Prospect Roster Rules
Players on the prospect roster can be promoted and demoted as many times as the GM wishes (unlimited call-ups and demotions), provided the player still meets the eligibility requirements for a prospect.
If the player is promoted once he has reached the age of 25 and/or has played in 25 or more NHL games, he must remain either on the active roster or in the reserves (if necessary a player must be dropped from the active or reserve roster to make space for the promoted prospect).
A prospect who has reached the age of 25 and/or 25+ NHL games may remain on the prospect roster during the season for as long as the GM wishes. At the beginning of the next season, any player on the prospect roster who no longer meets the eligibility requirements must be promoted to the active roster or to the reserve roster.
If the promotion of a prospect results in a team roster becoming illegal, the necessary move(s) to make the team legal (dropping a player, etc.) must be immediately made upon call-up.
For the 2012-13 season ONLY, a prospect who would have met eligibility requirements had there been no lockout (and the season had begun on time) is permitted to remain on the prospect roster until promoted or until the beginning of the 2013-14 season.
There will be TWO IR (injured reserve) spots available per team. A player CANNOT be placed on the IR unless he has been officially placed there by his NHL team.
If you place more than two players on to your IR, your roster will become illegal and your team will not accumulate any points. If your IR is found to have more than two players, the Commissioner will make the necessary moves to make your roster compliant.
You have one full line-up period to move your player(s) off the IR after he has officially been removed from it in the NHL. What this means is that with a weekly Monday line-up period, say your player comes off the IR on Wednesday, you have one full period + up until the Monday after that to move your player off. That's a total of 12 days.
If you DO NOT make the necessary moves within the one lineup period, the Commissioner will make the necessary changes for you. If a player must be dropped to make room for the player coming off the IR, the Commissioner will randomly draw a name from ALL players on your team (this includes goaltenders) and drop the player that is picked. This means that ANY PLAYER on your team could be dropped should the Commish be forced to handle your roster moves for you.
THE IR RULES APPLY DURING THE POSTSEASON AND OFF-SEASON
For the 2012-13 season the NHL's trade deadline is Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013.
The trade deadline for this league will be Sunday, April 7th, 2013. After this date trades and other transactions will no longer be allowed. ROSTERS WILL BE FROZEN.
If your team's roster is illegal, you have 48 hours to make it compliant.
If you do not do so within 48 hours, the Commissioner will make the necessary moves to make your roster compliant.
Reminding you, yet one more time!
If the Commissioner is forced to make the necessary roster moves for you and a player must be dropped, the Commissioner will randomly draw a name from ALL players on your team (this includes goaltenders) and drop the player that is picked. This means that ANY PLAYER on your team could be dropped should the Commish be forced to go this route.
Line-up changes are allowed to be made by the team owners/GMs.

Player drop are allowed in the case that room must be made on a team roster for a player returning from the IR
