Has anyone played through a full season with the Oilers? If so, around how far up do RNH, Hall and Eberle increase in their overalls? Eberle and RNH are incredible underrated in this game and I'm regretting choosing the Oil as my GM Connected team.

Is there anyway I can report those kind of players? Had to quit and take the loss because of that.
1 its not a glitch goal to shoot from high percentage areas over and over again if you keep giving them up.

2 ragging the puck is the worst thing in this game but good players adjust the CPU strategy to pressure the puck when it happens then go in and try to strip it themselves when the puck is vulnerable.

Yeah, it doesn't really feel as rewarding to score, because there's no real payoff for a well executed play most of the time. I don't want one timers to be automatic either, but I also don't want the goalie to stop one because he slid across the crease in a sitting position without pushing off of anything.

Which one of these scenarios would more likely result in a goal:
-Craig Adams lobbing a wrist shot on goal from outside the circles
-Sidney Crosby threading a tape to tape pass to James Neal, who's sitting off the post for a tap in on a 5 on 3

In NHL 13 the answer is the first one.

What the hell happened to the goalies? Me and my friend play GM connected together against the computer and it went from us being competitive on allstar to having to drop all the way down to rookie and pummel the other team 40-10 in shots just to score a few

They made the goalies have better rebound control and they are now better with their glove

In a drop-in game and someone is hacking with a lag switch, the game keeps rewinding

Nhl 13 is the greatest game ever made!!!

Alright, so I finally bought the game. WOW, THIS THING IS A ****ING WORK OF ART, JUST AMAZING!!!!!

They've finally made a hockey game. If you play good hockey, you score and you win. Finally, it's not a game where you shoot glitch shots from the blue line or any other predictable sure thing shots. You outplay the opponent, outshoot them, you win. I played my first 3 games last night, couldn't get enough so I got up at 6AM to get in a couple games before I went to work, won both of them too. 5-0 so far, 17GF, 3 GA, 3 SO.

What about that statement don't you understand. In the old games, you could outshoot someone online 30-9, out hit them 25-10, have the puck twice or even three times as long and lose 3-0. In this game, you outplay your opponent and take good shots like a real NHL player would, you score.

It's not that, it's the fact that other people will take penalties and the game will take ages because the clock runs down slower

Yep....I don't need 10 powerplays a game to win...I was fine with 1-3 and had no problem drawing calls if I felt I needed one...

Online people always take a bunch so now it'll be worse especially cause like said, people just mash poke check so every time my guy stumbles it'll be a PP. I thought the median was fine before....But nope people always have to complain about everything.

Year in and year out these stupid tuner updates ruin the game....they're never for what the game really needs just what whiny kids on the EA forums complain for..

except the best way to score in this game is to just throw the puck on net from absolutely everywhere and wait for the goalies to let in a weak 1. If you are making hockey plays then you aren't playing optimally

Yeah except nowhere in any of my statements does it say I take a lot of penalties...so I don't know why you keep bringing up that I can't play defense.

I don't want to play a game for 40 minutes cause the other guy can't do something other than hit RB all day..

I don't care about having 10 PP's a game..The median was fine before..They don't leave many options to play defense besides spamming RB...stick lift is awful and using the body doesn't work well either...pass block is damn near useless too. I use RB a lot but I don't take tripping calls. Games will take twice as long now online on HUT with the RB spammers.

You're missing the point. We are annoyed because when there is a PP the clock runs down slower, with more penalties the games are going to take ages to finish.

Thinking of moving all the NHL players across to their respective lockout teams, and doing a season in the Swiss, Czech and Finnish leagues

The best part about this game are that the goalies give up rebounds on good shots and don't just soak up everything like the games before. What's wrong with cycling and getting it to the open man or banging in rebounds? What hockey plays are you trying to make that don't work in this game? Lastly, my goalies aren't letting in weak goals. Fact is, I don't even give up a lot of shots because I'm usually crushing the **** of the puck carrier at and just after the blue line. That's one of the other things I really love about this game. It's a hitter's hitting game. If you are good at lining people up, you love that about this game.

***Seriously though, what are you people talking about with "hockey plays" that don't work?
Please don't tell me:
-Cross-crease
-One touch deke
-Ever so sligtly moving your right stick, letting go and ripping it for a sure goal
-Shots from just inside the blue line near the boards that go right past the goalie

Those are not hockey plays.

So i'm about to start a Fantasy Draft option in NHL 13,

I had a question before I start, will the draft have all players from across different leagues available or is it just the NHL, AHL.

The reason why I'm asking is because there is some great players in the overseas league with great potential that i would like to potentially draft or have other teams draft.
