Supposedly there are "Franchise" players, but I've yet to see one.

update from my last post: http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh...&postcount=262


I couldn't handle all the injuries. I lost Jagr and Scandella a few games after my last update and had to call up a few more prospects in an already injury plagued team. I finished the season 40-35-7.

My farm team is doing well, finishing their season 43-28-5. At the end of the NHL season I sent down Brodin, Gustaffson (prospect, not the nhl goalie), palmieri, granlund (2way no waivers lol), fontaine.
Currently doing the playoffs with them.

Will update after all offseason activities.

I really don't think there are. I scouted a guy heavily and he was a 5 star player. After the draft, he was a 5 green star player, but was never listed as a "Franchise player". He was 96 overall as a 20 year old(better than Crosby). If that's not a franchise player, I don't know what is.

Certainly looking that way in the moment, was in the top 5 (the Avs) in the league in terms of fewest goals against, so goaltending hasn't been an issue in my first year, just at the other end.

In my second season with the Maple Leafs, Toronto made the playoffs for the first time since 2003-2004 with a record of 47-31-4, 5th in the Eastern Conference.

In the first round of the playoffs the Maple Leafs took on 4th seeded Tampa Bay. Despite taking a 3-1 series lead, injuries to Tomas Vokoun, Nazem Kadri, and Joffrey Lupul caught up to Toronto and the Lightning won the series 4-3.

Buffalo would end up winning the Stanley Cup 4-2 over Vancouver, with Ryan Miller winning playoff MVP.

Going into year three:

James van Riemsdyk (87) Joe Thornton (88) Phil Kessel (88)
Joffrey Lupul (84) Nazem Kadri (82) Bobby Ryan (86)
Ryane Clowe (82) Joe Colbourne (79) Chuck Kobasew (77)
Colin Greening (75) Jay McClement (78) Carter Ashton (75)
Dion Phaneuf (89) Jake Gardiner (86)
John-Michael Liles (85) Andrew Ference (82)
Wade Redden (76) Morgan Rielly (82)
Tomas Vokoun (87)
Martin Biron (77)

I play every game wondering what u guys think I should do
First - fix the blueline. Phaneuf, Franson, and Gardiner are all good bets for guys that you want to keep around because they develop nicely. Keep in mind Reilly is good to go by year 2. So ideally you are looking for two bottom 6 Dmen. Try finding shut down Dmen (guys with defensive awareness of 85+ who have great Defensive attributes).

Second - sort out your centers. Grabo simulates horribly. You can either put him in a package and try and land a good #2 center, or go big and grab that number 1 and keep Kadri as your #2. That's what I would do.


Goaltending is fine, and secondary scoring is fine.

EDIT - Just read that you play through all your games. The first thing I would do is start simulating a few games just to see how good a team is that you've put together. By playing games, you don't really begin to figure that out in truth; an average team can beat a great team as long as you are playing. Plus, playing with Reimer early on is very frustrating

While franchise players are generated in the draft, they are never listed as franchise players on the scouting report.

They are normally listed as top 5, and can be distinguished by having 5-white stars normally.

When drafted, they will normally be either a 4.5-green or 5-green (although I've never seen a 5-green before).

In one of my recent beagms I drafted a center named Donald Campoli who was an 85 straight from the draft.

Regular Season Report

Record: 40-34-8
Position: 4th in Northwest Division - 8th in Western Conference - 17th in NHL

That was tight. We were in 9th place with 5 regular season games to go, and posted a 3-2-0 record at the end to sneak into the playoffs, just beating divisional rivals Minnesota to the mark. We lost the last game at home at Detroit, leaving the Wild an opportunity to overtake us based on regulation wins (they needed a win to tie on points) however luckily for us they lost, giving the Avs a playoff berth.

Our scoring improved slightly towards the end, as we ended 27th in the league with 192 goals. Defensively there were a couple of frailties due to a lot of injuries, however we finished 4th in the league with 197 against.

Special teams wise we were poor on the powerplay yet solid on the kill, finishing 27th and 4th in the respective categories.

Corey Perry finished as the top scorer in the team with 22 goals and 36 assists in 80 contests, split between the Avs and the Ducks. Paul Stastny scored the most goals with a career-high 33 goals in 82 games, and Andrew Ladd led the team with 37 assists in 79 outings.

Both goaltenders played their part over the season, with both posting GAA's below 2.5 and saved over 92% of shots faced on them in the season.

Going into the playoffs we meet 1st placed LA Kings, and we will be doing everything we can to knock off the defending champions and start a kind of run LA did themselves the year before.

Minor Watch
29 year old right-winger Bill Thomas led the team in goals and points, with 30 and 61 respectively in 76 contests. Mike Connolly led the team with 33 helpers to go along with 22 goals in 76 games.

Playoffs
Los Angeles Kings 4 - 0 Colorado Avalanche
The Kings dominated the series from start to finish, sweeping the Avalanche, proving that last years effort was certainly no fluke.

For the Avalanche offense was provided by Stastny and Perry, both notching 4 points in 4 games.

However despite the early elimination its certainly a step in the right direction just for making the playoffs this year.

GM Review
We were expected to win 35 games this year, and managed 40, so they were happy enough, bit of a bummer to get swept in the playoffs but I wasn't going to play purely because it was the playoffs.

Our AHL team the Lake Erie Monsters managed to win the Calder Cup after finishing 1st in the league, which was a great sentiment to the depth in the organization at the moment.

Off Season News

I've drafted ok I think and have secured a young goaltender with stacks of potential to possibly take Giguere's place in the next year or two, giving Varlamov a young goalie to battle out for the starters role.

Mike Connolly, an instrumental part of my successful AHL side last season has improved dramatically, earning a place on this year's roster. Mark Olver has also improved after a few on and off season in the NHL. Both young players have earned third line places this year alongside veteran Milan Hejduk, who is fit and ready after missing half of last season due to injury.

In defence Cameron Gaunce has won a place on the Avs roster this year after impressing in the AHL. Hot in the wings are Stefan Elliot and Tyson Barrie, who also both performed well in the AHL, and took their opportunities well in the NHL when given it.

Forwards
Gabriel Landeskog - 85 Matt Duchene - 85 Corey Perry - 88
Andrew Ladd - 83 Paul Stastny - 85 PA Parenteau - 81
Mike Connolly - 79 Mark Olver - 80 Milan Hejduk - 78
Daniel Winnik - 78 Ryan O'Reilly - 81 Steve Downie - 80

Defence
Ryan Wilson - 77 Erik Johnson - 87
Jan Hejda - 81 Cameron Gaunce - 77
Shane O'Brien - 77 Greg Zanon - 77

Goaltenders
Semyon Varlamov - 84
Atte Engren - 77

Ok, so I just started as the 'hawks, two months in...wow load times on the PS3 are obscene, and so are the amt of injuries...what a pain!

My 1st two trades were:

CGY: D-Adam Clendenning
CHI: F-Jarome Iginla

I needed a replacement for Pat Sharp out 6 wks with a concussion. Surprised CGY took this, might be tight cap-wise when Sharpie comes back.

Trade #2:

BUF: Marcus Kruger+2013 1st
CHI: Mikael Grigorenko

So, I'm tight on picks for the draft, but have my team, IMO, in a good spot. Might hafta do a partial sell at the draft to score some picks.

Who are the steals in the '13 draft? I've seen Dubeau be a franchise G in the older roster updates...same here? Typical to CHI, I'm hurting for prospects in net in particular.

Had to stop my nearly 15 year dynasty. It gets outrageous with the players demanding huge amounts of money and not even coming close to living up.

I saw harktitkenin or whatever his name is from the Oilers in free agency, wanted something like 3.8 million as a 34 year old(83 overall) who had scored a grand total of 17.9 points per season(800 some odd games and 190 points). Then, the guy under him wanted about 3.1 million as a 36 year old who had about 35-45 points every year. The latter one is at least in the ball park of fair. Money that these guys get/want should be based on production and not OVR.

Pretty good dynasty though, would like to finish it but like I said, got tedious. Mackinnon was 31 years old, 91 overall and had near 1000 points. Typical year for him was 40+45 or 55. Best year was something like 45+64. Drouin was 32 and had over 100 points, a consistent 25-30 goal guy and 60+ assists. The last five years he had 65+. Best year was 28+84. Mack Shields, my random goalie(who btw, when I started another dynasty to look for him in the draft, wasn't even in the top 200 ranked) had a pretty sick career. Was only 31 and was closing in on 500 wins. First season at 19 he had 30 wins, and then he had 9 years of 40+ wins. GAA was all over the place, had a few years of 2.06-2.10 and had a few of 2.40-2.45. About 90 shutouts.

Both of my Blues GM modes, he has turned into an offensive force. Both times he had 95+ in every shooting category and just racked up goals. He might not work out for you, but if he has a low trade value, I'd go after him.

I had Rattie on my dynasty for about..6 years. Traded for him when he was I THINK 26. He was just coming off a 40 some odd Rocket Richard winning year. Playing with Mackinnon and Drouin, he put up about 65-high 70's each year. Was always at least 20 goals, topped out at low 40's once or twice.

Pretty good numbers considering Mackinnon and Drouin were doing most of the scoring.

I believe he was an 81 overall during the third season, and I had him on the third line right wing. The fourth season he was 85 overall with the ridiculous offensive category and I played him on the first line RW and 1st PP unit. The other guys on his line were Jaden Schwartz(who becomes an absolute stud passer) and the center was Patrik Berglund, who really isn't anything too special at that point in the franchise. That line carried my team to the Cup.

For anyone who's completed a 25 season GM, at what point do you suppose draft picks become totally irrelevant, and nothing more than trade bait?

Haven't finished yet, but I figure year 20 at the latest. If you need to develop draft picks during that year you are in bad shape...

Too many 80's I'm seeing, you guys should use the Revamped roster, where all the ratings have been redone, way better playing experience and there's a difference. You won't have an 80 on a 4th line, great for playing as you notice the attribute differences.

My Devils team is performing ridiculously.

My 5th regular season. 60-21-1. I play every sixth game but I lost 3 points (including the 1). Phil Kessel had 104 points and won the Hart. He leveled up from 89-90.

Won the Cup for the 3rd straight year, but that's not that surprising with my game setup (playing all home games in the playoffs). Had a minor scare against the Canes, in the Conference Semis, where I lost Game 2 for a 1-1 split, but then they got decimated in the sim games 3-4, and that was that.

Season 6. They are currently 22-3-0. I've seen nutty things like this with the AHL teams before, but never with the NHL teams.
