gl to you too ... i just view what i stated as detriment ... keep away cycles for lengthy periods with no approach to net ... taking puck behind net every time you get it in your end ... idk ... its just my opinion ... dont like the style

If the league is still in need of replacment GMs once playoffs are done, I'd like to throw my hat into the ring. I'd be able to play games after 6 PM weekdays except once a week when I have men's league, which I have the schedule for so I could warn everyone ahead of time. I've only played Hockey Ultimate Team thus far and the last NHL game I had before this was 2008, so I might need some help figuring things out. Gamertag: ki11joy 14

I'm sorry but cycling is a fundamental of the game. Learn to stop it or get over it. I cycle in every single one of my games waiting for an opening, it's called good hockey.

I've been really active on uber competitive games, fighting in particular, and there is a trend in those communities I'd like to not happen here. That trend is complaining about something you can't stop, hoping to get it banned, saying it's broken. I played Street Fighter 4, and people were literally crying about Ken being broken because of his stupid flaming Shoryuken. People would flame for hours if you used it more than once a round, but the real problem was not LEARNING how to play the game correctly. If there is a tactic that can be stopped, the solution isn't to ban the tactic, it's to learn to stop it yourself. The solution in Street Fighter was to effin' BLOCK, and within a month, the move was rendered useless and laughable.

There is far too much hand holding anymore, and people ban things they can't do anything about. Anything short of a glitch that is literally unstoppable should not be banned.

And the whole gentlemanly thing is a bogus argument. It's gentlemanly to pull goalies to get a score back if a game disconnects, it's not gentlemanly to stop performing a tactic people can't stop. It literally kills the competitiveness of a game.

Here are some fun solutions to stop common tactics in NHL:

People poke check too much: pull the puck away from them, protect it with A, or deke with LB.
People do a quick short side deke goal with a high success rate: push them to the outside with your d while poke checking.
People cycling: they ALWAYS go the same way, get in their way! Block the lane. Also cycling is a good thing because it means you're preventing them from a good scoring opportunity.

Being upset about cycling I'd expect on Gamefaqs, not a hockey forum. It's a fundamental of the sport.

1. It's going to be a lot harder to find new people who are willing to take bottom teams than good teams.*
2. Some GMs have made a ton of trades with their team so they should have to stick with their decisions and not just get to have a new team.
3. People might fight over which playoff teams they want/some people might not be allowed to switch teams (which might anger some people and depending on their attitude they might rage quit the league).


*but then again, why should a newbie have first dibs on a very good team over someone who has been active since the start.


An obvious solution for now would be to allow any non-playoff teams to TEMPORARILY take over playoff teams, then after the playoffs we can decide if we allow permanent switches.
I think these are some valid concerns--but to some extent, they can be addressed. For one thing, we could pretty easily come up with a way to figure out who gets first choice--either based on teams that finished closer to the playoffs, or further from the playoffs (not sure which is better), or based on the other people joined the league in.

It is true that the player would be abandoning a team after they made some deals, but they would be acquiring a team that also had deals made--some good, some bad, etc. After all, the team assignments were first come, first served at the start, right? Essentially, this approach would simply extend that in to the new league).

It might actually liven up the trading market in the offseason, if we inject some new blood.

All that said, it does seem a bit odd to let players who didn't make the playoffs get in on another team--but it seems worse to let new people do so. Maybe we just need to have guest players do the games and sort if out in the offseason.

Nobody is upset about cycling, most of the complaints are regarding the fine line between cycling the puck and intentionally ragging it.

I'm advancing now...

If you are matched up against a Computer team, please don't play any games yet. I'm going out to lunch and will be coming up with a course of action soon. I have I think 4 people looking to jump on teams at the moment.

PIT Vs. PHI
WSH Vs. BOS
MON Vs. NJ
NYR Vs. FLA

VAN Vs. LA
CHI Vs. SJ
DAL Vs. STL
EDM Vs. NSH
