Post by htcp » Sat Sep 24, 2016 1:10 am

Probe League Eligibility
  • Any players drafted in the top 3 rounds is ineligible in any position.

    Players drafted in the 4th or 5th round will be ineligible to play if they participated in their ZHL game.
    Players drafted in the 4th or 5th round are ineligible to play together during a probe league game.

    Players drafted in the 6th round or later are eligible to play in all probe league games, given the following restrictions.

    If a 6th round player or later has played in more than 7 ZHL games they must play in the position that they did NOT play in ZHL games.
    • If they have played both positions in ZHL they are to play the position with less games in ZHL. If they have an equal amount of games in both positions the opposing captain will be able to decide which position they play.
    • If a player is position locked they will be ineligible to play in the probe game.
    If the team cannot field 4 players, they are allowed only 1 emergency Free Agent signing.
    • An Emergency Free Agent must be a player not currently on a ZHL or ZHPL roster.
    • The Emergency Free Agent must be approved by a League Manager or Opposing Owner.
    League Managers and Opposing Owners are allowed to grant exceptions to the rules restricting players deemed ineligible.

Probe League Playoffs
  • Probe Playoffs will have 6/10 teams participate, with the quarter and semifinals being Bo3 and the final being bo5.

    To become eligible for Probe League playoffs, players must meet all the following requirements:
    • Must have played 2 or more games in ZHPL during the Regular Season.
    • Must have played 7 or less games in ZHL during the Regular Season if drafted in or after the 6th round.
    • Must have played 5 or less games in ZHL during the Regular Season if drafted in the 4th or 5th round.
    • Must have more ZHPL games played than ZHL games played.
    Cannot be drafted in the top 3 round pick in the initial season Draft.

    All exceptions must be requested by respective owners or probe captains prior to the conclusion of the ZHL Regular Season.
    All exceptions must withstand the League Vote process prior to the start of ZHPL playoffs.
    Emergency Free Agents are not allowed during ZHPL Playoffs.

    Along with these Free agents will be allowed to participate in ZHPL Playoffs under the attendance locked rules.

Players drafted in the 6th round or later are eligible to play in all probe league games, given the following restrictions.

If a 6th round player or later has played in more than 7 ZHL games they must play in the position that they did NOT play in ZHL games.


Probe League Playoffs

To become eligible for Probe League playoffs, players must meet all the following requirements:
[*]Must have played 7 or less games in ZHL during the Regular Season if drafted in or after the 6th round
I would like to talk about the 7 game restriction for 6th round and lower.

It seems like that targets teams that either A. Have attendance issues or B. Have a player that improved from a 6th round or later into being a zhl starter. I understand that having a player play both leagues removes a slot for another player to be in, but you also did force more competition in zhpl by limiting number of teams that make playoffs. So it's sort of a backhand to the probe captain that drafted the improved player or a backhand to the team that has attendance issues or both.

I recommend removing the aforementioned 7 game restrictions. It might hurt a zhl/zhpl team simply because zhl wants to steal a player originally drafted to zhpl or it might hurt a zhl/zhpl because of attendance issues.

If there is no consistency in handing out exceptions, please remove them all together, as otherwise LM's get to decide who is probe level and who isn't based on their biased personal opinion.

Also, these rules are way too long and complicated.
I shouldn't have to reread this thread every single time there's a probe game because there's too many rules, most of them completely unnecessary and meaningless.
