I paid 15 cents for a two day Xbox Live Gold trial off of Ebay just to download the roster update. Did I mention I'm cheap.

Very cool guys, thanks for the heads up. I haven't been playing with them online too much because it drove me nuts to see the likes of York, Tenkrat, Chistov etc... Also might have to start another dynasty, even though I really like my current dynasty.

Are the rosters available for PS3. It tells me to check back later for updates. Any word?

I bought an xbox this summer, and was able to hook it up to my internet connection and had no problem getting the updates.

Rosters are available for PS3.

In order to download them you have to go online and play someone. Once you do that, a pop-up box will come up and say "You must download new rosters, would you like to accept" Click yes, and exit the lobby.

They added Lucic, Kane, Toews and others.

My only beef, when I downloaded the rosters I found NHL 2008 loaded a lot slower....once I deleted them, it went back to normal.

Let me know if you have that problem.
Thanks,

We have a thread for a NHL09 league team...or "Online Dynasty"...

I'd show you the thread but I'm too lazy.

Any Bruins fans want to play on a "club" for NHL '09 on PS3?

I play as Dennis Wideman.
My buddy had been a D-man but is trying out Looch and may change his mind.
All my other friends have xbox... lame.

Let me know, it's a lot of fun.

Found this in the stickied thread (board links), and seeing how it was bumped up from NHL 08 to NHL 09, I thought I would bring up NHL 10

I'm sure most of you have heard about the new "Be a GM" mode. It looks pretty cool: http://www.operationsports.com/videoview.php?id=456

Sept. 15th release date...I can't wait any longer!!!

Yeah, this game is going to be great. The thing I'm waiting for in video games is player specific styles and movements. As of now, all the players skate and shoot the same. How amazing would it be to fly down the ice with Ovechkin and have him skate and shoot exactly how he does. It would also be awesome to throw some massive hits with Lucic's skating style.

I also want to see each little nuance of every stadium represented. From music to crowd chants, I want each stadium to be different. It would be great to be in Atlanta and have the strobe light on the goaltender after a goal. Every real goal song should be there as well.

I know it would never happen, but I would like to hear different announcers for each home game. How awesome would it be to play at home with the Bruins and have Jack and Brick do the home games. It would never happen but I think team specific broadcasts would be amazing for each team.

Anyways, this new game is going to be awesome. Hopefully the first person fighting works well. I'm also excited for the after the whistle shenanigans.

I'm not a huge video game fan, but the NHL series really is something else. Last year's game was nearly flawless and NHL10 is looking to do some things I never thought I'd see in a sports game - very excited.

I would love to see these games be able to select your play by play announcer and color analyst.

They started doing something like this with FIFA you could download other commentator packs, I guess its just a matter of time and money for this to be a reality.

I get the feeling that Jack Edwards would not only refuse to leave the recording booth until he was done telling us what he really thinks of Sean Avery, but that he would also be the most highly-downloaded commentator in the game
