Hey all, AHL bidding is in full swing and of course there are posts about people being snubbed and what not. However, a common thing I have picked up on across both CHL and AHL is that some managers are far more knowledgeable than others (assume it applies to NHL too). I know getting people to signup as management is a challenge for LGHL and I wonder if some type of "cheat sheet" exists for people to use? If there is one, then no need to read further. If not, I would propose that perhaps one be sent out once bidding lists are finalized? Whether it's in excel format or something else, I think it would benefit management to have an easily searchable document to look for past gamertag names of a player or seasons of AHL experience, etc. there is a BIG difference between selecting a single player and seeing his past gamertags versus searching a gamertag and locating it amongst everyone in LG. Now some will argue that if you take management you should do your homework. It's a competitive league and no one should hold your hand. However, if AHL talent is dropping to the CHL and AHL managers are putting out Chl quality rosters in the AHL, it results in awful AHL teams and stacked CHL teams, neither of which is good for A competitive environment. It would be up to management to ultimately decide what needs to be in this data sheet, but the hope would be: 1) it limits learning curve for newer managers 2) encourages more people to take management or be open to it 3) ensures more level competition at each of the respective levels. BONUS: it reduces success rate of people who change tag before bidding to try and play with friends. Playing with friends is awesome but LG isn't club. I see lists come out with preseason rankings and most of the time they are pretty accurate. For a truly competitive league, it should be tougher to so easily predict who will and won't succeed. TLDR: read the 3 numbered points above. Giving management a way to analyze the enormous LG player pool could help achieve the 3 things above.
