The penalty goes on the team, not the GM. Because you sat Lehtonen during some of your games (but not the sim, I assume), you will get him back for the end of your series.
he started my first game against the cpu by accident, i quickly changed him to bachman and then in the menu league afterwards

kari had 73 gp before i took him over, and appeared in 74 total after i did, how could i have done better?

also this is why i hadnt mentioned anything beforehand

But there WILL be consequences to those teams that have been here since Day 1 and made no efforts to play thier backups.

My response was below that, where I vehemently disagreed with Chuck. Also, there were also discussions about this rule much, much earlier in the season. In fact, I began updating people about their goalies GP in mid-December.

I'm not saying you could have done better, but much like a bad trade, you need to live your predecessors mistakes. Bachman isn't bad, you might be able to salvage a game or two, and then have Lehtenon back for the home-stretch.

EDIT: Next season, I imagine most GMs will take special care to make sure they get their back-ups in early, just for this reason. All you really need to do is put them in for the sim. They will play until there is an injury (1-2 games). That's basically 10 GP over the course of the season.

it was tough to keep up with the goalies, sometimes they just get played through the sims, it seemed i actually played more games with my backup then i did with my actual goal tender with how much we simmed through the season. Not that there is anything wrong with that, because i have a really good back up, who outplayed my starter most of the season. Im just sayin, i physically played more with Brobovsky than I did with Ward. But having a number one guy for the sims is essential

I used my backup goalies 9 games through 3 sim windows.

I then used them exclusively toward the end of the season, when I was trying to...uh...build for next year.

There are different strategies--in some ways, it is better to use your backups in playable games, since attributes and overall seem to make more of a difference in sims. That's why we left it up to the individual GM to decide how and when to get the backups in--but it is also why we are imposing harsh penalties for non-compliance.

I think the best way to do it is to make sure your backup gets a lot of games in at the start of the season.

The Stars benefited from having Lehtonen play the extra games. Consider this, the Stars only barely got into the playoffs. Who's to say that if Bachman had started those four extra games throughout the season, Boots' Blues wouldn't have been there instead? Or Columbus, if they had started Ward 76 games?

Like I said before, punishment goes with the team, not the human user. Much like if DAL had made an awful trade, claude has to live with the consequences of his predecessor's mistakes.

Good call, you're right.

Really, really regretting winning that game against the Senators during the last block.

Florida is actively shopping the 3rd overall pick (with a chance at1st) after a disappointing season. Looking for something that will give an immediate impact
