One other thing that bothers me is the damn goalie equipment. Three years into Be a GM you'll see the wrong equipment in the wrong teams due to trades and stuff.

Hold on, so are you saying that when you make trades and what not, the goalies come out wearing the wrong color equipment? I've noticed that NHL 10 doesn't have the accurate masks, but the equipment is generally correct, at least when colors are concerned.

I don't know if there's a setting for it although I don't think so.

If, for example, Luongo was traded to, say, Colorado, he'll still come up with all his Vancouver equipment...pads, mask, glove, blocker, everything

I just won the cup in be a gm mode

Clarkson 3 goals in game 7 to win it

Marty with MVP award.

Can't wait to build up my devils haha too bad I get the number 30 draft pick

I'm in the playoffs now (6th season)....Kovie leading the charge. Came back from a 3-0 series deficit against.......Carolina (ugh), swept Florida, ECF against Boston

Only the biggest goalies have that issue, because in the "EDIT PLAYER" tab, they have "Keep equipment if moved/traded" box checked.

The other thing, referring to the person who said "too bad I've got the 30th pick"... before the season, I always liked to find a team that wasn't going to be wonderful.. just a middle-of-the pack team... and trade them my 1st and 3rd for their 1st and 4th. Because, if you plan on having a good year, you still get a good fraft pick out of it.

in my playoff mose Kovy had like 24 goals in 16 games. lol

I got you beat there, buddy :) I put Kovalchuk on lines 1 and 4, every PP unit, and every 4 on 4 unit... he finished th eyear with this statline:

82 GP 113 G 104 AST 217 PTS.

This was, of course, around the year 2017 or so. One of the cool things about the game is that it takes into account the probability that scoring will increase year by year ever so slightly... I'm in 2029 right now, and I see alot more 8-6 games than I do 1-0.

Sounds pretty much like what we can expect to see from him next season in NJ!!!

I'm now playing a fantasy draft Be a GM mode... pretty fun I ended up drafting almost all devils. The penguins have Ovechkin and the Blue jackets have Crosby hahah.

FOR NHL 11:

They should have Winter Classics

It would be cool in be a gm or be a pro or maybe in an online tourny to have the outdoor rink.

They should have the Devils green jerseys as third jerseys.

They should make you feel like your at the arena by showing real life pics of the outside of it in the intro to the game or something.

They should have more realistic arenas, like maybe have the recognizable walkway behind the boards at the garden, or even the zamboni doors where they really are. Maybe pan around the inside of the arena and have it LOOK like the rock, like the big devils sign next to 233 etc.

Idk I can't think of anything else right now but I would especially love to see the green devils jerseys

Anyone try be a pro with a goalie? I started one on the hardest difficulty setting, got drafted by Ottawa and played a number of games as the backup. I lost about 3 games 1-0 while making 20+ saves and they told me I had to keep the puck out of the net and start winning more games. I like playing as the goalie even if the controls still need a lot of work but god damn is it annoying to watch your team try to score, all they do is pass the puck back and forth. I got sent down to the b-sens after playing in 5 games and going 2-3 with a goals against average under 1 and a save percentage of like .950. Every game I win is 1-0 or 2-0 with an empty net. Completely fvcking stupid.

I switch off from my Be A Pro, Be A GM, and EASHL depending on what i feel like playing but i recently restarted my pro and im playing on the Devils top line with Kovy and Zajac. I got like 100+ points right now in 38 games haha. Also when I got the game in September when it first came out i started the GM mode first and the first move I made was trading for Kovalchuk. Little did I know he was ganna be on the Devils for real in 5 months haha. Its a great and addicting game. Cant wait for NHL 11

There's some fixes I'd rather see before these. I mentioned the deal with the masks and Patrick Kane being a free agent in my BAP for the six seasons I've played. Also, cut down on the big name trades....cut down on the trades period.

Something I'd like to see as well is a better trading interface for the user. Yes, you can see a player's trade value, but after adding 2 or 3 on each side, you lose track of values and don't know how balanced (or unbalanced) your proposal is, and since you rep also varies according to proposals, it would help.

Graphics apart, I liked NHL 99 (?) a lot. It had what I mentioned about the trades, it had the stadiums pics, while loading it showed who's hot and cold and that stuff, quite nice that game.

All this good talk got me do be a GM :boogie:

Basically did a fantasy draft and picked Zach in the first round. The draft went something like this for me..
1st round Parise
2nd round Lidstrom
3rd round Marleau

I also ended up get Dan Boyle, Mats Sundin, Tomas Holmstrom, and Brygalov(sp?).


At the draft I basically picked from what the assistant coach told me and was offered about 5 trades :giggle:

I pushed hard for a trade for Weber which included a 1st, Boyle, and Sundin but they wouldn't bite. But I later acquired Sutter and Eric Staal.

My wing depth sucks but my center depth is beastly. Marleau, Staal, Sundin, and Sutter.

anyone else wish you could put in your own goal horns as well as goal songs? today i made a custom goal horn and it sounds really cool and it has stick stickly by attack attack (If anyone has heard that song) as the goal song. sounds pretty sweet!

You can. Add it to the song that you want to be played, and go into the in-game settings and turn "Horns" (I believe, something like that in the sound settings" and turn it all the way down.

Love all of the new ideas. wish they changed up the cutscenes and stuff, those have been the same since 07, but the game definitely looks sick.

Toews is going to be the NHL 11 cover boy. Man you talk about a great year for a guy.... Olympic Gold Medal, Campbell Trophy, Conn Smythe Trophy, Stanley Cup, and now cover of the new EA sports game. Man talk about a solid year. This guy is literally on top of the world right now.

Cannot wait for this game.

My favorite feature in NHL 10 oddly enough was the realistic crowd reactions to goals. How they all jump up and cheer. That made the atmosphere amazing.

I can't wait for the physics. When you play 10 for as long as I did, you kinda get sick of the 5 hitting animations. But now with everyone being unique, who knows. I'm counting down the days till september.
