Round One voting is now open for all eligible GMs (see the description above). Votes will be tallied on Friday, April 10th so make sure to get them in before next Thursday night.

If it is confusing, try to ignore the numbers and think of it as a sliding scale that you're placing your vote on; further from the center = more weight toward that team.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>flamesfan419</b></div><div>BOG

When can we start to sign undrafted and college guys?

My understanding is with TDL done, NHL clubs can start to sign these guys, so are we going to have to wait until out in game TDL passes, or can we do it now</div></div>

College players may only be signed if:
they have completed four seasons in college and no other team holds their rights;
they have been signed by professional team in real life and no other team holds their rights;
they have been drafted in the GM game draft and you own their rights.

Players in Europe may only be signed if:
they were born before September 15, 1997 and no other team holds their rights;
they have been signed by a professional team in real life and no other team holds their rights;
they have been drafted in the GM game draft and you own their rights.

Players in the CHL may only be signed if:
they have been draft eligible for at least two drafts and no other team holds their rights;
they have been signed by a professional team in real life and no other team holds their rights;
they have been drafted in the GM game draft and you own their rights.

Players in Junior A, USHL or High School may only be signed if:
they have been signed by a professional team in real life and no other team holds their rights;
b)they have been drafted in the GM game draft and you own their rights.

For the purpose of determining which team a player is playing for, use their team for the current season with the cutoff of the first game of the NHL season.
If the player is younger than 25 years of age as of September 15 during the year of their first NHL contract must sign an entry-level contract which have set limitations.
18-21 years of age: 3 years
22-23 years of age: 2 years
24 years of age: 1 year

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>PleaseBanMeForMyOwnGood</b></div><div>The problem with those articles is its hard to pin point why exactly players show well in advance stats. Is it a product of their team's system? Who they play with? What is their competition each night? I believe at the time of this article, Hamilton was still playing, and he was playing lesser competition on the 2nd pair.</div></div>

If it were a product of his team, wouldn't there be a teammate that shows better numbers? The competition is a valid question, but if a guy is clearly effective based on looking at these stats, I would think that they have earned the trust of their coach to play in defensive situations. It's an assumption, but it doesn't refute the stats. So anyway, there is data here on Quality of Competition <a href="https://hockeyviz.com/fixedImg/qoct/1920/CAR/pescebr94/wrap" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">https://hockeyviz.com/fixedImg/qoct/1920/CAR/pescebr94/wrap</a>; it's tricky to read but it shows that Pesce spends more time than the average player on the ice against a team's top 4 forwards (and that he's a top-3 d-man for his team in terms of TOI). You could contrast Pesce's deployment to someone like TVR who gets the easy deployment (<a href="https://hockeyviz.com/fixedImg/qoct/1920/CAR/vanritr91/wrap" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">https://hockeyviz.com/fixedImg/qoct/1920/CAR/vanritr91/wrap</a>); it shows he faces the 5-12 forwards of the opposition more than the average player would.
