Gametime PS3 NHL13 GM Connected League

Hey everyone. By now most of the hardcore EA Sports NHL series fans have probably already downloaded the demo that dropped earlier this week. If you hadn't already heard they redesigned the Be A GM mode into something called GM Connected. Essentially this means that there can be entire leagues of GMs playing using XBL or PSN. A few of the PS3 users were talking last night about starting a league for SLGT, or at least a PS3 league (still haven't gone cross platform). I'm trying to gauge interest in such a league. hildymac pointed out that if there is an extended lockout (knock on wood) this could be a fun alternative to not playing fantasy hockey.

In addition to trying to gauge interest I'd like to know how interested everyone would be in actually playing the games. I know that there would be some disparity between the skill levels if there are people new to the game. I know that this year you are also allowed to play on the bench as the coach and for those that wouldn't necessarily be able to devote as much time, there is a mobile app for all the coaching/gm moves that you would normally make.

I think this would be a lot of fun and would like to hear back if there is any interest. Also in case anyone doesn't follow me on twitter and didn't see this: toys r us is offering the game for the preorder price of $44.99. This is $15 less than gamestop or amazon (although amazon is giving a $15 credit to those that preorder at the $60 price). The offer is available here http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=13164769. It doesn't show the price but once you get to your cart it shows up, I think that has something to do with it being less than MSRP.

Here is a link to the description of GM Connected game mode. Let's Go Blues
