My AI teammates love passing the puck in behind our net when we're trying to clear the zone instead of passing it up and out.

Started this earlier. LW right handed player. Was rated 71 which was odd. Might be because I put myself age which is 20.

Got drafted 1st OVR by the Canadiens.

I really like playing for Nashville but its becoming a grind. My line mates do absolutely nothing, I keep getting put on the ice when the other team is working in our zone, and if I don't score 2 or three goals we loose 90 percent of the time. Should I ask for a trade? I am leading the team in goals and points by quite the margin.

And just as I expect to get the trophy for being drafted 1st overall - I get picked 3rd??

What the hell? Did the stupid interview process just completely negate everything I did in a matter of two minutes? I wasn't even being a jerk or anything.
Hahaha, same thing happened to me, I was ranked 1st to 3rd and answered the questions as nice and honorable as possible and I droped to 32nd and got drafted by Detroit. I immediately get sent down, didn't even get a chance to play in the pre-season and I said that the organization is run by clowns and they said they're going to trade me, then the game froze and i was forced to start all over again.

This time I made myself an Eric Lindros 6"5 240 sniper and won the memorial cup and got drafted 1st by the Sabres. I got the billboard endorsement and I play every 3rd period on pro. I put hat-ricks every night and broke Gretzkey's record. I lead the NHL in every category except for assists. I have an 100 in Fans an teammates and a 85 in management and a 54 in family.

Does anyone else have trouble getting endorsements? I can't seem to get any.

Got a penalty for interference when I accidentally ran into an opposing player when I was just trying to come off for a line change, thankfully my team killed the penalty

Also, can get assists like crazy, but not as many goals, though my player is getting better enough that the goals are starting to come

If you injure someone on an interference call you get the boot.

Open lane up the wing? Pass it behind the net or straight to the other team. I thought these were supposed to be NHL players.

My BAP's stat line right now on All-Star/Superstar:

GP 28 G 42 A 25 PTS 67 PIMS 79 +/- 10
I find it more annoying to get assists because I have to rely on my teammates to get goals that I assisted on. Also, it sucks when they go for line changes when chasing the play back into our D zone, so I have a danger of getting a minus when I'm not even in the play yet.

I get a lot of assists... my teammates do a great job of putting the puck in the net, especially on the rush. Playing on All-Star.

My last game I didn't have a problem with assists. Played against the Prince Albert Raiders and beat them 7-3. I had 1G 3A that game.

I had a problem scoring goals in the beginning but my linemates were filling the back of the net easily. I'm centering the first line on the Sarnia Sting. Now about thirty games in, I'm second in goals and first in assists in the OHL. My two linemates are first and third respectively.

So me and my two linemates have first second and third in scoring, goals, and assists in the OHL. Oh yeah and I have 186 hits in 30 games and the next closest guy is Tom Wilson with 84.

Does anyone know if the money in the game does anything?

Really don't understand half of the penalties called in the games. I got Ron Hextall'd behind the net and got called for goaltender interference ....wtf.

"You can't be taking bad penalties out there"

An opposing player trapped me between himself and his goal, and the goalie came over and touched me. Bam, 2 minutes for goaltender interference. I was pissed.

Scored a hat-trick in my second pre-season game. Although two were by the CPU during simming. Third was in OT, a wrist shot from the half-boards hit Lindback's glove and went in.

I seem to go on slumps, I'll play a game or two where I score around 4 goals a game and than a few where I can't buy a goal if my life depended on it.

Whenever we go to a shootout, it's the same result. My player scores, but the rest of my team loses the shootout. Every. Time.

I was going to start my BAP career at the NHL draft but decided to start in the minors to build my players attributes. My player is a power forward left winger and surprisingly I started at a 71 overall to begin for the Calgary Hitmen. I have no problem scoring goals through my teams first 7 games, however I'm getting annoyed with the fighting every time I throw a check.

Don't get me wrong, I like the new fighting system but through 7 games I have been in 8 fights(3 in the same game), all of which have come by simply throwing checks. I've won all the fights but it seems like it's too much.
