I always wondered why there were so few authentic player faces and why they were such terrible quality...Look at FIFA, there's hundreds of amazing players faces, why don't they do that in the NHL? I mean there's only 30 teams, at least make the faces for 15 better players..

This happens on so many breakaways. EA doesn't realize that this is the exception, not the norm. It even happens when the puck carrier is skating faster than the defender.

I want a PS Vita version, damnit.

I also want a 720/PS4 version this year so I have an excuse to buy a new console.

Also, please include NHL '94 playable on the disc like you did with NHL 06. After all, it is the 20th anniversary
I would do nasty things to get 94 w/online play.

I'm guessing we will probably see more during and after E3 which is next month. I am beyond excited to see what the new Be A Pro is like as well as the Enforcer engine.Does any other game (NFL, NBA , FIFA) have a be a pro where your player talks to media or interacts with other players? Are they taking this from another EA game or is it something new?

I really hope they fix the board play and the net play. The hitting as it is right now is horrible, yes. But the board play, and being held up at the front of the net when I need to chase a puck is what makes me turn the game off.

Yep. Stuff like that happens nearly every game I play. So dumb.

Not that they should take it out completely but it should take enormous amounts speed and acceleration into factor.

Its probably to late but If they want hitting to be most realistic, I think they need to add another attribute, maybe called "Critical Hit". Players like Kronwall and Oshie who generally dont give consistantly crushing blows would have high Critical hit rating and medium checking rating. Critical hit makes it so that you dont make big checks with slow plays, but if you line em up like Kronwall does and you catch em with speed, it will be a devistating hit.

Would make more sense for players to have seperate hit abilities. A guy like Lucic makes every hit hurt, a guy like Phaneuf is a little more selective where many of his regular hits are heavy but has an occasional massive hit. then theres the guys like callahan who finish all their checks but most often they arent heavy hits.

Also please can they make "size not matter". I dont want to see a guy like Bouwmeester crushing someone just because hes big, the guy almost never hits, he shouldnt be able to wreck me in the game. Same with guys like Kessel and Marleau. They can hit just because they are fast and have an average checking rating. Make the actual checking rating matter. Someone like Kessel should have like 70 checking and pretty much never hit anyone.

I'm pretty sure in like Madden 2004 Be a Pro was based out of your pro's house and you could interact with the press and upgrade your house when you made more money, get access to new training facilities etc etc. It was the best Be a Pro they've ever had and then the next year it was gone. I expect it to be like that one.

Also they need to fix the little things in this one, like D to D passes always going offside and the drop pass to the defenceman going past him and down the ice. Basically the defenceman in the offensive zone needs to be completely revamped as they are just terrible as is.

Made custom covers for Quick, Kovalchuk and Duchene.







The Kovalchuk one doesn't look that great in full size.

Can you print out custom covers and use them as a replacement cover?

Welcome to marketing 101 the fact you want to see it so bad means they are doing it right.
