Thought this would be fun to do after the Olympics, because I am just really interested and curious about this stuff.
Let's just pretend that 2 new teams are being made for the league going into the 2014-2015 season:
Kansas City Outlaws - Western Conference - Central Division
Seattle Metropolitans - Western Conference - Pacific Division
Using the same rules as the 2000 NHL expansion draft, you are to build a team from the list of available players. The goal would be to make the playoffs: more kudos to you if you can get a team there in the 1st season (this will probably be determined by NHL forums voting).
I will supply the list of eligible players and the specific rules later. I just want to see if there are 3-5 people (a bit more possibly - if there is interest) that are willing to participate in this little project/game. Then we'll go from there. Please be confident in your hockey knowledge as it will make it much more interesting that way.
I'm also open to any other little adjustments/suggestions to this.
