The SHL is a hockey player sim league that has been running strong for over thirty seasons in its current iteration! Through the use of Simon T. Hockey Simulator and a unique progression system, the SHL promises to be just what you're looking for and more!
Federation Heads: Each IIHF Federation is run by a maximum two, minimum one person governing board. This governing board is in charge of that federation for as long as their player is a member of that country or until they resign. The selection of a new person to this position when someone retires or resigns can be hand chosen by the existing member, or if none is given then by the commissioner.
The federation has the option to select a coach instead of an additional member of the governing board for each term and this coach must be announced at the beginning of every SHL season, rather than at the end of it. This will speed up the process and the two man governing board, plus the coach, will determine the roster throughout the season and have it set by the time the SHL playoffs are underway. This sets up a three man team for each season and each country.
Rosters: -Roster Size: 20, allowing for 4 lines of forward, 3 defensive pairings, and 2 goalies; teams may use their final 2 defensive roster spots on forwards if no more forwards are available to them
-You must always pick an active over an inactive, unless the active has less than 250 tpe. In that case, you may leave the active off of your roster in favor of the inactive. Inactive is defined as not having signed on for 1 month.
-You are able to drop an inactive on the roster for an active at any point up to the medal stage of the tournament. Once an active is placed on a roster he must be played for the remainder of the tournament.
IIHF International Transfer Regulations
IIHF Transfers can fall into two categories:
A) Transfer of a Player from an Unassigned IIHF Region
- If a player's birthplace is not from one of the 12 assigned IIHF Regions, they are eligible for transfer to any IIHF Region. - Unassigned SMJHL Rookies CANNOT be contacted before the beginning of the SMJHL Playoffs - Nations may have unlimited unassigned player transfers.
B ) Transfer of a Player from an Assigned IIHF Region - If a player's birthplace is from one of the the 12 assigned IIHF Regions, they are eligible for transfer to any other IIHF region if they have not yet been dressed in a "simulated game" for their nation. - Assigned SMJHL Rookies CANNOT be contacted before the beginning of the SMJHL Playoffs - Nations may only have one assigned player transfer per season.
In both categories, a player may only transfer regions once! This is Regardless of whether the player is used on a nation's active roster or not.
1) IIHF transfers will be OPEN whenever the eligible player list has been sufficiently updated for the beginning of the season (hopefully by the start of the regular season).
2) IIHF transfers will CLOSE when the off-season tournament begins.
Limit on the Amount of Players that can Transfer out of a nation per season:
Limits will be determined at the beginning of the transfer season for the whole season as follows:
25 eligible players or less = 0 Transfers out of the Nation 26 - 35 eligible players = 1 Transfer out of the Nation 36 - 45 eligible players = 2 Transfers out the Nation 46 or more eligible players = 3 Transfers out of the Nation
Tampering: -Do not PM new members asking them to create for your nation, as it is tampering. You will be punished by not being able to perform any transfer for one full season as well as a fine and suspension on the first offense. If there is a second offense, you will be fired as well. In order to attract new players, you must rely on the thread you posted in the "International Recruiting" subforum. There will be a new welcome message sent to all new sign ups automatically that will link to that section.
Rankings: -Now the rankings, which will use the formula used by FIFA for their World Rankings, though slightly altered. It will look like:
Ranking Points = 100 (Result Points x Match Status x Assessment Period)
The points from this calculation will then be added whatever the team previously has.
-Result Points: 3 for win with no OT or SO, 2 for win with OT or SO, 1 for OTL or SOL, 0 for a loss
-Match Status: x1 for friendlies, x2.5 for Round Robin, x3 for Playoff match, x4 for Gold Medal match
-Assessment Period: Last season = x1, Two seasons ago = x.5, Three seasons ago = x.3, Four seasons ago = x.2
