It's so much fun. I love seeing what they thought certain players would become. It sucks if you like a certain player in real life that's good but sucks in the game. I noticed that the Lightning in my game drafted #4 in 2008 and nabbed none other than Steven Stamkos. And I think the Islanders the following year got JT. I've had a few guys go to their "correct" team already. And in my file, Stamkos actually looks like he could become a beast... I remember in the original DB him always sucking.

Niittymaki got injured the year after we repeated as Cup champions and won the Presidents trophy around January so we've been tanking from 1st place to 2nd We will make the playoffs but probably an early exit, which is fine for me. Not sure if I should re-sign Scott Hartnell (my #1 RW, perfect physical player for the top line) at about $5 mil/year or let him go and see if I can find someone cheaper. My mindset is still in that budget mode but I do have money to spend although, Crosby and Malkin will be due for new contracts soon.

And crazy, I've never seen a player drop that much from one season to another.
