Seriously could not have scored a better first goal for myself.

I know and I agree but Amazon E3 deals is worth disc swapping and its a game to reach the minimum since I know I'll purchase it.

I'll get it Tuesday during the day and practice my hand stretches so Im all ready to go Tuesday night.

You gotta work on the humor via forum posts my friend. You've had way more misses than hits lately.

Sign Nozdeuce up for the club as well, he will prob want #91. He can post in here if he wants another number.

Real talk: I won't be able to play till 8 PM on Tuesday. But at 8 PM EST, I'll be ready to go and play.

If you guys are already to go and want to make the team, by all means. If you want to wait, your call as well!

Ill make the club at the midnight launch when me, Delryk and anyone else is around will play our first games

Not sure if you saw my post awhile ago but Nozdeuce let me know he will be playing this year #91.

RS4 posted in the NHL 17 OP that hes not getting the game for awhile until it goes on sale

I will be around on Monday night for midnight mania, but after that, I will be AWOL most of the time for a little bit until the 22nd, unless you guys are up really late. Every year around this time I'm really swamped but I'll be home free to play during normal people hours after the 22nd.

Correct. Like spontaneous maintenance. But now we have a heads up about it!

Ugh. Amazon is telling me my order might not be shipping to me until the 22nd at the earliest. In which case, I'll just buy it tomorrow and return my copy.

Firmware updates havent caused connectivity problems in the past that I can remember.

Thats a bit of an overreaction which means you might qualify for a GAF Gold upgrade. I will PM the mods and have them judge your submission for "Hyperbole of the Month"

ggs Delryk and ph33nix. We played really well except for that 1st game.

After about 6 games here are some things that stood out to me in EASHL

+no pregame freezes yet
+skating feels lovely. Players have a weight to them but still handle like world class athletes
+speed is back in the game as a factor and combined with more realistic turning and accelerating defenders can get beat if their body position isnt correct. I got toasted as LD a number of times for not getting out of backskating earlier enough
+the outcomes of hits/physical contact seem to make sense more. No more getting crushed by stationary players with no momentum or sucked into hits when you get by a defender
+A.I. defenders are more aggressive in the neutral and defensive zones
+The Player Summary screen that appears in postgsme is a nice addition
+I didnt see the slapshot whiff animation or the one where you shoot for a one-timer but the puck never gets to you or you try to shoot a loose puck and get locked into a whiff shot animation
-the chop seems to work more reliably when you are at the right distances. I didnt whiff any behind the net in the defensive zone like I did in NHL16 almost 50% of the time

-goalies still give up a lot of bad angle shots from the corner or from along the goal line
-A.I. defenders are useless against easy to defend cross crease plays
-the offensive builds are too good on defense. I dominated on defense with the Offensive Defenseman and my seemingly only weakness was that I couldnt lay people out with hits

Ya except for that 1 game against crosscrease masters, most of our goals against were bad bounces off our D.. even if that means you Vis, theres no way its your fault. You're suppose to get in the lane and seems like the bounces into the net % is too high. Lol
