So I applied 3 consumables to Luca Sbisa, making him an 88 overall. After playing I game I go back to see that he's once again an 84 and all the consumables I used on him disappeared. Anybody else have a problem like this?

In HUT? Training only lasts for 1 game, so you may aswell just sell them

Does anyone have any tips for defending against people online who only use players who are insanely fast?

The game favours speed so much that a player like Grabner can go end to end easily because the defensemen turn around so slow.

People have started realizing that fast players are ridiculously good because they can fly by everyone without being pokechecked. Now I keep running into people who use Raymond, Grabner, Cogliano, and Havlat so it's a pain in the ass trying to contain them.

People can do some pretty creative things to get the game do what they want. I've never seen one of those players on waivers and I've actually never even seen those players traded. The only time I've seen 80+ overall players put on waivers is if they have very high cap hits, low trade value and usually they're also having bad seasons.

The only real problem with waivers that I've had is teams will often throw a prospect you traded them on waivers and they'll be picked up if you had that player in the NHL. For example, I traded Dana Tyrell, Even McEneny (Prospect I had playing for me), another prospect and a first round pick to Phoenix for Aaron Ekblad and a 3rd line center, Phoenix immdietely put the 4 star 74 overall McEneny on waivers and he was promptly picked up. That's my only problem with waivers, teams won't think anything of throwing a valuable player on waivers if their overall is too low.

Stand still, spam poke check lol. Most people expect people to try to move to try to stop them, if you just stand your ground it usually surprises them, don't turn and hit the pokecheck, hit the poke check before they get to you.

What? This wasn't the case in previous years, right? Wow, they're useless then. There's no point in getting prospects...

Set it to NZ if you want your team to hang Back, Set it to FC if you want to be aggressive on the forecheck

One thing I HATE - those 'goals' that you have where your shot apparently hits the post, only the puck doesn't ping off and stops as if it went in the net. There's no 'ping' sound either so it makes you think it's a goal. Really, really irritating.

That just happened to me a few minutes ago. It was tied, late in the 3rd period, and I had it happen. It made it worse because I lost the game in overtime

Another issue I have with online stuff - I know it's not 100% accurate, but going by the team logos that people have most people I match against are either playing from Canada or the Midwest. I have not played a single person with a Ducks, Sharks, Kings, Phoenix etc. logo in any of the games I've ever played. The closest I think has been the Stars and Avs.

The point? This means I get horrible lag every game which makes it feel like I'm playing in slow-motion.

It's something I hate in all EA sports games actually - let me match up with people in the region I choose! Implement some regional leagues! Unfortunately, EA have progressively shown they don't care about ping, going from numbers to colored bars to NOTHING to show what kind of ping you're getting to someone. It also hides any issues with their own infrastructure, so less money for them to spend.

Most games do it even if they don't show you that they're trying to match you up with someone close to you. EA games definitely do this, if you check/ask where the people you playing with are from, unless you're from somewhere with hardly any people, you'll usually get someone near year you. Case in point why I haven't played someone from anywhere farther south than Philadelphia, farther east then Boston, farther west than Chicago, and farther North than Sudbury in I don't know how long.

Yeah, but personally, I don't want it to extend its search after it fails to find someone close by within 5 seconds. I would prefer to wait and play a game where my ping's decent rather than waste 20 minutes of my life playing out an exercise in utter frustration. Hence, I would like a hard option to specify where I want to search.

In my Gm connected league, one guy traded McLeod and Stefan Elliot plus 2 or 3 first round picks to Dallas for Erikson, Goligoski and Glennie. Then Dallas puts Jamie Benn and Cody Eakin on waivers. wtf

Stupidest thing happened to my GM connected league today. So at 6:30 pm our commish advanced the league, once the advancement was finalized all of us came online to play... At this time everybody's Xbox freezed. All 8 of us tried over 15 teams to get into the league and it froze, every time. Any other game mode would be fine, even other GM connected leagues would work. But for some reason, ours wouldn't. I have given up hope for the night. Hoping its better tomorrow. Anybody have this happen?

I have no idea why they they've included that little feature in this game - if the goalie has the puck covered, he has it covered, and the play is dead. Why the hell would you let other players free that puck?

It's just dumb.

On September 14th, the Edmonton Oil Kings tweeted this:

EdmOilKings RT if you think @EASportsNHL needs to make sure @NHL_Oilers 2nd round draft pick @MitchMoroz is included in their next roster update #NHL13
http://twitter.com/EdmOilKings/statu...38901736607744

..and ten days later, EA thought they'd finally address it:

At least that may mean a roster update will be coming soon.
