  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. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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]

    Not quite as good as Football Manager, but if you're a hockey fan you should definitely check it out.

    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. Full Review »

    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. Full Review »
