My first season just finished and I managed to get to conference finals, managed to take Columbus past Red Wings in the first round. I lost in 5 but quite happy considering my top two defensive pairings were Maclaren and Berard and Methtot and Kloucek. I managed to trade some picks to get some good offense and Nabokov in goal though.

Its a shame though. They have a soccer management game that is out of this world. Eastside was behind the soccer game in development, but had they kept it going I reckon in around two years Eastside would have been an outstanding product.

Anyone know if there have been any relatively recent roster updates? Not holding my breath, but...

I play the cr@p out of this game. It's not very action packed like a console game, but great for being a GM. I've played mainly in the ECHL but have a couple seasons with the Kings. The first thing I did was get a goalie. Believe it or not I traded Clouts for Nittamaki(sp). Got some cap space, plus (in the game) he's a much better goalie. Made the team instantly competitive.

The hockey manager has been using a 2-3 years old football manager engine and I don't see how that could have changed. I was in Sports Interactive building this spring and the difference was obvious. There were about 20-25 people working on Football Manager game, while there has never been more than 3 people on the EHM project. Make that 3.5, one of the FM guys was helping them with the database implementation.
