I would for sure. It would add something I have never had to a sports manager simulation.

I've done one of those before. It's pretty fun until you need to figure out what players' trade values are (I was on the bad end of a few "even" deals made before the season started). Would probably do it again given the chance.

Since we can create leagues, if we can get ~8 players, everyone can create his or her own team to play.

Did they ever fix the ratings? Example: Malkin being 3.5/5 stars?

Really digging this, now that it's out of beta. Rating system is much better than beta, too.

Still kind of quirky. When simulating a season, everyone is trade-happy.

I'm pretty sure you can customize the trade-happiness of the game.

Almost everything is customizable.

Man, I wished they still made the NHL series for PC. This is pretty close, as I really like the GM side of things.

This is available on Steam for $20 as of today. Anyone that's been playing a while have impressions of the current build? Beta impressions seemed somewhat mixed, so I'm curious if this is a "must buy", or just a "meh"?

It's alright. If it was cheaper than maybe. It has some serious flaws that a management sim can't have. Maybe in time, but even $20 is too much..

I agree with this. I've been pretty disappointed in this Sim.

Well, that's disappointing. :cry: Am I correct in thinking that, since EHM went under, there is no currently developed alternative out there? I still miss my APBA Hockey for DOS.

For example, if you have the current roster with the Pens, you are way over the salary cap. It automatically sent all my guys to waivers. Not just 1 or 2...but all of them. So, after that my #1 center was Jayson Megna. LOL.
