Free Agent Claims Open on October 1st, 2013
Free agent claims will begin on October 1st, 2013, the first day of the NHL season.
Each team will be allowed ONE free agent claim AND ONE waiver wire claim per week. (A total of TWO claims per week)
Claims will process on Fridays at 12:00 am Eastern Time (that's midnight)
Claims will be in the Reverse order of the standings and Serpentine.
---- When claims are processed, the lowest ranked team in the standings at that time gets first pick, the second lowest team gets second pick, and so on, all the way up to the first place team. Then in the next round, the first place team gets first pick, the second place team gets second pick, and so on, all the way down to the last place team. If a team doesn't have any more pending claims, their turn is skipped. This process continues until all teams have no more claims. For example, in a 4-team league, the order would go: 4, 3, 2, 1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 4, 3, 2, 1, etc.
