It would be nice to have the Computer GMs actually offer something in a trade that matches your transfer needs. For instance: I only have prospects up as my trade needs but I keep getting offers for really old guys that have bad contracts and are declining faster than a plane in a nose dive. I’m asking for prospects to circumvent some cap issues but am getting offers that put me in the red further. This also makes those offers pointless.
Veterans often times carry some benefit (at least I feel they do). While I don’t have many on my young, lower tier teams, I tried to have vets on my squad here and there. Anyone know for sure if vets do add an experience level?
Figured it would be comical tracking down how many injuries happen in the Seasons...only tracking Major Team happenings, not minors.

Back to the drawing boards on this subject. I have not changed my tactics at all since the beginning of the season (for both Buzzer and Cage) but Buzzer’s Team Confidence seems to be going down in flames now.
My 3rd place Cage Team is going Good in the Confidence department but my 2nd place Buzzer, IHL team has been strggling with confidence for the last few weeks. Ironically enough, my team has been utterly destroyed by injuries of late and I put at least one-two players on the IR a week. This week I once more have 2 on the IR along with my top defensemen going down for the rest of the season - would this impact my team’s confidence?
Last point - the 1st place Team in my conference, in Buzzer, has Great confidence - what separates 1st at Great confidence, 2nd at Uncertain, and 3rd at Crisis?
Look good to me as well, not too many of those colour schemes around. Why North Haven?
I guess a nod to Jon Snow / The Starks - during this process I changed the Black Flag to the Blackbirds (crow) but there were no real good looking crow mascots so I opted to keep the Black Flag. The Wolf is also associated with that but I would have loved to have named the team the Ghosts or Dire Wolves but Arctic Wolves is close enough
As a side note: Articwolves is misspelled and should be two words: Arctic Wolves ...good thing we survive with brawn, not brains up in the north - ha!
“Welcome to Hockey Night here on channel 684, in Blakely. I’m your Host Billy-Bob Bobbs with co-anchor Tina Bertha. We have some breaking news coming from the Black Flag’s stadium “Pandamanium” - It looks like this season is starting out with a pre-season delay due to a beer shortage!”
“This is a tragic scene Bobbs. Concessions stands are being raided and at least 5 servers walking the stairs have already died due to head trauma from ‘accidental falls’.”
“It sure is Bertha, how are we supposed to watch a game without some ale?!”
“Firefighters are on the scene fighting the blazes on the south end but we have seen some semis from Beerfilder heading North on I-75 towards the stadium.”
“Hopefully we can get this delay worked out as there is only 1 ref still alive and we would love to see a game sometime tonight!”
“You betcha Tina - let’s get those taps open! Have a great night everyone and remember, ‘when you need hockey news we’re the only ones in the 600s that’s still broadcasting at 3AM!’ Go get em Black Flag!”
I have two players that seem to have odd issues after the Season restart in Buzzer. Aulin, a goalie that was assigned but wanted a 1-way contract is stuck in the affiliate and every time I attempt to view his pag I get an error message. Stankeiwicz is a Defender that I offered a contract extension to (and was accepted) but it still shows up as 1+2 on his Transfer Tab. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
What a frustrating way to end both Buzzer and Cage seasons. Both teams got to the finals and then wigged out and lost their minds. Even more irritating is that 90% of the Buzzer season we were ranked #2 until injuries and Goalie meltdowns occurred. C'est la vie - contracts are lookin even better this next season, for both teams, and we should be even more established going into next season.
