Premium Eliminator League with Leaguesafe

Recommended Posts

This is a Total Season Points eliminator. There are no eliminations for the first 4 weeks of play after the draft. After that, the team at the bottom of the standings is eliminated every week until the league has been reduced from 18 teams to 4. Those final 4 continue to battle until the end of the regular season, at which point our league champion is declared. 

2017-18 Elimination Schedule 

10.04.17 - The 2017/18 NHL season begins 

10.29.17 - First elimination. The team in last place has its roster dropped and made available to the rest of the league via free agent auction. 

The last place team in the league after Sunday's schedule of games is eliminated each week, except for shortened weeks like Christmas Break, All-Star Break, etc. 

Once 14 teams have been eliminated, the 4 remaining teams continue to battle for the remaining weeks with no eliminations. The top team at the end of the NHL regular season lights the lamp as league champion!! 

After an Elimination 
When a team is eliminated, its roster is dropped to free agency and the surviving teams can pick those players up via FAAB waivers on Tuesday. Waivers run at 12 PM Eastern every day except Mondays. 

Each team starts with 150 FAAB dollars to spend on free agents over the course of the season. Minimum bid is 0. 

Cellar Dweller FAAB Bonus 
$5: To the team at the bottom of the standings on Sunday night after a team has been eliminated. Use the bonus to get out of the basement before the next elimination. 
* Awarded every Sunday night after an elimination BUT NOT on shortened weeks when there are no eliminations. 
* Not awarded to the bottom team in the Final 4. 

FAAB Refill 
Any team below $5 FAAB at the time of an elimination will be reset to $5 on Monday morning. You will never go broke. You will always have some budget to bid on players after an eliminated team's roster is dropped. 
* If a team is below $5 and qualifies for the Cellar Dweller Bonus, it gets the bonus on top of the FAAB Refill. 

There will be a final FAAB Refill for the final 4 teams. If you're out of cash, you'll need to make that last until the end of the season. 

Goalie Roster Limits 
The goalie limit is 2 at the draft and up through the first elimination, to ensure all teams are able to roster a couple of regulars. After the first elimination, the limit will be increased to 3. After the second, the limit increases to 4. After the third, the limit increases to 5 where it remains for the rest of the season. 

Transaction Limit 
Teams can make a maximum of 100 player adds. Stream forwards and goalies to move up the standings but be aware of the transaction limit. 

League Fee & Prizes 
Each owner must pay $20 to LM before the draft. If you have not paid before the draft, you will not be permitted to draft. 

Prizes: $200 for 1st, $100 for 2nd, $40 for 3rd, $20 for 4th.
