O ya, one of the best features of the 07 game IMO was the stick handling. Have they done any major changes to that, and also is there a speed burst?

thanks again.

The stickhandling has changed a bit in that you can only do fancy dekes with the left bumper (interesting concept, I'm kind of a fan). But the skill stick is sorta gone, dekes and shots are still with that stick.

No speed burst but it is sensitive (finally) to how hard you push the d-stick

Sturm-Bergeron-Bochenski(prolly gonna get moved soon. bergy and sturm create oftens and he seems to drift around. )
Schaef-Kessel-Krejci(Schaef and kessel=good chemistry)
Wolski-Nokki-Kobasew

Chara-Alberts
Ference-Wideman
Lashoff-Stuart

Possible trade soon cuz D is lacking shutdown ability.

Manny
Timmy

Axe and 1st rounder for semin(Washington)
Ward and 3rd for Wolski(Colorado)

Stats

Manny fernandez- GAA 1.98 sv% 91.3
Timmy does terrible if he doesnt play 5 straight. If he subs for 1 or two games he does horrible but if i keep him in he gets on a roll by the 4th or 5th game

(in case anyone cares)
Update of my Dynasty: Lost in the EC Semis to Pittsburgh in 7 games (oh man is Crosby good in this game... sniped me at least once a game it seemed).

Was able to re-sign Redden to a Chara contract, lost Semin to free agency out of the interest of re-signing Bergeron.

To clear some cap space, I traded my top pick (who ended up being pretty good, 70 with 88 potential) with Aaron Ward to Columbus for Rotislav Klesla and saved $800k and got much younger on the blue line.

Sturm-Savard-Bergeron
Schaefer-Kessel-Kobasew
Trevelyan-Krejci-Karsums (Trevelyan had a great year in Providence)
Reich-Nokelainen-Bochenski (Nokes is my top PKer and is quite adept)

Chara-Redden
Lashoff-Klesla (both 79s)
Stuart-Ference (both 77s)

Fernandez
Thomas

edit: just signed Christ Simon for 2y/$1.85 per, sliding Trevelyan to 4th line LW and Reich off the roster.

Double edit: 25 games in, Traded Ference and a 2nd to Pittsburgh for Lessard (97 potential) and some cap relief, with Sigalet as good as Ference waiting in the wings.

Ivan you're an animal, every time i try to send a game invite, you're in your damn dynasty. I'm not the one sending a million invites, just one or two when I see you're on. We need to play a league game for the HF Boards league, if you see me on and you want to play, send me an invite, don't wanna bother you if you're doing the dynasty thing. My GT is KBBLES N VICKS, i'm sure you've seen it.

Well after trading Ference, Sigalet has stepped up and been a beast, netting 5 goals in 14 games along with a +9 and 1 assist in a pairing with Mark Stuart. I also traded Tim Thomas to save some cash and promoted Sigalet to be Fernandez' backup.

Sturm-Savard-Bergeron
Simon-Kessel-Kobasew
Schaefer-Krejci-Karsums
Trevelyan-Nokelainen-Pelletier

Chara-Redden
Lashoff-Klesla
Stuart-Sigalet

Fernandez
Sigalet

4th in the Conference at the start of February.

EDIT:

At the Trade Deadline. I'm 3rd in the Conference, 2 behind Philly for 2nd. I just traded Savard for Ryan Whitney and a 2nd round pick (Pitt proposed it), and I dealt Anton Babchuck for a 4th rounder (i signed him midway through the year to takeover for Chara when he was hurt).

Sturm - Bergeron - Kessel
Simon - Nokelainen - Kobasew
Schaefer - Krejci - Karsums
Trevelyan - Pelletier - Reich

Redden - Klesla
Whitney - Sigalet
Lashoff - Stuart

(Chara's out until the end of March)

Fernandez
Sigalet

Well, got bounced in 4 straight by the Flyers. Before the third year, I signed Robbie Schremp at a 2 year, $2m/year deal to be my 2nd line center, giving Krejci another year as 3rd line center to mature. I also traded Manny Fernandez, Mark Stuart, and Petteri Nokelainen for Jean-Sebastien Giguere, giving me one of the best 'tenders in the game. I'm 2-1-0 so far in year 3:

Kessel - Bergeron - Kobasew
Sturm - Schremp - Karsums
Schaefer - Krejci - Trevelyan
C. Stuart - Pelletier - Donovan (that's right)

Chara - Redden
Whitney - Lashoff
Klesla - Sigalet

Giguere
Sigalet

OT: Roster Update for NHL08

It's out now. So how do you get the download off live? Do you just connect to live and it starts or what?

Load up the game. Select the xbox live menu, then select the My nhl08 live menu (not sure the exact name, something like that).

once there you will see an option to check for roster updates.

let me know if this doesn't make sense.

i can't wait to play as lucic. hopefully they also increased the stats for thomas (although im not sure if they edit ratings during roster updates).

Made perfect sense. Thanks man. Now I can start my franchise . It's just crappy that I have to remake all my created players, do my edits and get Zhamnov off the team. Does anyone know if the Madden roster updates work the same?

Sobotka is a scorer, Hunwick is really quick in the game.
