this game is horrid 83ovr team skating circles around gretzky,messier ,lemieux this game is trash holy doo doo the 82 players better then the 90 rated lol team gets smoked even with synergies fb and sp its like not even fun to get the good players cuz they dont even move lol
I've stop playing hut for this reason because of the EA magic unfortunately there are no other companies that have a hockey game so I bought 20 thinking it would be a good game well I guess joke is on me ,so after playing hut spending some money and seeing that EA doesn't really care about fixing this game I went on to play VS it's actually better than hut still have those weird games but I find in my opinion there's less of the EA nonsense
I have 66-11-99 on my top line and no 80-87 is outskating them. The only card I've seen blow by one of them is the 89 mcdavid...and I'm ok with that because that card is a sick card.
The ai does dumb stuff, but my top rated cards are not being outskated, and their puck retention and shots are top notch. Are you sure you are actually using these cards?
And it is a lot more fun for me to use icons then base cards, but that's just me.

I'd say maybe you're just playing too aggressively and tiring out your players. Or maybe you're experiencing latency which would give you the feeling of being slower. Or maybe, it's one of those "EA games" where nothing seems to go right when your team was rolling smoothly a few games ago (you know those...)
Don't bother posting any videos of your play, trust me you'll just get frustrated.
I see two choices; either try to grind it out and learn how you can best utilize your team strengths and weaknesses or quit.
It's still early in the game's lifecycle so you never know what could potentially happen a few weeks or months down the line. Also, just because you have the "best" players doesn't mean they are suited for your style of play. I used to beat people with the Ottawa Senators (still do) in VS. and they were the worst team in the game arguably.
Try to change things up. Just because it works for the Twitch big shots, doesn't mean the same thing will work for you.
And if it doesn't, well maybe this game's not for you. There are plenty of other games to play. I did.

So is mine. And yet sometimes, people get paired with someone that's too far away, or the opponent has a bad connection (wi-fi?). At that point, even if you have a 500/200 Fiber optics connection you pay 150$ a month for, you're gonna lag.
As for the players you have, you know they're NOT the actual players right? They're just attributes thrown together and the game tries to make them play up to those attributes. But they'll never have the same insight, style or Hockey IQ those real life players had. Gretzky in this game doesn't really play like Gretzky did in real life. Same with Lemieux, Messier, Lafleur... In this game they're just numbers with stats. But they do have certain strengths that you can use.
Also, let me tell you about a little team called the NY Rangers back in the 1996-97 Season. They were STACKED with amazing players including: Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier, Adam Graves, Niklas Sundstrom, Brian Leetch, Luc Robitaille, Alexei Kovalev, Ulf Samuelsson, Russ Courtnall, Esa Tikkanen, Glenn Healy, Mike Richter... They got 4th place in the East that year and got ousted in the 3rd round of the playoffs. The following year with roughly the same team, they didn't even make the playoffs. Same thing the following year.
Having the best players (best cards) in the game means nothing if you can't take advantage of them. If you have Gretzky, Lemieux, Messier, but you try to play them like Marner, Marchand, Draisaitl, chances are that's not gonna work out well for you.
Gretzky is a playmaker (passer). Lemieux is a sniper (scorer) and Messier is a grinder. Figure it out.
