I'm pleased to announce Challenge #37! In this challenge we're going to do something a bit different than we normally do with the challenges and we're also going to simplify the rules for all of the folks that don't normally participate in the challenges. For this challenge we're going to provide everyone with a saved game that I have simmed through to April 15th 2015. When you load this game, you'll retire the temporary GM I made (named TBL Challenge) and add your GM, taking over the Vancouver Canucks. At that point, you'll want to immediately send your scouts out to scout the NHL Draft. You should have just enough time to scout for the draft. You'll also want to scout the NHL and maybe the AHL and ECHL too because we're going to blow up the Canucks!
This is how it will work...
Once the Stanley Cup Finals are done (the game starts early in the playoffs and the Canucks are on the outside looking in) and trading has opened up again, you're going to trade away every player on your team that is 29 year old or older! You're going to trade them for draft picks and young players. Anyone not traded before entering the draft has to be released.
All players aged 29 or older must be traded or released before entering the draft. Player's age is as of the start of the season. i.e. Alexander Edler is 28 when you load the save. He will be 29 before the start of the 2015-2016 season. He counts as being 29.
You must trade these players for draft picks or young players under contract (or a combination of the two).
Incoming players must be aged 24 or younger!
You may not trade for unsigned players/prospects!
You may not send draft picks out in a trade. They can only come in.
You can package multiple 29 or older players in a deal.
You must trade the Sedin twins together in a deal.
You may not trade for draft picks for future drafts, only the 2015 draft.
You may not re-sign players aged 29 and over so that they'll get trade interest. In this challenge, that's Brad Richardson. He'll have to be allowed to go for nothing.
You may re-sign any other players with expiring contracts.
You may sign any of your unsigned prospects but you may not trade them.
Once July 1st comes around you're allowed to hire and fire non-playing staff freely. Put the staff that you want in place. Find staff that work well with youngsters so that you'll be able to develop all of these young players you have. Find good scouts for the coming years. Going in to season 1 (the 2015-2016) season, you can sign any of your prospects that you like but you are not allowed to sign any UFAs. You're also not allowed to make waiver claims. You won't be able to make any more moves in this first season. Play it out and develop your young players.
Season 2 and on
Each season on June 15th the veteran age will drop. You'll have the option of trading away these veteran players or keeping them. The same restrictions apply here that applied the when you first took over the team but the age will drop
2015-2016: Players aged 28 or older may be traded
2016-2017: Players aged 27 or older may be traded
2017-2018: Players aged 26 or older may be traded
2018-2019: Players aged 25 or older may be traded
Also, each season you may trade one players under the veteran age. You may not package this player with a veteran. They must be traded on their own.
In this challenge you are not allowed to:
Trade away your draft picks.
Claim players from waivers.
