    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.

    I agree - we're at a point where a more complex search function that includes a number of different parameters (i.e. Salary, Contract Years, full statistics instead of just Top 20) is a must. Or at least a full data table with the ability to sort by these columns. It's extra work, but if we are vocal about it, will get done. @Steve, perhaps do a feature request post for Anders?

    AlexanderRasputin reacted to Paul T in GHL playoff matchups   
    Wow, so the regular season series between all the current match-ups was 2-2.  These quarterfinals should be very close.  I agree that the Dragons and Red Tide are the two best teams in the East - and will be for quite some time.  They are starting to get a little rivalry going, which is great.  The Prairie Stars and Hawks have been the two best teams out West and I don't see that changing any time soon either.  But we all know that anything can happen in the playoffs, which is what keeps it exciting. 
    And rainsilent - great season for you despite the early playoff exit.  I was impressed with what you were able to accomplish with a team without much super star power.  Taking nothing away from the Nightmares as Tyrod always puts together a solid team (think they are much better than 8th place btw), but the OT and double SO losses were a rough way to end it - and I still think the fact that we can't edit our SO lineup makes it frustrating at times.  On paper this was more like a 3/6 or 4/5 match-up.
    Good luck to all remaining.

    Goaltending is a problem on both sides. Beaudoin has a piss-poor track record past the 1st round and needs to step up.

    Whichever goalie blinks first in this series, will lose.

    Yeah, that’s always been inconsistent. I don’t think new managers should be able to take over GHL teams as a rule, but I have seen it happen.
     
    Give it a shot and if no luck, email support and ask what is up. This is a good team available and deserves an active manager.

    Round two: No regular season stats anymore because it is the second round of the playoffs.
     
    #2 Red Tide vs #3 Dragons
    Regular season series: 1W and 1OTW Red Tide, 2W Dragons.
     
    The two best teams in the East face off. It was a close series in the regular season and it will likely be close in the playoffs so long as the goaltending for the Dragons holds up. If it doesn't this is very likely to be a short series.
     
    #4 Battlin Bears vs #8 Nightmares
    Regular season series: 2SOW Battlin Bears, 2W Nightmares.
     
    The two wins by the Nightmare were the last two meetings between these two teams and the games weren't close. I still think this is going to be a close series though however the Battlin Bears are the underdogs in my mind as I think the Nightmares have the better team.
     
    #1 Prairie Stars vs #5 Wolverines
    Regular season series: 2W Prairie Stars, 2W Wolverines
     
    The regular season series between the two was a split and the entire series was actually close. The Wolverines has the offense to keep pace if it becomes a scoring race. The real question is if the Prairie Stars can take control of the games with their more complete team.
     
    #2 Hawks vs #6 Tomahawks
    Regular season series: 2W Hawks, 2W Tomahawks
     
    Another series that was split however the series was rather lopsided with a win for each team that wasn't close at all. The Tomahawks were a great 5 on 5 scoring team while the Hawks struggled to score 5 on 5. I think this is going to be another close series determined by whatever team happens to play better 5 on 5.

    Damn.  I stated that I was determined to win this in Season 3, but came up short.  Although I just realized that 2 of my players were #1 and 2 in Hits this season which makes me proud.  But I am still determined to win this one at some point.

    AlexanderRasputin reacted to Paul T in GHL playoff matchups   
    I haven't followed the West that much this season, but agree that Ricochet vs. Wolverines is probably the most exciting first round match-up.  Also, Rage is always my sleeper pick to turn it on in the playoffs.  Their coach is a lunatic and the players are downright scared to fail.
    In the East, the Nightmares and Bulldogs are solid teams, but the Minutemen and Red Tide are firing on all cylinders.  Bears vs. Duhawks should be the most even series.  For some reason I have always confused these two teams, as far back as season 1, so it's funny they are matched up against each other. 
    And my series with Peek's Dragons seems like a very even match-up on paper.  I like my team, but have come to realize we have some major holes to fix.  For starters, my goalie is already tired.  Jesus.  People talk about goalies blowing games for their respective teams this season, but I'd be willing to bet Amick has blow more games than every other goalie this season... games that the performance ratings and game stats suggest we otherwise would have won.  So my options are a tired/exhausted goalie... an anxious goalie... or a 79-rated affiliate goalie.  Again, I really like my team, but the past two seasons we've had the #2 seed and have won a combined 2 games, getting bounced by lower seeds.  This is also the 3rd straight season where we have been on a cold streak heading into the playoffs.  Would I be surprised if I win... maybe not.  But until the Stealheads prove they can win a playoff series, I don't have much confidence in them.  My only shot is if the Dragons goalies under-perform.
    Either way, thanks for pulling this together, Rain.  Good luck to everyone!

    East:
    #1 Cedar Rapids Minutemen vs #8 Netherhill Nightmares.
    45-7-2-26 151pts / 32-10-10-28 126pts
    Regular season stats: Minutemen / Nightmare
    Goals for: 255 (4th) / 237 (13th)
    Goals against: 191 (3rd) / 220 (12th)

    CA: 1151 (3rd) / 1321 (13th)
    Corsi %: 52% (8th) / 50.4% (14th)
    Season match up: 3 wins Minutemen, 1 OT win Nightmare.
     
    Statistically this was a close match up during the regular season with only one game being decided by more than one goal. As a result, I expect this match up to be a lot closer than the statistics may otherwise say. The Nightmare are a solid overall team that aren't to be discounted due to their 8th seed. Combine that with the fact that the Minutemen played well above expectations for the season (especially with a shooting% and PDO so abnormally high when CF is taken into account) and I would give this match up a serious consideration for upset alert.
     
    #2 Slaughterville Red Tide vs #7 Lake Valley Bulldogs
    46-4-3-27 149pts / 35-10-4-31 129pts
    Regular season stats: Red Tide / Bulldogs
    Goals for: 266 (2nd) / 255 (5th)
    Goals against: 200 (6th) / 245 (21st)
    PP: 19.8% (16th) / 22.8% (5th)
    PK: 79.1% (16th) / 81.1% (12th)
    Shooting %: 9.2% (4th) / 9.7% (2nd)
    Save %: 93.2% (1st) / 91.2% (24th)
    PDO: 1.024 (2nd) / 1.008 (10th)
    CF: 1535 (1st) / 1302 (19th)
    CA: 1202 (7th) / 1420 (21st)
    Corsi %: 56.1% (2nd) / 47.8% (21st)
    Season match up: 3 wins Red Tide, 1 win Bulldogs.
     
    The season series was notably in favor of the Red Tide as one game was on the verge of a blowout while another was an out right blowout. The Bulldogs are going to have to find a way to improve their 5 on 5 play defensively or this could be a short series. The middle of the pack special teams for the Red Tide could potentially keep the Bulldogs in the series and appears to be the most likely reason for the series to drag on.
     
    #3 Sheshegwaning Dragons vs #6 Big Delta Stealheads
    44-3-11-22 149pts / 36-7-7-30 129pts
    Regular season stats: Dragons / Stealheads
    Goals for: 263 (3rd) / 239 (12th)
    Goals against: 205 (8th) / 199 (5th)
    PP: 24.9% (2nd) / 16.6% (22nd)
    PK: 86.3% (2nd) / 83.9% (6th)
    Shooting %: 8.9% (7th) / 8.8% (8th)
    Save %: 92.4% (9th) / 92.3% (10th)
    PDO: 1.013 (4th) / 1.012 (5th)
    CF: 1466 (3rd) / 1313 (18th)
    CA: 1261 (9th) / 1098 (2nd)
    Corsi %: 53.8% (4th) / 54.5% (3rd)
    Season match up: 1 win Dragons, 3 wins Stealheads.
     
    This matchup is my official upset alert for the East. Outside of the poor powerplay of the Stealheads these two teams are statistically near mirror images. The question is if the current goaltending for the Dragons can hold up to the quite potent offense of the Stealheads? The Dragons shipped out the goalie they had as their starter for most of the season. This is going to be either a lopsided series due to poor goaltending or one heck of a close series.
     
    #4 Sault Ste Marie Battlin Bears vs #5 Mango Duhawks
    43-4-3-30 140pts / 37-7-6-30 131pts
    Regular season stats: Battlin Bears / Duhawks
    Goals for: 232 (14th) / 226 (16th)
    Goals against: 209 (9th) / 216 (11th)
    PP: 19.1% (18th) / 19.8% (17th)
    PK: 85.9% (4th) / 77.1% (23rd)
    Shooting %: 7.9% (16th) / 8.1% (13th)
    Save %: 91.8% (16th) / 92.1% (15th)
    PDO: .997 (17th) / 1.002 (13th)
    CF: 1388 (9th) / 1382 (10th)
    CA: 1293 (10th) / 1323 (14th)
    Corsi %: 51.8% (9th) / 51.1% (10th)
    Season match up: 2 wins Battlin Bears, 2 wins Duhawks.
     
    This is very likely to be a close series. The regular season games were. Based upon the regular season stats I think it is most likely to be decided by the PK of each team. The Battlin Bears had one of the best. The Duhawks had one of the worst. In every other way these teams are very close statistically. It could be a short series due to the PK difference but the Battlin Bears PP is too iffy for me to fully buy into the poor PK of the Duhawks as being as significant a drawback as it likely should be.
     
    West
    #1 Kegashka Prairie Stars vs #8 Eastern Outlaws.
    47-11-2-20 165pts / 34-7-7-32 123pts
    Regular season stats: Prairie Stars / Outlaws
    Goals for: 246 (10th) / 214 (18th)
    Goals against: 164 (1st) / 204 (7th)
    PP: 22.3% (7th) / 18.5% (19th)
    PK: 82.6% (8th) / 77.8% (20th)
    Shooting %: 8% (15th) / 7.7% (19th)
    Save %: 93% (3rd) / 93.1% (2nd)
    PDO: 1.010 (7th) / 1.009 (9th)
    CF: 1403 (6th) / 1344 (13th)
    CA: 1223 (8th) / 1181 (5th)
    Corsi %: 53.4% (5th) / 53.2% (6th)
    Season match up: 2 wins and 1 SO win Prairie Stars, 1 wins Outlaws.
     
    The Outlaws are a solid team with very good goaltending and team play. Everything else about them is below average. On the other side is the Prairie Stars with the best record in the league but rather underwhelming stats for a team that more or less ran away with the best record by 14 points. Almost everything about them is good but only the 5 on 5 goals against is truly great. I would have expected more statistically with such a record. In terms of the match up the big question is can the Outlaws score and can their special teams be better than it was in the regular season? Against the Prairie Stars it is going to be tough as their two wins were big ones over the Outlaws.
     
    #2 West Chicago Hawks vs #7 Scandinavia Steelers
    42-7-8-23 148pts / 35-9-5-31 128pts
    Regular season stats: Hawks / Steelers
    Goals for: 249 (8th) / 200 (25th)
    Goals against: 183 (2nd) / 194 (4th)
    PP: 24.1% (3rd) / 20.2% (15th)
    PK: 82.5% (9th) / 87.2% (1st)
    Shooting %: 7.6% (20th) / 7.4% (22nd)
    Save %: 92.5% (6th) / 92.5% (7th)
    PDO: 1.001 (14th) / .999 (16th)
    CF: 1448 (5th) / 1184 (25th)
    CA: 1389 (16th) / 1160 (4th)
    Corsi %: 51% (11th) / 50.5% (13th)
    Season match up: 4 wins Hawks.
     
    The Steelers are a bit of a mystery to me. They have a very good group of forwards but the team struggles mightily offensively. They didn't do well against the Hawks in the regular season because of it losing all four games. On the same token the Hawks offense under performed as well 5 on 5 with a very poor shooting percentage themselves. This could be a series dragged on by the stingy defense of the Steelers facing off against the lackluster 5 on 5 offense of the Hawks but the Steelers have to find a way to score to do it. This series is going to come down to if the Steelers can find some offense or not.
     
    #3 Enigma Rage vs #6 Vauban Tomahawks
    42-5-5-28 141pts / 36-9-6-29 132pts
    Regular season stats: Rage / Tomahawks
    Goals for: 248 (9th) / 253 (6th)
    Goals against: 230 (15th) / 222 (13th)
    PP: 22.9% (4th) / 17.7% (21st)
    PK: 83.3% (7th) / 81.8% (11th)
    Shooting %: 8.8% (9th) / 9.5% (3rd)
    Save %: 92.1% (14th) / 92.3% (11th)
    PDO: 1.009 (8th) / 1.018 (3rd)
    CF: 1354 (12th) / 1319 (16th)
    CA: 1198 (5th) / 1313 (11th)
    Corsi %: 53.1% (7th) / 50.1% (15th)
    Season match up: 1 win Rage, 2 wins and 1 SO win Tomahawks
     
    This series is my upset alert for the West. The Rage are a very good statistical team overall. Its one statistical blemish is its 5 on 5 goals against. The Tomahawks are a good team themsleves with one very good strength. 5 on 5 goals for. It is the biggest weakness of one team against the biggest strength of the other team. This has the potential to be a very close series that could also go heavily one way or the other. If the Tomahawks can continue their 5 on 5 excellence it will be trouble for Rage. The Rage have the special teams to otherwise win the series if not keep the games close.

    Corsi %: 49.1% (17th) / 48.9% (18th)
    Season match up: 3 wins Ricochet, 1 win Wolverines
     
    This is the series that I am most looking forward to. It has the greatest potential for some wild games. Each of the four games in the regular season was. For one team you can forget about defense. It doesn't exist. Its not a thing. The other team is a team that plays a high tempo style of play given the lot of shots for and against 5 on 5. I'm excited for this series simply because it is very likely going to be a lot of speed, shots and general back and forth, high tempo action. Who is going to win? Who cares? It is going to very likely be one heck of a show.

    There are very clearly teams who slow down before the playoffs and teams who get hot at the right time, just like in real life. As usual, the why is a mystery)). Good luck, Paul.
