New Blog where I'll post some tips as they become available, and will eventually used to post weekly thoughts and figure out when the best time for everyone to play will be: Fine it here. It's not much yet, but it'll be a decent meeting point as we start moving along
JOIN THE TEAM ON PS3!!!

EDITED SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 5th:
Hello there; First a little background. NHL 11, Much like NHL 10, NHL 11 will include an online team mode. That is to say, you pick a position and play it all game while other human players play their respective positions. Last year, me and Michaeltastic played a bit on the xbox 360, but I think we'll be playing on the Playstation this year.
Long story short, I was wondering if there were any people on this site that had a PS3 and were interested in making a team with us. I haven't confirmed this with Michaeltastic, but I'm sure he'll be up for it. He's pretty good at scoring and I'm pretty good at defense so overall we're pretty flexible, and it could be a fun experience. If anyone's interested, reply here, and we'll try to get something together when the game comes out next Tuesday.
The Unofficial Roster After the Jump
Here's the Team so far. If you want in, leave a comment in stating what position you think you're best at. If you're not really that sure, guess and we'll figure out. Fortunately I'm a pretty decent in front of the net center and faceoff winner (though I'm much better at defense) , and Michaeltastic is an excellent passing and shooting forward (but can switch to defense if necessary), so we should be able to move around enough to make a decent team.
TEAM SO FAR:
Michaeltastic: Forward (Winger, right?) (Right Handed; Short Stature)
Greatpaperclip: Right Defense (Left Handed, Short Stature)
MinnesotaRoyal: Winger (Unsure; Unsure)
Other notes: I'm not sure if we need a goalie, but that is by far the toughest position to play. Me and Michaeltastic have very little experience here, but I think I can do it if it's necessary. If possible, I'd like to just have a team of five and let the computer handle goaltending.
There will be an adjustment period where me and Michaeltastic have to figure out what is different. Michaeltastic was an amazing up the side to center passer, and if we can get away with that our scoring should be ok. I will have to figure out the new physics and figure out how much biting into the offensive zone will hurt us. What this means is there might be a few weeks where me and Michaeltastic just play around before we start playing team games. If you want to play, you can always join us by friending us (more on that later) and that way we could learn to mesh.
If there are any more questions, I'll answer them in the comments
