Here is the idea. 
Keeper league with contracts. You draft 23 players in the initial draft to staff your team.  Before season one starts you will sign your players to contracts that will start to run when the season starts. When their contract ends, they will retire for three seasons and then be eligible for the draft again except that the seasons used cannot be used again. You will have options to protect some of your retiring players for use when they return from their hiatus. There will be a minor league draft to help staff your team during the off season to help you make the shrinking salary cap. 


I'd like to get 24 separate owners.

Trades Yes 8 to Veto
No Clones
No Waiver Wire
No P.I.
Max 3 Players out
Minor leaguers below average
No Ties - Shootout

Give me some feedback or ideas to make it better. Thanks for reading.

Salary Cap
Seasons 1, 2 & 3   = 175 million 
Seasons  4, 5 & 6  = 170 million 
Seasons  7, 8 & 9 =  165 million 
Seasons  10, 11 & 12  = 160 million 
Seasons  13, 14 & 15  = 155 million 
Seasons 16 and on  = 150 million

Contracts
3 year regressive or progressive 
4 year regressive or progressive 
5 year regressive or progressive 
6 year regressive or progressive 
7 year regressive or progressive 

Number of contracts allowed (total of 27)
7 - 3 year 
7 - 4 year 
6 - 5 year 
4 - 6 year 
3 - 7 year 
Any can be progressive or regressive 

Before Season One you will post the player, year starting, contract size and regressive or progressive. 

example : Wayne Gretzky  79/80 7P  (79/80 starts his 7 years progressive contract) 

If you move a player from the team to the minor league last after a season ends (because of his performance or to make the salary cap) his contract does not stop. You will lose that season and move to the next if you bring him back up.

Retirement
Players retire when their contact ends and will not be eligible to return for three seasons. Their seasons played will no longer be available. At the end of each season after season three you will have two options to keep a retiring player for your franchise when he returns in three seasons. The max you can carry on your Player Option list will be 6. After their retirement you can sign them to a new contract either regressive or progressive as long as you do not used previously played seasons. So plan ahead.

Minor Leaguers
After season one and two there will be a two round minor league draft for players that will sit on the side until you decide to use them. They can only be used at the start of a new season.Once they move up to the big leagues at the beginning of a new season their clock starts on their contract. Minor Leaguers can only have two year or three year contracts and the max you can carry is 4. For every season starting after season three there will be a minor league draft for teams who have open spots on their minor league roster to fill or would like to drop an unused minor leaguer back into the draft and pick a new one. That draft will be after that seasons entry draft.

Initial Draft

Snake style and random order

I have two options on holding the draft:

Option A
1 round everyday for 23 days as we usually do

Option B
1/2 a round each day so there is more time to plan your team out
So you would pick every other day on a set schedule

Example
7 - 8:30
8:30 - 10
10 - 11:30
11:30 - 1
1 - 2:30
2:30 - 4
4 - 5:30
5:30 - 7
7 - 8:30
8:30 - 10
10 - 11:30
11:30 - 1
