NHL 11 Line Suggestions
 
Hey guys! I'm not active with posting on here, but I'm always reading.

Currently I'm the Team Captain for the Philadelphia Flyers for EA Sports' NHL 11

This means I try to keep the Lines updated, and make suggestions for ratings changes.

I'm asking for your help. If you have any suggestions post em.
If you guys can I might need help with keeping the PP and PK lines updated because of the constant changes, and sadly I can't watch every game, because i play hockey.

The post will be on EA's forms, i will update this when i post the lines, I'll also try to keep them updated on here!

This is for PS3 and XBOX 360. This will help keep our beloved Flyers rosters updated!

Thanks guys,
MattMicko

Lately:

JVR-Richards-Nodl
Zherdev-Carter-Giroux
Leino-Briere-Hartnell
Powe-Betts-Shelley/Carcillo


Pronger-Carle
Timonen-Coburn
Mezaros-O'Donnel
Bartulis

Bobrovsky
Boucher

I think Leino, Bobrovsky and Boucher should have their ratings boosted a little. and Timonen, dude is way better than 83 or whatever he is listed as.

Timonen should be ~85
Leino- 80-81
Bobrovsky 81-82
Boucher-80

PK: Forwards are true, but D pairings I am not sure about. I think they vary a lot.
Richards-Giroux
Pronger-Timonen

Betts-Powe
Coburn-Mezaros/O'Donnel

PP (Just a guess really, they vary also) Based on Dallas game:
Leino-Richards-Carter
Pronger-Timonen

Hartnell-Briere-Giroux
Carle-Mezaros

lol inb4 every team on nhl 11 is overrated due to asking for help on the respective teams forum.

Snipsnap12 02-10-2011 11:01 PM

Hey I play quite a bit of nhl 11.... im ranked in the top 60 on xbox 360 anyway I dont really follow the lines from real life but these are what work for me best

carter-richards-giroux
leino-briere-hartnell
nodle-JVR-Zherdev
powe-betts-carcillo


Pronger-Mezaros
timonen-coburn
OD-carle

Powerplay

zherdev-richards-giroux

carter-briere-hartnell

Penalty kill

richards-giroux
zherdev-hartnell



I know its laughable to even think of having zherdev on the PK but his speed kills in that game and I would say he is in the top 3 for goals scored for me with 3rd line ice time.

Spongolium* 02-11-2011 05:37 AM

I also put him on the PK. Z is a freak on the game. But he falls down so often which drives me nuts.

Carter is another freak.

Jray42 02-11-2011 03:36 PM

Dont know what you guys did to Bob ratings wise, but I either get a shutout or he blows up and gives in 7 goals on 9 shots, 0 breakaways.

From the last time Ive played ( 2weeks ago ish)
changes:

Betts is the C on the PP.

Giroux plays the PP

Meszaros over Carle on PK, Mesz over Coburn on PP

Kimmo needs a boost
Leino > 78, Carbomb is higher :facepalm:

Hartnell - Briere - Leino
Carter - Richards - Nodl
JVR - Giroux - Zherdev
Powe - Betts - Carcillo/Shelley

Carle - Pronger
Timmonen - Coburn
OD - Mesz


you guys are right tho, zherdev is a moster in this game. NHL11: Speed + deking ability = wins.

Snipsnap12 02-11-2011 07:11 PM

roster update today.... they finally gave the flyers a boost

giroux went to an 85
Lenio 82
Bobrovsky 81

PhillyFlying 02-12-2011 10:26 AM

biggest flaw with this game: players like giroux and zherdev inexplicably FALL DOWN when they have the puck for too long.

HoverCarle* 02-12-2011 10:31 AM

its a new feature the added. It has to do with puck control stat I think. If you have someone like Shelley it will happen way faster than with a good player

the upside to this is about half the time I have Zherdev skate up the ice with the puck, some defenseman will touch him with their stick and hell drop to his knees for a tripping call :)

Spongolium* 02-12-2011 02:06 PM

What really irks me about nhl 11, is that you can lay a hit on the computer, and they can ride checks, you get the smallest hit on your own player by the computer, and they automatically lose control of the puck.

That's because certain users online would skate around and around in their own zone to kill the clock once they had the lead.

It's a good idea, but the implementation needs some work.

This is Peter Laviolette, not the coach in NHL that looks NOTHING like him.

You can try dobberhockey's line combos.. I used them for NHL94-11.. Also check GDT's from other teams, they're usually accurate.
I play whoever the Flyers have on the schedule if I'm at home..Scored a nasty shorty with Roo today..

In regards to players falling down, it was added to keep players from milking the clock.. If you keep puck control to 0 for CPU and Human like I do it's even more difficult.

Jeff Carter is and probably always will be my guinea pig for the flaws of overall ratings made by the EA team. Granted they have a lot on their plate making these games, but player ratings should be imperative.

His speed is usually in the 85 range
His wrist shot/accurracy is 84ish
acceleration is in the 85 range as well
body checking and slap shot are both in the 84 range
most of his other stats are in the 84 range
his deking is also around an 84-85

If you explore the ratings of a lot of good players like Carter, you'll see that a lot of them are vanilla'd out like he is. All his stats are basically made even just to push his overall rating up.

As most of us know, Carter never takes slap shots, doesn't hit THAT much, and I've never seen him deke a soul. But his acceleration should be amongst tops in the league and his overall speed and WS power should bother be in the low-mid 90s. He should land somewhere in the 85-87 range overall, but he annually gets stuck at 84 with balanced attributes.

just my 2 cents :)

mattmicko 02-15-2011 10:39 PM

I need to get to the rating suggestions and i will be taking these into consideration, but I need to go through the ratings on NHL, and form my own opinions.

http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/posts/list/4931664.page

Snipsnap12 02-15-2011 11:13 PM

Nodl could probably be up like a 77 or 78 now rather than a 73. He should have good speed, fine passing, weak shot, good balance decent hitting

Carter is the best faceoff guy on the team

Ill post some more detailed suggestions tonight after I play a bit.

no, sorry i do not know, but i'm guessing it will be soon.

Jray42 02-16-2011 04:01 PM

Going by that list/post on that site:

Pronger is always the RD, Carle is LD.

Not sure about last night, so someone correct me if wrong, but isnt Giroux the C and Carter the RW?


Not sure about the ratings on these guys, just double checking:
Carter should be highest rated faceoff man
Next would be Betts

can hardly wait

Snipsnap12 02-17-2011 04:50 PM

still no roster update... getting antsy to have versteeg on the team lol.... also im in fear that the next update wont have zherdev.... while in real life it doesnt bother me he sits that much, but in this game he is simply a beast

phiflyers2003 02-20-2011 11:32 PM

I cant stand playing NHL 11 online the gameplay is so slow compared to NHL 10 online. Would do pretty good but then when pronger came back just made me worse cause how slow he is in the game:rant:

I was lost without pronger in the lineup, his blast from the point, first pass out of the zone, and long reach/poke check are not replacable, plus I think hes rated in the 80's for speed, I have never found his skating to be a problem on the game for me

Snipsnap12 02-23-2011 10:13 AM

Im starting to think they arent going to update the rosters until next week after the deadline
