I'm not I'm desperate, but I did download it cause a girl asked me too. She was hot, but annoying as hell. One of those girls who always wants to talk to you, but never says more than 2-3 word answers.

Yeah, I barely use Skype. I downloaded it for the reason Jack said above.

Hmmm. Maybe...but not sure everyone feels like posting on two forums. I wouldn't mind though.

I have a better idea:

http://www.reddit.com/r/HFHabsGM/

Make a reddit account. Post a topic, anyone can comment, boom we're done.

This is free, and is very easy to moderate. Ask me any questions if you don't understand how to use it.

Basically you:

Submit a link/text, you can either link an image, a video, a website, or just write a post.

People can comment. Best comments can be voted up, worse comments can be voted down. If you prefer, you can set it so it shows the chronological order of comments so you can follow a conversations.

People can post as many topics they want. No limits, go ahead.

Lol no no, I don't want any control, I spend way too much time on HF already. But yeah, we'll use the forum.

I'll probably not even turn it on unless someone on HF tells me to do it.

As soon as you register, I'll make you an admin and you could play around with it. I'm playing NBA 2k12 with my friend (his game now!) so I can't tonight. Also, can't be bothered

The problem with another forum is that if 30 ppl don't join, it ends up messed up. If all 30 join its perfect.

Doesn't that run true for every other option?

I joined the forum. I think it'll get more interest if there is a forum.

Hmm kinda hard to make a trade without seeing the potential grading and such but give your Ian White 84 and Abdelkader 78 for Jamie Benn or Louis Eriksson. It'll give you a top 4 D of all 82s and 84s.

No because ultimately there's still this forum. Live communication does not stop this forum from happening. Creating an entirely new forum would be kind of odd as you may have to post things twice and there's no benefit of live communication.

The idea is, a new option will help. In this case, it may not.

I would sign up, so i'm not complaining but looking at the list, some guys signed up and haven't even logged onto HF since, let alone a new site.

I'll be doing an activity check and if people don't answer within a certain time frame they are getting replaced, that simple.

I get what LL is trying to say. For some people, GM Connected isn't a 24/7 thing that they have to always be up to date on everything.

For geeks like us, it's fun to stay connected via phone/skype/HF, but other people might find it too much of a commitment for what is supposed to be a game aka "fun/leisure time".

Basically, since these people who don't go online 24/7 do come to HF from time to time, we're better off staying on HF than opening up another forum.

I'm open to anything and everything, but it's true that I get the vibe that we wouldn't be 30 people on another forum, since already now we can see taht it'll be the same 10-15 people that will be vocal on the web.

I might consider that for Eriksson, I'll think on it. I do have the winger depth (I have Morrow sitting on line #3 right now), so it's an interesting offer for sure.

I personally don't like the idea of a 29 games season where we play 100% of the games, since it defeats the purpose of building a team that will be good even when you don't control it. Instead of this I prefer playing the same amount of games but in an 82 games season, that way at least you see more of the GM aspect of the game. We could also play twice against people from our division, just to add a little bit of rivalry. 33 games, that would be 40% of the games, which sounds pretty good to me (although it might take 2 months a season including playoffs and offseason, so maybe not ideal). I also don't like the idea of playing against the CPU, because it's not fun and you end up glitching. I prefer simming the rest of the games, and ideally I prefer if everyone plays the same amount of games. I don't mind 2v1 as long as there is no position lock.

As for the forum/skype, if we can't manage to get everyone to join, then we definitely can't manage to make this league happen! Forum sounds good though and I don't think it will be a problem.

If you still need co-comishes I don't mind representing the NW.

You got it. Thanks for the input as well. I have an exam in a few hours so I'll be busy but I read what you said and I agree. My only suggestion is expecting people to play 33 games. 20 minimum seems good. If you can play 40, 50 or 82, perfect.

K, it's time for the activity check.

I want everyone in the league to reply here with their PSN.

Some have already done it and I know them from previous NHLs so they don't need to.

The people i'm EXPECTING to reply are here:


Eastern Conference

Northeast Division

Habs12max - Bruins
scrowe21 - Senators
donghabs98 - Sabres
Koivu2001 - Leafs

Southeast Division

Jeffrey - Panthers
beaverNBFD - Jets
delat88 - Lightning

Atlantic Division

Western Conference

Central Division

durojean - Blue Jackets
Dirty Danglez - Blues

Pacific Division

21gionta21 - Coyotes
HABS_FrEaK - Ducks
FeelsLike93 - Sharks

Northwest Division

David Beckham - Avalanche
Pierre Dagenais - Canucks
tdecheno - Flames

Essentially, half the league needs to step up and post their PSN. I know a lot of you are active so this shouldn't be difficult at all for you guys.

You have until the end (midnight, EST) Wednesday the 22nd of Ausgust to reply. If you do NOT reply by then, you can possibly be removed off the league and replaced. I will be sending PMs to the ones listed above tonight, so you'll have two messages, one in forum and one in private messages. Failure to answer in this thread after that results in the loss of your spot.
