Awesome hockey game. Is anyone playing this?

I love the fact you can play as classic teams, but one problem. I want to play a season with a classic team, or better yet, play a season with a dream team of classic players. I can't figure out how to trade classic players and I can't find the classic teams in the list of league teams.

Can anyone help me out here? I tried posting on some gaming forums but it seems no one is playing this game anymore.

how do you play as classic teams?

There's about 40 or 50 historic teams, most of them are locked at the start. '51 red wings, '78 habs, '84 oilers etc are all available to play. Awesome stuff. Two problems:

There are no names for the classic teams, something to do with the NHLPA. The player's names can be edited however and there are name guides online.

The second problem is the point of this post. I can't figure out how to use these teams in anything but exhibition play. I would love to use these players in a season but can't figure out how.
