Thanks Man! I had a funny feeling that it could be switched. Shows that my research skills are lacking. Haha

Well, I've learned to not put any horrible idea past EA, lol. But I looked through that thread on OS, and for one, it's from early June...so pretty old info there. And it seemed like a pretty blatant assumption just based on that little blip in Game Informer about Connected GM "featuring a full 82 game schedule". It didn't say anything about that being the only way to play. And at least the Reddit thread is from late July, so like I said, hopefully that guy knows what he's talking about. :)

Hey guys, I want to thank N8 rocker for inviting me to the league. After playing a shenanigans game of NHL 12, I can't wait for NHL 13.

I was looking over my Sharks roster and seeing a few guys I would like to trade. I havent played a mode like this with friends, never mind you fellow CAGS. Whats the general guidelines for trades? And if the CPU takes over some teams are we allowed to trade with them or do those get reviewed?

I have no real preferences on any of this, just figured ask about it before it gets going so there is less confusion

It's really going to depend on how well EA incorporated things like the salary cap and player contracts into GM Connected. If everything is realistic and functional, we shouldn't need to limit trades in any way. Even with trading with the CPU...as long as the trade logic isn't terrible, that should be ok too. I'm a bit skeptical though because I don't know if ANY video game EVER has ever gotten trade logic right, lol. At worst, I guess we could review trades ourselves.
Do you have what it takes to compete?

Ya know...I hadn't really thought about it before, but watching that video, I'd bet that the Live Moments are going to be BAP style. Based on Madden, I never considered it because those always focused on just the team. But these really seem to focus on a specific player. Especially with the goalie shutouts, it would feel kind of dumb to be playing as the skaters in front of him.

I never thought about it as well until you just mentioned it. I can see myself putting some time into this mode just to buy some time.

I looked at it, but I didn't complete the purchase because I wasn't sure if the 12 months of access starts from your purchase date...not that I could think of any advantage I'd gain by waiting. I also couldn't think of anything I'd gain by doing it that day, lol. So yeah, I'll probably go through with it in the next day or so.

Does anyone know if the HUT cards from Season Ticket double up if you pre-order from Gamestop? So you would get packs from both, the Ticket and Gamestop

They should, yes. But I would ask at Gamestop to be sure.

No idea. Less people play PS3. So, you're going to either need to start a thread yourself, and find out if there's enough interest for one. Or go to a bigger forum (EA, OS, etc.) so you can find enough people who have your system.

The one thing I HATE about watching the developers play the game is that never do any moves that could potentially cause a glitch. When I turned it on, they were doing a shootout between Edmonton and Tampa Bay (which, Gary, you'll be happy to know that the Lightning had Lindback in net), and they're not even really deking at all. Just doing a little stick twirl and taking a wrist shot.

One time, the guy did a little stop and turn move (I'm guessing he held the left trigger...like the old skate backward to hide the puck from the goalie thing), and he was able to get the goalie to freeze when he turned back to take a shot. It was actually a pretty nice move...but yeah, if it works every time...then it becomes a problem.

I like that they got Tim Horton's as a sponsor this year though, haha.

EDIT - Wow! Just saw Bryzgalov save a great cross crease on a 2 on 0. He got over damn quick.

Geez these guys suck...lol. I've seen a lot of scoring chances that haven't been converted just because they didn't make the right move. Still seems like it's a little easy to get into the offensive zone, but hopefully those new "team systems" settings will help with that.

EDIT 2 - What I do really like is being able to skate backward at any moment now. It seems like that will be a great way to gain some separation and buy yourself some time when moving the puck around. I'm really hopeful that this year's game will be more about patience and hesitation than outright speed and deking. The game would be so much better that way. Just not sure EA has the balls to tell people they need to re-learn the game.

This is probably what I am hoping for the most as well. It seems like if you take your time you can cycle and get some great scoring chances in the offensive zone. Being able to skate backwards, protect the puck can keep the play going for a bit longer if you know what you are doing.

It's just a tough thing because you can't assume that everyone will want to play that way. EA has to basically force them to play right by making the defense good enough to stop cheap tactics. A lot of this is more in relation to OTP/EASHL, but teams shouldn't be rewarded for having their wingers abandon the defensive zone early and be hanging out at center ice waiting on a breakout pass. The defensemen either need to be smart enough to hold the puck in at all cost or know to drop out of the zone to cover the guy trying to get a cheap breakaway. The AI isn't really going to be tested until people start trying to look for holes.

Another thing I like though in regards to the skating is that it seems like more of a cat and mouse game. I'm hoping that due to the fact that it's going to be easier to get knocked off the puck and harder to shoot accurately at high speeds (allegedly) and the fact that it's going to be easier to overcommit on defense, that should create some slowdown and hesitation on both sides. I saw moments in the demo where a player would skate hard and then coast before making a turn. You never saw stuff like that in 12 because people were always just trying to go as fast as they could. I know even for me, any time I was pressing the left stick, I was also clicking it in. If done right, these small changes should have a big impact on how the game plays.

Wow, that's a crock of crap. I think a few of us have iOS, I just ordered a Android today so they better rethink that crap.
