-NOTE- Because of the huge volume of trades that occured at the deadline, there
may be a couple mistakes. I'm taking a long time to proof read it so I figured
for those who need it, I'll post this up for you to make some of the changes. I
could get a greater proof reading going if other people checked it out with me
going. The final update shall be finished no later than the playoffs as I'm
working on the NHL2003 guide as well. I apologize for any mistakes made in this
last update and I'd appreicate any errors found.

II.   Version History

         -IMPORTANT-
         Do NOT email me about the following : Do NOT email me about gameplay
questions, there's the gamefaqs board or the instruction manual for that. Do
NOT email me wondering how you can score less goals. Most sports games today
have SLIDER SETTINGS that you can put against your favor to make it harder. Try
there. And if that doesn't work, stop shooting so much. You can't score 15
goals a game if you don't shoot. There, problem solved.
         DO NOT email me about trades and such thinking I don't know about
them. I know about them. I just haven't had time to add it or such. This
document has fallen down my list of 'side-projects' to do and even farther down
my list of things I must do. You'll have everything finally updated some time
after the trade deadline freeze and before the playoffs. I promise you guys
that, I'll have everything done before the playoffs. If you want an analysis of
a trade or want to talk about it in a breakdown, yes please feel free to
contact me over it. I'd appreicate that and I'd be more than over joyed to do
so in that case. I apologize if this sounds rude to some, it's not meant to.
It's just meant to hopefully enforce the guidelines I had set.

	  February 16, 2003 - Version 2.16 - Bigger update as I've been busy and I
know no one really reads this thing anyway. Go see Daredevil the movie first of
all. Okay for me it was ruining a childhood hero but I want to see this suceed
so he goes mainstream and we get a (hopefully better) sequel. As for trades
updated in here...

          Matt Cullen (16), Pavel Trnka (7) to Florida from Anaheim
          Sandis Ozolinsh (8), Lance Ward (4) to Anaheim from Florida

          Alexei Kovalev, Dan LaCouture, Janne Laukkanen, Mike Wilson for
          Mikael Samuelsson, Joel Bouchard, Richard Linter, Rico Fata
          Check Pittsburgh and Rangers.

          Now leave me alone about not updating.

          January 29, 2003 - Version 1.29 - Eric Chouinard packs his bags for
Philadelphia. Second Round Pick, that popular guy, goes to Montreal. Early
congrats and best wishes to the Dwayne Roloson family. Roloson's wife should be
giving birth to their second child any time now.

          January 24, 2003 - Version 1.24 - Hackett makes a second stint in San
Jose only for a couple seconds as he winds up next in Boston. Nik Sundstrom
finds his way to Montreal, Jillson gets swapped for McLaren. Calgary makes a
couple moves shipping out Jamie Wright to Philadelphia and bringing in Matt
Mottau from the Rangers. Atlanta acquires a new young gun in Jeff Farkas for
Herpeger and Neilsen.

          January 20, 2003 - Version 1.20 - Small update as Darren Van Impe
signs a contract with Columbus. Odd and people complained about the length of
time Dafoe sat as a free agent.

          January 17, 2003 - Version 1.17 - Claude Lemieux finds rebirth in Big
D, Harold Druken is heading back to Carolina via waivers, Jay Henderson moving
to the Rangers...oh wait they forgot good ole Jay in this game...nevermind.
Scotty Pellerin moves to Phoenix in the deal for Claude.
Kevin Hodson announces his retirement from professional hockey. He will stay on
with the Lightning as a goaltending coach for the youngsters. For a guy that
only played 56 NHL games, you're attitude and good nature will be missed.

          January 15, 2003 - Version 1.10 - Got sick of just moving up a
hundreth each time so this is now desginated 1.10 instead of 1.07 even though
nothing major is added beyond a couple trades and waiver movements. John
Grahame sent packing in Boston to Tampa where he'll be backing up Khabby. Josh
Green moves from the Rangers to the Caps (remember he's orginaly on the Oilers
for those starting from scratch) while the Caps pirate defenseman Joel
Kwiatkowski from the Sens and the Blues steal Steve Martins from the Sens. I
keep forgetting to move Denny Lambert to Nashville, don't do the same. May I
also add Mike Danton (New Jersey) is a moron.

          January 08, 2003 - Version 1.06 - Oliwa now enforcing Bean Town and
Mironov shipped off to the Rangers. Oliwa (NYR-BOS) Mironov (CHI-NYR) Tom
Barrasso signs with the Penguins and retires.

          January 04, 2003 - Version 1.05 - Dopita and Barrasso heading to the
FA pile, Kallio making his third spot of the season this time in the city of
brotherly love. Toronto and Nashville do a deal, Carolina and Phoenix argee.
Sacco surfaces in Philly.

          December 20, 2002 - Version 1.04 - Forgot the Boumedienne for
Melanson deal. Check Ottawa and Washington respectively. Christmas trade
deadline hits with Paul Ranheim changing teams, Check out Philadelphia.

          December 18, 2002 - Version 1.03 - Rangers sign some warm bodies
(Cross, Tibbets.) Florida also signing a warm body (J.Rivers) Look them up in
your Free Agents section.

	  December 14, 2002 - Version 1.02 - McGillis for Ragnarsson. Look at
Philadelphia and San Jose for details. Fixed Robert Petrovicky's name. Players
find new homes Nielson (CLM-ATL), Kallio (ATL-CLM), Dunham (NSH-NYR), Eastwood
(STL-CHI), Murray (NYR-NSH), Kloucek (NYR-NSH), Green (EDM-NYR), Druken
(VAN-CAR-TOR). Reid Simpson to Nashville FINALLY added.

          November 27, 2002 - Version 1.01 - Yushkevich, Lilja, Bednar all find
new homes.

          November 23, 2002 - Version 1.00 - Due to mainly lack of interest,
lack of time, lack of heart in the project and lack of the ability to use CAPs
(create-A-Players) in franchise mode, I've decided to scratch the whole roster
and CAP updates. If you need line combinations, 23 man rosters and information
for the basic players not in this game, head over to my NHL2003 FAQs. I'm only
updating this one for transactions. It seems mute to give you Ivan Majesky's
stats and CAP ratings if the damn game won't even let you use them in the game
mode they emphasis the most. Also add the release of Metroid Prime as another
main reason I'm not doing this document...though that could also go under lack
of time.

          November 14, 2002 - Version 0.50 - Document started; Transactions
listed; Create-a-Players (CAPs) still to come

          Whats Coming Next - Version 1.?? - I seriously do not know. I'm going
to tend to keep it down to transactions but if I get the motivations to do the
other things, I might in fact go for the whole she-bang but right now that
looks doubtful. Next Update will probably be just to fix up some more
transactions as well as take out any references and questions about me doing 23
man rosters and CAP sections. I apologize for any inconveince but my NHL2003
document will be the only thing I update so head over there for line
combinations and such. It can always be found at gamefaqs.com exclusively (for
the moment.) Maybe I can hook up with a web site maker and put something better
together. If you need any help or opinions on created players, drop me a line
and I'd be more than happy to discuss players with you. I'm always up for
debate.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
III.  Introduction

          This FAQ will NOT be on how to play NHL2k3 because well, isn't that
what the game manual is for? In time I might add hints and strategies to this
document but right now I'm concentrating on the roster aspect of the game.
When you open up any sports game you will immediately notice that most of the
roster seems out of date because they set the roster for shipping long before
shipping so many of the transactions that occur in the league between the
roster set date and the shipping date, don't make the game.  Other mistakes
come from the guy in charge of the rosters being lazy and forgetful to where a
player has signed. I cannot blame him because it is a lot of work and a lot of
these players are just career minor leaguers or fringe players and hard to keep
track of any way.

          That is where I come in.  I have to the trouble of listing every
single omission to the rosters of NHL2K3 for the Playstation 2 and XBox.  This
FAQ will be updated a couple times from the current rosters until it's complete
and then it will only be updated every month (reflecting call-ups and such)
unless a major trade occurs, in which case I'll add that to the list. But for
the most part the NHL Line Combinations and the NHL 23-Man Rosters sections
will only be updated once a month. It's hopefully enough to keep you coming
back for more.

         For anyone wanting to check out what I hope this document to ressemble
can jet over to my work on NHL2003 (The EA Sports Hockey game) also placed on
www.gamefaqs.com and look there. The NHL2003 document is still my main priority
and this NHL2k3 thing is just a side project and because I take pity on you
Sega fans.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
IV.  FAQs to the Author

         Here's where you can send in YOUR questions for me to answer. Since I
started these roster projects I've been getting a lot more mail and a
lot more mail means I'm probably getting a lot more questions and for some
reason a lot of those questions are centered around this document or the NHL
now. Not that I'm complaining because I'm getting something other than spam for
once in my mail box. I'm still accepting questions for this section so if you
have one or a suggestion, just contact me. What? How do you contact me? Well
keep reading this section and you'll find out.

Q  When do you update this FAQ?
A   When I have time basically. There's a lot of projects I have ahead of this 
   one.

Q  Where can I contact you?
A    You can email me exclusively at dynamitehack91@yahoo.com or if you really
     need to get a hold of me I'm on AOL Instant Messanger at dags91 as well
     as Yahoo Messanger at my email address. I don't mind talking to people on
     there so don't be shy. Just don't be rude. I'm also away from my computer
     alot without my away message up so if I don't answer back in a couple
     minutes, don't think I'm trying to snub you or being rude, I just forgot
     to take the couple seconds to put up the away message. So just leave your
     message there and where I can get a hold of you online and I'll get back
     to you ASAP.

Q  Where can I get the latest update of this document?
A    I'll always post this document on www.gamefaqs first. I do not have a
     website so this is my best exposure. So check gamefaqs.com for each
     update. If the document gets around to other sites (still legally in tact)
     then that's great but I'm only going to post the newest ones on
     www.gamefaqs.com.


Q  Have you done any other FAQs?
A    Yes actually. I did the same thing for EA Sports' NHL2003 and that can    
     also be found on www.gamefaqs.com. That document is still my main priority
     but I will try not to neglect you 2k3 users too much.

Q  You have So-and-So on the wrong team, you have So-and- So's jersey number
   wrong, you have So-and-So's position wrong, you have So-and-So under the
   wrong team transaction, ect.
A     Chances are I know about it but have not gotten around to fixing it.
      However, I won't mind a polite email about it and that can key me in what
      needs to be fixed. I'd even appreciate it in some cases.  Some of the
      positions will be different from what the game lists them as because I
      didn't write down the positions while I was writing down who needed to go
      where so I typed in the position I know they play which will very from
      what the game has usually. The player probably can play that position but
      I'd like an email about it because I want to get this as accurate to the
      game as I can get, not as accurate as to what I know. I'd be deeply in
      your debt there.  Also if I have a player on the wrong team transaction
      list, then PLEASE do drop a line because I didn't write down all the
      transactions when I was going through  the game and I forgot where some
      of the players came from originally in this game and that is what
      happened in those instances.

Q  Do you have any rules for contacting you via mail or AIM?
A     Yes. Please don't email me about trades, signings, call-ups or any roster
         moves. Chances are I know it before you. I'm pretty aware of what goes
on         in the league and I'm not trying to be rude but you're wasting your
time.         Small low minor transactions might throw me off for a while but
I'll get          them before too long. Also do not email me about anything to
do with the          real game itself. Most likely it's in the manual and if
it's not in the           manual, it's probably not in the game. I use the PC
version so I can't            help most console users anyway. If you want my
strong (and usually long)          opinion of a deal I might be more than
willing to talk about it over AIM          or an email conversation but for the
most part don't contact me about             current roster moves, they should
be in the next update.
