Commish: Steven Hicks

Simming Speed, Length & Presentation:
Regular Season - 7 EHM days simmed 3 times weekly (Sun, Tues and Thurs) with gameday results posted on the boards.
Playoffs - 2 EHM days per real day are simmed.

GMs, Nationalities and Language Nationality:
A wide mix of GM's, coming from Canada, USA, England, Italy, Australia and several Brazilian GM's.
English is the language used on the boards, though some of us have been learning a few Brazilean and Italian phrases.
We have 9 GM's who have been there from the 1st season, and many more that have been there for 3 or more seasons. It is an excellent set of GM's, the league's biggest strength.

Communication:
The forums is where the majority of communication occurs. All things GHL are discussed here, as well as a lot of non-GHL topics. MSN and Yahoo messanger are also used, depending on the GM.

Rules:
Can be found at: www.eastside-globalhockeyleague.com/league_rules1.html

Trades and Consistency:
There is a trade committee in place to prevent any one sided deals. Consistency is restored based on a formula (found in league rules) which take into account the players age/experience. Lost points can be restored based on players performance.

Roster Pack:
As we are one of the older leagues, the roster pack used was a (now quite) old version of Smetena's.

Magazine:
None at the moment.

EHM Knowledge/GM Profile:
We accept GM's of all knowledge level. One thing we pride ourselves on is teaching the how-to's and such of online EHM life. We have a significant amount of GM's whose first league was GHL and we have a post on the forums about all things a newer GM needs to know. We also have many friendly and helpful GM's that are more then willing to answer any questions and offer advice.
