Congratulations, Alan. ;-)

Still trying to actually play all my games, so Kings opponents, let me know when you're available today, if at all. I've sent PM's.

Chicago here.

I hope to be on more this weekend around 11:00 PM and later. I may have some time in the afternoons on Saturday and Sunday as well and will try to post here to give whoever needs to play me a head's up.

I think I really got too ambitious as I joined two leagues. For the record, I enjoy this league more because I've played with some of you guys in an MLB 2K league before and the settings of this league are MUCH more to my liking. The other league I'm in you seriously can't even pass to guys wide open 10 feet from you accurately. The gameplay consists of carrying the puck up the ice with the same player while the defense constantly tries to poke check it from you. It's actually quite comical but I'm thinking about quitting that league and focusing on this one a bit more.

"I'm not a racist or anything, buuttt......" Insert most racist comment you'll hear all week.

"I don't think I've ever seen someone dislike something so much, yet still decide to invest so much time into it." Insert Nates name since he has put this league together.

Different but the same.

Yeah man!

I've gotten a few games in so far. I beat CPU Toronto but have lost the others against "legit" competition.

Well, you'll probably end up doing better than me. I have one of the best teams in the game and am still well below .500. You and I should be playing soon, actually, with the Kings and Blackhawks scheduled to meet on November 21 and 27.

Again, pretty sure none of the penalties even applied to our game. When I chased you down I hit you from the side. As for the whole "not taking risks". How the hell can you say that? YOU DON'T PLAY DEFENSE!!!! Your defense consisted of a slight forecheck that was easily picked a part, hoping to get into position to try to block a shot, or hoping that Rinne is an all-star every time down the ice. I don't know, maybe your used to having other people to rely on from playing EASHL games, but I pretty much only play HUT, so I know what to expect, because if there's one thing you learn playing the CPU or teams that are filled with all-stars, it's how to play D.

As for saying that I'd rather play with an "anything to win" mentality I don't know when I admitted that. I think you must have some tears obstructing your eyes. Like I said, I've toned it down since the first week, but I still don't intend to lay down for anyone. I'm competitive and play to have fun. Whether I'm winning or losing I'm having fun. When I'm not having fun, I'll switch games. I think a majority of the people I played would say that I have played a pretty fair game. A few people could be upset, and I could easily name which ones they are since I realized afterwards that I probably was going a little too hard. For instance Destro had every right to be pissed about our game, I was going pretty hard, and had all the luck in the world in that game, and I did have a bad hit on Johnson when I played Moojuice for that should have been a boarding and later had one put on me.

As for my XBL profile... Maybe you should take what it says to heart. Man the Fuck up and stop whining like a little bitch.

But Gary...you don't understand. People are checking "from the side". It's totally ok if it's "from the side"!!! Don't you know? Hitting = Defense! Penalties are called great in this game. There haven't been universal complaints about the lack of penalties. You're imagining things. Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!

Keep telling yourself that getting knocked off the puck by the guy skating next to you is a penalty.

I guess I didn't realize playing you during your cycle would push you to the ledge. I'm more than willing to give you that extra push though if it means an end to your sob stories of injustice and inequality.

Skating next to you = hustling across the ice and leveling the player. Ok, guy. :) No need to act all e-tough. You have more opponents than just me. We'll see if it comes up again. When you're at the point that you're defending a game that has been broadly panned for the aspect of it that works in your favor, you tell me what's going on.

It cracks me up that the top two teams in this league are also terrible EASHL players. You guys can't grasp the concepts of controlling one player, knowing your defensive assignments, and working as a team, but you're somehow out of this world ice wizards controlling an entire team. Explain that one to me.

But I thought you said I was hitting you from behind after chasing you up ice...

You go all out on hits...many of which involve chasing a guy down from behind and just destroying him. Now, in our game, more of these were in open ice than along the boards, but still...you'd think a penalty would be called at some point.


... Oh wait, you did. Also how many of those so called cross ice checks were when there was a loose puck and we got there at nearly the same time. Again legal hit made all the time in the NHL.

No need to act all e-tough. You have more opponents than just me. We'll see if it comes up again. When you're at the point that you're defending a game that has been broadly panned for the aspect of it that works in your favor, you tell me what's going on.

Explain that one to me.


As for defending the game, hardly. I'm defending the fact that the better player/team won. You got outplayed, but of course credit can't go where credit is due... I had an advantage because of my style. Not to mention last time I checked all 360 controllers have the same buttons. So are you suddenly unable to adapt to the game? Do you not have all your fingers? Are you playing with your toes? What is it? There must be something right? No... I'm just better.

As for the EASHL comment... Now I can't say anything about WPark, because I have never played with him, or against him... So I have no knowledge of him. He seems to be a pretty good player from everything I have read through the posts of people that have played him.

What I do find funny is that you say we are "terrible EASHL players. You guys can't grasp the concepts of controlling one player, knowing your defensive assignments, and working as a team." Interesting considering I have never even played with you in EASHL and haven't even played an EASHL game since NHL 08 or 09 whenever it was introduced. Even then, I only played a couple games with my roommate from college when his team needed another player. But somehow I suck at something I never played, go figure. Must be that awesome n8 logic. I don't play EASHL because I don't like having to rely on other people being competent. Much in the same way that I don't play FPS without a few friends because I'd rather not carry a bunch of people only to lose because Johnny Jackass on the team can't seem to get a kill while getting killed 20+ times. Then again you knew that since you know so much about me.

Keep telling yourself all these lies.... Whatever helps you sleep at night I guess.

This right here says all that I need to know. I'll put it on cpu when I have to play against you.

Edit -Apparently it's to hard to change the goal tenders mask when they get traded. Yup, good job EA. You do it in HUT no problem, but not gm connected.

Haha... Especially since that's a feature that's been in HUT for awhile. I remember a couple years ago I had Anderson and he was wearing the Avs and then with the roster update it gave him the Sens.

I kind of wonder if doing a team change in this year's game changes his mask. (Unless that's what you were referring to?)

I still don't understand how one has anything to do with the other. I made a statement, and prefaced that statement by saying I wasn't taking a deliberate shot at Nate, because out of context, it could have been misconstrued. This is extremely different than someone saying:

"Hey, I'm not racist or anything, buuuttttt... I hate black people"

While I can brush off cheap shots, I do need to correct any misinformation I read. Because I can do all of those things. You just wouldn't know because what started as an open CAG team became this exclusive group that not everyone could take part in. That's why some of us branched of this year and just made our own club. Let me know when you want my club to play yours. Hopefully you don't bitch too much when I beat you again though.

I also don't know why you threw me into this, I never stated myself to be an "ice wizard".
