Couple of screenshots from my latest blowout:

I've seen some games get up to 10 goals before, but 13?! Definitely a new record for me.

He should be on a line with Vancouver's "Henry Henry" in my recently finished save, they'd get along swimmingly!

I managed to set a fairly unbeatable NHL record in the later stages of my Jets save:
Image
I don't think I'll see another 148 game winning streak anytime soon.

And although this isn't our highest scoring game, I've never seen 4 hat-tricks in the same game before or after:
Image

and since Riz didn't bother to actually line up the NHL Olympic break with the Olympics, this is what my lineup looked like for 2 games in our 100% win rate season:
Image
If Sweden hadn't flopped out early I wouldn't have had Sandell or Elvenes either.

In other news, Boston are now claiming Boston's player off the waivers:
Image

We also dethroned the 80s Oilers as the highest scoring NHL team in history with a 463 goal season in 36-37, this is what the leaderboards looked like:
Image
and during that same season we had something ridiculous happen, Jaromír Reichel scored on all three of his first three shots for a hat-trick:
Image

Several seasons earlier I saw the lowest rating for a game a player has ever had for me; Emmanuel Murphy put up a 2 Rating game in goal for the Blackhawks:
Image
That really is impressively bad.

And here is a very nice representation of what happens when you hit 30 games with over 80% win rate, it's happened for over 20 seasons in a row by now; This just happens to be the time I bothered to screenshot it:
Image
But hey it's only been happening for two decades in a row, just a freaky coincidence that my goalie forgets how to make saves at the exact same amount of wins every time. Thankfully it only persists for around 10 games every time, then it goes back to normal. Any goalie we face in those games also averages at least 5% above their normal SV%, but it generally only translates into ~0 to 2 losses per season.

There has been some other ridiculous nonsense happening too over the course of this save, but eventually I got quite jaded and stopped bothering to screenshot it. This last one was pretty hilarious though:
Image
Note that the goalie swap bug (which has been in the game for almost a year now) was the only reason the game went into OT at all, since my backup came in for 2 minutes and let up 1 goal in 2 shots. The reason this game went so long was that their goalie in net was actually out injured when I set the shot targeting; In the load screen leading up to the game he got back to being day-to-day and was put in net, since he and their backup had opposite weaknesses we ended up targeting his strength until he finally let in a goal in OT after 126 SOG in the late 143rd minute.
Would be neat if that bug could ever be fixed, since it was implemented in the 1.2 patch last summer and has been reported over at SIgames.

in my canucks sim, it was decided that daniel's number would be retired but not henrik's, which would be amazingly funny if it happened irl.

Meanwhile a grand total of 0 of my players had their numbers retired in my Jets save, I had to eventually manually retire them in the editor. Carter Hart had 125 shutouts and 1063 wins for us, Timothy Liljegren had about 1200 points in 1500 games as a defenceman, Ehlers had 1500 points in 1200 games and Blake Wheeler also had over 1000 games and over 1000 points. It seems like whatever decides number retirement in EHM is about as functional as the rest of the game.

In other news EHM still can't do math:

The winner had <blank> First Star selections, the runner up had...uhm, yeah.

Today, I learned that even in EHM that the Sabres can ruin their franchise.
Image
Who the Sabres recieved...
Image
And the franchise goalie that the Sabres(and previously the Coyotes) gave away..

Also, in a parrallel (EHM) universe, this is the goaltending match up for the Canadiens-Bruins game

I know it can happen in Football Manager, but I have never heard of it being a feature in EHM.


Will it happen? =D>

Looks like Rafalski plans to retire with the Bruins. Never seen that message before:

It usually comes when a veteran player signs an extension. I've seen it quite often.

Do jersey numbers retire dynamically now?

If by dynamically you mean completely at random with no discernible logic behind it, then yes. Otherwise, no.
