It's an NHL player exclusive game or something.

I believe he was taking part in the Rookie Showcase event when EA was there showing NHL 13. Yakupov, Knight, etc got a copy too.

Yeah, I think a lot of people have gotten it already. 2BC Productions has it too.

I'm so jelly.

trust the video game section of the board to not know a common rule like offside . Looks like some people spent a little too much time playing with the rules off over the years

And Prospects in the 2013 draft are appropriate. Example: Mackinnon is the best player, all potential first rounders are first rounders (Shinkaruk, Monahan, Lazar, Morrissey)
Ya tyson barrie is my neighbor and he got the copy so me and Yandle Bars got to play the game for a good 6hrs, the potential thing is very wierd its all in "stars" instead of letters gold stars are like the best, than silver is average(C to B-) and red is lowest potential.(C- or lower)

Is there any difference between the manual power skate *holding down RS right away* as opposed to letting him auto-powerskate? (happens a couple seconds after you start skating in a straight line not pressing RS)

Same thing, but it's stars for potential and color for likelihood.

He has it. He posted a picture of it on Facebook, he's just not allowed to make videos until the game is out.

Also, I'm surprised that Bobby Orr isn't in the game as a Legend yet.

Wow even the "Gold" pack is garbage this year too. A whole lot of crap for 240 MS points.

AND no Salary Cap now too!!???? Part of the reason that HUT is waaaaay better than MUT and FUT in my opinion, is that there (was) an actual degree of management required. You couldn't just run 4 lines of elite NHLers, 3 Norris caliber D pairs, and have a Vezina goalie. You had to mix in combinations of lower salary/caliber NHLers and CHLers. You had to apply your training cards wisely because you needed to maximize the amount of games played with your boosted players before their cap hit went up.

Now i can just scratch my *** and build a mega team with no consequences. Way to go EA

So that's why he did the farewell video today for NHL 12 I see. I imagine there won't be many videos for the next few days with Johnny having NHL 13 now. So close to release, I can't wait!

Oh well they got an email from a 14 year old girl....


NOW I get why "Legends" include two Midget AA calibre players, Doug Gilmour (who nobody in NHL 1994 lined up to play as), and Hasek who was in the game like 2 years ago.

I should send them an email saying I'm underrepresented. Maybe they'll include me, my Bantam AAA linemate and Wendel Clark in NHL 14.

If these are "Legends", I can't wait to play 250 BAP games in NHL 14 to unlock Owen Nolan.

Or just fire up a game like NBA 2k12 or MLB the Show where you just automatically have players like Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Nolan Ryan to play around with for the hell of it.

If the kiddies demand it, who is EA to deny them? Sad reality we live in.

What exactly does chemistry do in HUT? Also, if players no longer have a "potential" rating in HUT, does that mean that young stars like Hall and RNH will stay at their low 80's overalls forever (except for the one game you use a consumable)? Seems like that will defeat the purpose of buying and developing prospects (Ryan Murray is only a 74, for example).

I havent played hut in nhl 12 because of the carreers, so I like the news. My only concern is that people might create and then delete their team at the beginning to get players like crosby or ovechkin from the starting pack..

If Gretzky is slated as a 95, the best woman in the history of hockey should be around 20, right?

So you think she's anywhere close to Dustin Penner in real life?

Her having better stats than him is a joke, just the usual political correctness.

The best woman in the world couldn't cut it in OHL - and the worst player in OHL isn't anywhere close to Dustin Penner.

Wickenheizer should be around 25 at most.
