Eastside Hockey Manager

Recommended Posts

I'll begin by explaining a little bit what Eastside Hockey Manager (EHM) is. It's a hockey game where the user serves the role of the GM/coach for an NHL organization. You control contracts, drafting, ticket prices, scouting (though it's not that useful once you really learn the game), player training, and lines. You don't actually play the games, though, as they are simulated. It's the perfect game for all those arm-chair GMs out there!

This site is where you can download the game and read up on it. If you're interested, give it a try and get in some practice against computer GMs. If you find that you enjoy it, you should really think about joining HWL. We've been around for 5 years now and are on our 9th season. We have a great group of core guys, but have run into some problems lately with people becoming too busy in real life to be able to manage their team any longer. We would love to get some new people into the league so that it doesn't die out. If you give the program a shot and think you want to join, drop me a PM and I'll hook you up with some more information about the league.

is it free? Why is it better the NHL 10?

Yes, it's free. When it comes to consoles, I only have a Wii, so I haven't played an EA NHL game since I bought NHL 08 to play at a friend's nearby apartment (he's since moved). At least back then, I always found the career/GM mode on EA's NHL games to be severely lacking. You simply didn't have a lot of options to play with and it was pretty boring. It never came close to career/GM mode in the Madden series. I'd say EHM is much more like that. You have control of pretty much everything and it's very hands on. The game itself is quite old, but since it's not at all graphics based it's not an issue. But because it is an older game, the default rosters are quite out of date. In our league, we continually input real life draft picks to keep a hint of realism and currency to it.

Wow, we still Quebec (AHL) on the game,

The game seems pretty good from what I have played from it,

Also, got this as news

23-6-2001 Montreal Canadiens trade rumoured

Montreal Canadiens are rumoured to be planning a trade sending defenseman Mike Komisarek and right wing Josef Balej to Tampa Bay Lightning for center Vincent Lecavalier

Oh, I might as well list the teams that are currently open. Of course, given that we're so far into our game and the fact that we all love trading, no roster looks anything like it does today, haha. But I know there are some teams people just wouldn't want to associate with.

Boston - a middling team in need of direction

Calgary - a lower end team, but with lots of prospects who could get them into the picture

Chicago (maybe) - not sure if the GM really quit or not, but if this team is open, they are a Cup contender

Columbus - a team that could use a lot of help, was left in shambles by the former GM

Los Angeles - a solid playoff team

Nashville - a solid playoff team with a nice mix of vets and youth

New Jersey - the former GM decided to rebuild, tore apart the team, and then gave up on them

Philadelphia - a lower end team with some youngsters who could make them a playoff team sooner than later

I'll take Columbus if no one wants it...

We just finished the playoffs (I won the Cup with the Habs! WOO!) and we've started hiring some people. We've already filled a few spots, but we've also had a couple more teams open up. There are plenty of options from which to choose. We've got everything from Cup contenders to rebuilding teams available.

Boston - a middling team in need of direction; won the draft lottery, so will have their choice of Hall or Seguin

Calgary - a lower end team, but with lots of prospects who could get them into the picture; holds the 7th pick

Chicago - one of the league's top teams led by Lecavalier

Los Angeles - a solid playoff team that could make a run with an active GM

Minnesota - the only thing holding this team back was an inactive GM at the end of the season; a totally stacked D core

Nashville - a solid playoff team with a nice mix of vets and youth

Philadelphia - an improving team that isn't far off from making it back into the playoff picture; holds the 8th pick

St.Louis - a playoff team who needs an active GM to help them make a real run before their window closes

We're just starting preseason and still have a number of teams available (some of the new guys didn't have the patience to learn the game and quit already).

Calgary - a lower end team, but loaded with prospects who could have the team in contention with 2 seasons

Chicago - a perennial contender that needs a GM to lead them before their window closes

Columbus - a lower end team, but has some prospects who could get them into the playoff picture

Los Angeles - a solid playoff team that could make a run with an active GM

Minnesota - the only thing holding this team back was an inactive GM at the end of the season; a totally stacked D core

Nashville - a solid playoff team with a nice mix of vets and youth

St.Louis - a playoff team who needs an active GM to help them make a real run before their window closes

Washington - a playoff team that is only being held back by not having a GM

Still looking for a lot of GMs, so check it out. It's a lot of fun and you'll love it!

P.S. I'm not on this board much anymore because I hate the new format, so I might not respond right away to a PM. I try to login at least once a week, though, so it shouldn't take too long for me to return your message.
