I had this suggestion idea occur to me, but I'm not 100% sure this is already in the game and I just missed it, but I'd like to be able to track players' attribute progress in the AHL like you can in the practice section at the NHL level.

my pipe dream is that fhm becomes good enough and and successful enough into convincing si that it's worth throwing a ton of resources at ehm
would like for this to happen. I echoed this in HFBoards, while EHM is a vet on the gaming scene, Motosport Manager has a full team and resources developed for their game. Their game is fairly new mind you!

EHM would also need more advertisement. I'm sure alot of people that are tired of the EA NHL serie would give EHM a try even if you don't actually play players.

That's how I got into EHM, and later on Football Manager. I used to play FIFA 06 through FIFA 14, and found myself just doing more simming, scouting, and turning profits with players rather than playing the game.

Wishing/hoping for:

1) Ability to add/customize league drafts. In particular, would love to add a USHL draft to give some more depth to that league.

2) Ability to have various age levels of international tournaments - especially for juniors. Not just U20. But U18 and U17 type tournaments like HlinkaGretzky would make it really fun to track the development of top younger prospects.

3) Revised Champions Hockey League format - currently cannot edit/update real structure with old license system in the game right now.

4) A more in-depth player history UI that really highlights awards and achievements a bit more thoroughly than the info screen does now.

5) A more intuitive and fully-realized way to track stats in leagues that are on "enhanced" mode. Would love to be able to cycle through the scoring lists, for example, of NHL franchises year by year - kind of hockeydb or eliteprospects style...even perhaps having player names hyperlinked so you can scroll through team/league scoring histories and then simply click on a players name to bring up their profile/history. The EHM UI is starting to feel a bit static compared to more modern simulation games which more fully mimic navigation as you would on say the internet.

Also, another big wishlist item...universal scoring sliders / adjustments per league that let us tweak scoring trends in each league.

For example:

National Hockey League
Forward Scoring: 1.05
Defender Scoring: 1.60
Overall Scoring: 1.15
Penalties: 0.85
Fighting Majors: 0.25

So the simulation would react to scoring based on the slider settings, with 1.00 being standard and then having the ability to tweak from there. It would really help the sim grow and remain accurate with league trends (for various leagues around the world) and would also be great for historical sims, where you could, for example, simulate the "dead puck" era or other periods of vastly different styles and statistical results. It would also help you to create league styles such as Ligue Nord-Américaine de Hockey where you could put the fighting slider on full blast to create a rough and tumble league.

It would also be cool to have an option related to this that either "freezes" the sim results with the starting tweaks or allows the game to somewhat randomly adjust the settings on its own to produce various styles and results over say a hundred years in a given league.

And another one I may have mentioned in the past:

Some way for the simulation to adjust ratings of players (not the actual individual ratings but perhaps the reputation - so it would affect depth charts) based on whether a league is played on NHL-sized rinks or International-sized rinks. This would help differentiate players who excel in one situation or the other...and make transitions of players between leagues much more interesting.

For examples, a guy like Nigel Dawes or Linden Vey or Matthew Maione might be who they are with a CA of 130 but on teams with larger home rinks, their "calculated" CA or Rep on that team may be the equivalent of say 150 for the purposes of CPU generated depth charts, line-ups and ice time distribution. But if you put them on an NHL club, their "calculated" CA or Rep would be lowered because of their attribute profile, to say a 120, making them a fringe player. If you would open the editor, it would be "130" CA regardless, but the way they are managed would be completely different from the KHL to NHL. Likewise, maybe the inverse is true where some guy in the NHL is a top 6 player but send him to Russia and he gets treated by his KHL club like a 3rd or 4th liner because his skillset is not as valued by that league (or really, the size of the rink is not conducive to maximizing his talents).

Right now, the best way I know how to try and mimic this affect is to edit the "Adaptability" rating (which somewhat works for Russian stars who have failed in North America) but it's impact seems relatively low. And it doesn't work with North American guys like Vey, Dawes or Maione - they actually would need high adaptability to thrive in foreign leagues but somehow not be as good in their native leagues. Does not work.

Would it be possible to be able to have exhibition games for international teams. And be able to create your own tournaments.

Ability to edit game language. Cyrillic understanding.

This is also on top on my wishlist, especially in the junior leagues were standout players irl produce 2 ppg or more,
