Beat Flyers lost to Calgary due to a bad bounce with 16 seconds left. Man, can't catch a break!

With the release of Halo 4 tomorrow i might even advance Wednesday as planned. Its getting a little weird in this league. It seems like half the GMs get most, if not all, of their games in by the first night or next day. Then the other half needs the entire rest of the sim period to get their games in lol.

Its getting harder to find a happy medium.

Most of the teams in the West make it nearly impossible to cross the blueline without something special. Maybe this league is realistic after all lol. The West has tighter D while the East is all offence?

Finally!!!! Some authenticity on EAs part, but the Gretzky like Ovi is inexcusable

If they're poke checking you too much jsut drag the puck way out wide and glide so that your body gets in the way which results in a penalty. Or just Do the 180 so that your back is faced to them. Or if they're focusing too much on the poke chheck pass off to another player they're prob not paying attention to.

Nevermind... Saw your message about not advancing .

P.S. if you come into my zone with the puck 3 feet in front of you, I'm either going to poke check you or destroy you with my D (see injuries to Kessel and Tedenby). By the way, am I the only one still rocking the drop pass?

Thats how I feel most games, fortunately it worked in my favour that game. Detroit is the most difficult blue line to penetrate. (yes I said penetrate) He pokes away all my passes. Most difficult team I've play against. I think he shut me out our last 3 games but I aint complaining.

Det just came back from 3-1 on me. I am pretty ******** about it. Especially when I know how he is going to score but just blow my coverage.

Nice job.
Woah woah, stupid? Inebriated monkey? I admit what I did was wrong, I won't do it again, no need for overkill haha.

What a garbage game against Edmonton.

First goal comes off a penalty shot with every player in the zone (not sure how that works), then first period of gongshow penalties all around, with a crappy tip to tie the game in the second.

All could have been set up for a nice finish except for a stupid goaltender pass right on the opposition's stick for a GWG with 2 minutes to go in the 3rd.

Jokes.

For the record I am not griping as if I would have won otherwise. I was getting outplayed.

Remember that time Korpikoski and Voracek got injured for 25 games?

Yah... Now we got Ales Hemsky out for 30.

3 of my top 4 wingers out.

*facepalm*

I try to use the drop pass as much as possible your AI teamates have difficult reading it so often I make a drop pass to the D and they back off of the puck
