Makes sense.

So will GM's be able to play games in each round in any order, as long as they get played before the commish advances it? Or do they actually need to follow the schedule and sit there until the Anaheim GM (for example) gets online before they can move onto their other games?

Not that tons of people will be inactive, but it seems like there could be plenty of simming going on even without forcing 40 games of it, between GM's not being able to meet online at the right times (**** happens) and not having the AI turned on (I know I won't let the AI play non-simmed games for me).

Example: A game in Oct 15 can be played before a game on Oct 7 if the users on both sides are available to play at the same time.

The Commissioner

Each league will have one Commissioner. The Commissioner will also run a franchise in the league.

The Commissioner creates the league, manages the invitations to the league and confirms join requests. The Commish also sets up the schedule of when the games are to be played and how long each round is. The commissioner can set each round to represent between 3 days and 2 weeks, allowing for more or less playable games per round.

Once the league is up and running the Commissionerís job isnít done. He is the one in control of moving the schedule forward in the league by advancing the league and simulating any games that have not been played to the next round of games. Just like the real NHL, all trades and free agent signings also have to be approved by the league, which in GM Connected falls to the Commissioner.
I like this very much. I <3 you EA.

The Commissioner is not all powerful. If he is abusing his power as Commissioner, the leagueís GMs can vote to have him removed. The GM who initiates the vote, if successful, will then become Commissioner.
This part kinda scares me... Please don't gang up on me guys..

Has anyone talked to the Tampa Bay GM at all? Is he even alive? I might have to give him the boot since hes done nothing.

I would think that's a scenario where you send a PM or something before booting him. He posted his roster and has something in the trade block thread.

I haven't made any trades yet (mostly because I like my team and generally won't move on something unless a player I really value is coming back or I feel it really improves me, very Darcy Regier-esque), but if I weren't posting so much elsewhere I probably wouldn't seem very active either. Don't want to make trades just for the sake of looking active, you know?

I'll think about it. I don't like people quitting on me even if there was only 5 seconds left in the game.

Watch out for his patented slick pass in the slot for an easy tap in or a quick change in angle and wrister top shelf. Also beware of the steady defensive style that will leave you puckless in his zone.

I hope by the time the game comes out, the league will be full and have a healthy reserve list for people to step in immediately if GMs are inactive.

Him and every other random I play in Online Versus. Curious to see if I've learned anything in my 51 levels.

I kept him out of the slot for the most part but his defense is what got to me. Not going to lie, I think I have some really slick hands in NHL (lowkey brag) but dangles dont mean anything when you are playing against him. He's quick on the puck too and good at placing his shots, plus he uses that glitch backhand forehand deke on the weird angle for like 3 of his 5 goals on me. I hate it when I play against someone who is actually a little bit quicker to lift the stick/poke check for the loose puck than me though...
