Waiver Wire XXVII-Zero1940 "Old Fogey" Tribute League
As you may or may not know, zero1940 (Paul), is stepping away from the hockey sim. He is a great competitor and an overall nice guy and we hate to see him leave. Hopefully, one day he will return to us refreshed and ready to kick our collective butts again!
Anyway, to honor him, he has chosen the rules for waiver wire XXVII. They are:
All teams must draft 1919-20 Frank Brophy and 1942-43 Jimmy Franks. These are the only goalies you are permitted to use all season. You may not waive or pick up another goalie off the ww.
All players initially drafted must cost $165,000 and are from the 1949-1950 season and prior. You may not claim or play any player that played more recently than the 1949-1950 season.
All players claimed must also adhere to the above rule...1949-50 season and prior.
One claim per calendar day (remember, forwards and defensemen only from the 1949-50 season and back)
Max injuries 5, trades ok, 6 to veto
As of this sitemail, it is unknown what the team salary cap will be. It will be Paul's age (which I am thinking, if he is honest, will be 127), but I am waiting for a response to determine that part of the league. It does not effect the initial draft though.
Let's all wish Paul a "bon-voyage" to the hockey sim from his (mostly dysfunctional) hockey family.
Hope to see you all there!
PS-All arenas are to be from the 1950 season and prior, and let's honor Paul with some great team names referencing Paul (i.e. Older Than Dirt, Fossils, Don't need my teeth...it's pudding night at the home!) etc!!!
Cap is 73 million
