Hello guys! I'm going to start my first written GM Mode series with the New Jersey Devils.:new Wish me luck because it will be needed with this shitty Devils roster! Settings: - Custom rosters (will introduce those later today) - Going to do full rebuild (Plan: years 1-2 bottom 5, 3-4 playoffs, 5-> SC Contender) - Trying to play "Johnny-like" realistically so no trades for Franchise players as well as no for grabbing all best FAs every season - Injuries ON (minimum), Trade&GM Difficulty HARD :new Starting lineup :new(no trades yet) Mike Cammalleri (86) - Adam Henrique (86) -Michael Ryder (83) Patrick Elias (84) - Scott Gomez (83) - Steve Bernier (83) Martin Havlat (82) - Travis Zajac (83) - Jacob Josefson (81) Danius Zubrus (80) - Tuomo Ruutu (80) - Jordin Tootoo (80) Andy Greene (85) - Adam Larsson (85) Eric Gelinas (83) - Damon Severson (82) Jon Merril (83) - Bryce Salvador (80) Cory Schneider (90) Keith Kinkaid (81) Under 27yo + over 3,5Y potential TWF Henrique (86) 24yo 4,0 yellow TWF Josefson (81) 23yo 3,5 green TWD Larsson (85) 21yo 4,5 red TWD Gelinas (83) 23yo 4,0 green TWD Merrill (83) 22yo 4,0 yellow TWD Severson (82) 20yo 4,0 yellow ------------------------------------------- SNP Reid Boucher (75) 21yo 3,5 yellow PWF Stefan Matteau (73) 20yo 3,5 yellow PLY Mattias Tedenby (74) 24yo 3,5 yellow So, there're two major problems with this organization as I can see it: it's old and the prospect pool is nonexistent. Gonna fix this through the draft but propably going to trade some older players for 3,5y-4,0y prospects too. Good things are, I have 4 future top-4 defenders already in my team, expecting long careers as Devil from them, and last but not least 90 overall elite goalie Cory Schneider. Not too shabby. Next I'm going to show you the rosters I edited (took 3 long days), after that I'm set to make my first trades and start the simulation!
