looks like the Western Conference is the Weaker Conference this year...

Funny how as soon as I leave the West it becomes the weaker conference.

Yeah, you were so busy losing in the Stanley Cup Finals you couldn't think about anything else.

Classy move by to:

1. Watch the replay of them injuring my captain, and
2. Follow that up by breaking the ice time rules for the 2nd straight time I've played them this season

I rewatched a lot of replays because I was making lunch at the same time, watched that one in particular to make sure it wasn't something stupid I'd done so I could apologize (twas in fact a CPU controlled Markov).

And that game was nothing but powerplays/penalty kills, managing ice time is nearly impossible in those situations.

I don't care about the replay watching, but it really isn't that hard to get your 4th line on the ice for one shift a game.

I only had one player close to 25:00, and that's with my 1st line RW getting injured and all the penalties in the game.

I've had to remove Bergeron or Eriksson from my 1st line or PK/PP mid game numerous times. It's not that hard. If you edit lines between periods and manually select lines during the games, it shouldn't be an issue.

There really is no excuse for breaking the TOI rule. Hell, I gave a two minute buffer for you guys. 27 minutes is almost half the game.

I try to get my 4th line out there early in each period to get it out of the way.

usually my lines per period will run

1st line
4th line (or 2nd depending on how my 1st line played)
2nd line (or 4th depending on the above)
3rd line
1st line
2nd line
3rd line
4th line (1st/2nd if its late in the 3rd in a tight game)

After a powerplay or PK, I will most likely ALWAYS roll my 4th line for at least a short dump/chase shift

Board play in this game is the worst..

I go to play a puck along the boards tapping pass so my player passes it right away because the opposing player is baring down on them and going to hit them.. and what do they do.. hold on to it and allow them to be boarded causing a turnover.. happens all the time.. and lost me the game to chicago..

Game settings are the same. Honestly it is probably just the ebbs and flows of how teams perform in this game. It definitely varies over time.

NINE PENALTIES! Crazy stuff man. Of those nine, one was a 5min Gamer by Seabrook which is when both of the goals i let up that game happened. NINE PENALTIES.

I received a PM from both, and Chuck's actions were inexcusable, but they also paint Wilco in a negative light as well.

Honestly, based on the information I received, both GMs should have been more respectful. Chuck will need to replicate the score either by playing his CPU and purposefully losing by at least 5 or 6 to 1, or play Wilco and recreate it.

There will be no more discussion on the topic. GMs need to show more respect towards one another and not treat this league as if winning it means anything more than some bragging rights every so often.

This is the kind of stuff that is lighthearted and good for the league.

Things like running other players because you are losing, running up the score when the game is in hand, or quitting out because you have a problem with how someone plays are not what makes this league great. The commitment of the community to make things fun and interesting is what makes this league great.
