What am I missing? Do you need to shield it all the time--or just keep the puck opposite your body?

It's pretty frustrating. Most of the games are fairly even, but a few of these guys have gotten awful good at exploiting what's a pretty obvious slider issue pretty quick.

Help? Anyone?
Mainly just need to keep your stick and body moving into open space, and try not to be too repetitive. Use A to protect puck, pull stick away from players, well timed dekes, and sometimes even holding LT and skating backwards can help

Has anyoen else noticed the mics on ps3 sounding very terrible and very quiet as compared to what they usually sound like?

I have it where it constantly fades in and out for everyone. So what I did was that my headset is used as a mic, I turned down the volume of almost everything in the game and hear people through my speakers... even though they sound very metallic.

Like most of you. I've been pretty active on NHL13, I got my Vet 3 last night and our team went on a MASSIVE win streak.

This year I'm running a defensive dman with insane speed and poke checking. I've been experimenting with wrist shots from the point instead of slappers and I've gotta say that they're much more effective for a few reasons:

The new momentum skating makes handling the puck at the blue line a massive liability. If someone poke checks you, blocks the shot, hits you, you miss the pass or you wiff on the one timer; it pretty much means that there is a breakaway or 2 on 1 going the other direction.

I would argue that the wrist shot is less risky because it has a shorter wind up (unless you can nail one timers on the reg), has better chance to make it on goal (in terms of being more accurate and being harder to block than a slapshot) and is much easier for your forwards tip-in.

One could argue an obvious drawback is that it isn't "as good" at creating rebounds as a slapper. For low level characters, this is a fact. However, once you breach the threshold of 83-85 power and accuracy, change your stick blade to be flat to keep your shots mid to low. You'll start seeing some quality rebounds flying into the slot.

A definite drawback is that you will not score as many goals. Most of your goals will come on the PP if you know how to creep in for the shot or if you can make someone miss at the blueline, dance around them and cheese goal it on the shortside which I've done a few times.

Overall, you're going to create more cycling and scoring chances for your team and be less of a liability from the point at the cost of scoring fewer goals. Basically, your goals and assists and +/- will look like Matt Carle's. I decided I can live with that, and so far it's been working.

I actually find wrist shots to create more rebounds when you shoot low and the goalie goes into the butterfly and pucks bounce off the pads. I've been using that more and more since about march of last year.. Also try to shoot towards the stick of another team mate standing in front of the net for deflections

Cool. I'm probably going to buy NHL tonight if I get to Gamestop in time. Even in NHL12 I started using the wrist shot more than my slapshot, unless I had a very clear, open shot. That's one adjustment I don't need to worry about. Now I just need to get a handle on pretty much everything else haha

So, I have the Flyers in a GM Connected league on another board, and I was offered:

Kulikov
Huberdeau
Weiss
2013 1st
2014 1st

for

Giroux
Gervais

I told him Giroux was off limits, but I'm almost tempted.

Thoughts?

I've been experimenting with my LW and in my opinion Sniper is the best forward type followed by Two-way Forward.

Ever since EA nerfed the cross-crease pass goal into oblivion, the sniper is the greatest threat to score goals from anywhere in the offensive zone. They put the puck on goal, force goalies to make great saves, create rebounds, score on breakaways, and pot the occasional cheese goal, which are really the only consistent ways to score in this game now.

Two-way can do almost everything the sniper can, but less consistently. My sniper currently averages about 1.6 goals a game, where as my two way scores about 1 a game.

Obviously by going sniper you're giving up many of the defensive capabilities of the two-way. However, this can be overcome by maxing out your pokecheck and throwing boosts on it and by having teammates who can compensate. On our club we run:

LW - Sniper
C - Two Way
RW - Sniper/Playmaker
LD - Defensive
RD - Two Way

We find that this combination of player types work well with each other and the strategy is very simple:

Make short passes, get the puck up to your snipers, find a seam in the offensive zone, fire the puck on goal, and crash for rebounds.

They need to fix the goalies slightly.

You can have a surefire goal that is about to go in and he does a swan dive across the crease to save it then a few mins later he'll let in a wrist shot from the point.
