They could make players feel different, and do it organically, simply by making a better AI and having players be where they're supposed to be, and not by having 90% of the goals scored be off of some wacky idiotic bounce or something. When there are so many wild cards and just ridiculously wacky stuff going on, of course everyone's going to feel similar and stats aren't going to reflect attributes.

I don't think any of these gripes are unwarranted, I face palm just as much when I win, as I do when I lose. I HATE scoring off of a weak backhand from the blue line, unscreened, five hole. I literally go "Jesus christ that's horrible". Just once, I'd love for someone to hand me my ass LEGIT, and not because the AI has no idea where to be, or off of some stupid weak ass goal. I can't control every single player on the ice, it's like I'm playing with guys who have literally never watched a game of hockey in their lives, nevermind are the best in the world, and that's just not right.
I love that you totally get my Chel life. I used to spaz out so damn hard and still do sometimes and I broke so many controllers and other things spazzing out on sh***y wins/goals. But i've tried to be calm and now that I know it happens to everyone(I should've known this) I am not as mad(or as mad as I used to be). I didn't/don't understand why I spaz so much when I lose on a HUT game compared to a EASHL Club/Team game. I rarely spaz on the game other than HUT. Maybe becuase it's the only 5 player team I'm playing with. I'm sure it's normal to be pi**ed at the 5 V controlling game.

I really hope NHL14 is ALOT better.
