If anyone needs a defenseman or a winger, I'm open to trades. I could use a good center. I'll also deal draft picks.

It would be ok if this game hadn't been programmed by a bunch of mongoloids. I feel like a broken record always comparing NHL to Madden, but again..."unlike in Madden", I can't switch people to "auto pilot".

The decision to allow the CPU to play for you has to be made on a game by game basis by each individual team owner. Yeah, so...if your opponent wouldn't mind letting you play the CPU, he has to load up NHL and choose to allow the CPU to play that game... At that point, he might as well just play it himself.

The only way I could do it is to boot the person from the league and have them rejoin later. And sorry...but that's just too much work to juggle for 24 teams over an 82 game season. If it could be done from the website...or the app (if the app was made for Android, since I don't have iOS), I'd be ok with it. But having to load up the game that many times and go through those menu screens would make me want to throw myself infront of a bus.

It really blows my mind how poorly this mode was put together, and that the Madden team was able to come up with better ideas and have more common sense. What's even more crazy is that Madden's Connected Careers are far from perfect and have numerous goofs of their own. But NHL's are just still much much worse. The NHL team should really be embarrassed.
Do you have what it takes to compete?

Just had a game with Flyersfan that was the opposite of my game with Nate. This time Fleury was the one who stood on his head and Bryzgalov jumped out of the way on a penalty shot. Penguins win 3-0, in a game with some pretty bad lag.

Sorry about Briere, that is one of the things I don't get. I have gotten a lot bigger hits where the guy skates away and then that one hurts him for 50 games.

I understand that. However, I've sent multiple PM's to this user over the last few days, other users have had trouble reaching him as well (Matt Young has commented on that in this thread), and it just seems a little silly that the game would have to be completely simmed when one user is willing, able, and trying to communicate time for setting up a match and could just play the CPU instead. I'm not trying to rag on Ninjas here since I know things come up, but he hasnt communicated anything here. Just my $.02.


You can't play the CPU unless the other team enables it though. So there's not much that can actually be done from Nate's perspective. I'm not sure you can actually play the CPU unless the other team has enabled it.

I already set the Rangers up so that the Sabres could play the CPU tonight. Same goes for the Devils I suppose, since tonight is the deadline.

It could be due to being up for about 16 hours, but am I reading correctly that if one player has it simulated it is then simulated for both players? I thought one team would just be the CPU and the other be the player.

No. When you go to select a game, there is a second option that enables the CPU to play for you. That's why you set up your AI file or whatever it's called.

Oh okay, guess I didn't understand how that worked. I know you can set up your own AI but I thought that if the other user didnt enable it you would just play the standard CPU. My mistake.

I didn't see an option to play the AI, so my understanding of things is that it has to be enabled. That's what I had to do for tonight. I'd imagine playing an unowned team would be different of course.

Yeah you are correct I just looked at it myself. Guess I'll just wait and see if he gets back to me tonight otherwise I'll enable sim before I go to bed.

Flyersfan I'm on now, just sent you an XBL request too.

Yup, this is correct. As I said, the Madden team did a far better job handling this, as the commissioner has the power to set any team to "auto pilot" whenever they want...which makes this issues moot. I agree that Ninjas needs to be more active. But this is also the first week of a brand new game mode. Lets ease off the throttle a bit.

In all honesty, one could raise the argument that one person playing all 82 of their games just because they have the free time is "unfair". In that regard, people who have jobs, wives, kids, etc. are being punished for not being able to sit at their Xbox all day and play 10 games of NHL vs the CPU. But this is the shithole of a system that EA gave us to sort out this year. None of the decisions are easy...and we can only do the best we can.

I hate to do this a week into the season but I think I am going to have to leave the league. I am not going to be able to put the time into it as I thought I was going to earlier when I joined. On top of that, I cannot connect to a game. It took moojuice and I nearly 30 minutes to figure it out and I do not want to slow things down by having this happen on a consistent basis. Same thing happened to me last year in the Madden league. The internet here at my school is a hit or miss, and well it has failed again.

I will leave the league when I get back home tonight or if someone wants to do it before I get to it, so be it. Sorry again gents. Hopefully 1 day Ill be able to participate in a league on CAG.

lol yeah, Seguin got pretty lucky both goals. Only issue this game was some lag, which messed me up on the shootout and ended up in me wasting Bergeron...but otherwise a great game!

Shootouts are insane this year. I had to pull a quadruple deke just to have Nugent-Hopkins beat some Minor League goalie in HUT.

Just had a game with DestroVega. Solid game. Kinda bummed that Marty Brodeur got beat once or twice on the high glove side and put me in a 3-0 hole in the first period, especially considering one of them was an unscreened shot from the high slot. Picked up a goal in each period after that, and had a few craaaaazy second-and-third chance plays.

2-3 Caps. Fun stuff!

The goalies are just totally random like that. You just have to tell yourself that you'll get it back in a different game. I know I already have, as after barely cracking a 70% save percentage in my first 2 games, Rinne has reeled off 3 straight shut outs. It's really just luck of the draw.
