Anyone have a center with the right attributes to be nasty on deking they want to trade me? I just realized my wings on my first line would be deking monsters if I had a center that could handle that setup.

Can you say PP fail for both our teams?
Seriously. My teams first line had awesome ratings and they did NOTHING.

I am quite confused by what you say is awesome, your top line had a rating of 5.2

When in comparisons, my top lines rating was 6.6

Am I missing something?

Combinations - 78%
1 Man FC - 79%

That means they should be awesome. Yet they sucked. The only reason your first lines rating was high was because they scored that 1 goal. Mine didnt score, so they got a rating of 5.2.

However, I see your point and I see why my statement was confusing.

Just realized Dohn double-shifted after Miler's injury and played nearly 29 minutes in this mornings game, wow.

If I had a decent PP, my offense would be top 5 and my defense would be top 3 and I'd be set.

I only have two fewer ES goals than you do. It's my PP that is atrocious. But apparently Nik nerfed DnC chase as a PP tactic. He only made a passing mention in a single post awhile ago but it wouldn't surprise me if he went overboard and nerfed it too hard.

I switched to DnC a while back but nothing came of it, so I switched back to the ideal tactics for my players.

You pulled even with Lancaster and myself in GA/G today due to the shutout and each of our teams giving up a goal. It's pretty crazy how even we all are statistically, save the aberration of Lancasters insane offense, which appears to be slowly coming back down to earth.

That National Conference finals is gonna be awesome, haha.

Along these lines, what ratings should your penalty kill units have? My PK line tactics ratings are consistently lower than my other lines...is that normal?

My team has been doing nicely ever since Snyder was signed. Looks like I might have been right when I thought my team needed another strong D man.

7-2 win today with my team putting up 37 shots and going 4-7 on the PP.

4.2 just got a bit tougher

gave up

http://trophyhockey.org/player.php?id=574232

i got

http://trophyhockey.org/player.php?id=54034

happy with the trade as ive been after a dman to partner riggin and got 4mill to spend but no one crazy good on free agency that i like

also my crazy young free agent goalie is picking up 25 ti in training since i got him so hopefully he turns out to be a good number 1. really tempted to give him a second straight start after getting his first shutout in the last game

http://trophyhockey.org/player.php?id=700727

now that i have two 85 EPA defensemen would you pair them together or split them up????

Ah, that makes sense. They were matched up against my 2nd line most of the game. And it seems like when they were, I won the faceoffs and that had a lot to do with the limited effect. When they were against my 1st line with a 82-77% it seems like I controlled the play. Would have to break it down line by line to figure that out.

I was surprised i won, as your team is better than mine.

Both of my PP's have been on DnC all season and it is converting at 38.3%.

My star players are really good for DnC, though and often play it at ES. My 1st PP unit is 78% on DnC and my 2nd PP unit is 73% on DnC.
