I've updated the instructions for submitting your signed roster to reflect the new dates for the new season. Please note that the deadline is the Friday night this year and not the Saturday. I need the extra day to process things. The deadline is 11:59 PM Toronto Time on Friday Sept 20th. http://forum.alternativehockeyleague.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=119

Unlike other predictions, these are meant to insult and offend both finalists.   #1 Eddie Shack Conference vs #1 Tiger Williams Conference   Steelheads (56-25-1) +/- 167 vs Big M (52-25-5) +/-

AHL GM's European Summit 2015 was a blast! Whalers really embraced the culture....     As per tradition of trades whenever owners cross paths... Whalers and Swackers have agreed to swap .25 both

let the floodgates open, all the players from the draft are on the rosters now along with Toews players. Feel free to manage your team and post your lineups. If I have made any mistakes please let me know.

A reminder that the maximum number of skaters on your active roster is 23 and any players who are on your reserve list on Thursday can be moved back to active as soon as you want this time. There is no need to keep them there for 7 days.
Another reminder is that we can use farm players in games in October and then send those players  back to the farm. You have to have room on your active roster to do so though. For example I have 28 skaters so if I want to use any farm players I'll have to drop somebody or make a trade.

AHL Predictions
These predictions are in no way meant to offend anyone (well maybe Serge) but just my often mistaken opinion.

EAST
Both Underdogs and Canadian Gothic will regress slightly but should still finish 1st/2nd. With the big free agent signings, Mustangs will be much improved, however 3rd place in division seems to be in the cards. Cheap Thieves gambled heavy on solid rookies, however a bunch will start the season in the minor's and might not make it up to NHL early enough to help. Look for a late season Thieves surge. Steelheads has started amassing a strong Farm again and will probably wait approx 2-3 years and then sweep Big M's in the finals again but wont contend this year.
1-Underdogs
2-Gothic
3-Mustangs (conference fan choice)
4-Cheap Thieves
5-Steelheads

WEST
With the exception of Shootloose, all teams in this division use the strong "forwards" weak "defenceman" approach. Easily the toughest division to predict order as any of the teams could finish 1-5. I think I will give the edge to team that owns one of the best players in history of NHL (Gretzky), Puck Warfare is well loved due to chocolate provider, however Tavaras and Barkov might have rough years which will hurt.

1-Magic D
2-Red Ravens
3-Winning Combo
4-Shootloose
5-Puck Warfare

Conference Playoffs - Underdogs, Gothic
Fighting for playoffs- Mustangs plus entire WEST
Reject cup bound- Thieves and Steelheads

North
For the 4th out of the last 5 years, this division should once again produce the top division in the league.
Shortstackers and Big M's have both maintained solid teams, however Greaseballs had a huge free agent draft plus farm help to become a big time contender. Whalers and Ingman both look to have a slightly stronger teams then last year, but will regress due to the stiff conference competition
1-Greasballs
2-Shortstackers
3-Big M's
4-Whalers
5-Ingman

South
The 4 years that the division title floated between Swackers and Pkdealers ends this year as Broadway will easily be the most improved and should capture the division. Both Swacker and Pkdealers will regress and be joined by an improved Scarborough Shooters (new assistant GM most probable reason) in fighting for 2nd-4th. Screaming Eagles has amassed a very deep farm and will probably pull a Broadway in 2 years to be an instant contender.
1-Broadway
2-Scarborough Shooters . 
3-Swackers (conference fan choice)
4-Pkdealers
5-Eagles

Conference 
Playoffs -Big M's, Stackers, Greaseballs, Broadway
Fighting for playoffs- Ingman, Whalers, Pkdealers, Swackers, Shooters
Reject cup bound- Eagles.

Good luck to all AHL teams. This looks to be a very fun season with all the new side stuff happening.

Here are the Free Agent Bidding Rules

1. Bidding closes at 6:00 pm Toronto time every Sunday

2. Bids will be made public after 6:30 PM. Nobody has access to the bids until they are made public to everybody. There is no way that I can view bids made by other teams in the admin area so I have no advantage. There is a button in the admin area for me to puch to publish the results for all to see.

3. Each team starts with 10,000 bidding units or credits. Only bids in full amounts are allowed. No cute bids like Pi 3.14159265359 are allowed.

4. Zero bids are allowed however since teams need to be able to add players to their roster even if they have used all their bidding credits.

5. In the event that two teams have bid the same amount the team with the highest tie breaking priority will win that player. Until the end of November that priority is based on last year's results so the Cheap Thieves are 1st and Big M's 20th. This won't change even if the priority it used. Starting in December we will use this year's standings as the basis for the tie breaking priority and it will change week to week with the standings. Worst record top priority and best record the lowest priority.

6. Bidding Credits are not tradeable or transferable to another team.

7. No collusion is allowed in the bidding process. You are not allowed to share your bid amounts with any other team. Table talk however is allowed. If you don't know what table talk is ask a poker player.

8. The maximum bid will be all of your credits.

9. When you bid you can bid the maximum number of units on more than one player and there will be a priority of who you want first.

example: I have 500 units available and bid 400 units on each of two different players. I get my highest priority player and that costs me 400 units. That means I only have 100 units available and that becomes my bid on the 2nd player. If I don't get my top player my bid on the 2nd player stays at 400 units.

10. There is a chat box in your bid area that you can put instructions in. For example you may bid on 5 players but only want a maximum of 2 of them. You have to put those instructions in the chat box.

11. Remember that for a player to be available to be picked up through the Fab process they must have both played an NHL regular season game before the Sunday and also be on a NHL team's active roster on Sunday. If a player plays their 1st NHL game on Sunday they can't be picked up on that Sunday. They can't be in the minors or on the injured list.

12. If you are making a zero bid please make it 0.0 which shows that you actually meant to bid that amount and it wasn't a misclick.

13. You will be able to edit or cancel your bids up until 6pm on Sunday
