BACK 2 BACK!


March 2011, April 2011 Amateur Playoff Champions!



2009-2010 CAG Hockey Team


That's right, folks! It's that time again! Welcome to the official thread for your CheapyD All Stars!

Club History
This will be the team's 3rd season of play, starting with a rollercoaster season in 2008-2009, a rocky start to the 2009-2010 season, but a very strong finish down the stretch that saw the team learn to work together and even eclipse the .500 mark. Looking to continue their progression toward greatness, the 2010-2011 CAG team is sure to be a powerhouse, hopefully having raised some banners by the time the season's over!

How We Play
This is a team for people who wish to compete at a high level and learn the correct way to play their position and hockey in general. Your play will be critiqued, and your contributions to the team will be evaluated. This is not to deride anyone for the way they play, but to improve the team and to give us a better chance of winning games and possibly winning a banner someday.

If you become a detriment to the team, there is a possiblity you could be cut. Not saying this to scare anybody off...but we're looking for smart, skilled, and committed players. If this sounds like something you want to be a part of, please see the information on the CheapyD All Stars below.

When We Play
We have two official Hockey Nights each week. These fall on Tuesday and Friday, and usually start around 8 PM EST and end in the wee hours of the morning. These hockey nights can be filled with ranked games against other EASHL clubs, team practices to improve on basic skills and fundamentals, or even intrasquad games to compete against each other. There are also other random times throughout the week that we play, but Tuesday and Friday are the definite times you can find the team. If you'd like to play, please feel free to join us! If you'd like your information posted on the team roster, please see the "How to Sign Up" section below. See you on the ice!


CheapyD All Stars
***IMPORTANT***
One thing that we strongly recommend is that you do not use the "Be a Pro" or "Action" camera types. While these angles can be exciting for single player modes, they do a poor job of showing you the ice and which teammates may be open (especially players behind you). Since we strive to play strong team hockey and get everyone involved, it makes sense to be able to see the entire zone as you play. The CAG team advises that you use the "Ice", "Classic", or even "Overhead" cameras.

How To Sign Up
Keep in mind, we have official weekly Hockey Nights on Tuesdays and Fridays from 8PM EST - UNTIL (usually 12-1AM EST), and do play other random times as well. The more time you put into the team, the better we'll be and the more you'll get out of it.

If you're interested in taking part in these fun and awesome community gatherings, just find the team in the game (search "CAG" or "CheapyD All Stars"), and send a join request. And be sure to post in the thread and include the following information:

Getting The Most Out of Your Player
The following guide will show you how to best distribute your points and which boosts you should apply based on the cost of raising each attribute. Setting your player up wisely will give you an edge over the competition!

http://www.operation...81&postcount=10


Custom Soundpack
As you may or may not know, NHL 11 allows people to set their own custom playlists for in game events (team intros, goals, penalties, etc.). The great thing about this is you can stream the music from your computer and have the playlists pre-set. All you have to do is assign them to the specific events in game. You can find the pack here, along with full instructions on how to install it.

On the positions: Center was my main position before, but I switched to D later on in the season. Been trying some wing when playing NHL 10 with you guys. You all know this. I'm willing to try anything (that's what she said).

So, you got off the fence, Alan? haha. It would have been weird had you not gotten NHL this year though. I'm really pumped for the new game. Even if it's not perfect, as long as nothing is fundamentally broken, it should be a lot of fun.

Also, I don't know if this has been posted, but a new developer blog was put up on 8/27 that outlines the new features of the EASHL. I figured I'd just post it in here since it directly relates to the CAG team.

http://www.easports....ents-for-nhl-11
Spoiler


Some of the highlights
*The Elite, Pro, and Amateur divisions are something you place into...and not something you choose. So, we should be competing with similarly skilled teams basically all the time. Each division also has its own trophies and awards
*Apparently there will be team specific arenas this year. That's not confirmed, but it mentions other teams knowing when they're in "your rink"
*Team Practice mode does allow you to take 6 players (or less) and practice against the AI. This is huge for me because it encourages improving as a team, and not just exploiting each other's weaknesses
*Jersey customization appears to be WAY more in depth than any of us gave it credit for. I'm sure it's still not at the "upload your logo" level...but there are a lot of options

I can't wait for this game!

Yeah, I remembered I had a $30gc for gamestop, figured I might as well. Hell, the Avs have to be rated at least a little better this year.

As for team specific areas letting others know who's ice is who's, I'd imagine it's probably just crowd noise.

And I figure this might be beneficial since it's hard to explain this and play at the same time:

Any interest in a small single player per team league maybe aim for 10-12 players and each team would play each other 2-3 times?

Those videos are great, Alan! Although, I would have enjoyed them more if you made them yourself, haha. Like "Coach Alan's Corner", with your little hockey rink marker board. That would be epic! Definitely stuff people should make note of. I don't have a lot of technical hockey knowledge, and most of my defensive strategies are rooted in basketball (though zones work essentially the same way), but these types of things will definitely give me a better understanding of where I need to be on any given play. That kind of stuff has me really looking forward to team practice mode.

I'd be all for that. The sooner, the better, though... I will have less time to play once the regular season starts. Not that I won't still be playing then, but I'll be going to all the Ontario Reign home games starting October 23rd, and I've been averaging about 7 Kings home games each of the past 2 seasons.

I've got to PM CravinTacoBell, Captain_Obviou5, KasterDB, and mr_hockey. We need those guys back (amongst others).

Those were basically all the relevent videos that had anything to do with the CAG team. I found it amusing that 3 separate people have your shot off Alan's ass uploaded though, haha.

haha, see :) In my head, I'm convinced that you exchange sexual favors to get tickets to all these events. I mean, how else could one person do so much? lol

I didn't expect the picture, but I figured you'd say something, LOL. I'm actually home a lot of nights. I explained my increased social activity over the past couple months in the MLB league thread.

I've actually been treated for social anxiety and used to take medication for it... it's just that I'm comfortable around certain people/groups of friends- acting as I do with you guys. I'm much more quiet around a majority of people, and at hockey games and wrestling shows, I'm just an anonymous face in a crowd of 6,000-ish (Reign), 18,118 (Kings), or between 20,000-72,000 for wrestling shows.

I'm able to do this stuff because I don't have many expenses, I live 60 miles from LA where all kinds of events take place, and I have some connections with the right people. As far as the Reign games go, a friend of mine has been a season ticket holder since the team formed (2008) and he purchased 2 seats. I go for free to those games. I could not even afford my own season tickets at the moment, if I had to pay for them.

EDIT: Turns out the draft is at 8 P.M. Pacific. I thought it was set for 8 P.M. Central- Devin's time zone. I guess that means I won't be able to get on NHL right after the Packers game after all.

I know, homie. You don't have to explain yourself to me. I'm just razzin ya ;) (see Magic, you're not the only one who gets it, hahaha). I'm kinda the opposite (or maybe the same, depending on how you look at it). I think most people are fucktards and can't stand being around them, which is why I don't go out. Even friends I've had for awhile tend to be flakey and have their own lives to live, so with Xbox Live, it's nice to be able to be "social" from the comforts of my own home. At the end of the day, whatever makes your dick hard! lol

I'm the same way. I have a small group of friends that I hang out with regularly here in California. Most of my good friends are in Illinois. Too many people- friends or otherwise- have screwed me over or let me down, so that coupled with the anxiety means I stay home a lot (and my other medical problems exacerbated that).

I'm totally bipolar about social activity. Sometimes, I won't be home for several days. Other times, I won't leave my property (I do go outside, at least!) for days at a time.

As for what makes my dick hard- the lesbo stuff between Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning in The Runaways. ;)

I'll be there the first Tuesday and have to miss the next Friday. I am getting married in 4 weeks, it will be a bit bumpy until Oct. 22nd.

very excited to play hockey

You just tell her that Friday Night is hockey night, and if she doesn't like that well, you can get penalties that last for five minutes for fighting. I think you get my drift.

I can't find my old pic of the Miss USA and Penalty Box with Tissues picture dang it.

And we can only hope that Michael Richards doesn't decide to show up again. Not sure if you realize this, but a lot of people were seriously offended by that outburst. It's one thing to talk shit or call somebody a jackass, but that kinda crossed a line. Just something to think about.
