Quick update...there won't be a big amount of data changes in this update from v2.3 which was just a couple days ago but I have tinkered with some team names/info plus re-named some divisions (for example the NHL Northeast is now back to the NHL Atlantic). The reason for some of this is I am trying to streamline some league structure data so I can release "NHL32" with just Seattle in the near future (I think archi's next editor update will help in my quest to maintain one database which I can simultaneously use for all the NHL36 universes plus NHL32). Downloads First Page of EHM Thread as usual.
Updated logos and ice backgrounds for the graphics changes below (Seattle, KC) can be found on that page as well or directly here:

In terms of data, Cogliano's extension is in there, Jack Johnson will likely now request a trade or be traded and Jagr also has been knocked down the Flames depth chart so that he'll likely want out of Calgary. Plus minor updates from around major leagues, colleges, juniors, etc.- Seattle Kraken are now the Seattle Totems (in all NHL36 databases and will be in NHL32 as well).
I love the Kraken nickname - it's great fun, but as Seattle draws nearer to becoming a reality, I don't think we will see Kraken high on the list of possibilities. I've been lurking on some Seattle forums and the local favorites seem to be Steelheads, Thunderbirds, Totems and Metropolitans. I didn't find a Steelhead logo I liked well enough. Metropolitans, although historic, is rather bland. Thunderbirds seems to be the local favorite but I didn't want to have to rebrand the WHL Seattl Thunderbirds in this database. That left Totems, which has history and a sweet retro logo which I touched up a bit.
Colors are emerald green, forest green and a bluish-gray accent.- Color switch for Saskatchewan.
Because I switched Seattle back to a green primary, I flipped the colors for the Saskatchewan Whitetails so that I didn't have Seattle, Saskatchewan and Portland all being potentiall added as green teams. So now the "Prairie Gold" is the primary color for the Whitetails - and I think it actually fits better and gives them a more unique look. Credit to Ukko who came up with a neat jersey for them from which I took the idea of the gold primary!- Scouts Makeover.
For the Kansas City Scouts, gone is the retro-roundel logo and in it's place, thanks to FinnsUp1214 @ sportslogos.net, it a totally new and custom logo which plays less of Native American imagery (a bit touchy these days) and centers more on the horse aspect while maintaining the Native American feel. The colors are also brightened and less drab.- Vegas Color Tweak
Ended up tweaking the Vegas Steel and Vegas Gold to more directly match their actual home uniforms. Vegas is kind of weird because their offical gray color is almost a dark green-gray while their official gold is rather drab but on the ice, their look is much more of a traditional gray and the gold fabric in their uniforms really reflects lights - and I want their team look in EHM to look like what they do on the ice.
