Right now Josi and Orlov are injured and my 8th best dman who gets slotted into the 6th spot is like 55 OVR.TBH if I was paying more attention to my Dman TOI I would have played Larsson a lot more too.

Also not sure how Luongo let in 5 goals with only 12 SA...
someone could use a little Ryan Wilson (76) and or Shane O'Brien (77) depth

3-1 this block.

Lose a game 8-1.

Still outscore opponents 15-13. Boomshakalaka.

Ovi this season has 1270 minutes and 46 GP. That comes out to 27.6 minutes a game which is nicely under the 28 rule Booty set out for me. I've spent a lot of effort keeping his minutes down, I'm sorry they got up a bit in our game, but that's gonna happen in the odd occasion man it was a 1 goal game for the entire thing, 5-5 and into OT, and we're obviously developing a bit of a rivalry. And he scored in 3 different ways (2x rebound being in the right place at the right time, 2x slot shot, 1x 1timer. It was a great game nonetheless, another series would be epic.
Lol. Deep into OT? It was 3 minutes. What's also failed to be mentioned is that Ovechkin missed extended time in the third because of a five minute major (not sure why he was allowed to come back and demolish my team for the remainder of the game)

It's disappointing someone goes out of their way to take the fun out of the goals race and points race but it is what it is I suppose.

Another series would be very exciting but it's annoying trying to stop the same shot from the high slot 15+ times a game. Hopefully I play someone else. I'd look forward to a matchup though. All our matchups have been close.

Good luck the rest of the way.

Maybe a list of everyones availability for that schedule period during Christmas just so we know who's around/who isn't around rather than just guessing.

How the hell am I going out of my way to take the fun out of the scoring race? That's ridiculous. By constantly monitoring his ice time and keeping it under 28 minutes/game average I'm actually going out of my way to add more fun back into the scoring race... And trust me, its not fun having to constantly babysit his minutes and monitor his time vis boxscores in the intermissions. He's right in the same ballpark as other teams stars, so his ice time is clearly not being abused. And I also make a strong effort to score in a multitude of ways with him. Of course flying down the wing with speed and cutting in for a wrister in stride is a big part of his game just as it is in RL, but I also constantly set him up for 1 timers, and he gets a ton of breakaways too.

In regards to me attempting to "score all my goals in the high slot", oh please. You tried that (and succeeded at it) much more than me. I specifically go out of my way to drive wide, try the cross crease 1 timer, and use my offensive dmen to generate offense from the point. After getting beat by guys like Florida and Winnipeg in the playoffs its clear to me you can't just rely on that to win. If you're predictable a good defense is able to shut that play down enough to win, you've got to diversify you're game and become unpredictable to beat a strong defense. Not saying I don't score from the slot because I do (2 out of 6 in our game), but by no means do I (or have any intention to) abuse that play because it doesn't pay off in the long run when a great D takes that play away and you're stuck without a way to score.

I actually took the liberty of recording our goals cause I had a hunch you were gonna make some accusations/complaints. I wasnt even going to post these, but after your last post im not gonna sit here and take your hypocritical comments willingly.

Washington's goals:

1- Ovechkin 1 timer http://vimeo.com/56028702

2- Ovechkin point shot rebound http://vimeo.com/56028869

3- Ovechkin "high slot" shot

4- Kane drives wide http://vimeo.com/56029064

5- Ovechkin rebound http://vimeo.com/56029237

6 - Ovechkin in slot in OT (oh baby what a shot)
http://vimeo.com/56028547

NYI goals:
1- high slot http://vimeo.com/56027511

2- high slot http://vimeo.com/56028112

3- high slot
http://vimeo.com/56028389

4 & 5- not scored in the high slot

So that's 3 of 5 (60%) of your goals scored in the "high slot" you accuse me of abusing, and 2 of 6 (33%) for me.

With this discussion I've just thought of a new suggestion for the NHL14 list: goal scoring charts/maps. This would allow people to see how and from where certain players are scoring (their own guys or other teams' guys). This could be useful for scouting other teams, as well as for fun.

In other news, the Caps are now on a 9 game winning streak. Who's gonna be the one that spoils the party?

Haha. THat first goal is the best. It defies gravity! PS not sure how that Tavares goal is considered high slot.

Babysit his minutes? You wouldn't have to do that if you just put him on one line like everyone else does instead of having him on your first, third and fourth lines.

Just took it after the game, too funny not to snap a photo lol. Yeah TBH I thought he was gonna be gone for the game after seeing the 5 minute penalty go up as well. I was surprised when he happened to come out there in OT lol. Not sure how that works.

habs continue to sit comfy in 7th with a pretty good block after a similarly good sim. Pacioretty having a nice year.

injuries starting to pile up though with Cole, Vinny and Purcell all now out. Although Vinny should be back next game and Cole shortly thereafter...I'd hate to be Phoenix right now with injuries

I can only imagine the peril my team would be under if I hadn't acquired Kostitsyn and Heatley. Seriously, them and Dubinsky are the only reason I'm winning games right now.

hey man this is where the push really starts. We've played almost 50 games so from here on out every game (at least for those not in a clear cut division lead) is a pretty big game, especially division and conference games.

You guys have all switched your club camera angles over to classic right?...

Cause there's some pretty decent guys in this league so the club team shouldn't be that bad Unless they match you up against some team with stacked attributes or something?
