    Starting a :sjs GM mode. Thinking they won't completely rebuild, but retool. I want to get rid of Thorton and Marleau as soon as possible, if we're not a playoff team they'll be dealt at the deadline. I'd like to keep it semi-realistic. Lines and small trades already done below. I'd appreciate some advice!

    FA signings:

    M. Handzus (550k for 1 YR)
    K. Gravel (650k for 1 YR)
    R. Whitney (1.4M for 1 YR)

    Most of these guys are rentals or just for depth. I found K. Gravel in the FA system, not sure if EA generated or just a mistake but he's a top 4 D with high potential.

    Lines:

    Marleau(86)-Thornton(88)-Pavelski(89)

    Whitney(82)-Couture(88)-Hertl (84)

    Nieto(81)-Wingels(83)-Smith (81)

    Burish(80)-Handzus(80)-Karlsson (79)

    Vlasic (88) - Burns (87)
    Dillon (82) - Braun (84)
    Gilbert (82) - Mueller (80)

    Niemi (85)
    Stalock (82)

    Want to improve: 1st line (youth), 2nd line LW, all of 3rd line, PROSPECTS! and goaltending.

    Happy with: 4th line, center depth, defense.

    Captain: Vlasic
    Alternate: Pavelski
    Alternate: Couture

    Trades:

    R. Torres for :pit 3rd rd 2015
    S. Hannah for :chi 3rd rd 2015
    J. Scott for :bos 6th rd 2015
    M. Irwin, :chi 3rd for T. Gilbert

    (plan to make more at trade deadline)

    (Good news and bad news.

    Good news, we were doing rather well so I decided to sim past the deadline without making any trades. All of our lines played well except the 3rd, which was expected. More good news, we made the playoffs. Joe Thorton led in points with 86. 60A! Couture led the team in goals with only 30.

    Bad news, we began to slip after the deadline and managed to pull the last wild card in the west. We play the presidents trophy winning Anaheim Ducks in the first round.)

    GAME 1, AWAY.

    2-1 OTL.

    Goal from: Braun.

    GAME 2, AWAY.

    2-0 L.

    No goals.

    (not as lopsided as expected, but still disappointing. let's even it up boys!)

    GAME 3, HOME.

    3-0 W!

    Goals from: Dillon, Pavelski, Whitney.

    GAME 4, HOME.

    5-3 L.

    Goals from: Hertl, Handzus, Vlasic.

    (oh boy. game 5, down 3-1.)

    GAME 5, AWAY.


    4-1 L.

    Goal from: Marleau.

    (disappointing, but it's pretty much we expected at the beginning of a retool/rebuild. I expect to deal Marleau and POSSIBLY Thornton at the draft for a top 10 pick)

    END OF SEASON 1.

    Gonna have to restart this, I lost the save file unfortunately. I don't even know how it happened. Sorry to disappoint guys, I'm gonna try and do the same thing with the same team again and I'll make a new thread.
