You can carry over ONE re-sign token to the following season. You can also combine them to re-sign one of your players to a 4 year deal.
All token re-signs are based on player OV.

Each team must dress 20 players for every game (18 skaters and 2 goalies)
The standard line-ups are: 12F/6D with all forwards assigned to one of four even strength lines and 2 defenceman double-shifting on the 4th even strength line.
You can also use 11F/7D and 10F/8D provided any double shifted players have their second shift on the 4th line only.
During the playoffs - teams are allowed to have ONE dressed player that can be totally benched or a PP/PK specialist only. In other words, you can double-shift a forward on the 4th line without having to dress and assign a 7th defenceman.
