    Although, Thomas was a bit of an a-hole about the whole White House visit, but maybe he was just ahead of his time! I've never understood the visit to the WH for sports champions anyways, pretty dumb in my opinion.
  2. Just like NHL, I'd love to see ties and/or no shootouts be brought back!

    He looked perfect last night against the Flyers. The Flyers played far better than Boston for at least 40 mins of that game and Carter Hart had a damn near perfect game, but Rask was perfect and that is why Boston won.

    Guess he didn't learn anything from Tim Thomas.

    I'm fine with the luck and chance part of the game, usually. I mean, if the "better" team won every time, then why play the season, just give the trophy to the team that looks best on paper. BUT, I do wish there was a little more insight into the streaks, both teams and players. Yes, I know it must be built into the sim to recreate real teams ups and downs during a season, but sometimes that ride down seems to go on forever and nothing can stop it. Knowing what those brakes are could be nice. I've found that teams get stale, winning or losing, and some minor changes are enough to bring the team back to .500.
  6. I'll take an inconsistent C, F or D-man over an inconsistent G any day of the week! So frustrating.

    I'd love a targeting option. For instance, we already have Left Wing Lock, why not have a target for certain player, etc. I also wish we could differentiate between lines the tactic they use. Some I want to be assholes, others I want to only take a punch and walk away. Having everyone on the team with the same tactic takes away the point of having different lines. But realize I am nitpicking at this point! But there are teams where all I really care about is hurting them as much as possible no matter the final score, haha. Just give us THAT option and I'll be happy!
  9. Glad to see my couple moves have really moved me up in the rankings from last season. BUT man, look at those SG numbers in the West! I have one of the worst at 87ovr!?!? Can I petition Anders to move to the East?
  10. Yeah, with the relaunch, we actually LOST some search ability in the data. Ok, we got advanced stats, but whatev, I'd still prefer the old search of outgoing contracts. For a game that prides itself on scouting, it seems like it tries to make it extra hard. If you could download a game world of players which likely already exists in some sort of database in the raw data that the game engine is pulling from (but I am far from a software developer), you could include all players, including AAHL and the other non-playable leagues pretty straight forward.
  11. I think Wolverines pull the upset against the Stars having played both teams so often. And Hawks look like they are getting back towards their Biscuit style domination!?! Not good news for any of us! But I can root for them for at least one playoff run this year, ha! I think it will be Dragons vs Nightmares (rematch?) in the East. Both teams gave me lots of problems this year and I think if they don't have any individual breakdowns, both teams can win 3 of 5 against their opponents.
  12. I'd still like to see most overpaid (Salary/Pts) and Best Bargain (Salary/Goals). Wish there was a way to export ALL the league data with one dump instead of 28 different screens (really 56 since stats and salary are on different tabs).
  13. Just going to leave this here.... The Elite are the first GHL team to win TWO Relegation Playoff matchups! HA!
  14. In theory. I think some have tried and even managed to be somewhat successful with this, but like a lot of things in the game, the theory doesn't always play out. I think some tactics (offense, defense, and even focus) inherently are "better" in the game engine and lead to better results even if other tactics are countered accordingly. Obviously, this is all anecdotal based on my experiences and possibly completely false, but if you look at the teams (not managers) that win over the past years (not just seasons), there is definitely a pattern for those that do well over many seasons.
