After such a strong season in 2014-15 I feel I should begin targetting players via trade and free agency to fill the holes on the roster. There are plenty of prospects coming through, but still a fair way off being good enough.
Looking at the draft class, Connor McDavid was the only really decent prospect available so I considered trading away the New Jersey pick for future 1st round selections, until I won the draft lottery!

After a very successful regular season focus now shifts to the road to the Stanley Cup and the Columbus Blue Jackets (39-32-11) in the 1st round.
The series went to 7 games before being lost in OT (W1-4, L2-1, L2-5, W4-1, W2-3, L3-2(OT)).
Very disappointing to go out so early after such a good season but this team is far from done.

Going into the 2015 offseason I will be looking to strengthen the defence as I feel it is looking weak at the moment. Otherwise I believe Nashville is in good shape and should have another run at the playoffs again next season.

As I enter my 3rd season with Nashville the roster has really begun to take shape and look dangerous. The addition of Nyquist to the top line should make for a much better offensive unit along with the continuing development of Forsberg and co. Josi and Weber are forming a very strong defensive pairing and with 2 good young goalies another Stanley Cup run won't be far away.

The board is expecting playoffs, I'm expecting at least a Conference Final.

A great season was had, winning the Presidents' Trophy for best overall record as the Predators dominated most of the season. Gaining Gustav Nyquist was huge for the side as he strengthened a previously weak first line and posted solid numbers. Franky Palazzese exceeded all expectations in net, absolutely dominating at times. The prospects continue to grow and play well too.
This season will have gone to waste however if we don't win the Stanley Cup, so hopefully the regular season form carries over to the playoffs and Nashville lifts Lord Stanley for the first time!

The main aim of this offseason is to continue to add prospects to the roster while trimming a bit of fat. Otherwise I'm happy with the direction the roster is heading. Rinne and Gaustad have been trade blocked.

A succesful season both on the ice and in player progression with a lot of gains without anybody going backwards

*I'm tracking the results in tables and will post them at end of the regular season.*

After last seasons success, the board has asked for playoffs this season. I feel I had a decent offseason and the development of some of the prospects has helped to strengthen the roster.
Offensively the side is a bit weak on the top lines but the 3rd and 4th offer some good depth. Defensively the roster is looking good and same with the Goalie options.

47 wins in the regular season got me 4th in the West. After a strong season I'd like to finish with a strong run at the cup. Conference finals would be nice but I'm not expecting too much just yet.

In the playoffs I will be simming the first 2 periods and playing the 3rd to try and keep it interesting for myself.

Apr 24vs St. LouisLost, 2-0

Disappointing to go out of the playoffs so easily, but it was a strong season as a whole and can only get better I'm sure. Minnesota won the Stanley Cup.
Milwaukee progressed to the Conference Semi finals before losing in 7 games.

I'll be using the deadline day rosters with a few changes. Josi's potential has been raised to 4 stars because I really like him as a player. To even that out Ryan Ellis has been brought back to 3.5 stars. I've also created Filip Forsberg using stats from I'll be playing all the games without injuries and GM firing is off.

Just like in reality, I will look to get some offensive prospects into the side and develop them into a top side. Starting lines will be:
