has some serious explaining to do.

The game mysteriously dropped in the 3rd after I score my 5th goal? In a game where Stamkos injured himself on an attempted check?

He says his power went out.

He's been a clean player, so I think he gets the benefit of the doubt.

(You'll recall that you once had to quit a game to go shopping--a game where Crosby was hurt, remember? )

Lmao.

At least that was a tie game!!!

But I agree! Hopefully he gives you that same lead back into the 3rd.

Situation resolved. We reconnected tonight, so no further concerns here.

After the free agent frenzy / draft / resign phase, I think we should consider having everyone quit out and rejoin this league, resetting their CPU and Human DNF rates.

Next year, then, we can implement rules about setting your team to CPU-playable, knowing that, if you can't quit out, playing the CPU isn't a complete gimme.

Just my $.02.

(Not accusing anyone in particular--and this wouldn't account for technical problems--I had two games vs. CPU drop when EA servers went down).

For those who haven't checked in, this is the LAST window of the regular season.

The final playoff spots are still up for grabs in both conferences, and quite a bit of seeding is still to be determined.

For those of you who won't get on to get your games in by tomorrow's scheduled advance, you might want to consider setting your team to CPU playable--particularly if you're going into the playoffs.

I can tell you I've quit out because one my guys got injured in the game. I thought the entire point of playing the CPU was injury prevention?

The point of playing the CPU is avoiding the crazy injuries that come from simulating.

I don't think anyone should quit a CPU game because of an injury in game. That could happen against a human too.

Having an injury happen during a game you're playing is a lot different than an injury happening during the sim.

Still have that game to replay vs CLB, where he "got disconnected" could be true who knows but it's much more likely statistically that when you quit as your player is being carried down the tunnel to an announcer saying that it's going to be a serious injury (Boyle) then it seems to the other GM that you quit on purpose. Just sayin. He remains adamant he disconnected but i'm a man of science. I'll replay him today anyway.

Please don't sim til late Sunday and i'll get my games in. Just need that one vs CLB and to play PHX and SJ who i've sent msgs to. Should have no trouble hooking up.

Really important to let these last games be played and don't rush a sim. I have no idea when you were planning to it but someone said today. I'm just hoping late today.

I'm only in playoffs by 4pts right now in 8th and play SJ who's in 9th and a game to finish with 10min to go 3rd up 2-1 vs CLB so i'd really love to finish and see this seeding play out. Late sunday sim/early monday works best.

Looks like fate will decide.

haven't been able to find , and just missed late last night. (I signed off at midnight--looks like he was around after).

I likely won't be able to get back online before tonight's advance--and I do think we should advance tonight, we can't hold up the league to get the final games in--too much to do before a Monday / Tuesday deadline. Looks like the simulation will determine whether or not I sneak into the playoffs. I believe I need 3 points from those two games, so it seems unlikely.

Full credit to the .

After my 2-0 win a few nights ago, I was pretty optimistic, but they came roaring back to close out the season. Too many dropped points along the way for me, perhaps, to be saved by my 8-2-0 run down the stretch. In either case, I'm generally pleased with the way my team closed down the season--with the exception of malcontent Thomas Vanek, who choose to sit out the last four games with a "stomach" injury.
