Will the Fantrax site have the players real salaries loaded for Sunday when we draft?

Speaking of that, is our cap going to be the same as the NHL's?

Also, could we please get an explanation of what we (team owners) will be responsible for on Fantrax?

There are still no salary cap numbers in Fantrax. Are these going to be loaded in before the draft?

For the team abbreviations on Fantrax, do we want those to reflect our team names?
Right now the abbreviation for my team is "BF"

Another tip for Fantrax, if you know that you are going to have Fantrax autodraft for you from your Draft Queue, there is little box below your Draft Queue area that you can check so it will immediately make your pick as soon as you are up. This will keep it from waiting the time limit before it times out and picks for you.

Does anyone need a 'tutorial' on how to adjust your roster on Fantrax?

If you are claiming someone off of waivers, make sure you manipulate your roster so that the player will fit within the roster restrictions; 9 starting forwards, 4 starting dman, 5 bench, and 11 minor leaguers. The best method to do major league players is to put the player you are going to drop on your bench, and when keying in the waiver add, make sure you choose the new player to go to your bench. Also, make sure your major roster is within cap regulations if possible. If adding a minor leaguer, just make sure you choose the added player to go to the Minors, again while making sure your within cap regulations if possible.
