I'm starting to hate this game. I can't get the puck. Whenever I do, and make a pass, the computer ai instantly gets it. If I try to make a hit against the boards to free the puck, the player holds the other against the boards. The puck never stays on my stick long enough to go two steps. If I do manage to get the puck I either get a penalty or the period is over. Oh and goalies don't stop the puck from going in. They can't even stop a puck going 2 inches per year. One final thing, there is no way to win faceoffs, I've never won one since this game came out.
Sounds like you need to adjust your sliders in your favor a bit. Imo, it seems like the AI is extremely biased in their favor in offline modes. The ones that seem to make the biggest impact would be attribute effects and AI learning.
