Never go to coach>edit lines.

Always Go to the Roster Moves under GM moves, and edit your lines from there. It's faster anyway.

Urgh, so much this! It's even worse than in NHL 12. Before, only players you didn't re-sign that couldn't find a job elsewhere would pop back. Now you also get the guys who never had a contract with you in the first place... it's downright impossible to make an AHL team a developmental one if your prospects are always behind some 28 y/o 72 overall grinder. To make matters worse, young players are horribly underrated (due to low Poise I think).

Doing a GM mode with Columbus, Pulock jumped from 75 to 87 after a season when I drafted him. Hamilton jumped from 79 to 87 playing with Pulock that year. Johnson dropped to 85 and no potential so I traded him. Baertschi is an 87 overall right now, Yakupov 86, Granlund 85, Cole Hawes 82, MacKinnon 85, Huberderp 89, Rielly 86, Ekblad 86, Ryan Murray 86. Pretty sick young lineup

Yes. Goalie fatigue must be new in 13. NHL 12 didn't have any effect on a goalie playing much. he still had a ton of shutouts in the playoffs. So it's not that bad.

It's all fun and games until a few seasons in when you have to pay everyone what they're worth.

I got to say it feels awesome that you can still have a championship roster and can have a 4,000,000 dollars in cap space.

I'm cheap. Later in my Be a GM 2017 or 18 I had to OVERsign Nick Schultz to be my 6th D. Paid him 4.5 just to get to the floor.
Won the cup...

I have 2 versions of the same Be a GM going. After the 2nd contract, 5 or 6 years in I took a job with the Canucks. Started with the Seals (PHX --> Seattle).

The Nick Schultz thing was for the Canucks. In my Seals 17/18 I am pretty tight to the cap, but at the deadline I moved Yandle and his 5+ and a couple of others. I think I am 8 or so below the cap now...

Like I said. Cheap. I do like to keep my core guys. I sign them long term though.
Drafted William Karlsson in 13 draft (even though he should be a Duck), played him tons since PHX had crap Centres. Now he is like my pet project.
Him and Jeremy Boyce-Rotevall. Drafter JBR 60th. He is now an 84(ish), my captain, plays PP, PK, has a stat line of 64-12-50-64 in 18/19. I will play until he and Karlsson retire.

When I took the job with the Canucks I took a few guys with me to quicken the rebuild. LAZAR (3rd OA in 2013), BARKOV (29th in 2013), GUDBRANSON (Alex) since they were on the cusp with my Seals dream team. I think they were all 79 OA. They flourished with the move to Vancouver. Was going to rescue Karlsson too, but wanted to develop LAZAR and BARKOV.

My goalie that I will keep forever (ala BRODEUR) is Johan Gustafsson. Originally drafted 159th by the Wild. Signed as a UFA, played on farm for 1-2 years, now 3 or 4 Vezina's in a row!!! An 84/85 OA!!

Dude that's awesome! One thing that always gets me mad in my Be a GMs is how none of the players on my roster can become points per game.

Hmmmm.

My Huberdeau is a 90, Ekblad 88... Galchenyuk is like 78, Baertschi is 84 I believe. Then I have a young center, Griffith, who's an 86 in his 3rd year.

Don't have the others. I thought MY team was stacked with young talent, lol.

Not sure if I have ever had a guy with point per game either. my 64 in 64 guy will taper off, I'm sure.

My D kills though, and Gustafsson has a career GAA of less than 2. From memory. I may be wrong. I'm sure it was 1.88, 1.97, etc.


I find it painful to play a bunch of 80 OA guys on the 3rd line that I have developed from scratch. Then they get 30-40 pts and I'm like "Come on Buddy, pick it up!" OOPS. 3rd line minutes, checking role...

Started up an Edmonton Oilers BE A GM, did everything that needed to be done. Was just about to sim and went into contracts to check out Yakupov's stats and couldn't find him. Did they take him out of the game, with this new roster update? Beucase he wouldn't be on Sarnia or the Oilers and there isn't a KHL in this game. It really angers me.

Are the draft classes the same in the later years? I'm in the 3rd year of GM Connected and was just wondering. Like if I saw someone on here draft a guy who became 95 ovr, could i get the same guy from my draft?

I just downloaded the old update and copied down all his attributes and stuff in a word document, then went ahead and downloaded the new one again, and just created him. I figured it would be better to do that than play without all the guys like Drouin and McDavid

****, I accidentally saved over my Avs Be a GM when started a new one. So no more of that. I decided to start a fantasy draft as the Rangers - but let the computer make every pick. It had the 13th overall pick, and here's what my roster is like:

Michalek (84) - J. Staal (86) - Hodgson (80)
Ennis (79) - Marchand (83) - Atkinson (78)
Camper (77) - Johansen (77) - Matthias (81)
Chimera (78) - Hecht (76) - Palushaj (76)

Yandle (85) - Subban (86)
Boychuk (81) - Salo (85)
Mcquaid (79) - Carle (79)

Miller (92)
Auld (77)

I'm in the second year now, but I didn't make any trades or sign any free agents. The first year was pretty uneventful, we finished in 6th and got swept by Ottawa in the first round.

I think the computer did a pretty sick job at drafting this team, lots of up-and-coming guys who are already on the roster like Yandle, Subban, Ennis, Atkinson, Johansen, and Hodgson. And the best goalie in the game, to top things off.

Top Prospects:

D Griffin Reinhart (63 overall, 20 years old, 4.5 yellow)
C Radek Faska (60 overall, 20 years old, 4.5 yellow)
G Justin Myles (54 overall, 18 years old, 4.5 yellow)
D Yann Sauve (76 overall, 23 years old, 3.5 yellow)
(also a bunch of other 3.5 star players who I don't feel like listing)

We finished year two in seventh place, with a record of 40-32-10. Our top point scorer was Jordan Staal with 47. However we did have six forwards break 40 points and four defenseman break 30 points.

I'll post again about our playoff run and player progression later.

Another question. Does it matter if you put a guy labelled as a 1st line forward on the 2nd line? Would it drop his ovr at all, or is ovr just dependant on pts?

I also thought I'd post my lineup.

GM Connected 2014-15 Season Lineup
Van Riemsdyk(88)-Crosby(95)-Gaborik(89)
Nyquist(82)-Spezza(88)-Semin(85)
Moss(77)-Emmerton(80)-Downie(80)
Greening(76)-Wingels(79)-Hansen(79)

Defense:
Martin(86)-Karlsson(89)
Oduya(80)-Gorges(84)
Gilroy(77)-Sanguinetti(76)

Goalie:
Lundqvist(91)
Svedberg(63)

My team has completely changed since day 1. I cant remember the exact roster I had at the beginning, but the only two remaining guys are Gorges and Martin, LOL.

I can't be completely sure about it but no it doesn't. Unless you put them on the 3rd then it changes them. But these overall changes are kinda weird sometimes

How do you create a player? I tried doing that and it just re-did all my EASHL guy/stuff.

If he's in his older years like Alffy for example, putting him on the 2nd line would lower his overall. Yes. Sometimes(most times) they lowen but it depends on age most times. And obviously you will see a decrease on points from him playing on the first to 2nd line.
