I've never fiddled with the strategies at all. I just feel like the sim engine is garbage, even if you have Stamkos, Crosby, Ovechkin, Karlsson, Doughty, Price ect...

At the draft, Washington traded a first round pick (23rd) and 2 3rds for the 20th overall pick. Washington had been scouting Zach Fucale, who was projected to go 22nd and felt that they should move up a few spots in hopes of getting him.

2013 NHL Draft:
1st overall - Nathan MacKinnon (73ovr 5green)
3rd overall - Jonathan Drouin (76ovr 4.5green)
20th overall - Zach Fucale (55ovr 4green)

At the 2014 Draft, the Washington Capitals made a trade with the Columbus Blue Jackets.. Columbus received Nicklas Backstrom in exchange for Aleksander Barkov (62ovr 5y) and their 1st in 2014 and 2015. During free agency, the Washington Capitals signed Corey Perry to a 8yr/$8.990 contract.

2014 NHL Draft:
1st overall (from Columbus) - Aaron Ekblad (66ovr 4.5green)
27th overall - Joshua Ho Sang (72ovr 4yellow)

2015 NHL Draft:
1st overall (Columbus) - Connor McDavid (79ovr 5green)
12th overall - Jeremy Roy (72ovr 4green)

I'll post the lineup heading into the 2015/16 season next... as well as salary.
Nice! I always love getting sick stud future players. Connor McDavid??? I thought they didn't update the rosters?

I saw Backstrom get to 90 overall in year 2 from 2BC, hmm bold move.
