I hope we play long enough to be able to build/rebuild I wouldn't sell the farm

Gamertag? And I was thinking maybe I'd have to approve the trades to keep it reasonable. Or majority? I don't know what do you guys think?

well here is my concern..


say vancouver trades luongo...there is a roster update day 1 of each NHL release...and u need to use EA's rosters in GM connected.

Now RL vancouver trades lou to lets say Fla...how does that trade get reflected in the game ?

I'm thinking if we make a trade prior to release and a peice of that trade gets moved IRL we gotta veto it.

I wanted to touch on this so I will do it here. My opinion is that we should make a timetable do that we will at least get through 5 seasons (if not more) before nhl14 comes out. A huge part of the fun in this for me personally will be the trading deadlines, drafting and just overall building of the teams. Anyone else wanna chime in?

Not sure how we would do what your saying. I'd say as long as people are making honest trades then let them build their teams how they want to. Not being a D but just saying it how I see it.

Id say no trades prior to release but two GMs can agree to a trade barring those players are still on their teams come game release. Then whoever is on your team on day 1 of the game is on your team. Whoever picked Vancover picked them knowing Lou is still on their team right now.

I agree with this 5 seasons is a lot but I would wanna do 2+ at least, remember now with the new AI and team strategys they added having the computer play for you at times won't be the worst idea and you have 82 games in a season a couple of sim'd games isn't gonna ruin your season who knows you might win a couple with good management and strats. The whole point of a franchise mode is to build and think past season 1.

Teams are filled I'm going to do the random draw for Devils now. I pretty much can't win cause I'm sure people will say I rigged it so I'll just randomize everyone else's name that wanted in.

Probably the best way to go about it.

I agree 100% the trade should be veto'd if the trade is done prior to release and that player isn't on your team when the game is released. By all means tho have trade talks because that situation won't be that common.

Throw your name in too, that wouldn't be fair to you.

well yeah, but we could still trade luongo at the start of our season even if he ends up getting traded at the deadline, for example

and we can trade whoever we want, whenever we want, but we dont want to kill our teams, so we wont give people iginla for doughty forexample :B

So in the two season scenario we are going to make each season take about 6 months of real time to get through? IMO that seems too drawn out. At least say each NHL season is 3 months or 2 months real time is my vote.

a month and a half is my vote, we'd get through 8 seasons, so players we have now will both retire and develop so its worth investing in prospects untill the later seasons

if we have 4 seasons, players we draft may never get into any lineup in time

Very true. The more seasons, the better for me because of what I stated earlier. I personally just know I won't be playing all of my games because I like the other aspects of the game too. Plus I picked Edmonton because I wanted a team to build. If we do 2 seasons I'm kinda screwed

There were 12 items in your list. Here they are in random order:

1-jepstein30
2-Number1Newb
3-ScottyK
4-harcklfr
5-xxx OVOXO xxx
6-Silkymits
7-Bellis25
8-DP 25
9-Hell Zeon
10-Shiva Kamini
11-Tynbomb
12-Wedgeskywalker
Timestamp: 2012-08-08 02:24:45 UTC

Jepstein30 is the winner of the Devils

He was the Tampa Bay Lightning so we need one to fill TB you can switch if you want but it's not ideal. A new member that's willing to take the lightning is ideal.

Congrats jepstein30!!!

I agree I would love to go for as long as we possibly can. It will only get better the longer we go.
