You're right, I was actually thinking of 2k8, rather than 2k9.

Can any of you guys answer me this question:

What was the earliest NHL Game, where in GM or Franchise mode, computer controlled team's players gained XP and progressed, not just your own.

They've messed up quite a few things in rosters like:

- Draft pick ownership. I went to start a season as Columbus to see that they didn't have any of the 1st they traded for this past season.

- AHL rookies/players. No Justin Schultz.

- CHL rookies/players. No Tyler Biggs for Leaf fans.

- Overseas signings need to be updated, too.

Shows the great effort of EA... Games been out for months and still really outdated rosters.

Wow.

Playing along and all of a sudden 'disc is unreadable'. Take the game out, a slight hairline crack. This is ********, this is the SECOND time it's happened, so now I have 2 ****** discs that won't play this game.

I've had it.

I don't get how though, it never leaves my console. It baffles me because i've been careful with games and taking them out since I got my xbox years ago, now all of a sudden i've had 2 break in the last 2 months.

The cracks on both discs are just tiny tiny hairline cracks that must have eventually worked itsway out.

Its the xbox, send it in a for repairs if you feel like you can go 2-4 weeks without it.

Have you been moving the console while the disk is still in it (like bringing it to another room or whatever)?

Why are you complaining over this game, it's clearly the best in the NHL-series?

I don't even know how worth it is to even send in, it's a first generation xbox and I want to get a new one anyways when the price drops around christmas.

Na, it stays in my living room. After these shenanigans I laid it horizontal instead of keeping it vertical (let's hope it doesn't eat up anymore games)

Thanks guys

Anybody have any tips for passing?

I'm not bad at this game or any previous EA NHL games. Last year my record was something like 135-60-15 or something like that. This year I'm actualy doing pretty good still, EASHL wise and Online Versus (although I do play a lot less).

The only thing I can't get down is my passing. Any type of passing. Stretch passes bounce off the sticks. Short passes completely miss the player. Two on ones usually miss. I used to have passing down really well in when to hold down RT and when to just tap it. Now I can't for the life of me.

Anything with pass assist in this year's game drives me bonkers, especially after you look at the replay and see that you were aimed exactly where you wanted it to go, but for some reason, it went 10 feet to the right

Not to mention pass assist deciding, no, you didn't want to pass to the open guy in the slot, you wanted to make a 50-foot, cross-ice, saucer pass through 3 defenders to a guy who is behind the blue line
