    I am down with Hotsteppers. I would really love the Red Wangs but I am pretty sure we won't be able to pull that one off.

    Yea, I figure when I create the team I will go right with Hotsteppers. I assume everyone is OK with me making the team? Also, for the team name, if we are forced to pick a state (which we probably will be) I will probably pick Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania. PA. Penny Arcade. Yes, I am lame.

    I'm going to assume you're a flyers fan.

    I nominate Vancouver if a city is to be forced.

    Coming late to practice?! That is a fine of $5,000. And you are demoted to 3rd line duty.

    Anyone else for what place we should be from? Vancouver? Pennsylvania (initials are PA...which COULD stand for Penny Arcade :P)? Kansas City? Some ridiculous random place? I will send out friend requests tomorrow. Also, now I have three real life friends (you are all imaginary) on the team with a potential fifth. That doesn't mean I won't play with any of you though because I am sure they won't be playing 24/7 like I will. Plus, if someone is a "rookie" and isn't that good at the game I would like to play with you and help you get better.

    I am curious to see how they let us assign captains and alternates. I hope we can make more than one captain and two alternates. OK, back to Fire Pro Wrestling Returns. It will probably be the last time I play it for awhile. :winky:

    I work at best buy and we are not getting it in today and neither is my local gamestop. It shipped today. First a late demo and now a late game :x Only on the games I really want.

    edit: take a look at the NHL 09 website, saying it's not supposed to be out till the 11th in the top right http://www.easports.com/nhl09/

    I've started seriously keeping track of how many dudes have called in looking for 09. So far I've recieved 32 calls looking for 09 in the past hour and a half. Some of them being guys just like me that actually took off work to play this game. I feel bad for them, I almost did too :P

    If EB Games doesn't have the game first thing in the morning is there a chance it could come later in the day? Just cause I'll wait until later to go check if this is the case (going to trade in some games and maybe pick up madden or tiger woods anyways).

    This game has a very MMO like pre release feel. I feel like I need to get started ASAP to get a head start. It's so strange.

    I have a team already set up with some friends of mine but I am sure that will die off in a few months and they will go back to CoD and Halo for the majority of their gaming, I am definitely in with you guys when that happens.

    I just invited the few friends that will play this to the Hotsteppers. Fifteen people on one team = achievement. Yes, I am an achievement whore. I guess I could give my local Gamestop a call.

    edit: Yea, he said should be coming in tomorrow. He almost sounded like he got a few calls already about it. Heh. One store is enough calling for me.

    I feel the same way. I am so excited to make my own player, get my dad in on the '94 controls, play with you guys on a team and just have a blast. Around Pittsburgh right now it feels like the 90's again, everyone getting into hockey and getting excited for the upcoming season. It makes me happy :)

    I lived in Philly for a long time and I'm sure that town has the same feel now. Alas, I live in D.C. now and everyone is excited but people don't seem to care enough. They have the best player in the league (sorry Crosby) but they aren't in a "We're going all the way!" attitude. It's more of a, "We're going to win in another 4 years!". It's strange.

    I doubt the EAHL has so much depth. I imagine if a city name can be chosen, it can be anything we wanted and not limited to a list of cities. If anything, I'd think simply Penny Arcade Hotsteppers (or New Arcadia to tie in with the PA game) would be as possible as anything else.

    I also don't see how naming captains or alternates would have any significant effect in the game. Since there are no line changes, it's entirely possible to play whole games without them. I'd think that if anything, the captains would be selected before the game (in the lobby, perhaps) and it exists solely for the purpose of the game at hand. But again, that's even if it matters, which I'm not sure it does.

    Well, we'll know soon enough.

    Cheeeeeeeeee! (happy noise) Only a month away from the start of the season, I can't wait! Let's go Pens!

    As for the game, no idea when I'm going to get it, but at least now I am definitely going to get it instead of just maybe get it. I hope #49 is still available.

    That is not the attitude of a true captain. :P

    I know it won't have any benefits besides just visuals, but this is hockey. There needs to be a C and two A's. I would think the coach assigns the letters when people start joining the team. It wouldn't make sense for three out of the six players playing a game to have letters every time. And giving people letters makes the game fun. People on your team start to get out of hand, you can yell at them and be like, "HEY! I am the leader here, now listen to me. We need to think and play more like Sindy Crybaby. Everyone, press the dive button....now!" <img class=" title=":lol:" class="bbcode_smiley" />

    High 5.

    Seriously the fact that they sold out the Igloo during the cup finals for away games is great business, but it's pretty hilarious thinking about it.

    I probably won't get the game right away but if/when I do I'll definitely sign up with the hotsteppers. Maybe I'll make a huge (fat) Defenseman and call him Mark Madden.

    I wonder if he's still going to skate on a line with Crosby and Lemieux in training camp. :)

    Actually I want him back on the air since everything else pretty much sucks for sports talk radio. The only person I can tolerate is Scott Paulsen, but I can't stand Eddie Crow. I like Stan Savran too, but his radio shows are just too boring. Oh well. Plus the fact that Mark will talk about hockey predominantly really helps.

    I am totally in on this. Grabbing the game tomorrow after work. I'll most likely be playing D and will probably be a Defensive Defenseman. I call #8.

    #8? That is for Mark Recchi, right? RIGHT?!

    Actually mostly for my number in real hockey, though I guess I chose that because of Brent Burns heh.

    Ah, ok. That is fine then. Either you play real hockey or Recchi. My number is from when I used to play ice hockey.

    So is mine. I wanted #16 for Bobby Clarke but it was taken already so I chose #15 and it has been my number ever since, no matter what sport I play.

    I just arrived in Portland (I'm so lost) and am awaiting my stuff to arrive next week. But when it does, I'm taking my Sabres to the Cup (someone has to lead the charge, it might as well be me). Oh, and yea, I look forward to maybe meeting some of you ont he ice.

    OK, who is playing tomorrow afternoon with me since none of my friends are bums like me with no job? As soon as I get the game I am creating the team. I'm on the east coast.

    Holy shit! You actually went with the Hotsteppers! Awesome! <img class=" title=":lol:" class="bbcode_smiley" /> Too bad I won't be able to join in on this though. No Wii version. :x

    But there could be a hiccup to our plans. A quote from NeoGAF's NHL 09 thread that was apparently quoted from GameFAQ.
    I was looking at gamefaqs and someone said that your EASHL team logo selection is limited to NHL and AHL team logo...is that true?

    If this is the case, then I suggest going with the Calgary Flames logo to keep with the "hot" theme. Even better would be the Atlanta Flames logo, as it would make more sense with the A in "Arcade" that's in "Penny-Arcade".

    Off-topic: WTF is with EBGames? Used NHL 06 for PS2 and Xbox is $5, yet the Gamecube version is $15. BULLSHIT SHENANIGANS RIGHT THERE!

    I just want some hockey. :|

    Not Arcade, Arcadia. Great plan. You can be on the team in spirit. What do you want your position to be called? Team Marketing Manager? Haha.

    If you want a good NHL game for Wii/Gamecube, get one of the NHL Hitz games. That is the best you can do and it isn't to shabby because NHL Hitz is such a great series.

    Normally I'd be on in the afternoon with you, but the one day I have shit to do is the release date. I should be on by 5 central / 6 eastern though. :)

    I'll probably be mostly an evening guy starting Thursday. Thumbs up to the ATL Flames logo & Arcadia Hotsteppers. I'm ridiculously excited for this game...
