Does Anyone Else Play NHL Eastside Hockey Manager 2007?
I was surprised to see it wasn't on here. With all the discussions we do on signings, caps, and trades I figured this would be a high favorite here. It is perhaps my favorite pass the time game.
It has no actual playing or anything you are GM and/or Head Coach of any team you want and it has the most accurate and in-depth database of players only rivaled by the NHL archives themselves. It uses a 2d engine to simulate games. It also has the most accurate trading and salary system ever in a NHL game. Console games are mostly about actual play and not managing which makes trades sort of corny. I used to just take an average player and keep trading for a player slightly better than him and 20 trades later would be picking and choosing which franchise players I wanted... Not to mention they are all figured out instantly which isn't really the case in hockey.
Anyway, I recommend it to you all who want to manage the Kings for the season. You can even get updated rosters so you can manage the Kings this offseason and make your own deals. Go try it out.
Edit - I forgot to mention it has a decent learning curve, once you learn the UI and all about the options you have it will soon become one of the most rewarding games you will ever play, stick with it, not to mention you gain an incredible knowledge of the NHL or International hockey by playing this game because it is so accurate. Anything you can do in hockey management today you can do in game. And it has nearly Every single player and staffer known since the beginning of the 2007 season Aged 14-80.

Has anyone played this? I downloaded the 6 month free trial but in order to read the game manual you actually have to purchase the game. I'd really appreciate it if any of you have it. Please PM me. I heard so many great things about this game and I need to know how to get started. Thanks!
