Waiver Wire XXIV-Free team if you stink!! FULL! Topic


  1. Begin by drafting your team consisting of players costing over $3 million (with the exception of 1 wild card player)
  2. You may draft 1 wild card player, any position, costing less than $2 million
  3. Build your championship team by claiming 1 player per calendar day off of the waiver wire costing less than $2 million once the league schedule has been generated. (If you missed making a claim one day, you may not make 2 claims the next).
  4. ALL players with salaries over $3 million MUST BE RELEASED by the transaction deadline. You can not put them in the minors, nor can you leave them on your final roster. They take up a roster spot that must be taken by a player you claimed with a salary under $2 million.
  5. No clones
  6. The last two calendar days prior to the transaction deadline are multiple claiming days. If you missed making your one claim per day before,or had some roster spots to fill, you may make as many (or as few) claims as you'd like during this 2 day time period. This allows everyone to have all of their  players costing over $3 million to be released by the deadline.
  7. $75 million cap
  8. Max. injuries at 6, trades allowed-6 to veto, relaxed rosters, NEVER playoff intensity, no minor leaguers this version.
This league is a ton of fun and involves some strategy and some luck. Do you claim the defenseman with an 80 d rating in the morning,  or do you wait patiently for that stud to appear at a later hour (who sometimes never does)?
If an owner accidentally claims more than one player on a calendar day, both players must be released and the owner may make another waiver wire claim on the next calendar day (all games played with illegal players, whether dressed or not, will be forefitted). If an owner has any players on his roster after the transaction deadline costing over $2 million, the violating owner will forefit all remaing games and will lose a spot in the playoffs if one was earned.

That's it gang. Pretty simple. No restrictions on defense ratings or salaries (other than the maximum-under $2 million). Hope to see you all there! NHL28687

Hiya Aspen. Great pics as always! 10 in so far, so I hope to see you there to make it 11!
And we got VERY lucky with Sandy, unlike our friends in New Jersey and New York and all over the east coast. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.

I have added a bonus for the last place team in the league. You will recieve a free team for finishing dead last in the league as an added incentive to join if you think you can't compete.
