No, don't feel bad at all guys. Last night was just the final NHL 10 hockey night, and I know people are getting reacquainted with the game, and it's not like our record matters anyway. So, just playing and having a good time was great. I just really think we can make a run for at least one of the Amateur division banners if we try to take things seriously in NHL 11.
I know Alan and myself put in a lot of time in NHL 10 learning how to defend cheap tactics that other teams use, and for the most part, we did learn how to stop them (my favorite moments were when we made glitching teams quit...there's really not a more satisfying feeling playing the game than that). So, with 11, if more people take things seriously and learn how to shut teams down, I guarantee we win at least 60% of our games.
I see a lot of skill in pretty much every person that plays with the CAG team, and there's really nobody who flat out "sucks". It's just a matter of keeping your skills sharp and being able to adjust to how the other team is playing. I'm excited about the new game. It will put everybody back to square one and give everyone a chance to start fresh...but with 2 years of OTP experience under their belts. We can make some good things happen.
