As of now, you can begin negociations with all of your players whose contracts are running out, including UFAs, though most of them will want to test the market, and talk trade with other teams. Trades between two teams ran by the same GM will not be permitted, no matter the fairness of the deal.


To send in offers, please follow this form in order to facilitate my comprehension. For simplicity's sake, we will not bother with signing bonuses and just include them in the total salary (which is all years combined, not an average per year)

Player Name :
Total Salary :
Length of Contract :
Discussion :

The discussion part is where you can, if you wish, try to convince your player to sign for that amount, or sell your team to the player when Free Agency will begin. Not necessary, especially for lower-tier players, but recommended for big name free agents. If you wish to offer the player a no-trade clause, this is also the place to do it.



As for trades, the following form will be preferred.

Team X receives : Player A

Team Y receives : Pick (year and overall number of the pick)



Completed Trades

To NYI : Tyler Cuma
To MIN : Calvin De Haan

To BUF : Ales Hemsky, Jeff Drouin-Deslauriers, Riley Nash
To EDM : Tim Connolly, Jhonas Enroth, 83rd Overall Pick

To BUF : Brad Richards, Trevor Daley
To DAL : Derek Roy, Drew Stafford, Chris Butler

Free Agency

The following list shows every free agent, sorted by team, and will be updated regularly as the signings are completed. Next to each team's name is their projected cap number for the 2010-11 season. Remember that only the 23 highest salaried players count towards the cap. Both nhlnumbers (www.nhlnumers.com) and capgeek (www.capgeek.com) are quite accurate and can inform you on the individual cap hit of your players. The former tends to show a little more information but can also be a little more confusing.

Latendresse, Staal get big raises

http://i.tsn.com/i/photos/20100115/133897.jpghttp://www.nypost.com/rw/nypost/2010/04/05/sports/photos_stories/cropped/marc_staal--300x300.jpg

Forward Guillaume Latendresse and defenceman Marc Staal both had a breakout season last year. Yesterday, both of them were rewarded with a new contract. Latendresse, who had struggled early last season until an unexpected trade sent him packing from Montreal to Minnesota, elevated his game to a whole new level from the first moment he stepped on the ice of the Xcel Energy Center. The left winger scored 25 goals in the remaining 55 games, earning the praise of fans, medias and coaches alike. On the other hand, Marc Staal, of the New York Rangers, is recognized more for preventing goals. His stellar defensive play throughout the year helped his team rank in the top-tier for least goals allowed with a very respectable 218 goals. Staal finished the season second on his team with a +11 rating, and also showed some offensive poise, notching a career high 27 points. Both players signed a contract worth 3 millions per year, the former for three years, the latter for four.
