Wow stockey I was so close to tying it at the end! I thought Enroth could have played better, those goals looked stoppable to me. Pretty close game overall, I think the teams were even. Good game

Such a heartbreaking loss against :Hawks finals 16 seconds... Brassard gets setup alone backdoor with a perfect one-timer....only to break his stick sending the puck nowhere near the gaping net.. *sigh* losing 1-0 is never easy.

I started off pretty strong.. but the sim before and this sim killed me.. and now I am almost a .500 club again.. frustrating to say the least.. and not to mention I lost 1-0 to Anaheim's CPU last night.. I hate playing the CPU.. I had far more shots and had a massive advantage in TOA and they score on a soft wrister from the top of the circle.

Someone said it best in the either this thread or the Sitwell thread.. this game does not reward you for good play.

Though probable my D in sims now will be pretty hard to beat
(Human Vs. Human though maybe not)

Staal 85 - Doughty 88
Martinez 86 - Greene 82
Hickey 81 - Stuart 81

"This game doesn't reward you for good play" is absolutely wrong. Literally all of my offense comes from moving the puck around in the zone a la cycling. You get rewarded defensively (generally) for solid position, I would cite NJ and TB as the best examples of this based off who I've played.

I dunno, I think a common misconception based on a few people posting in here and Sitwell is that if you have more shots or higher TOA then you deserve the win, simply not the case imo. Anyone can move the puck around in the attacking zone or pile on the shots, that doesn't mean you "outplayed" the opposition. Just my opinion. I don't generally look at the numbers at the end of the game to judge whether I was outplayed or I outplayed them, I can tell that from the flow of the game.

Damn, ever since I joined this league it seems the Nashville Predators have the worst luck with injuries

Briere out 20+ games - my #1 RW
White out 20+ games - my top 2 Dman
Lombardi out 10 games - top 2 C

last year i got the team and 5 guys were injured and my first game i played Zetterberg got injured and than it went downhill from there with injuries

I feel like the Habs last year where since Game 1 of season injuries galore

I don't generally look at the numbers at the end of the game to judge whether I was outplayed or I outplayed them, I can tell that from the flow of the game.
there are certainly games where I am cycling in the offensive zone, but the other team plays great defense and I cant get anything open for a shot.. though those are not the games I am talking about.. There are games I get multiple great chances off of the cycle and the goalies make unreal saves, or my aim all of a sudden becomes ****, I hold the aim stick for a particular shot in any other game and it's on net, I use the same position and the same shot in another game and it misses completely. I know the difference about having more TOA but still being out played and having more TOA and outplaying the opponent.

Nashville was a good example, in our last game I had more TOA, but couldn't get a shot off and ended up losing 3-1, I was outplayed defensively in that game.

But last night I outplayed the CPU, had shots dead in the slot, missed them all wide, when normally they're on net in any other game.. I had shots from all over too.. from the point, from down low, the slot, the halfboards, and right outside the crease, Hiller stood on his head.

Haha. Unbelievable. The same goal both games. a soft, low slapper from beyond the blue line that the goalie lets by in between his legs.

I've been getting a lot of bad breaks this season but hopefully things even out.
