so definitely should be renamed to something more relevant.



Also since we're all sneaking in other requests squinting with tongue out

- Option to mutually terminate a player/relinquish drafted player rights.... instead of always trading said player to Anaheim. squinty smile
- Have an option to include NMC/NTC in signing UFA's. Or resigning players. Just another level detail.
- Have created players show all tile info such as position, term, etc just like normal player tiles. This one is more of a pet peeve than anything though.

A little thing that could be nice, for created players have info visible on the lines page like normal players except the logo obviously.

Replace the name taxi squad by AHL next season (or next site update) so the section evolve instead of disapear! Could be helpful for those who want to build their team on 2 level of hockey.

THIS ! We really need to be able to have year 1 2 3 or 4 in one AGM instead of spamming the main board (and in the main board showing how many years are covered)

I know it's not in your option but can we include the threeway trade of the trade machine in the AGM option too??

This might be off topic, but how do you re-sign on Armchair-Gms?

And yes, I think we would all love that.

Oh also, listing height and weight on their player card/trade list please . (If that makes sense).

On other hand if you add a check box so we can show or not our AHL team this could be fun for those who love to build their rookie roster with the active nhl team ( I know this add more than 400 players but this could be interesting to build proper professional roster from top-down). Would be fun to have the option from NHL or AHL in the interactive Armchair too.

cuz when you creat a new team you can trade, create a player and sign UFA RFA and reserve list players (there is 5 buttons at the top of the armchair)

Literally have been wanting this for awhile. Being able to push a roster out even 2-3 more years would be incredibly useful.
