Also, I wish you could edit your players equipment in gm connected. It bothers me that the blue in millers pads doesn't match the blue in the jerseys...

Can anyone tell me if I got Paul Ranger from UFA? Also offered Enver Lisin a deal and Zherdev(though he is gone to HC).

I'm excited to try out all my new players.

If any of you people are on tonight, I can be on anytime after like 330 EST, so Let me know.

That was such a frustrating game.

I'm having so much trouble with the speed rush down the wing.

My dmen (even though Chara is a stud he's slow as ****) are always getting burnt by the blue line.

If your team has quick forwards, I'm done for. Feelsbadman.jpg
You should set your defensive strategies to compensate for the slow D. Have them on collapsing, protect net etc and it it might help them stay in position. Also abuse, Chara's pokecheck reach.

One thing that I hate about AI D men, is that often when you grab a D man and chase someone over towards the boards, the other D man just stands still while the opponent's other winger can just skate past him and be very wide open.

You're telling me. Holtby still has a Caps mask.

Whenever I try to go to free agents in my GM options it skips right over it and I can't try to sign any free agents. Any idea why?

Might have the max number of contracts in your organization?

I'll be on around 5:30EST if you want to get one of our games in today?

I figured that. I just dropped Richard Park so hopefully I sign someone now.

It's a bug in the game. If you have an iPhone, you can go to free agents on the app, if not you are screwed until it's patched.

Something I noticed is that if I use the d-pad, it will skip over options.
Like if I press down on it once, it will go down twice in-game.
Use the left stick if you aren't already.

Ranger is still in the free agency pool.
Either he didn't like your offer, or he decided to wait extra long.

Sounds likely--particularly if you offered him what he was asking for.

The whole mode needs to make it a bit easier to figure out that sort of information. If they reject a contract--why, etc. I'm not sure why they can't use the mailbox feature--there are categories for this stuff--pending trades, FA responses, but they always seem to be blank.

This year seems to be like a beta test of the GM connected mode, it has a ton of problems.

Hopefully next year they can speed up the menus and add things like you suggested.

Cap space isn't my problem, must be contract # or he is just slow

Does my trade with the blues before the GM switch still stand? I accepted it but it didn't go through when the game advanced. Is it grandfathered in, or does the current GM have to accept it now?

Current Sabres lineup

Vanek-Lecavalier-Pominville
Ennis-Ott-Pouliot
Gerbe-Adam-Hecht
Foligno-Grigorenko-Kaleta
Ellis
Leino (injured)

Myers-Leopold
Ehrhoff-Regher
Sekera-Weber
McNabb

Miller
Enroth

I wish I had thought of this last night, but my guess is any pending trades are cancelled when a GM leaves so that you can't just trade your players and quit the league. I'll honor the trade, I guess we'll just have to wait till next period for it to go through.
