?

Should there be a rule change to allow AHL players extra time for NHL ECUs

  1. Yes, allowing extra time makes sense because they are online

    47.5%
  2. No, don't ECU if you are scheduled Back 2 Back with an AHL game

    47.5%
  3. Other Suggestion (See thread below)

    Day 1 of Week 4 and we already have some rule controversy!

    Last night the Cudas vs Pens game was FF'd due to an AHL player on the Pens being caught up in an NHL ECU game.

    The game was reportedly called at 11 minutes passed game time (9:30pm) as the current LGAHL rules allows. It looks like roughly the same lineup was in the 10:30pm game as the 9:30pm game for the Cudas, so there might have been some other league schedule/personale issues in terms of waiting around for an NHL game to finish. (reason is irrelevant)

    All the bullshit and salt aside, does this warrant a rule change?

    My proposition is allowing up to 10 minutes past the normal mercy time (20 minutes total) for a team that has an AHL player ECUing for an NHL team. After 20 minutes the NHL ECU team needs to fill in their lineup with an actual ECU because there needs to be a limit in terms of getting AHL games going. Extra time would need to be proved by the AHL player in question being in an NHL lineup at the same time either on the site or on stream (proving the game is still running).

    ECU's are EMERGENCY call ups. An AHL player ECUing for an NHL team isn't necessarily an emergency situation. If the NHL game gets going 10+ minutes past start time then that AHL player is SOL for his scheduled game during the next half hour. NHL ECUs should be encouraged for AHL players because the AHL is (like it or not) is a developmental league for the Biggies.

    Would love to get some discussion going for a potential rule change. Keep the shitposting out of this thread, as what happened last night was 100% by the rules. Disagree with the "sportsmanship" of it if you like, but clearly something should change in this particular situation so that this doesn't happen (again) in the Playoffs or effect the outcome of someones season (like Toffoli had mentioned in the SB)

    Down for different opinions and suggestions! Friendly discussion people!

    NHL can use prospects now which wasn't available before. Nobody wants to be sitting around waiting for their schedule games, people have shit to do even though some of you dont. It is probably best to not try and ECU players that are currently scheduled for a game that night.

    Why did league change from 15 minutes ready time to 10 this season. If this was going to be an issue. Teams need to be more prepared.

    They used to have a rule in the books that said the NHL couldn't use players as ECU's if they were scheduled for a game that day in the AHL. Dumb that they removed that rule.

    No there is just this hidden rule that all owners used to go by of not Ff teams for something dumb, I was in contact the whole time with Sakic, and letting them know everything that was happening. But it’s a owner who already knew the outcome and decided to take the free points.

    No rules should be unwritten or hidden. Creates too much confusion.

    It's 10 now, you deserve the loss. People shouldn't have to wait around because one player wants to squeeze in an nhl game. Should have had an ecu for him.

    They told me I have 1 minute to get one and 1 minute I said ECU coming was literally joining club you’re just like these trash dudes. About 99% if owners would rather earn there wins rather than take them, they knew they had no shot. Bums will be bums

    If anything Pens Management should be at fault for your loss Toffoli. Coming from a manager who has had players that have other obligations at certain times of the night makes it hard. All the shit that adds into when they can play and certain times they can play filled with all the other shit that comes with managing a team and all the other shit that players have going on I can see why a FF was handed out. But I don't think its a Cuda problem as much as it seems like the NHL Pens were unprepared which fucked you over in the end. Shitty situation and I think both sides are to blame but it is what it is. Next time you play them, beat that ass. You guys will bounce back.

    There are rules in place for a reason. Whether it's 10 min or 15 min you're still going to have the same time gap between AHL and NHL.

    IMO this situation is resolved with either A) not allowing a scheduled AHL player to ECU for an NHL squad within 30 min or B) the AHL management needs to be prepared to ECU that scheduled player in the upcoming game.

    Forfeits are the last thing you want to do because we all want to play but if you can't make it on time then the opposing team has every right to ff. Bitch move or not, be on time, we've all spent more than enough time waiting in this lobby simulator.

    Sucks for AHL management but they have to be ready with an ECU, I know every season I've been in the AHL we've had TC's chomping at the bit to get in. It's your responsibility to get them in the game if the need is there.

    11 minutes or 16 minutes, I just think they should have had an ecu ready from the jump. You want to prevent FF wins, then have your pieces in place.
