I have you and Vulcan left to play, didn't hear back from him yet via PM, but I'll jump on at 11 to play you and then hopefully him.


Sounds good.

Just had an awesome game with Nate. Got some lucky bounces and barely held on for a 2-1 win!

Yeah, it was a good game.

I felt really sluggish early on, and that ended up putting me in an early hole when a centering pass hit off my d-man's skate, went right to a Chicago player for a wide open net since Rinne was covering where the pass would have gone. The Blackhawks grabbed a 2-0 lead on a cross crease to Patrick Kane that I thought my d-man could intercept...he just didn't make the play. I was outshot 12-8 through the first two periods though.

In the 3rd, I tried to pour it on, and scored one goal early. A furious effort from Nashville in the final minute saw numerous shots, and a wide open net off a rebound that Sergei Kostitsyn shot wide. I ended up outshooting Chicago 11-3 in the final period, but it was too little, too late. Hard to win games when those types of things go against you. I'm just glad I was able to make a game out of it, as I really thought the flood gates would open up after that second goal.

One thing I just want to ask in here, and it's kind of an online etiquette kind of thing. But if you're the away team, you should be using your white jersey. I don't like playing with two dark jerseys because with so much action going on, sometimes it's easy to look at the wrong guy or think the wrong thing. I mean, after all, the away jerseys are white for a reason. chriscolbert switched to his home jersey, so I ended up going white...which just felt a little lame since I was the home team. It's not a huge deal, obviously, and it's nothing to cause drama over. Just, like I said, an online etiquette thing.

EDIT - Chris explained why he did it, and I guess the Preds standard gold jersey looked light on his TV. Considering how some jerseys look different in the matchup screen than they do in the game, I'm inclined to just blame EA here, lol. I've always thought the gold jerseys were pretty dark though...darker than Lakers gold for sure. Anyway, weird situation, but at least it didn't affect the game.

He put the puck on net and it hit Marty in the pads, literally right where his ankle bends. Puck should have reflected outwards but it defied physics altogether and went in between his legs. Seriously not amused with that.

Hahaha, yeah, I had a scary moment with Shea Weber playing freaking CPU Dallas. Once again, some little wimpy ass forward just chucks Weber across the ice like he's nothing. Looking at the replay, I didn't even see contact. If anything, it looked like he swung his stick toward him and Weber just went flying. I wish I would have saved the replay, but I lost 1-0, and I just exited out and turned my system off I was so pissed.

Yeah, I've been saying that EA never meant it to be "real world physics", and that what they really meant was "real world psychics"...in the sense that his player must have just known exactly where to put the puck for Brodeur to just inexplicably not be able to handle it. EA isn't too good with those fancy college words.

My grandfather always used to complain about how teams now where the white on the road and the dark at home. Used to be the other way around. I'm with him, I prefer that.

Yeah, leagues seem to switch that around all the time. I think the dark jersey at home thing is because it's better for sales. Fans are going to want to buy the home jersey...and nobody wants to buy a white ass jersey, lol.

Funny thing is, I prefer the Rangers White jersey. Just seems classic to me. But I prefer the NY Giants blue jersey to their white one.

My dad and I still complain about it. I miss the white home jerseys.

As my buddy who use to work as the Tampa Bay Lightning Equipment Manager, they switched since it's easier for them when on the road to do laundry. I know, crappy ass reason but thats the NHL for ya.

Tampa's roster won't let the CPU play so we can roll with the SIM.

The one jersey I can't stand is the Minnesota Wild's. It looks like someone vomited Christmas. I prefer the look of the older jerseys to the new. Not sure how much I care about the home team white and away dark or the way it is now. I like the look of the ones from the 90's other than the jersey for the Kings. The one they have now I like better. I wonder why EA didn't add all the older jerseys into the game. I would have liked to use the one from the 90's for St. Louis.

I would have loved more jersey variety too, could really give a great historic feeling to some of the matchups.

How are the menu speeds in the new patch? Perfectly normal, or just slightly better?

I liked going to the League members screen and seeing how many others were suffering "Navigating Menus" while presumably having Zombie Nation stuck in their heads. Made me feel less like jumping out my window if I went into the wrong menu knowing someone else probably did the same thing.

I was on last night and it seemed to be working better. Navigating thru the standings/league statistics didn't take an hour like it usually does.

Yeah, I feel Carolina needs a new image in the jersey department. Tired of seeing the checker pattern sequence at the bottom of their jerseys. Maybe throw some glitter on it or maybe some rhinestones. Well that looks fabulous. Ohhhh sssstop it.

Good game against New Jersey last night except for my first goal. The physics looked pretty bad on that. EA needs to work their physics more instead making stupid videos on Hercules checks. Dude, did you see that check?! Yeah dude, Hercules check!! HIGH FIVE!

Not quite a Hercules check, but in the same category, this happened in one of my GM Connected games last night. It was right at the end of a period, so I don't know if that affected it. It really looks like speed lag when you play online, but I saw right away that none of the other players sped up. Andrei Kostitsyn just got rocket skates all of a sudden. I'm just glad he didn't get called for boarding, haha. You can hear my daughter in the background. I fully expected her to just burst out "WTF is this garbage???" lol. Oh, EA...

My game with Destro last night was crazy. The first period was scoreless and there wasn't a whistle until about a minute left, so we literally almost played the entire period non-stop. Holtby threw one into his own net to hand me a 1-0 lead in the second, and then everything after that is a blur... lol

I know he scored on a nice deflection on the PP and I had a shortie at some point, but Crawford gave up some weak goals, most notably twice he stopped the initial slap shot only to seemingly toss the rebound up in the air so it could fall over his back and into the net. I can take it happening once but after the way I got my first goal and I had no room for complaints.

When all was said and done he scored with 30 seconds left in OT to get the 6-5 win. Definitely the highest scoring game I've had so far.

Nope, no injuries on either side.

I got caught up playing Halo with some friends, so I didn't play my 3 games vs. Anaheim. Kinda hoping I'll get the achievement for winning with the build your AI file. Haven't checked on the results.

I think you have to play the game instead of having it simmed in order to receive the achievement.
