2019 NFHL Survey
Indicates required field
1. NFHL ROSTER SELECTION FORMAT
For the 2018-19 season the NFHL moved the Phase 1 (Active) deadline the day before the season started and the Phase 2 (Reserve Roster) selection in to the season approximately 7 days. Prior to the change this season the Phase 1 (Active) roster deadline took place approximately 7 days PRIOR to season start and the Phase 2 (Reserve) rosters the day prior to season start.
COMMISSIONERS COMMENT: The new 'in season' format was instituted mainly due to how Officepool administration configuration was changed to only allow the admin to have one deadline date as opposed to two dates options in previous seasons. Each format has
advantages with the new 'in season' format all NHL preseason games are completed when Phase 1 selection are made therefore all injury, player demotions and status are better known. The previous 'before season' format NHL GM's had less insight into other NFHL team player selections and visibility to player performance prior to Phase 2 selections making it a more
challenging selection process.
Preferred Roster Selection Format
Phase 1 deadline before season start with Phase 2 in season. (2018/19 Season format)
Phase 1 AND Phase 2 deadlines occurring before season start.
2. NFHL TRANSACTIONS
The NFHL allows for 10 transaction total per season. There has been a 'few' requests to increase the amount of transactions available per season.
COMMISSIONERS COMMENT: The league would consider an increase to the transaction count should an overwhelming majority of GM's be in favor of such action. The existing 10 transaction the league presently limits is a number the league is more than satisfied with. It brings challenge of transaction usage throughout the season without GM's having to be too
over focused on the league on a daily basis. That being said, the league is providing two additional options for consideration. Increase the transaction count to 12 for the entire season OR leave the overall transaction count limit at 10 however
allow each NFHL team 2 transactions (if they so choose to
NHL trade deadline day (i.e February 24, 2020) that would not go against the NFHL teams 10 transaction limit. This could bring some late season strategy and on an administrative perspective
is preferable as a potential for 110 additional transaction would not need to be approved throughout the year but could be accomplished in the one day.
Preferred Transaction Format
10 Transactions per season (No Change)
12 Transaction per season
10 Transactions per season with 2 free transactions available only on NHL Trade Deadline day.
