ECHL not enough prospects

I haven't seen this exact problem (similar problems, yes, but not the exact same) addressed in the forum, so I'm starting a new thread. Here's my situation:

GM of the Atlanta Gladiators (ECHL — parent teams are Providence and Boston). Whenever the parent clubs send me players, the AI automatically refashions the 20-man roster to make sure all of the players under contract to Providence and Boston are present and guys under contract to Atlanta get bumped into the semi-pro league. Fair enough.

But I have to have at least 14 guys under 26 years old or I can't continue the game. And I am now at a point where Providence and the Bruins have dumped a lot of unwanted veterans on me, and I can't fix the situation by jiggering the guys who are under contract to Atlanta. Thanks to the parent clubs, I have too many old guys on the roster and there's nothing obvious that I can do about it.

Any solutions?

Yeah, it's a flaw in the farm-parent AI that gets exacerbated in situations (like the ECHL) where there are multiple parent teams. The AI has no trouble understanding negative roster limitation like "you can only have X number of foreign players", but positive ones like "you must have at least Y players younger than 26" are more of a challenge, and when you mix in two parent teams both sending a human-run team players, it's possible to get stuck in a situation like this.

The simplest solution, if you're playing with commissioner mode turned on, is to edit some of the veterans you've been sent to free agency, clearing room for your young players. If you've got challenge mode on and can't do that, if you upload the file I can fix it for you.
