There is a trade block and GM communication tool right in the game. As well the pm here will work great. I don't think we should bung up the thread with all the possible trade proposals. Just a thought.

On another note, the boss pulled another CBlock on me. She invited people over for dinner tonight. WTF how does she not know the early release is tonight. Such a sad GAG am I.

The trades everyone is talking about are they for the HUT or for the league play?

CheapyD just joined the league, this just got real.

MIND. BLOWN.


Ah, Cheapy always joins. The trick is getting him to play a game, lol. ;) No, in his defense, NHL leagues were so barebones in the past, it was hard to really get a good flow going with games. It was always just "play each opponent 2 times in any order"...so half the league would be done, and then there would be 2-3 people who hadn't played at all. It was just hard to organize.

Yeah, depending on how good the website/app integration is will probably determine how important it is to discuss things in here. Official trade proposals (that have been agreed to by both teams) should be announced in the thread before being put through though. Just to make sure no funny business is going on.

Yeah, for league play. Anything people do with HUT is their own business.

That is also the job of the Commissioner to veto any "funny business" as they will have last say before any trade is posted ingame.

Speaking of, who is the lucky one? I don't remember if I read someone taking on that duty.

How will trades with uncontrolled(AI) teams work? or will those players be available for trade at all?

Its just like playing GM mode in 12. you can make an offer and the AI can accept or make an offer themselves. The new GM Brain allows for AI participation.

The commissioner actually has to approve trades in game before they go through? I hadn't heard about that. That would be interesting (I wonder if it's like that in Madden too). Even so, I think it would be better for the community to have input rather than just one person with ultimate authority.

Having said that...um, I assume it would be me, since I organized this thing.

Like with the Madden league, this will probably be one of those "wait and see" things. I think allowing trading with all teams would be good, but depending on EA's trade logic, we'll have to see if any restrictions are necessary. Hoping that the salary cap will be enough of a restriction in and of itself. But yeah, if somebody is able to get Carey Price for a 7th round pick...that aint gonna work, lol.

I think he meant a human owner trading with an AI team...and whether or not we should allow it. Unless I misunderstood completely. CPU and CPU will do whatever the hell they want, lol. That's the one thing I have learned with Madden. We basically have to allow ourselves to do whatever the CPU does because if we don't, they'll run wild. This happened in Madden with free agents. The CPU went crazy signing them from the first day of pre-season.

If NHL is like that too, we'll have to come up with some kind of system for signing FA's that isn't just a ridiculous free for all. This would most likely be a draft, allowing each team a chance to sign one FA. Whether we want to base it on team rating or cap space...or a combination of the two is up for discussion though.

Not all Comcasts are created equal... Pretty shitty though since they just raised my bill to $62 a month. Pretty sure I'm at at least 20MB...but who knows how hard they throttle my butthole. Though, I'm also probably in a more populated area than you are. Peak hours and all that.

We don't "get to". We paid to, lol. At least give us proper recognition for being EA shills. ;)

Nice to see Cheapy join up into the CAG franchise. Anyone who wants a goalie, I'm sure DiPieitro is availiable!

I'll be curious to see reactions from you guys on NHL. I'm already pumped for the first hockey night next Friday.

Umm...ok. I'm playing through the tutorial (for the hell of it), and my screen is getting stuck. Like a frozen image, but the tutorial thinks it's still going. Anybody else getting this?

Annnnd...just locked up my Xbox when I looked at the options when creating a GM Connected League. I hope my download isn't corrupted or something from taking so long.

EDIT - Ok, upon reboot, it seems to be running smoother. Maybe it just needed to warm up after that beast download, lol. As much as I'd like to use the name "No Hockey League" for our lockout inspired franchise, the only way to secure it would be to start now...which would give us current rosters and tuner sets. HOWEVER, "CAGLS No Hockey League" just fits as a name, haha, so we should be able to use that.

All right, looking at the GM Connected options, we've got a few things to figure out. These are the general settings...and what I assume most of us will want. I'll put the items up for debate in bold, so feel free to weigh in on those...or any of the others too.

League Name: CAGLS No Hockey League (assuming there's a lockout and we want to be smartasses, lol)
Description: Official CheapAssGamer Hockey League

Maximum Users Per Team: 1
NHL Schedule Length: 3 days, 1 week, 2 weeks (this determines how much of the schedule is available to be played at a time)
Allow Simming of Games: Yes (meaning users can choose to sim their games vs the CPU)
Allow Join Requests: Yes (not really a reason to have this on, but who knows who may stumble upon this league without seeing the thread. we might even want to let them join)
Skill Level: Rookie, Pro, All-Star, Superstar (one of the few options that can be changed after we start the franchise)
Game Style: Casual, Default, Normal, Hardcore, Favorite, Current (I still barely know what these do. I usually just leave it on Default, but if somebody else has a better idea, speak up)

Period Length: 5 minutes
Icing: Delayed
Injuries: On
Penalties: On
Post Whistle Rules: Authentic (I hope we'd all agree on this one)
Penalty Time Scaling: On
Fighting: On

Playoff Series Length: Best of 7
Playoff Tie Break: Continuous OT
Season Overtime Loss: 1 point
Season Tie Break: 5 min (4 on 4) then Shootout
CPU Trades: On (meaning allow CPU to CPU trades)
Waivers: On
GM Connected Length: 25 (25 seasons...yep...I'm sure we'll get there, lol)
Starting Rosters: Current
NHL Salary Cap: On
Roster Type: Default (meaning real NHL rosters)
Tuner Set Version: Latest (unless they screw something up horrifically)
Do you have what it takes to compete?

Don't have any strong feelings about Skill Level and Game style, but I think schedule length should be a week. How often are we looking at advancing, and what number of games are we playing?

The bad news is, Reddit guy seemed to be full of shit. I didn't see any option to shorten the number of games played. Sooo...we might need to come up with a really smart system to decide which games will be played because playing 82 games in a franchise that is meant to go multiple seasons is just stupid.

I listed every settings option. If you didn't see it listed, you can't change it.

Doubtful. The early release of Madden was exactly the same.
