Starting to gear up for my eventual rebuild. I franchised Mike van Olphen last season, so my timeline is to blow it up when his franchise tag expires, leaving my core with between 0 and 18 potential. I might do it a year sooner depending on how the next couple of seasons go UFA and YS wise. I don't mind hanging on to MvO an extra year if it makes the most sense. the beauty thing is, my goal for this rebuild was to win a league championship (not yet), win a playoff title (check), win the NC (finished 2nd a few seasons ago, qualified for NCHC) and play a solid world league season (check). Even if I don't accomplish the two remaining goals, I'm satisfied with this rebuild.

From what I can tell, the market for top tier youth has toned down somewhat, and the market for top tier vets has heated up. The logical side of me says that now's the time to cash out. Maybe I go now. I don't know. I haven't been in the market in so long I don't even know what my team would sell for. (Jesus, since I started writing this my rebuild timeframe shrank from 3 seasons to right now.) Any thoughts?

In order of potential remaining:
Jergus Huncik, -6 P, 337 AI, 123 Def, 32 Sco, 373 exp. +3
Yanis Brun, 0P, 328 AI, 120 Def, 33 Sco, 335 exp. -1, 65 day contract.
Herbert Hanacek, 6P, 328 AI, 119 Shot, 30 Sco, 348 exp, -1, 116 day contract
Wilfried Handel, 6P, 320 AI, 93 off, 30 Sco, 380 exp, -2, 71 day contract
Lukacs Illeshazy, 12 P, 284 AI, 120 Goal, 196 exp, NT Hungary, -1, 20 day contract (gulp)
Marat Ogarkov, 18 P, 300 AI, 124 def, 25 Sco, 271 exp, -2, 207 day contract (Highest bid was 330 mil)
Bartolomej Francel, 18P, 317 Ai 114 Shot, 26 Sco, 253 exp, -1, 54 day contract
Tomi Kilpianen, 18 P, 316 AI 100 off, 25 sco, 277 exp, -2, 44 days.
Narciso Delgado, 18 P, 278 AI, 107 Def, 26 Sco, 275 exp, +3
Dragoslav Tanovic, 18P, 275 AI, 108 Def, 26 sco, 245 exp, +3
Shamus Douglass, 24P, 338 Ai, 106 shot, 254 exp, -2, 140 days, NT Ireland
Mike van Olphen, 24 P, 326 Ai, 96 off, 289 exp, Franchise, will be NT Germany
Ian Sealey, 29P, 265 Ai, 91 Shot, 204 exp, +1, 145 days

Of course the new T/R business has to factor into my plans as well. And I have no clue how they should.

Not a whole lot of options out there for good youth. I have a bid on a goalie that's 92/-1/?-.

I'm hoping there's a million promising looking 16 year olds sitting in youth schools all across the world.

Also, I guess I'm saying goodbye to my goalie, because I don't really feel like matching a 500 million dollar bid.

Yeesh, if you develop him properly (e.g. tolerate all the suffering) then that -1 is going to a real pain in the ass. I hope you get a better option.

Didn't end up taking that guy. He went for 280, which would probably still be ok. He was a Czech though, which means probably no U20 for him.

Rebuild is in full swing now. Goalie is gone for 350 mil in compensation, and 3 players now on the market.

Bid on this guy. Scouted at 91/Max-1. Won't bid any higher though, because AI is low and exp is 0. Total 3rd line t/s.
