I think I've hit that proverbial wall when it comes to playing this game. Love my hockey but starting off another Dynasty Mode 2016 is not holding my attention very well. Think either today or next couple of days will be turning this game along with my NCAA 12 and use as a down payment toward the new and supposedly revamped NCAA 13 College Football game coming out soon from what I'm hearing. I'm debating whether to get the Madden series as I haven't played that since it left the Pc version. From everything I've heard it hasn't fared well so I'll have to do some more research and what everyone thinks of it. I just did order the Baseball Mogul 13 for my computer to keep me busy when I have any downtime. I do a lot of Umpiring so downtime is few and far between this time of year. What's everyone else hearing about the NCAA 13 and and any changes or upgrades for the NHL 13 coming out Sept.11th?

The Blue Jays bounce back after losing the first two games of the series against the Angels with a 3-0 win behind a strong outing from Kyle Drabek. Jays pitchers scattered 10 hits in the shutout.

Yunel Escobar homered in the 6th to give the Jays a 1-0 lead. Kelly Johnson followed with a solo shot in the 7th and J.P. Arencibia capped the scoring with a solo shot in the 8th.

Once again the Jays struggled to get hits and are last in the AL in batting with a team average of .231 while the team ERA continues to go down. It is now 5.02.

Spring Training is winding down. A boatload of moves were made. Out of the "original Tigers", only Verlander, Fister, Schlereth, Alburquerque, and Valverde remain of the pitchers. Most of the position players are the same, though.

There were a couple late cuts, but they still have a chance of an in-season call up. They will definitely be here in September (Reed Johnson and Collin Balester). Relatively speaking, Randy Choate and Brad Lidge are on short leashes. In many of their short outings, they have not been up to par. If they aren't of any benefit, they will either be sent down or traded.

I don't expect problems with the rotation. However, any injury will make things dicy.

The offense is spectacular, despite being thin. Once again, no injuries please! Miguel Tejada is supposed to be for emergency only.

In terms of upgrades, Andre Ethier is better than Brennan Boesch; I just hope that I don't regret the trade down the road. I'll take Michael Morse over Delmon Young because of his flexibility on both sides of the ball. Ian Kinsler adds an element to a previously non-existent running game, in addition to being a better-fielding 2nd baseman. Geovany Soto can serve as a platoon hitter and also give some relief to Alex Avila behind the plate.

So, here's to a great season ahead!

Well, this was my first completed dynasty on NHL12. We won 20 stanley cups, in large part due to our captain for 17 seasons, Teemu Laatikainen's ability to shut down opposing scoring lines, as well as providing offence himself.

Will do some bio's on the players who weren't retired at the end of the 25 year cycle, for others, I created a stats page showing the "top" players career statistics.

Note: Bottom 3 players are defencemen, which is why they aren't in order with the forwards.

Joseph Reese903648149106


Defence:
My Washington Team was built off of defence, with my 3 d-pairings being so deep, that I averaged less than 2 goals against per game each season for the last 17 years of the Dynasty.

D - Teemu Laatikainen
Finnish. Drafted in 2013 by myself 3rd overall, continued to play until the game ended in 2036, at age 41 (Lidstrom style). 6'1", 197 lbs. Never a physically imposing defenceman, his positioning was never matched and he finished probably +2000 in his career, with numerous seasons of +120 hockey (I played a lot of games, which helped). He became the captain in 2017, and never gave it up for the rest of the GM Mode. Best Defenceman I've ever drafted. Was a 99 overall for 10 seasons of his career. 12 time Norris winner.

D - Jason Quirk
Canadian. Selected 1st overall in 2024, as the teams only franchise player (got one in 2035, but he only played 1 season), quickly became Laatikainens Defence Partner. Standing at 6'2", 198 lbs, he was much faster than Teemu, he did most of the puck carrying, and his bomb from the point made him and Laatikainen the most dangerous threat on a very dangerous team. was a 99 overall for 5 years

D - Hannu Viitanen
Finnish. Selected 2nd overall in 2021 by the Capitals. Playing on the 2nd line his entire career, with country-man and team veteran, Kai Kurvinen, he became a dominant force. At 6'4", 214 lbs, he was always one of the biggest defencemen on the team, and his offensive stats were high 90's quickly in his career. Could have been one of the best ever, if not for Quirk and Laatikainen.

D - Kai Kurvinen
Finnish. The last of my teams legendary defencemen, was the 14th overall pick in 2012. at 6'7", 210 lbs, he was very fast for a man of his size, and his slap shot was usually the best on the team (Viitanen and Quirk eventually overtook him in this regard) I didn't get to save his stats, but he had over 800 points in a 18 year NHL career.

Honourable defence mentions: Bobby Aduono (26), Brian Craig (21), Lawrence Staal (22), Eddie Gelech (23). These players couldn't finish their careers, as they were drafted too late, but all would have been eventually "retired" as well.

Forwards: Early on, I built my team with Alex Ovechkin (never saved stats, 800+ goals though), Ryan Kesler, and
Claude Giroux, followed by 3 lines of prospects. Eventually after a disapointing season, I completely blew up the forward core for a 2nd time, and wound up with the following players:

C - Niko Louhivaara
Finnish. Drafted 6th overall in 2015, Niko, as he was known, was immediately billed as the next great forward in the NHL. Forced into the NHL at a young 18 years old, I probably didn't develop him as well early on as I'd hoped. for his first 7 NHL seasons, he never had over 64 points. But at the age of 26, he exploded onto the scene with 112 points. At one point, in his early 30's, after Ovechkin retired, he carried the team offensively, with 4 straight years of 60 goals, followed by one with 48 before 2 more with 60. Was expected to be the 3rd Captain in Franchise history under my GM-ship, but Laatikainen never retired, and in 2035, Niko did.

RW - Taylor Burke
Canadian. Was taken 1st overall in 2014 by the Bruins, but at the age of 23, was playing in the AHL still, with less than 25 games in the NHL. I traded for him, as he fit the mold of players I was looking for when i blew the line-up apart the 2nd time. For 7 seasons, he was the main offensive force of the 2nd line, producing over a point per game in 5 of the 7 seasons. After Ovechkins retirement, he moved to the top line, continuing to produce 100-115 points per season. In 2034, he had 156 points, by far a career high. He retired after the 2035 season with Niko and Tangradi, "The Line" was the dominantoffensive force behind the teams 20 stanley cups, so when they all retired within 2 seasons, it left the team with huge gaps to fill.

LW - Leonard Tangradi
Canadian. Brought in as a UFA, he quickly became Alex Ovechkin's set-up man, winning numerous Art Ross's, when Burke wasn't winning them. Left the team for 3 seasons at age 34-36 because he wanted too much money, but returned at age 37 to play with Niko and Burke once again. That was his last season in a relatively short career, but one that was extremely productive.

LW - Daniel Laperriere
Canadian. At 6'3" 209 lbs, he was the biggest top 6 forward I ever drafted, and played as though he was 6'5". He only played top line for the 3 seasons Tangradi was gone, as well as the final season, when the team's veterans had to replace all the retired stars. A pure goal scorer, he used great speed as his biggest weapon, and was probably the fastest player on a very fast team.

C - Zach Elliott
American. 6'3, 212 lbs. another very fast player who had the best slap shot of any of my forwards, he struggled as a center and spent many seasons on the wing. Played a few years as a 3rd line player as well, yet still put up 30 goals per season. Was unfortunate that he joined the team when the forward position was it's strongest, but still found a way to produce.

RW - Emmanuel Papineau
Canadian. 6'2, 208 lbs. The most creative player I've had in NHL 12. Perhaps the best passer in the history of the NHL (not the most assists, but a terrific passer), he used his abilities to deke defenders and shoot the puck, combined with his passing, to win 3 Art Ross trophies. First player I patiently developed, made his NHL debut at 21, but didn't play a full season until he was 22. Having to stop using him with about 12 years left in his career is probably my most upsetting NHL 12 experience.
Honourable Mentions for forwards: Marko Louhi (31), Brock Rycroft (34), Eric Doig (33), Vince Urquhart (35), Bryce Neil (28), Nelson Weal (37) and Cole Peluso (retired). These players were the role players who brought me the cups. Every good team has good depth, and this is where mine came from (year are the guys who played numerous seasons with me)

Goaltending:


Every champion team, has a champion Goalie.

G - Joseph Reese
Signed as a 22 year old UFA, he won the Conn Smythe trophy the season before he won the Calder. Replaced Steve Mason as a goaltender, eventually won over 600 games and had over 100 shutouts. But in the playoffs is where he did his best work. 257 career playoff wins, Probably a .940% career save percentage in the playoffs, he rarely let in over 1 goal in the post season. Allowed a strong team to win numerous Cups. Was instrumental in the teams best ever season. Won 6 Vezina Trophies.

Honourable Mention: Scott Langkow (30). Brought in to be a back-up to Reese, signed an 8 year deal at 21 years old for $1.250 million, and was an affordable back-up until Reese retired after the 2034. 211 Career wins in 317 career games.

DYNASTY HIGHLIGHTS:
While my team won numerous individual and team trophies, the greatest achievement ever came in the 2031-32 season.

This season, we went 82-0-0 in the Regular Season with Reese playing in 52 games, while Langkow played 30. I played about 50 games of this season, and there were some OT scares, but managed to pull through each time.

We scored 411 goals that year, while only allowing 147 against. This led to Tangradi's high contract demands, and having to trade a bunch of long time players, but it was well worth it, as in the playoffs, we also went 16-0. Total season: 98-0-0.

The next season, we came back to earth, going 46-30-6 with all the moves I had to make to make the cap.

Anyways, hope you enjoyed my team.

02:23 PM - May 7, 2012. Written by Bloop33
This is my Boston Bruins team, which is still ongoing. I started this GM Mode in January after I reached the end of the 25 seasons with my Washington Capitals Dynasty.

Most recent roster updates and statistics can be found here:
http://www.operationsports.com/Bloop33/blog/18028-boston-bruins-2030-31-season-1st-roster-statistic-update/

For this team, I built a team with 4 lines that can score, and has big bodies on forward, in contrast to my Washington team who was built defensively and who's biggest forward (that wasn't a 4th liner being replaced year to year) was 6'3", 205lbs. So far, we've won 4 Stanley cups, but team defence has cost us a chance at probably 5 others.

The season is the 2029-30 season, currently 2 games into the 2nd playoff round vs. the New York Islanders. I will introduce the team as if everyone was healthy (which they are not).

Note: A lot of these players weren't drafted by me, I had to shed cap space and traded some veterans for these players when they were in juniors or the AHL, so they are developed by myself.

Line-Up:

Line 1:

LW - Joe Tyrell.
Playmaker, 94 overall.
33 years old, 6'2", 184 lbs. Born in Austria.
Drafted 13th overall in 2015 by the Anaheim Ducks.
984 Career Games Played, 267 Career Goals, 882 Career Points.
- Strong Dangler but is probably the best passer in the league now, not too physically imposing but uses his shifty-ness to create opportunities for himself and his linemates. One of the most respected players in the league.

C - Danny Wilm.
Sniper, 92 overall.
30 years old, 6'1", 188 lbs. Born in Canada.
Drafted 2nd overall in 2018 by the Tampa Bay Lightning.
776 Career Games Played, 260 Career Goals, 590 Career Points.
- Late Bloomer, was rotting in Tampa's farm system, didn't make his NHL debut until the age of 22 with the Bruins, quickly became the #1 center. Sakic-like wrist shot, coupled with great hands. Always a threat to put it in the net.

RW - Jamie Baron.
Sniper, 82 overall.
24 years old, 6'2", 199 lbs. Born in Canada.
Drafted 28th overall in 2025 by the New York Islanders.
203 Career Games Played, 47 Career goals, 92 Career Points.
- Young player who took a few seasons to develop, career threatened by injuries numerous times. Uses his body and speed to create opportunities on the rush. Future 40 goal scorer in the league.

Line 2:

LW - Cameron Callahan.
Sniper, 91 overall.
31 years old, 5'11", 185 lbs. Born in Canada.
Franchise Player, Drafted 1st overall in 2018 by the Boston Bruins.
928 Career Games Played, 364 Career Goals, 673 Career Points.
- Under Achieving forward offensively, was billed as a Franchise player, but almost 1000 games into his career, has a career high 65 points in 1 season. Great defensively though, much stronger than his size indicates.

C - Brad Stokes
Playmaker, 87 overall.
26 years old, 5'10", 180lbs. Born in Canada.
Drafted 17th overall in 2022 by the Florida Panthers.
325 Career Games Played, 72 Career Goals, 224 Career Points.
- Small 2nd line centerman, held out from signing a contract last season, but has come back and put up career high totals. While his size hinders what he can do around the net, he is a great set up man, gets a lot of assists from behind the net.

RW - Colin Meldere
Sniper, 81 overall.
24 years old, 6'4", 222 lbs. Born in the USA.
Drafted 44th overall in 2024 by the Buffalo Sabres.
246 Career Games Played, 26 Career Goals, 72 Career Points.
- Acquired in a cap freeing deal, has added more size and speed to the bottom 6. Not overly productive at this stage of his career, but looks poised to develop into a top 9 forward when the time comes I need to promote someone to replace a veteran.

Line 3:

LW - Trevor Klee
Power Forward, 83 overall.
23 years old, 6'4", 235 lbs. Born in Canada.
Drafted 71st overall in 2025 by the Boston Bruins.
251 Career Games Played, 43 Career Goals, 96 Career Points.
- My best 3rd round pick as GM of Boston, took 2 seasons to develop in the AHL, is a huge physical presence and destined to one day be a top 2 line player, to create space for some smaller line-mates. The Fan favourite in Boston, brings a level of tenacity that few teams in the league can match.

C - Carson Perreaux
Playmaker, 84 overall.
35 years old, 6'3", 186 lbs. Born in Canada.
Drafted 104th overall in 2013 by the Washington Capitals.
784 Career Games Played, 77 Career Goals, 212 Career Points.
- Defensive Specialist, a free agent signing brought in to be an affordable, playable replacement for Kenneth Brind'Amour. Good puck control and passing ability allow him to be a solid 2 way player, but his defensive and athletic make him a standout in his own zone.

LW - Steve Bordson
Sniper, 88 overall.
27 years old, 6'4", 221 lbs. Born in Canada.
Drafted 2nd overall in 2021 by the Boston Bruins.
564 Career Games Played, 126 Career Goals, 272 Career Points.
- Huge and Physical. Struggled when entering the league, spent 2 seasons in the AHL after his rookie season, but came back more physical than before and earned a spot in the bottom 6. Can fill in on top 2 lines like no problem. Great power forward type player, fan favourite in Boston.

Line 4:

LW - Topi Kerman
Tough Guy, 80 overall.
33 years old, 6'3", 236 lbs. Born in Finland.
Undrafted.
8 Career Games Played, 1 Career Goal, 3 Career Points.
-In the 2030 off-season, because of cap problems, I had to hire some cheap players who can be effective. Topi Kerman is a big body who will be a good enforcer in games when he needs to be. Not a problem in his own end, solid 4th liner.

C - Shannon Cracknell
Sniper, 81 overall.
30 years old, 6'3", 215 lbs. Born in the USA.
Drafted 1st overall in 2019 by the Boston Bruins.
530 Career Games Played, 85 Career Goals, 195 Career Points.
- After high hopes when drafting him 1st overall, he did not develop into the superstar center I was hoping for, and was traded away. Next season though, he was put on waivers and re-claimed, and filled in as a 4th line centerman playing a checking role. Has settled in nicely and helps the team toughness and speed.

RW - William Carrier
Two-Way Forward, 79 overall.
35 years old, 6'2", 208 lbs. Born in Canada.
Drafted 122nd overall in 2014 by the Los Angeles Kings.
150 Career Games Played, 25 Career Goals, 52 Career Points.
- Another cheap veteran player I signed to play a bottom 6 role and defend well. Has decnt size and speed, but most importantly is great defensively. Defensive Star on the 4th line with two big linemates.

Defensive Pair 1:

LD - Casey Fast
Defensive Defenceman, 91 overall.
32 years old, 6'2", 199 lbs. Born in Canada.
Drafted 1st overall in 2016 by the Boston Bruins.
1,145 Career Games Played, 51 Career Goals, 208 Career Points.
- The definition of shut-down defenceman has a picture of Casey Fast beside it. Played in the NHL since being drafted in 2016, has become the best shut-down man in the NHL. Has a hard slap shot, earning him a spot on the Power Play after the offensive guys were traded for cap room. Career High 29 points in the past season. Should finish career with 1500+ Games.

RD - Phil Hartnell
Defensive Defenceman, 91 overall.
25 years old, 6'2", 200 lbs. Born in Canada.
Drafted 4th overall in 2023 by the New York Islanders.
518 Career Games Played, 32 Career Goals, 194 Career Points.
- Started his career as a puck rushing defenceman, playing on a line with Kyle Kantor (to be introduced). When placed with Casey Fast, became much more defensive and has really become a nice fit as a shut down guy. Still has offensive upside, but has eased up a bit on risky plays.

Defensive Pair 2:

LD - Alexei Dadonov
Defensive Defenceman, 89 overall.
25 years old, 6'6", 224 lbs. Born in Russia.
Drafted 2nd overall in 2024 by the Los Angeles Kings.
251 Career Games Played, 3 Career Goals, 68 Career Points.
- Originally brought in as a 20 year old prospect to eventually play with Andrei Kulemin (traded OFD), has become one of the biggest physical forces in the NHL. Little to no offensive upside, but so good defensively that the puck is rarely in the zone when he is on the ice. Biggest NHL regular on the team.

RD - Kyle Kantor
Two-Way Defenceman, 92 overall.
33 years old, 6'3", 210 lbs. Born in the USA.
Drafted 1st overall in 2015 by the Boston Bruins.
1,039 Career Games Played, 72 Career Goals, 385 Career Points.
- Late bloomer, didn't make his NHL debut until 23 years old. Served as captain for 3 seasons, and has helped develop some of the best defencemen in the league (Hartnell, Dadonov, Kulemin, etc.). Decent offensive force, but is better suited to a role where he is paired with an inexperienced d-man who is prone to make mistakes. Great at covering up for teammates mistakes.

Defensive Pair 3:


LD - Johan Persson
Two-Way Defenseman, 84 overall.
33 years old, 6'2", 209 lbs. Born in Sweden.
Drafted 42nd overall in 2016 by the Columbus Blue Jackets.
216 Career Games Played, 9 Career Goals, 29 Career Points.
- With the big overhaul making the team stronger defensively with the retirement of Yuri Smirnov, Persson was acquired in the deal that sent Ruslan Khavanov and Jacques Poirier away. Very good in his own end, possesses a decent slap shot. Great in his own zone, good at covering when forwards get caught on the counter attack

RD - Tuomo Makkonen

Defensive Defenceman, 90 overall.
31 years old, 6'2", 192 lbs. Born in Finland.
Drafted 67th overall in 2018 by the San Jose Sharks.
661 Career Games Played, 27 Career Goals, 147 Career Points.
- Originally picked up as a 20 year old, he played with the Bruins for 6 seasons before being traded to relieve cap pressure on the team. Re-Acquired for 91 overall goaltender, Par Moller, this season, he brings a complete defensive game, great speed and strength, and also a very slap shot. Can play on the top line if needed.

Goaltending:

Starter - Calle Moller
Butterfly Goalie, 88 overall.
26 years old, 6'3", 209 lbs. Born in Sweden.
Drafted 18th overall in 2023 by the New York Rangers.
75 Career Games Played, 40 Career Wins, 8 Career Shutouts.
- After holding out on his contract last season, I decided to go for the bigger Calle Moller as my starter, while parting away with his brother Par Moller. His size allows him to be a strong butterfly goalie. More sound positionally than Par, he doesn't make many spectacular saves for the team.

Back-Up - Samu Lehtivouri
Hybrid Goalie, 80 overall.
28 years old, 6'4", 206 lbs. Born in Finland.
Drafted 176th overall in 2021 by the Montreal Canadiens.
5 Career Games Played, 4 Career Wins, 0 Career Shutouts.
- Solid back-up, will be able to start in 15-20 games this season. Decided to go with a veteran with good poise (85) over a rookie in net. Affordable, will not be too upset if he has a .400% winning percentage.

Game 24 vs. MIA

The Tigers came into this one looking for revenge against the Marlins. In an earlier Spring Training matchup, the Marlins came away with a 1-0 victory. Just like the first game, offense started early. To lead off the 2nd, Prince Fielder muscled a solo home run to left. Geovany Soto had a solo home run of his own in the 3rd.

However, the Marlins put things together in the 4th. Hanley Ramirez and Giancarlo Stanton had back to back hits. Logan Morrison followed up with a 3 run blast.

Edward Mujica relieved Mark Buehrle. After a quiet inning for the Tigers, Miguel Cabrera doubled in Ian Kinsler who singled earlier in the 6th. Prince Fielder followed with an RBI double off the wall. Victor Martinez touched them all to clear the bases.

Al Alburquerque relieved a somewhat ineffective Brandon Beachy and had a perfect 7th inning. On the other side, Steve Cishek came in to relieve Mujica, but he surrendered a solo shot to Jhonny Peralta.

Joaquin Benoit followed Alburquerque. He allowed a run when Giancarlo Stanton doubled in Jose Reyes. Jose Valverde shut the door on the Marlins.

Game 25 @ HOU

After a quiet 1st, Michael Morse led off the 2nd with a solo home run. More power followed when Miguel Cabrera homered in the 3rd.

Jordan Zimmerman made it through the lineup once without giving up a hit. Jose Altuve led off the 4th with a single. Carlos Lee singled home Altuve, giving the Astros their first run.

Reliever Lucas Harrell found himself in trouble during the 6th. Fielder doubled, then Morse doubled off the wall, and pinch hitter Andre Ethier drove in Fielder with a sacrifice fly.

Prince Fielder homered to lead off the 8th to extend the lead. However, the Astros put pressure on the Tigers bullpen in the bottom of the inning. Brad Lidge surrendered a hit to the only batter he faced. Scott Downs did his job by striking out the only batter he faced.

In his Tigers debut, Mark Melancon came on afterwards and loaded the bases. Jed Lowrie scored on a sacrifice fly from JD Martinez. Jose Altuve was caught stealing to end the inning.

With Melancon still on, Carlos Lee struck out in the bottom of the ninth. Randy Choate retired the lefty that he faced. Jose Valverde came on for the one-out save.
