Oh I know, I completely forgot about Roy when picking the team so that was quite the pleasant surprise!

I didn't buy live last year so I haven't tried the GM connected yet but I've been playing the game for years. How exactly does a league like this work if I were to join as either Phoenix or Calgary? Similar to a fantasy sim league we just get to actually play the games?

Yup, it's just like Be A GM mode except most of the teams are player controlled.

Sounds like a good time. Do you guys go over multiple seasons? What happens to a team like Calgary who have a couple of their best prospects in the NCAA and therefore not in the game? Is this league a very large time commitment or relatively casual?

They just finished up the 13 league, I think they made it through 7 seasons. Unfortunately teams lose their NCAA guys and guys in Russia. And since we go off the first roster update some teams get shafted a little worse than others.

As for time commitment, as long as you try and get some of your games in during each sim period if you can noone seems to mind. Just don't drop off the face of the earth without letting us know about it.

Just tried the demo. So much copy paste, and so many stuff not improved. My biggest problem is this:

The passingsystem is so outdated that it almost kills the game for me. Passing is slow, takes too much time, unresponsive and players get caught in slow animations to recive the puck, and during that time the player is "stuck. There is also no real passinganimation to replicate real life passes. The puck travels slow too. This brings down the speed and flow of the game, and it feels really boring.

Also, pretty sure i remember commentator lines/arena announcer lines from NHL 04.

I would go to a midnight release, but I have to work at 8 in the morning, so screw that.
