I'm just baffled that they actually took players out of the game.

From what I noticed, Saad and Yakupov were not on their NHL team, AHL team, CHL team or free agency, I don't know how many more players from the game disappeared.

Also, I know they won't but they goofed on call names of added players. Playing as the WBS Penguins, Bennett's call is "Boyes" and Dumoulin's call is Boynton I know they won't fix it, and it's not really a big deal at all, just weird.
They had to take players out of the game due to licensing issues, once a player plays in the KHL they are no longer covered under the CHL license (in the case of Nail Yakupov). Once he left the CHL EA could no longer use his name or likeness in the game until he signed under a license that EA has.

I think that's because all of the play-by-play names match their real names, even if they don't exist in the game, when really they should have no play-by-play name.
Since some of the names don't exist, you just get random names from the database.
I've heard Afinogenov and Arkhipov, for example.

I'd guess it's just laziness on their part and they copied and pasted all last names to the play-by-play field.

..and yet, they've been in violation of their own licensing policy for over a month.

They've been kind of lazy. Yakupov is still a 62 overall.

Just came to say the same thing - new rosters are out.

Will be checking the thread for about half an hour so if anyone wants me to check what players are in leemme know.

Edit - Tarasenko is a stud; 81 overall and 4.5 gold star potential.

Just downloaded the update. Here are some of the rookies:

Yakupov - 62 overall, 4.5 yellow stars
Schultz - 81 overall, 4.5 yellow stars
Tarasenko - 81 overall, 4.5 yellow stars
Brunner - 60 overall, 4 yellow stars
Rakell - 59 overall, 4 yellow stars
Hamilton - 67 overall, 4.5 yellow stars
Grigorenko - 64 overall, 4.5 yellow stars
Saad - 62 overall, 3.5 yellow stars
Atkinson - 70 overall, 4 yellow stars
Nyquist - 75 overall, 4.5 yellow stars
Huberdeau - 69 overall, 4.5 yellow stars
Granlund - 75 overall, 4.5 yellow stars
Galchenyuk - 63 overall, 4.5 green stars
Matteau - 59 overall, 4 yellow stars
Zibanejad - 69 overall, 4 yellow stars
Laughton - 60 overall, 4 yellow stars
Schwartz - 65 overall, 4 yellow stars
Conacher - 71 overall, 4 yellow stars
Komarov - 65 overall, 2.5 yellow stars
Schroeder - 72 overall, 3.5 yellow stars
Scheifele - 70 overall, 4.5 yellow stars

Most of these guys were already in the game, I just thought I'd post them in case there were any changes made in their overall ratings/potential.

Fistric is now on Edmonton and Redden on St. Louis. They also added Gomez to SJ, and changed his cap hit to $700K. Not bad considering that happened today.

Looks like they did a pretty solid job, looking at it from a prospect POV.
Bärtschi is back, Tarasenko and Yakupov are in the game, and they even look to have updated CHL rosters to reflect trade deadline movement (with the exception of Ferland to Saskatoon, who is on Abbotsford anyways).
They're still missing a few kids that left the NCAA to play in the CHL, but that's fine I guess since the rest of the update is pretty solid.

There are some small errors that I've noticed, though.
Tyler Biggs' rights don't belong to the Leafs and Zemgus Girgensons was added but does not belong to Buffalo.
They also missed Stephen MacAulay being traded from Saint John to Halifax.

Did they change a tuner update or attributes?

Giroux at full steam getting blown past by Volchenkov isn't right.

Whole flyers team felt like skating in mud

Can anyone tell me if Yakupov has his real face or is it generic one. Also I remember Justin Schultz getting scanned at the Rookie showcase for EA. Side note, I always edit Yakupov to be atleast a 77 overall since he went 1
