Autosave.....I don't cheat, but i try to keep things realistic....I can't possible have Simmonds 4th in my Depth Chart for right wingers and lose every game by a margin such as 6-1 or 8-2 with Quick/Bernier having a GAA over 3.75. i want to quit when something stupid happens like how i lost 11-2 to the Wild through simulation....or how i have a horrible team like the oilers and end up 2nd place in the West. Not to mention players still are asking for too much.

HUT: the stupid penalties ruin the game for me. It's hard enough to Poke check the CPU and so they made it even EASIER to get a tripping penalty by calling it without the opponent even falling. Elbowing penalties are just bizarre. i got a game misconduct for checking someone from the SIDE and got called for boarding. I couldn't edit my lines when the player got kicked out so i had a 4th liner playing on my 1st line.

I don't want to piss and moan about it. I mean, i bought it and will always play it because i just love the sport. I just have to get used to this crap and i always remind myself that no game is, or will ever be, good enough for me to not complain about it.

Heh. It sounds like we are in the same boat. I love HUT mode so most of my time is spent playing with those silly rules, and being frustrated at the computer. I was trying to gain some pucks and build a half-way decent team before I started to play other players but it looks like I may have to give that up and just start playing other players with what I got.

I am trying to do the ultimate tournament for single player, I had to buy Emery and Garon to get my goalie rating high enough, and you are forced to play in superstar difficulty, and 90% of my time is spent just trying to get the puck back and taking one penalty after another I won the first one by only like 2 goals, and then the second game I barely squeaked by in a 1-0 shootout victory >.< Dunno how much longer I am going to last...

But I needed to shoot for bigger prizes because I am not earning enough pucks playing the basic tournament and beating the CPU 13-0 in pro difficulty. Also the contracts can get annoying. Seems I need to apply contracts to a couple of guys after every single game which greatly cuts into profits >.<

It is a tedious grind stuck with tedious rules.
