#39960 Two Way F/C vs. Two Way D

Posted by ColoKrabatt on June 24, 2019 - 10:47 AM

I've noticed that when I play 4 forwards on a power play - even if the forward has 90-99 defensive ability - that I give up more SHGs.  Just wondering if there is an out of position penalty.


There for sure is out of position penalty, but I still play 4 forwards on PPs. :D

#39496 Trait preference

Posted by ColoKrabatt on May 24, 2019 - 01:17 PM

Big games and/or ambitions. But as everything here it's just one piece in the puzzle... I'm also looking on ego, but lesser.  And of course I have lot of players which aren't heroic and ambitious, but are performing well enough for me.
Leadership as "care about the least", just cuz I already have great captains and too much leaders is too much problems. ;)
Edit: Ego can be both good and bad. And I don't mean red/green definition.  As You mentioned, sometimes You need cocky or arrogant brat for your squad.  It's really hard to exclude something from the scouting and evaluating process... I wiew player as whole bunch of numbers, pros and cons etc. I'm not truly focusing on some area while deciding.
Edit2: If You wouldn't have excluded dirty, I'd set that as "care about the least". One of my GENTLE players has soo much penalty minutes that he can't even count it. On the other hand, my two Dmen agitators have 284 pim together, so again I'm sure just about one thing - I know nothing.

#39495 Players matching tactic vs. Tactic familiarity

Posted by ColoKrabatt on May 24, 2019 - 01:04 PM

I'd go with familiar tactics, but I'm pretty sure the answer lays somewhere in between. Cuz even though they're unfamiliar with new tactic, if they fits naturaly to system their performance should/could grow on higher level... So both ways could work, but both could smack You down.
That said, I agree with Alex, it's uncertain. :) 

#39315 Prospect refused to sign

Posted by ColoKrabatt on May 03, 2019 - 03:42 PM

Happened several times to me... No big deal. Re-offer could help, but sometimes he won't accept. Last season, my prospect winger refused entry contract and went to Finland instead, I think he realized that he'd be stucked in AAHL... (btw, that's exactly where he's stucked now... :))

#36155 Release: Fall 2018 (Just to keep you posted!)

Posted by ColoKrabatt on July 25, 2018 - 11:17 PM


All I was and am saying is, again, that important decisions should be made taking into consideration the whole community




Important, nonimportant and basically all decision have been, are and will be only on Anders. (and probably Glawing too, I don't know how much exactly he's involved in decisions but I'm sure he knows about all Anders plans) It's his game, he's giving it to the whole community for free and he can do anything he wants. 
Focus group was created as testing crew for people who really care about the game (that's shown by financial support). Anders got concentrate and diverse sample of the community and used us to immediate feedback about his thoughts and plans. We have no participation on making any decisions and know about like 1% more information than You who aren't in this focus group.

#35769 Draft class presentation

Posted by ColoKrabatt on July 02, 2018 - 12:17 PM

Personally I think there should be a generalized overall. Then we need scouts in the game and the more time they scout certain players the more info you get. On my phone so not going to go full detail.... but think that would be a hell of a lot of fun



YES, YES, YES!!!!  :D

#34789 Departures of ready players

Posted by ColoKrabatt on May 21, 2018 - 06:52 AM

Completed players (maybe around 25-26) should want to play for the team, no matter of what tier (ideally in the league of their overall) but they should refuse to stay in affiliate (traits could be taken in consideration). There should be possibility that they could terminate contract after season and become free agents or go straight to Europe.
Not everybody but some movement is needed and it could work slightly like roster limit.

#34786 Inbox

Posted by ColoKrabatt on May 21, 2018 - 06:29 AM

Hi, I have a little suggestion about inbox. There could be sections and option to delete in bulk, for clearer arrangement.


I thought about at least three:


  • game results
  • injuries/recovery/contract dealing/waivering/scouting
  • personal messages


I think I'm not the onlyone who sometimes finds himself lost in the flood of messages... :huh:

#33985 Age of Managers?

Posted by ColoKrabatt on April 04, 2018 - 09:39 AM

@Matti0  I thought, from our conversations, that You're slightly older.  :)  Well we are equal, I'm 25 too.

#33979 NHL Awards. What are your Picks/Opinions?

Posted by ColoKrabatt on April 04, 2018 - 04:09 AM

I don't have total overview, I saw just a few games this year and mostly only highlights and interesting shots.
But when I saw MacKinnon I was overwhelmed! So my pick here is obvious.
Between goalies it's tight. I'd like to say Fleury cuz I'm cheering for Golden Knights since they were founded. :cool:  ;)  But it'll be Rinne for confidence and stability. 
About Dmen, I personaly would love to if Roman Pol├ík could win :D  but that's not gonna happen so my vote is for Hedman.

#32697 Hoarding Players

Posted by ColoKrabatt on February 13, 2018 - 02:30 PM

I, on the other hand, think limit of 40-45 players could be ideal. We still have two farm teams...

I'm rather standing for decrease of salary cap. Lower cap will force us to limit our squads on our own. So there will be two barriers (lower cap plus roster limit) which should prevent hoarding completly.
