On xbox? Request me at tmoney2628 and we can play. I can use that game as a measuring stick to see how I stack up with a good player.

I've been playing the online team play the most. That is more fun to me and it's fun to use the mics there because it's easier to communicate with your teammates. I've been playing as the goalie a lot lately, I've gotten a ton better, been only giving up 2 or 3 goals a game which is fine if you end up on a good team cause they will score 5 or 6.

So there was apparently an update recently (yesterday, I think). Anyone know what the update did?

fixed the XP glitch and the problems with the rosters loading in be-a-gm where stars would get trapped in the minors because of cap-issues that the developers forgot to factor in with injuries and a lack of an IR system

Can someone tell me how to score a goal by just taking a slapshot? Seems like everyone I play online can score goals from anywhere just by winding up and taking a slapshot even when there's no screen.

I also have this slap-shot problem.

What ever I do I seem to never get a goal by slapping the puck.It always have to be deflect in order to get in.

I would really like to learn how to take a good slap-shot from the point on the PP.

Anyone with a tip please ?

quick slap shots, to the point of just above a snap shot, will hit the mark. if you wind up completely, you're prone to poke-checks. i usually do a quick windup and fire as fast as i can and aim to the top corners.

I find point slapshots are more effective the more you're moving towards the net, sliding backwards is a no go, standing still is unlikely, but even a slight move towards the net before winding up is a big increase in your chance of beating the goalie, I've found.

As said before, shoot low from the point for rebounds and shoot for the top corners to score, but those high shots are usually going to generate rebounds if they don't go in.

Also, there seem to be certain sweet spots to score from, which is true in real life too. The more towards the middle you are the better, and also top of the circle to the far side seems to work pretty well too.
