Point position on power plays.

My apologies in advance if this is considered a bug more appropriate for the technical support forum than the suggestion forum

One thing that has somewhat irked me while playing various iterations of FHM is that the point positions are very inflexible.

While you have the UI list the LD position as "point" and the RD as "defender", the "defender" position will only accept players who are RD at full tactical value. If your best offensive D is an LD, "point" is the only place he can play at full value; even if you did want him playing the listed "defender" role, regardless of if he's assigned a role from the Offensive D or Two-way D role list he takes huge role penalties if he isn't 19 rated as an RD (and even that will generally offer a 1 point tactical penalty).

This makes it so that if you want a forward on "point", it feels like you HAVE to have an offensive right D to compliment him, as even a merely OK RD has a better tactical effect than an all-star LD.

Forwards seem to be setup right for this, as RW, LW, or C are all fine at "point" but generally horrible at "defender", which makes perfect sense. Having defenders similarly ignore their natural side for the purposes of both "point" and "defender" positions would also make a lot of sense. The guy playing "defender" in a 1-3-1 powerplay for instance should generally not be particularly hampered by the side of the ice he hangs out on for 5 on 5 play when he's just working the zone near the blueline anyways, and in reality left handed D-men tend to play on the right on the PP and vice-versa for the purposes of getting their shot off quicker.

Apologies if I rambled on a bit much, I tend to do that...
