  • Summary: Officially licensed by the National Hockey League and the National Hockey League Players' Association, NHL: Eastside Hockey Manager 2007 offers players an unrivalled hockey management experience, with a brand new game engine to bring the player even closer to the action during each nail-biting game. New tactical settings now give players even greater control over your team's playing style, with a plethora of additional options. Will players take advantage of new tactical options for breakouts, forechecking and implementing zonal systems to steer their franchise to Stanley Cup glory? Or will they place their faith in designated playmakers and face-off takers to carry their team to World Championship victory? The game allows you to manage your own franchise in over 20 playable leagues from around the world, including the NHL, AHL, Major Junior, DEL and Swedish leagues. No other hockey game has more licensed leagues. The player database has been vastly expanded since last year, now boasting an incredible 45,000 players and staff at your disposal, with a shot-stopping total of 3,000 teams from around the globe.

  1. And while NHLEHM 2007 doesn't look much different than NHLEHM 2005...it's still a fantastic game, and the best in its genre. [Feb. 2007, p.77]
  2. Getting better every year. The 2D match engine is awesome and the only thing the game still needs is real-time line changes. Now it is done by AI only. [Dec 2006]
  3. Start playing NHL Eastside Hockey Manager 2007 now, and you might not come up for air until after the real hockey season ends next spring.
  4. Due to its price and overall incredible level of quality, detail, and care, EHM 2007 is one of the best values on the market. If you ever spend any significant amount of time tweaking your lines or simulating through seasons in either NHL 2K or EA’s NHL series, you will adore Eastside Hockey Manager.

    Simply put. If you like Ice Hockey, and enjoy the aspect of being a team Head Coach (tactics) or General Manager (business side) You need this game, and will enjoy it. Those familiar with Football Manager will recognise the menus and layout straight away. It has a Football Manager 2008 look and feel to it. It is very in-depth and still to this day, has a very active community over at TheBlueLine Forums. Expand

    In simple words: not perfect, but still (and we are in 2013...) the best hockey manager game on the market...

    I'm still playing it... and
    there is a very active community (Blue Line, for example) that provide updates to rosters and other useful things. Expand
