Sept 2014 Changes
  • Players who are unsigned in the NHL can be signed to 4 year contracts (previously limited to 2 years)
  • Free agency age now mimics NHL CBA (June 30th as cutoff, instead of calendar year)
  • Discount to 1 year contract as the season progresses dialed down to 75% (previously higher)
  • No other changes - input, assumptions all same as last year otherwise.
August 9, 2013
Changes from last year.
a)  Showing whether your offer is a qualifying offer to RFA.
b)  Reintroduced the signing discount (the longer you wait into the season, the cheaper players are because they're desperate to play)
c)  Adjusted discount for 1 year deals to 95% of baseline value for young players.  Bridge deals are getting pricier as per real life.  Previously was 90% of baseline value. 
For those not familiar with this sheet:
a)  Enter in your players name on the left.
b)  Columns D-G shows what you need to bid to get a 90% probability of the player signing.  
c)  If you offer more than the guideline salary, higher probability of signing (and vice versa).
d)  Select the # of years you'd want to offer player (note guideline salary is different based on term of contract)
e)  Even if you offer a zillion dollars, max resigning probability is 98%, meaning that there's still a 2% chance the player doesn't want to sign with you.  
f)  Check column L to see status of your player whether he's RFA or UFA.
g)  If RFA, check column M to see if you gave him a qualifying offer.  If you didn't and he doesn't sign with you, he'll become a UFA.  If you gave a qualifying offer and he doesn't sign, he remains on your team and is subject to another offer and/or offer sheets from other GMs.

- Enter in  your contract value and years and your ACTUAL resigning probability is shown in column K

- RFA status is shown in column L

- Qualifying offer status is shown in column M - refer to rules to see what constitutes a qualifying offer

New features:

- As the season goes on, unsigned players will ask for less money (but only sign for 1 year on the cheap) - so if you want some last minute rental players, keep an eye out on the 1 yr contracts by the time trading deadline/signing deadline approaches

Timing to be determined by Nokians.  Any questions, feel free to fire it my way - Bombers.
