There was a roster update recently but there are still no Bergeron or Söderberg on the bruins when I play online versus mode. Have they already abandoned 13 for 14?

I dont think that line update changed 1 thing. I'm starting to get pissed, the last line update was after the trade deadline. It can't be that hard to update lines and they should know how much it matters to people when they're favourite players (Bergeron, Kesler, CROSBY) are out of the game.

2. People who aren't confident enough in their own skills that they have to pick one of the powerhouse teams in the game (Canucks, Kings, Hawks, Pens). I don't mind if that's their "favourite team," but if I see them debating who to pick and they pick one of those teams I try extra hard to beat them.

3. People who try to dangle the whole game and go for only one type of goal. I do respect good RS skills so I don't mind this too much but it's still rewarding when you beat them.
The Canucks without Kesler for the whole season are considered a powerhouse team?

I noticed they haven't put Patrick Sharp back yet either. Ridiculous.

Also, I've got a couple videos to share:



And a nice shootout goal!

Did they update anything at all? Seriously? I thought for sure they would have added all the various players who weren't in the game and at least played an NHL game (Max Reinhart, Danny DeKeyser, Andreas Sustr, Drew LeBlanc etc.) but it seems like everything was exactly the same.

Some actual reasonable Stat on players now. Especially Sens/Oilers, but as always they can't get everything right. I agree at the bare Minimum Anderson should be 85 Overall, he was one of the best if not the best in the league this year.

I'm so glad they bumped up Silfverberg, whenever I do a GM mode he never develops whether I'm using Ottawa or not. Often happens with Zibanejad too

A lot of these overall changes are good and make sense, especially for the goaltenders. Glad they dropped the overalls of Bryz and Thomas, they were always way too good in GM mode. The upgrading of guys such as Anderson and Holtby are well-deserved, too.

I feel like EA has most of there prospects, alright. Like most pretty good stat'ed. I'd put McDavid up as a 5/5 Green Star prospect or something like that, I've been meaning to do that, as he's one heck of a Kid.

Had this goal in practice today. I'm sure a lot of you can do this already but I've never tried to figure out how to do it before so I thought it was pretty sick

Hello all. New here.

I'm a stay at home d-man getting sick of this game.

Wish I could find a game where I can be involved in the cycle once in a while

This game is so frustrating, I don't enjoy winning at all and losing is infuriating. Once you get to a certain level every game is just the same thing over and over again. I think I'm done with NHL games, I don't think this is a flaw that can be fixed through development, the fact is that gamers tend to find exploits and once they do that's what the game becomes about.

Trust me, if they fix the forehand deke, it will just open something else up.

Has anybody noticed how when you get someone in OTP who doesn't pick a position, the game will often pick a position for them and put them in the game anyway?

Who the **** at EA thought that was a good idea?

The thing that's the most annoying for me in NHL 13 (I pretty much only play Be a GM) is the trade system... If a player isn't on their trading block there's no way a trade for that guy can be made, you could offer Crosby for Chipchura and if Chipchura isn't on their trading block they'll refuse and say you're an idiot for not looking at their trading block...
