This might be an interesting experiment. Sim a season game-by-game, ensuring that a player is always a scratch, and see what happens.

Could be a way to narrow our choices with regard to merit-based growth.

Had a 3.5 star green player, traded him to nj for a 4.5 yellow, and now the 3.5 guys is outproducing my guy by A LOT oh yea they are both 88 ovr right now. One question, how deos a 3.5 star potential guy get up to 88?

Peak OVR:

5-star = 80-99 OVR
4.5-star = 75-99 OVR
4-star = 70-94 OVR
3.5-star = 65-89 OVR
3-star = 60-84 OVR
2.5-star = 55-79 OVR
2-star = 50-74 OVR
1.5-star = 45-69 OVR
1-star = 40-64 OVR
0.5-star = 36-59 OVR

It's extremely rare for 3.5-star guys to hit the high-80s, but it does happen. I'm not really sure 99 OVR is possible as the highest I've seen is 98 (Crosby somehow got there). Actually, anything over 89 is pretty damn rare.

I've had 3 people get to 96 (all 5 star green guys) First was Damien Ketlo who the game made him randomly good for some reason and the other two are players i created to see how high i could get their overall.

The above was what I logged for fictional players. Some real players seem to have their own rules (Jonathon Blum would be another example) where they exceed these, but I've yet to have a fictional character actually do it in multiple 25-year BAGMs (logging all 1st round picks and all of my team's picks).

Yea, it depends on each file. I have had him top out at 89, 84 and 79 in 3 seperate files.

One of my players with 3.5 stars was a 4th liner 79 overall at age 23. 4 seasons later, still 79 overall every season on the 4th line, I finally give up on him at the age of 27. Hes a scratch the entire season and plays 0 games. He jumps from 79 to 81 and is now a 3rd liner. Also the player that took his spot dropped from 79 to 77 overall.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND.

Kristofer Berglund (Not sure what his stars are, but I think it's 3... He hit 87 overall for me. Although he might be 3.5, if so I apologize aha

If the players stats are bad, it can negate any progression that they made. I.e., if they're a TWF that finishes with 10 points and a -32, having a season where they finish with 0's across the board might be better for their overall rating.

I had a 4 yellow star powerforward RW that led the team 60 points in his first AHL season at 19 years old. He only jumped 4 points from a 63 to a 67. However, that year the team finished below .500 and his +/- was -34. Not a single player on the team was a plus. The next year I invested some more money in that team and brought in a reliable goalie, better depth forwards, and strengthened the D. He put up 62 points, but the team made it to the conference semi-finals and he was a +12. He jumped to a 78.

Morale has a huge impact on player development.

Haha Vancouver drafted a goalie first overall in 2021, he was 20 years old with 5 yellow star potential, I traded for him, and after one year in the AHL (which he played every single game I think) he went from a 70 overall to an 87. Now that's progress

Yeesh, that's some crazy variation. I kind of prefer the potential system in NHL 12.

since a lot of you seem to have played quite a few seasons, I was wondering if you can give me a glimpse at how some Habs prospects have done in your sims (I realize it varies). Namely:

Galchenyuk
Tinordi
Holland
Bournival
Weber

also, how high does Patches go? He didn't jump at all in my first offseason, hoping he gets a bit higher than 84...Subban got up to 87 for season 2, hoping he can crack 90 eventually.

Not sure about the others, but I have Galchenyuk on my team and he's at 88 overall right now. Scored 37 goals for me one year

Does anybody know if a player will grow quicker if they are in the CHL for a year as apposed to being unsigned?

Purely anecdotal but CHL players seem to grow faster than unsigned to me.
