Portland Winterhawks coach is a joke

Had 2 assists in a game, was playing good, then took a penalty and never saw the ice for rest of 2nd or the 3rd period again

You sure you didn't get booted from the game?

Started a new Live the Life after the patch.

RW 5'9 180lb sniper. Play like Gabby.... kinda just ninjaing around waiting to pick a pass and bolt it. All speed and accuracy right now.

Superstar Difficulty / Normal Simulation

Got drafted 22nd overall to the Detroit Red Wings.
Was put on the 1st line in preseson with Zetterburg and Datsyuk. I sim the first period and some times the second but always play the third and more times then not the second period. Every game I had atleast 1 goal or one assist. Had A overall for team play position and stats. Right before the last game of preseason they send me down with no warning. No big deal. Red Wings are stacked and my over all was **** in comparison.

Play 8 games in the AHL on the first line, PP, PK, and win all games just killing it. Getting on average 2.3 points per game. Get a message from the gm saying I am getting the call up to big league. Next game comes I am still in the AHL and now on the third ****ing line with no PP or PK time and dead last in the shoot out instead of first. I can't with this mode anymore. I am now supposed to play 9 more games to get onto the second line and 9 more to get onto the third and 9 more to get into the nhl? GIVE ME BREAK.

thats really weird. I made team out of camp and the worst they did to me was take me off Koivu and Pominvilles line and put me with heatley and Cooke for 4 games when I had to end early to go out.

Just did a test run to see how it works. I played just the third period and was on the first line for the preseason and the first game of the year. I may start a new one and do write ups

I keep having these line demotions too. However I am a backup goalie and therefore am not on any line, so they are inconsequential.

I'm beginning to suspect the "you're coming back from a bar and your coach is in the lobby" scenario has no correct choice. I've tried all choices and they've all ended poorly.

Also, beware of putting your hand through that chain link fence.

It is impossible to stick in the NHL in Live the Life. 25 pts in six pre-season games and I get sent back to juniors for the second time? I am a 92 overall getting sent back to juniors.

Did you get the message saying your chance of making the opening night roster is GUARANTEED?

First overall to the Avalanche, I stuck with the team, but then in the Stanley Cup.

Duchene drops to injury, statsny Drops.

My new centre is PA, O'rielly and mackinnon stayed on the 3rd line, is this normal?

In 13 they just moved the C(or whatever position was injured) up a line didn't they?

My goalie played 3 preseason games manually and was assured he was getting sent back down no matter what; no chance of making the roster. So I simmed the last 3 preseason games and made the roster anyways. Then I stuck around until March when, right after having my number of starts increased, they decided to shoot me back down to Juniors out of the blue.

I had a goalie Live the Life, was drafted by Buffalo, ticked them off, got traded to Dallas, then preseason comes and management tells me I have to prove myself

But guess what, never got a start in preseason but still made the team

I've played every period/game.

As a grinder, I started on the first line in the Q and tore it up with 79 goals, 44 assists and 728 hits!

Drafted 1st by Dallas.

On the third line I got 5 goals and 4 assists in 6 pre-season games.

Started the season on the third line with 2 goals in my first reg NHL game.

Just got injured in a game for 5 days. Soon as the game ends i get called up to the NHL. i cant play the first two games because I am injured and they SEND ME THE **** BACK DOWN AND I HAVE TO START ALL OVER FOR THE THIRD ****ING TIME. How is this mode so riddled with bugs? Did they even test it once?

I refuse to believe anyone has spent more than ten minutes testing it.

Or reading the comments from those that have played it. It's not different problems from year to year where they fix one thing, only to break another; it's the same damn problems every year. This year they put a fresh coat of paint on it with the interviews, but it's just masking the exact same problems. I've given up hope for this generation. Maybe they will do better on next-gen. For whatever reason, I doubt it.

After 8 games (4 goals, 1 assist) on the 3rd line, I was moved up to the 2nd line.

I rewarded the coach with 2 goals and 2 assists the first game on it.

This mode is awesome! I'm really enjoying it and have no problems/complaints with it!

New update:

7 goals, 8 assists in 15 games and I just got moved up to the 1st line! My player rating is the lowest in the lineup at 72 too!

Got drafted in the mid-1st round by the Flyers. Simmed one game in the preseason and played the rest while being the highest scoring player on the team as a 3rd pairing Defensemen. Got sent down to the OHL for more seasoning.

Next offseason, exact same story and no matter what I did, I got sent back down to the OHL.

Decided to just start over and I got drafted by the Wild (took a few times of loading the game and re-loading it to get drafted by the team I wanted to get drafted by ) and I played all but one preseason game and made the team on the third pairing as a 17 year old.

Now the fun begins

Getting drafted 1st overall as a goalie is going to put you on a bad team, which means you're gonna be screwed. What I didn't expect was for Calgary to trade Cammaleri, Giordano, and Baertsch (leading scorer) for draft picks two months into the season. My team is getting about 15 shots per game and allowed 30+, I can't wait to get on a different team

Only started 1 preseason game in 2nd season, but getting the start for the season opener against the Blues

Hoping to become the #1 goalie in Dallas
