i have used unit tactics with personal tactics together . won two stanley cups online play and won 8 in a row offline with the canucks. now i just use unit tactics when i play offline or else i just dominate the cpu and i let my head coach run the team during the regular season except practise i always control the practise with II nor IM nor MM nor. i try to get coaches that have attacking or direct preference do to i like offense and my players win awards regularly . when the playoffs come input my unit tactics with only using personal tactics for hitting, aggression, fighting, joining the rush and pass shooting tendency. I am in no online leagues anymore used to be in 5 at one time but i couldnt get on for a month an due to inactivity was released from all 5 leagues . so i am currently running 3 seperate leagues offline and have a total of 3500 hours played on ehm. I bought ehm december 2016. this is the best gm game out there imo before i found this game i was playing ea nhl for xbox in total have been playing gm games since i was 10 years old i am 26 years old now :)

I think I've never used the "Join Rush" option on anyone but I tend to use pass/shoot simply by looking at which stats are higher for the player :-D

Guys, I try to set my lines with my players, I have (only forwards) 13 players t hat *could* play, role as follows:

Goalscorer: 5
Def Fwd: 2
Power Fwd: 1
Playmaker: 2
and then I have the luck to have Panarin (Skilled forward) and Ovie & Bäckström (Franchise Fwds) in my roster. Sadly I have no plan how to interpret these role. Bäckström Goalscorer I guess .... the others? Of course in real life they score a lot, but I could need some more playmakers for sure....

Despite you . dont know my full roster, how would you interpret the 3 guys and how should I set up my lines? assuming the ratings are pretty much okay (dont want to harass you with more names ;-) ). So Bäckström & Panarin as scorer and Ovie as Playmaker? then I have only 3 Playmaker but 6 scorer in my lineup (or 5 if I scratch one ....)

any tipps are highly aprecciated.

Well if you follow the real can easily assume that Ovie is a goal scorer and that both Panarin and Backstrom are playmakers.
