My first Be A GM season, so far...

I am playing the games on Pro, which I find, so far, to be as difficult as the hardest level last year. My Canucks are 5-4-1. Schneider has 4 of the 5 wins and David Booth has 10 goals in 10 games. Mayson Raymond seems to be pretty effective, too, at least at creating chances.

I love the challenge I am getting from the CPU this year. It is better, so far, than any other NHL game I have ever played and I have bought the game every year since NHL Hockey '92. Way harder to score... harder to defend... and for me, no glitches yet!

Try buying players for cheap, use them for a few games and sell them high.

Am I the only one that finds the Gagner moment next to impossible to complete?

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

You know, when I played Pro I had more trouble than I had on Superstar in NHL 13. I seem to find it easier to play Superstar than Pro, lol.

Go for the premium gold jumbo's. Even though they're $2.79 you get some really nice pieces sometimes. For example yesterday I got Curtis Glencross, Sean Couturier, Jakub Voracek and Maxime Talbot all in the same pack.

What if I don't plan on spending real money on it?

And i'm not the greatest player either so I can't win games on superstar

In HUT I was beating a guy 3-2, with 5.6 seconds left, I lose connection and I get credited with the loss :picard:


Weird, I never lose connection. Maybe once, but that was on the release day.

I lost connection every now and then in 12. But this is the first time that I got credited with the loss after losing connection.

It makes no sense.
In NHL 12 Superstar was way harder than Pro. Pro you could get 10+ goals if you were good enough.
Superstar it wasn't that easy(unless you were top corner cheesing).

NHL 13 Pro the goalies make all these ridiculous saves and it's usually hard enough to get 4 or 5 goals. Superstar I've been getting 4+ goals regularly.

Yea I've only been playing superstar since the demo since pro is far too hard to score. It was the other way around for me in 12.

This may slightly be because I'm a Devils fan, but Brodeur should be rated higher. He may be old and close to retiring, but why degrade his rating? He still puts up the same numbers he used to. He still makes the same phenomenal saves he used to.

82 just seems like crap for a goalie like him.

I haven't even tried Superstar yet because I am having a good challenge with Pro. Seems like a lot of you guys say that Superstar seems easier. I'll switch over tomorrow and get back to you. Superstar was pretty easy last year once you got used to it, but, it was WAY harder than Pro.

Thanks for the hints, folks!

i just wanted to say that i play versus a lot and i'm surprised how good dubnyk is in this game in versus. i play as NYI all my games but this goalie is the only one that stands on his head, i can solve luongo, schneider, etc etc but dubnyk is a wall.

Took your advice for trying to get Sbisa. Threw a lot at ANA, and they weren't willing to give him up.

And Varlamov has been a beast for me. Despite a 8-7-1 record, he has a 2.16 GAA and a 0.931 SV%.

Had 8900 pucks from discarding scraps from jumbo packs and sold 3 cards for a combined 3000 pucks so I ended up with 11,900 pucks. With that I picked up Patrice Bergeron as my second line center for 10K. It was a little more than I wanted to spend but Bergeron is worth it. I want to try and get a 1st line LW so I can put Horton with Bergeron and Ladd for chemistry.

With money being a bit tight right now with me moving at the end of the week, I was only able to pick up NHL13 today, and to me, its the little things that are blowing my mind right now. My first goal I scored, Henrik recieved a breakaway pass when already at the top of the faceoff circle, and as I let go of the left stick, he actually dug his skates in to the ice to control his speed and allow just enough time to pull it to the back hand and tuck it home. The graphics look like a work of art!

anyone else think the Devils are the worst managed team in NHL 13? when I played Be a pro for them they have 60s playing then I asked for a trade when I was 88 and they got 2 AHLers in return. All they seem to do is keep Kovalchuck and proceed to have a fire sale in my game

They always trade Brodeur, Elias, and most of their defence man. Usually all before the 10 game mark of the first season.

Couldnt find a active NHL 12 thread, but i have a question about NHL 12(I just bought it for $10 2 weeks ago). I started playing be a gm and after the 2014 draft when i go to resign players it says i have 0 under contract and i have -199455633 unsigned. It won't let me resign my players. Does anyone know how to get around this bug?
