Also, am I going crazy or is there a longer lag between changing your active player than in years past? Seems its a much slower response time, which I notice a lot more when I am on the defensive

Any and all input would be appreciated
It is a lot different, but you will get used to it. I hated it at first, but then realized I had to actually position my guy's body properly toward the play and always be aware of where his stick is. You should also try to skate around with the controller joystick inbetween the middle and fully extended. Makes it a lot easier to turn and maneuver. Staying full speed will make it impossible to skate around naturally. You'll just go in really fast straight lines and take a long time to change direction. Try spending about a half hour in "Free Skate" and get a feel for it. It has it's faults, but I think the new skating is an improvement.

I've played about 25 games in my franchise, and the only two trades I've been offered were Hemsky for a 3rd and 4th round pick, and then Hemsky for Patrick Elias.

I declined both, but I do agree that there are some sort of flaws with trading.

the problem is with the valuation of players. You can acquire guys like Backes and Zajac for minor leaguers if you want to. Scrubs are worth too much, players on non-ideal contracts (at least in the perspective of the game engine) are worthless.

Guys...I have a 360. My son used his gtag to register the online pass. Am I not allowed to play online with my gtag? Only one online gtag per game?

Yes and no. You can play hut and such without the online pass, but you cannot play EASHL, online versus, or online hut games.

That's such ****, and I assume the same is true for other EA titles.

Not to start a console war, but the system works well on PS3 because the code counts for all accounts.

Feel bad for you guys, the extra accounts are really helpful.

Total ********. I have four Xboxes in my house, with several differnent Gtags. Most importantly my son has his, and I have mine, and if he wants to play a game online and so do I, we have to buy the game twice?

Pathetic.

You can buy the code online for 10$

I actually think the 360 is a lot better for ported games like NHL13, the I hate the fact that Xbox live costs money with a passion... Not going to get into it here though..

I have accepted the fact that we have to have more than one Xbox live account. ($60 per year) But to make someone get a second code for a second gamertag is ridiculous.

On PS3 it is different for some reason. The code works for all accounts.

How good does Sean Monahan get after the most recent update?

I drafted him and he had 4.5 gold stars and was a 64, but only was a 66 after year one in the Juniors.

I traded for him in my 5th year. He's a 77 OVR I think and I gave up... Kyle Brodziak.

That's going to solve that how? I've had the same thing happen to me in NHL 13.
I have a suggestion, actually be productive.
Edit: Should I have said this nicer? Probably. However, I've already said it so no point in taking it back.

apologies if it's been discussed but is there some sort of bug in penalties?

im playing offline BAGM, quite enjoying it except i'm literally NEVER on the powerplay. cpu penalties are maxed but they absolutely do not ever take any sort of penalty. i've got cpu teammate penalties at 2 out of 6 and i generally give away 2 or 3 penalties per game, which is fine. my sliders are good aside from this, i dont want to mess them up, but WTH is up with penalties? slash me, trip me, dump it straight out, do something!

Does anyone know how star ratings for teams work? In my Jets GM file, my goaltending tandem features a 91 overall goalie and an 83 overall goalie, which puts us at 4.5 stars. Nashville and Tampa however (87, 82 and 90, 82 respectively) are rated 5 stars.

Curious.
