Well, I'm sure he's figured it out by now since it's been out for 2 months.

Assuming he hasn't, the basics of the GM Brain trading logic are:

Team expectations - Teams designate themselves as one of 4 types of teams:Champion (One of the top teams in the league), Contender (Likely to make the playoffs, but not as strong), Hopeful (Bubble team), and Rebuilder (A team not expected to make the playoffs). This is based on their team makeup now and for the next 3 seasons. Teams like the New York Rangers and Vancouver Canucks will be classified as Champion teams, as they're very strong and have an excellent chance of capturing the cup. The 3 seasons thing is key as the brain may project that a Rebuilder will become a Contender or Champion in the next 3 seasons, so it may be difficult to strike a deal with those teams at all. I'm not a big trading guy (I'm a develop-from-within guy), so I haven't really tested this aspect too much. Edmonton would likely be or become a Rebuilder w/ Champion aspirations, I would imagine.

Champion and Contender teams are unlikely to trade away core assets, but are generally willing to give up picks/prospects for players that will help them now.

Hopeful and Rebuilder teams are unlikely to trade away picks/prospects, but are generally willing to give up veterans for picks/prospects.

Roster Management - The GM Brain takes into account things such as age, # of players of the same position on the team, skill level, player role, and cap hit. So if a team has a substantial number of right wingers, but are lacking left wingers, swapping one of your LWs for one of their RWs of similar trade value is more likely than if you offer them a player at a position that they're already strong in.

Once the brain takes this into account, it then compiles its trade block.

So, for example, if a team is a Hopeful with a 2nd line center currently filling the 3rd line center spot on the team but has a 3rd line scoring winger player right wing, the brain will put the 2nd line center on the block and a 2nd line right winger as one of the team needs.

It's actually a pretty well-designed logic system, at least on paper. As we all know, it has some flaws in the logic (KOPITARZ ON WAIV0RZ!!!), but it's substantially better logic than NHL 12 and past games.

Huberdeau has 4.5-star potential and should be a monster in a couple years if I play him. Thoughts?

That's a seriously stacked line up Rinne!

Personally I'd do pretty much the same only I'd keep Kesler and Schneider, or trade Kes for Staal maybe.

You could also get St. Louis for Booth or Ballard + Picks. Could you imagine a second line of:

Alfredsson - Staal/Kesler - St. Louis

Not sure where that would put the cap hit though, but if you gave Tampa Bay Booth and Ballard, if the cap can handle all the above, it should balance out St. Louis' hit.

CS just wasn't as clutch as Lou in the first 10 games where I did a 5-5 split and CS lost 4/5 on Pro, Lou went 5/5

Schneider kinda sucks in this game for the first year or so but he's a perfect backup.

Ha ha! Wow!

...

Damn you work fast! Your name was Pekka Rinne when I quoted you and by the time I finished it's Jordan Eberle! ::D
