to save your time just go to OOTP official twitter and find videos of a guy (one of FHM developers if I'm not mistaken) playing for Maple Leafs. all he's doing, basically, just clicking "continue". that is pretty much all you'll be doing in there.
FHM is OK for a mobile app. but as a "Sport Management game for PC" it's not good at all.
it is a lot easier than EHM in every part. trading for example: you can get almost any player you want for a pair of 3rd round picks, and offload any garbage you don't need for a 4th round pick (literally! even a dead ECHLer can bring you 5th rounder!)
tactical system is basically same as in FHM2. despite "all new!" "choose your tactical system" screen all tactics they offer is combination of TWO! parameters (zone entry: pass/dump, shoot/ pass preference for offense and checking, physicality for defense).
long story short there's a lot of stuff in that game without any real purpose. most of adjustments you do it's a guessing game because feedback is slim to none (there's no 2D engine, it's just a huge dot moving back and forth). only thing that keeps you in touch with on ice process is FHM own game rating system (and to be fair this one is probably the best I've seen in management games especially since they split offensive and defensive ratings). they tried to add advanced stats (Corsi and Fenwick) but last time I played (like 2 or 3 updates ago) it wasn't very useful.
to be honest, for me FHM3 was a massive disappointment!. I spent some time playing FHM2 last summer, so when I heard they releasing FHM3 i thought it would be a new game, i thought they will take at least one step forward. but it's basically FHM2.1 and if you press F3 you'll find old FHM2 tactical screen which actually sums it all up.
so with FHM OOTP took the same path which buried FM. they decide to come knocking on customers wallets every autumn without really making a new product. and basically use their customers as a beta testers. making slight adjustments and 5 updates between october and march and then charge another $20 come next october.
