    This is likely going to be really unpopular, but drop an entire round of CHL playoffs, makes the regular season way more meaningful. I know a lot of people enjoy the excitement of that bottom team suddenly taking out top teams, but from what I have seen a lot of them kinda pad their rosters going in to it, even though during the season they showed over all they were not a great team. I just feel like when in some divisions the only way you aren't making the playoffs is if you finish last. Also this could greatly expand the WJC, which I know is more of a for fun thing, but seems like a great way to find new talent as well as have some extra competitive fun.

    The current CHL playoffs, including which teams make it, is there to closely resemble the real CHL; this is why the entirety of it all has been put into place with the exception of adding the ECHL. The ECHL being added to allow for more players to roster and fill the gap left by not having a "host" team for the memorial cup.

    well yeah, I know why it is the way it is, my personal opinion is just that sometimes deviation from exact can be an improvement. Like I said probably not going to be a very popular opinion.

    I want there to be more time slots available. At the moment, I can only play Sunday games.

    Got an idea about the roster drops during the off season.

    Would like to see all those players be placed on unconditional waivers first.
    This would give every team a chance to pick that player up at the current contract instead of waiting for bidding.

    I see the same players given a 2 season contract and dropped after playing just 1. Why bother with multi contracts if teams can drop players without penalties.

    Restricted players.

    The idea of RV's is a good one, but I don't think its exactly working as intended. Nearly every RV that has been assigned to my team gives poor availability and "Cant play when the call is out" (or my personal favorite, a stellar forward signing up as goalie to avoid a chl roster all together) but seem to have no trouble playing NHL games with alarming regularity anywhere they want and being traded around like an old VHS porn movie. They may not be able to be called up, but they still basically get their way.

    Or You have NHL caliber RV players being called up to CHL rosters and just absolutely dominate. Which I suppose is not the worst thing, but lets be honest... I wouldn't call it a competitive balance.

    My suggestion is to restrict RV's all together from ever seeing a roster at any level. Restricted means restricted, they still get to play but only as ECU period.

    I do understand that some RV's do not fall into the Elite category, but its a simple don't sign up late solution.

    Hello

    I think RA V's should be call up eligible and should start in the AHL. If the ECHL is ever separated from the CHL, then they start in the ECHL and cannot make a CHL roster. If you're an RA V you've been around LG long enough that you don't need to be in the lower tiers, especially because it's used for development.


    A lot of teams use "lgwarmup" with great success to find pin games before league games. If LG incorporated official pin searches like lgwarmupnhl, lgwarmupahl, lgwarmupchl, etc, it would help teams find pin games. I was also thinking teams could sign up to be randomly matched for pin games with a code that start at 8 pm. If you aren't searching by 8:10 your team is giving a "warning" for not being able to make the pin game and wasting other teams' time. I don't think there should be any discipline to management, maybe a one-week penalty that would not allow them to sign up for pin games (officially) if 2 pin games are missed in a week. I don't know how this would be incorporated because I am stupid.


    Make the first round of CHL playoffs best of five, or try to figure out a way that the Memorial Cup Semis and Finals are both best of 7. I think the teams have made it that far and they deserve to have a full-scale series for the league championship. Even if we don't make the first round best of 5 at least make both the Semis and Finals for Memorial Cup best of 7. World Juniors' final rounds are being played this week, so the Mem Cup finals could be running simultaneously.


    One thing I was thinking of (that is down this list because it's rather bizarre) is a way to push longtime management (at the CHL level) who should be at higher levels into the ECHL (when it's running), AHL and NHL. I was thinking teams that finish two seasons in a row with 85% winning percentage in the CHL (regular season) get automatically moved up to A at the bare minimum. 85% over two seasons is a fare amount of wins and may not be achieved regularly.

    But if a team can do that 2 seasons in a row, I think they are good enough to reach the higher levels. I think this because the CHL is about development and if the same teams are always the best in the league, it's hard for new management to be competitive and have a legitimate shot. I was thinking 85% (winning percentage) after 2 seasons, 75% after 4 seasons and 65% over 6 seasons (if they manage that long). It keeps a revolving door of ownership (which could be a good and bad thing) while also giving new owners a chance to be competitive.

    Another quick idea to add on to the RV debate. Possibly even increase their contract from their highest contract given. For example. Fnorespect has a contact of 3.5 and he signs up late. That should be noted and then if he were to sign up late again for consecutive seasons he would gain 500k salary on his contract and this could continue to go up in steeper intervals until a player reaches the max contract they can have while still being rostered (somewhere around 16 M or 17 M in the chl) Obviously there are good reasons for signing up late but as an owner I know a lot of people who want to dodge the higher leagues and stay in the chl and a rule like this could deter that from happening

    To be honest, I don't mind the RV system but nothing is perfect. Perhaps we could make it impossible for players who qualify for this status to sign up after the first few weeks of the season? If the system is still being manipulated then maybe the league's reaction needs to be stronger as well.

    Another idea might be to set a standard amount of prospect level players per team in the CHL. My suggestion would be to have a minimum amount of 4-5 per team to encourage player development in the league. It would also make less room for loading up on DP, A, and V grade players on chl rosters. It'd bring more talented players back up to struggling AHL rosters with less room to accomodate them in the CHL.

    Just a thought but I think prospect players who get drafted by nhl clubs should still have chl rights to team they played for just like in real world where good teams know how to scout players shouldn’t be punished and lose their players rights to a team that doesn’t scout properly, I mean it’s a way to reward teams for scouting prospects in chl league I think since we are kinda trying to follow how the real chl works .

    My suggestion is for owner to get more time (2weeks to decide) which players they want to issue two season contracts to. Having three days to get to know someone is not enough time for me to issue 2 season and with players being able to request trade on a two season deal I will most likely never give 2 season contracts as it gives them leverage, so basically it would be nice to have an idea if so and so players seem like they’re toxic making them a two season is bad idea

    Unpopular one but players shouldn't be allowed to play as women. Or there should be set of rules for those who do, like not provoking other players , especially goalies by shooting the puck intentionally after offside for instance. We forget that real person is on the other side and actions like that can disturb goalie or a player and make him more prone to mistakes.

    I am aware that league doesn't support fighting in the game but because it can still happen and bring momentum change, players usually don't do those dirty things unless they have female characters and then they keep doing it on purpose without any consequences.

    It looks like a small and meaningless issue on the surface but we can't ignore psychological factor it can have on players.

    So I would like to propose no female characters in LG games, or female characters should receive 1 game ban if they intentionally shoot the puck on goalie or challenging other players to fight although they know fight can't happen while being female character.

    Late signups should be ineligable to be traded or rostered. If you Sign up late you're are a TC of the team you were randomly asssigned to all season. @LG McDonald

    Be harsher on the Cancers of your league instead of protecting them with a broken AC system. Players or continually harassed by children. Boot them. There is another sign up waiting every time u rid us of a Plughunter. It’s one thing when it is friendly banter but when causing owners to not give people a look because you’re unjustly talking shit is getting out of hand. Agree with the Senior league also. Rid us if the child punks that sit at home all day talking shit. Let them play with eachother.

    Legit suggestion; is it possible to rename or create a trophy under the name "AffordableDreams Memorial Award"?

    In my opinion but CHL shouldn't be able to issue 2 seasons contract, they should just have an increased set amount of resigns and only used after the NHL draft is completed.

    With the further expansion coming, there will be a lower quality of players in the C. That being said, over the past few seasons, I've noticed that some teams can get screwed over really hard when players get called up. I believe that there should be a system in place where you can put a tag on a player to make them ineligible for call ups. I think this would have to be a mutual agreement, and that the players would still be eligible to play their TC games at a higher level if the opportunity presents itself. My thinking is that it would be 3-5 tags available per team, excluding management. I'm not sure this is feasible, but I think it would improve the competitiveness and fairness of the C.

    Prospects already can’t be called up, so if an owner does bidding right, he will already have this 3-5 + players that can’t get called up. If an owner decided to take the risk and bid on a lot of veterans and amateurs that is their fault for screwing over their own team. Forcing V and A players to stay in the C doesn’t seem like the move
