NHL 08 (xbox 360) League

Recommended Posts

I feel your pain.. this game has super-goalies.. its really annoying outshooting your opponent like 40-15 and only getting a goal.. im now considering having the difficulty set to Rookie so maybe the games are low scoring as much

Good tough game, you may have outshot me, (please don't go over the top with ridiculous numbers like 40-15), but scoring chances were somewhat even. I had a couple nice setups, so did you, i had a couple nice breaks, so did you... overall evenly matched game and a fun game. Please don't suck the life out of it like that... and I like having it on Pro so the games will be low scoring... cuz if you have it on rookie, it's going to look more like a Lacrosse score, which makes the game boring.

I HATE SHOOTOUTS lol.. notice how i was so aggressive on the PK on that 4 on 3? now u know why =/.. like i said the goalies are just too good, even Luongo denied you alot.. i just dont get it.. I wish the goalies skill level was the same as 07, they are just too good

edit: oh come on i didnt see the final shot total relax i just took a guess, it wasnt too bad :rolleyes:.. just pointing out how the goalies are ridiculous in this game.. especially ones like Mason; hes just above par in reality.. if Brodeur put on that kinda show it would make sense.

edit 2: and again i dont see how im criticizing your play.. i guess i under-estimated ur shots but u beat me and put up a good fight so obviously u were a good opponent.. ..?

Would you have complained if Foresburg never tied it in the shootout and you won? :rolleyes:

It was a good game.. man i hated that powerplay at the end, i couldn't get anything going.. and it was even tougher with your agression

Yes i still would, its been hindering with me for awhile about the goalies (taking note of all these 2-1, 1-0 decisions).. :rolleyes:

Guess it just took a loss out of me to get frustrated with it, and it seems like SteveStevens ran into a similar problem

But if you don't like 2-1 and 3-2 and 1-0 decisions find a different sport dude... this is still hockey, no matter how much Bettman's fvcked it over.

Thats not the point, at all.. ITS A VIDEO GAME.. i still love the real hockey and no video game will ever come SOOO close to being almost real.. but im trying to say how the goalies are so unrealistic; they stop everything.. I wouldnt mind if thats Brodeur or Lundqvist or a Luongo even making the saves but a Mason? A Holmqvist? Er..? It just seems like they made all goalies the same (Despite the ratings)

edit: I think "find a different video game" suits better (ill be getting 2k8 soon anyway i wonder if thats any better).. im a bit ticked u actually should insult that i dont like hockey and low scoring decisions.. b/c i made my point clear it was the goalies in the video game that bothered me about the scoring in the video game.. nothing at all about real NHL games

I'm just sayin' if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Nothings wrong with where its at right now, the 2-1 games are the most intense and fun to play in IMO... your league though, so do whatever you want.

Sorry...

Ok, I'm out to the Devils game! LETS GO DEVILS!!!!! :koolaid::koolaid::koolaid:

Random Notes

* Frost your the only one who has yet to complete at least 1 game for Week 2. Please try to get on to face your opponents or I have to give them a win if you dont complete them by Sunday evening.

* Jester is now in first place (1 point ahead of me)

* Chris is 3 points out of a playoff spot, 1 point head of the last place frost (Ill post complete standings once all games for this week are completed, as usual)

I have contacted Frost, and he gave me some times he was available this week. I need to find one that works for me, and play our game. I am sure he intends to play at least ours, so I would not worry about that. We will get it done...
