Wellwoods goal, the third one, was quite ugly as well I was trying to cut around your D to the net but ran out of room so flipped a backhand on net from the goal line and it went right through the short side.

Too bad your goaltending has been so brutal because you outplayed me like crazy, shots were what? 30-12 or something like that for you?

I must say it is nice to be on this side of the terrible goaltending for once tho as Hiller has been pretty disappointing but it sucks to even win games with pansy wristers.

How quick until Evo tells us both that Nuevy is available? haha
No man I feel bad I don't wanna advertise and litter this thread with that... I am going to start playing him against select teams though, show him off a little

NHL Point Leaders

1. Pominville - 15
2. Skinner - 14
3. Vanek - 13

I should wait until people catch up to 14 GP but seeing three sabres for the pics is too sweet.

lost 5-2 to the Stars but I surprisingly dominated that game, the TOA was 6:50-6:05 in favor of me, and the shots were 32-17 also in favor of me. vokoun and fleury just weren't up to snuff. Then I played Anaheim and Christensen scored a really pretty goal, but I ended up losing in a shootout 2-1. Eriksson is out for 27 games and that is really tough considering he is my team's leading goal scorer, on a team that can barely score. Do I get an injury trade now? I know it isn't 30 games but it comes damn close to it. I definitely think Toffoli is staying on the top line, he plays well and he has 2 points in 2 games this season.

Can people start to switch up their plays a bit... getting really bored of trying to defend the high wrist shot from the slot ALL *** game. For the record, you can also score the following ways:

1) Five Hole
3) From your Defence
4) One timers
5) Deking. Please see tutorial on the Skill Stick. It has been available for many years now.
6) Slap shots/Wrist shots from anywhere else
7) Many more... just try some out! It may even be fun!

Thanks.

I've been trying to do that all season, but my record pretty much explains itself. Although I think I did use the high wrist shot from the slot quite a bit in our game.

The NYI's GM offered me Hodgson and a 3rd for Crosby+Tangradi................................... .......................... biggest.lowball.ever.

Also Crosby is off the market for now, but everyone else is available (including Letang, although i'm not set on moving him)

I do that. And thats a huge part of how i usually outshoot my opponent 2:1 and have almost twice their TOA, and still lose. Only certain goals go in in this game. I'll get bored if all i do are wristers from the slot so i make a point to cycle as much as i can, take slappers with my defense, try and deke with my quicker guys, etc...

Oops my bad and I have a question and it is sadly a trade question. Eriksson is out for 27 games and he is my leading scorer. I know the rules say he needs to be out for 30 games for me to get an injury trade but he is my leading scorer on a team that can barely score and 27 isn't far off from 30.

Yeah... Even though it sucks I believe 30 is the strict number.. if we let you trade at 27 wouldn't the number be 27?
and then what if a guy wants the same treatment with a 25 game injury... there has to be an end all be all number.

Can I play on your guys' club? I'm tired of being on all these serious top teams and just want to have fun. I'll play whatever.

Plus - now when the league advances and theres a frenzy of players looking to play games, I won't be busy

That is true but I think the number should come back down to 25. I mean losing your leading scorer for more than a quarter of the season is pretty significant especially with the way things have been going for me this season hell on any team losing your leading scorer for a quarter of the season is a huge loss.

No, 30 is right. If it were any less we'd be having way to many trades during the season.. players get injured.. GMs should be building their teams to accommodate injuries with depth players. Yeah it sucks, but injuries happen.. everyone has to deal with them.

EDIT: For the record.. I dont even really like the "Injury Trade" to begin with. Realistically what teams IRL have gone out and made a trade because their player was injured? I can't really think of an instance where this happened.. I could be wrong though, but I think generally GMs use this as an opportunity to give some younger guys a chance.
