If you have the ability to draft them turned on, they appear as Free Agents.

pre season games

Is there any way to have a unlimited NHL roster so I can play my prospects, recent draft picks, ect so I can have a clue on setting my final roster prior to regular season? Thanks.

Is there away to edit a player's history?

When I start with an expansion team, my workaround for the entry draft is to take players from other teams. I would like to edit the history screen so I can change the drafting team to my new team.

I know the rosters don't have to be at 23 during pre season, so I not sure what you mean by "unlimited". I generally just dress the prospects that are closest to being NHL ready.

No. It hasn't really been something a lot of people have asked for.

I don't think you can exactly do this, but you could use the Search bar at the top of the main screen (click on the magnifying glass) and say look at all the D in your given league by searching it and then using the arrow keys to get a quick glance.

Rosters are unlimited during the preseason, but you still can't have more than 50 contracts on a team. If you don't have someone signed (say a prospect), you can offer than a PTO to come to camp.

I am having a brain cramp, how do I set the lineups, I have tried drag & drop right/left clicking. I do have me in the coach options to set the lineups. Sorry to ask a dumb question.

Yes. The frequency will vary according to the head coach's preferences.

Not a question, but a suggestion...add a fan morale boost for making the playoffs, since there's a drop in fan morale for a playoff series loss.

If you have a fastspring version, there is an issue with drag and drop currently that we are working on fixing. Right now you have to click in the checkmark boxes and then click on the lineup spot.

Also need to dress the players you want to play first - first column on roster screen. It can be tricky to see at first.

Question Player protected list

I am getting ready for the expansion draft and the manual reads teams will automatically protect players. How many do they protect ? on the league rules screen it defaults to -90-. I have no idea what this means ? Teams don't have that many players to protect. Need a bit of help here - - thanks.
ie; can we set how many players teams will protect for the draft as in past versions such as 15 or 18 etc...

Hi all, I have a question that is probably so obvious. I'm trying to play my first pre-season game but I'm getting the error message that there are not enough goalies. I have slotted two goalies into my starting line-up so at a bit of a loss of what to do. What am I missing? Thanks in advance

When looking for team staff, is there any way to sort trainer candidates by Trainer Skill on the Free Agent menu?

***Never mind, I found it. It's labeled "Physio," which is why I didn't catch it at first.

I saw an older video of FHM, I think it was FHM3, there was a momentum meter that swung back and forth during the game. I don't see that in FHM6. Was it removed? And if so, is momentum still modeled in the background for the simulation engine?
