Yeah, I find it to be some sort of misguided and ineffective pandering. In an NHL game I would like to play with the best possible players, neither of these women fit that bill. I mean come on, little Phaneuf could take Wickenheiser out of the play three years ago.

a) who cares...edit: you clearly do
b) might attract more girls to try out the game (ones that play hockey); more money for EA
c) who cares

in conclusion, who cares?

I'm not sexist but I just like to say sexist things/believe female athletes are 4ever inferior to the mens.

Seriously, does anyone really care that much about the legends? I think it's ****ing cool that they're including some women hockey players. And it'll help draw more girls to the (video) game...And maybe to the actual sport.

Exactly. The two women are deserving of legend-type ratings as long as they're playing against women. I think it's really unrealistic to have Haley Wickenheiser on the same level as Anze Kopitar (assuming she's a mid-80).

I've defended the game for a while and I have NHL 13 pre-ordered. The legends idea was a good one. However, the way they constructed it was stupid. Basically, the more you play in your Be a Pro, the more legends you unlock and can use them in a Be a Pro career (against current players). I agree with whoever said they need to aim the mode more at Jordan Mode, although it's a lot easier to do in an NBA franchise.

People actually think women is the game will appeal for more women to buy the game? I think putting in Bobby Orr and Pavel Bure would result in more sales. I think for a women, they will either buy the game or not. They won't really care if there's a female legend in the game.

While the two women are deserving, I could care less if Rory Fitzpatrick was a legend; I am not even going to touch that mode. There's HUT, Be a GM, and EASHL which are time consuming and actually very fun.

I apologize if this was already answered, but does anyone know if you can add custom music, goal horns, and goal songs to the game? I'm particularly interested in uploading custom horns to each arena because it bugs me that EA can never seem to get them right...

Yes you can. I have been using custom goal horns since NHL 11 and the reason they said they can't get them right is a licensing issue.

Am I the only person in NHL where the coach would only let 3 lines rotate and the other one get zero ice time?

nope my 4th line would rarely see the ice. I would run 3 lines and if all 3 were in the yellow only then I would put the 4th line out. Also I put them out in the dying seconds of any period

NHL 11 was the best NHL game for gameplay, in my opinion.

Something I'm very concerned about...As I'm finding in Madden, there is no longer any kind of Season/Franchise/Playoff Mode in the game. Just a simple season mode to casually play offline vs the CPU that have been a staple of sports games for over a decade. They seem to be out. All just because of all of this Connected stuff? I find that incredibly unfair to those who like to play Playoff Modes ON THE SAME CONSOLE with their friends OFFLINE, as well as simple 1 player Franchise mode.

If NHL is the same thing, and judging by the demo modes, it is, then I'm seriously bummed.

things that own: women being included in a video game fantasy team

things that also own in a similar, but fundamentally opposite way: most of the posts in this thread

No Lindros, Bure, Sakic, Foresberg, Stevens, Hull, Orr, Mikita, Hull, Fedorov, Kariya, Coffee, or Messier? But they add two people who've never played in the NHL before....

Awesome. Ever think that a lot of us play HUT and were looking forward to having a lot better legends in the game? We were waiting for this list since last year at around this time, only to be severely disappointed...again.

I don't like the inclusion of TWO women on the legends team. Who cares?/Get over it!

Typical "why do you even care responses" too. Gotta love those.

I don't think people realize that the player in question would have to give their explicit permission to use their likeness in a video game.

This is why, despite the rest of the Dream Team being in NBA 2k13, Scottie Pippen is not.

So, instead of jumping through hoops to try to get players to get on board(which they have probably done with some of these guys for years), they decided to break a few barriers of their own.

Grow up. Get over it. Quit acting like(ironically) little girls.

You know, when you make your game out to the most realistic hockey game ever made... and putting them on the "Legends" team... well, whatever. Anyone with a brain can see this was a bad idea.

I wonder if that wonderful, little "Tropes vs. Women in games" thing had any influence on EA. Nah, couldn't be! These women are LEGENDS in the NHL! Should've been in when NHL 12 first came out!

EDIT: IIRC you could create them in NHL 12, but I've never made one nor have I seen any in my online exploits. The fact that they put these women on the NHL Legends team is pretty insulting.
