    I do think there should be a minimum number of log-ins per month. At least check your team twice per month or something like that.
    It is easy to figure out when they last logged in, but if as has been suggested, you need to login 20 times per month, that is not easy to figure out. You have to go in daily and tick off who was there that day or record the last date for each person every day. Twice a month is easier, but you still have to be on top of it, because if someone logs in on the 14th and again on the 16th and whoever tracks this doesn't notice it and only sees at the end that when they checked on the 12th they hadn't logged in and when they checked on the 17th they last logged in the 16th and then not again for the rest of the month, it just makes a big mess and headache to manage. Easiest to say once per month or once per two week period or once per week or something that can be done every Friday or every 15th and last day of month or just the last day of the month.

    There will also be more changes made including adding another person with Commissioner "powers" so that trades and the like are processed more quickly.

    Changes to the rules for minors eligibility (more games played allowed)

    Daily roster moves may be allowed.

    The Gordie Howe hat-trick will be removed and points shots will go from 0.1 to 0.2

    Stricter rules regarding inactive owners.

    Clearly items 1 and 4 are welcome, in fact, i would be shocked if it not unanimous among all owners.
    But where in world did 2 and 3 come from? And why would those be changed?

    GHHT I don't care one way or the other, eliminate it or reduce down to the same as a Hat Trick, we have spent to much time on an event that happens 10x a year.

    As for as the SOG, what prompted this? did the .1 seem off base? I guess i don't care one way or the other, but it just came out of no where considering there are other scorings that I would feel should be reviewed first.

    As far as the daily roster moves, we can't get 1/2 of 28 owners to pay attention on a weekly basis, much less daily. I get the drawback of the weekly rosters. In fact, if you will remember last year, i lost my starting goalie 5 weeks in a row to benching/injuries and in many cases took zeros so i have seen both sides of this. I don't like daily lineups, it changes our whole league and it will prompt review of roster size/configuration; It will change the values of the positions in an instant. This is a pretty significant move, and myself am not in favor of this at all.

    The two scoring changes were debated during our town hall meeting several nights ago in Fantrax Chat.... pretty sure (if you're interested) you can go back and see both topics introduced and debated in the old Chat History. I personally like both changes because it takes out the massive variance of GHHT (which is a random occurrence on the best of days) yet still props-up skater value (relative to 'tenders) by upping SOG's. SOG's are very (very) important, and the change may help us Fancy-Stats lovers pick guys who are actually good... and not, ya know, pick up the Douglas Murrays of the world.

    "Daily moves" is concerning ... but interesting.

    On the one hand, as H&O intimated, we have too few 'active' owners as it is, I have three points that need to be discussed.

    1.) This type of change could either bring a ton of guys back into the fold... or push those folks away. Until we hear from more of them, we don't know which it will be... but there could be some movement in-season as well (where we either gain or lose league activity during our '14/'15 campaign because of the fun [or negatively, the necessity] of making daily moves).

    2.) One of the biggest issues I see with daily moves is the current system itself. I know we have stated that we might utilize fantrax for moves ... at least in the interim.... but daily moves almost necessitate Fantrax-centric transactions. Why? Because, while Selly's retroactive-move-making works in a week to week basis, the dozens of daily moves with the adjusted arrangement would make this problematic to say the least and untenable at worst. I know the league's new vice-commissioners would help - but any missed transactions would be exceedingly problematic (and the problem would compound with every day missed).

    3.) As H&O also indicated, player valuations would be significantly changed. A deeper roster would be advisable - and the one-elite-goaltender system would go in the trash and 'dynamic duos' (maybe even trios) would be the name of the game. When we have teams with multiple elite tenders... and some with one... and some with none... we might be dramatically altering the balance of power in the League.

    As it stands, I'm not a fan of this proposed change right now because we don't have definitive answers for my concerns in #1 and #2 .... and #3 stands to shift power significantly with an 'off-ice' decision.

    Aside from the daily roster moves, I would be happy with seeing those changes implemented. I would keep the roster mods/moves done on a weekly basis.

    I would also like to see possibly increasing the prospect eligibility for goalies increased to 26 y.o.

    Also included in this, I will be making some changes to my personal schedule, as well as to my internet provider and to my computer to (hopefully) eliminate the issues I have had with absences during this season
