Those seem inacurate... I wouldnt use em.

Staal's checking sucks... Sangs is slow, Artem cant win draws... etc etc.

I understand rating prospects low... but look at the stats on guys like Bourret and Dawes and they're fitting... these just suck.

Yeah, but I'm scoring 6-7 a game.

I should bump up the difficulty, it's only on Pro.

EA season sim

Canadian Press

9/26/2007 8:37:54 PM

VANCOUVER - The Stanley Cup is headed to San Jose this season, according to a simulation by EA Sports using its made-in-Vancouver NHL 08 video game.

The simulation has the Sharks defeating Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins in six games in the final, with Joe Thornton winning the Conn Smythe Trophy.

The video game has defending champion Anahaeim finishing first in the West at 51-24-7, followed by Colorado (48-26-8), Detroit (46-28-8), San Jose (43-22-17), Vancouver (47-28-7), Calgary (46-27-9), Edmonton (42-31-9) and Nashville (36-28-18).

The Rangers (52-21-9) won the East, followed by Ottawa (49-26-7), Carolina (44-32-6), Pittsburgh (50-23-9), Tampa Bay (49-24-9), New Jersey (41-27-14), Toronto (41-28-13) and Buffalo (40-28-14).

Montreal was 12th (41-34-7) in the East.

The Sharks' gruelling road to the Cup in the playoffs took them past the Canucks and Red Wings, both in seven games, before dispatching the Oilers in six games in the simulated conference final.

The Oilers downed Colorado in seven games in the first round of the playoffs, then beat Anaheim in six games before losing to the Sharks. Detroit took care of Calgary in six games in the first round.

The simulation had the Penguins downing Tampa Bay in six games, Carolina in five and the Rangers in seven.

Toronto edged Ottawa in seven games to open the playoffs, only to lose to the Rangers in six.

The simulation has Crosby winning the Hart Memorial Trophy as MVP but losing the scoring lead to Tampa's Martin St. Louis by one point. St. Louis finished with 43 goals and 63 assists for 106 points while Crosby had 105 (51-54).

The Rangers' Jaromir Jagr of the Rangers led the league with 54 goals.

Pittsburgh's Sergei Gonchar was named top defenceman with goalie hardware going to Vancouver's Roberto Luongo (Vezina) and New Jersey's Martin Brodeur (Jennings).

Pittsburgh's Michel Therrien was named top coach.

Question about EA 08. I just got it recently, and being that I havn;t played a video game in 10 years, I totally suck at it! But, I am still at the rookie level and after 5 games, I am now scoring and winning. My question is about the Dynasty Mode. Can I create my own player, and use him on my dynasty team? So far I have created about 3 players, and when I go to dynasty mode they are not listed under free agents. Is that only for regular play?

I love 08. I'm a fan.. but the online is driving me nuts. People seem to take these BS shots from ridiculous angles and they go in. There's nothing worse than losing to someone in OT who scores on some crap goal.

I'm 9-0 in my franchise as of now. I traded Shanny cause he's so slow... I couldn't take it anymore. Traded him to Buffalo straight-up for Maxim Afinogenov. He's nasty in the game. Maxim-Gomez-Hossa is my 2nd line and are going crazy. Here's a youtube of a goal I scored with Maxim.

Nothing too impressive, but I liked it.

you made a youtube of a goal? lmao.

Anyways, Im a year into the future...

I've resigned and then traded both Straka and Montoya as well as Malik.

Lundqvist resigned for 5 yrs at like 9.4 million per.... so it was hard to get under the cap:

my current lineup:

Prucha - Gomez- Jagr

Prucha is like an 88 rating now... seriously.

Radulov - Drury - Callahan

Shanny retired... the year prior I traded Hutchinson and a 1st for Radulov, who has himself become I think an 86 overall, and Callahan in an 81

Dawes - Stastny - Bourret

Dawes is a 79... Traded Straka for Stastny straight up... Bourret has become an 80 also

Byers - Dubinsky - Hollweg.

My D corps is:

Jack Johnson [yeah, LA traded him to me for Staios, whom I traded Malik for the year prior to cut some $$$]

Brent Burns, whom I picked up on waivers and became an 80 overall.

I let Rosie walk cuz he wanted 4.5 million as he is an 84 overall and made the all star game the year prior.

Tyutin, Girardi, Pock and Baranka

All of them are rated 80, except Baranka who is I think a 78.

Lundqvist and Vally in net.

Traded for some Sanford goalie who's in hartford.

Korpedo is a 79 and will surely get a call up next year.

My team is killer... although I cant wait to get Jagr off the books and save 8.4 million... because of him, I couldnt sign the availabe UFAs that were Redden and Phaneuf or Heatley... yikes.

Am I the only person who scores a ridiculous amount of goals with Nigel Dawes? Someone at EA must really like him.

I sent him back down for not being productive.

Not one person on my team has 1 point a game yet, Scott Gomez has like 53 in 63 games and Sean Avery has 47 in 63 games and he's second lol.

I'm still in the 8th seed... next year will be better hopefully.

Is there any way to move created players to an already in progress dynasty?

Yes but what happens is they are in the FA pool and you have to offer them a contract to get them which is really bad. Atleast that's what I had to do. But you can't add a created player to a already existing dynasty which is stupid.

Ok so now that they games have been out I'll ask for a more definitive word. Should I bother getting NHL 08 or 2k8 for my PS2 or just invest in the 360 and/or PS3 and get them for that because the PS2 system has nothing new other than the AHL?

Do you have an HDTV? If so, splurge on the 360. I haven't fired up my PS2 in over 2 years...actually I think a friend borrowed it and never returned it. I don't miss it at all though.
