I found this game around about the same time I found NHL Rebuilt on the hunt for Hockey games on PC
The community is great, the game itself is incredibly challenging at first but a hell of a lot of fun once you start getting the hang of it, and the only thing really letting it down is a lack of new players.
The leagues are definitely very much a "Fun first" type feel and pretty much everyone is willing to talk to you about how to get better at the game.
If you like hockey, it's definitely worth a look
