  • They have to get permission to use their likeness. If they won’t give it to them, they won’t be in the game.
  • Looks like recency bias. Toronto : Keon, Apps, Armstrong. Montreal: Durnan, Vezina, Joliat , etc. Not blaming you for leaving them out but if they are going to make all time greats, then these and many more from the more distant past must be included.

    Obviously. Thanks for the fantastic input

    I really only included players that I have created in-game or are planning to create. Didn't do those listed because they don't wear helmets or their equipment can't be accurate (Ex: Dryden and his goalie mask). The only ones I did of that category are really big names like Hull, Orr, etc. and I gave them JOFA helmets. If they can't get the license for some of the older players, I would really like to see retro equipment or at least the equipment we've had before like Dryden style mask. Then you could create them yourselves and, possibly with roster share, share it to the community. I think I got every other big name alumni player on the list that doesn't fall into this category

    You’d love my Alumni rosters if EA ever have us Roster sharing.

    I made over 350 players from the early 90’s through to the late 2000’s.

    Pretty much everyone on your list. I made so many guys that I now have 31 Alumni teams (no Jackets or Wild) with no duplicate players (15 F, 8 D, 3 G).

    I’m playing a season with full roster control and no injuries and having a blast.

    It took me months to do, but it was well worth it. The hardest part was trying to determine which guys went on which teams as some of them had success on multiple teams. I just tried to make all the teams fair and balanced, so some of my placements seem out there, but they work.

    I can post my line ups if anybody is interested.

    Any specific way you used to do their attributes?

    That’s the only thing I’m struggling with. I do custom rosters for myself which I plan on releasing to public for NHL 21, and my NHL attributes and overalls are good, but difficulty getting alumni when points and goals in 1983 much different than 2020.

    That’s the only thing I’m struggling with. I do custom rosters for myself which I plan on releasing to public for NHL 21, and my NHL attributes and overalls are good, but difficulty getting alumni when points and goals in 1983 much different than 2020.

    Basically I set their attributes based on their career stats and from what I remember about them. I’m 46, so I used to watch all the guys I made. I know who we’re good skaters, who were superstars and who were bangers.

    As far as what I meant about their career stats, I used a method that was very simplistic to determine their OVR rating. If a player had 300pts, I made them an 82. 400pts, an 83. 500pts, a 84, and so on. Guys with 299pts or less vary in OVR but are never more than an 81, and they decrease the futher from 299pts they go, but never get lower than a 78 OVR.

    As far as player types, I used another simplistic method. Guys who had almost as many goals as assists, were snipers. Guys with 2 - 3 times more assists were playmakers. Other than that, I just went with 2 way, power forward (for the guys 6’2 or bigger), and grinder/enforcer for the guys I remember being tough guys.

    And as far as Potential, I did it this way.

    OVR - Potential
    78-80 - Bottom 6 F / 7th D
    81-84 - Top 9 F / Top 6 D
    85-87 - Top 6 F / Top 4 D
    88-91 - Elite
    92-97 - Franchise

    It’s not an exact representation of them, but it gets the job done. Like I said, I’m having so much fun playing a season with these guys, and the leaderboard is shaping up like it should with the better players rising to the top, so it’s good enough for me.

    Would be great if you could post your line ups. Thanks!

    I would add Sylvain Turgeon to the list for Hartford. With Francis and Dineen they were their top line during their peak in the 80s. I would also say Francis is more notable than Verbeek given he is 5th all-time in NHL scoring. Before you say it was all Pittsburgh, he had an identical 1.15 PPG with the Whalers as he did with the Penguins. That dropped off significantly to 0.75 PPG in Carolina. That probably had a lot to do with the supporting cast but I can tell you as someone who grew up in CT, he was the face of the franchise for 10 years.
