In order to work with your roster, you will need a program with which to open the league files.

That program can be downloaded here.

Then download and run the support files, found here.

Once you have the program, run the .exe file. It may tell you that no league file is loaded. That's okay, you're going to get that from here.

Open up the league files through the STHSClient program, and double click your team once it loads. From there, you have a few options.

  • You can change your ticket prices for each level.
  • You can click on your roster, and from there name your captain and assistant captains, set your trade block or send guys to the farm...or bring them up to the pros.
You need to have a 'legit' roster. These are the requirements:

  • No team can have more than 50 players in total.
  • No team can have more than 25 players on their pro roster.
  • No team can dress more than 20 players at a time (2 goalies, 4 defense, 2 of each forward position are minimum. The remainder you can put anywhere you want in the lineup)
  • No team can exceed the $56.7M salary cap (pro roster only) during the regular season and playoffs.
  • No team can drop below the $34.5M salary (pro roster only) floor during the regular season and playoffs.
Okay, so once you have your roster set, exit out and click on Lines. Here you can make up your lines however you wish. Note that a player who doesn't play a certain position will be at a disadvantage if you put him in such a position.

Don't forget to set your strategy sliders as well...they actually do work.

Once you've set your lines, you can (optionally) set your Farm lines. While it isn't as glamorous, winning the AHL Championship nets you $1M at the end of the season, so it's worth taking care of!

After all that, save your lines, and upload the file here. I've used Detroit's Upload page as the example. You would go to your own team's page and click on Upload Lines. The file you are looking for is a .shl file. If you were Detroit, the file would be called 'redwings.shl'. Do NOT upload the SLHL.sts file!

That's it. The only thing you really need to remember from here on out is to make sure you LOAD your saved file each time you want to work with your roster, else you could be starting from scratch each time!
