    It might not be long before EA doesn't make a hockey game. What about multiple season contracts for CHL players?

    See Im still new to LG so I dont have much of an opinion on that since Im not fully informed of all the implications. I do know I would have liked to sign a 2 year deal with my WHL team Portland. Also not sure if your replying to me or not haha.

    Community Thoughts on #1? *copy this when you respond

    So is this grandfathered if I played season 6 and got my 15 games do I now have to stay in the chl for next season to get 48?

    I really like all of the proposed ideas, with the exception of maybe #4. I felt the TC roster last year was already very small and thin. I think if there were any fewer TC roster players it would result in more forfeits. I think that the TC games gave the TC players a chance to be active and show there teams that they could play there position. I think a better idea would be to expand further on the TC games as mentioned in post 5. Instead of just blue and red perhaps you have the divisions for each league. Eg QMJ Maritimes might play the WHL Central, with a bit of a schedule and players would play more with the same team mates and have a bit more at stake as well.

    We simply don’t have the numbers to do that yet.

    It would require pulling all the amateurs and veterans out of the CHL, making it a prospects leagues and then the ECHL would be used directly as the feeder for the AHL.

    Seems great from a CHL MGT stand point but we simply don’t have the volume of V and A players.

    Each season the overflow we have is a majority prospects hence why it
    that would come hand in hand with the 48 game rule. It would be a smaller system than what we see in the NHL but a bit to allow teams to dabble with contracts.
    How it worked when it was implemented on Xbox was everyone whom ended the season on a roster in the CHL and was a prospect was entered into the draft. Once the draft was completed the script was ran.

    Therefore any players whom did not reach the milestone of 48 games would retain prospect status and return to the CHL for S7
    Exactly WHY we need a positional lock lol

    Just to give you all an idea of my train of thought. Idea 1-2-3 I liked to implement as soon as S7. Idea 4 is more of a NHL 19 idea based on numbers and idea 5 is an on going project that I’d like to see grow more and more each season

    I disagree

    banana leagues have google doc stats and scheduling in a thread. LG has more bells and whistles than those sites and leagues ever have

    For how the league looks now based on numbers the ECHL fits into a place at the same tier as the CHL.

    But it could also live in a place below the AHL and being a veteran and Amateur league leaving the CHL to be Only a prospects league.

    For that to work we’d need 60 CHL teams, of at least 23 players(17 man roster TC per position) which would be a total of 1380 players. If we assume the O and GM can be any player status, we could drop that number by 120.

    I am a simulation nut. So ideally I’d like to move the ECHL over time

    This is my first season. I signed up halfway through. I have only played 13 reg season games (14 if you count the one lost in the hack), but will have played at least 4 playoff games by the time my team's season is over. I guess my point is this, playing in the CHL is brutal hockey, i.e. slower pace, less talent than I'm used to playing with, it's not fair that ill have to play 2 MORE seasons of this sh*t hockey before I can advance.

    If you’re good, you’d be drafted and it wouldn’t affect you anyways.

    Agreed. Maybe a condensed version of the ECHL. I’m all about the simulation as well. The ECHL is a grave yard of bad draft picks. Non-drafted CHL and NCAA players. And some cagey veterans Be a great place for AHL ECU.

    Also allow the draft pick that does not make his NHL Team back into CHL for a year.

    Have 2 season CHL contracts or 48 games. So only bids would be first time players like a bantam draft.

    Im happy with the new decision have a suggestion for the position lock if they can play 3 fwd position like an attack team then the 3 back position should be a defense team but im cool with it

    I think that the guys that were in last season should be father in lawed in since we were under the impression that we could move up this season so if you do implement this new rules you should make it for next seasons offseason so it's fair to everyone

    Even though I haven't played in the CHL in a few seasons, it's nice to see potential changes being implemented as they not only have an immediate impact on the CHL, but also impact the way the NHL and AHL manage their drafts, callups, and TCs. I do feel that it is risky to add both the position lock and league expansion at the same time though. Position lock should be instituted first in S7 to make sure you have enough defender signups with the current 60 team format. Adding the 48 game rule for S7 will also keep enough undrafted P status defenders down to help with those numbers. Once you establish your baseline defender pool amongst 60 teams, you can evaluate if you would have enough for expansion for a 4th league in S8 or S9. S8 may be difficult with low summer signups and could result in perfect storm of not enough supply for the demand, so maybe S9 would be best for the full expansion with the position lock.

    If you’re good enough to be called up then you will get drafted and it won’t matter. If not you wouldn’t get drafted and probably wouldn’t get called up anyway so yea. It worked fine on Xbox. It will work the same on PS4. It’s not like if you don’t get drafted and go to CHL bidding that there would be hundreds of spots available to be called up to anyway. Most guys re-sign up season after season and a spot needs to be earned. Scout in the offseason and you will be drafted if you are decent. Then it won’t be an issue. If yu can’t crack the top 120 prospects and get drafted then you, or whoever, should be in the CHL anyway.

    Hope this doesn’t come off dickish as that is not my intent.
