    I don’t see Q.Hughes, Gusev, Fox or Mikheyev there.
    The NHL looks good. They have all the recent trades and the players you’d expect (Gusev, Fox, etc.) and they have all the captains set correctly. The AHL doesn’t look perfect as most people were expecting and I didn’t have a chance to look at the CHL but I’d expect it wont be touched until next month.

    Hey buddy so the NHL looks good? That's all I really care about I mean I do want the AHL to be accurate but we'll take what we can get I guess. At least I'm comfortable starting a franchise now.

    Yeah I liked what I saw, going to make some personal edits like I always do and fire up a franchise.

    We waited for this crap,what a lazy lazy attempt,no photos,no player likenesses. Can't stand looking at blank portraits.Not even going to use it,it looks terrible.Madden,NBA 2k,Fifa and even NBA Live regularly release player updates.I really think it's just laziness and not caring on their part.I hear they had a rookie showcase where many rookies got scanned and where are those scans?Even home boy Quinn Hughes has a blank portrait and no likeness.I love the game even though it's not perfect but I just hate the laziness.

    Rookie showcases 2015 - 2019 .... bolded Players in the Game. No useful Roster to start a Franchise for die hard Fans with perfect Player knowledge.

    If I was the people putting out these rosters I'd be ashamed.

    Answer to me from a Developer in Twitter
    ,, FWIW I dont actually work on the team that does what you are asking about, so I can't really answer specific questions about whose image/likeness is in the game or not, and why.. but I know they are very good at what they do. ,,
    Why can other sports get these updates and not NHL.All they have use is a game face program and how expensive is it to upload a photo to the game.
    I know that, but I don’t know how I can bring this to this company or better to the art department of EA NHL. I try to do my best in Social media, or elsewhere in this case. If they would give me the possibility to do, would scan all faces from a pic, adding missing images, would create new Goalie masks and more and add this all to the game for free. Other cheap possibility is that they let work students during the summer to do this. They would do it for a very cheap price. This all would help the game bit better and getting customers back. It’s the small parts which makes this Game worser than it is.
    Good ideas,used to play the PC NHL series.
    They had mods where you would have detailed arenas with real ice ads and board ads.Tons of add-ons.Not unusual to have entire teams with all player likenesses,man I miss those days.
    So they deleted more players than they added.
    Sharks gained a few players but their AHL team lost most of their big prospects. Just completely disappeared.
    So gross

    Happens every year. Gotta wait for Dec or near end of the season to get most of them back.
    Also noticed CHL teams has been updated. Well from first team I saw at least, noticed they added few players.

    At least 6 including most of the best ones that were in the AHL

    Much, much more. I made a list and saved the possible which will be removed in 4 self created Teams in old Roster So it could be up to 50-70 Players. Exactly can not say cause need to count. It give one possibility to play with them in the new Roster. You create Teams with full of this missing Players at the old Roster. Merge this Roster than with the new and change your self created Teams with some Current when you start a new Franchise. But don’t forget to put the Players of the Teams which you will remove to other Teams or free agents, otherwise they are not in the game. It will be a Roster chaos but all Players will be in. The worse is that you have some fantasy Teams in but it works. But don’t try to move the Players from your self created Teams to move back to current Roster. They will disappear. The easier variant is to create the couple of new made 5 minutes Players without any pic by yourself and do not use this useless new from EA This is only a possibility for offline modes.

    This happens every year.  NHLPA deal is down so NHL guys go in.  PHPA deal usually isn’t done until late October-Mid November.  All the junior guys that moved to the AHL won’t be back in until then, so need to wait until December to start a Franchise.
    I don’t know why this shocks people since it’s a licensing thing that happens every year for the past 10 years.
    Every year it takes until December to start a franchise or season and with all the patches and gameplay updates you have about 3 months wasted or more.If they had a roster share and a game face program this would solve that.They only hurt themselves as I think many people wait till it's on sale or free on Ea Access.I usually buy both versions but this year I'm waiting for Ea Access for the ps4 . What's the point of paying full price for the game when you can't play franchise for months.Really think if we had a good custom program I would have started weeks ago.
    You know what would fix much of this mess? Roster share.....but EA flat out refuses to add it. I’ve just spent the past 2 weeks fixing the rosters and adding CAPS from the KHL and college as well as updating all AHL teams. I hate having blank silhouettes but that’s just more laziness on their part. Madden at least used the created players face image which would be much better than a blank black silhouette.

    Also people don’t seem to understand that the decisions of what can or can’t be added to the game isn’t even made by the developers. An EA executive will look at a piece of paper that says HUT makes money and then they’ll decide to allocate funds for that to the dev team.
    EA is a business, people keep buying the game and packs in HUT then there will not be major changes to anything else.

    It gives simple solution for that problem for offline gamers. Talked to Tyler Horsefall the last community manager about that last year. If they would let us add this new AHL freshman Player to the Player creation zone we could all save there to merge after with the new Roster and we have them in the game. It would not be against the law cause it’s only for offline gamers. If it would be against the law, why did they allow to let us play with the old Roster where this Players are in ? They need to remove it for that span where it is not allowed to play with them. ;-) Simple method, but he rejected. If there is a will, there is a way.

    Do you have a list of the removed players?

    I am sure some of this Players are in the game, please let me know. This are only my saved Players which from my thoughts would be I did not check the list.
    @Travolterjohn: Do I understand correctly? You can load older rosters, put the now missing players on created teams, merge these rosters with the newest, and then you can put the players from the created teams back to their actual teams?
    What happens to guys like Alex Newhook in the NCAA and may sign with the Avs after the college season? Like Cale Makar did last year?

    Not exactly. I tried that but the Players will disappear. Unfortunately they give us no transfer Button to put the Players back to there Teams. You need to replace your created Teams with a current Team. But be sure you add the current Team Players to another Team or to the free agents. Otherwise they will be not in the game. The created Players or Teams are private. EA can not delete Players from there. I tried that last year with Patrik Berglund. I made a new Buffallo Team with the old popular Jersey, moved there all current Player in, including Berglund. They removed Berglund later during the Season completely from the game. ( They did not add him to his Swedish Team ) so he was out to reach of the Rosters for every one but I saved him and replaced the current Buffalo Team with my created Buffalo. So he was in during all my Franchise Dynasty's I started. EA isn’t allways so clever ;-)

    Players are on the rosters at release because the AHL hasn't started, so all junior players still fall under CHL rights. Once the year starts and some 20 year olds or older prospects get sent to the AHL before playing in a regular season game, they now fall under the purview of the PHPA.
    Those are agreements done by player, so they cannot appear in game until this is done.
    So yea, technically, creating a prospect is illegal. But nobody is going to sue you for copyright infringements unless your selling rosters or maybe sharing in large volumes around the globe.

    Playing game 2 of my Rangers franchise and guess who scores the game winner for them, Ryan Callahan. He is retired and his rights were traded to Ottowa. He is never playing again. This was an October 7th update, I believe he retired in August.
    Has there been a Marc Savard sighting yet? I know he hasn’t played in several years but still ends up in the free agent pool, and is rated rather highly if I remember correctly.

    He's not retired. He's on LTIR. They've reduced his ratings in game, but he's on the roster as he counts against cap space.
    He's probably playing because the sens don't have much talent, so maybe he's better than a roster player.
