Last 2 seasons were great but this wil be a tough one.
Will be playing with some of my prospects who are good but won't be able to compete against teams with a number of players that could be their fathers.

I know we're only two games in right now but it looks to be a really tight battle this season from top to Bottom in the GHL!

It's possible now. :)

 

In the recent update, goalies have a higher likelihood for injuries, whereas before the likelihood was zero.

Playing in the GHL is painful to watch. While my team in General is playing ok we find new ways to lose every day! Today my 'Gentle' (yeah, the guy who is afraid to see anyone hurt) spirited Forward, Vachon, decided to knee someone and was called for an obvious Major Kneeing Penalty. Off he goes to spend 5 minutes in the box. This is our only penalty the entire game and it's most likely due to the rage that came spewing from the coach after seeing three goals scored during that one penalty. Slap another standard goal on a few minutes later and my best goalie gets pulled for the night - end of the 1st period: 0-4.

Oddly enough the next two periods go great and my struggling Goalie now gets a 100% on his saves and we actually score a point - marvelous loss boys, just marvelous!

Later that day Slaughterville fired their Assistant after his report stated that our team's PK and PP played well against the opponent. Couldn't be that our PP went 0-3 and our PK unit went 3-1, right?

I think development in general has been slowed so I'm not sure I'd start dealing your prospects immediately unless they haven't been developing over the last few seasons.

Ya.....I've got guy's that I've had for 3 seasons that are playing a lot in the minors but are only ranking 66....67.... the need to be at least 70 to crack the line up. had to use a 66 to replace an injured forward. these guy's gotta hit 72---73 if i'm ever gonna get out of IHL.

i think I have players that have hidden traits that include "volcano-like explosive rage" because some of my players that are classified as more docile are creating some of the most horrid penalties. Posted below is a prime example: Benjamin Genest is a pretty easy going Defender that 'hates dirty hits' but I think he must store his anger deep below the surface and when it erupts creates massacres on the ice. I like this trait!

Just a question:
How long in advance do you look for next year/free agency/draft?
I'd say abouy 1/3rd into the season, i'm usually ready/set for the next year.

I used to track at about the halfway mark but I've found that to be a log of unnecessary work - plus at the final prospect rankings a lot of things change. You can also see every interested prospects seasonal growth and have a better idea as to what your team may need after seeing your team play all 60+ matches. That's me though...
