I came home yesterday from college and played some EASHL with some friends. I now know why I gave my xbox to my brother instead of taking it with me. We played 2 on 2 and my team gets 32 shots but 0 goals and about 5 posts. The other team gets only eh about 8 shots and 5 goals all because of the computer giving stupid passes. Something needs to change with the computer and goalies. holy ****.

So I'm not sure if this is a bug or something, but I'm hoping someone can help me out.

So it was July 1 in my BeAGM, and I gave Doughty an offersheet of 6.5 mil. He accepted it, and LA couldn't afford it, so they let him go. Drew Doughty then tells me he wanted to join my team, but he can't because I can't afford him. So I trade Jeff Finger for a 2nd (lol) and I then have enough money. Unfortunately, Doughty is nowhere to be found. He's not anywhere on my contracts screen, nor LA's. He is on the trade screen however, but I can't acquire him because he has been offer-sheeted (by me).

Is there any way to get him back?

go to the contracts screen and press X (im assuming XBox), that should bring you to all the players not on your NHL roster and Doughty should be there.

Couple questions:

1) Anyone know how much each training card raises the salary? Looking to apply four +7s and want to know how much that'll bump Myers' salary. I know a +4 shot increased someone's salary by 50, that's all.

2) Who is the best sub-1000 salary defenseman (preferably <900)? Preferably a guy with 85+ potential, or if not at least 75+ to begin with.

Also, interested in some trading if anyone's still out there.

Kind of weird in my BAP. I made a 6'5" power forward, playing center, drafted by the Red Wings.

Not having the best season as I am playing on All Star for the first time but getting used to it. Due to injuries, I am now playing on D and then center for PK or PP. It's really odd.

Never had this happen before.

I need a +9 RBC if anyone wants to let it go for 1200-1500 or whatever.

Once I get it, I'll have a 97-99-99-98-97 Cory Schneider with 50 games on his contract (at 1300 salary) and 99 games in his career if anyone wants to talk deal. He cost me something like 10k to beast mode so it'll be that+ or some players.

Just the number of people that straight up cheat at this game is enraging. Cheese goals are absolutely killing this game. I spent my entire night off last night from like 7PM to 1AM just trying to find a game mode that didn't involve people going 100% cheese goals.

Couldn't find one. Started the night going up 4-0 on some guy in the 1st, outshooting 22-3 then he started this long ice pass one timer that went in. I was all "Whoa, how did that happen." Then next shift he did it again, then again before I shut it down the entire game.

So yeah, I know these things can be stopped but I shouldn't have to abandon all offense on my behalf just to stop this cheese goal all night because my computer players fall for it 100% of the time.

I honestly don't even understand how people find it fun to just cheat the system. It wouldn't be so bad if it were 1 out of 10 people, but it's 90% of everyone online.

From a semantic argument, a "cheese" goal is a goal that goes in top shelf. In this game, those typically come from curve shots. For your one-timer goal, those are glitch goals, not cheese goals.
However, I don't really see how they are glitch either. One-timers have a high likelihood of going in if used correctly, in the game and in real life. And really, you should have been able to stop them. If they are really "long ice pass" one-timers, it shouldn't be that hard to intercept them. I don't see how playing positional defense (standing in the slot to intercept the passes) will sacrifice your offense either unless you play a cherry-picking full breakout offensive game.
There are a lot of players that use glitches in this game I agree, but it really isn't that hard to stop and you don't have to sacrifice offense in doing so. Just play sound positional defense.

I love the glitch goal/cheese goal arguement. I've only ever used the old S move and now the backhand deke move on breakaways. It was always my philosophy that if you let me get a breakaway, it's you fault not mine that I'm scoring that way!!

That said, if you are playing someone that is using that type of scoring, and they are up 3+ and still doing it, then they are just jerks (I'd prefer another word here but I think the filter would block it!). I haven't played online in years, but I used to play in leagues and I used to love to beat those jerks that ran it up on other people!

Anyway, more importantly than that, I am just entering my third season and Tyler Seguin is an absolute beast in this game! I almost feel like I'm cheating having him on my team, but I'm playing as the Bruins!!

the problem with people 'glitching' with one-timers is that the CPU defense does nothing to stop them-- so where in a real game, the D would adjust and stop those chances from happening after they produce a goal 2 or 3 times, the AI in the game doesn't do this at all, leaving it up to you to control your one guy (and move around to control other cpu players when they go astray)

Something funny occurred last night in a heated game in Be a GM. I just love the occasional shady disallowed goals and shady calls in general. Never before has a video game featured officiating that causes the same kind of emotions as in real life situations. Here's what went down:

My player is coming down on the backcheck, the CPU player stops in the slot and my player bumps into his back. The CPU player just leans forward to take the hit and doesn't fall down. Result: 2min charging.

Ok, I'll take the call.

Next up, my player makes a similar hit in the offensive zone, away from the boards. Just takes a couple of steps and bumps into a guy's back and the CPU player again leans forward to take the hit but doesn't fall down. This happened about ten feet away from the boards and the player wasn't injured. Result: 5 and a game for charging.

Game misconduct was assessed during the last ten minutes of a 0-0 game. Lost 2-1. Part of me is livid for getting shafted, yet at the same time I love how the game has these occasional atrocious calls.

Yeah, but I think he was talking about Online Versus Play not OTP. I understand in OTP there really isn't anything you can do about it, but when you are in control of all 5 guys on the ice, letting in a long ice pass one-timer is more your fault.

Agreed. Nothing is more angering than that "toe drag" move where the CPU D-Man stops short just long enough for the forward to skate right past him and into a 2 on 1. It's why I'm hesitant to play without a Dman when we only have 3 players online.

Everything else is stoppable with solid D.

And don't even get me started on how awkward the CPU is with it's decision to pass one foot away from me, or refuse to get pucks in deep, or make a u-turn at the blueline when entering the zone, or passing behind players when they call for them, or... the list goes on.

Does anyone feel like the Be a GM Mode gameplay is slower than playing a quick match? My entire roster just feels so slow and their reactions feel delayed compared to how they are in a quick match... It's really annoying me.

Can anyone tell me how to read the depth chart? It goes something like this:

Reserve list........ C 8/17
44/50 .............LW 11/6
.......................RW 5/6
Unsigned..........D 16/10
13/40...............G 4/4

We all know the height rollover glitch in NHL11, right? Something strange is going on in my Be a GM...

Just recently took a peek at the 2012 draft and noticed that a few guys have become 5'1"/155cm tall. Martin Frk and Alexander Khokhlachev (IIRC) have that issue. They're 6' and 5'10" respectively, so it can't be the usual rollover that's going on. Has anyone else experienced this?

Well I'm not entirely sure but I now have the tallest player in the NHL on the Oilers.. Magnus Paajarvi.. I went to check his stats after he had a great 80 point season in his third year and I noticed his height had gotten to 6'7.. The very next year he popped in 90 points with 40 goals and I go to check playoff stats or his speed or something and he is now 6' 9.. Don't know what's going on lol, anyone else had this?

PS Skille is an absolute beast in this game.

I have a couple of questions about the BAGM Mode:

I've only played one BAGM since i bought the game, with Colorado, so all the second-year situations are new for me.

- After the start of the second regular season, there's still one RFA at the market, Jack Johnson. He doesn't want to sign with Los Angeles, his demands are lower, but he's still RFA and doesn't play. ¿What happens with him? ¿He will be there until someone signs him? ¿He will become an UFA? It's a shame, because he wants to play for me (Colorado), i have plenty of cap to sign him, but i don't want to bring all my top picks.

- I've signed in the summer Stefan Elliot a 3 year-deal in order to retain his rights. Also, i've extended the same deal to Calvin Pickard and Tyson Barrie to bring him to Lake Erie and continue developing him, but they doesn't appear at LEM roster, and in my Contracts page they appear as signed. I'm worried because there are some of my best prospects and i want they at AHL in order to call-up to NHL in the future.

Thanks.

He can hold out if he wants to. If he's not signed by a certain date in December (1st?), he won't be eligible to play during the current season and has to be re-qualified by LA to keep him as RFA. If he holds out and isn't tendered a qualifying offer, he'll be UFA on July 1st. If it bothers you that he might hold out for the whole season, just make an offer sheet that you're sure the Kings will match. No picks lost and he'll play for the year.

Maybe someone will correct me if I'm wrong but the NHL/AHL/CHL eligibility seems to be a bit bugged in this game. Seems like some players will be overaged for CHL, yet are still ineligible to play in the AHL.

The RFA thing is definitely something that needs fixing. If you want Johnson and don't want to give up that many picks, you can usually strike a deal for his rights from LA for less.

Elliot, Pickard and Barrie are too young for the AHL. Players from the CHL have to be 21. European players can be younger.

Edit: Dexter is right, it is pretty bugged. Kadri is the only player I've seen that they let play in the AHL (under 21) after their overage CHL season.

Anyone know if Orlov or Kuznetsyov are in the game anywhere?

Orlov has been in Hershey for a bit, but haven't seen a roster update include him.
