    There has been alot of talk surround "sandbagging" in the lower tiers. A lot of players like to signup late and play in the CHL. For competitive balance, I am curious to see what the community's thoughts are on a few change suggestions I have.

    Keep in mind these changes would be for the future, not for this current season.
    1. Should RA Veteran Players be call-up to the AHL?
      • These players are assigned at the highest salary value EVER
      • These players CANNOT be resigned
    2. Should RA Veteran Players NOT be call up Eligible to the CHL?

    3. Both 1 and 2?

    4. Neither 1 and 2?
    Please vote and comment below!

    *If you vote just A or just B, I will take it as you want JUST that one change*

    Yea, this doesn't make much sense...

    The way it's worded currently, if we wanted BOTH A and B, that would be they could be called up to the AHL while never being allowed to be called up to the CHL.

    That's exactly it, they would be AHL eligible but not CHL eligible.

    They worded it basically saying should RA V's not be able to play full-time as a roster player in the C, but eligible to play full time in the A. A lot of RA V's sign-up late to sandbag in the C, so that's why they have it like that i am sure.

    Although brodie, maybe do something like have it be available to be brought to BOGS in regards to maybe it being a mediocre player.. Like some people who sign-up to get RA V status want to sandbag correct but some guys don't actually know if they can play but might be like CHL player at best and won't be good enough to be A level so this would make it so they have to stay on TC in CHL all season.

    I think if they are average and probably have no chance to be called up they should be able to have the opportunity at CHL Roster.

    Since the rule is now that you get your highest contract maybe it shouldn’t matter anymore. We want the best players in the NHL/AHL no matter when they sign up. Maybe you get a salary increase of say your max + 25%? It’ll go up every season you dodge bidding. We will see more players in bidding.

    Or RA bidding maybe.

    Why dont we skip all of this and have no late signups?

    You either sign up in time for AHL/NHL drafts/bids or you are TC'd.

    Honestly not sure why there is a signup past the AHL date to begin with

    as for the thread itself...

    Personally I never understood why we let people sign up late and influence the league. Brodie you always argued that some people can't commit to the NHL times, OK. If I'm going to accept that, I won't accept why an RA V can sign up late and influence the outcome of an NHL game from a CHL TC. Or why an NHL player can sign up for the AHL and play in G7 of the finals.

    I did it S11 playing CHL fwd and ECUing in the NHL for rad as a D in SJ. Every season the CHL TCs have a bunch of NHLers doing the same. If you sign up late you're stuck in the CHL on your highest ever contract and that's it. No fucking up AHL games or ECUing in the NHL.

    Late signups have been an exploit used to avoid certain levels and to abuse competition they should not be able to face. I personally think you should have to sign up before NHL bidding or you can't play at all, you have plenty of time to do it. There's no excuse.

    If late signups are allowed, you should automatically get your highest contract value, be assigned to the CHL TC at the worst team not already assigned a player, be forced to sit out two weeks, not be call-up eligible and not be eligible for postseason at any level.

    You dont even have to get out of bed to sign up. Absolutely zero understanding how "late" signups are a thing. 3seasons a year, over 8000 signups, .....doesnt seem to be any good reason why waiting a couple months to get in the following season isnt a thing. Not a lack of players signing on time..thats for certain

    Totally agree with this and I agree with people above who said that late signups shouldn't be a thing. There's ample time to sign up and it takes no effort/time. If you miss sign ups, just like anything else in life, gotta wait til the next opportunity. Should be no different here, IMO or else you'll always have people finding/exploiting loopholes.

    Disagree with the highest contract if you sign up late- there's no reason why someone who was bid up 4.5 mil 3 seasons ago should have to stick with that contract. Stuff changes and if you're going to allow late sign ups at all you should give an average of the total contracts the person was signed to. Hell- make this a statistic on LG's site so that owners bidding can see what their average value is.

    TLDR= Either don't allow late signups, or change the rule to more accurately reflect someone's value. You can always ban sand baggers on a case by case basis.

    This league should be used to move people up in the skill groups. None of us should be allowed to dodge moving up.
