    BTW I'm deciding to wait until March for updating the actual team roster
file seeing as the rosters won't freeze again until March. So anyone wondering
where that is, well there you go. If you want to go ahead and work on it
yourself and IF YOU NEED ANY HELP ON CAPS (Create-A-Players) OR JUST WANT AN

                            -ALSO IMPORTANT-

Fixed the missing Kevin Dineen retirement, for some reason I never typed that
in. Some one pointed it out in an email but I actually deleted it in a mass
deletion before I could respond to it so if you're reading this, please email
me again so I can give full credit. I do apologize.


         1-29-03 = Philadelphia acquires Eric Chouinard from Montreal for a 2nd
round draft pick. Phantoms thank Clarke.

         1-23-03 = Calgary makes two deals. Sending Jamie Wright to
Philadelphia to stop gap Justin Williams and his injury. They would later
acquire Matt Mottau from the Rangers. Montreal, San Jose and Boston all deal
cards together. Though as they say, three's a crowd. San Jose grabs McLaren,
Montreal grabs Sundstrom, Boston grabs Hackett and Jillson. Draft picks
involved as well but nothing high.

         1-22-03 = Darren Van Impe signs with Columbus. About time and people
were complaining that it took Byron Dafoe forever to sign. meh ^^ Atlanta and
Vancouver do a small swap of players. Jeff Farkas going to Atlanta in exchange
for Chris Herperger and Chris Neilson. Remember that both Herperger and Neilson
aren't originally from Atlanta's roster. If you're starting out on a default
roster you can find them on Ottawa and Columbus respectively. Also decided to
release Roman Ndur from Chicago as he was recently released from his club in
Austria. I think he was on loan to them but right now I'm not completely sure
his contract situation. I'll get back to you people on that. Fixed the missing
Kevin Dineen retirement, for some reason I never typed that in. Some one
pointed it out in an email but I actually deleted it in a mass deletion before
I could respond to it so if you're reading this, please email me again so I can
give full credit. I do apologize.

         1-17-03 = Claude Lemieux and Scotty Pellerin swap place and do-se-do.
Lemieux back in the playoff hunt with Dallas and Pellerin getting out of the
press box for once in Phoenix. Harold Druken winds up back in Carolina after a
small hiatus in Toronto. Kevin Hodson, announces his retirement. Only 56 NHL
games but your good nature and attitude will be missed. Hodson isn't orginally
in this game but if you used the old document to create his CAP, you can save
some room and delete him.

         1-15-03 = Denny Lambert winds up in Milwaukee (Nashville) John Grahame
moves from Boston to nice sunny Tampa. Washington adds good ole Josh Green from
the Rangers (orginally from the Oilers) while purging the Sens of Joel
Kwiatkowski while the Blues nab Steve Martins also from the Sens.

	 1-8-03 = Tom Barrasso ends his career, signing with the Penguins and then
retiring. Boris Mironov shipped out of Chicago to the Rangers. Oliwa is now
enforcing in Bean Town.

         1-1-03 = Kallio changes homes again. DesRochers and Wren change AHL
homes. Barrasso and Dopita released. Check out Philadelphia, Carolina,
Nashville, Toronto and Edmonton for the respective changes.

         I decided to fully split up the sections from my original FAQ and
post them seperately allowing for me to update them more efficently and easier.
I've renumbered all documents as version 2.00 and new documentation will start
from there on. I'll leave the original posted on GAMEFAQS.COM for now. The
other documents should be coming soon now that winter break has started and I
find myself with more free time than I've had in a while.
         The quick list of transactions, the CAP section, and the team files
documents should be coming real soon and they'll all be uploaded to first. Until then if you need any CAP information, check out
the original document at the same site. Any questions I'd be happy to answer
if you drop them by my mail box. Without any further interruption....
