The post above will be edited as often as possible. Make sure that one player from each game posts the results from the game in this thread. Somewhere in the options menus on NHL 08 is an option to have the results emailed to you. Just set that up, cut and paste from the email, and wrap it in this without the spaces: [ C o d e ] [ / C o d e ].
I don't really think there's any reason to set up a new league/group online for this... to play each game, just set up an unranked game with the following (default) settings:
Private Game: Yes
Game Speed: Medium
Period Length: 5 min
It'd be interesting to play with 10 minute periods with a slow game speed, but we'll stick with the default settings since we're probably all used to them.
Have fun, feel free to suggest anything, post whatever you want, and in the case of nonresponsive players, we'll play it by ear (read: hunt down and punish them mercilessly).

Although I'll admit...something about playing an unknown in KOPI PEVS when he has Luongo worries me. I better fire up the NHL08. I haven't touched that game in over a month. I need me some practice.

Speak for yourself, I just got mine in the mail onTuesday and have played it once. The one thing I do not like is the use of the stick for the shots, it is a pain in the ass and the only pass on that mode is a saucer pass...to be honest, I might sell it back after the tourney and pick up 2K8

Me too, I've played with my friends from back home online but when you play the same people over and over again you tend to figure out their tendencies. I need to play some unknown guys online!

Well I'm ready.
Lol Orange Puck - don't worry, I'll probably get a early 3-0 lead and choke and lose 10-3.
I'll send you a message on XBL Orange, are we gonna do best out of X or just 1 game elimination?

saucer pass isn't the only passing option. They have a regular pass and a slap shot pass as well. Get used to the sticks man...once you get used to them it's the best thing in the world.

I'm pretty sure the format is supposed to be best-of-three. Just give me at least 24 hours to brush up on my stuff and I'll be ready. I honestly haven't touched that game since before Christmas.

OP if you're online in the next few days I'm offering up myself as an exhibition game partner so we can sharpen our skills. Let me know if you're interested.
