2 pointsJust in time for opening night, I finished the 2018-19 update to my SPHL rosters in the EA sports NHL game. Read on for my official season simulation. Here's a link to a Dropbox album showing each team's roster and player overall ratings Let's get a few notes out of the way: (1) This was done on NHL 18 because it required countless hours during the past year to create and there's no way to transfer it to NHL 19. (2) The ratings are zero % subjective by me. I built a formula that turns previous season stats into attributes. The formula definitely isn't perfect, but it's consistent: thus, I didn't favor anyone in doing this. (3) Rosters are set as of opening night. For teams with only 17 skaters, a "dummy" placeholder skater has been added onto the 4th line / 3rd pair because the game requires 18. Now, onto the simulation... Regular Season Standings: #1 Pensacola / #2 Birmingham / #3 Knoxville / #4 Macon / #5 Quad City / #6 Peoria / #7 Fayetteville / #8 Huntsville / #9 Roanoke / #10 Evansville Scoring Champion: Jake Hauswirth (FAY) Most Goals: Maxime Guyon (RNK) Most assists: Ryan Marcuz (PEN) PIMS Leader: Craig Simchuk (BIR) Highest Save % & Lowest GAA: Charlie Millen (BIR) Challenge Round: Pensacola def. Huntsville 2-1 / Birmingham def. Fayetteville 2-1 / Peoria def. Knoxville 2-0 / Quad City def. Macon 2-1 Semi-finals: Peoria def. Pensacola 2-1 / Birmingham def. Quad City 2-0 President's Cup Finals: Peoria def. Birmingham 2-0 (Rivermen fans: "it's about time!") Playoff Leading Scorers: Justin Larson (BIR) & Josh Harris (BIR) So there you go! I'll be taking time to enjoy my work and play through a season with the Dawgs. And, no, I can't share the rosters, although I really wish it was possible. Thanks for that one, EA.
2 pointsWell...Guyon has skated with Mele and Dion a lot since arriving. Today, on power play offense it was Federow, Mele, Guyon Jones and Dion then it was Rowland, Fox, Murray, Witzel and Carvahlo. With that said, I still don’t know how the lines will shake out LOL.
