With the amount of complaining going on everywhere, can someone from staff publicly explain how all these guys who've been in the NHL for 8 seasons or owners who owned NHL teams for the whole of NHL 17 are eligible for AHL management? I thought there was strict rules in place to stop NHL talent from taking AHL teams and, to put it simply, fucking shit up. Especially the previous owners with how hard it was to apparently find owners this season.
Examples being: brisan, potsy, s4k, colonel, etc.
@LG McDonald @Tiddus
So the rule is to prevent top tier NHL players; Gilleh, Soccer, Lan, GB, etc
Based on the last 6/9 seasons the talent gap between a 2/3 line NHL player and a 1/2 line AHL player has drastic shrunk. Gunwoat is arguably the the best forward in the AHL last season and was a GM. He is better than all four examples you gave.
Tranny and Wonger are also great examples, both have 3rd line NHL success and will be top AHL players.
The formula we are using is basically Individual Player Skill > Management Experience
At the AHL level a GB or a PureFishin give that team a MAJOR advantage. Looking at the make up of AHL rosters, a majority of teams will need to build via bidding which never is easy. So yes the experience a Brisan or Potsy bring will help but they aren't any further ahead than you are.
Mackie playing LW is a better forward than Potsy or Colonel and equal to a S4k(who may not even get a spot for being a cancer)
Brisan is playing forward and was 10-8 and 8-8 in his last two seasons in the AHL.
4thLine is always a better forward than those examples you gave.
I don't see these guys truly "fucking up" the AHL. If anything it allows us to remove a few bottom GMs who lack experience and AHL skill if I am being blunt. It'll give us a more competitive AHL.
At the end of the day we cannot force people into certain tiers or management. The restrictions we have are also put in place to avoid balancing issues which I think we've accomplished that.
In an ideal world our top tier, the NHL, would be the goal of everyone. But we just aren't there yet and won't be for a while unless we get a majority attitude adjustment by our players.
I understand your point and questions, but we have done our homework and do feel those guys we have let back won't imbalance the AHL based on the guys who want to return and the depth and strength we already maintain season to season in the AHL.
I hope that touches on everything
@l Gabella l
Joe Nah is on the NML, he isn't eligible and wont be management for the Thunderbirds
Thank you, I will fix that.
Thank you very much good sir, an explanation was all I personally was looking for and I'm sure others were as-well.
Was away on course last week lol.. playing made catch up between 24 hour shifts..
In the next few seasons we will get a better idea. We are going to roll out a new ESHL format and schedule soon and after a few events we can get a true feel for "top talent".
Right now tiddus and I are just debating back and forth as applicants come in
Scratch that my bad..
He is good
As long as you have guys that would rather play in ahl then nhl. You will always have that problem of nhlers who have nhl mngt experience. Maybe there should be a hard deadline for bidding for all levels. No more joining after nhl bidding.
Guys who sign up late are stuck on Chl tcs.
I for one would like to know who is advising @Tiddus on what "talent" is.
