I'm planning on creating Schultz myself, but i don't know enough about him, other than that he was the top prospect in the free agency. Would anybody be willing to give some overall and potential suggestions? Would also love if somebody said some aspects of his game that are stronger and weaker so I could have his stats representing that, and not just completely random.

the CHL goalies are terrible. let in goals from bad angles and have a save percentage of about -.750

Players gas out after one length of the ice.

I'm still getting used to the game but must say it is very very frustrating so far.

In 12, I just copied Tom Gilbert's stats and made tweaks where Schultz is better

Is Moroz not in the game either? Man was the rosters more accurate in the system in 12. Our prospects are missing all over the spot!

It also bugs me that Marincin, Musil, and Klefbom are rated so poorly.

If you do the 'Gagner Join's The Elite' challenge for some reason Eberle is #13

Pretty Brutal of EA sports not to put J. Schultz in the game. He is a player 29 teams all desired and some pitched hard for. How does that

Also- what is with Yakupov's rating ?!!!! 60 or 62 (can't recall) what the>!! Number one over all draft pick, we think a bare passing grade is reasonable.

So far, disappointed.

I've found that when playing the rating doesn't matter as much. In Yakupov's case he still has awesome speed and a great shot. In my be a gm league he is now an 87 after 5 seasons, so starting at a 62 didn't make a whole lot of difference.

On a totally different note, my girlfriend highly recommended playing Witcher 2.

If you like Mass Effect or Dragonage this game is pretty solid. It almost plays better on a console (the controls are a little "off" on a keyboard setup) but it's not that hard to get used to and the story is solid.

EA Sports hasn't shipped an NHL game in probably the last 10 years with up to date rosters.

You always have to wait for the first roster update.

They literally can't put him in until he plays a game in the AHL or NHL. Always been this way with NCAA players, their hands are tied.

Yakupov's rating is a joke though.

I could see how this would be annoying for people who do not have Xbox live. But for me it is simply a matter of waiting. Once the season starts (if it does) than they usually put out a roster update. This would put J. Shultz in the game and they will also more than likely improve Yakupov's rating.

How can they have most of our prospects correct in 12 bu in 13 not have a guy like Moroz in our system or even on the Oilkings brutal!! They are missing more of our unsigned prospects too that we're in 12. When are they going to get NCAA done??

Few things I am finding difficult about the game:

-Faceoffs. So hard... I will be happy if I win 3-5 in a game. I was decent at them in 12 too.
-Gaining zones. Hard for me to get in and set-up, especially with how effective stick checking is.
-Scoring. Seems like every time I have a nice chance the goalie makes an unreal scrambling save.

Haven't got NHL13 yet, but played the game at a friend's house and I'm not sure how I feel about it.

Either I didn't get the hang of it or they went way overboard with the skating change. I swear guys like RNH and Eberle are about as nimble in the game as Sutton is in real life.


I found a trick for face-offs. Just continuously spin the right stick without touching the left stick. I won 33 of the 35 draws in a game doing that.

My friends and I just made a league or the PS3 called "Death Star."
Only team taken is EDM. Join up!

We will generally be playing Friday nights & weekends (GMT).

Multiple players, superstar difficultly, everything is more or less standard setup.

Hey all. I'm new to the whole Be a GM thing. I usually just stick with my EASHL team or play a regular season. But I joined a GM Connected this year (not HF one), and I was wondering about player potential. Do players like Yakupov and Ryan Murray get better over the years? Is it wise to keep them in the minors for a few years? Just wanna know what I should be doing with my lower ranked players that have high potential. And the GM season length is only 5 years, so maybe I'm better off trading them if they won't reach their potential by then. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
