So I have encountered a problem ... I've done a huge roster overhaul, editing prospects, I created nhl draft prospects such as Kevin Fiala, Alex Tuch, Dylan Larkin etc.and placed them on teams that hold their CHL rights.
For some reason all the prospects are locked in with Anaheim as their pro team and it will not let me change it. The draft year remains as undrafted as it should, I ran a test season to see how the draft would shake out and for some reason none of the created prospects were in the draft but after the draft they all appeared on Anaheim roster. How do I fix this so it doesn't happen again?
When you create players, you should make them 18 or older. After creating them, find them in Free Agency and Edit them to be the correct age. That's how it used to work in like NHL12, so hopefully that will work again.
The panthers fired GM Dale Tallon and proceeded to hire GM Zero. The new Manager has very little experience and comes as a shock hire to most fans,pundits and fellow executives alike.
His opening press release read very interesting quotes.
"We finished last place in 12-13. We obviously want to improve and build off that.
We have nice pieces in place like Huberdeau,Bjugstad,Barkov,Gudbranson,Kulikov and veteran pieces like Boyes,Campbell and Luongo."
"My goal? The cup. Now, will that happen over night? Of course not, but I do feel that with the right moves our team could challenge for the playoffs in a relatively weak conference."
"We have a glut of prospects and top young players who all have massive potential. We want to squeeze every ounce of potential out of them, and that falls in our development department which needs work."
The new GM wasted no time in beginning to build a better team. His 3rd day in office saw him complete a deal with the Chicago Blackhawks. The Panthers acquired 22 year old forward Andrew Shaw in exchange of veteran Thomas Kopecky.
Zero then moved Scott Gomez,a 2016 3rd and an unsigned prospect to Anaheim for forward Nick Bonino.
"These two moves add relatively young forwards with great contracts and give us alot of maneuverability to insulate our youngsters and upgrade our forward's at the NHL level."
He then made another ploy to get Colin Greening from Ottawa in exchange for Tom Gilbert and a 3rd in 2015.
"He's got size and a nice contract. He's like Bonino and Shaw. Good pieces with potential who can help protect our kids"
And the biggest move of the day was picking up Jaromir Jagr from the New Jersey Devils in exchange for prospects Marc Mancari and 3 mid round picks.
"Jagr is a legend. He'll help our kids on and off the ice. Many look up to him, and haing him alongside some of our kids will be a great addition"
Zero completed an active day by signing free agent goalie Rick DiPietro to a 1 year $1.5M contract.
The Panthers are 30-20-8 at the All-star break and are 2nd in the Atlantic division.
In a radio interview Zero made important points:
-The youngsters are doing great. Barkov,Bjugstad,Kulikov,Huberdeau...
-Bonino fits well and is a big part of the scoring depth
-He likes the way the team is laid out. 3 scoring lines and a tough,energy 4th line.
-Defense has been average. Could look to make moves to upgrade
-Jagr has been a revelation and is a big part of Barkov's success
-Luongo has been great
Fleischmann leads the team in points with 38. Here's the top 5:
Over the past couple years, there have been talks of Seattle gaining a professional hockey team. In order for that to happen, a current team must be relocated, and that team is the Edmonton Oilers. In the process, the Oilers have also fired head coach Dallas Eakins, who was brought in last season, and lead them to a horrendous record of 29-44-9. Edmonton also fired General Manager Craig MacTavish, who coached the team since 1999. He lead the Oilers to one Stanley Cup Finals, which was in the 2005-2006 season. Edmonton would go on to lose in the Finals to the Carolina Hurricanes.
With the firing of Craig MacTavish, the Oilers have agreed to terms with Captain Nutjob, who has a lot of experience in the NHL. He has managed a couple of teams such as the Buffalo Sabres, Anaheim Ducks, and the Winnipeg Jets. With Dallas Eakins being fired, the Oilers have hired the best player of all time. 'The Great One' Wayne Gretzky. Gretzky played on the Edmonton Oilers for 10 years, leading them to 4 Stanley Cups.
Obviously since the Edmonton Oilers are moving to a new city, they are no longer called the Edmonton Oilers. From here on out, they will be known as the Seattle Spartans. Rather than the orange and blue that the Oilers have been using, they will now be wearing green and black.
- I didn't want to call them the Seattle Spartans. But it works I guess.
- I will post some pictures of the jerseys later...maybe. Too tired right now.

The panthers ended the season on a disappointing note and look to improve on their 2nd round exit from last year.
The draft came and went with Florida making two note worthy picks:
Michael Dal Colle 18th overall 4 gold stars LW PLY 66 overall
Julius Honka 71st overall 4.5 red stars RHD OFD 65 overall
Kulikov 2 years $2.8M AAV
Gudbranson 1 year $2.07M AAV
Pirri 1 year $0.9M AAV
Robak 2 years $0.7M AAV
Dustin Penner 4 years $2.2M AAV
Daniel Paille 1 year $1.4M AAV
Nikolai Kulemin 5 years $2M AAV
Vernon Fiddler 3 years $1.7M AAV
Nikita Nikitin 5 years $3.37M AAV
Brian Elliot 2 years $1.45M AAV
Tyler Myers 86 overall TWD
Dylan Olsen 77 overall DFD
Jimmy Hayes 80 overall PWF
Scott Upshall 79 overall TWF
2015 2nd round pick
Joey Crabb 78 overall TWF
Anaheim 2nd round pick 2015
Brad Boyes 82 overall SNP
McFarland 65 overall PLY 3.5 green stars
"The goal remains the same as least year. Playoffs." he firmly stated
"We've added alot of guys who I think help us make the playoffs and challenge for the division. Our offense was lack-luster at times this year and I've gone out and picked up guys who bring a lot to the table in Kulemin and Penner, we also added Berglund and Perron for scoring depth."
"Our Defense is improved and we have legitimate depth and a very good transition Defense with lots of size and toughness back there"
"we also improved in the minors so I think it was a very productive summer for us"
I should make my stuff more organized like Kellogs, but I'm too lazy and have no idea how to do that stuff.
The hard part is setting it up the first time/figuring out how you want to format things. Once that's done, you just save a template to a txt file and fill in the blanks afterwards. To figure out a formatting trick that another poster does, just quote their post and see what they've done and play around with it
