Puck Daddy, I am not. Down Goes Brown, I am definitely not. Nonetheless here's my attempt at hockey humour with a feature wish list for EA Sports NHL 13.

It should be...in the game!

No. It's not.

It's fun, but I want the real thing back.

Last Saturday I started (and continued yesterday) simming an NHL playoff mode on NHL 13 in Superstar mode to watch some hockey. I've actually been surprisingly entertained. Had to take breaks to actually play sometimes but I've been having fun.

I play it and don't even notice the NHL is gone half the time. The players don't whine on Twitter after either.

I think it's more like seeing your ex-girlfriend who dumped you

No, because I suck at NHL games. I was good (or so I like to imagine) before they started using the joysticks for skating, back when shooting was as simple as hitting the "square" button and you could abuse speed boost.

I play NHL alot every year and this is actually the year where i've played no where close to the amount i have before.

Probably 1/3 the time i'd normally play. No NHL has me in a lull for hockey

NHL 13 blows so i stopped playing a while ago, Its got all the same faults the previous titles have and BAGM is impossibly stupid.

Black Ops 2 is my solace.

And the NFL.

I read/watch hockey history stuff (couldn't during the previous lockout, no youtube) and play NHL 2004 PC (new mod, 96/97 season mod, and a couple others). Really enjoy the 96 mod, good old days.

I really like NHL 13's gameplay. They somehow keep screwing BAGM though, not sure how after so many years you can make the mode less and less immersive.

From the article, I most enjoyed "Ryan Kesler Dive Mode". Which mode would you like to try out, would it be available?

From the article, be nice to give Celebrity NHL CBA Mediator a whirl.

Toronto Maple Leafs mode: No matter how good your team looks on paper, your team will be first in the East after the first 10 games then manage to get a lottery pick no matter what you do. Fan base will celebrate regardless of disappointment year after year, making you the richest franchise in the NHL.

After the first month of the lockout, I went and bought a playstation 3 and the NHL13 game. I'm 40 and haven't played computer type games since I was in my 20s.

I had to buy a different controller because the PS3 controller was killing my left thumb. But now, I can play more often with the smaller controller.

GREAT game!

It pisses me off when every year I have to go in and edit almost every prospect and create a ton more. Example: In '12, McDonagh was a 79 overall. In '13, RNH is an 81, Chris Kreider is a 69 and so is Granlund, and Brodin isn't even in the game and he was last year. Every year the prospects aren't NHL ready until 24 or 25. Even the first overalls. And the trades are whacked up. So naturally, I have to fix this before I start my simulation of the 2012-2013 season.

Have to agree. For us sticklers, be nice if they spent more time on this angle. Added to the serious EA Sports NHL 13 wishlist. Be nice as well, if someone like yourself goes through the trouble of making all the updates, if you could upload it for others to take advantage.
