  1. Waited this long for this.And of course players are missing.I use Carolina and Jake Bean is gone!Added prospects with no portrait.Any roster maker could have done better.And still can't add legends.

    Happy they've done a big CHL update earlier in the year. Now we just need to wait for the AHL process. AHL/PHPA really need to try and streamline this one of these days.
    Yeah, that's always the downside of the first roster update. Gain the NHL debuts & updated CHL, but lose the majority of guys transitioning from junior to the AHL. Which can be some pretty important prospects since they can't put them in until they have the signed PHPA waiver.
    Usually the majority of them are back in a November update, but that seems far off if you're looking to start a franchise. I often wonder if it's better to start one before this update, as I assume you miss out on fewer prospects in total.
    Wish they'd give us the option to 1) share rosters, but at the very least, 2) import/export players like you can with MLB The Show. I'll await the next one. No rush on my end. We do this drill every year.
    They're still missing 2017 AHL rookies like Jeremy Bracco, Jonne Tammela and Jeremiah Addison, who weren't even in last year's game!
    I know for Buffalo/Rochester they're missing Will Borgen, Andrew Oglevie and Brandon Hickey, three important prospects. They're also missing Sabres prospect Matej Pekar who plays for Barrie, and three of our defenseman in the SHL and Liiga.
    Frederic, Kuhlman, Hughes, Sherman, Gilbert, Dickinson, O'Connor, Shvyryov, Point, Calderone, L'Esperance, Pope, Marody, Vesey, Vesel, Kiselevich, Rempal, Eyssimont, Evans, Anderson, Yakovlev, Johnson, Sharangovich, Seney, Lindgren, Sturtz, Angello, Lafferty, Birks, Praplan, Letunov, Radil, Foley, Stevens, Poganski, Colton, Shumakov, Samsonov, Pinho, Suess, Cajkovsky...those are just important prospects they're missing from the NCAA or a couple from Russia, not including the CHL prospects they just took out.
    So let's say they're missing like 75-100 important prospects that belong in GM mode...they had all summer to get these waivers signed, they know for the most part who will be in the AHL.

    It's not on EA. It's the PHPA waiver, which can't happen until players actually end up in the AHL. Has nothing to do with the video game.
    I'll check the Blues tonight.. but I'll probably start. Don't really want to wait another month as I play all my games anyway and only get about 2-4 full seasons in... which isn't really enough to get many of the prospects up into the NHL.

    And it takes two to tango... While many players are gamers these days, I doubt this is a priority for them, the teams, union rep, etc. Same goes for face scans; sure teams pass through Vancouver, but squeezing in a trip to EA studios in a day or two likely just isn't possible.

    I get what your saying, but I always run with my favorite NHL team which is the Red Wings. It sucks because they are in rebuild mode so the fact that this roster update is missing our top prospect Filip Zadina, that's huge. With the AHL season now underway hopefully they can get these missing prospects in the game

    I see what you're saying as well.. now I might just have to wait. :)
    What I don't understand is their first game was on 10/5 so I'm not sure why Zadina isn't in the game with this last roster update?
    Edit: per EA, AHL players have to sign a waiver in order to be put into the game (it's crazy this has to happen every single year)

    Yea I'm definitely going to have to wait, there are some big name prospects missing because they are making the move from the juniors to the AHL this year. Another big one I noticed is Jake Bean from Carolina.

    It is so bizarre that Zadina is missing now. He is actually in the original September release day roster with Grand Rapids.....
    I was just having a look at the latest roster now, it’s like he’s deleted from the game.
    It doesn’t affect me because I started my dynasty about 3 days after release & I have him.
    But what does affect me is how badly EA rated rookies like Cholowski, Hronek & Sulak on the original release. I’m into my 2nd season and they are still 4 rating points below what this new roster has them set at.
    It might be worth having a look at past rosters and picking an earlier one. This one seems full of holes. The list of rookies added just doesn’t cut it for me to start over.

    While I understand the license issue EA faces there are still usually missing players, innacurate ratings, and the overall delay due to license issues means you don’t start your franchise or season until late November early December....absurd. They acknowledge the communities wish for a roster share for over 2 years but never give us one nor any explanation as to why not. It leaves me to believe they simply do not care about us offline gamers who are serious about our franchise or seasons. I bet if they could charge us to share rosters it would be in the game.
    As much as I want to play sooner it may be a better idea for them to put the game out in December.I find the first couple of months wasted as we get patches and have to also wait for useable rosters.Here is an idea, roster share and in the past did they not have to put games out that did not need patches.The product was tested and did not require any updates.Just a thought.

    You have to pick your poison with rosters or you'll be waiting until December to play.

    It's crazy that we don't have a roster share feature yet. I love the OSFM rosters for MLB the show, if they added a roster share feature to this game it would allow us to make edits ourselves and share them with the community. For me I just can't personally bring myself to start a franchise with the caliber of prospects that are missing from this roster.
    I just wish we could take a roster update and play a franchise mode with all teams and update along the way during the season reflecting call ups, injuries, FA signings, etc. It drives me crazy when the other franchise teams sign free agents and it destroys some semblance of realism for me.
    Right now, being limited to season mode and I'll never play more than a season. I'm still playing NHL '18 and updated the rosters and digging it- just wish I could share with other people too.
    For all my fellow Red Wings fans; Zadina is on one of the prospect teams. I traded him from the prospect team to aa CHL team for a random CHL player (to keep the prospect team at 19) then jived him to the Griffins.
    The AHL issue drives me nuts every year. I am  Rangers fan. So for example, I gain a better, useable Brett Howden, and some other guys. But we  lose guys like Meskanen, Lindqvist in the AHL, which I can go add back to the team myself but should have been transferred already. Then you lose Ty Ronning, Tim Gettinger and Ryan Lindgren still isn't even in the game even though he played a handful of games in the AHL last year, and it was know that he would be there again this year. It is frustrating. I guess we all just have to continue to wait until November each year to start a proper franchise. It has become very frustrating but I get the licensing/paperwork aspect of things. Then you have to take into account all of the KHL guys that aren't even in the game still in 2018. The KHL and NHL need to start getting along to fix that. 
    I don't really want to be waiting any longer to start a Franchise so which roster should I go for?
    The Sep14th roster which seems to have the most players but not in the correct places
    Or the Oct 11th Roster which is more up to date but seems to be missing players.
    Firstly, am I correct with the above statements? Secondly which should I go for?
    Or should I wait a couple of more weeks until the AHL players are added back in?
    Hey guys,
    Just thought I'd let everyone know that along with the aforementioned Zadina work around, you can still find Jonathan Dahlen in the SHL and Martin Kaut in the Czech league.
    Edit: same goes for Erik Brannstrom, he's in the SHL and Olli Juolevi, in Liiga.
