No not really, If its the same thing that happened to me in another league he wont be able to trade or play with Couture all season.

I tried to trade for him but it says he is not available for a trade because of the pending offer sheet.

I think because he got my picks he should flip him to me for a 7th round pick in the offseason or whenever the first chance he is allowed.

haven't we discussed this? Roster management is part of the game. Watch your rosters or your going to have players waived.

it was a result of a late trade and waiver pick ups so I can understand this happening at least in this case

This is honestly getting so frustrating and stupid. I dominate so many games yet the other goalie plays great and mine lets in beach balls. My goalies are good for about 4 bad goals per game. I would look for a better goalie, but I don't think it matters considering I've been through Backstrom, Bryzgalov, Kipper, Crawford, Howard and its been the same story.

Yeah, our game should have been a lot closer then it was. I know I play a different style then most where I try to use defense and counter attack so I don't always end up with a ton of shots...But, your goalie let in probably 3 he shouldn't have...Like I said to you on there, EA screwed up big when they listened to all the 10 year old kids complaining that they couldn't score at will on the original goalies. I'd much rather see a ton of 2-1 and 1-0 games then 8-5 and 6-3 and 9-4 and crap like that. Those games are the rarity in hockey. Even a normal 3-2 would be ok. But it seems like as soon as a goalie lets in 2 goals he's almost useless half the time.

I've found this to be the case with me recently. though the fact my defending is god awful at times doesn't help.

But the last game session I lost 4-0 8-1 6-1 and then got 2 close games where my goalie actually played well, both against Bzur where shots/moves that resulted in goals against in previous games were just being stopped. 1-0 win and a 2-1 OT win. It could just be that Vyse Czar & Ffaithful are much better players, but I'm sure last season I had much closer games with Vyse. Either way still enjoying playing despite getting hammered a lot.

I'm not sure if changing the skill level that the CPU is set to does anything to rectify it, but I'd hope next year for GM connected they give you an option to set the goalie standards, so kids can have their sieves and others can have their goalies being somewhat consistent.

If you have switched starting goalies that much since season 1 that is your problem entirely. I have found, in multiple leagues, if you switch your starting goalie, its takes almost a full year before him and your defensive core start to know each others weaknesses, keep your starting goalie, throw away a season, and you will see that the story will change.

I lost my top 2 defensive pairing in season 3 to retirement and this season is now a complete wash and cant buy a win.

Just my two cents

For that last schedule my team was a bit freaky, in the games I played I won games 5-1, 10-3, 2-1, 6-1, and 2-1, it was honestly like riding a high and yet felt bad for some of these goals that were going in. Almost every shot went in those blow out wins.

I don't know why but I find the game loves to mess with you at times, I was struggling at the start of the season to buy a goal and now I'm tied for most goals in the league or, in some games I can't get a break or bounce to go my way and the other team just gets everything to go their way.

I did watch my rosters and waived a bunch of people before the sim.

I made a big trade and the computer sent down the wrong person.

I knew I was going to have to waive some people so I sent down a bunch of people before the sim and it still waived Zibinejed.

Instead of leaving him on my roster, they called up Howse who is terrible and I would never use, and waived Z.

Doesnt seem like much more I could have done.

I dont think players who you traded for should get wiaved on that sim.

Especially since the computer also called up some AHL players who have never played before. ****ing wierd

Issues

Ok guys there a couple issues going on so first thing first:

Nobody claim ZIBANEJAD. If you already claimed him the next period trade him to Calgary. I know this is part of roster management but before I did the sim last night the flames sent down 3 guys already. Then the computer called up more guys.

As well as I would like some input on the Couture situation. I believe he should stay on the sharks and he should trade back the picks. One of the main reasons is because he traded away Moulson for 7th round pick. to make space to match the offer. He hads enough money to match him. But since the sim period was 14 days. Everyone knows you only get 7 days to match. So when I did the sim it was too late. That is one reason. The other reason Is Calgary signed a bunch of players in the offseason and since EA is messed even though he didnt have enough money for all of them it still let him sign all of them putting him -7M in cap space. so reality is he didnt have enough money for couture.

LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU GUYS THINK. I HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT THIS SINCE THE FIRST OFFSEASON SIM.


Now for the final situation. The goalies do suck in this game. Like for instance Carolina beat me 5-1 in my season opener his goalie was standing on his head. Then I play him again and I win 8-5 his goalie was awful. Everyone does the goals that always go in whither its (back hand forhand), (shooting 5 hole), ( coming across the middle then go short side), or ( coming down a wing and sniping top shelf) fact is everyone should know how to stop these as well as prevent them. So anyways currently the skill level is on pro and the game style is on default. I can change the difficulty to all-star or superstar this will make our goalies alot better. but they will still let in the goals I stated above just not as much.




Ps, I work 4-130 am tonight. So I will do the sim when I get home

I completely agree with everything you said. As for goalies, well there is nothing we can do about that because its part of NHL 13....We should all be able to stop those shots and give less breakaways....It's just like in real NHL, if the opponent is getting 5+ breakaways every game, you can bet that the scoring will be really high as well! So play tighter D and your goalie will give up less goals.

P.S. I personally has no issues with how goalies are in this game....my games are usually low scoring because I try to play good D. Me and NJ played 2 games and both games were 2-1 because we both played really good defense.

I do think we should probably bump up the dificulty though. It's not so much about the goalies even, it's the fact that the AI defenders will often let a player get a step by him easily down low on the lower dificulties.
