finished 5th in the league which I thought was quite good for that group of players

Nice signing MWE! Tommy Sestitov 8-)

I think players with high hitting do well in the SHL it seems.

He's doing terribly for me.

Really struggling second season my team is now 8th with 2 regular season games left. Although we can potentially finish 4th if we win our last two games in regulation.

Go to the bar up top where it says "TBL Challenge". Hover over that and you'll see a drop down menu. Click where it says "Upload Your Stats". Fill in the blanks there and submit.

Cool challenge! I will join when I get a new computer and finish a season in my "Edmonton Oilers are empty and bankrupt, only sign minor leaguers and UFAs" game. :roll:

Anyone else having problems in season 3 with the schedule? After 2 games and 2 wins in the final playoff series the world championships started which delayed the rest of the games by over a month. Before the final games over 10 of my contracts ran out ](*,) , trade limits were removed and SHL awards were handed out. Also had a day in the season were some teams played 2 games in one day.

Not following the Challenge but using it to try out a league I have never tried before. I am really digging the Euro Champions Cup. I lost in the Semi-Finals after my starting goalie went down. Even then, I only lost 8-7 (Goals Total).

Are we limited to being a GM for only the Djurgårdens SHL team?

In an NHL Challenge, IIRC you can add a GM for the AHL/ECHL affiliates (to improve development of prospects for the "main team" by controlling things like coaching/practice/lines/tactics for affiliate teams).....are we allowed to add a GM for Djurgårdens IF J20 and Djurgårdens IF J18?

Bleh.

Well, the first season started off well enough, but I completely blew the last quarter of the season - after being 3rd-4th for most of the season, finished 12th, barely staving off demotion. ](*,) After making two transactions (the only ones for Djurgardens in this partcular season) failed to find any balance, kept changing the tactics in a desperate attempt to find performance, never did, went 1-6-1-2 in the last 10. Interesting off-season coming up, will try to be more proactive with my trades, perhaps didn't shake it up enough during the season.

Still, this is great fun, my first challenge, and the SHL is a really entertaining league, excited for season 2 as Djurgardens. :joy:

You can't add managers for european junior teams.

I was looking to keep things simplified for this challenge but I guess we could look at doing that in future European challenges.
