My NHL Playoffs

So I'm in a league for NHL 2K11 on wii. It was a full 82 game schedule with 30 players. I know people might be asking "Why would a bad mf like you be playing a 2k game? And on wii?" I switched to 2k in '05, I just like the game play better. The graphics might not be as good. But that's about the only thing I think is better in the ea games. I don't care about all of their gimmicks and game modes. I just care about game play, and online capabilities. 2k isn't making a hockey game next year, but I'll deal with that in a few months. And the only reason I bought a wii is for the hockey game. I thought it would be way fun...and it is. 


Now for some season highlites........ Of course I was the Stars

I finished with a record of 56-18-8 for 120 points. I won the Pacific and got the 2nd seed in the West. Edmonton had 141 points winning the President's Trophy.

I made two trades. Niskanen for Goligosky, and Petersen for Brad Winchester.

Here's what my lines look like
