Hi. Thanks a lot for these rosters, been playing for 9 seasons now with Seattle, which I edited in to replace San Jose. A quick question, if you don't mind. I've noticed that now as the drafts have become thoroughly populated with generated players, the level of talent has become somewhat more lackluster. Is this a continuing trend, or will the talent level bounce back as the big stars start retiring and coming back as regens? Or are the regens not a 'thing' anymore? Anyway, thanks in advance for your response and sorries if this has been asked already. And once more, thanks for the amazing work you've put in!

I also find the talent level to be less impressive 5-6 years into a game. I tried the ehm prospect generator before starting a game (utilities in the download section) and it seems to make things better

The structure of the Danish has just been changed after a few bankruptcies, are there any that can change that to the right structure?

I'm updating all the clubs so I would be happy if some could help with the structure. :nod:

My DB doesn't have a lot of re-gens until after the current crop of NHL superstars retire, if that is the type of talent you are talking about. EHM in general is a little weak at creating very deep drafts, so I try to front load this DB a bit. I also don't keep retired players/staff in the DB to save space and reduce weird activity like random un-retirements. The prospect generator helps a for sure and I am experimenting with baking in a few pools of draft ready talent into the DB from the generator. I will probably have that work done over the summer for v4 next season.

Hi! Great work as always. You have filled the TBL void with aplomb.

Just one small niggle I would like to point out -- Blake Wheeler is still coded as a power forward rather than as a playmaker (20 deflections and 17 wrist shot rather than 20 passing and 19 anticipation), when he has not played like a power forward for a number of years.

Thanks, I love this kind of feedback, I don't get to watch Wheeler a lot so I will make these changes!

Hello, just found your rosters while waiting for new TBL rosters. I’ve done NHL 40 project previously on BK’s rosters,then on old TBL 10.3, do you think it’s possible to use your db and do you mind if I do that? Keep up the good work I’ve read every post here and the community is very lucky to have such a devoted and hard-working person.

I was preparing an excel sheet for expansion draft to my new version of NHL 40 based on your latest rosters and came across four minor mistakes
Andrew Nielsen and Tobias Lindberg should be in different clubs - Calgary and Vegas respectively if I remember correct. One 42 year old free agent should be retired and there are still Sedin brothers in Vancouver even though they retired.
Btw I want to say that your rosters are the best I’ve worked on. Very good Balanced rosters for NHL if it comes to CA/PA evaluation. Considering All the limitations that come with negative potentials for future generated players the evaluation seems really fair. Thank you for All that work you did!

First and foremost: Big Thank You to xECK29x and all the guys who work on this roster! Great job, guys!

my question is why you decided to use translit?
Ukranian Hockey League is a legitimate name, its on the logo (http://uhl.ua/).
using translit it's either "Ukrainska Khokeyna Liha", "Ukrayinska Khokeyna Liha" or "Ukrainska Hokeyna Liha"

team names are:

Bilyi Bars Bila Tserkva (Bilyi Bars, BBR)
Dnipro Kherson (Dnipro, DNI)
Donbass Donetsk (Donbass, DON)
HK Kremenchuk (Kremenchuk, KRM)
Kryzhani Vovky Kyiv (Vovky, VOV)
MHK Dynamo Kharkiv (Dynamo, DYN)

same with "Moskva" and "Oblast". Moscow is good, and adding word "Oblast" to the name is absolutely unnecessary.
also there is english version of KHL official site (https://en.khl.ru/).

all these are just my suggestions, though.

@nashmc - thank you for the compliments it really means a lot, this is a passion project for all of us involved and we really love doing it for the community and I am glad to hear I am a good talent evaluator (maybe I should get into scouting!)

@Buho - We almost exclusively use Eliteprospects for club long and short names, this makes import work easier for things like career history updates. However I am happy to make any and all adjustments especially at the request of fans of those leagues/clubs. I will make the changes you suggested, as an American sometimes I am unsure what to use but I don't want to over-Americanize the database, I'd like it to have as much appropriate local accuracy and culture as I can add.

Hey, I've started filling rosters of the Western States Hockey League for my own. If you want I can share all the players I created (with an excel sheet) with you can so you can import them into your database. I also planned filling rosters of many Junior A leagues in Canada later on.

This is where the Synonym data in the Editor comes into play. If you go to the 'Synonym' sub-folder in the Editor installation folder, you'll find a text file entitled "club.txt". You can add alternative spellings in this file which will allow the Editor to match the EliteProspects spelling contained in a spreadsheet against the native spelling in the database. You just list each alternative spelling on a new line in the file with commas separating each spelling. You should check whether any existing spellings/synonyms already exist for the team in question in the file - if they do then you should just add your spellings to the existing line. The same thing applies to league/competition names, first names and second names. I got fed up having to make the same corrections to my player career history spreadsheets every year (e.g. changing Evegny Malkin to Evegeni Malkin) - so I created the files to make/match up the changes for me.

If you do make use of the synonym file then please do post any additions you make to the Editor thread. I will then include these in the default synonym files which come with the Editor.

Hey, I've started filling rosters of the Western States Hockey League for my own. If you want I can share all the players I created (with an excel sheet) with you can so you can import them into your database. I also planned filling rosters of many Junior A leagues in Canada later on.
Would be great! Reach out to me on Steam or email me, xeck29x (at) gmail.com, will give you full credit of course!
