Re: Official NHL Season 2015-2016 Thread

batdad: What are your thoughts about that last trade with Florida? I have heard some less than complimentary things about McCann in the past and his personality. I have seen Andrej Pedan (sort of) make a statement on twitter that backs those things up a bit. I am not shocked by this deal at all, al...

Re: The CHL Thread 2015-16 & 2016-17

I predict the biggest upsets of all time....but only because of a lack of ice, and these games end up being played on grass. Sheffield Steelers win the whole thing, going undefeated after a big scare in game 1 vs Red Bull Salzberg, in which they eke out an 11-1 victory. Nah they won't win. It will b...

Re: Official NHL Season 2015-2016 Thread

Fleury will not cost Pittsburgh. The fact that Kessel-Bonino-Hagelin have been their best players is what will cost them, not the goaltending. Well, that and the fact that their defense is scary, especially if Daley is out any length of time. That being said, this series is impossible to pick. Two r...

Re: Way to many dumb passes by AI

I would not worry about it. I have never ever once thought the 2D sim was EXACTLY what happened. :-D Especially since when I watch and #5 throws the puck into the corner to the other team, and he does not get a give away in the stats.

He is pretty darn good. Best forward though, not necessarily best player. :-D In fact I would argue that D and G are harder to play, and therefore by definition, the best player in those categories becomes the best player in the game regardless of stats. Kopitar and Ovechkin. As well as Toews and Ka...

Also, injuries like that happen, when you overuse your players. I find that if I give a guy all 82 games (and this is any player) and play him on the top line, or 2nd line, and the top pp or 2nd unit or pk....he gets hurt at the end of the season, or during the playoffs, when I want that star player...

Jensen is a guy the Canucks management overhyped right from the start. He will not ever amount to that much in the show. The desire is not there.

FOr the one playing guys on two lines. I have heard of and seen people do this. It is how they get the 150-200 point guys in the old game. I have never done it, and cannot say I am sure how it would work in the new game. My personal feeling is those guys who did it and managed the 200 point player w...
