Hello, everybody! For the first time ever, the NHL series will be offering a true online franchise experience in NHL 13 with the new GM Connected mode. Multiple season progression, rookie scouting, blockbuster trades, free agency, AHL management, you name it. It's FINALLY going to be online! That makes this our chance to have a real, serious league for the first time.


I know there are a lot of hockey fans out there, and I'd love to have a full league. I only ask that people only sign up if they're serious about contacting opponents, scheduling games, and communicating in the thread. This is our opportunity to have something similar to the Madden and NCAA leagues on CAG, and can definitely be a lot of fun if people are committed to it.


If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, feel free to sign up and pick your favorite team!


League Rules and Policies

In general, the NHL series needs less guidelines than some of the other sports leagues. But there are still some areas people need to be aware of.

Also, I didn't add Brandon or Alan yet because I wasn't sure if either of them would have a desire to play as Colorado, lol. I'm still waiting on the wrestling match in ice cream sandwich pudding. ;)

And with that, the first division rivalry is born, haha. I think it's awesome that this will finally incorporate CPU teams (as opposed to the strictly user vs user leagues that NHL had before). I vote for putting the CPU difficulty on the highest setting. At least that way, if divisions happen to be unbalanced, nobody will be getting any easy wins.

What's really funny to me is how the favorite teams of the CAG Hockey Team's "regulars" are all in different divisions. You'd think we set it up that way so we can all meet in the playoffs, lol.

I'm down for filling in as the Edmonton Oilers GM, It would be nice to get playing with you guys again. I didn't have the skill to play the EASHL with you guys, so this will be a great return to the CAG world for me.

Awesome! It'll be great to have you back, man. Yeah, EASHL just got really restricting. When they made to where you could only play one game at a time, it just really limited that game mode. EA's argument was that it prevented teams from having a ridiculous number of games played...but last week, we ran into a team that had played over 3,800 games this year. For those of you doing the math at home...that's over 10 games a night...every single night.

But yeah, I'm looking forward to finally having a true franchise where it will be about more than just playing the game. Grooming players, making trades, and all that should be a lot of fun.

This is a great next step for EA, it will allow for more people to get together instead of the limit you have in the EASHL when you get to a very competitive level. It will be great on paper, I just hope that EA can deliver. Looking forward to the 7th (yes I bought the Season Ticket for one game, I know I have issues)

Haha...don't feel bad. I'm probably going to get it this year too...for two games though: Madden and NHL. It's not a TERRIBLE deal if you play a lot of Ultimate Team.

I have almost made the justification that having the game four days early is well worth the $25 parlay that with the CE edition of the game, I'm a sick man.

I will porbably pick up season ticket as well this year. As for teams, Alan can have the Avs. I will take the Pens, as they did pretty well for me in our league last year.

Count Me In!!

I had some trouble finding a reliable internet connection last winter with the Madden JV League largely because the league really got going when I left school for semester break.

NHL is the game I play the most and when I heard Online Franchise was Going to Be A Feature, I wanted to join a league.

I will take the Chicago Blackhawks as My Team

Nice! Division rivalries heating up! haha :bouncy:

Also, I'll let Alan confirm if he does want the Avs. Don't want to assume anybody wants to take a "not really the best" team, lol. ;)

EA just posted this on their Facebook:

Most people are guessing it's going to be a date for the demo. The Madden demo comes out tomorrow...so I'd think next Tuesday (8/21) at the earliest if that's it.

That's the same thing they are speculating on the EA forums, the sooner the better.

If w have a random draft or something similar I'll already have a better roster than the real Avs by default lol.

Personally, I'd rather use the real rosters. But if enough people feel like randomly generated rosters would be better for fairness purposes, I'd understand. I guess to me, the ratings never seemed far enough apart in this game to REALLY make things too lopsided (unlike in Madden where the difference between the best and worst team would be like 30 points).

Count me in. I guess I'll take the Capitals. DestroVega for both. EST. I'm pretty flexible on availability.

I think random rosters would be pretty fun but whatever the majority wants is cool.

Thank you very much for putting me down for the Kings. I also would prefer to use real rosters.

Time Zone and Availability: I will be in Illinois from August 1st through the end of September, so I'll be in the Central time zone for about 2 and 1/2 weeks after the game comes out. I'll know my availability by the time the game's out.

Yeah I would also prefer real rosters, makes it feel a little more authentic to me.

Also I should probably note that in my availability, I should probably not have games start later than 10 PM EST Sun-Thursday. I'm up at 6 for work Mon-Fri and like to at least get 6 hours of sleep

So far, it looks like real rosters has the edge. If that would make anybody want to switch teams, just say the word.

Well, I hope the rosters are updated enough so I don't need a goalie. Hopefully Commodore is still there as well.

Ok, cool. Glad we all seem to be on the same page. I do think using the real rosters will make things feel more authentic (especially when you factor in managing AHL clubs and whatnot). And for our first real franchise experience, that's something I'd like to have.

Well, we'll probably do like most leagues and wait on the first roster update (assuming there's a season). And worst comes to worst, you could trade for a better goalie. I'm sure Stamkos would generate some interest. ;)
