Am I blind or did they take out Emerson Etem from the Ducks?

The player ratings for rookies are ****ing stupid. Tarasenko gets added into the game and is an 81 overall out of the gate. That's fine. But why is Yakupov a 62? Schwartz a 65? Silfverberg a 73? Conacher a 71? Hamilton a 67? Galchenyuk a 65? It makes no sense. They made their respective NHL rosters for crying out loud. That means they're good enough to play in the NHL. That also means their overalls shouldn't be so damn low.

The one that blows my mind the most though - Richard Rakell was good enough to make the Ducks' lineup...

59 overall.

The game honestly should have far more customization options. I pay for it, I should be able to play it my way, for instances just like these. If they can do it in Madden, they should be able to do it here.

These I tweaked a bit higher, generally those drafted got 65-72 and those for the '13class are 65ish - 60 so that they play top minutes in the CHL and FEL.

Seth Jones (Portland)
Nathan MacKinnon (Halifax)
Jonathan Drouin (Halifax)
Alexander Barkov (Tappara)
Sean Monahan (Ottawa)
Rasmus Ristolainen (TPS)
Nikita Zadorov (London)
Darnell Nurse (S.S. Marie)

Jason Dickinson (Guelph)
Hunter Shinkaruk (Medicine Hat)
Adam Erne (Quebec)

Ryan Murray (Everett)
Morgan Rielly (Moose Jaw)
Mathew Dumba (Red Deer)
Hampus Lindholm (Norfolk

Was too lazy to create Lindholm, Nichushkin, Forsberg etc. I preted they never existed.

Cuz they didn't update the ratings. They're the same ones from when they were on their junior teams. Ea likes to bump guys up just because they are playing in the NHL instead of rating them appropriately in the first place.

I posted this in the dynasty thread, don't you love their trade engine?
Traded Wacey Hamilton and a 3rd for Selanne. Also traded Hoffman, Dzuirinsky(sp?) and a 2nd for St.Louis and Ohlund. The com offered me both trades

These new online slider settings are horrendous!!!

No speed, no flow, little ability to hang onto a puck, pokecheck is even more obnoxious now with low agility levels.

Stupidest update thus far. Took it too far backwards on most slider settings.

Am I crazy or is anyone else finding this?

I didn't think that was possible, but is 6:00 in penalties even an option IRL? It was international teams. Never seen this.
Back in 06-07 Josef Melichar got a double minor for high sticking and an interference penalty on the same play, giving Ottawa a 6 minute powerplay and effectively taking a triple minor.

That's the only time I can recall it happening, but it can happen.

I thought it was just me. I thought the poke checking was ridiculous before the update, but the goaltending is atrocious now- even more so then before. I wish I had a recorder so I could show some of the pos goals that have been going in since the update.

Yep, I posed about it earlier and no one responded

Everyone was the same exact speed.

All the rookies have the same overalls as before. Which is ridiculous considering that Tarasenko and Schultz were added in as 81 overall. Sure, they are two of the best rookies, but the other rookies have ratings that imply that they aren't even NHL-ready. Yakupov is still a 62 which is the worst one imo.

Here, I copied mine for you.

Just extract it to a USB stick, copy to your PS3 from the XMB, and load it in the game.
Make sure to keep the folder structure intact (the PS3 directory should be in the root directory of your USB stick) or it won't be recognized.

Year after Year I cannot win with my Oilers in this GM Mode. It's been 5 years now and 4 years I've made the playoffs and in the 2nd and previous year I made it to the Finals, lost both. I'm simming. I just previously lost to the Tampa Bay Lightning. I really need some suggestions on what I should do. Resine? I just don't know. I'm treating it like it's real cuase I like to and boy are we disappointed, ugh....

just bought it for ps3. few months too late i know. didnt like the demo but real hockey got me craving it. apologise since these have probably been asked but cant find.

1) any good sliders I can DL? i like a fast-paced, hard-hitting game (much preferred NHL 11 to 12)

2) any good rosters (i.e. up to date but better ratings than NHL's)?

tia

I'm in my 5th season with my Blues GM and Vladimir Tarasenko is still 81 overall Lol. I've given him a ton of PP time and the top line of 5 on 5. He's had decent seasons of 45 points, 44 points, and 48 points, but he doesn't improve. Jaden Schwartz on the other hand, is an 85 overall with a ridiculous offensive rating. He's 99 passing, 98 puck control, 97 Offensive awareness and between 88-91 in each of the shooting categories. He just led the league in assists. Tarasenko has like no trade value. Each year I hope Tarasenko will just jump to 88 overall or something, but it never happens . Drouin also has 99 each shooting category. He's won the Rocket Richard the last two seasons. Also, Jake Allen jumped from an 80 to an 85 overall when he did not get a second of time in net. I made him the back up in the AHL, but somehow he jumped 5 points. I don't get it.

I can't find Mike Knuble in the new update. I want to add him to the Flyers. Can't find Mark Eaton, either, but Arnott is in free agency and available to add to the Rangers. Not sure why Knuble was taken out.

Did a few updates to the Oilers GM so i'll update that later. Also have come to a decision that I might move on to a new team after this season if it isn't a cup.(Going into the 6th season with the Oilers). Last year was outstanding we had 60 wins, enough said. But we fell in game 7 in the finals. I really just don't know what to do anymore so I'm hoping for a cup this year.
