Played NHL 13 with my friend this weekend (early ticket). The rosters are horrendous... Terribly inaccurate. They stoped updating July 9th and a lot of prospects aren't even in the game. Perhaps the most surprising error has to be not including the '12 draft class in be a gm mode.
For example, Ottawa's draft picks: Ceci, Maidens, Brassard etc. are still draft eligible players at the start of 12-13 season. So i hope there will be an update as soon as the game officially launches Tuesday.
Also a lot of the bingo players who left via UFA are still stuck there (Parrish, Lessard, etc.) and obviously none of the recently signed bingo bound players are not in the game yet, usually they enter in mid-october anyways (Blood, Wideman, Claesson, Schneider, etc).
With the early release game I've been playing, that's another notable thing I should bring up: injuries aren't as bad as they were in NHL 12... but they're still ****ing ridiculous. As Ottawa, within a few months my defensive pairings are this...
