Nice work Bolts.

It would have to contrast all together by position like you have here. There would also be a mean of deductions based on OA/PPG due to the frequencies of injuries so guys who are 89 OA and miss 30 games and only produce 30-40 PTS shouldn't be punished based on the standard. So for example, players in this system 89>86 OAs are subject to these downgrades due to positional PPG standard. This way downgrades are purely based on GMs strategy to utilize their contracts properly. There can't be any one individual at fault when we have a foundational system that wont change. Numbers do not lie so there cannot be hard feelings towards downgrades.

Ultimately I don't believe FWD/D should be downgraded until the ages of 26+. Goalies should not be downgraded until age of 28. *[unless they have extremely poor seasons based on the G system chart.]*

FORWARDS:

The means of PPG production could look like this. [SUBJECT TO EVERY PLAYER TYPE. SNP/TWF/PLY/GRN/PWF]

Wherever the median begins, it subracts in increments of 10PTS/-1OA

FOWARD STANDARD SUGGESTIONS

91+ OA gets 70+ PTS/82GP standard

90>88 OA gets 60+ PTS/82GP standard

87>86 OA gets 50+ PTS/82 GP standard

85>84 OA gets 40+ PTS/82 GP standard

83>81 OA gets 30+ PTS/82 GP standard

So for example of category 90>88 OA where the standard is set at 60+ PTS/82 GP:

90>88 OA gets 60+ PTS/82 GP = 0.732+ PPG [-0 OA]

90>88 OA gets 60>50 PTS/82 GP = 0.731>0.610 PPG [-1 OA]

90>88 OA gets 50>40 PTS/82 GP = 0.609>0.500 PPG [-2 OA]

90>88 OA gets 40>30 PTS/82 GP = 0.499>0.366 PPG [-3 OA]

90>88 OA gets 30>0 PTS/82 GP = 0.365>0 PPG [-4 OA]

DEFENSEMEN:

Would roughly mirror FWDs system except, OFD would be expected to perform at a higher PPG standard than TWD. Also, DFD should perform at a higher +/- capacity than OFD/TWD. I would highly recommend we base DFD downgrades on +/- even though there is the argument that category doesn't attest to much. IMO a decent +/- rating should be essential for any DFD who is trying to stop pucks from entering the net instead of focusing on potting 20 + PTS in a season, while adding a little more value to the common DFD.

**OFD STANDARD SUGGESTIONS**

91+ OA gets 60+ PTS/82GP standard

90>88 OA gets 50+ PTS/82GP standard

87>86 OA gets 40+ PTS/82 GP standard

85>84 OA gets 30+ PTS/82 GP standard

83>81 OA gets 20+ PTS/82 GP standard

**TWD STANDARD SUGGESTIONS**

91+ OA gets 50+ PTS/82GP standard

90>88 OA gets 40+ PTS/82GP standard

87>86 OA gets 30+ PTS/82 GP standard

85>84 OA gets 20+ PTS/82 GP standard

83>81 OA gets 10+ PTS/82 GP standard

**DFD STANDARD SUGGESTIONS**

~~AT LEAST 30 GP~~

91+ OA gets [+/-] +12 standard

90>88 OA gets [+/-] +10 standard

87>86 OA gets [+/-] +8 standard

85>84 OA gets[+/-] +6 standard

83>81 OA gets [+/-] +4 standard

A downgrade example of a 90>88 OA OFD performing at lower standards than his OA suggests:

90>88 OA gets 50 + PTS/82GP = 0.610PPG+ [- 0 OA]

90>88 OA gets 49>40 PTS/82 GP = 0.609>0.488PPG [-1 OA]

90>88 OA gets 39>30 PTS/82 GP = 0.487>0.366PPG [-2 OA]

90>88 OA gets 29>20 PTS/82 GP = 0.365>0.244PPG {-3 OA]

90>88 OA gets 19>0 PTS/82 GP = 0.243>0PPG [-4 OA]

A downgrade example of a 90>88 OA DFD performing at lower standards than his OA suggests:

90>88 OA gets [+/-] +12 = [-0 OA]

90>88 OA gets [+/-] -5 = [-1 OA]

90>88 OA gets [+/-] -10 = [-2 OA]

90>88 OA gets [+/-] -20 = [-3 OA]

90>88 OA gets [+/-] -40 = [-4 OA]

GOALIES

Goalies don't need to be based on GP as their GAA and SV% reflects that. However, we would contrast the two values with OA to standardize expectations for goalies in the different OAs categories of 91 OA+/90>88 OA/87>85 OA/84>82 OA/81>0 OA. So 91 OA + Goalies would be subject to meet a standard of 0.925SV% + and 2.25>0 GAA and so forth, to avoid being downgraded. Each declining OA category would be subject to a lower standard than the prior one, while basing downgrades on the competitive standards. This would ensure goalies who are performing at their standard or higher, will stay at their OA. It also ensures that a goalies w/91 OA who puts up a standard of a 87>85 OA will be downgraded in reflection of that.

STANDARD SUGGESTIONS FOR GOALIES

91 OA+ gets 2.15 GAA/0.920 SV% standard

90>88 OA gets 2.35 GAA/0.915 SV% standard

87>85 OA gets 2.55 GAA/0.910 SV% standard

84>82 OA gets 2.75 GAA/0.905 SV% standard

81>0 OA gets 2.95 GAA/0.900 SV% standard

A downgrade example of a 91+ goalie performing at lower standards than his OA suggests:

91+OA gets 2.15 GAA/0.920 SV% = [-0 OA]

91+OA gets 2.35 GAA/0.915 SV% = [-1 OA]

91+OA gets 2.55 GAA/0.910 SV% = [-2 OA]

91+OA gets 2.75 GAA/0.905 SV% = [-3 OA]

91+OA gets 2.95 GAA/0.900 SV% = [-4 OA]
