I have been thinking about this in the past few weeks. Now that the bonus is up and running, I hope to announce the full ground rules shortly (how many players will make up a roster in the hockey pool, transactions, etc). I will do some research and planning and let you know shortly.

I think trading would work, as long as I am allowed to veto any clearly lopsided trades. Also I would have to create set trading periods throughout the year, so it doesn't become too much to manage constant transactions.

I'd suggest trading be allowed at set intervals such as 1 weekend per month, or one day every 2 weeks, as well as an established trade deadline that coincides with the actual deadline, meaning that no one stacks their roster prior to the playoffs. I'd also suggest that active rosters be set once a week with no mid week changes. In the playoffs changes would be locked at the start of each round, with the final period covering both the conference and cup finals.

Some pools use a salary cap system, but given that we each only have access to a limited roster that we forego this system, allowing for 3 forwards, 2 defense, and a goalie per session.

As for scoring, I am partial to skaters getting 1 point for each goal/assist and goalies using a 2-1-0 system for win/ot loss/loss. The only hesitation here is that ot doesn't reward defensive play, only offensive.

Additionally I'd add a "coaches challenge" that would allow 1 substitution mid session, these could be given out as a certain amount per month, or added to the roster bag meaning that they must be drawn (recommend a draw again with these, much like Mike's dart prizes)

Thanks for the input.

There will be no salary cap system, as members with the biggest available roster (or those who get luckiest with quality of players drawn for them) will have the advantage. That's the benefit of being an active participant in the bonus.

I do plan on running this bonus, or a version of it, sometime throughout the season to allow for people to add to or improve their teams.

I hope to set it up so that everyone has all players that they have unlocked available to manage on their own rosters, and may manage their lineups at the beginning of every week or two weeks. I still have to do some research into how Pickuphockey.com works, but from what I've seen it is fully customizable.

I hope to announce active roster sizes soon so that members can start to plan their strategies, but based on the positive response and amount of participation in the bonus so far, I would expect us to go with at least two forward and defensive lines + one goalie.

I am also expecting to add more bonuses in the coming weeks.
