tried it several times - was getting really impatient towards the end. It was pretty much like i was in the penalty box for the rest of the game, except the view was from the bench.
I've managed to work my way up to the King's first defensive pairing as an scoring defenseman. My +/- is +27. :)
Of course, that's still on Rookie mode. I'm just starting to really get the hang of positioning, and my poke-checking abilities are getting better. I need to learn how to cover my assignments a little better (it's more of a getting used to the game physics thing than anything else, I think), and I'm trying to learn how to better aim a slapshot from the point.
The game is freakin' awesome, though. Can't wait for a roster update!
OK. I cry FOUL! I am in my second season and we just played Ottawa. How in the world can they have a roster under the cap with: Daniel Alfredsson, Nick Boynton, Brian Campbell, Nick Foligno, Dany Heatley, Jarome Iginla, Andrej Mesznaros, SCOTT NEIDERMEYER, TEEMU SELANNE, and Jason Spezza?? Its a friggin ALL STAR team!!
Foul I say! FOUL!!
edit: For those interested: Yes, I embarrassed them on their own ice! :)
I'm first line center for kings. Two trades just happened.
LaBarbera traded to predators for Fiddler. Then Armstrong traded to NY Rangers for Zaba.
I don't know about that. Oh, when I first was brought up by the Kings. We had and still have Brian Campbell. Some trades I can see and others are just totally insane.
Kings traded Frolov for Bieska in my BAP, the biggest one so far.
Kings traded Purcell for Tootoo in my BAP.
I hate that douche! I throw a big check on him every chance i get.
The Kings traded Frolov for Jere Lettinen (sp?)
I hate him, he hogs the puck. Fro always passed first...
I'm still stuck in Manchester, 18 games....averaging a point a game too... :-p
