There was a bug with the Import Draft that was just fixed in Monday's update, if you have that installed the draft should work properly the next time around. Normally you'll always have two picks (which isn't exactly the way it works in real life, but it's a little difficult to implement the CHL's import rules exactly with the way the game's player rights work.

Setting the QMJHL draft eligibility checkbox will cover those guys, but if you want to specifically focus on them, I would use two scouts, one assigned to League-High School, Team-New England High School and one to League-Midget, Team-New England Midget (or one guy on non-permanent assignment, switching between them).

Not at the moment, the draft data is separate from the editable part of the league rules. Looking at ways of allowing it to be edited now, but editable expansion drafts will probably come first.

Re: the edit, the #2 prospect is probably a defenceman or goalie, the forwards are listed first.
Thank you Jeff. Might add that I appreciate the time you and Adam take to answer questions in the forum. It's not something that you see very often with the bigger companies.

Changing citizenship

Might as well keep asking. In my second season both William Nylander and Pekka Rinne changed citizenships and were selected to play for Canada and USA in the World Cup.

Seems a bit odd and unlikely to me. A lesser Canadian player who switches to Italy is believable or even a lesser Swedish player going somewhere else, but star players like Nylander and Rinne doesn't make any sense to me.

The lack of international history is making it a little too easy for some players to switch primary nationality at the start of the game. I think we're going to have to delay that type of change until a year or two into the game, so they've actually had a chance to play for their primary country (at least until I can figure out the issues with getting national team histories from EP.)

Preparing to expand my NHL beyond 32 teams. Before I do, I am just wondering if there playoff formats available that can accommodate more than 16 teams?

FaceGen Missing Option

Hi Jeff,
can we please get back the missing option "Import PhotoFit (FaceGen) file"!
Is there even a plan to provide this option again?
Thank you!

Small wish/suggestion

Don't know if this is the right place and how hard it would be to implement but a cool feature that I would like is the possibilty to override a retirement decision.

Maybe it could be restricted to one time only as it is in one of the bigger NBA-games on console.

While most retirements make sense, once in a while I see a player retiring and thinking that he has more to give.

No, you can switch formats, but 16 is the top I believe. You can change how those 16 are selected though (or go less as well).

Hard. Well, at least not easy. I think it's probably a long term goal though.

Shortlist & Scouting

Hello!

Would like to first thank the developers for a great game, well done

When it comes to scouting and shortlists i have some questions...

* Can i add a player to a shortlist from the players profile? it's difficult to find that specific player again when going back to 'list view' when the list have been re-
* Is there a way to make scouting lists permanently sort them self after specific criteria? for example when entering "Active Scouting" and scouts reports, sort for "Potential", entering a players profile and going back, my sorting have been changed.

This two questions goes hand in hand in some ways. Right now i feel it's quite hard to scout in this game - but possibly there are solutions?

Thanks in advance!

Where can I see what kind of compensation I have to give up if a RFA signs my offer sheet?

Thanks. It's not a big issue imo. Most of times when I "disagree" with a retirement is related to the goalies. I think that some of them could play a couple of more years if they still are rated 3 and above for example.

Player not learning the language

My only created player has a real hard time learning English. 4 years in the NHL has done nothing and he is still not even on a basic level. Must be some sort of a record.

Is there something I can do to help him along? I'll edit a stat or two if that would help.

High Intelligence and Adaptability will speed it up. And playing him regularly will also help.

No way to do either right now, but both should be doable - the sorting one may be a little more complicated, but adding the shortlist option to the player Action Menu dropdown shouldn't be.

Would be great to have that option, in that case the sorting when re-entering the active scouting screen is not an issue, when the user dosen't need to search for the player again on that screen, when shortlist option are available on the players profile.

So no way to look up the AAV and compensation in-game? Are historic seasons using the correct AAV values when it comes to compensation?

Thanks. I bumped up his intelligence a bit as he was a 6 and just a tad brighter than a rock in the woods apparently.
