Minnesota North Stars :shocked:

You have no idea how much I wish they would bring back that name and those jersey's. The damn NBA did it with the Charlotte Hornets.

Me too. That's who I grew up as a fan of.

For a math teacher your understanding of "three" is suspect.

I haven't played an NHL game since whatever version I had for the PS2, but I'm in. Sucking at a game didn't stop me from joining the Madden league, so why let it stop me now?

My heart says Blue Jackets, but I learned in Madden what happens when you choose a team with your heart, so my second choice would be my second favorite team, the Blackhawks. I see they have already been chosen, though. Unfortunately I hate a lot of the other top teams (e.g. Bruins, Penguins).

With Blackhawks out of play I think my three would be:

1) Dallas
2) Aneheim
3) Minnesota

You can use the Blackhawks, they're my team but I don't really care which team I use. Well, I won't use the Habs, Canucks or Senators.

I was about to question your sanity as any sane person wouldn't like the Canucks.

As for my teams:
1. Kings
2. Red Wings
3. Blues

Brilliant. Thanks!

Though I must admit the reason I chose the Blackhawks as one of my favorite teams as a new hockey fan:

My wife gave me that sweater for Christmas last year. :)

I changed my mind. Retro, you can go ahead and take the Blackhawks. I'll go with my humble Blue Jackets after all. It will be a good challenge trying to make a contender out of them.

FIRE!

Teach - Kings
HC - Avalanche
Jocko - Blue Jackets
Freak - Rangers
Retro - Blackhawks



Wish we could get one more, or even better 3 more.

Well here is what I am thinking. We play each other 3 times. The two teams with the worst records play a single head to head, loser is then out. The remaining 4 play (1st plays 4th, 2nd plays 3rd) single elimination.

Settings (Online Versus - Select "Play a Friend")

Rules - Custom
Period Length (I would prefer 10 minutes, but I'm guessing everyone would prefer 5 minutes.)
Fighting - On
Penalties - On
Injuries - On
Offsides - Delayed
Icing - Hybrid
Tie Break - Continuous OT
Goalie Mode - Off

Alright, time to start getting those games in.

Play each member 3 times, post all scores and results in this thread. Doesn't matter the order, if you play the same person 3 times in a row, go ahead.

If possible, it would be great to have games broadcast as well.

I thought don was in?

And do we really have to have fighting on? Such a waste of time.

You don't have to accept the fight.
