I believe it just improved the stability of the servers. Hopefully, less lag and dropped games.

As far as I can tell, it had a negligible effect on menu speed, and it didn't do anything to affect the mode's mechanics.

I didn't lag at all when I played a game earlier today against Nashville, which was a nice change.

Great game by the way Nashville. 6 round shoot out in a 0-0 game. Always beauties when we play each other haha.

Just my opinion, so take it for what it's worth. You've got Crosby and Roy at C already. Pretty solid 1-2 punch.

Want to trade me Roy back

Boston was suppose to be on last night. Didn't see him. But anybody hear about the Ducks and the Sens? They didn't answer my PMs from yesterday afternoon.

I have no idea. I didn't take over the team until halfway through the second season.

I'm not complaining though, he's unreal. Hurt, but unreal.

Numbers 1 and 2 didn't trust the CPU's best-available rating, I'm guessing.

I've never seen him not rated 1st in year 1, so I'm actually curious as to whether the first two picks shuffled their priorities.

I had the #2 pick and I did mess with my rankings a little. I hadn't run an offline GM mode so I was doing this blindly, and without knowing how the game pre-ranked things, how could you pass up MacKinnon? I had 1)MacKinnon 2)Klimchuk 3)Shinkaruk. MacKinnon jumped 8 points after 1 year, so I have some hope for him. Plus, he's a center when I already have Stamkos and Stastny, so I'm ok letting him develop first for a bit then deciding if I'll trade Stastny or move someone to a wing.

I think he jumped 8 over two years, right?

But, yeah, he should turn out well. I was looking at his attributes, and he has some really good grades already.

Well I drafted him in 2013 and he was a 60 for all of 2013/14, and then in the 2014 off-season he moved up to 68, so it was an 8 point jump over one off-season.

Interesting.

I thought maybe he progressed right before the draft, because I think he is 60 in the default roster.

Wow I don't usually whine about this game but I just got scored five goals from the short side, same exact place. No NHL goalie would let those in, especially not 5. Seriously, first time ever I didn't even feel like playing this game. ****** ****** game.

I don't blame the GM for scoring those, I do blame EA for making such a ****** glitch available.

Yeah the wrist shot always goes in when I play you and Pittsburgh, don't know why.

Plus you injured Spezza. I hate you.

I drafted shinkaruk because at the time i had just done a offline beagm... -__-

and he jumped to a 75 after one year and then 84 the next. And this was all simmed and on superstar and the hardest mode so i was like cool i got this. And yeah, shinkaruk progressed from a whopping 62 all the way to a 63 this season. Also traded gerbe to calgary who then jumped to an 85.. for the 6th pick, who i picked morrissey with, who in offline beagm does the same thing murray did, 63-75-81 and neither murray nor morrissey has progressed more than 3 points. And same with barkov who i got 8th.

Columbus prospects not developing well? Who said this game isn't realistic.

Actually johansen is leading my team quite well this season. All my D are putting up numbers, as are ennis, brassard and johansen. Shinkaruk has 3 points playing 3 and 4th line minutes lol.

its because this game hates us.... well I think we've split our last 6 games at 3 a piece (here and in Sitwell) so maybe it hates Toronto more?
