Oh and Jesper Fast and Lindberg aren't in the game because they haven't played an NHL/AHL game yet and are coming from over-seas leagues (I think that's how it works.) Therefore EA can't put them in, legally. If they HAVE played AHL games then I'm not sure what the deal is.
IMHO, my hits are not reckless. It's always open ice neutral zone when the puck carrier is coming towards me (and I seem to time it well), when they're trying to do a move into the slot with the puck, or when they are coming down the boards. Once you get your hitting to around 80, it's not that hard to time it, but my agility/str are also quite high.
