  1. Oh great, I dropped again!
  2. What about a 21 year old that hasn't played in GHL yet? That seems like a rookie to me. I wouldn't necessarily count say a 25 year old from RUHL. OR instead/plus a Rookie of the Year, have a Young Gun award for best player on entry level contract? Just some suggestions, sadly I don't think I will have time to do the research for any awards, so I will be happy with whatever that person determines. It'd also be cool to start some 'award talk' about half way through the season (or sooner!) just to generate buzz and draw attention to players and story lines, etc. Maybe it'll draw in more than us usual 6-8 managers to talk.
  3. What defines a "rookie"? Are we going with simply someone with ZERO GHL games before? Just curious and like that as a new end of year category, but pity the person trying to determine it. Eldred Elite, as always, has very lofty goals this year! Listed in order of importance: 1. Win a playoff series, preferably against those bastards Prairie Stars/Regals! 2. Assuming last year is no fluke and my goalie Glandon is truly entering his prime, have him lead the league in Shutouts. He came close last year with 8. 3. Have S1 first round draft pick (#24) William Obeng prove he belongs to be a starter this season. He's getting a go as 3rd Line center to see if he can improve that line's role after a horrible S4. 4. Go deep into the playoffs as several players could be eyeing retirement homes after this season. If this team can't replicate last year's success, look for the rebuild to start early!
  4. There's always next season! ha! Cutter really is a beast and should probably get the playoff MVP if they win the Cup.

    These kids today with their need for instant gratification! :P

    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.
  7. 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.
  11. 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!
  14. 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?
  15. 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.
