According to an EA moderator on the message board at nhl08.com, the first (and hopefully not last) significant roster update is coming very soon.
“We are working on a roster update. It is being prepared. We are waiting on the waivers to be signed by the AHL players. Trust me, it’ll be worth the wait b/c you’ll get all of the guys you wanted.”
That sounds like good news to me, especially for all you minor league hockey fans. Not only will every NHL roster be up to date, but every AHL roster will be intact as well. If you are playing a dynasty be prepared to start over because you’ll want your franchise to have 40 real players in the system.
Now if I can just get gameplay settings that I like. ::SIGH::
