Hockey In the Modern Era (or HITME) is a brand-new sim league using the Simon T Hockey Simulator starting up with the 1972-73 season.
The Simon T Hockey Sim (STHS) employs a FREE GM Client to allow GMs to run their teams, so there is absolutely nothing, zip, nada to lay out to participate in the league.
HITME's premise is to re-make hockey history starting with the formation of the World Hockey Association to battle the NHL in 1972. We need two GMs to fill out our 26 team league. The league will evolve on it's own, we're not going to tie franchise's fates to history. Can you take over the Minnesota Fighting Saints and lead them into an eventual NHL-WHA merger? Can you manage the Los Angeles Sharks to win the hearts and minds of Southern California before the NHL's LA Kings do?
If you check out the league, make sure to take a look at the Teams & GM page, we've got some good folks in the league and some of them you just might recognize.
The Fighting Saints and Sharks are the last two teams available. If you're interested or have questions, feel free to email the commish using the 'Contact' link on the league's website.
NOTE: The Flames and Seals were folded from the NHL to 'balance' the leagues (14 NHL/12 WHA teams). Should there be four interested parties, adding the Flames & Seals back in is a possibility.
