I have the PS3 version. It came with a really small booklet, but the actual manual is in the game itself. Saves them money and helps the environment through using less paper.

I'd imagine it's probably the same for the Xbox.

More like makes them money. Not like any savings were passed on to the consumer.

Can anyone give a detailed account of Be a GM mode? I am only going to buy the game if they made some serious fixes here....

Lalime is the backup until you download the roster update.

Spent most of last night looking at Be A Pro. So far, what I've noticed in Be A GM mode is that EA is still terrible at rating prospects/knowing which prospects even exist.

Oh, and if the CPU has to cap fix your team, you will probably end up with an AHL guy who is supposed to be on his ELC making like 6M. Don't know why there's no option to just start the game and have to fix cap situation prior to regular season.

Leino (TWF 82) - Ennis (SNP 83) - Stafford (TWF 83)
Gerbe (PLY 82) - Gausted (GRN 83) - Boyes (SNP 83)

Not Assigned: Morrisonn (DFD 81), Weber (DFD 80)




Goalies

Miller (HYB 91)
Lalime (HYB 79)

Thanks for this, I've been looking all over.

Power Play

First Unit

Vanek - Roy - Leino
Myers - Ehrhoff

Second Unit

Ennis - Gerbe - Pomminville
Stafford - Leopold



Pentalty Kill

First Unit

Hecht - Pomminville
Myers - Regehr

Second Unit

Roy - Leino
Montador - Ehroff


Enroth (HYB 80) Doesn't show up when u play a season, but is on the primary roster? Don't get it.
Thanks for this, I can't get it for a couple days and I've been wondering what they're like. NHL in my opinion has had the worst rosters, ratings-wise, for years compared to all of the other games. In particular the NBA 2k series has done a great job at making the gaps much bigger; there's no way Ville Leino, a highly sought after FA and grossly talented player, is only 1 overall better than Ales Kotalik, a guy no one wants a part of and will probably be in the AHL.

Also not understanding how Ehrhoff is a 2-way defenseman... Not saying he's not good defensively, but he's definitely someone you would peg as an offensive defenseman. I noticed that his jersey number isn't even right; he's number 5 in the game.

Going home from school this weekend basically so I can get this game, can't wait to dominate with the new-look squad.

Thanks,

I think I will hold off this year as I don't have the time to dedicate hours in order to fix the rosters....Last year I bought the game and couldn't finish one Be A GM Mode because it sucked so bad...As unrealistic as NHL 10's was...at least I enjoyed playing it.
