I have played around 15 games but I get bored really easily playing with the AI.

I actually have 2 going.

First is a Sniper Center playing for the Blue Jackets. Thought it was realistic as the Jackets really are in need of a true number 1 center and would draft someone like my player. About 10 games into the season already been called up to the Jackets due to injuries to both Rick Nash & Jiri Novotny. So both Derrick Brassard and I got called up. Currently playing on 3rd line.

Second is a defensive dman playing for the Capitals(drafted). Just got called up today before playing my last game. Think I had about 15 games in with Hersey. Seem to have more fun playing d then with my center. Currently on 3rd line.

Overall seems way to easy to move up the lines/teams. Think it'd be more realistic if your BAP player wasn't rated 78-79.

Are you guys playing with line changes are doing it like your online character where you played with him for the entire 60 minutes (other than if you take a penalty of course).

Once I decided to change to Darik Tracos, I've decided to completely change everything and therefor end up in a new BAP. So here's the new situation Darik is in.

Player Info:
Name: Darik Tracos
Height: 5'11
Weight: 175 lbs
Position: RW
Style: Dangler

Be a Pro Settings:
Difficulty: All-Star
Organization: Buffalo Sabres ('drafted')
Season Expectations:
- 28 goals (Well on my way)
- 60 points (22 right now, so I should be ok.)
- 180 shots (I've taken a very good share of shots.)
- 25 assists (This, like my last BAP, could be problematic.)

Career Update (Sept 14):
I've been ripping it up with Darik in the AHL. 6 games in and he's racked up 19 goals and 3 assists for 22 points. I executed some cheeseness here and there and some puck hogging and empty net hogging, but a guy's gotta do what he's gotta do haha =P. Just got promoted to the 2nd line in Portland I hope to move on from there.

I'm a goalie

I played a game as a LW first though. Personally, even though I like the realistic line changes, I didn't like it because I had to play as another player when I was resting. I think that was my settings though. I think the choices are Authentic, something, and something. I forgot what I chose but if I could watch from the bench during my rest, I'd choose whatever option that is. I like it to be realistic.

I think Authentic would achieve that. I chose Authentic for my goalie and I only play the games I start which is awesome. When I chose the other, I had to play with the other goalie and I didn't like that. If I'm playing, I want to only build my guy up.

Yes, I play with line changes (I think it's called "Authentic" in the game settings when you set it up.) I like sitting on the bench watching my team play as my lungs recoup, it's so sim!
But when I'm all "green" again, I press that X button and get myself on the ice.
