    Same thing happens to me every once in a while... just go into your dashboard, delete all of your roster saves, and then go back on. It'll do it once more, but then should be good for a while.

    Hopefully you don't have any roster save files that you spent any time on... (creating players, etc)

    Yeah I should have mentioned again that each round is a best of 3 series, and I just decided the final round should be a best of 5. Sound good to everyone?

    I had a similar problem getting used to the controls. I bought my 360 specifically for NHL 08 and Halo 3, upgrading from my regular Xbox where I always played the 2k series... took me a little time but now it's almost laughable to go back to the 2k style of control.

    You should get used to it fairly quickly... I recommend playing a handful of games to get it down before your first tournament game.

    Definitely man.

    I just tried to get online and the EA servers can be infuriating. I select an online match and it automatically checks for roster dowloads. It takes forever to tell you hey we have a roster download available (which they always go) and do you want to download it? You say yes and it takes forever again, by then you lost your match and it never remembers that you recently downloaded a roster that they have had on their server for 2 months!!!!

    Not only that I constantly lose connection when it's checking for rosters and sometimes have to go through this 5-6 times before it finally takes. Then I get a game versus some dude and my game locks up during the 1st intermission of a 0-0 game. WTF?!?!?!?

    Works for me...that means to win the cup you need 7 victories total. That works out fine.

    The only serious complaint I have about this game is like, one game you go and score 5-0 on a guy and win, but the next time you get 45 shots - and not one goal goes in. It seems like whoever scores the first goal almost ALWAYS wins - even if he only gets 5 shots in the game, he'll get 4 goals. The guy who doesnt score first will get 30+ shots and get completely robbed every shot. It's kind of hard to explain what I'm talking about, but it's just a small rant so who cares

    Anyone wanna do some practice games feel free to message me @ Pevsfreedom on XBL and I'll play a few.

    Good game.

    Pretty laggy, but that goes both ways. First damn shot of the game goes in, and I couldn't get anything started against your defense. I had a quite a few chances towards the end, pulled my goaltender and somehow didn't end up giving up an empty netter (which seems to happen 99% of the time you pull your goalie in this game). And I couldn't win a faceoff to save my life...

    Damn Habs need some practice before our next meeting.

    Nice game CT. Your D was tough early, one of the few guys I've played who can poke check effectively. My big lines were shutdown. Broke through with some of my bottom sixers.

    Looking forward to game 2. Next game you host it, that way you can shoot twice going up.

    Just a helpful hint if you weren't already aware: You can go to the settings menu and set the home team to "always up" or "always down." I do kind of like how the default setting gives you a slight disadvantage, but most people play home team always up (down if using the away team)...
