  1. Your goal difference is the same. Two goals for and two goals against. Third tie breaker, IRL, is higher number of goals for (both are two). Fourth tie breaker is the number of away goals scored. The other team scored one away goal, your team did not.
  2. Used to, but as I've gotten older, more active, and more heavily leaned on at work, I find playing time hard to come by.
  3. Enjoying the full release, thus far. A few things that could use improvement Scouting Assignments: Something more fluid and informative. It's difficult to maintain good scouting coverage. Would be nice if there was some scheduling that allowed you assign a series of teams, competitions, et al to a scout so they continue to have work. Scouting Reports: Particularly for the drafts, would be nice if the scouting reports could be retained in some way. If you have scouts that were assigned to the the NHL Draft, but reassign them, the reports disappear and you have no reference for them from the main draft screen. Shortlisting: Would be great to have multiple shortlists. Training: Some sort of progression tracker; even as simple as exporting an xml or csv of the visible player attributes so that differentials could be performed outside of the game.
  4. The truth is we have one capable DM.
  5. Three years, four months, and twenty-three days between join date and your first post. That's pretty impressive. And I agree that there should be a cancel option.
  6. The latest update indicates a change to player attribute generation and progression.
  7. How many times in real life has an RFA signed with another team? Hint, it's not often.
  8. Snap up young players before their 18th birthday and train them up. Either they make the grade, with Home Grown status; or they don't and you can sell them off for a profit.
  9. Thanks. Also, I didn't mean immediately, but at your leisure. Enjoy vacation.
  10. Could you do some posts demonstrating prospect/new-gen development under 15.3?
  11. Agreed, I made a trade for Drew Doughty and got a notification indicating first that the fans were upset with the trade, then that the fans were eager to see Drew Doughty in action. I gave up Michael Parks (3rd line RW), Samuel Morin (#6/7 defender and improving), and Callum Booth (blue chip G prospect) for Doughty and a 2nd round pick.
  12. Once there is an editor, you'll be able to do that here. The game has been publicly available for one month, as an early access beta. Slow your roll and be patient. Additional functionality will come, from SI or third-party developers. Additionally, to accurately simulate simulation cap fluctuation, an economic model would have to be developed. Of the things to implement in the game, that would be a higer demand of a limited resource (dedicated time from the developer). Many of us would rather the "on-ice" product improved, as well as the more tactics engine, trade models, AI squad management, scouting, training, and player progression models. Having a static cap and relatively static wage demands are acceptable, for the time being.
  13. Would be nice to see more fanfare around championships and awards. Aesthetic, but certainly helps immersion. Fans are pretty fickle. I stole Drew Doughty from cap-strapped LA. After confirmation, I received three news items. Two stated that the fans and the board were upset with the trade, accusing me of poor asset management. The third was the fans being excited about the acquisition of Drew Doughty. My reaction: http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/2589361/wuhwhat_medium.gif Los Angeles acquires Callum Booth: 21 years old, goalie prospect. Highly rated, but surplus to my needs after acquiring Olle Eriksson Ek Samuel Morin: 23 year old stay at home defender, with room to grow. Michael Parks: 26 year old right winger, scored 15 goals and 17 assists in 59 games the previous season. Philadelphia acquires Drew Doughty: 29 years old star defender Los Angeles' 2019 second round draft pick
  14. Not after a game has been started. All finances are static in the game. No cap increase, no ridiculous salary inflation.
