Welcome everybody to my 3rd Franchise Mode posted to the site! After a relative success with the Detroit Red Wings, I take my GM skills (or lack thereof) to the newest expansion team, the Houston Bulls! Hope you guys enjoy. The way this Franchise Mode will work is I will play under 32 team league as the expansion team, the Houston Bulls. The Bulls play out of Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, a possible site for a new team as it has a large market, hockey history, and NHL-ready arena. I know Seattle will definitly get a team over Houston (they basically already have one), but to even out the divisions I chose Houston. To also shake up the league, I have relocated the Arizona Coyotes to Seattle as the Thunderbirds and the Florida Panthers to Quebec as a reincarnation of the Nordiques. With that out of the way, here are the rules. Mode: 32 Team Expansion Draft Division Realignment: Houston Bulls (Expansion) to Central Divison 31st AHL Team (St. Louis): Oklahoma City Outlaws 32nd AHL Team (Houston): Kansas City Mavericks (pretend they got promoted to the AHL like the Colorado Eagles) Owner Mode: On Fantasy Draft: Off NHL Salary Cap: On GM Firing: Off CPU Trades: On Player Morale: On Morale Meetings: On Waivers: On Assistant Coach Edit Lines: Off Auto Finances: Off Accept Relocation: Off Auto Sign Free Agents: Off Injuries: Off Difficulty: Pro Authentic Cap Penalties: On Draft Pick Ownership: Authentic Looking forward to this Franchise, all the changes should be fun. Hope you all enjoy!
