The one thing that always bothers me about reading other people's ACGM posts is that it does not show each trade's impact on the salary cap. I know it shows that info when making the trade, but published ACGM's don't show that in an obvious manner (or I'm not bright enough to find it) when it lists the individual trades. Even simply displaying the contract amounts and term by the players when published would be helpful.

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


I could use that to explain hockey personnel management to some people on RDS or other forum around the net who don't get it and always talk about points money or feeling !!

We should have a little split (3rd row) to show receiving trade team with the contract limit, the salary cap, IR (how many), LTIR (how many). Or litteraly a split screen to show how team are after the deal (line up) ... (would be huge to built such system but could be useful and amazing too)

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

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


I use the Taxi squad as a "call ups" or "notable players who could bounce up and down" section (Wayne Simmonds for example). I agree with NHLfan that re-naming the section might be the best idea - and also a simple solution to the 'problem'

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

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


Sorry, I know it's not directly related to your prompt, but I'd love to have a page for user statistics, so we can see a ranking of ACGMS made, posts and likes.

Another great feature would be the ability to export a team into the following year so all trades and signings are made the year prior. Does that make sense?

Also, the ability to sign players to an extension before their current contract is up.

Another cool feature would be the ability to like a post, instead of currently only being able to like the reply comments.

Change taxi squad to non-roster and make it a full cap hit instead of the taxi squad buried cap, I'd like that

There would be a lot less posts if your (good) suggestion was followed. So many posts just ignore the "other" teams cap hit. Same with trading players with restrictive trade clauses. They aren't waiving to Arizona, Ducks, or Jets just because you want cap relief for "your" team

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


You could rename it: waivers... If I stand corrected, taxi squad's cap hit rules are the exact same as sending a player down to the minors...

It can also prevent ACGMs from sending players to Anaheim with the tittle "waivers"...

Definitely a little late to this thread 😂... But just an idea nonetheless
