For those doing coach mode/CPU vs CPU, what are your gameplay settings?

Typically I look for (wings interchangeable):

SNP - PLY - PFW

PLY - TFW - PFW
PLY - GRN - GRN/TFW
TWF - TGH

TWD - TWD
OFD - TWD
TWD - DFD
DFD

From my experience having a playmaker in the 3rd and 4th lines really helps with depth scoring. Although for best results it's better to have a PLY who also excels defensively (a guy like Wellwood is enough).

AVALANCHE SNAP BLUE JACKETS' WIN STREAK
December 20, 2012

The Blue Jackets (14-16-0) walked into the Pepsi Center last night brimming with confidence, looking to gain their fifth consecutive victory. The Colorado Avalanche (14-14-2) had other plans, limiting the Blue Jackets to just 18 shots en route to a 3-0 shutout victory. The streak began with back-to-back 6-2 blowout victories over Phoenix and Calgary followed by a pair of 1-goal games against Phoenix and Winnipeg.

Center Brandon Dubinsky left the game with an apparent foot injury late in the 2nd period after blocking an Erik Johnson point shot. Blue Jackets representatives have told us that he's scheduled to have an X-ray and MRI done today.

"We didn't come ready to play," said head coach Todd Richards after the defeat. "I think we came into the rink today with the attitude that we were going to win because we had been hot recently. We still need to bring our lunch pails and work boots to the ice even when things are going well for us."

The Blue Jackets have a tough schedule this weekend, first hosting the back-to-back Presidents Trophy winning Vancouver Canucks Friday night then making the trip north to challenge perennial powerhouse Detroit on Saturday.

The Pittsburgh Penguins were at it again today, landing yet another star veteran in Shane Doan from the Phoenix Coyotes. The Coyotes get prospect Adam Payerl as well as Pittsburgh's 2nd and 3rd round picks in return for their captain.

Shane Doan signed a 4-year, $21.2M contract extension with Phoenix in September under the assumption that the team would be purchased by Greg Jamison. Unfortunately, Jamison was not able to obtain the funding, even with a 16-year, $324M lease agreement from the city of Glendale to operate the arena. Doan reportedly asked to be traded following the news and GM Don Maloney facilitated the trade to match Doan up with superstar Sidney Crosby, despite the egregiously low return for a player of Doan's calibre.

Hmm...

SNP-PLY-PWF
TWF-PLY-SNP (Nice to have a good TWF on the 2nd line)
TWF-GRN-PLY
GRN-TWF-TWF
TWF-TGH

OFD-TWD
DFD-TWD
DFD-TWD
TWD

Goalies don't matter, had a good drafted STD once though, that was fun.

PWF are fun to play with, but they never perform all too well if I'm simming, so I take that into account. Good to not have 2 of the same type of defenseman on a line, unless they are both TWD

For all these, the wings and ld/rd could be reversed, don't really care. I put less care into player types though than I do into their actual ratings, I'll put another with ratings I care about

Shooting - Puck Skills - Wildcard(Someone on the more physical side is nice)
Physical(w/ good offense) - Puck Skills - Shooting/Wildcard
Balanced - Faceoffs - Defense
Physical - Faceoffs/Defense - Defense
Physical - Balanced(nice to have a solid all-round extra to fill in with injuries)

I don't actually pay too much attention to individual stats with defenseman, as I'm not too familiar with them, it is nice though to have guys who have different specialities in each stat category, diversity is always nice.

Goalies I'll take mostly anyone with higher of the Reflexes category.




I might be changing my opinion on the first line soon though, in my most recent game, I drafted some pure sniper 5th overall on the oilers, after a few years of developing him my first line looked like:

Draftee(SNP, 85 OVR, Shooting), RNH(PLY,95,Puck Skills), Eberle(SNP,88, Shooting)

This line has been doing great, I used to have Hall at 85 and he had more skating and physical speciality, and when Hall was there RNH got about 70 points, Eberle 65, and Hall 45ish each year. This one year with draftee up there points have been Draftee with 77, Eberle with 142, RNH with 186. Not even kidding you, yeah I know lots of it is due to RNH being 95 and having a good talented top line in general, but the difference between Hall and new draftee is just insane. If this trend continues 1 more year, I'm definitely moving my top line preference to SNP-PLY-SNP.

Quick recap of my St Louis Blues season:

We finished 41-31-10, eight place in the West. We had trouble scoring all season, so I acquired Patrick Marleau at the trade deadline. He played well, but we lost in the first round to Nashville in six games. Our leading scorer for the season was Jaden Schwartz, with 76 points. I don't mind though, they ended up winning the Cup. On a bright note, the Peoria Rivermen, my AHL team, won the Calder Cup! Since I wanted cap space, at the draft I made two trades:

Trade #1

Patrick Marleau


2017 1st Round Pick


Trade #2

Patrick Berglund
TJ Oshie


Michael Grabner
2017 2nd Round Pick

I got rid of Marleau so that I could resign Schwartz and Pietrangelo easily. Plus, next year I'll have to sign Tolpeko (86 1st line forward) and the year after that, I'll have to sign Sam Reinhart and Jorgen Backlund, who should be either 2nd liners or 1st liners. For the other trade, Oshie was also a cap dump (not impressing me) and I moved Berglund so that I could play Reinhart in the top six this year. He is 81 overall with very good offense. I also needed a good goal scorer, and Grabner fit the bill perfectly.

In terms of players progression, I was impressed. Jake Allen is now an 87 overall elite goalie, and my AHL starter jumped to 81 overall. I might have to trade Halak soon. Sam Reinhart jumped from 75 to 81, while Jorgen Backlund jumped from 74 to 82. Vitali Tolpeko went from 85 to 86 and Jaden Schwartz went from 85 to 87.

I'll post my lineup for 2016-17 either later tonight or tomorrow.

I like to play a more defensive game, relying more on defense and playing off of the other teams mistakes

Ducks have lost 3 straight against edm,van and fla. but maintain a respectable record without their top center in getzlaf. lydman has sparked interest from many teams, most offering a 2nd+3rd. he may move with the addition of adam pardy via waivers and emergence of mat clark in the ahl. The Ducks are 14-9-2, 6th in the West.

Injuries:
Ryan Getzlaf (1 month)

Lineup
Ryan-Cogliano-Perry
McMillan-Koivu-Selanne
Winnik-Holland-Palmieri
Beleskey-Bonino-Smith-Pelly
Maroon

Fowler-Sbisa
Beauchemin-Allen
Souray-Clark
Guenin
Pardy

Hiller
B.Johnson

Leading Scorers
Perry 25GP-11-7-18
Getzlaf 18GP-7-9-16
Ryan 19GP-5-8-13

Any suggestions on moves i could make to strengthen this club. I think a youth overhaul is needed and i need some depth. Want to keep it realistic but i am really hurting in depth and goal scoring.


UPDATE:

Trade Lydman and Anaheim 5th to Washington for Col 2nd and Was 3rd. Colorado is currently in last in the NHL so its a very good deal for our club!

Great joke with T. Gillies. You really had me believing that you actually put him on your roster there for a minute

Gillies was the best available via free agency. I wanted to go with Rinaldo but it's ****ing impossible to make trades in this game.

CLB is pretty good in NHL 13 because they have depth, and EA is in love with Mason, who always turns out to be an elite goalie...

2016-17 Lineup

Schwartz (86, A) - Tolpeko (86, A) - Grabner (84)
Leblanc (83) - S. Reinhart (81) - Stewart (83)
Backlund (82) - Sonne (80) - Shattock (81)
Nigro (79) - Goc (78) - Mcrae (79)

Shattenkirk (86) - Pietrangelo (89, C)
Cole (86) - Sbisa (83)
Larsen (83) - Holzer (78)

Allen (87)
Halak (85)

Jorgen Backlund and Sam Reinhart are rookies, and I signed Philip Larsen as a free agent. I traded Jared Boll and a 2019 2nd round pick to Montreal for Marcel Goc because I needed a centerman with good faceoffs. All my centermen suck at faceoffs... besides Goc, Tolpeko is the best with 68 and he is supposed to be a winger.

Senators Top Canadiens 3-0 in Season Opener


Chris Phillips started the scoring with a breakaway in the 1st period.

The Ottawa Senators got their season started on the right foot, as they beat the rival Montreal Canadiens 3-0. Chris Phillips was the surprise sniper in the 1st period, as he got a breakaway and stuffed it top shelf on Habs keeper Carey Price.

Price stopped 25 of 27 shots he faced, while Sens stopper Craig Anderson turned in an impressive 23 save shutout.

Phillips, Guillaume Latendresse, and Jakob Silfverberg found the net for Ottawa.

In the 1st, the Senators came out firing, as they recorded the first 5 shots of the period. Montreal nearly got the games first goal after Max Pacioretty whiffed on a shot, and the puck slid to an open Rene Bourque, but Anderson shut the door. With time winding down in the period, the Canadiens were caught on a bad line change. The puck rolled to an open lane, where Phillips swiped the puck and never looked back, going backhand-forehand on Price for the game's opening goal.

The 2nd frame didn't see as much action, but Latendresse got his first goal in an Ottawa Senators jersey. After Kyle Turris and Tomas Plekanec jostled for the puck and nobody could find it, Latendresse reached into the pile and got the puck. He waited, then wired a wrist shot on net. It bounced off Habs captain Brian Gionta and over Price's shoulder to give the Sens a 2-0 advantage.

The 3rd period saw Montreal take over in puck possesion, as they got 9 shots on net, all stopped by Anderson. The Sens failed to capitalize on a late powerplay after Habs forward Pacioretty took his second penalty of the game. With under a minute left, the Canadiens pulled Price for the extra attacker. Once again, a bad line change led to the puck rolling to an open lane. This time, offseason acquisition Marc Methot took the puck and rushed it up ice. He then sauced a perfect feed to rookie winger Jakob Silfverberg, who slapped home his first NHL goal, in his first regular season game. The Sens would hold on to preserve a 3-0 victory.

Scoring Summary
1st period: Chris Phillips (1) (unassisted) - 16:22
2nd period: Guillaume Latendresse (1) (unassisted) - 15:46
3rd period: Jakob Silfverberg (1) (Marc Methot) - 19:27

3 Stars
1. Craig Anderson
2. Carey Price
3: Chris Phillips

Excuse the crappy writeup, just wanted to get it out of the way. Next update should be around the allstar break.
This is extremely old, but I may reboot it as Ive gotten an itch to play some NHL.

Colorado Avalanche
2016-2017:


Michalek (83) - Duchene (88) "A" - Connoly (81)
Landeskog (80)
"C" - O'Reilly (82) - Fish (85)
McGinn (82) - Klimchuk (81) - Downie (80)
Bourque (79) - Loktionov (79) - Palmieri (77)

Ellerby (85) - Johnson (90)
"A"
Morrow (82) - Elliott (82)
Siemens (81) - Lowe (80)

Varlomov (85)
Ullberg (79)


Scratches: Jokinen (77), Eronen (81)


Probably not the definite roster for the beginning of the season but is a strong one at the moment. Brett Connoly deserved a call-up after a good year in the AHL with 60 points (25 goals, 35 assists). Eronen earned one also after coming second in scoring for AHL defensman with 61 points (6 goals, 55 assists). Lowe and him will most likely be fighting for the six man spot on the roster throughout the season.

With Patrick Marleau retiring this season after leading the team in goals (35), it is hard to say where we will be this year unless Milan and Brett can produce on the first line. We had a strong start last year but soon after started to falter which caused the trade for Marleau which did bring up the scoring a bit but it was too late. We finished 11th in the West and 18th in the NHL after only two seasons ago being one win away from the President's Trophy. But with some rookies stepping up their game this year, and Matt Duchene getting back to that 79 point scorer he was two seasons ago, we can get back there.

More updates on the roster soon.
