The whole legends mode is terrible anyway and needs to be bulldozed and be redone with the model the NBA 2k series went with.
Absolutely. 2k's is awesome. Last year I was too bored to bother getting past Roenick.

Congratz to the ladies for being added as legends, don't mean to discriminate against them because they're women but Obviously EA won't give them an accurate 33 overall rating. Unfortunately could care less about the useless legends aspect of the game. I guess every NHL game needs their Sabrina Lahda or Bradley Cooper.

Gordie Howe without a helmet was epic.

They need more guys who didn't play in the 90s and 00s.

Wickenheiser never played in the SM-Liiga. It was a 3rd division league.

They're really using the Generic face for a ******* legend?

"I never realized the UNCANNY resemblance between Shawn Thornton, Brad Marchand, Tuukka Rask and Doug Gilmour before! Wow!"

Seriously, I'm so disgusted with the lack of real faces in this game. I get that they have to physically scan the guys and what not, but come on...they couldn't at least make an effort at making some sort of a resemblance to real life?

I find this to be a pretty major issue. I know a lot of people considering is petty and minor (and to some degree, in the context of the full game including gameplay, it can be argued), but to me it goes an astoundingly long way in making the experience far more authentic feeling. After all, the NHL team has always preached authenticity. Then why not put some resources towards getting something as basic as what players faces look like in real life? (end rant)

I never played with legends in the be-a-legend mode or be-a-pro mode, I always took the legends and put them on their teams and played Be-a-GM with them. It's a waste we only have three actual NHL legend additions this year.

If the women in this game break overall 50, that would be an embarrassment.

Who cares?

Women play hockey. As hard as that is to believe, there are women that also play video games. Whoa what about a woman that plays hockey AND video games? No ****ing way! Imagine for the first time ever, a woman gets to use her favourite hockey player, Hayley Wickenheiser in a video game.

Stop everything. This game needs to be removed from the realm of existence and cannot hit stores.

You guys *****ing about this are retarded. Probably the same group of people that *****ed about the legends being put into the game in the first place.

Only times I ever even came across legends was HUT. Legend mode sounded awful. I'll stick to EASHL for 95% of my NHL 13 gaming.

I'm not too against them being legends. I'm just thinking they should be overall 35-40 and 45

x1000

It's not like they are making them 99 OVR and adding them to the Leafs and Canadiens as their captains.

Who gives a crap?

It's just as realistic as Wayne Gretzky being in his prime in 2012 (read: Not remotely).

No, caring about them being included and being given a rating that makes them actually usable is an embarassment. They are only included in fantasy (i.e. not realistic/sim) modes anyways, so who cares?

I still like it more when the ratings are realistic. Sure it's a fantasy/unrealistic game mode but having them on par with the best of the nhl is just ridiculous.

I got a Lemieux in my first pack with only 5 career games

Then I got an Yzerman legends card later on that I sold on the market for a boatload.

So is time travelling Borje Salming and Gordie Howe in to the present. Maybe they should have made them 75 overall at highest to account for the fact that they would be slow and weak compared to even someone like, Colin Greening.

Hell Hayley Wickenheiser probably wouldn't even be too bad if she played in their times. Might have scored 20 goals in 1951 or so.
