Be a GM mode:

Salary demands based on production.

24 year old AHLers shouldn't be demanding 4.6 million dollars. Now I can hear some people yammering about how you could lowball young guys with great potential and lock them up cheap for 6/8 years. Well, no. If EA was smart (which they're not), they'd make it so guys in such situations wouldn't accept long-term contracts. Have it so guys like these would only sign for 2 years - 3 tops- so they can actually earn the 4+M they're asking for in a couple seasons.

Also, with trade value and production being almost entirely separate, buying low, selling high, cap dumps, and other such crap doesn't exist in the EA universe. Despite the fact Phil Kessel can barely ever manage above 60 points, he remains one of the more valuable forwards in the NHL. Which is obviously stupid. Despite the fact that a rookie I drafted in the 3rd round still on his ELC is a top 5 goalie in the league, he's barely valuable enough to return a 2nd round pick. Which is obviously stupid.
