I really hate the hitting on default. On normal, there are fewer big hits, but the ones that do occur makes sense. I get quite frustrated when small guys like Gionta and Marty St. Louis can take out guys who outweigh them by 50 lbs with ease. I still remember the first game of the first block, when Desharnais took out Grossmann, and then Gionta wrecked both Pronger and Schenn on the same shift.

I don't think that these settings discourage creative game play. It is more difficult to connect passes, and the loose puck dekes are far more realistic on "normal" (you can't do them at full speed with any but the most elite danglers), but default allows hustle-snips and rebound shots with a lot more ease. Seems to me that they cancel them out.

That said, my games have also seemed low scoring, so perhaps it is something that we need to figure out.
once people get used to it I feel like the games will be higher scoring. Default feels so fake and "arcadey" that it shouldn't be played on. You can still be creative as yesterday in my game against Jack, Kessel did a nice little quick deke, and set up Gagner for a goal. This setting is much better than default and I don't know how people can support that kind of gameplay setting.
