Kept him in the line-up for the first season. But for the second, he was a replacement for injuries. Now, I wanna trade him...anywhere honestly...for anything. If I can't get rid of him by the first game of the third season, I'll waiver him to send him down to the AHL. If I lose him, meh, ain't care. But yeah, he taught me one good darn lesson : Check the darn contracts before trading for someone
EDIT rather than make a new post :
I ended up sending Nielsen to Laval. 5 millions in the AHL. Great management here!!
Not much happened in the summer. Signer Jordan Eberle (He's my favorite player) and currently trying to sign Tyler Seguin. I think I made over 20 offers to him during the summer. Kinda surprised he hasn't simply banned me from contacting him
Otherwise, I got rid of Schlemko and Alzner for prospects and draft picks.
Ryan Suzuki (1st round, 17th total - Center)
Jack Hale (3rd round, 79th total - RW)
Linus Nassen (4th round, 110th total - Forward)
Milos Koblisek (6th round, 162nd total - Center - Traded his rights to NJ)
Andrei Pavlenko (7th round, 203rd total - RW)
Time to see where this 3rd season will lead me
Are you the only team who is in play with Seguin? I got him for 7.5M a year with a 7 year contract in early September 2019 (a two months long negotiation). He was asking for 10M a year initially but I was able to bargain it down with a consistent and constant effort. Many big name free agents were left unsigned because they are asking more than what the AI teams can afford... I also grabbed Blake Wheeler at 5M a year on a one year deal as well. AI teams will come into play in later September/early October and make offers to these free agents. Just be mindful about that.
Tampa Bay was also in the race for Seguin. We both offered 1 year contract. Mine was at 6.2 and TB was at 5.9...and he went with them
There aren't any interesting forwards available in the FA, so I'm gonna stick to what I got now
