My goalie has a GAA of .2 haha. 1 goal in 5 games, but a lot of the games have had limited numbers of shots. It's actually kind of bad because he keeps getting stars, which I guess increases his wage demands?

Can you guys search for "Alex Bolt" he's a LW on free agency, I've had a bid for 4 days on him and just got sniped. I have 5 hours to make a decision before his bid is up.

32 year old LW, would likely be on my 3rd/4th line. Lacks stamina but awesome passer and checker (so likely 4th line). Is he worth the $722K per year that I would have to bid to get him?

Thanks in advance, appreciated.
I'd say he's worth it

including playoffs

That's what happens when good players only have to go against other human head coaches in a 4.x league for 6 games a year...

5-1 win. Stayed up late to redo my tactics, and it paid off bigtime... top two lines were dominant, particularly on the PP... 3 for 6.

Also, gave Miler the nickname "Thriller" and he puts up a 3 point game... coincidence? I think not!

Thanks for the advice. I was leaning toward him. He can always be a PK specialist because of his checking. Or maybe even PP because of his passing/shot.

I won 6-3. My goalies sucks.

I'm pretty sure this guy has the rookie of the year award wrapped upII''m looking forward to him for the next 10 years and at a decent price because of his Briere-like defense.

Actually 4.x leagues seem to have way more human head coaches than 3.x. They might not be as good of players in the game but they can at least set the lines correctly compared to the computer who uses avg only to determine lines. Everyone starts in 4.x so there are actual tons of HC there. My conference only has 5 computer controlled teams, 2 of which are GOP'd. In 4.4 where his guy is there are only 4 computer teams in that conference. In your 3.x conference...12!

Hell, I play 8 games this year just against people from HF!

Beat a team that I thought was the best in the league with my back up goalie in.

Though, I did institute my "anti-Dohn" tactics for the game and, well, they work.

Haha, I was just messing around more than anything else. I know my conference is CPU-heavy... I hate it. Look at Vals conference, though, it's a lot better, if still CPU heavy. The players in 3.x leagues tend to be weaker too due to the CPU not signing draftees for a few seasons there.

Problem is you have to account for Miler and Dohn now, not just Dohn... and if I know you have tactics set to attempt to neutralize him, I'll just counter them by going way off the charts.

Nope, that's just the one that was missed. I guess Joe got around to making it run a little while ago.

That doesn't work like you'd think. The game is somewhat hardcoded that "1 is better than 2 is better than 3 is better than 4" and it's not like EHM where the lines are fairly independent about that sort of thing.

Oh well, I'll just have to focus on shutting down your best lines (defensive RW, please) and working on my initiative this year.

Trust me, putting Dohn and company on the 4th line and setting all the other lines to "Low" ice time would really limit his ice time. Nik has stated that this isn't necessarily the case but it is.

Everyone on my bottom 6 has checking of 80+, haha. It's nice.

L-Train, is that you?

Finally got my first 1.1 shutout after flipping my top two RD. That new 84 AVG 21 year old RD I got is still gaining ~15 TI too. Kid is going to be crazy good.

All I have to say is that if I make it to the finals and you do as well, you've got a bit of a surprise coming. Since my league sucks, I can go relatively Vanilla on the tactics all season long and then just crank it on for the playoffs... while still keeping something in reserve.

I almost never change my tactics during the regular season. I just wanted to see how close I could keep the game.

My tactics for the playoffs is to get to the finals in 6 games and hope that you need to rest Morgan and give me the automatic victory.
