Hey guys, I just started my first be a GM, I pretty much have the regular Wings line up.

I definitely want to keep:

Datsyuk
Zetterberg
Rafalski
Franzen
Filppula
Lidstrom
Helm
Abdelkader
Ericsson
Kindl
Holmstrom (Maybe)
Kronwall (Maybe)
Miller (I like him, but I'd be willing to trade)

Some players (1 offense and 1 of these defense) I'd like are:
Offense:
Gaborik
Kovalchuk
Toews

Defense:
Weber
Chara
Green
Niedermayer

Goaltenders:
Miller or Halak

I've had no luck trading at all, I need help with my trading, who should I trade for who?

Thanks!

Atlanta seems to give up Evander Kane via trade for not a whole lot for some reason and he has pretty good potential.
thanks offsides!

After starting my be a gm at the draft, I made a trade for Ryan Miller partway through the season. I traded Howard, Brad Stuart, and Rod Brind'Amour for Ryan Miller and their first round pick.

Don't start trading unless you don't mind making totally unrealistic deals. The trade value system is pretty weak; the trade values are not done well, in my opinion.

Agreed. I hope someday they improve trading all around. What bugs me the most is if you leave CPU trading on, how many ridiculous trades all other 29 teams make on a routine basis. Within three seasons, the rosters are almost completely different.
thanks offsides!

i agree. he can often be had straight up for a player that isn't as good. he has decent potential and is a good sniper. can definitely be an easy asset to acquire early on and to be developed.

i also have gotten kyle turris pretty easy in the game and he has A potential i think. definitely someone you can develop and flip if necessary.

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

I find the trading system useless, to be honest with you. It's easier just to wait for free agency. Usually a lot of good players don't get re-signed by their teams and just sit as free agents all season long. I know this happened when I was GM of Tampa Bay and I picked up Lidstrom to shore up my defense.

The only trade I can really remember was trading Franzen (and there may have been another role player or pick) for Kane.

the Gm mode is stupid I find it bad because in 3 years the cpu makes stupid trades and completely changes thier teams. in 5 years the game will be full of amazing players the team will have all eighty overall players and the third line center will be an 87 overall player. the trade value thing is bad, You will have players like Iginla who will sit out for years just sitting as a free agent, the Top 5 picks of the nhl draft are all defencemen I find the simming horrible. contracts are bad. i had so manny more reasons to hate Be a gm mode but iam so tired which is why there is so manny spelling mistakes

The Free Agent thing bugs me, too. It's not realistic to have players like Kane, Toews, Lidstrom, Chara, Kovalchuk, etc. sit in Free Agency for years. That is something they absolutely have to fix.

Get drafts, drafts and more drafts. And go in free agents for high-potentials. Very good to use for trades

I don't make any trades unless they're realistic. In my only full season in Be a GM mode, I only made one trade; it was at the trade deadline, it was with a team that was out of the playoff race, it was for a player in the last season of his contract, and it was for players who had good potential and years left on theirs.

It's cheap and cheesy to make blockbuster trades that are totally unrealistic. It's easy enough to destroy the AI in any game, even on the highest difficulty level; why make it even more imbalanced by stacking your team in totally implausible ways?

I always take all the high-potential free agents that teams dont sign. You can end up with some REALLY good players.
