Just a heads up before the RFA signings actually happen, this version of the game is designed to last a minimum of 2 years. The maximum is unknown, but be prepared for a multiple-season version.

Small News Announcement:

Due to the stepping down of <a href="/users/Bo53Horvat" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@Bo53Horvat</a> the BOG would like to announce that <a href="/users/hanson493" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener"><a href="/users/hanson493" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@hanson493</a></a> will be his replacement on the BOG. The GM position in New York (Rangers) will be announced on a later date and the MOD spot will most likely be taken over by <a href="/users/Mr_Cap" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener"><a href="/users/Mr_Cap" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@Mr_Cap</a></a>.

I heard this was corrected, but just so the BOG is aware, when an LTIR eligible player is NOT placed on LTIR by their (RL) team, it is for cap management purposes only. We manage our own cap, so the decision of whether to place the player on IR or LTIR should be up to us. Provided we return them to the roster when healthy of course. I doubt the majority of our GMs or even the BOG have the knowledge and information necessary to deal with those nuances, or even the desire to do so. :p

Basically it's long and confusing. Simplified, when you place a player on IR, you are able to benefit from the difference between the salary of the injured player vs the replacement player, while a player on LTIR only allows you to exceed the upper limit when required. If you are a team close to the upper limit, you may benefit more from placing a player on IR as opposed to LTIR and "bank" cap savings. Since we use static totals rather than a more dynamic running total, there's no benefit to us in micromanaging our cap in this way.

The other part is the "expected to miss". Obviously you wouldn't put a player on LTIR when they are listed as day-to-day or the initial timetable for their return is less than 2 weeks, but 10 games could be two and a half weeks if it's a busy part of a team's schedule. Does someone really want to put in the effort of checking timetables against a team's schedule every time a player is injured? We have to be realistic with expectations. If someone puts a player on LTIR for something like a cold, that should be addressed, but there's no need to step in unless somebody is abusing LTIR.
