I usually turn off waivers because the AI is so ridiculously stupid.

If you accept every trade offer that comes your way from the AI, they get shockingly good in your favour. The only problem is you usually give up your top players before you get to a point where you're winning every trade

I can usually get around that by manipulating my trade block so I don't accept offers for most players. Sometimes it doesn't work. It's supposedly improved in that you can specify age, style, etc. for NHL 13... we'll see.

There's actually a really cheap way to exploit that. Once the season starts and salary cap applies, just offer a whole bunch of salary for picks. As long as you way overpay and they can't accept for cap reasons, you can just keep switching which pick you try to trade for (or 2 picks, or whatever) and they like you more and more and more despite not being able to complete the deal. Very cheat-y way to quickly amass a ton of GM points and build great reputation with all 29 teams (but a great way to unlock the legend GM plaque for BaP skater boosts).

You guys tell me if I was ripped off.

So Minnesota was lacking scoring talent, no players even in the top 15 for goals. Crosby's leading the league, and Ekman-Larsson isn't producing.

So I offer Pittsburgh Ek-La, Marchand, and a 2023 first round. Ek and Marchand have slightly above half trade bars. Pittsburgh pretty much tells me to go **** myself. I add Wilson, (slightly above half), replace my 1st with 2nd and 3rd. Same result. I add back my 1st. Can you guess what Pittsburgh said? So I keep adding 2nd rounds and he only accepts when I give him Ekman-Larsson, Marchand, Wilson, TWO 1st rounds in exchange for Crosby and a 3rd.

My GM rep with Pittsburgh was great before this.

Edit: 2 firsts, I went back and checked the transactions.

Wouldn't that be a total of 2 1/4-1/2 bars FOR 1 bar and a little bit? Holy over payments Batman. I could get 3 1st rounders for Crosby. I hope they bought you dinner and a drink, because you got seriously screwed.

I was playing on "advanced" difficulty. When you start your GM mode there's three difficulty levels, determines what the CPU will take and how many points it takes to upgrade staff.

I did get seriously screwed. I'm glad I saved right before.

@TSNBobMcKenzie OTT trades 2015 #2 pick Medvenov, prospects McDowell & Chubisov, and 2017 4th round pick to LAK for 2017 4th round and 7th round picks. #Unbelievable #Insanity #Facepalm

This has to be one of the worst trades, if not the worst, I've ever seen the AI do ...

Resignings


All- Star defenseman Erik Johnson was one of the biggest signings in an 8 year deal with an annual cap hit of 6.710m

Many big names of the Colorado Avalanche were up for contract renewals this year including captain Matt Duchene and Erik Johnson who both inked long-term deals with the club. Calder candidate James Reimer also received a new deal that will see him here through the 2015-2016 season. Most of the team is returning except for a few pieces including former captain Adam Foote who was released Tuesday. Other important players signed were Ryan O'Reilly, Wojtek Wolski, and John-Michael Liles.

Two things the Colorado Avalanche are going to be looking for in free agency this year: A 5th/6th defenseman and a 1st/2nd line Right Winger. On defense the Avalanche were ranked 23rd in goals against which GM Dan Murray was not pleased about saying that,"we can start winning games if we can keep the puck out of the net. I reviewed videos during the season and it showed that our defense was lacking as James was getting too many shots against him." The other problem this year will be finding a new winger alongside Matt Duchene as Milan Hejduk is reaching the end of his 2-year contract and will likely have to play hard to keep his top line spot. An option for this is Shane Doan, the captain of the Phoenix Coyotes and impending free agent. Though an older player in free agency at 35, Doan comes with much experience and is coming off a 71 point season. Another option is Penguins restricted free agent James Neal who is also coming off a 70+ point season but he is only 24-years old. GM Murray doesn't seem to be the conservative type so you could see him making an offer sheet soon.

If they do get one of those two it seems the Avalanche would have little money to spend on a defenseman so they might have to look within. One name that comes to mind is Ryan Wilson. The 25 year old defenseman is coming off a good year in the AHL tallying 37 points. Though descent offensively his two-way game is more focused defensively which would be good with Kyle Quincey in the third line who plays more offensively-minded.

All we can do now is wait and see what the management in Colorado decides to do.

Free Agent Frenzy

Surprise signing of Dustin Penner was the highlight of Avalanche Free Agency

The big name signing of Dustin Penner was the highlight of the summer for the Avalanche and one that many didn't expect. The 29-year-old is coming into the lineup after a 70-point season, including 35 goals, with the Los Angeles Kings and his expectations won't be lowered on the Avalanche according to General Manager Dan Murray, "We decided to sign Dustin because we saw he could score which is something we couldn't do last year." The plans to sign Shane Doan or James Neal fell through as Neal signed with Pittsburgh and Doan asked for more than the Avalanche could afford. We then asked if he would be placed on the first line alongside Matt Duchene and Wojtek Wolski, Murray responded, "We will decide line-ups after training camp and the preseason is over. Right now I can't really say where he'll fit in. Last year he played on a line with All-stars Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown so we can't tell right now if he'll produce as he did before."

Not expected after the Penner signing, the Avalanche afforded to sign Jason Garrison, a gritty defenseman from the Florida Panthers. He recently completed his second full season with the club racking 27 points. He will have to fight for his spot on the roster with fellow Avalanche defenseman, Ryan Wilson and Ryan O'Bryne.

Those are not the only players fighting for a spot on the roster, T.J. Galiardi, Ryan Stoa, and David Jones were all told they'd be watched closely during training camp and the preseason. Galiardi didn't have his best year only amassing 13 points in 69 games playing third line minutes. Ryan Stoa had a good season in the AHL tallying 68 points in 80 games, but question is, can he play the same at the NHL level? Lastly, Jones decreased from his 2010-11 38 points to last seasons 25 points playing the same minutes as Galiardi. Even Milan Hejduk might lose a spot on the roster if he doesn't produce.

All we can do now is wait for the preseason and see how things pan out. The list of players signed in free agency is listed below:


Free Agents signed:
Dustin Penner: 2.500M, 2 years
Jason Garrison: 0.800M, 2 years
David Desharnais: 0.695M, 1 year
John Westin: 0.700M, 3 years (ELC)
Joey Leach: 0.500M, 3 years (ELC)
Tyler Pitlick: 0.635 M, 3 years (ELC)


Draftees signed:
Alex Galchenyuk: 0.760M, 3 years (ELC)
Tommy Stipancik: 0.550M, 3 years (ELC)
Olivier Dallaire: 0.550M, 3 years (ELC)

Thanks! and the only people I'm really excited about are my 2011 1st round pick Kip Coliacava (D-man) who got 41 points in his first year in the AHL! Also John Westin is 72 Overall with C, A-, B- as a two-way forward at 20 years old. Could make the team in two or three years.

Not going to do a writeup about it but apparently James Neal was still on the market at the end of the preseason and he only wanted 3.060 for 1 year! I almost pissed myself when I saw this and I cranked it u to 3.500 and I got him ony losing a 2nd round pick.

I think that counts as a win

I've seen a few prospects in the NHL 12 dynasty mode who were mistakenly listed at 5'2 or 5'1 ( Yakupov, Latta for example). But today I saw (and signed) a Finnish center named Teemu Huhtala, who is a real player listed at 6' 190 in real life. He caught my eye while scanning through free agency in GM mode, because the game has him listed at 4'7 122! He has B- potential and every single attribute 73 except his poise is set at 68. I'd never seen anyone so small on the game so I picked him up as a 4th line center for my AHL team for the heck of it.

Has anyone else come across someone listed that small on NHL 12? Until today I'd never seen anyone listed under 5'0 on there before.

I think that counts as a win
Holy hell. You gonna put him with Brown and Kopitar or roll 2 beast lines?

He caught my eye while scanning through free agency in GM mode, because the game has him listed at 4'7 122! He has B- potential and every single attribute 73 except his poise is set at 68. I'd never seen anyone so small on the game so I picked him up as a 4th line center for my AHL team for the heck of it.

Has anyone else come across someone listed that small on NHL 12? Until today I'd never seen anyone listed under 5'0 on there before.
Yeah the height/weight is messed up sometimes. I mostly just ignore it, even for the real guys.

Preseason, Lineups and James Neal


The new winger for the avalanche was decided to play alongside Duchene and Hejduk

An amazing surprise coming just 2 days before the beginning of the season as James Neal has signed with the Avalanche for 1 year. The Avalanche sent the offer sheet to Neal last week which he says was "a surprise" as he thought by then he would have gotten an offer from Pittsburgh, but he did accept the offer sheet. Later Pittsburgh called saying they could not afford James Neal and had decided not to match and reportedly received the Avs 2013 2nd Round Pick to compensate for it. Neal was excited when he flew in from Pittsburgh and saw the crowd of fans there to greet him at the airport saying that, "they really made me feel at home." General Dan Murray was asked how he felt Neal would help the team and he responded, "He's one of the best, the way he plays, it's hard to find talent like that. I predict he is going to make a huge impact on a team that has so much winger depth as is."

The Preseason didn't go as well as planned for Colorado going 1-2-1 and only winning when they had the full roster in but GM Murray is "not worried about" as it does not count towards the season. He also thinks it is because we have such a young goalie in net in Calvin Pickard playing the first three games. "It's good in a way that he was having trouble," said Murray, "it should us that he needs a little seasoning before coming up to the big leagues." It was rumored that Calvin could have challenged Reimer for starter after an astounding year on his CHL team the Seattle Thunderbirds posting a .937 Save Percentage and a 1.98 GAA leading all goaltenders in both. But after seeing his preseason performance it looks like one more year in Seattle for Pickard while Sabourin will be backing Reimer. The Line-ups for the 2012-2013 season are listed below.

Okay so rate my trades guys:
Trade 1
ANA - Lydman(82), Cogliano(82) for OTT - Foligno(82), 3rd

Trade 2
ANA - Visnovsky(87), 2nd for STL - Nikitin(82), Cole(78, B potential), 3rd

Trade 3
ANA - Beleskey(79), Sexton(75) for DAL - Grossmann(82)

Lineups go from
RPG
Cogliano-Bonino-Selanna
DSP-Pelley-Palmieri
McMillan-Blake-Perros

Beauch-Vis
Fowler-Sbisa
Lydman-Brookbank

TO
RPG
Foligno-Bonino-Selanne
DSP Pelley-Palmieri
McMillan-Blake-Perros

Beauch-Nikitin
Fowler-Sbisa
Grossmann-Cole (Koivu out with injury)

I now have one 1st, and 4 3rds, hopefully ill be able to package some into a second somehow. With the edited player ratings, i should be able to snag a couple of good potential players.

With Schultz and Vatanen waiting in the wings, and looking at NHL time in a couple years, my defense wont suffer for long and I feel i made my teem deeper and younger. By the time players like Etem, Rakell, Holland, DSP, Palmieri, Schultz, Vatanen and Karlsson meet their potential guys like Ryan, Getzlaf, Perry, should be in their early 30s. it looks like Ill be contending in a couple years.
