Got a man named John Grill on my GHL team in Lumber, he's 42 years old and still going strong with a 97 overall and putting 15-20 pts per year while being on the 3rd or 4th line. He played in GHL is whole career, maybe one for the HOF!

I remember John Grill. He was a great player. Played on my team in his mid 30s.

Waltzing is a Fine Player. Past his prime but I think he is still a fine player. Why don't you call him up so he gets a shot at a 1000 points, from what I saw in his stats he is only 2 points shy of the mark. If there is a Hall of Fame, he is a definite Candidate, he reminds me of the Great Bill Gadsby, just played even longer.

I have a guy named "Seb Jett"(43 years old) and he is legit a god. He has dropped a lot from being 94-95 overall, he is now 56 overall but he has been a major factor on my team. I still have him signed to a contract so that he can retire on my team, and so that he can retire a legend(yes my team is the legends and the pun was intended). He's been here since the start of Game World Howitzer.

So there's this guy that is nearly 50 years old in my game world.....surely a bug?

87 defense player with 55 overall rating lol ! sure he can still be useful for his defensive skills even if old. thats like in real hockey. some have skills that never get old whatever their age they are still good at it. i just had a 40 years old player that i could have signed again but i did not and he retired. if i would have signed him he would still play. i guess if you dont sign those old players they will probably retire. in that case with my 40 years old player , he dropped from about 90 rating to 78 in the last season so i did not want to keep him at the 2.8 million salary he was asking with a ghl contract... its a bit weird he was asking for so much considering the rating drop. otherwise i would have signed him just for fun and put him in aahl.

I guess if i don't re sign him he will retire. I just don't want someone else to sign him in free agency for whatever reason. Since hes been with my franchise his whole career.

What do you mean by unrealistic? 49yo players exist and were playing in the past for much higher leagues than what 55 OVR can pley here. 

 

For proof I need just one word - Chelios. 

 

Even if not resigned, he might not retire yet - I think the retirement is random in here and does not really matter if the player is signed or FA.

Yes...but how often does it happen? Especially in the modern era. I just think it's a bit silly.

And how often does it happened in GPHM? I have seen many players retiring around 40-45, not so many active older... And that is not that rare age these days. Also we are not talking about NHL level, with 55 OVR the player cannot even play in LIHL and trust me, there are hockey players in age 45-50 that still want to play, but they are in local semi-pro leagues most of us never heard of.

The average NHL retirement age is 37. For some game worlds like Lumber, the average retirement age is closer to 40 or 41. I just think it can be toned down a bit.

I have a question. Can a player retire in the middle of his contract, or is it restricted to when the contract expires? I'm trying to sign a guy who's 35 years old, and I'd hate to see him retire in the middle of his active contract.
