Also, Minnesota (I know you're just getting back from vacation...or will be tomorrow) and Edmonton (still having internet issues?), I'm probably not going to have much time to play tomorrow, so sorry but since you both have yours set to CPU, I'm just going to play them now..


No problem, I didn't expect anyone to wait on me. I just got home so I should be good to go for the next period here. Hopefully my team is somewhat healthy still :)

I can assure you I did not injure anybody. Though one of your CPU players had a boarding penalty that scared the shit out of me, lol. And another one of your guys chucked David Legwand across the ice like a ragdoll. But he got up, brushed himself off, and then scored, so that was cool, haha. ;)

We had a discussion before about trades that are largely based around draft picks and that they're frowned upon. We're all trying to aim for multiple seasons here, but until we prove that we can do it, taking an all star player for a few draft picks and a scrub is basically pillaging the CPU's roster with potentially no consequence. If others disagree, feel free to speak up...but I know the last time it came up, it wasn't a popular move.

And yeah, that wasn't the right player. It's D, Magnus Nygren, a 22 year old with a 58 OVR and 3 star potential. I'm not the only deciding voice here, but yeah...don't think this one is gonna pass, lol.

EDIT - Actually, wait...no, it does show up twice....one with each player. That's freaking weird. I'll still wait to hear more thoughts, but this will likely have to be decided before we advance, since we found out the game tends to auto approve trades if you leave them idle when you advance.


I wanted to do the Blunden one, but was messing around and had done it with Nygren first when trying to mess with some of my prospects who I didn't see me using in the future due to their counterparts at the same positions being fairly young and having a decent amount of time left on their contracts.

I know what you are saying about the picks... My main reason for the trade is that my D doesn't have too much depth and even less with 2 of my top 4 out still. The picks were one of the strongest things that met their block requests, so that was my best option to make the trade work. The negative is that I'm eating a fat contract with Bouwmeester that is going to definitely limit my spending in the off-season.

I always saw deadline as midnight of that day. Or in other words, the day I would start an assignment for a college class with a deadline of 10/14 knowing I had until 11:59 to get it in (did that way more than I should have).

Part of the problem with the whole advancing thing is the character limit in post titles.

As far as the trade, the only thing I would say is that though there are two draft picks, they are likley going to be one of the last picks of each round at this point, judging by MTL's record. I wouldn't say this makes it outrageously unfair, but the Draft picks aren't as good as they might seem. Also, didnt Calgary deal Iginla for draft picks this year too (on my phone, hard to use search feature)? One mustt think the Calgary A. I is in a rebuild mode. My thoughts about this is if a human picks up the team and we don't go far enough into it, they are going to have a gimped team. On the other hand, we are already a quarter of they way thru knew season, so maybe it won't be a big issue.

More just playing devils advocate here, as having a bad team in my division only helps me lol :p

As the GM of the Edmonton Oilers I approve this deal (I have lost to Calgary twice... but i'm horrible so any advantage is welcomed)

As for your last question, that's a touchy issue. In MY opinion, if he missed an agreed upon time, it should be his burden to bear to work around your schedule. I don't think it would be fair at all for him to play the CPU...or even for the game to be simmed when it's not your fault that it didn't get played. In that case, if he really can't get on when you can play, I think you should play the CPU.



Yeah, he might be around today so I think we're gonna try again, its just frustrating when there isnt any communication. We were supposed to play Thursday night and I didnt get any PMs from him till Saturday.

Chicago here.

I still have San Jose, New Jersey, and Buffalo to go. I have been in touch with Buffalo and may be able to get a game in late tonight, but I'm going to be out watching the Packers/Texans game so it won't be until about 20-30 minutes after that before I will be on. I have set myself to CPU for whoever may not be up that late.

I was out watching a miserable ECHL game yesterday, but I have until 8 P.M. Eastern today to play. I'm Los Angeles. My remaining schedule is as follows:

Columbus (CPU, I believe)
Florida
Minnesota
Dallas

I'll send out PM's as a reminder. Wanna play all 4 if possible.

Just played CPU Detroit, lost 4-2 despite outshooting them 26-18. Detroit had 2 lucky goals (1 dribbler from the blue line that was actually reviewed, and 1 where Thomas decided to watch the defender in front of the net instead of the puck, leaving half the net wide open). Fuck you EA!

Ninjas, my bad. I've been looking for you and tried to send you a friend request on XBL but your list is full.



Got invited with a couple chicks to go to a strip club last night. Had to put NHL13 up for the night, 'nomsayin?!


Haha. I'm on right now though.


Played the flyers last night. I'm still notsureifsrs about that Josefson penalty. Philadelphia was banging into me all game, and the minute my guy gets involved after a whistle, I get called for roughing.

I know what you mean just played the CPU Stars and lost 4-2. Was down 3-0 after one after out shooting them 12-3. Yep they scored on all three on their shots in the first. I ended the game hitting at least 7 posts and missed one wide open net as the Stars goalie laid on the ice on the other side of the net.

I've already said that the best way to get in touch with me is to hit me with a PM here on the forum because I get the email on my phone. I usually respond to those messages in 1-2 days max. Checking my inbox, I have zero such forum messages from you. I also can't add you on xbox live to ever check to see if you're around because your friends list is full.

I don't keep my xbox on all day, so your messages only get to me if I hop on xbox live. Again, YOU have a full friends list... so no, I'm not going to track down your xbox live profile every time I'm on to see if you're around.

This should be how all league members are communicating. XBL messages are ok, but yeah, not everybody gets on their Xbox everyday. If Microsoft was ever able to implement email/mobile notifications, I'd be fine with it. But right now, CAG does a better job of that.

I usually respond to those messages in 1-2 days max.


Well, with a 5 day advancement schedule, you should be trying to check more often than every 2 days. Maybe there's room for improvement on all sides here.

I apologize for sounding like a douche. You could have messaged me to tell me my friends list is full. I could have fixed that.

Looks like I have a storm moving in. I think I was to play someone tonight at 5 CST, but with this storm I'm not sure. For anyone that needs to play St. Louis it it is after 9 CST you can play the CPU. I'm not sure when I will be on with the storm moving in. I don't like to run my 360 if their is a storm.

I've Sent both XBL messages (which he said he prefers) and a pm on here to the Sharks. It's frustrating knowing if he doesn't contact me soon that it has to be simmed, every one of my injuries have occurred during simmed games except Briere so I'd rather be in control.

I Know real life happens, but that's why everyone should set their game up to enable CPU play. You don't have to do it for evey game, just do it once and never turn it off. We all know not to play a player who has selected CPU until the last day.

I do think we need to just go ahead and create a policy for this. It's going to become an even bigger issue as the league goes on. I thnk the basic policy should be this:

Everyone is REQUIRED to enable CPU play

Everyone must PM their opponent before even considering playing the CPU

No games vs the CPU should be played before the day of the deadline unless given permission by the owner (games against unowned teams can be played at any time)

If a player is reported as having played the CPU for an owned team before the day of the deadline, you get one warning. After that, you're suspended for 3 games (meaning, 3 opponents get to play your CPU). I'm hoping a 1:3 ratio would be enough to encourage people to pay attention and double check before just launching into a game against the CPU.

If anyone else has anything to add to this or something they think should be changed, feel free to speak up.

What about something where if you are reported you get 1 warning, then if it happens again you have to forfeit a game? I ask this only because we all know that playing the CPU is anything but an automatic win.

That's a reasonable request, but where's the forfeit button? If you're suggesting that the person just start up a game with you and allow you to score goals, that would never work. You're not going to get people to show up for their punishment.

I realize playing the CPU isn't a perfect solution, but that's why I came up with the 3 game suspension. If it was just 1:1, people probably wouldn't really care. You have to remember, the objective here is to prevent it from happening at all.
