    That game was great, Moody. I don't know how you and the computer didn't score at least 3 in regulation. Here are the stats of our OTP game against 2-3 randoms (Puffy got booted):

    Shots
    20 (bos - them) 29 (min - us)

    Time on Attack
    8:02 (bos) 6:32 (min)

    Power Plays
    1/1 (bos) 1/4 (min)

    Goals
    Lucic (bos) Koivu (min)

    Shootout
    About 12 rounds. Kim Johnsson with the winner. Min wins shootout 3-2.

    P.S. I was goalie the whole game. We were up 1-0 with about 5 minutes left and Bos got a power play and scored. Was kind of weak imo (on my part as goalie), but oh well. Stopped some good barrages throughout the game. Stopped a nice one with 1 second left in regulation. I was forced by the game to both shoot and play goalie in the shootout. Moody had to watch.

    OTP is the way to go nowadays. No one does the cheap wrister and all that jazz.

    edit:

    Apparently Kotaku knows something we don't.

    Of course, EA has slightly more worthwhile gameplay improvement planned for NHL 10, including bobble passes, scrums, and the option to one-time loose pucks, three things that illustrate how out of touch I am with the sport of hockey. Other additions include an all-new board physics engine, 360° precision passing mechanic and the ability to shoot while kneeling.

    I already call this as the one thing that gets exploited ala curve shot. Read the whole article here.

    They also say there are scrums now in the game. I really hope they have it implemented like the old 2k games. Go to the boards and hit O (ps2) to man up against the boards. Once held up against the boards, you can 1) kick the puck left or right, 2) elbow the players who are leaning on you, 3) stop scruming and try to grab the puck and head out.

    I guess that means people get knocked down differently. I am glad they will have battles along the boards. This way they can make dumping the puck in an actual useful strategy and making checking from behind a better, more consistent penalty.

    Fail. I am commish here, I am commish there. Good try though. ;-)

    I just thought you might want someone who knew what they were doing running the show. I'm sure it will be a good try through ;)

    Nah, I was just playin. I figured you'd wanna commish.

    P.S. I'm also commish here, actually. The EA IS AWESOME league is much superior to the Lord Tycho League because our playoffs will work (possibly).

    I predict me (CHI) defeating CCF in 6 games, because I am consistent and that is how I rolled all playoffs.

    You have no chemistry whatsoever in net. :P

    Plus, getting booted every game doesn't bode well for you playing. Haha.

    I am a fine goalie. And it isn't my fault that EA boots me because they know my skill makes the teams lopsided in our favor.

    CCF... When is game time!?

    EA IS AWESOME News:

    Okay, guys. We definately need to get going here. From 4/13 - 4/30 we played 85 games. In 18 days in May, we've played just 7, which leaves 18 left to go in segment one.

    I'm going to be on vacation (again) from Friday to Monday. I'd like to begin segment two in the middle of next week at the latest. If you aren't making any progress with your remaining games, you will get the boot. I know some of you are trying to set up games and that is fine, but 7 games in 18 days is pretty bad.

    The league spreadsheet is updated so check out who you have to play and lets get movin along.


    PS Moody, check your trade offers. Also, if you wanna talk about a bigger scale trade with Spezza or Heatley in it, let me know. I'm interested.
