Strictly free agents. The WHA didn't sign anyone with a valid contract; the Hawks did sue them over Bobby Hull, claiming they had an option on his 1972-73 season due to the reserve clause in his contract, but lost in court.

(That may be one way to eventually get historical contracts working more realistically in the game: have a reserve clause mechanism that allows teams to renew contracts indefinitely at the end of the season they run out; then take it away in the summer of 1972 so there are a bunch of semi-free agents available for the WHA to target.)

Simulating the reserve clause would be an impressive addition, especially considering it was such a huge part in the league's acquisition of talent. I found it really difficult to get much talent in the previous versions of the game if I started before the 72-73 season. Either way, thanks for the replies.

For the World Cup, it sounds like the NA/Europe teams may be on the way out next time; as soon as we get some credible confirmation of that, we'll change it.
This is a bit disappointing as all I want is a best-on-best country-only style tournament.

My yearly dumb question: Is it possible to promote an assistant coach to head coach?

Not yet, but we're close to making that work - we added "position" ratings in various staff categories (like the player position ratings, but for head coaching, scouting, etc. instead of LW, RW, etc.) to the database a few months ago in preparation for it. Once we've got enough data collected to make those work well in the game, we'll be able to do proper movement between staff roles, including changing the jobs of your own staff.

I got halfway down the change list, and couldn't believe there was still more to come!

I'm glad to have supported each iteration of this game, each time you guys come to the plate with amazing new features and tweaks.

They've come so far from the first FHM I also bought all of the FHM games cause I wanted to support them and they have come a long way.
