Did you get the Stanley Cup edition with the Season Pass and then donate your life savings to EA? That's how you get the refs to call penalties.

Haha, in NHL 12 there was too many goalie interference calls, now in NHL 13 there is not enough. how hard is it to find a balance?

I liked the fact that there were more penalties in general in NHL 12. My buddy and I would often have a race in club to see who could get the first game misconduct, when we got bored of playing actual hockey. At least we kept it to our own club for the sake of others.

Anyone ever draft a rookie who played right away? 2016 draft is up in my franchise mode anyone know any players in that draft that if u draft them they are good enough to play right away?

PS after 5-6 months of this game it still sucks..........feels like a 75% finished game

I still think trading is completely unrealistic in this game...

in the offseason I offered Mattias Tedenby who has potential upside of 3.5 green stars and 2 firsts to St. Louis for Tarasenko. Then 3 weeks into the season, I go back to the trade screen and suddenly Tarasenko is red, apparently being shopped and I get him for Tedenby and a 3rd.

Its a complete joke if the player isn't being offered meanwhile if you offer a crap player with good trade value and a piece that they actually want that has no value, more often then not, the trade happens. Just mind boggling.

So I guess there is no way to make the offline Be A GM simulating times faster on PS3?

I bought the game when it came out and I was so disappointed. Haven't played much..

****. I love (re)building teams.

That's because AI teams try to gauge whether they're contending for the Cup, the playoffs or going for the tank but they make the decision too quickly into the season. It's neat that teams doing poorly will try to sell off their expiring contracts and stock on young players but if they're constantly flip-flopping between tanking and competing then it leads to some horrible trades. It's like every GM was Fergunson.

I took Pronger and Savard, and Thomas and put them on the legends team. Is there anyone else sitting out the season or on LTIR I can take off their teams for when I do my Be A GM?

That's actually a really good idea.

I always wonder how Boston would play out differently, because for the first few years they are right up against the cap and unable to make many major moves.

I mean, I know in real life that they do have to pay those salaries and such but for the sake of a game, i'd rather see what would happen if they weren't in my sim

So I drafted a Tough guy in the 6th round of the 2017 draft and went into the contracts screen to see how my draft turned out. Turns out said tough guy is worst player I've ever seen in the game has .5 star in every category except physical where he has 3.5. He is a 38 OVR with 1 red star potential hahaha. I almost want to sign him and develop him just to see what happens. Btw what is up with the absurd amount of defensemen with 99 Slap shot power? There are a ton of them out of the first 3 rounds of the last 2 drafts. Its insane the amount of dmen with 5 star shots currently in my game. Happen to anyone else?

NEED YOUR HELP!!!

My old system crashed. Got a new system today with the same NHL 13 disk i have always used.

For some reason the same online code (to download rosters, etc.) is not valid. This doesnt seem right, I bought this game, i am assuming i dont have to buy another one because i got a new ps3?

Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

thanks

Hey I was thinking about starting up a BAGM mode and doing a fantasy draft. Has anyone had experience with the fantasy draft? Is the experience fun, or does the AI just draft old guys that retire after a season or two and are left with nobody? I've done plenty of GM modes with regular rosters and kind of wanted to switch it up a bit.

After the draft you can sign several 4 star potential guys, Jagr, Selanne, Alfredsson, sometimes Lidstrom, Gonchar, etc.

It means they'll be injured until the end of that sim period, maybe the next sim period.
