Is there a way to get Grigorenko on your roster in Be a Gm mode this year?

He should be there. They gave him terrible potential though. Like 3rd line scorer max potential (lol).

I'm having trouble adjusting the game play speed. I always like to turn up the speed a few clicks.

Anyone know where I do this?? I can't seem to find it (if it's even there!).

Well, they couldn't half-ass Sherbrooke since they didn't exist last year.
They couldn't leave all of the aged out 21 year olds on their roster and stuff, so they had to take some time and create the rookies a couple months early.

I also love so many prospects don't have pictures.
Of course one of the only 2013 '95 prospects to have a picture is Curtis Lazar, noted Canucks fan and BC native.
As I've said before, the fact that they can deliver updated board ads to the game but can't update things like portraits is just hilarious.
They have their priorities in the wrong place.

He'll be there, but I think you have to apply the roster update first.
A lot (possibly all) of the 2012 prospects have no draft information attached to them on the on-disc roster even though the gold master was finished about eight weeks after the draft.

checking=gone but pokechecking = in.....also offensive razzle dazzle for lack of better terms i.e cool stick handling is gone because as soon as u come within 3-5 ft of a defender u lose the puck unless u are literally kopitar or crosby.

In GM mode I hate that every time the play stops the cpu switches lines. I suppose this could be remedied by playing on a higher skill level but im not there.

also in be a gm mode the trade proposals are literally daily and terrible lol

Yeah, Grigorenko should be in the QMJHL unless you started the season with him on the roster. He's not AHL eligible yet, so those are his only 2 options and you can't recall him midseason like an AHL prospect. Armia is on the AHL roster in the game because EA is still too dumb to figure out how Europe works, but he would be AHL eligible now since he wasn't drafted out of the CHL.

Does anyone else think that simulations in "Be a GM" mode take for freaking ever? Is there any way to speed that up?

You can go to edit teams and add him. I edited a number of players, added the ones that weren't on alreay like Grigorenko and Pysyk, and created Girgensons and put them on the Rochester roster before I started GM mode. I made Armia, Grigs, Pysyk, Foligno, and McNabb better and increased there potential.

Where'd you bump them to? I hate doing too much of that because it feels like cheating, but some of them were just so far off. Armia and Grigs having "3rd line scorer" ceilings? Give me a break.

I cheated a lot, but whatever, it's not online so I don't care. Foligno and McNabb I made 78's with 4 stars. Girgs, pysyk and Arima I made 70's with 4.5 stars, and Grigs I made a 71 with 5 stars.

The Sabres home jerseys are way too blue in my opinion.

Careful, from what I read, players jump up fast in this game. One article blog I read stated that Morgan Reilly went from 60s to 70's to 90's in 3 seasons. The game apparently factors in injuries and player development (assistant coach and roles on the team) impact development.

I still want to know if anyone knows, havent found it yet, What the stars for potential equate to?

Five stars - generational talent?
4.5 - 1st line top 2 d?
4 stars - top 6 top 4 d?
3.5 stars - 2-3rd line guy 4-5 d?
3 stars - Bottom 6 5 or 5 d?
2.5 star - AHL call up / Fringe NHLER?
2 stars - AHL?
1.5 stars - ahl back up
1 star - bust AHL back up
.5 star - bust, ahl back up / retirement from hockey?

Curious to your opinons

As far as I can tell, the stars are basically:
5- generational
4.5- above average 1st liner/top pairing D/elite goalie
4- above average 2nd liner to average 1st liner/top 4 D/starting goalie
3.5- 2nd liner or great 3rd liner/top 6 D/not as good a starting goalie?
3- bottom 6 F/bottom pairing D/back-up
2.5- 4th liner to good AHLer/depth D/crappy back-up or minor starter
2- decent to good AHL players
1.5- nothing below this is even worth having on your AHL roster other than as a depth option

I think they've gotten the stat changes right this game (some really high draft picks become solid nhl players in a couple of years and you don't have to keep them in the ahl for a really long time) but you probably want to change star potential. from what i've heard, guys like foligno, armia, mcnabb, and pysyk all have 2.5-3.5 stars, which is a bit off IMO.
I'd rank them:
Girgs=3.5
Grigs=4/4.5
Armia=4
Foligno=3/3.5
McNabb=3.5
Pysyk=3.5
Adam=3 (not too sure where to put him, as he's a top six or bust type guy)
Catenacci=3
not sure what other prospects the sabres might have in the game

I did the same originally, the only problem is that they all command huge contracts and you cant keep them

I made Ennis and Hodgson 78 OVR with 4.5 potential and both wanted $7,000,000 after the first year.

I ended up starting a realistic game, 2-1 so far in preseason

As much as I dig the more realistic stuff, I find myself getting rather frustrated. The online games seem like their decided more by luck than ever. Probably just need to get better I guess.

I'm about to go play, I only played once yesterday. I'm gonna add all the Gamertags mentioned here. Everyone else keep 'em (or your PS3 username) coming. It'd be more fun to play against you guys than totally random people, imo. And if anyone has a league or wants to start one, whether GM connected or team play, let me know.

He's already there in the Q with his rights belonging to Buffalo so all you have to do in your franchise is sign him and assign him, though I bet he's already under contract in the roster update. He has a good decent overall rating (64) but a poor potential. You can only edit players afaik before starting the franchise so be sure to edit him and alter his potential. I never start a franchise w/o tweaking hte potentials of Sabres and some leaguewide prospects.

I did Buffalo's prospects as:
Grigorenko = 4.5 yellow
Girgensons = 3.5 yellow
Armia = 4 yellow
Foligno = 3 green
Pysyk = 3.5 yellow
JGL = 4 red (because I feel like he's a boom/bust kind of guy)
Cat/Adam = 3 yellow
McNabb = 3.5 or 4 (I forget which) yellow

I agree what the default rosters have for them is a bit whack. I usually edit a lot of the prospects in the game though, and create the ones that aren't there (like Jones, Tarasenko, Girgs, etc.).
