I think we use the worst waiver process available as an option. (Edit: maybe first come first served is worse.)

I don't think the worst-to-first method is a true indicator of a teams strength. Ex/ Grreaseballs was the second worse team in the standings last year and gets second priority. This process doesn't account for the players a team like Greaseballs can activate/acquire from the farm/auction. Greaseballs was not the second worst team in the league 6:00 tonight.

Basing the priority list on the standings at the waiver claim deadline each week would be a little better, but I think we should get rid of the worst-to-first idea altogether.

Someone mentioned this before... Mike, I believe... we should use a Blind Bid waiver process (seems appropriate given the poker influence in the pool).

Blind Bid (BBID) A waiver claim placed on a free agent for a certain dollar amount using the teams allowed blind bid budget. These bids cannot be seen by other teams. The highest bidder will win the player.

We'd just have to decide what the starting budget would be and some other little details.

It doesn't matter all that much, but the current system is just fine and it rewards the shittiest teams from the PREVIOUS year for first priority. That person can only get one good one likely as they have to wait on their second one to be processed after all other claims are made.

I know it rewards the shittiest teams from the PREVIOUS season... that's one of the problems with it.

Puck Warfare was 8th and picked up two good young D prospects. Puck Warfare is not a shitty team.

Changing it to a Blind Bid process would potentially add more fun to the league also. People like to bid on players. I think this process has the potential to get more owners interested. It also opens the door for more gamesmanship.

What exactly do you think the NHL and our junior draft does? It rewards the shittiest team from the previous season. This is just an additional way to do that.



I don't hate BBID, but we could do that and still help the weaker teams slightly in that process. For example, the weaker teams start with more BBID.


Example:
AHL Champion 1000
#2 Team in Standings 1010
#3 1020
#4 1030
etc...
Worst team starts with 1200

My point is the shittiest teams in February are not necessarily the shittiest teams in October.

and every team in the pool had the option to either get a player they liked more than Puck Warfare's 2nd choice or get that player.

You know why I like this system. It's simple and fair.

And guess what, I now have a higher priority than all those crappy teams from last year who picked up players this week.

Update. The new site is really close. I ran the scores for game one in it and things are looking good. Still a few things to get done before you guys see it but it won't be long.


Don't forget to post your lineups in the AHL forum and also if you picked up any players you have to make sure you have room for them on your roster by moving players to reserve or dropping farm players down or dropping players completely.

Ran into a hiccup that will need to be fixed before you guys can start using the website so I've put a thread in the AHL forum for posting Thursday's lineup. Fingers crossed that it's the last game that we have to do it for
