I'm still not satisfied with most of what I've got, but so far....

Zetterberg-Ennis-scrub
Raymond-Ryan Carter(boosted to an 82)-scrub
3rd and 4th lines are garbage

Douglas Murray-John Carlsson
Aulie-Smaby
Redden-Salei

Dipietro

Obviously some right wingers would help my cause, I've been targeting Bobby Ryan but have nowhere near enough pucks ever. I'd like to add Etem for the second line to skate with Raymond, and another good Dman and I might start testing myself online.

Loving the new upstairs decisions on goals.

First goal went upstairs for potential goaltender interference, but goal stood. Awesome, simply awesome

Is anyone getting tired of the retarded propensity of the goalies to give up short side goals... especially on wraparounds? I am seriously sick of it, you can't even play defense the way it's really played because the goalie won't cover the short side of the net.

There are times the goalies make great saves, and then there are times that Hiller lets a floater in from the blue line unscreened from someone like Jan Hejda. It's extremely frustrating though.

I think it's kinda mean that I buy players that have expired or expiring contracts and I sell them at a slightly below market value price so people jump on it without thinking lol. I guess that's how I got Karlsson last night.

I just grabbed Luca Sbisa with 6 remaining boosts, no games played, and 95 in checking for 1300 pucks. Buy it now. Thought one of you might appreciate that.

Can someone tell me if HUT is another pure online mode or can you play offline too?

Online because you need to communicate with the EA servers (where your lineups and pucks are stored).

I just snagged Brent Burns for 2000 and Alfredson for 1650. Yandle for 1000 heh

Etem for 500! I knew waiting would pay off. Still can't find a deal for Bobby though.

Server lag is pissing me off majorly. It seems to happen a lot more frequently now, especially in the third period of games.

I think EA has to scale out their server farm, heh.

I'm like 8-17-2 so far, my team is slowly getting better. I thought boosting C.Scneider all the way to his potential (92) before playing him would stop more shots from going in, but no, he lets them in almost as much as my previous 70-overall goalies.

Then again, if I'm playing another guy of my skill level, but his team is loaded up with Zetterberg, Tavares, Brodeur, Doughty, Pronger, Gaborik, etc... it's hard or my top line of Benn - Koivu - Parros to compete heh.

More Ducks and former Ducks have been added; I picked up Pahlsson for 1100 untouched, Wiz for 800 and Visnovsky for 1400.

I hear ya, I got stomped by this guy who had a whole team of NHLers, while my only one was Ryan Carter. He wasn't much better skill-wise, but I couldn't compete with his talent. Sticking to offline until I'm happy with my team. I've got some pretty good talent waiting to be unleashed, I just need a RW and some training cards.

Picked up Ryan with 82 games left for 4k and picked up an untouched Perry for 5,650.

I had absolutely no luck with card packs, Until just recently when I got Mike Richards and Duncan Keith in the same pack .

Man were the creators of this game drunk when they did the contracts?
Mara is a free agent in my Be A GM mode and asking for $4.250 million a season over 3 years yet Sutton is asking for 700k a season.
Frolov is signed through 2014 with the Kings at $3.75 million...
I could go on and on...

I know what you mean. I was doing a Be A GM as the Yotes (So i can use the Jets jerseys and I always do two, as Ducks and Yotes) and I simed the first season. Kyle Turris played 82 games in the AHL, scored 19g,12a,31p and wanted 8.950mil! Also, on the old roster, Wiz wanted 7mil

My team finally got on a small roll yesterday, winning 5 of 6 games played. My record is still horrible though 15-25-2.

Lag is still horrible though, even in some of the games I won, it got ridiculously hard to play/do anything for entire periods

I notice that it's not lagged during off-hours - so it definitely seems like a server load issue more so than my internet connection. Either way, its ruining the fun for me.

Oh, on a side note, Wiz plays like my best Defenseman by FAR and is quite the beast.

Visnovsky - Wiz
O'Brien - M.Konan
M-A. Bergeron - scrub

Are you Xbox or PS? I'm also in Perth on PS and have a 2-3 record thanks to three disconnects, one in a live game and two offline. It sucks. Switched to a wired connection and hoping it helps but might just be that we live in Perth and almost everyone else playing NHL 11 is not. I hope HUT is not unplayable, it's an awesome feature.

PM me if you're PS and want to play some lag free regular online games.

Woah someone else from Perth that uses the internet!? get out of town haha!

I'm on PS3 , yeah I'm thinking about wiring my PS3 to my router, I'd imagine it would help it out alot. Yeah that's a good point, only bad thing with hockey games not many people in Perth / Australia play them.

Yep I'll be keen for some lag free games!
