  1. Wasn't there speculation in real life this season that Chicago wanted to bring in Maxim Shalunov already this Spring but wasn't able to as his current KHL team refused to release him from his contract which is set to expire at the end of April?
  2. EHM Wishlist thread

    Awesome, I haven't downloaded the latest rosters yet.
  3. Hosting Events (i.e. Draft)

    There isn't, the choice of host seems to be random.

    Even though the logic behind giving awards seems weird at times it would be nice to have awards in the World Juniors.
  5. Do correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that what I described in the title shouldn't be possible. I had drafted a Russian player who was playing the KHL with a three (IIRC) year contract, and offered him an NHL contract in January to ensure that he would join me after his Russian contract expires. To my surprise he joined my team in the middle of the season after accepting my offer, abandoning his KHL team.
  6. Players get waived for no reason(?)

    You are above the salary cap, thus making the AI waive players to get you cap compliant.
  7. One of my rotation players got a massive wage increase from arbitration, and I refused to accept it, thus releasing him. But this caused my team a salary cap penalty. Is this really the way it works in real life? I guess technically I did release the player, but I never signed the contract with him in the first place.
  8. When negotiating an extension with a player who demands X amount of money, it seems that if the board limits the salary to something less than X, I'm unable to modify the salary amount at all. It's stuck at the exact maximum amount the board is willing to pay.
  9. In the previous patches the season started with the World Cup in September, but with the current version there wasn't any. Is this WAD?
  10. EHM Wishlist thread

    Would be great if we had the option to manually set line matching, ie. a pull-down menu for each line "Match with opposing line X". Currently the pre-set options don't enable all different combinations.
  11. The game database enables players to have a random PA which differs from each save, so I was wondering if it's possible that a player with a random PA gets a value below his CA at startup?

    Currently when your player is criticized by the media you do get a chance to respond. You can either defend him, agree with the critique or stay silent.
  13. With the new patch my team keeps icing 1 forward and 2 defencemen in OT despite me choosing the "2 forwards" option. Opposing teams seem to be using 2 defenders too.
  14. On the impending NHL expansion

    That's unfortunate, but thanks for the speedy response!
  15. I would like to know if SI (Riz) plans to add the impending NHL expansion to the current game? Could you at the very least tell us if it'll be added in the next patch? I'd like to start a new game, but if Vegas gets added soon(ish) I'd rather wait for it.
