The Flames feel pretty bad for dealing Iginla, but the players we are receiving are young and will help the team in the near future.
Accepted. Nice trading with you.

Other then that I commend you
I got Kane for Subban and Bourque, so while I lose a very good PMD, I still get an amazing young forward. Don't know if you mixed me with wpggrown though. x]
But Kane - Galchenyuk - Pacioretty are gonna destroy this defense in a few seasons.

Was just quoting you so the names of his dmen were right there in front of my face. Not a bad future line, I give it 2-3 years before they are an effective unit. Note the word unit, not players. As individuals they will progress at different rates, I think Galy won't be quite ready for that line as Kane and Patches are ready now.

That's sure. We still don't know how prospect progression work, but I hope Galchenyuk will top at around 87 - I hope for a 4.5 stars rating for him), and that he will be 80 within 2 or 3 seasons.

That's sure. There will be some unexpected players at the top I think. I will try everything to have at least a PPG player (Pleks, Patches or Kane for instance). I'm planning to have my top-2 lines as following - unless I make a trade.
Kane - Plekanec - Gionta
Pacioretty - Desharnais - Cole
With the possibility I switch Patches and Gionta if things do not go as expected.

Ahah yeah, that's what I meant... I remember when NHL12 came out and that I played online games a lot (like 2 or 3 per night)... Gomez had a point almost every game... he had like a 1.5 PPG with me. On the other hand, I couldn't find any ways to get a lot of points with Plekanec.

Funny you mention Gomez rocking it, because I plan on making him earn his pay cheque haha. I'm going to start him on the 3rd between 2 shooters in Prospal and Atkinson, but Columbus' lines can easily be rotated, so he may even get to use his speed in the top 6 at points. I think 10 goals out of him is a reasonable expectation.

Had to be done given how pitifully low the Avs' Defense is rated

I hope Bouwmeester and Johnson are ready to play 50 minutes a game

And 70 assists ? To be honest, if we play like 20-30 games a season (one per day), it shouldn't be hard to get assists. As I said, when YOU play - and not let the sim engine do his job - and that you have some skills, you can score with pretty much any player.

But generally you can score more with your better players. Of course you can get on a hot streak with a player or score a couple with him in a game. I just don't see though George Parros in the top 10 in scoring

i know we want this league to be as active as possible so i think we should figure out the minimum amount of games that need to be played and simmed, i think you should be able to play 50-70 games per season, i dont think thats to unreasonable

It would be nice to play that many games a month, but I work full-time, have classes on the side, and can only play a few days a week. I could personally do about 20-30.

In a month? I doubt it. Most likely half the games will be simmed

you can have it so the scheduled playing period is 3 days to 2 weeks, i think we should figure out a time that all of us can play a majority of our games or we could agree that if one player has to work or has other commitments that if the other gm is available they can just play vs the cpu

Schedule will be way to intense, we will see how the first season goes and take it from there. We do not even know how EA planned to make this work, lets wait and see.

i have a feeling that there will be players in the top 20 in scoring that shouldn't be. Going to be a very interesting first season as well as all the others we play!

I think it will be players that are unknown but still skilled that are in the top 20. I don't think we'll see any pure grinders or tough guys up there

I would like if they had some sort of matchmaking, where you can just go to a quick start game which finds anyone else in the league that is on at the same time. Make a limit of maybe 5-8 times per season though so the same two teams don't play each other a bunch.

I'm also fine with you guys playing my CPU team, just try not to run up the score
They have a way you can set your teams strategies for when the CPU plays for you, and if we put the difficulty up high I think we'll all feel pretty confident that if our team is being played against, they'll put up a decent fight.

i think leaving it at all-star is best because if we up it higher then guys who don't play get rewarded if they arent as good as their opponent. it also makes it more important to be as active as possible

Personnally, I think people should at least play a minimum of 7 games a week. That's about 1 game per day, or it could be done by playing a bunch one night we have nothing to do. Would be possible to play more, but that should be the minimum, as I think a lot of us have to deal with both school and work, and some might even be in several GM Connected, then, in my case, if there is no lock-out I have to watch pretty match all 82 Canadiens games, and I will also work on the Ultimate Rosters again.

In my case I will probably not play any game on Friday evenings and maybe on Wednesday evenings too (As I work after school until 9 PM on Wednesdays and I wake up at 6:30 AM the next day, and I work until 11 PM on Fridays, so...), but when I'm in I can easily play 2 to 4 games a day. That is unless my brother takes control of the PS3 (yes we share it, and he's the kind of guy that plays COD and BF :'()
