    Yeah pretty much, if his role is top 9 then I would probably put him on the 2nd/3rd line. However if that is not possible, you can bury him in the minors playing top line minutes and for the most part he won't drop until probably half way through the season or later. Perhaps this has changed with NHL20 but this is how it generally works for other simulations.
  3. I'm very happy that the boys cleared waivers, I did not want to lose any of them. It will be very interesting to see what Goldy does down there, if he lets the demotion get the better of him or works his ass off to get back in the league. I have no doubt we will see Sven again. Not long now boys

    Knowing EA's simulation engine, the only way they would lose growth was if they were not playing their 'role'. Can always demote the NHL player to the third line if you don't care for their retention. Also, looks like its time to start a Canucks GM mode finally, with our roster being set and pending RFA's signed. The goal is 2021/22 Stanley Cup!
  5. People need to remove themselves from Vancouver media, I've come up with better material on the toilet.
  6. Very comparable player and contract to McAvoy, I think his contract was a steal and this one is the same!

    Looks like initial reviews are mostly in the 7.5/10-8.5/10 range, as seen on metacritic and opencritic, links below: https://opencritic.com/game/8248/nhl-20/charts https://www.metacritic.com/game/playstation-4/nhl-20 IGN also has a video on their website, will post youtube link when uploaded- https://au.ign.com/articles/2019/09/13/nhl-20-review?watch Seems that most of the criticism is the same as last year, they improved the core gameplay mechanics considerably but then neglected a lot of the popular game modes. For the most part consensus is that the game is worth picking up.

    I haven't seen a lot of franchise modes that have been simmed past 2-3 years, so hard to tell. I would assume knowing EA they haven't changed it, they continue to add gimicky features to the gameplay. While they do work well and add to meaningful gameplay, I don't recall them addressing any of the core franchise gameplay mechanics that have been missing since previous gen.

    initial feedback from people with early access suggests that while the gameplay looks exactly the same for the most part, it actually plays and feels a lot better than previous years. Seems like some good changes to franchise but for the most part other modes appear to be mostly unchanged.

    Lots of these franchise mode changes sound quite good, hopefully they tweak the scouting of last year to make it more like scouting on the previous gen.

    Nothing here is of interest to me outside of the goalie redirection/threat detection. Looks a lot better. Couldn't care less about authentic looking skating and signature shots.

    I really wish EA would spend more development time bringing NHL back to the gameplay level of the previous generation and spent less time on the pointless game modes and aesthetics that they use for marketing purposes. Every year its the same, enough already EA!
