They should bring the KHL back and add NCAA that would be epic. Also they should have Legends in Ultimate team. Like for Orr, Gretzky that would make it way better.

I know nobody read my long essay

Imma add to it......

they need to fix 2 problems at least in my view

1. sometimes I'll have a perfect chance for a breakaway and will point up and press pass only for the pass to go backwards. IDK why also sometimes my passes go to the wrong people. they need to make passing easier.

2. sometimes my guys look really stupid on the ice...have 3 people going after a puck handler.....or when im bringing the puck up one my teamates will skate into me and continue to do so....AI needs to be fixed for comp and ur team mates

i'll have more later

Don't worry I saw your list. Theres just so many more things wrong with NHL 11. At least there isn't any automatic goals like there use to be in NHL 09 the only thing close is the ******** face off deke to the net.

Of course, that means they'd have to include all the chants (particularly for BC games), and all of the little tournaments (Beanpot), too.

Gross.

But I'm not about to start a BC/BU flamefest when the Bruins are one win away from the SCF. We are all friends here (for the next couple weeks, anyway. After that, you suck.)

I hope there's a create-a-tournament. For years I've wanted to see what would happen in a "Potpot" ... New Hampshire, Vermont, Dartmouth, and Maine.

But seriously... the Big 10 Hockey Conference is finally starting, which has been one big joke within the college hockey community for years. Maybe NCAA hockey is on it's way too?

All those new features spell out "Time needed messing around with sliders before I am satisfied" Should be fun though. It's about time they brought in the WC but if it's only the Pens and Caps I shall be dissapoint.

Here's a video explaining the game


Note at the end of the video he says if you follow them on Facebook or Twitter there is a big announcement coming up. What could that be?

Here is the link to the EA Sports NHL Facebook
http://www.facebook.com/easportsnhl

This is a short article regarding the new Winter Classic play
http://kotaku.com/5803725/the-winter...-ea-sports-nhl

I can only imagine what the Bruins are going to look like with a higher salary cap and the addition by subtraction of certain players. I can only hope they don't wait til near the end of the season to update players stats like when Thomas had similar stats to backup goalies.
Last year's game was really good but the ratings were terrible and by terrible I'm not being picky here. When Mathias Weinhandl has better offensive stats than Crosby something is wrong. Or when players on the Japanese national team are better shooters than Lucic there is a problem.I'm worried that the addition of glass breaking and goalie fights will be bad because they will occur to often. I mean a goalie fight happens once a 2-3 times a year for the entire league and the Lucic glass breaking hit is the only one of those I can remember in ages.

Its funny when players who are black or dark skinned look weird.......like hockey games even the 2K series arent good at making non white players....least to me

and players who are from asia who dont even look asian

it would be better if every year they change the all star game location and the winter classic location in the game

I want them to incorporate training camps like they do in the NBA2k* series.

There's just so much unfulfilled potential.

I think you can turn down the frequency of these things in the options - same with penalties, so if you're in the Playoffs you could turn the frequency up or down, depending on how you feel

Now that our boys are in the SCF, we will probably get to play as them in the demo for NHL 12. The last few years the demo has just been playing the third period of the Stanley cup game. It will be interesting to see what our players will be rated overall compared to NHL 11.

My predictions:
Lucic 83->84
Krejci 83->84
Horton 84->85
Marchand 79->80/81
Bergeron 84->85
Seguin 78->80/81
Kelly 80->80
Peverley 80->81
Caron 76->77
Paille 80->80
Campbell 79->80
Thornton 75->76
Chara 89->88
Seidenberg 80->82/83
Kaberle 83->82
Boychuk 78->80
Ference 78->79
McQuaid 74->76/77
Kampfer 74->76/77
Thomas 90->89
Rask 84->84
The only reason I made Chara and Thomas a little worse was because of age and I did not include Recchi or Ryder because they should be gone.

Don't think college players will ever be in it. Even if they are you're 100% not getting names for them and will just have numbers which might not even be accurate.

Id like to see a better GM mode, theres no reason they can't make that top notch. Its not good enough for me to have to do games against the computer so I just play other people head to head.

So Ill probably buy it since Ill be able to rep the B's online. Seguin in Rex spot will be nice, I rarely use us in this years version bc I handle no Seguin. Didn't buy 10 because 09 had Lucic-Savard-Kessel as our top line in online play the whole time and I didn't want to play with a different B's team than that.

Love to think if we beat Vancouver we will be the best team in the game next year that all the cheap losers chose to play as. I won't play someone who picks Vancouver when I am bringing the Kings or Ducks, I refuse to I either quit or go select Russia and if they dont want to play Russia-Van with even ratings and chose Canada I quit out too.
