Our NHL Dynasty league is looking to fill 2 (possibly 3) vacancies before our upcoming Seattle expansion draft.
Our league utilizes contracts (via fantrax), proboards, and slack. It is a free league (other than the donation for the fantrax premium fee) and is going into it's sixth season.

If you are interested, please sign up under the GM sign up tab. A little about the vacancies:
Vegas Golden Knights - Back to back Stanley Cup champions. Easiest team to walk into a compete, however, you will need to get tricky to get under the salary cap. The team has a lot of young players that are about to get paid via RFA (see rules above) so the opportunity to go 3 peat is there, however, it will take a little manipulating. They play in a relatively weak Pacific Division which has helped them make the playoffs for the last 3 years, with the only real competition coming from Edmonton.
Detroit Red Wings - the complete opposite of Vegas, this team needs a lot of love. An owner who is patient and loves rebuilding needs to take this team on. It has been a revolving door of impatient GMs who do nothing but manipulate the roster to attempt to compete to realize it's not that simple. The team does have a lot of cap space and all of it's draft picks (plus other teams as well) so it's on the right path. You just need to be patient.
Florida Panthers - The 2017-18 Stanley Cup Champion and a perennial ECF participant, they are absolutely built to win now. This team is very similar to Vegas as it was well managed and an owner can step in from day one to compete. The team competes in a good division with Montreal and Ottawa, so it's been a little bit of a fight to win the division but come playoff time they always make noise.
If you're interested, let me know! As of right now, we are submitting our protection lists for the expansion draft (and plan on doing something similar to what the NHL did, announcing picks via a live zoom call). If nobody takes the teams over the commissioner team will submit the lists for the franchises. After that, our Rookie Draft takes place, followed by free agency.
