I made some changes last year, but it looks like some things we changed to get the talent-from-stats feature working this summer may have knocked them back out of whack in some leagues. I'll see if we can tone them back down.

Gretzky on 2 teams?

In my historical league Gretzky was a lifelong Baltimore player.

In 1990 I add Hampton Roads and Tampa as expansion teams.

Gretzky was apparently a free agent at the time.

On July 2 he is BOTH signed by Baltimore and Drafted by Hampton Roads in the expansion draft?

Did Baltimore sign and then not protect a 5 star Gretzky at 30 years old?

Why did it take until the 14th round for Hampton Roads to draft him?

Was the error that the July 2 signing was really by Hampton Roads after the expansion draft?

So the protection lists / expansion draft logic and / or a glitch in the game needs work?

Hello

I’m starting a career with GRENOBLE as a GM.
I need to hire a head coach but I don’t know what’s the key skills for him.

I apologize if it’s a easy question but since I’m French and not fluent in English maybe I miss the answer.

This probably needs to be in our Bugs Forum and we'll likely need to see the save. Please upload it.

When you're looking to hire a coach (Staff > Tab Free Agents) - make sure to sort by Head Coaches. From there, use the drop down box and look at Misc. Skills. All of those can help you decide.

Historical Records

Any plans on adding positional (forward/defenceman) leaderboards for team and league records? Love that feature in OOTP Baseball. Maybe by nationality as well?

Yeah, I'd like to do that at some point, although we might first need to look at finding a better method of tracking the position a player has actually be used in, there have been a few contexts where that's been useful. Otherwise that'd mess up the leaders if e.g. a guy shifts from forward to D late in his career and we just used his "current" position.

What are the parameters regarding lowering fan happiness for trading away very recent draft picks?

I traded away a guy who was picked in the second round the year before and got dinged 1 fan happiness for it, then traded a guy who was picked in the fourth round in that same draft and didn't get penalized.

It's more about how high the picks are. Just like in real life, fans are going to question when you trade away a 1st or 2nd (or maybe even a 3rd) round pick. He was suppose to be apart of the future of your team, and now you've traded him.

The thing is, depending on what you're getting, it's a wash. If you're bringing back a popular player, you'll gain +. If you bring in a higher draft pick, you'll likely get a + at the draft for your pick as well.

Go to your roster screen and use the drop down box and switch it to stats.

Does anybody know why certain AHL callups add to me just a part of their salary and other ones the full value? All the concerned players should be on rookie entry level deals so I don't quite get it.

Okay, I believe that's to do with actually bumping/sliding contracts. Smith's is a slide, but the other isn't, so by calling him up you're actually put his contract into full effect.

I'm hoping so, there's one thing we're going to try first and if that doesn't do it I have another idea. But I think both can get done in time, they're not complicated fixes.

I need help with my training.

I've set up training on my Rangers save and gave few players extra coaching attention like Kakko. The problem is I can only put 4 players on extra defensive/offensive/physical attention or otherwise those extra attention points will go under 10. I only had 4 assistant coaches so obviously I thought it might be that. I signed 7 assistant coaches focusing those areas where I was lacking but none of extra attention points rose.

Any idea how could I get them to rise? I don't need to put all of my players on extra attention but 6 players on each category would be nice.

Also Kakko feels isolated. Will he ever learn English in the game or should I sign another Finnish player?


Thanks

Signing more coaches doesn't add more. It does cap out a certain point. Think too many voices trying to control a player. Keep in mind players will still rise without extra attention as well, and you can go below 10, the affect just isn't as great - which is why we always suggest focusing on 3-5 players.

Kakko will, but it takes time. You may want to consider signing another Finnish player.

Just out of curiosity what will add more? High quality coach or do I need to wait until my GM+Head Coach develops his coaching attributes?

It's little weird since my goalie coach has excellent goalie coaching and very good prospect coaching, but I only get 13 points on my goalie when giving him extra attention. I wonder how the misc. attributes come to play here.

I apologize with all the questions but I'm fairly new with FHM
