Probe League Playoff Eligibility

Post by Kyle » Mon Oct 06, 2014 2:43 pm

Probe League Playoff match-ups are going to be in flux until the end of the week, just like Tassadar Cup match-ups. The 2nd place team is only 2 points ahead of the 5th place team right now (apparently we did a REALLY good job of finding parity in probe league). Also, all 8 teams will be playing in the Probe League Playoffs, unlike ZHL, so that leaves room for even more ambiguity on match-ups right now. But I wanted to give owners/captains a heads up on their players' eligibility for the playoffs.

Because there is no ZHL equivalent match-up for a probe league playoff game, the rules for playoff eligibility are slightly different. Any player who appeared in more than 4 ZHL games throughout the regular season is not eligible to play in the Artanis Cup Playoffs. There are, once again, exceptions that can be made if a full squad cannot be fielded (but only if a full squad can't be fielded), and additional exceptions can be made at the discretion of a 2/3 majority vote of the other teams. For starters, here's a list of players on each team's roster that are not eligible to play for the Artanis Cup, in order of current ZHPL standings:

New Gettysburg Aviators
Guerrila
Bulbasaaur
Strawberry
Amin
stealth

Shakuras Crusaders
Watermelon
TownKrier
Critt
Art

Zerus Broodlings
Ruckle
Cherry
brucecambell
MrAlertEyes
Blitzerg
Fable

Zenn Chill
Maharishi
ooter
Vapour
Ranchinator
Perplex
daggius

Tarsonis City Wildcats
Kaioken
Cafca
IrishLad
Droplets
reputed

Korhal Warthogs
Kurt
PeterDLai
Samwise
CountryKen
Darkangel

Kaldir Snowmen
Kholin
RusH
ZachSmack
Eric
LinGKinG*

Mar Sara Hazards
PrOsTeR
rasputin
Teroh
krazymen

*indicates a player with 4 ZHL games played entering today; will actually be eligible if they do not play in last game of the season.

Note that Tassadar Cup Playoff appearances do not count against a player's 4 game maximum to remain eligible for the Artanis Cup.


Eligibility exceptions
  • -As in the regular season, if not enough eligible players are available at the time of a Probe League Playoff game, a maximum of two ineligible players from that team's roster may play in an opposite role (goalie skates, skater goaltends). The difference with this rule for the playoffs is that this player cannot have played any ZHL games in the role they'll be serving in the Artanis Cup. Also, new addition to the rule: priority goes to the available player with the least ZHL games played during the regular season. So if two ZHL skaters are available to be the probe team's goalie, the one with fewer games played must be used (no Guerrilas in net, plx).
  • -If this still isn't enough for a team to field a full squad, one emergency signing may be made to add a player not on any team's roster. This signing lasts for the duration of the playoffs, effectively adding that player to the team's probe league roster.
Now, this is the time for team owners and/or captains to plead their case for exceptions beyond those mentioned above. If at least 5 teams + the commissioner (that's me), or at least 6 teams, vote in favor of the exception you've requested, it will be granted. If you wait until match time to try to plead your case, it will fall on deaf ears. Make your exception requests now.

Zerus should just get a team wide exception.

Zerus isn't gonna ask for Ruckle or bruce to be eligible for the Artanis Cup, because that would be silly. Anybody else that other teams vote in favor of allowing us to play, though, we're totally okay with.

I request Samwise be able to play goalie for Korhal (I think he only played in net 3 games + a little bit of another game)

I also think it's fine if Perplex, daggius (skater), MrAlertEyes OR Fable in skating role, AlertEyes in net and Fable skating OK too, and Blitzerg play.

I'm against all of those suggestions so far lol. Those are ZHL quality players. Play in the ZHL playoffs. Let probies play in the ZHPL tourney.

Edit: except perplex and daggius should be allowed to skate. And maybe cable/alert eyes allowed to goalie but not skate.
