Sorry SMantzas! It listed you as a CPU so I just played the game... I wasn't trying to steal a victory :(

Haha it's all good man. It was my dumb fault for accidentally allowing the CPU to play for me

Yea.. I've lost track who is who... and figured whoever was the GM got booted...

I really wish there was a practice mode in GM Connected... it would be great to play with my GM team against the CPU for fun... and to learn my team rather than on the fly... (ie how best to fit Franzen into my roster)...

None of my opponents seem to be online...I have only played 1 of my 7 games so far.

I need to play THREE against Colorado, one against Detroit, one against Nashville, and one against St. Louis. I am online every night.

Maybe he didn't set his lines after the trade with me?
I still need Montreal and Detroit.


I'm also looking to trade Jimmy Howard for a physical d-man and a true backup goalie.

Well first off, congrats to kaz on getting his first win. Secondly, jwomp i know nashville can play tonight. The past two nights he hasnt been on but i know he will be playing his games tonight. And lastly, if anyone notices teams not playing. Like only 1 game, or sumthing let me know. Calgary, colorado, and ottawa seem to be in that category

I've been sitting online for an hour now trying to play some of these games...no luck! Colorado and Detroit aren't on. Nashville is on, but is playing another game. St. Louis is on, too, and told me he could play me after he finished up his current game. Well, his current game ended and he proceeded to start another one (not with me). Great.

This is so fun!

Just played STL...good game man, thanks for playing.

I won 3-0 but paid a heavy price. I lost Joe Pavelski to injury for 3 games, while Michael Handzus is out 45 games with a back injury. Rough.

3 games is alright, but 45? Ouch.

I feel your pain. So far I've lost Wolski for 7, Backstrom for 6, and Knuble for 43.

The most frustrating thing is that I have THREE games against Colorado this week and I've yet to play any of them! It looks like we just missed each other the last two nights...he was on about an hour before me. He stayed long enough to post a rude message about how I should be kicked out of the league...but didn't hang around long enough to see how I came online to play both nights haha.

Also...do wraparound goals bother anyone else? Personally I think they're a little cheap and I try not to do them, but I've found that's not the case with others.

colorado might have it set up so u can play his cpu. Not sure about that but i know he did last week. Maybe try that. As far as wraparounds, i dont think a normal wraparound is cheap, but i do hate the thing people do where they do from behind the net and basically circle around the front across the crease and just shoot. It works really often. Im actually finding it kinda difficult to be the devils gm cause im too attached to the players haha. I could probably make some trades, but i keep thinking "i cant trade him, hes a devi!"

Yeah, that's what I meant. A "real" wraparound" is fine, and hard to pull off. But those lame circle in front and tuck it in moves are lame.

Haha, OK, thanks for the update. I'll try to be on at 6 as well.

I'm still upset with him for rage quitting on me when I was up 4-2... and scored (5-2) with less than a minute to go.
He eventually played me again two days later... and I won 2-0... but still; I wasn't pleased giving him a 're-do' because he can't keep his emotions in check. Lose with dignity. At least it saved me from an injury (who knows how long Malhotra would have been out for)

JWomp is on all the time, he is on for short bursts... and complains JWomp isnt around? Seriously?

Personally, this has been the least enraging version of NHL so far... the goalie AI is getting better now that they have the ability to 'cheat' side to side... (on covering the net, not actual cheating). The goalie use to only focus on the possession player... making cheap passes to the open winger on a 2 on 1 was a goal each and every time.

Wrap arounds are always dirty goals... couple with behind the net chip shots. Both are fine as they aren't really exploiting goalie AI issues. You see them develop, and largely you can get players in there to break it up most times before it develops into a goal...

I don't think I'm cheating... but I do feel I get cheap goals... when I poke check an overly aggressive defender... and Kesler or one of the Sedins has a clean breakaway... they are so fast, that they get 2-3 strides ahead, you won't catch them. I go straight at the net, see if the opposing player is going to let the goalie AI run with it... or if they will take control. If it's the goalie AI, I'm going top shelf stick side... if its user controlled... Im breaking to one side, deke the opposite direction (or spin), and backhand it in... hopefully missing a sprawl or see them run the goalie the wrong way.

Please note... I'm a poke checking player... I avoid hitting largely... and most of my games are battling for puck possession into brekaways when one of us over commits.

Btw everyone im trying to make a couple moves before the schedule advances friday. I want either a mid 80s dman or a winger 82 or above. Preferably a fast player. Im willing to trade ANY of my picks including my first. If i were to trade my first it would have to be for a good player. Players im willing to trade are:
salvador
fayne
Moose
Sykora
gionta
Maybe zidlicky but it wud have to be for another dman
