    Yes.

    Mike is getting a girl dog. They/we are going to check her out on Thursday. Then Mike will leave for vacation and I will purchase said dog before he does. I will then forbid my dog to hang out with his dog because we come from the other side of the tracks. And then one dog will poison itself and the other will stab itself. The end.

    If anything happens to anything in my house (including my dog) while you are watching it, I will murder you.

    P.S. What time will you be here Thursday?


    And that works, Franklin.

    And then we're off to segment 2! Woo!

    Don't forget that the trade deadline is once segment 1 concludes.

    Rockethania, can I have Sykora now? And why is no one coming after Spezza or Heatley?!

    I have come up with a new rule for myself while playing goalie. Do not celebrate the stoppage of a breakaway until after the whistle. Guy that I stoned passed to the front to fucking Crosby to take the lead (and the game). I wanted to shoot myself. Anyone else could've gotten that goal. But noooooo, had to be Crysby.

    I LOVE PLAYING GOALIE.

    Well, Frank beat me in the only appropriate way.

    With me ahead 2-1 in the 3rd, Brodeur passes the puck directly to his player (instead of the 4 Devils standing in front of him) and he scores to tie it.

    Then in OT, Brodeur, instead of making a save, deflects the puck back to his player, who then shoots it into the empty net.

    Thank you , EA awesomeness. And you wonder why I went from loving this game to hating it in a month.



    Nonetheless, great series, Frank. Pre-patch I think I take you down, but what can I say? You adjusted better and kicked my ass. Good luck in the finals.

    Pouches and I are looking to Hotstep. Anyone else want in in a bit?

    I think I am going to try out a new jersey for the team how we did with Atlanta and Philadelphia before.

    edit: Good games, WPiz. That last game was a little too close for comfort. Haha.

    I <3 playing goalie.

    It's official ... I suck on the PP but I'm a SH beast

    Cody, awesome job in net man, sorry we had to go to OT to finish that one off ... when I played with that schmuck on my wing i was a -2 ... he left and I was a +4 so I'll chalk this up to a big ole suck on his behalf ...

    And damn it was funny to see them skating around while I was behind the net like that

    Don't forget about this.

    Good to see they are actually using fighting the way it is meant to be used. And all of the chumps who do nothing but come into the offensive zone and stop at the hash marks and go back and forth until the AI Dman is horribly beat will be fucked for next year. One more step to making people play legit hockey.

    I dont know about this. Part of it makes hockey in a video game feel more like a video game. The other part seems like as long as you intimidate and keep the crowd in (home ice) or out of it(away team) your teams energy stays up and you play better. I guess we will have to wait and see when it comes out how much it effects the game.

    It is something that happens in real hockey. If the home team keeps getting pounded into the ground with hits, they either have to hit back or fight to get back into the game. If not, then it is their fault for not sticking up for themselves and each other and finishing their checks.

    Yes, that could possibly mess up the game, but remember that hitting guys away from the play means you are getting penalized. I could understand this ruining the game if we were playing pre-all patches since you could hit anything you wanted, whenever you wanted. Now? Penaltyfest 2009 if you don't behave.

    How about the Flyers-Penguins game 6.

    1st period the Flyers went up 3-0 and then Carcillo beat the shit out of Letang. Seconds later Malkin scored and the Pens went on to win easily while dominating the game.

    That is a good example of getting penalized for fighting at a dumb time.

    I'm pumped for the improved fan AI. Now they just need to get all the arena goals correct. That'd be sick...and the chants!

    From what I read from the article (and as you have pointed out), losing a fight won't hurt you really. It still gets your guys pumped, just not as much as winning a fight. It isn't like it is guaranteed to get you a goal after you fight because your team is so pumped (again, as you pointed out).

    Plus, you are talking about the Flyers. They always find a way to disappoint me.

    Im not saying it will ruin the game, I think its going to have to be one ofthose things we have to see when we play the game. It sounds awesome, but we have been disappointed before also..

    Sounds like another set of features for EA to screw up and laden with glitches.

    X amount of checks = Y amount of momentum boost = Z amount more to score/speed burst

    If they keep the penalties the way they are (every hit away from the puck = penalty) and maybe have three levels of hitting (to let the AI measure the significance of the impact), I think it will be fun.

    I remember they had something like this in the 2k series just as I stopped playing them. Anyone play 2k6+? They had something dealing with enforcers and stuff.

    I know, I am an idiot but meh. Haha.

    As long as we play each other and scarcely play randoms it should be fun. Remember how much fun EASHL was, Mackintosh? Yea, I remember your name. I am a good coach. 8-)

    But yea, we had fun times in EASHL. The thing that no one has tried (besides WPiz) with me yet is to play OTP so that it is basically just us. We could have 4 on 4 or whatever, with everyone player locking. Same thing as EASHL just using real NHL teams. No stat keeping, no nothing. Just good ol fun.

    (For those...well, for all of you since no one follows me on Twitter)...

    If this Caps-Pens Game 7 was a game in NHL 09, there would have been a rage quit right when that second goal was scored.
