Dynasty Cap Structure

Postby Ford Prefect » Fri Aug 30, 2019 10:37 am

There was some discussion among the mods about a change to Dynasty's cap structure earlier when the poll was posted for changes to Classic's cap structure. Here's a poll to gauge league feelings for a cap change in Dynasty.

Basically, with the current structure not being indexed by a percentage, as the NHL cap increases Dynasty's cap effectively shrinks percentage wise. To fix that, it is proposed that we assign a percentage to add to the NHL cap to establish the cap in Dynasty every season. If the NHL cap plus $20m formula stays constant, it's buying power goes down as player cap hits increase...ie, a $10m player cap hit becomes an increasing larger percentage of the overall cap.

Option one maintains the current structure, but at the NHL cap and NHL salaries goe up things will get progressively tighter in Dynasty.

A 25% addition to the NHL cap is pretty much the what the cap buffer is this year, so it would maintain that buffer.

A 30% addition to the NHL cap would recover some of the lost buffer and be about the way things were last year as far as a buffer goes percentage wise.

A 35% addition would peg the buffer at an even greater level going forward.

Note: Roto has always been structured as NHL cap plus a percentage (20%?), and it seems to work well in roto. I set 25% rather than 20% as the minimum percentage to increase by in Dynasty because there's already been erosion of the cap buffer by being pegged at $20m. So I figured 25% was the right place to start so we can play catch up ... assuming people want to switch to indexing to a percentage rather than a flat $20m addition. If you don't want to make that change then the option is there to maintain the status quo.

I think we all voted for 35% previously and it was just never implemented. So that's my vote.

I like the struggle to stay cap compliant. It adds a level of strategy that just doesn't seem to be there if you never have to worry about the cap.

Classic (beginning 2018-19): 2018-19: 2nd Overall, Playoff Champion
Dynasty (beginning 2019-20): Hoping not to be last

Dave will have to comment on that. My only comment is that while that vote obviously slipped thru the cracks we have a different set of GMs now.

No big deal. We all missed it and it happens. My thoughts then and now are when we started the vote was 35% because the $20 million addition in salary on a $60 million cap was 35%. So my vote is we keep it that way.

I have always liked dynasty as a low maintenance league where you can make pure hockey trades around players and picks. Not trades where you are trying to get under the cap.

While I do enjoy some of the pressure staying cap compliant, I agree that the +$20m will not really be feasible with all the rising salaries. I'd prefer as much cap space as possible.

Is there a decision on this? Are we changing the cap structure this season?

Nothing changes this season. It would be for next year and beyond.
