@devlman - Unfortunately you do not have a 20th round to trade to @NQDevil
Your lowest pick is a 19th rounder  (254).  This has been used in lieu of your phantom 20th round pick previously traded.

I assumed the intention was to trade your lowest pick.   If this was not the case and you want the trade voided, please say so asap!

I wasn’t trying to make any trade...

Happy to confirm! Bit of a risk, but if he bounces back it'll look a good deal. Plus who wants to be in a goalie run anyway.

Damn with Big Buff possibly retiring that Jets D looks to be in even worse shape.

More saves then!

Yeah unfortunately Buff hasn't helped there. Niku for Norris?

Still hopeful for Jets chances. Hopefully Trouba was a big distraction last year.

RFA Keeper
We will be allowing a 4th keeper starting NEXT year.    However, this will be for player who has played no more than 100 games (100 games played = RFA eligible keeper, 101 games = RFA ineligible).   Standard keeping rules apply; so the player would need to have been drafted in the 6th round or later.   This keeper, just as all others, is completely optional and will be at the cost of your last available draft pick.    So you can still trade your 20th round pick and later decide to keep a 4th player if you desire.

Rule Highlight

I just want to highlight this change for 2020-21 keepers as it will impact the 2019-20 draft and roster management.   

This 4th keeper slot is a rookie slot.    Let's use last year as an example and say you drafted defenseman Rasmus Dahlin in the 6th round.  He had a fantastic rookie year, putting up 44 pts in 82 games...   but do you keep him?  If you had a decent season like Hard Dump did, probably not...  unless you want to forfeit a better player now with hopes he makes the next step.

With the rookie keeper you get that second look; provided you drafted him round 6 or later and he has 100 games or less experience.   This will put an additional premium on rookies and players who only played a handful of games the year prior (like those who were sent to juniors after their 10 game look).

So this RFA keeper , essentially it will have to change each year?

Yes; it allows you to keep a younger talent on the cheap for an extra season...  before having to push a veteran off your 'UFA' keeper list (our standard 3 keeper list) the following year. 
It's designed to be transitional and not just having 4 permanent keepers. 

Looking back to 2015,  McDavid wouldn't have been eligible as an RFA since he was drafted in the 3rd round of the 2015 fantasy draft, whereas  Eichel would have been eligible to be kept as an RFA since he was drafted in the 6th round.

It also will give you another thing to do pre-draft; as for example, this season I have NO ONE that has played less than 100 games on my roster.   I could go out on the trade market and try acquire one if I desire to the mutual benefit of myself and my trading partner.

Can we do this RFA keeper thing now? I’ve been roster managing like this for 2 years already and have good options for that

I put together this list, it was a very manual thing as Yahoo didnt make it easy.   I basically just used Career Stats - Split   night games...  and then looked at the close ones.
I believe this is the full list, and yes... it's very clear why you would want this implemented immediately as you have plenty of assets to trade, while the rest of the league is quite barren comparably.

I feel it's best to start on an even playing ground here, where everyone knows going into the season that rookies can be kept an extra year if they were drafted in the 6th round or later.

While I certainly wouldn't mind the opportunity to keep Heiskanen in that 4th slot - I agree it makes sense to start it next offseason so people can prepare to do so during this season.
