    So I wonder if I can be effective as a playmaker now, like I originally wanted to be when I first set up my character...

    Love how glitchers still ****ing try that cheese goalline goal and get pinged. Ref loves to call penalties now, I had an idiot on my team that kept getting interference and being a puck hog. Basically don't hit the non puck carrier.

    Just beat a couple 6'5''-ish guys by a score of 5-1. I get a voice message asking me why my 6'1" Dangler ((87 speed)) is faster than them since they are "using the 99".

    Insert facepalm here.

    NHL 09 is fun again!!!!!!!!

    I don't want to jinx myself yet, but I have taken less penalties in the 4-5 games I played last night with the patch compared to when I had to play against cheaters.

    No more getting creamed at the blue line for no reason. (Well, I still got creamed a few times, but there were penalties called instantly)

    Some interesting penalties to note:

    More Roughing calls.
    More Boarding calls.
    More Charging calls.
    Even saw a Checking from behind penalty. It's a good change compared to Cross Checking and Interference.

    The only problem I've seen so far is that your computer teammates will get a lot of penalties too. Stupid ones like Holding and Slashing... but what can ya do?

    And it seems like all I have to do (as a defensemen), is to clog up the neutral zone and more often than not... they won't score. The only exception was yesterday. We played against a 2 person team and they both picked defense. The defense would constantly shoot from the point and the computer forwards were so damn aggressive and they would constantly score easily. I would just call that a "fluke" though, since we still get crappy computer goalies from time to time. =\

    While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.

    Just got a PS3 for x-mas and recently purchased NHL 2009, yes I'm late to the party. Does this game allow you to download current rosters? Does it cost $$? Or do I have to purchase NHL 2010 when it comes out to update every teams' rosters?

    Rosters are updated every once in a while. I don't play a lot of single player so I can't remember when the last one was and when the next one is coming out, but since the trade deadline just passed I would expect one soon. It doesn't cost money to download the rosters themselves.

    Have I mentioned I love the patch?

    I'm now able to be the playmaker I originally wanted to set up from the start. The game seems to go at a much more realistic pace, we're no longer knocked off the puck within 0.2 seconds of receiving it, and I can actually now take the puck to the corners, look for the open man in the slot, and "thread the needle," so to speak. Worked quite well last night.

    When you connect to online play, it'll make you download the updated rosters anyway. After that, just save your rosters manually and you're all set.

    Oh yeah. Very good games last night. We were on a roll. Just gotta keep crashing the net and good things will happen.

    I'm finally back at a B+ rating. The last 10 times or so, whenever I could get to a B+, I would immediately face cheaters in the next game that will bring me back down to a B or even B-.

    Hopefully this time around, I can finally get that damn legend card. It will easily be obtainable at this pace. I can't wait!
