The safest way is to put them on a national team that has not reached the roster limit.

This is why I loved 2k, you could edit any player during franchise mode, I would always edit prospects.

All 2k games do this, even mlb and NBA.

So how do you tie up a player's stick in front of the net?

Or is that just one of the many things the computer can do that the player can't?

It's true that it's difficult to keep up with them all (especially if you start editing prospects who are 2-3 years away from their draft year), but even then, you could just pump up the stats/potential of some random kid and at least make a couple actual blue chip prospects for each draft year....Rather than getting a kid who's 19yo, not NHL ready, and has B- potential in the top 5 of the draft.

Guess who played Tyson Barrie's copy of NHL 13, this guy.

And Vermette is 83 overall, just to confirm.


And Prospects in the 2013 draft are appropriate. Example: Mackinnon is the best player, all potential first rounders are first rounders (Shinkaruk, Monahan, Lazar, Morrissey)

The whole legends players thing is so tacky to me.

I'd sooner there be legend teams like they had with the Canadiens a few years back.

has anyone else noticed that when you skate backwards over the opposing blue line, you never get called for an offside, even though you were obviously over the line before the puck was?

It's what you call unsastainable profit of short term gains, long term losses. Lol, proof is in this thread with upset customers announcing they won't buy the game or something among those lines.

Anyway, like I said- the loss is for those who are 'into' this kind of stuff, because the truth is - it's a VERY shallow feature that is up there with informercials on TV for the uneducated.

It's because you can do that in the real NHL. As long as you have control of the puck, and you are the first one over the blueline.

A player can't make himself offside. Not gonna bring out the rule book or anything, but I'm 99% that's the case. Rick Nash patented that ****

How is EA going to lose money long term because of legends? This thread is no way representative of demographic that purchases the EA NHL series. Most NHL gamers are casual fans who like things like legends.

I'm pretty sure you can make yourself go offside. The puck always has to go in first, even if you're the one controlling it.

Wrong. a player with possession of the puck may precede the puck into the zone provided he (or she, wickenheiser) has control of the puck and is first into the zone.

hold the right thumb stick East; at the puck drop, move it clockwise to South. That should help (I sucked at it too).

I find mixing it up helps. I try some pulling straight back (starting backand seems to work better than forehand), starting backhand and rotating up and away will do a stick lift then pull back, starting forehand and rotating up and away will tie up the guy and kick the puck back, and pushing left stick forward right stick back sometimes works just to tie up the guy and hope your wingers grab the loose puck. I'd say I'm hitting about 50%, if one method isn't working just try switching it up, I find the same thing isn't necessarily as successful game to game.
