Reducing Defensemen TOI

I also changed my GM settings to having my coach actually coach the games (using my roster/lines/tactics) and it seems to have solved the problem. Thanks for reporting on your results. I never thought of the GM options. I didn't even remember the default settings ignore the lines and tactics you se...

I think it has to do with attributes and mentality.
I guess you're right. Has to be a rare combination of attributes though, if such a role almost never appears in-game.

Season 2024-2025: Sixth Season, Part 1. There's Room Enough Naturally Ockey had to make changes to open up cap space for the Lindholm deal. T.J Brodie's cap hit was off the books now so after having traded Niederreiter on the draft day, relatively small moves could solve the problem. But for many, ...

Reducing Defensemen TOI

Looking at those numbers I get the feeling the problem might not really go away unless you find another D who has the same level of capability to the AI understands to give some of those minutes to someone else too. Since he's an offensive D (usually the player who gets most time is an offensive D) ...

Reducing Defensemen TOI

The coach will heavily utilize your top defenseman if he's clearly the best D on the lineup. If you have two top guys who are nearly as good overall, the minutes should come down some. Typically if one of your Ds is far above the overall skill level compared to the rest, the coach will reduce ice ti...

Players between the age 16 and 18 just might not show much growth if they're not top end talent. And if they are, the level of opposition and skill of the coaches on that level can re...

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

So a Canucks/Maple Leafs final, obviously we want to win to bump down their draft position since we hold their first round pick. Game 1: OT Loss, Matthews came up big scoring 47 seconds in. Game 2: Canucks looked dominate, Aston-Reese was my player of the game. Canucks dropped game 3 and game 4 mov...

Young players need to clear waivers

I've seen the same issue regarding the waivers. However, in my case the issue seems to go away at the same time when youngsters with CHL rights get their option to 'send back to juniors'. Some players give the 'place on waivers' option even though they might be 19 or 20 years of age and not played o...

how often you should change the practice schedule? One thing worth considering is that if you play NHL with 82 games per season plus long playoffs, players get a lot of exercise from just playing the game (compared to some leagues where there might only be 30 games per per season.). When players on...
