Just absolutely destroyed the league with this lineup, they went 54-20-8 in the 16/17 season

Zuccarello 85 - Carter 85 - Ryan 85
Umberger 83 - Anisimov 84 - Atkinson 85
Mursak 81 - Audy-Marchessault 80 - Clarkson 79
Upshall 78 - Boyle 77 - Backer 77

J.Johnson 87 - Tyutin 85
J.Moore 83 - Wisniewski 84
Erixon 83 - R.Murray 79

York 86
Dansk 82

Zuccarello scored 73 points, 65 of them were assists

Backer was a guy I drafted 2nd overall in the 2016 draft, 4.5* gold and 77 overall

Allen York recorded 42 wins, a 1.74 GAA, .941% and a whopping 14 shutouts

Somehow magically lost to Detroit in the 2nd round of the playoffs

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.
Do you think if I had Spezza(88) on a line with semin(85) and Nyquist(82) it would hurt him?

Alright guys I'm in the 4th year of my New Jersey Devils 5 year Gm and I want to win the cup this year, so how does my roster look:

Kovalchuk "C" (90) - Brassard (85) - Havlat (85)
Kostysin (83) - Zajac "A" (83) - Frk (80)
Osala (78) - Henrique (81) - Dagonstini (78)
Cullet (75) - Brule (78) - Holloway (76)
Scratches: Greening (76)

Del Zotto (85) - Larsson (86)
Morrow (82) - Petry (85)
Lowe (81) - Volchenkov "A" (81)
Scratches: Corrente (74), Urbom (72)

Kiprusoff (87)
Pouliot (86)

Note: I'm contemplating trading Kipper because I want to get Pouliot better and I have a 20-year-old 83 overall backup in the AHL. But kipper lead us to the Conference Finals last year so I really can't just trade because of the young guy.

EHL ANNOUNCED
NHL SHUT DOWN; NEW LEAGUE COMING


This man will no longer be 'running' a league.

Crazy news has been announced as the NHL has chosen to cease operations. "This lockout is too much" said Gary Bettman. "We have chosen to shut down the NHL". Fans everywhere are extremely angered. We would post some Tweets, but none would be appropriate. This news has shocked the whole sports world. Never has one of the major sports leagues just shut down out of the blue. All of the players in the NHL have been told they will receive their contract payments in full. Where will they play? KHL boss Alexander Medvedev has said he would take the now-unemployed players. "Yes, we will gladly accept them into our League" Medvedev said.

However, this next story will shock you even more. The owners of the Elitserien, Sm-Liiga, Czech Extraliga, Swiss League, and DEL have teamed up to form the Euro Hockey League. 11 Finnish, 3 Czech, 12 Swiss, 2 German, and 2 Swedish league teams have been announced as the league's 30 teams. These teams include 70 locked-out NHLers. The EHL has announced that "all NHLers currently on these teams will play in the EHL". This gives the league some star power, including the likes of Claude Giroux, Rick Nash, and Erik Karlsson.

This is incredibly shocking news. How one sports league can shut down then be replaced by an alternative one is mind boggling. If you thought this was all crazy, the team's rosters will be determined with a Fantasy Draft. This all adds up to the craziest story in probably hockey history.

Here is a full list of locked-out NHLers who will be playing in the EHL:

Jokerit: Erik Karlsson, Valteri Filppula
IFK: Stephane Robidas, Sean Bergenheim, Mathieu Perreault, Lennart Petrell
HPK: Antti Miettinen
Zurich: Dustin Brown
JYP: Rich Peverley, Lars Eller
KalPa: Derek Stepan, Craig Smith
Karpat: Jussi Jokinen, Kyle Turris, Jason Demers
Fribourg: David Deshairnais
Kloten: Brooks Laich
Tappara: Jannik Hansen, Kurtis Foster, Justin Braun
Davos: Joe Thornton, Rick Nash
Frolunda: Matt Duchene, Viktor Stalberg
MODO: Alex Steen, Kyle Cumiskey
Bern: John Tavares, Mark Streit, Roman Josi
Ambri-Piotta: Max Pacioretty, Cory Schneider
Hamburg: Jamie Benn
Berlin: Claude Giroux, Daniel Briere
Biel: Patrick Kane, Tyler Seguin, Marc-Antoine Pouliot
TPS: Mikko Koivu, Kevin Shattenkirk, Lauri Korpikoski, Kris Russell, Alec Martinez
Lukko: Frans Nielsen, Mikkel Boedker, Philip Larsen
Genete-Servette: Logan Couture, Yannick Weber
Pelicans: Antti Niemi, Jamie McBain
Lugano: Patrice Bergeron, Luca Sbisa
Rapperswill: Jason Spezza, Michael Del Zotto
Langnau: Tyler Ennis, Jared Spurgeon
Ilves: Maxime Talbot, Anders Lindback
Zug: Henrik Zetterberg, Raphael Diaz
Mountfield: Milan Michalek, Andrew Ference, Vaclav Prospal, Martin Hanzal
Kladno: Tomas Plekanec, Jaromir Jagr, Marek Zidlicky, Tomas Kaberle, Jiri Tlusty
Pardubice: David Krejci, Ales Hemsky, Jakub Kindl


For now, we will try and let this all sink in.

Traded Girardi and Michael Schumacher (61 ovr, 3,5 stars) to PHI for Simmonds and 1st rd pick, as my offense needed some ad-ons and on defense there are many players who can carry the team. Schumacher and 1st in a trade was because I'd like to draft high-end d prospect. I have Ryan Murphy in AHL, but after him, basically no one.

My line-up as for now:

Ilya Kovalchuk - Patrick Kane - Adam Henrique
Jussi Jokinen - Travis Zajac - Wayne Simmonds
Kaspars Daugavins - Maxim Lapierre - Louis Leblanc
Mike Hoeffel - T.J Hensick - Vladimir Zharkov
Ryan Carter, Mattias Tedenby

Keegan Lowe - Adam Larsson
Jarred Tinordi - Zach Bogosian
Anton Volchenkov - Steve Eminger
Ben Lovejoy

Jhonas Enroth
Antti Niemi

[QUOTE=Deku Scrub;56705471]****, 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, QUOTE]

Not a bad idea. Not bad at all.
I may have to try that once my pet projects in my Seals dynasty retire.

Side note:
The thing that bugs me when you get 8+ years in is the recycled player names. Joe Arnott, etc.

Evgeni Malkin Excited to Contribute in New York



When the NHL decided to shake things up with a fantasy draft prior to the 2012/13 season, the Pittsburgh Penguins were awarded to 2nd overall pick. When their former captain, Sidney Crosby, was selected first overall by the Phoenix Coyotes, they knew that they had to bring back Evgeni Malkin. They selected him with their first round pick. Geno was stellar in his last two seasons with Pittsburgh, recording 174 points in 164 games. However, the Penguins had to release him due to salary cap issues.

On July 8th, 2014, Malkin signed with the New York Rangers for eight years at $10.7 million dollars per year.

"I will miss Pittsburgh," said Malkin. "But I'm happy to be in New York. I help bring cup to Pittsburgh... now I help bring it to NYC."

The all-star Russian forward recorded two goals and an assist in his debut with the Rangers, playing on a line with Milan Michalek and Cam Atkinson.

Why would the players get their full contracts paid to them? And where is the picture of Donald Fehr has this lockout is more the NHLPA's fault than the owners...

He's trying to have a fun time by changing things up and wanted to make a quick but interesting backstory. Do you really need to criticize it then turn this into a lockout discussion?

Started a new dynasty with Tampa after the roster update. Traded Matt Carle and some scrub draft pick to MTL for Galchenyuk. Finished second last in year one, but Gally jumped from a 63 to an 83 overall and is playing LW on my top line beside Stamkos. I know a couple people have mentioned how slowly he developed for them so I thought this way interesting.

COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS 2013-2014 MID-SEASON REPORT
January 3, 2014

2014 looks to be a good year in Columbus with the team on track for its best in franchise history. The Blue Jackets currently find themselves 7th in the NHL, albeit only 6th in the Western Conference, primarily due to stellar goaltending from goaltenders Sergei Bobrovsky and Steve Mason. Bobrovsky has fielded most of the starts, compiling a 17-9-2 record with a 2.05 GAA, 92.6 SV%, and 3 shutouts while Mason has done almost equally well with a 6-5-2 record, 2.22 GAA, 93.1 SV%, and 1 shutout.

Last year's award winners Ryan Murray, R.J. Umberger, and James Wisniewski have all had their respective struggles so far in the 2013-2014 campaign. Calder trophy winner Ryan Murray has missed all but 16 games due to injury and had less-than-impressive production when he did play with just 3 assists to his name. Last year's Maurice "Rocket" Richard winner, R.J. Umberger, has struggled in the goal-scoring department with 11 goals so far in 40 games, putting him on pace for 22 goals, well off last year's 36-goal pace. Wisniewski was an offensive catalyst for the Blue Jackets last season, racking up 13 goals and 43 points to go along with a +23. Production is down dramatically from the Blue Jackets' highest-paid defenseman with just 2 goals and 14 points so far and a -5 in the +/- category.

38-year-old Vaclav "Vinny" Prospal has carried the bulk of the offensive burden through the first half of the season, accumulating 32 points through the first 41 games, 10 more than the next highest scorer on the team. The veteran continues to be remarkably consistent when it comes to finding the score sheet coming off of 55- and 51-point seasons and now on pace for 64 points as he continues his remarkable play into his late-30s.

The Blue Jackets currently possess the league's most dangerous power play, capitalizing at a rate of 21.65% (42/194), just edging out Florida's 21.59% (49/227) power play numbers.

2013-2014 Columbus Blue Jackets Mid-Season Summary

Team Statistics
Record: 23-14-4 (50 points, 7th)
Goals For: 101 (16th)
Goals Against: 92 (3rd)
Power Play Efficiency: 21.6% (1st)
Penalty Kill Efficiency: 83.1% (19th)

Individual Statistics
Vinny Prospal: 41GP, 13G, 19A, 32P

Shooting Percentage: 101 goals on 1160 shots (8.7%, 28.3 shots per game)

2011-2012 real life totals: 6545 goals on 73177 shots (8.9%, 29.7 shots per side per game)

I'm getting pretty close to realistic numbers in CPU vs. CPU play. Still down a bit in the shots department and a bit in the shooting percentage department, but it's annoying because changing things 1 notch makes a much larger difference than I'd like (example: Changing from 12 minute to 13 minute periods, you'd think the average shots would increase by 8.3% (13/12 = 1.083), but instead, it goes up nearly 20% for some strange reason, from approximately 28 shots per side per game to approximately 33. Increasing shot accuracy from 1/6 to 2/6 increases shooting percentages from ~8.5% to over 10%. If you just increase the slap shot accuracy and one-timer accuracy, then the AI just tries to do slap shots and one-timers all game. If you reduce the goalie reaction speed below 2/6, the goaltenders never make highlight reel saves and can't react to deflections. *sigh*)

Also, the latest tuner seems to have increased hitting power substantially for the AI. Guys flying all over the place. Had to knock hitting power down from 1/6 to 0/6.

Current settings, for anyone curious ...

I tried Superstar, but the shooting percentages were just insane even with 0/6 shot accuracy. I'd like to add a bit to slap shot power as Chara's only hitting mid-90s MPH at 3/6, but I run into the same problem as I did with increasing slap shot accuracy, which is that the AI just tees up slappers all game. CPU faceoff difficulty is a weird one because you'd think it only applies to humans, but at full, players are too even as far as faceoff win percentages go (i.e. Paul Gaustad vs. Artem Anisimov should not be a 50/50 split). One of the key things is bumping down goalie reaction speed. At 2/6, goalies don't make insane, highlight reel saves very often, so when they do, it's actually very exciting. The default is 4/6, where a Shea Weber slap shot from the slot is gloved like it's nothing 9/10 times ... At 2/6 with the reduction in shot accuracy, it usually ends up hitting the goaltender and rebounding in some direction, depending on where it hit the goalie and, even if the goalie gets a glove on it, he usually doesn't catch it. I tried reducing reaction speed to 1/6, but then goaltenders weren't able to react to deflections, even on slow shots.

I am absolutely tearing up the league with the Sharks. My record so far is 33-11-3, which adds to 69 points in 47 games.

Noob - Does difficulty really alter the shooting percentage? I always sim and play on Superstar; I tend to have a fewer SV% when I play but that's compensated by me allowing fewer shots. The CPU's SV% usually stays around the same as in the sims. Overall, scoring is still below real life values despite me maxing out penalties and simming with 0 on Goaltending reflexes (not sure if it makes a difference).

Strictly talking CPU vs. CPU, I had to make the following changes:

- Reduce shot accuracy to 0/6 for all 3 categories (which still resulted in an 11.6% shooting percentage over the 10 test games)
- Reduce period length to 10 minutes (to reduce # of shots per game)

Now, part of that is because the AI is better at setting up plays, so there are better scoring chances, but there is definitely a notable difference in terms of shooting accuracy, passing accuracy, pass reception, etc. even on 0/6 for all those sliders. On 1/6 on all-star, many point shots go wide by a foot or two just like in real life, but pretty much every point shot on 0/6 superstar hits the net.

If I could get realistic results with Superstar, I'd do it (for the smarter, more fluid AI) but I can't seem to get it without going back to super goalies making Save of the Year calibre saves multiple times every game.

The other interesting tidbit is that when I had that 14-0-1 streak going last season, that was ALL on Superstar. As soon as I turned it back to All-Star, Columbus came crashing back down to earth. It was completely bizarre that Columbus turned into this unstoppable force on the higher difficulty setting. The first game was 9-4 Columbus with 81 combined shots (Superstar, 12 min periods, 1/6 shooting accuracy) and then I tweaked from there until I got the # of shots down, but over those next 10 games, as I mentioned, the combined shooting percentages were far too high on 0/6 accuracy.

If you're simming, the sliders don't seem to have much (if any) effect on simulations.

Playing on Superstar seems different than CPU vs. CPU/Coach on Superstar from what I've observed, although I don't have the data to back that up (I can't stand playing on Superstar). I notice that you don't see the same garbage on CPU vs. CPU like Hal Gill outskating Sidney Crosby in a race for the puck or a player reaching through an opposing player to get the puck and then pulling it back through him. I'm guessing EA turns off/tones down the bias factor when it's CPU vs. CPU/Coach Mode.

Decided to start my first dynasty mode in years vs. the CPU on Superstar as I noticed on HUT they put up a challenge.

Edmonton Oilers

First game, get a quick hat trick. With who? Taylor Hall? Jordan Eberle? RNH?

Nope

Theo Peckham. Who also injured Henrik Sedin for 11 games.

7-3 Win Oilers

Oiler goals: Peckham (3), Horcoff, Hartikainen, Whitney, Nugent-Hopkins
Canuck goals: Lapierre, H. Sedin, Kesler

Already enjoying this dynasty mode.

Started up a 10 year NHL Fantasy Draft. Here's how my NHL roster shakes up:

Forwards:

Cammalleri(85 OVR) - J. Thorton(88 OVR | C) - Havlat(85 OVR)
Heatley(85 OVR) - Ribeiro(82 OVR) - Hemsky(83 OVR)
Sullivan(79 OVR) - Fisher(82 OVR) - Vrbata(82 OVR)
S. Thorton(74 OVR) - Fiddler(75 OVR) - Torres(75 OVR)

Defenceman:

Carle(86 OVR | A) - Z. Michalek(86 OVR | A)
Liles(82 OVR) - Hainsey(83 OVR)
Ericsson(77 OVR) - Salo(82 OVR)

Goaltenders:

Lundqvist(91 OVR) - Hedberg(73 OVR)

I've definetley had better drafts before but never had an Elite goalie. I'm hoping Lundy will be a brick wall and I hope my loaded offence with a mix of defence can get it done! I also think those too top 2 future Defenceman in Carle and Michalek will be great for me. I drafted/signed a boat load of top notch prospects aswell:

Forward Prospects:

Galchenyuk - ****1/2
Faksa - ****1/2
Huberdeau - ****1/2
Grigerenko - ****1/2
Scheifele - ****1/2
Jaskin - ****
Rattie - ****
Hertl - ****
Matteau - ****

Defenceman Prospects:

Ceci - ****1/2
Rielly - ****1/2
G. Reinhart - ****1/2
Murray - ****1/2
Pouliot - ****1/2
Goaltending Prospects:

Campbell - ****1/2
M. Subban- ****1/2
Gibson - ****1/2

(Hard to see, I know). Some great prospects though. I know Huberdeau, Rielly and Murray get good pretty fast so I'm hoping they can greatly help out in years 3-4.

I will let you know how we do. Cheers!

Joe Nieuwendyk steps down as GM leaving position to Dan Murray
September 26, 2012


Nieuwendyk Giving his closing press conference

After only three seasons as the Dallas Stars GM, Niewendyk has stepped down. Thought to be sticking with the Stars another year when he made a flurry of trades and signings this offseason, the owners were surprised when they got the call. "Joe has been a big part of the franchise spanning form the beginning of his career to even after it becoming GM in 09," said owner Tom Gaglardi. Joe did not want to make a comment about his leave only telling us, "I have helped the Stars as much as I can, I hope the next GM can help them to another and so longed for cup."

To take over Niewendyk's position is experienced GM Dan Murray. He has headed management of the Plymouth Whalers for the past 2 seasons and has seen success in both. We had a chance to talk to the new GM in a press conference late yesterday, "I am very excited to head such a prominent franchise and I believe we have a strong base of players to work with. With scoring talents Jamie Benn and Loui Eriksson and elite goaltender Kari Lehtonen at the backend I believe we are off to a good start. Though there are still holes that need to be filled in the lineup, which hopefully can be done through our prospects like Radek Faksa, John Klingberg, and Jyrki Jokipakka."

Murray didn't comment on the issies and possibility of tradingcaptain Brendan Morrow. More on this later

Murray Makes Trade only days after becoming GM
September 30, 2012


Meet the newest Dallas Stars

Well only days after becoming GM, Dan Murray made his first deal and was a little upsetting to some fans. The Avalanche received defenseman Mark Fistric and center Tom Wandell in exchange for defenseman Duncan Siemens and right winger Milan Hejduk. Both sides received what they needed. Dallas is looking at a long term approach which is why they wanted the highly-toted prospect Siemens but they also wanted to still have a fighting chance during the season which is why they received Hejduk.

The same is for the Avalanche who wanted to bolster an already deep core of defensemen and wanted to make the playoffs this year so they will have hard-hitting, gritty guy like Mark Fistric. Tom Wandell will be the finishing touch on a skilled list of centers on the Avalanche.

Some fans of the Stars were disapointed about the deal. One told us, "I think this is going to be like in 2010-2011. We trade Neal for Goligoski, who at the time was having a great season compared to Neal who was not. And then boom next year what do you know Neal gets an 81-point season while Goligoski barely breaks 30." While the fan has a point, Murray believes this trade will really help the team.

Details of the trade are listed below:

Receive

D Mark Fistric
C Tom Wandell

Receive

D Duncan Siemens
RW Milan Hejduk
