Every GM has filled out the form above and this is the new system we will be using starting this summer...
All teams get 1 UFA re-sign.
1st round teams - Extra 7.5% Bonus on UFA bidding, 1 extra FA bonus pt.
2nd Round teams - Extra 12% Bonus on UFA bidding, 2 extra FA bonus pts.
3rd Round teams - Extra 18% Bonus on UFA bidding, 3 extra FA bonus pts.
Stanley Cup teams - The option to choose between an extra UFA Re-signing (must be on team by TDL) or an 18% bonus. 4 extra FA bonus points.
Another change is that instead of every team being able to re-sign next year’s re-sign, only the top 20 teams will have the option to do so, which makes playoffs more enticing.
As a refresher this is how UFA bidding works; A team bids 5 x 5 and uses 2 FA bonus points and an 18% discount. The 2 bonus points would make this offer be worth 27 points instead of 25 (5x5). The 18% bonus would add 18% of the bidded contract to this total, in this case 4.5 points. Using all those bonuses, this offer would come out to 31.5 points. The top 3 offers are put in a weighted lottery and a winner is picked.
