I just posted this in the Chatzy, but I'm going to post it here as well because, well, it just makes too much sense.

Why doesn't one league member simulate the season on NHL 12 with updated rosters instead of us voting for playoffs? It would be much more realistic.

I'll be involved with this game. What I intend to do depends on the results of DHabs game. I can be a commmish or agent regardless, if you need me.
Let it be known to all that I officially "dibs" produce man if he is an assistant GM. Thank you

So get one of the commissioners to do it, or someone not involved with any team.

It could work, but a problem I see with it is that a lot of players are horribly under/over rated in those games. Derek Roy is an 88? Right....

Personally, I like what we have now.

Uh, why exactly is it preferable to have a vote as to who makes the playoffs as opposed to simulating it?

1. Over/under rated players in NHL 12.
2. NHL 12s sim system sucks.
3. This is about who can build the best team, and IMO, GMs votes can get closer to that than a simulator. True, the best team rarely win the cup in real life, but I think this is more about who can build the best team than accurately showing how a playoff series would go... because that is impossible.

Even taking all three of these into consideration, I think simming is a much more realistic option. What's to prevent a GM from ranking a team last who he didn't have the best relationship with trades and such?

Law of averages says one GM ranking a team badly will be over-ruled by the other 29.

Neither system is perfect by any means, but I think voting is closer.

Has any game on this board ever tried the other way that you know of?

It has been talked about using other methods, however it has always came back to being quicker and easier to use votes then NHL sims.

You guys need an experienced agent for RFAs? I could lend some time to help, I'm a bit of a stickler (i.e., no one is signing a player with top-six forward upside at the age of 21 to a 4 year deal worth $1.25 million per year...or any nonsense like that). Prefer to do RFAs because I know what's required of qualifying offers, one-way/two-way stuff, etc. If you need someone, feel free to PM me, if not, that's fine too.

need legit top six talent, and offensive + defensive depth

David Krejci is willing to be packaged for a puck moving defenseman or top 6 scoring winger

I am a first-season GM who is also looking for an assistant. You could help out as much or as little as you'd like and it would all be appreciated greatly. PM if interested.
