If one can be in multiple leagues, a fun idea would be to have each NHL team board here play in a league together, playing for their board. Actually playing, like EASHL, so the league's Sharks team would be all HF Sharks board members, and the league's Devils team would be all of us playing.
based on ea's track record, random rosters are not even close to a guarantee of being fair. i'd be all for a fantasy draft, but the game just randomly giving us a roster scares the hell out of me.
Oh, I am well aware that random would also give non even rosters, but it atleast gives everyone equal odds of not having a terrible roster. Like I said though, Im Boston - Im not gonna complain if we are sticking with rosters - I will happily go with whatever the majority wants.
