Somehow, the coaching staff has vaulted my "pro" into the #1 center position at a whopping 77 rating. This is ahead of Ribeiro, Richards, and Modano on the Stars.

I will be surprise if they keep you up there on the first line for long. After I was bumped up to the first line on the Ottawa Senators I played 4 games where I obtained between 3 to 4 points each game. After the 5th game I was sent back down to 3nd line saying that my stats were just not what they had expected. ???

Dany Heatley- LW - 93
Jason Spezza - C - 93
Daniel Alfredsson - RW 93

I was rated a 79 at that point.

I played all day yesterday. I made it halfway through my 2nd season single player BAP without simming a game and am miles ahead for the Rocket Richard Trophy.

I'm hoping to get the Rocket myself, but my stats are bad when analyzed. I average about 1 point per game. Season isn't over yet and I've already passed 30 goals and assists which looks great, but then look deeper and see that I have the worst shot % in the league, have more than double the turnovers than the 2nd place guy. As a LW it is odd I have the most hits in the league and also in the top 5 for takeaways.

If I was a real player I would be like the T.O. of the league. Give me the puck! Give me the puck! waaahhhhhhhhhhh! and shoot every single time I get my hands on the damn thing.

Having tons of fun, but when you look at those deep stats it is embarrassing.

I played in a game that headed to a shootout at 0-0 with two manual goalies last night. Then played in a game where the AI goalie was torched for 7.

Playing against a team with only one human player is a bad idea. You can always count on "live" players to herd after the puck and an impatient goaltender to cough it up for turnovers.

Ah golf. I wish i could golf right now, however a back injury is keeping my involvement of sports activity limited to controller based sports. At least for a couple of weeks.

Until then, the only disc going in my 360 is NHL 09.

I'd give my left nut for this game. Only the left one because I already gave my right one for '08. Hopefully '10 sucks because I'm almost out of options!

I have to agree. This game is amazing! I used to love playing nhl 2k7 , then I went to 2k8. I hated the controls. I gave up on hockey last year but was craving it again and after the reviews, I went for it. THis is the best game I have purchased since owning my 360// Its flat out incredible! Dont hesitate.

If your looking for a member to play online, add me!

My gamertag is : Oingoman2

This is the the ONLY game that has torn me away of Call of Duty 4 for more than a week since its release.

That is saying a lot.

I'll tell ya, playing with your won player on team mode is pretty fun unless you have a human goalie, for the love of god, 99% suck sooooooooooooooooo bad.
They let in 3-5 bad goals then quit in the first period! Then the rest of your game is fugled!

Blasting brown notes for 10 years and counting!

This game is so amazing. In Be a Pro I helped the Nashville Predators win the Cup. Came down to Game 7. Facing the Boston Bruins who had acquired Rick Nash who led the league in goals and overall points all season. Towards the end of the second period I put in a killer slapshot top shelf to go up 1 - 0. A minute later I feather a pass up the middle to Arnott that turns into a breakaway goal. To finish the game off I put in an empty netter and then start a fight just to put the cherry on top of an amazing season.

no cheating/glitching to score goals, no reloading old saves when I lost important games. It just made it so much sweeter.

One of the biggest cimes in playing OTP without a full roster is the guy who takes control of the CPU player on a breakaway. You know CPU Ovechkin will score you a goal now and then. Locking in a position helps maintain the "swarming" and encourages a little discipline.

whoever wants in, just let me know. Our team is down a bit, but it's a huge team so whatever. Lot of cheap losses to toe draggers. Always people on. I know the team here is disbanded, we got 21 players right now more is better

I'm just playing a bunch of random OTP Quickplays, so add "cueCrew" if you have room for stragglers. Thanks.

"Disc is unreadable" messages started popping up last night. The game will load up and let you go through menus, but on the way to lauching a game it hiccups.

The disc looks spotless.

GoW2 and other discs work.
