Based on the discussion in the GM Game Twitter group chat earlier today, the BOG has decided that the UDFA draft and Unrestricted Free Agency bidding will not take place before June 1st. BOG will not discuss or announce dates for either of the two before June 1st as well. As our game is based off of the NHL's regular season, and the unlikelihood that the 2020-2021 NHL regular season will begin in October, it does not make sense to rush our offseason and have to wait an elongated period of time for the game to begin.

The new BOG has decided upon reps for each division for UFA/RFA contract extensions.

Pacific - <a href="/users/Gronk" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener"><a href="/users/Gronk" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@Gronk</a></a>
Central - <a href="/users/eklund29" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener"><a href="/users/eklund29" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@eklund29</a></a>
Metro - <a href="/users/TabooPenguo" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener"><a href="/users/TabooPenguo" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@TabooPenguo</a></a>
Atlantic - <a href="/users/krakowitz" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener"><a href="/users/krakowitz" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@krakowitz</a></a>

Please contact your division's rep to discuss any player you wish to extend before free agency. We are still in discussion on the date and time for the UDFA draft, expect that announcement soon.

(Please contact me if you notice anyone's @ missing, as I just copied and pasted from the previous post)

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>DragonRaptorHybrid</b></div><div>i mean, his peak value would've been pre-trade deadline, but Jim Rutherford was like, "well, i'd rather have 2 good goalies for the playoffs," and, well, uh, it paid off. Fleury carried them through the first 2 rounds, and, when Murray was good to go from whatever injury he had, he picked up the torch and carried them to a Stanley Cup.

<a href="https://deadspin.com/suddenly-fleury-1794288989" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">Deadspin summed it up pretty well:</a> <div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quote:</div>Fleury was a likely trade deadline target for a number of teams, and there was some surprise that he stayed put. (A limited no-trade clause may have helped.) But GM Jim Rutherford has said all along that he’d prefer to keep Fleury, and this is exactly why. You never know when you’ll need a 1B goalie to step in in the most crucial part of the season. You always know that it’s not possible to have enough goaltending. No matter what happens from here out, last night validated Rutherford’s decision. </div></div></div>

Fleury had an NMC and reportedly told Rutherford the only team he wanted to go to was Vegas, so he waived his NMC to be exposed in the expansion draft. However, Bryan Rust was also exposed and Vegas apparently told the Penguins they were taking Bryan Rust to force them to give up something for Vegas to take Fleury, fulfilling Fleury's wish which clearly was a great choice.
