3 years but I've never gotten farther since (I think everyone can agree) that it gets boring and stale. After that I'm not sure if you become an RFA. I assume so.

Yeah as aces saido you became a freeagent after your 3rd year, oddly enough your a UFA not a RFA so you can pick what team you wish to sign for

So in my dynasty, I decided to shoot for the number 1 pick. So just for **** and giggles, I signed a 51 overall goalie (to my already terrible Finnish Elite League team). We went 0-23-3 to start the season before beating the Canucks. RNH is my leading goal scorer with 7.

Yeah its really stupid. My rookie Nail Yakupov had 67 goals in his first season and about 115 points and he lost the Calder to some goalie with awful stats.

I've had it once where a goalie didn't win the Hart, when my defensemen had 131 points (Mike Green 26 goals 105 assits +90 or so) he won the Hart, but lets say Tyler Ennis (61 goals and 68 assists that season) was the Art Ross winner, a goalie would have won the Hart.

man ... really disappointing. It's pretty hard to make a trade as is, even more so with these rejection messages that don't even apply to the situation :
I know I was trying to trade for dan ellis and offered alex auld,a prospect and a 2012 first rounder(add by accident) and it said "we believe dan ellis is the future of our goaltending" That's why nhl 11 trades are messed up

Random BAP mode question....

Usually after letting in 2-3 goals your CPU opponents will switch their goalies. Why don't human controlled teams ever do the same? I know you can manually pull your goalie by pressing L1 and Select (or L2 and Select if you use classic controls) on the PS3, but is there a way for your human controlled BAP mode team to switch goalies? Or are you always stuck with your starter in net?

I've been playing BE A PRO for 10 season and have 1,000+ career goals.
I signed a $82.5 M, 5 year deal with the Lightning (that's 16.5 M a season, really unrealistic)

I got my Stammer for around 11,000, and 35 game contracts are easy to come by if you are able to pay for Stammer in the first place.

Anybody here in HUT win a tournament online and don't get the Bonus pucks for completing the tourney? This has happened more to me 4 times or so where I’ve finished the 4th game and I don’t get the bonus and instead of “↑ 2500 pucks”, it’s messed up arrows and you only get the pucks for the game…so annoying.

Quick (and pretty dumb :p) question for you guys, just wondered if there was any way to move draft picks around when altering the rosters in NHL11. Id like to update my rosters to include the fisher and versteeg trades but thats pretty hard with out being able to move picks. Am i just missing something VERY obvious or what??

Is it just me, or does this game give people way too much leeway when it comes to getting poke checked while skating figure eights and circles/semi-circles? Because the guy I just played with online spent a nice chunk of time just ****ing around in his own zone as I, for the life of me, could not strip that puck from him.

Perhaps I'm just overreacting though... because I just finished playing the most insufferable *****, who decided to be a sweetheart and find every way possible to rub his few lucky goals (one of which my player scored on himself) and his apparent immunity to penalties (despite reducing the poke check and stick lift buttons to a fine powder) in my face.

This game isn't doing me any favors tonight.

It's because they play in all 82 games. Even really bad teams will sim to roughly 35 wins.

Is this the cruelest way to score an empty net goal on somebody? I think it is, but that could be just me.

In the offseason 2 days after the draft you can. No midseason resignings in this edition.

I started a BAP on All-Star mode.... A very fast sniper on the wing.

I change the setting so that all the teams have their picks, but the order is changed!

I get passed up at the #1 spot by... THE KINGS.

Who takes me #2 overall? THE LEAFS! Who preceed to make two deals the next round. (I wish I could make this part up....) They trade Kessel for Vokoun and a 1st, then trade Versteeg to Pittsburgh for Tangradi and a 2nd.

Now I'm on the Leafs without the two main goal scorers. Why can't I have nice things?
