We made the playoffs 7 out of 10 years, making the Cup final once. I play on All-star difficulity.
I had him on the 2nd line with Mueller and Selanne, and IIRC he didn't even go PPG during the season. Maybe it was the playoffs since the finals was the only series that didn't go 7 and even that went to 6.

Simmed through the whole season and playoffs on All-star, but now I'm sort of screwed because Matthias got offersheeted (for 3.5x3 freakin $$ what the ****) and Mueller is asking for 6 million.

I had him in the AHL for the first year, he had a good year (Rampage was 2nd seed, lost in the 1st round in 5 games) but still didn't rise nearly enough what the stats would suggest. IIRC he was a 76 when I started, now he's a 79.

Also Howden&McFarland were playing 1st line and had good stats, but had the same little progress as Markstrom.

How does this thing actually work.
