    Sign-ups
    - Each player in kiekko will have the opportunity to sign up for the next season before the draft
    - GMs will collectively eliminate any player they do not feel is suitable for the league
    - You can not sign someone else up
    - Further rules will be posted in the sign up thread and need to be followed

    Draft
    - The team that finishes last in the previous season, will be given the 1st pick, the second to last team is given the 2nd pick, and so on
    - The draft will consist of 8 rounds, and those not drafted will become free Agents
    - Once a player has been drafted by a team, he is to remain with the team until he is released or traded (Failing to stay on a team will result in you being Suspended until further notice)

    Free Agents/Transactions
    - Any team can release any player if they chose to but must post this in the free agent thread
    - Any team can sign a free agent
    - both the player and gm of the team has to agree on the signing in the free agent signing thread
    - Once a player has been signed by a team, he is to remain with the team until he is released or traded
    - GMs will be allowed to trade away draft picks, although it is not recommended
    - A trade deadline will occur at the end of week 4, no further trades or signings may take place in playoffs
    - The GMs will stick together when it comes to players, if a GM is having problems with a player and their attitude, the player shouldn’t expect to be moved to another team
    - Players who attempt to force their way off teams by threats and quitting because of immature dissatification with their team may be banned from JKL.

    Teams
    - The team names must be appropriate, including logos and arenas.
    - The amount of players on a team will be 9 maximum, there must be at least 6 players on the roster.
    - It is up to the GM on how he decides to run the team but should make his players aware of league rules
