Second season, I made some big moves to become more competitive and had a monstrous start (something like 28-10-2) and finished 17th overall (which again, is BS as I previously stated).
Just started my 3rd season last night, going in with the following roster:
Hall (88) - RNH (88) - Yakupov (84)
Bartschi (85) - Staal (85) - Eberle (85)
MPS (80) - Dubinsky (84) - Callahan (83)
Eager (74) - Lander (76) - Aliu (78)
Petry (87) - Whitney (86)
Leddy (84) - Schultz (84)
Morissey (83) - Plante (78)
Guess what my record so far this season is?
5-4-1... so a worse start than prior years despite improving in goal (Dubnyk -> Bernier) and my young guys receiving a bump in their OV's.
wonder if an improved goalie affects the game results more than a better scoring lineup. The settings your team rolls with also affects results.

I'm serious when I say this, I think Craig Anderson is the hardest goalie to score on in the game.
The goalies are unreal, but I love it. It makes the game much more interesting and challenging as well.
I think i'll try that... hopefully I improve. It reallllly changes the game when you dominate the play...
