Mine is still "Preparing for Shipment" I didn't choose 1 day or two day shipping because I didn't know they would take for flipping ever on this crap. Now I can't even adjust it to tell them to hurry up. Complete crap that with free super saver they can't even ship a game by now.

Couldn't figure that out.
We are all still figuring it out, no worries bud.

We started to get better as we got used to everyone's style and really pushed the puck low. When we are struggling is when we are trying to carry into the zone and cut to the middle, that move want working for anyone. Stamp was taking it in the going to the lower corner and it was extremely effective.

We'll make sure to give pointers the next time we play so everyone can improve.

Well I gave up with Amazon. I cancelled my order and just went to Best buy since no way I wanted to miss out on playing it this weekend. Also I got surprised to find out controllers were on sale for 50 bucks so I picked one of those up too.

We need to speed up the passing, it's actually quite accurate if you practice enough. Is there a practice mode for the team?

Also we need to not chase as much in the defensive zone, force shots to the outside instead of trying to stop every shot.

Finally the best piece of advice (from Skaloper?); wingers must put pressure on in the offensive zone and force turnovers. Sitting back and stopping the breakout doesn't work.

That was Ice who pointed that out but it takes all three to be aggressive as only one or two pressuring still allows them an outlet. We also need to discuss what we are doing on two on ones. I found that last when I was on LW I was getting the puck too early for a shot but too late to make the pass back.

The only thing I can add is that if we have a guy cornered and there are two attacking frequently two people will attack the same side instead of one covering right and one covering left and this is often how they escape.

Sorry Iceman, good advice though.

Call for the passes on the mic when it's a good time to pass, I'll get a mic soon.

NHL 16 patch 1.03 is available now, weighing it at just over 2GB. According to the patch notes on the PlayStation 4, it improves online game performance and crash issues. If we get any additional details, we will update this post.
