off to a pretty good start. i'd like to give thread regulars first dibs on teams, so if you aren't on this list just say you're in for the draft or something along those lines

Instead of a regular season thread this year we can just have a draft thread instead.

Some part of me is sure this is why Bettman let Winnipeg in, just to suffer until the league folds or contracts.

no idea. most likely another modern era draft. i really don't feel like making sure ~30 teams are compliant with the cap. if you have any rule opinions please speak up soon

It's been too long since the last draft and things are slow on the NHL reg front so I'm down for anything. Another modern era draft sounds good. Looking back, I made some really terrible picks in the last one.
No you don't get their current contract forever, you get the contract(s) they'll be on for the time period of this hypothetical dynasty. Guys on long-term deals won't be affected, but you'd have to assign a salary to anybody who will become a free agency. The contracts you 'sign' your draft picks to will probably have to be specified when you make the pick. As long as people are reasonable this shouldn't be an issue (just compare it to the types of deals specific groups of players get in the real NHL). This worked fine in the NBA draft.

They had interviews with 18-year old Canadian players asking them for their memories of the '72 series lol.

I would prefer casual fan-mode aka M.E. (we can brainstorm 2.0 tweaks).
