The MGMT had a vote on if AGM should or should not return. The votes were 24 - YES 13 - NO However, the consensus seemed to be most people didnt really care either way. Here is the discussion we had as well as the PROs/CONs and results from this season. 1.) A team may take on a contracted AGM before bidding for 5M or trade for a contracted player and make him 5M (even if his contract is more) 2.) A team may choose not to take a 5M contracted AGM player and win a player in bidding or trade for a player under contract and give him AGM status Pros: - 3rd Player who you know and trust - Helps eliminate some of the cancer from bidding - Possibly attracts higher end management? Cons: - Bidding, leaves it completely watered down - Greater disparity from Top teams to the bottom feeders - Newer management may struggle to obtain upper echelon AGM XBOX 5M AGMs ANA - N/A (eliminated) ARZ - Easy Mac (QUIT) (eliminated) 3M-4M BOS - MattTheCoolCatt (eliminated) 4M-6M BUF - Fostxr (playoffs) 6M-8M CGY - N/A (playoffs) CAR - N/A (eliminated) CHI - Sejje (playoffs) 4M-5M COL - BossOfBosses (Eliminated) 3M-4M CBJ - N/A (Eliminated) DAL - Briere (eliminated) 7M-8M DET - N/A (Playoffs) EDM - FlashDavin (playoffs) 6M-7M FLA - Backlund (playoffs) 3.5M-5M LA - GB (Playoffs) 7M-8M MIN - N/A (Eliminated) MON - Tcx (Eliminated) 4M-5M NSH - FreekOnTheStix (playoffs) 6M-7M NJD - Suter (playoffs) 6M-8M NYI - GURN (Banned) (Eliminated) 2M-4M NYR - Panada (Playoffs) 5M-7M OTT - Grim (Playoffs) 5M-6M PHI - Canucks (Eliminated) 2.5M-4M PITT - SamDelisle9 (Playoffs) 5M-7M SJS - Brayden (Playoffs) 4M-5M STL - Ryan (Playoffs) 5M-6M TBL - Tom 0 (Playoffs) 4M-5M TOR - Mr Hit Dat (Eliminated) 4M-6M VAN - N/A (Eliminated) WSH - Copes (Eliminated) 2M-3.5M WPG - MVP (Playoffs) 7M-8M 5M AGM STATS 23 TEAMS AGM 2 AGMs quit/banned 7 playoff teams 5 AGMs - real contract value 5 Overpaid AGMs (0 made playoffs) 9 Accurately Priced AGMs (7 made playoffs) 9 Bargain AGMs (8 made playoffs) NO AGM 7 TEAMs 2 playoff teams 11 teams with 100+ points (2 no AGM) 3 teams below 50 points (1 no AGM) HOW DID AGM EFFECT BIDDING (Would have been much better installed after a roster reset) BAD CONTRACTS IN BIDDING FWDS Brad - 10M (missed games) (ok season on top team) Fox - 9.25M (Traded) Hellcat - 8.5M (poor season) LAKE - 8M (QUIT) Nukebomb 8M (QUIT) Stewkos - 7.75M (Traded) Raynor - 7.75M (Traded) (missed games) Goblin - 7.75M (Traded) good season Mole - 7.5M (QUIT) TeeLogan - 7.5M (Traded) Miah - 7M (QUIT) Trevalynn - 7M (Traded) Naslund - 6.25M (QUIT) EliteHydroponix - 6M *Good season Ezreal - 5.75M (Traded) *good season Duky - 5.25M *good season MFrich - 5.5M (Traded) DannyRetartabul - 5M (Traded) StamToast - 4.75M (Traded) JayChin - 5.75M (QUIT) Geno - 4.25M (QUIT) DEF HandzAGod - 6.25M (Traded) FROBE - 4M *bad season on good team G Money - 2.75M (Traded) What they went for VS What they SHOULD go for FWDS Brad - 10M7-9M Fox - 9.25M6-7M Hellcat - 8.5M3-4M (always goes for around 6 though bc hes always late in bidding just like YoungNThePimp) LAKE - 8M4-5M Nukebomb 8M 4-5M Stewkos - 7.75M4-5M Raynor - 7.75M5-7M Goblin - 7.75M5-6M Mole - 7.5M3-5M TeeLogan - 7.5M3-5M Miah - 7M 3-4M Trevalynn - 7M4-5M Naslund - 6.25M2-3M EliteHydroponix - 6M3-4M Ezreal - 5.75M 3-4M Duky - 5.25M 2-3M MFrich - 5.5M2-3M DannyRetartabul - 5M2-3M StamToast - 4.75M1-3M JayChin - 5.752-3M Geno - 4.25M1-2M DEF HandzAGod - 6.25M3-5M FROBE - 4M 1-2M G TheOneAndOnly - 3.5M2-3M Money - 2.75M1-2M Bakes - 2.75M1.5-2.5M (as a backup G 500K-750K) CONTRACTS BY TEAM ANA - Hellcat - 8.5M pretty high, however he was the best FWD left which always seems to happen and he actually has been with them all season and had a decent season (however, contract was prob too high for anyone to trade for him) ANA did this with Jewbakak and Williams last season. Jmoney 2.75M - highest paid G in bidding after NSHs guys, good G, too much on a G though needed to use the cap elsewhere, made it hard to move him and get good value back with that contract for a G ARZ - TLogan - hadn't played NHL since 15, they overpaid pretty bad based on him never playing NextGen and still being in college on college internet and not living for it anymore BOS - N/A BUF - Brad - TOR and BUF both bidding on him, both very good teams with experienced mangers, knew the risk of brad and his past history of him quitting and no showing all the time, however when he shows, one of the better players and probably the best player in bidding, still 10M was a big risk CGY - Goblin - 7.75M at FWD not a D, hes a good FWD and a nice guy, spent a little too much on him though CAR - HandzAGod - 6.25M sort of a known problem player when on teams he doesnt like or know people. Solid Dman but usually only good and doesnt cause trouble when on his boy A1Freaks team, overpaid as well CHI - N/A COL - LAKE 8M - guy hasnt been good in a long time and even back then he was just ok. Wasnt very good last season he played for BOS either, hasnt played much on Newton, doesnt club a lot CBJ - Naslund - 6.25M for a guy who's played 3rd line or been a complementary fill in guy on lines was terrible. MIAH aka Obnoxious - guy quits literally all the time, spent a shit ton on him another fail DAL - N/A DET - N/A EDM - N/A FLA - Geno - 4.5M for a Man playing FWD, hes solid, overpaid though and quit when traded to a bad team LA - JayChin - 4.25M another guy who quits a lot, traded him with no comp, he quit MIN - N/A MON - N/A NSH - both Goalies but they had the cap and it was one of the only positions they needed in bidding the team has been near the top all season, Bold strategy, seemed to pay off NJD - N/A NYI - Raynor 7.75M - Great player, known to no show, hard to get in contact with, new owner = bad recipe. DannyRetartabul - 5M about 2M overpaid, good player good guy with new owner, not bad. Ezreal - 5.75M overpaid again, solid player, known to bitch in the CB doesnt always help try to make his teams he goes to better NYR - Spent too much money on D and not FWDs, hurt them, luckily made good trades OTT - N/A PHI - Mfrich 5.5M not that good anymore, doesnt seem to care about the game, StamToast 4.75M Goalie playing FWD, has never had a good season at FWD, overpaid him SJS - Mole 7.75M overpaid and quit/ NukeBomb 8M usually a good guy GM for CBJ last season, always a solid player, quit Jones 2M 1st round G drafted, very good player - Quit STL -EliteHydroPonix - 6M FWD and Dman always been a solid player never really a 1st liner, he is overpaid, Duky - 5.75M Good player, never really more than a 3rd or 2nd on LG, good in other leagues but unreliable, doesnt sign up for games, gets into it with teammates, they are successful and his line and team as done well TBL - N/A TOR - FROBE 4M - use to be a very good FWD playing D, slightly overpaid, not having a good season, plays on both consoles, doesnt club much, mainly an NBA guy know VAN - Fox 9.25M - very overpaid, good dude, not nearly as good as he was on OldGen Stew 7.75M overpaid, good guy doesnt seem to enjoy the game much WSH - Trevalynn - 7M overpaid very good 2nd liner who fills in well on 1st lines, salary was inflated WPG - N/A ** The MGMT forums on xbox are currently having a discussion on if we should use it again next season. The vast majority seems to not care either way, it was cool to have but not really too big of a deal.
