What if it wasn't his PSN but the game name to join him?

There is no such thing as a game name in CoD.

Nice, he added me. Looks like he's playing Borderlands 2.

I did this. You'll find there's about a dozen NHL caliber defensemen and you'll have to search to fill out the forwards. For goalies Jeff Frazee and Alex Stalock are probably the best rated.

Nice... my weekend starts tonight so I'll start messing with it. Probably bust out some old North Stars uni's or something. I'll probably throw myself in net as the main goalie though. Thanks for the input.

So I finally finished my pro's season in the CHL and got drafted 1st overall by Dallas. I thought "Not my first choice, but okay. Dallas has Eriksson, Benn, Lehtonen, etc. That's pretty cool. Plus I can wear the North Star's jersey when I feel like it."

..."Oh bummer Jagr and Whitney both retired right before I got drafted. Well that's unfortunate. It'll still be okay."

..."Wait...why are Benn, Lehtonen, Morrow, Roy, Ryder, and Bachman all listed in the free agents section? ...oh."

So now as I start my first NHL season the top line is Eriksson, Fiddler (76 overall), and Fraser (70 overall). But don't worry, M. Fine is on the NHL team and he's a whole 60 overall. Also, our goalie is Jack Campbell who is a 69 overall. Seriously, how does this even happen now that the game has "improved AI"?

Guess I'll be going after that trophy for requesting a trade...

Wow. Show some loyalty. That team drafted you.

I have 5 first round picks and 4 third round picks. All from trading people drafted in the last three years. All except 2 were from the fourth round or later and weren't any good. Three of the first rounders are from the bottom three in the western conference. Superstar GM, too. Thanks EA.

YES. It looks like there are PS3 power save settings for the controller. That's been my #1, #2, and #3 complaints since getting the system.

Now maybe I can play a video game more than once a week.

I never knew/heard about it. I got my PS3 about a year and a half ago...didn't see it in the settings anywhere, especially in the CONTROLLER SETTINGS MENU.

You're absolutely right, forgot about that. Now that he's playing in the AHL shouldn't he be allowed to be put in the game?

Also, anyone know how to send players to juniors in BAGM? I can send certain players, but not ones such as Coyle or Dumba.

Did you play them in 9 games or more to start your season?

Nope, this is still during the preseason.

I see Klefbom is in the game so there's no reason Brodin shouldn't be.

If you're in your roster management screen and sending them down from the NHL squad, you don't get a choice of where to send them, they will automatically go to whatever team the game feels is right, either AHL or CHL.

It may not send them to the CHL yet during pre-season, though. They will go there automatically if they are not on your NHL roster.

Im really having a hard time with the HUT. I've played a decent number of games, but I dont really get anywhere. When I finally get a decent amount of pucks I have to spend most of it on bronze packs so I can get contracts for my players. Ive managed to get enough pucks for two gold packs but everything I got is no higher than 80 ovr, and is worth about 300 pucks on the transfermarket.

What to do? Just play a load of games and hope for a decent player you can trade for a couple of thousand pucks on the transfermarket?

The only ppl who like HUT fall into one of two categories:

1. Rich valley kids who use Daddy's credit card to buy a good team.

2. Players who just collect enough to get the certain players they want and play mostly CPU games

I absolutely loved the idea of HUT when it came out, but it has always frustrated me beyond belief that I have given up on it completely now.

Best recommendation I can give: buy contracts from the trading section rather than buying a bronze pack for contracts. Spending 600 pucks in the trading section can get you more contracts per puck, since you should be able to find single-digit game contracts for the minimum at any given time.

Me personally, I would shop around the cheapest 20-25 game contracts. They have about 3x as many games as the single digit ones, but don't cost 3x more.

When I did play HUT, the only time I bought packs was when they had mega deals on the weekends, and I spent Microsoft Points to get them.

the Trading section is where you have the best bet to get what you actually want. search for how much that item is, then save up for it.

and don't waste you pucks on training cards this time....they only last one game.
