Let's* go Blackhawks! The Blues and Red Wings suck.

I hope the Las Vegas TBAs enjoy Jay Bouwmeester, #1 defenseman.

I'm guessing that's pretty much a green light for teams make trades to Vegas in return for not picking particular players, because what other kind of trades could Vegas make before the team even plays?

Damnit. Eastside Hockey Manager is hardcoded to have 30 teams in the NHL. The game is ruined.

Hot drat, I really hope they didn't base game logic around that and were smart enough to program that in as a changeable variable or they just wasted a lot of time with that re-write

All the pieces matter.


Somebody posted on the last page of the old thread that the new team would have the same odds in the entry draft as the the third worst team... The NHL should have just said "gently caress it, you go first." The team isn't going to win for a while, give the new fans someone to be psyched about.

It's probably more appropriate that they be indoctrinated into the rest of hockey fandom by being able to bitch about the Oilers winning the 1st overall pick again

I mean, the Maloofs are co-owners of the team.

That's really stupid for a game that simulates more leagues than just the NHL. Like, is there really no league in the world with more than 30 teams?

obviously this is a basketball team and not representative of what a hockey jersey looks like but the color scheme and design is pretty close

EDIT: these are actually pretty sweet (2014-15 season kit) and i could definitely see the hockey kit going for that sharp line shutter thing

also not only is assuming the colors will be black/silver/gold because of the website dumb, but black/silver/gold is tacky as gently caress and i guarantee they will not show up in september with anything good to show. i'm putting my money that the colors on the website are to make it look ~luxurious~ like they wish las vegas actually was

I honestly thought that Las Vegas' first major team would be from the NBA and not the NHL. You'd have the convenience of NBA refs going right to their bookies in person before the game.
