In the first season I joined the league with 10 games left and made a push for playoffs I finished 8th. Second season I finished 2nd in conference. This season I'm sitting 4th in conference 4 points behind the capitals for 2nd but I have 5 games in hand I have no problems with EA screwing me over. Point is just depends on how you play against other teams sometimes you have to change your gameplay style. Same as defensively. I remember how every team plays so when I go into a game I know what to do. When I play the penguins it's always a high scoring game because we find ways to solve each others D. Anyways just adapt to to people's gaming styles when you play them.

I actually have different strategy sets that I use for a lot of you guys. Some teams I know I will frustrate by keeping their shots to the outside, but letting them shoot quite a bit. They get frustrated because based on shot total they should probably have a goal or 2, but I'll be 8 shots behind but still up by one. Then there are other teams where I try to use an aggressive front, because I know they are going to score on me regardless, so I know I am going to need to put up goals.

EA bites me from time to time. But it's generally in the sims. Hell the first season, about 2-3 months in I was sitting on top of the SE conference, and then I end up missing the playoffs by quite a bit from sim losses. Last season my goaltending was terrible. This year, at least it's looking like I'm fairly safe for a playoff spot.
