WHL Overage Player Issues

I'm playing a WHL team and just started my 2nd season. I have no 20 yr olds on the active roster. But when I try to move a 20 yr old from my protected list, it tells me I have too many overagers on my active roster.

When I list my active roster and my protected players list, neither show (OA) for any players on my team.

It all seemed to work for my first year.

I played through the second year with no overages and now it seems to work fine.

Which team was it? I'd like to see if I can replicate that.

The team is the Edmonton Oil Kings.

I did trade my OAs at the first trade deadline, if that makes any difference.

It shouldn't. Were there any 20-year-olds who you still owned the WHL rights to but who were under NHL contracts and had moved up to the NHL/AHL/ECHL? You may need to release the rights to those guys to clear the OA spots.

Yes I did have some 20 yr olds in the NHL.

But it happened again starting my 4th season. It appears that if there are more than 3 20 / turning 20 yr olds on the protected list, you can't sign any that are free agents or bring up any that were sent down to the minors (by accident...). (At least that's how I remember it, I'll try to keep notes next time.)

I had 4 OAs on the protected list (2 in the WHL, 1 in the minors, 1 unsigned). Once I traded one of the signed OAs and had only 3, I was able to move 1 from minors and sign the other.

One other thing: the only way to trade, using "shop a player", an OA who isn't signed is to sign to a contract and then trade. If I already have 3 signed OAs signed, I can't shop any of the others without trading / buying out one of the already signed ones.

Yeah, that's as it should be, then - you can't add overage players to the roster if you're at (or above) the limit on the protected list; you have to get under 3 there first. The real rules are a little more complicated than that, but doing it this way prevents situations that'd break the AI roster management and avoids unrealistic exploits where you could stockpile overager rights where the real teams would have to let those guys go.

I'll have a look at the trading thing, though; that situation shouldn't block the shop player option, unless there was some further complication like the player being on an NHL contract.
