I think free agency signing ends at the trade deadline. At least that's how it is in the NHL, don't know if GMC factored that in.

Well, I'm just 5 points out of a playoff spot but I'm really not worried about making it anymore, just playing for fun and hoping for the best. Good luck everybody

EAs servers have been horrid for me lately. I never lose my XBL connection but every once in a while EA drops me and I get an "EA servers are not available at this moment" message when trying to reconnect



trying to get my last game in versus FLA

pull off a miracle and shut out


The Montreal Canadiens and star goaltender Carey Price shut out the red hot Florida Panthers Sunday afternoon. The win means the Canadiens have not lost in regulation in their past 4 (3-0-1) and have a decent 4-3-3 record in their past 10.

"We realized the Panthers play a very good defensive game and decided to give them a taste of their own medicine" said Habs coach Michel Therrien. Therrien ran a very passive forecheck all game long and it paid off with zero pucks finding the twine behind Carey Price.

Panthers goalie Jacob Markstrom played like the league leader he is, until Vinny Lecavalier managed to score his 12th goal of the season with a wrister glove side. Erik Cole added an empty netter (his team leading 36th point) to ice the game for the Habs, who now sit in 12th, but just 5 points out of 8th in the East.

Yeah that's weak... I mean yes he's on the bubble for 8th spot in the east so obviously he's desperate, but so are a lot of other teams including myself, and that is just not fair for the rest of us. It's one thing if you guys set something up for a certain time and then you just didn't show up when you were supposed to play, then I could see him being able to play CPU, but that's the only exception really...

Fuss, perhaps we can get some sort of a rule where:

If a team responds to a message with a reasonable attempt to set up a game, and then a GM goes ahead and plays that GMs CPU with clear disregard for the attempt to set up the game they forfeit a 1st or 2nd rounder in the next draft to the team they played CPU against?

That's ****ing BS that he played the CPU. I'm trying to scratch and claw my way back into the playoff picture and **** like that is going to make it impossible for me to do it.

Jeeze, I'd rather make the playoffs fairly. I don't see the fun in ignoring messages then playing the CPU to make it in. What are you proving by doing that?

Build you AI bro if you haven't already!

I just took a look at mine, and for some reason my team strats were to pinch, forecheck hard and expose to oddman rushes, and play some dumb PP strategy. I think it makes a huge difference in CPU v CPU games. No wonder Luongo has been getting lit up in the sims lol.

I mean we already have a rule in place. And im pretty sure its a no tolerance rule. Nashville is in the thick of a playoff hunt in the west as well so that just ****s nashville even more.

Its ridiculous. The whole point of this league is to play another person, yes theres a double advance but that's just to keep things moving quickly.

As a team trying to overtake Nashville for the 8th seed I think that was a really cheap move by Philly.

Nashville fails to inform anyone that I've messaged him several times and he stopped responding to my game questions after I refused to trade him Hartnell for scraps.

Next time make an attempt to set up a game, brah.

ugh.

as one of the teams in the fight for an Eastern playoff spot that is very cheesy.

this is why, as a very active player who sets my games up, i only turn on my PC when I know it's a weird block where I won't be available enough, trust no one.

Well. To be fair if I make it into the playoffs ahead of you it's probably because I keep beating you. So blame that not me taking one whopping point from Nashville!
