I dunno why Semin seems to go down for 40+ games all the time. It's really starting to annoy me.

Hey guys. I need to take a break from playing.. It's becoming abundantly clear that I'm one of if not the worst player in the league, and I'm just sick of getting so frustrated.. All buffalo games will be simmed for the time being, but I will still continue with the GM part and doing all of the sims. Not sure when I will get back to playing, but for now I've just had enough.. The fun is completely gone for me..

Landeskog - Malkin - McGinn
Duchene - Getzlaf - Stastny
Lazar - O'Reilly - Parenteau
Olver - Bailey - Jones

Phaneuf - Johnson
Hejda - Barker
Josi - Cole

I'm quite the opposite. When my games are simmed, my team loses because of how young and inexperienced they are. I have to physically play my games to actually win some games.

I think waivers will slowly kill my team over the course of this season.

Nope. I have 10m in cap space. I am using Grabovski right now because JVR is still injured for another 20 games or so, but once JVR comes back, gonna scratch Grabovski. Connacher is a 76 PLY prospect, and Panik is a 70 SNP prospect and both are just as good as grabovski for speed and shooting. Thats all I need and well if Panik jumps like he did last season, he should be around a 74 or 75 with 85 SSP/SSA/WSP/WSA & 86 ACC/END/SPD lol.

I think you just describe the EA sports momentum engine/intimidation engine lol. When your team gets out-hit, especially road games I've noticed, suddenly your team turns into a bunch of pylons and nothing works. Try acquiring bigger guys and hit more to get some intimidation/momentum on your side.

p.s.The intimidation/momentum engine seems to turn on If you give up a couple of quick goals in short succession as well. Hope this helps.

thats momentum dood, not necessarily the other team being better. You just dont have any. its the worst feeling in the world when you dont have any cause it feels like your team just cant do anything. it also translates game to game. if youre on a losing streak you'll likely start the game kinda sluggish whereas all your players have a 'jump' to them if you've been winning.

on a side note, i played you as LA and it was a fairly close game.

I feel the same, I've never struggled so much to get goals in my life. Its frustrating when it seems like every poke check done to me connects while they can stream in past all my defence, bounce off checks, go through pokes and score.

On a side note, the two games I played against you in another league a couple days ago was the most fun I've had on this game in weeks, and we split them. I don't mind losing I just hate being out of the game after only 10 minutes.

I traded Ronik Ryan O'Reilly for Phaneuf (its Cal in my lineup), then I signed Getzlaf to a massive 8 year deal in free agency, and then traded Downie, Elliott, Brule, and 2 1st rounders for Malkin (who the computer won't resign, but I wanted to make sure I got him)
