Yes there is another way of removing them. All you have to do is send them to some random Swedish Elite league team, and your set.

I think the new skating is great and perfectly realistic. True Broadcast is awesome!! I love the speed boosts and momentum swings, but I'm having a lot of trouble scoring. 2 on 1's I feel are very hard to execute a pass and one-time it. Power Plays I'm having trouble setting up using the vision control feature. (Is there a trick to this, by the way?) Faceoffs are nearly impossible for me right now, what is the secret to winning one!!

Really looking forward to the GM connected, but I still don't understand how the scheduling will work. Do you just play whatever GM is online at that time? Do you have to always make your scheduled games?
The schedule is split up into blocks the size of the block is set by the commish. You can play any game in that block at ANY time until the commish advances to the next block.

So my demo is glitched out where in play now, the devils are replaced by the sharks but the shark logo is missing and whenever I start the match, it crashes... True story...

EA really needs to fix the pull back wrist shot in this game. You don't even have to curl it to score. Just walk into the slot, pull it back, and wrist it high glove side. It's a goal 90% of the time. You don't even have to be close to the net either.

I don't understand these comments like "who cares", "get over it." There are some parts of the game people do actually care about and are dissapointed with the changes made. For me, the addition of the legends last year was a huge reason I played the game, specifically HUT. When I'm opening packs that's what I'm hoping for the most, is to get a legends card. I don't think it will be the same this year now that they are only leaving three of the players and adding only five with Wickenheiser and the other female. I want to see as many legends as they can add to each game and I want to see actual legends, like Messier, Sakic, Forsberg, Hull, Orr, Leetch, etc.. I don't think that's too much to ask for from EA.

You know every year I ***** and moan about the game being disappointing, and I threaten to not buy it. This year I told myself, with the new "facelift" they were giving, if I can't put last year's game (however stale it was), beside this demo (let's face it, they aren't going to change that much before retail version), and come away saying I enjoyed playing it better I'm seriously not going to buy it.

I'll see you in Sept. '13 EA, where you'll just have made refinements of the same game, and hopefully it's fun to play then, I'll pull my wallet back out.

I'm legit excited to have Wickenheiser and Ruggiero in the game, to be totally honest. I think it's really cool.

Wish they would take current players out of the legends team. They're not legends yet.

Wish tehre was a novel way of removing them from the team.

The individual 'legends' have to agree to be used in the game each year. Reasons for them not being involved could be anything from financial, to not being bothered with it.

If it is purely a financial thing they could add them as paid for DLC which the legeneds would then get a cut of, if it's them not giving a **** there is nothing EA can do.

Even if they ask for an obscene amount of money then it's not going to happen either.

Blame can't be placed purely on EA for the lack of legend players.

I don't really see Gordie Howe holding out for more money.

I think the EA laziness excuse is far more likely.

do people actually not buy this game because the little tiny things? i mean i for one dont really like the new overlay very much especially with the controller ALWAYS vibrating. but ea could probably put a disc shaped piece of **** into a case and I would buy it. true hockey fan i guess

I'll downgrade Wickenheiser's attributes as soon as I turn my Xbox 360 on on 9/11.

They should put more time and effort towards other things... legends are useless

They say they are a small development teams and have limited funds, yet they spend time working on legends? Unacceptable

Online multiplayer dynasty are step one, step two should be historic roster

and not just one team with random stars from the past like they did with the Canadiens team in '09

Real rosters and not just stanley-cup winning teams, I'm talking full-blown rosters for every team since the start of the expansion era

We need the ability to re-create history, you know, start a dynasty or a be-a-pro in 1983 and work our way out

They can't limit us to 25-years dynasty

Then, they should do the same but with CHL and european leagues

Also try and include the KHL, NCAA and international tournaments like WJCs and Olympics
