    This would improve the free agency for sure! I will add this to the future backlog.
    It's coming real soon. The new scouting feature is actually finished and I'm making some additional bug fixes and improvements. Couldn't make the release as promised in January but expect this in the beginning of February.

    It would definitely make free agency less frustrating.  It also wouldn't be unrealistic as NHL teams or any team really can place offers to as many players as they want to, regardless of cap.
     
    The priority thing would also be nice, so that the players you don't care as much about don't take up that spot.

    Would it be possible to fix the way that contract offers is set up?  Currently, if I make an offer to a player and I only have 4 million in cap space, and I offer him 3 million, I only have 1 million to offer other players.  It will not let me make multiple 3 million dollar offers to players.  To improve this, I think it would be better to allow it so contract and trade offers don't affect future offers you make to players unless they have agreed to the deal.  In the current setup, I usually can only make a couple offers at a time since I'm a cap team, but if this setup was improved, I wouldn't miss out on other players when my first offers get declined.  Basically, there wouldn't be a cap on the number of contract offers you could make.  Instead, once a player accepts your offer, the other contract offers would get cancelled.
     
    Idk if this is easy to reprogram, but it would be a lot less frustrating since right now I can only make 1 offer and hope that he doesn't decline / I miss out on other options.

    If you're a whisky drinker and got some cash to spend I'd suggest Johnnie Walker Blue Label. Bowmore single malt is great, but also pricey. If you want something to enjoy more often, Famous Grouse is a good choice.
     
    From mixed drinks, I always choose Jack n' Coke. Better taste result than any rum I've ever tried with coke. I know rum n' coke is a thing, but I like my rum straight.
     
    From rums I like to go for the smoother ones, which means spiced mixes. Captain Morgan Spiced Gold and Negrita Golden Spice are both great ones to down while going through FA's during off season. 
     
    From whisky liquors Southern Comfort is the way to go. Sweet and easy.

    Definitely like those suggestions.  I've had Slivovice, and I definitely know the experience of having too much of it.  Been a while since I've had either though, so may have to hop back on that bandwagon haha

    Good European absinthe (I like German, i.e. Eichelberger) - or Slivovice (Czech plum liquor).

    Fair warning - either is not for everyone. You drink a little cup, then another little cup, and very suddenly (and irreversibly) your night becomes a lot more interesting.

    We need more off-topic posts around here. 
    I am pretty boring when it comes to booze, tbh.  My tastes are similar to what you listed above.  My typical go-to is American whiskey/bourbon or beer.  I've been getting away from beer recently as I tend to like the darker, hoppy beers, but recently drinking one of those feels like I just ate a 32 oz. prime rib on top of a pound of pasta.  My biggest decision is usually whether to drink the bourbon with coke, ginger ale or straight.  If I want to mix things up I'll have a vodka and sprite - or vodka and red bull.
    If made right, an Old Fashioned is really good.  I just never have all the ingredients and don't like spending more than 15 seconds preparing my drink.  If no one is looking, I'll add a splash of cranberry and wedge of lime to my vodka-sprite.  And maybe once a month I'll have a glass of red wine with a meal (but not something I would drink without food and I don't think this is what you're going for).
    Tequila and rum are also good, but haven't had either of them in years.  Amaretto, Sambuca and Drambuie are really good, but after a few shots you get sick of em.  The only things I absolutely would not drink are gin and white wine... or something fruity with umbrellas in it, unless I'm on a tropical island somewhere, in which case it would be the first thing I ordered.

    Ok, as a slut for drinking, I'm getting tired of drinking the same stuff... and I drink a lot of different liquors.  Not related to GPHM really... at all tbh, but what's a mixed drink or straight drink that you can give me??? 
    I know enough straight liquor that I have literally died from and mixed drinks that are really good, so give me a less common go to drink you like!!!
    I need something to subside me from drinking home-brew and vodka/ whiskey lately.   Give me suggestions on great mixed or straight drinks that make you have a good time!!!

    I suggested something very similar to this in the Focus Group prior to the reset.  I don't think I can link the post here, but here is what I stated.
     
    We should allow managers to Bid over the Cap.
    To clarify what I am suggesting, here is an example:  Say a team has $10M in cap space and wants to sign a free agent.  There are two free agents they would love to bid on, but they are both asking about $8M.  My suggestion would be to allow a team to bid on both players and select a priority (or have priority be based on the amount being offered) sort of like the draft priority function.
    Bid $8M on Player A (priority 1)
    Bid $7M on Player B (priority 2)
    If player A signs with your team, the offer on player B becomes invalid for salary cap reasons.  If player A signs with another team, the offer on player B can be processed.
    I don't have the slightest idea what level of effort this would take, but wondering if something like this would be possible in the future?

    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.

    Nooooo rush with the live game. I've never cared about that feature because it doesn't really add a whole lot to the game itself. Having said that, it does add tons of social cohesion if/when managers flock the chats during live game event, so I'm certainly not against it as long as it doesn't eat all the available resources.

    Kyle44 reacted to Wick Schozen in Playoff finish in team stats   
    Can we please do away with this "Playoff 1" "Playoff 2" business for where a team finished their season? I have no idea if playoff 1 or 2 is a first round exit or what. And I'm almost 100% certain that playoff 2 is a first round exit which makes absolutely zero sense. Could we not switch it to "Round 1", "Round 2", "Round 3", and then "Lost in GHL Cup final" or "Golden Cup Winner" depending on result. 

    It's such a minor detail but when looking at other teams it takes so much away by not being able to decipher some abstract description of how they did in the playoffs.

    Kyle44 reacted to Paul T in A few suggestions   
    I think in theory you are right.  The main reason I don't necessarily agree with this is because the overall ratings are already known... for current players, for free agents, for prospects... so it's not equivalent to real life that way.  To me the overall rating is the absolute base info you can get on a player, so why not make it easier to retrieve (along with shot R/L, height, weight).  In real life there are so many draft analysts, that they kind of tell you how good a player is at a certain time.
     
    To me, the deeper information is the specific attributes.  Personally, I don't really go by the players overall rating since I want them to fit my team and a specific line and role.  The more in depth info is attributes, injury history, traits, stats and development.  Development probably being the biggest one since that impacts where a player will land overall.  I also strongly believe that stats are a good indicator of how well players perform.  I've acquired some players in the past with high overalls who just can't score and others who exceed expectations, so I think that is a great hidden trait.
     
    But I would also be onboard with being able to export the specific attributes and leaving the overall hidden as well.  Just SOMETHING to shave off some time and encourage managers to do draft research.  Right now I think there's 2 types of managers when it comes to the draft.  Those who spend 10+ hours and those who don't bother at all.  I could be wrong.

    For number 2)
     
    I think its right when those who are more willing to scout get the price for it BUT it really could have more tools. Maybe opinion to search players by certain skill rating range? Like on fa market.
     
     
    For number 4)
     
    Should be there and could also add 5vs3 lines and 3vs5 lines?
     
     
    Few suggestions more without big explanarions:
     
    -Visual line chemistry (should reward long term lines, so you get reward for keeping same players and lines even several seasons)
     
    -National teams and maybe even best managers from previous seasons could go to manage them for a season and highlight being world cup
     
    -option to compare two players by ratings and profile
     
    -individual stats leaders for 18-21yo players
     
    -historical games between two teams (adding some rivarly)
     
    -historical top 20 stats on certain league and also in your team
     
    -play-by-play live feed. Dont know if its essy to code but would make evening even more thrilling
     
    -maybe U21 national teans too
     
    -option to keep opponents specific player under extra focus
