Speaking of goalies, is there any way to switch back to a skater once you take charge of the goalie? Too many times I switched to a goalie to try to stop a dump, miss the puck, then struggle to go back and get scored on because I can't make saves.

Yeah, you have to hold R1+X again (controls used to initially take control of the goalie), instead of just hitting pass like the old games. Messes me up a lot too.

Wow. I just turned off Pass assist and auto back skating, the game feels way better. You'd think pass assist would help, but I never miss passes when I have it off and my passes seem worse when it is on.

They did pretty well with the CHL rosters (as they should have 2 months late). Potential ratings were changed for a lot of players and are pretty good for the most part (couple head scratchers). Some ratings changes.

Drouin and Grigorenko snipers?

Artem Sergeyev needs his contract with TB.

Seth Jones is reallllllly dark.

Get ready to hate them again. Instead of moving them to the AHL, they removed all the guys who graduated from the CHL from the game.

I applaud that they added and updated some prospects, but this is just pathetic.

I'm not home right now so I can't check out the new rosters. Anyone have any updates on player ratings? I'd love to hear how they've rated guys like McDavid and Jones.

I hear that some players are basically removed from the game, CHL players that have graduated but obviously aren't on their NHL rosters. What you can do is add these players to a created team, which won't effect the new rosters, then you can transfer them to their appropriate clubs after you download the new roster.

McDavid's 56 overall Playmaker with 4.5 star potential. Probably could use a boost in puck control and passing.

Jones' 60 overall TWD with 4.5 star potential.

Guys like Rielly, Huberdeau, Grigorenko, Danault, and a few other highly touted players got increases as well.

Nick Cousins only has 2.5 star potential. Should be at least 3.5 considering the others that were given out. Kucherov 4.5 stars?!?!?

Don't have access to Xboxlive at school, have they updated the AHL rosters to include college players that have started. As a Pens fan I would like to start a Be A Pro with Bennett, but have yet to be able to.

I'm not talking about momentum after scoring a goal. Even if the game is tied, goalies seem to lose IQ points in the last three minutes of the game and in overtime.

Overtime especially. I can't count the amount of times I've shot a week backhander from the blueline in over time and it just trickles in.

Online BTW.

So EA did good by updating the CHL to current rosters

but

EA did bad buy erasing the guys who graduated on to the AHL

so

EA must be planning an AHL update?. Thats arguably something they haven't done much of before.

They already have it done, or partially done. They showed screenshots of Granlund on Houston (before he got hurt) for the stupid simulation they're running.

Where did EA put Sven Bärtschi?

I did the update on the game via EA, but now I can't find him. Please help me out?

He is gone, EA didn't update the AHL roster, so since baertschi is only exist on Portland and is no longer on that team, he no longer exists

Yes, I went through the effort to insert a barely related star wars reference.

That sucks. The weird thing was that I did a fantasy draft and he was there as a 68 ovr. I missed out on drafting him. That's why I'm freaking confused as to why I can't find him.
Thank you for answering my post.

Licensing issues.

Those players were previously being used in the game under the CHL license. When they updated the CHL rosters, they were no longer allowed to to use them under the CHL license since they're no longer in the CHL.

Players in the AHL have to sign their PHPA union agreement before their names and likenesses can be used for media purposes (including games like NHL 13) under the AHL/PHPA license.

Anyone have any insight as to why the roster updates don't "take" for new GM Connected modes?

Obviously they can't be worked into existing leagues, but I'm surprised that you can't use them for new ones--particularly since the game gives the option to toggle current / default rosters (a choice which doesn't appear to do anything).

Except Bartschi's played in the NHL.. so, according to EA, he's part of the NHLPA and therefore should have automatically been put into the game on the AHL team; I asked them about that a year ago or so.. yet, Bartschi's not in the game, Brandon Saad isn't.. it's all crap anyways. If you can use a players likeness while their in the CHL, why wouldn't you be able to once they jump to the AHL? You've already used their likeness in previous games/rosters (or what they pass as likeness; they can't even get ethnicities right on some players, nevermind handedness, hair colour, etc.).
