Hot Prospects: The official draft/youth/prospects thread

One thing that's always bugged me.......... ........So can someone explain how the CHL rules actually work...... Hopefully someone can clear this up for me :-? I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who finds these rules difficult to understand. Now there is another question too. Again, playing as an...

The Official TBL Practice Thread

Wanted to share my notion again; there is unexpected decay in player attributes. Sometimes even as young as 22 years old. One of my prospects spent two years in AHL and started regressing after turning 22. Even his anticipation att dropped during that year which seems very odd. On my NHL roster it s...

Hot Prospects: The official draft/youth/prospects thread

One thing that's always bugged me playing in the NHL is that players who have played in the CHL (QMJHL + OHL + WHL) can't be sent to my AHL affiliate team before they turn 20. This is a pretty big annoyance as I have no control on how they are played in the junior leagues. In the AHL I can at least ...

How to move an existing game to another PC?

I got the game running successfully after copying all the manual mods along with those savegames. Just one thing wrong; some of my scouts are not showing up on my "scouting" menus. I'm not sure if these are generated scouts, or perhaps they are even ones from the 'prospect generator'. I'll see if t...

Did I lose my game

is there anything I could try through Steam? Do you think by any chance they automatically backs up games? I'd be interested in this also. I see that each time I close EHM, Steam does a quick sync on it. But what does it sync? Normally on games this feature syncs exactly the savegames and setting d...

How to move an existing game to another PC?

All you need is the single save game file (in Documents -> Sports Interactive -> EHM -> games) Thanks for the reply! Sorry for my delay in commenting. It took a while to have my new system running. So, somehow the savegame file includes the database information then? Does it matter that I used a mo...

How's it going in EHM 1? What team are you?

Board limiting salary offers is a real bugger. Especially as the AI can sign players for more. I just went into arbitration the first time ever because player wants 11.8 mill, and the board will not allow more than 9.9. Arbiter then signs him for one lousy year at 12.8 mill! Is there still no way t...

testing data - database CA levels/distribution

^^^
I really don't know the specifics of the prospect generator. It would be nice if I did. It does some things very well so with that knowledge we could enhance the future databases maybe. BTW, looking forward to your 1974 database! Do you plan to include draft prospects into the '80s with that DB?

How did I get a surprise 2 million cap penalty? I've not done any buy-outs at all. Can I see somewhere what the cause is for the penalty and can I see for how long it will be in effect?

Offical Tactics Thread: Powerplay & Penalty Kill

I'm not sure if this has been covered before. Perhaps it has, just can't find it right now. Do the player positions behave differently when on powerplay and/or penalty killing. When playing even strength players always get a skill penalty when you play them on the 'wrong' position, i.e. one that the...

If he performs like that, I wouldn't worry that much honestly. If he wasn't NHL ready, he would have average ratings and stats. Maybe during the second season he will slow down but knowing EHM I doubt it. Interestingly he's not slowed down but neither has he grown any since I signed him all the way...

Thanks for all the great facepacks. Makes the game so much more fun to play!

Would anyone happen to have updated face pictures of the 2017 and 2018 draft class? You know, what the guys look like in 2019. I'm so bad at photoshop I wouldn't even try myself :/

Another question. What effect do international games have on players' development? Logically I would think they would improve the 'big games' attribute and pressure etc. But is this the reality? What about the junior world championship tournaments - do they still have an effect on player development...

One question. Is there any risk in allowing top prospects going RFA after their entry level contract? I am very much prepared to match any offer sheet if that happens. My thinking is I should be able to sign a more realistic contract with these guys if they enter the (restricted) free agency. Re-sig...

Second time attempt of building an NHL dynasty with the Detroit Red Wings. I seem to be drawn to the original six and I like this franchise's history. Anyhow, I took a different approach than the last time. Last time I succeeded very well by focusing on getting the best possible results from the ver...

I've a question about young players' willingness to stay with the team in NHL.

This uncertainty about their future seems to correlate h...

Interesting if it is a bug because I've seen it now on three different careers, and the first one was using an unmodified TBL 10.3 roster and without any other mods that could alter the game mechanics.

As promised, there were also a few good goalies added by this generator. Some players had, erm, "unexpect...
