Any thoughts to how the draft eligible prospects will be? they were horrible unless you edited them manually in 12. Im curious bc I've got six first rounders in my gm league and i hope there are players worth it

few things annoying me

The passing is still garbage, pretty sure weber can make a tape to tape pass to stamkos without him fumbling it...twice...in a row

peewee players can pivot better than these d man, they dump it in my dman takes 5 seconds to turn around and go at it, my winger beats him there

stickliftings useless ive gotten more penalties than checks

Is anyone going to start another PS3 GM Connected league since all the current ones are full?

They haven't been confirmed, so you could still get in there.

To piggy back on that, any idea how much it would be, I'd be shocked if it's gonna be free considering EA always tries to nickel and dime the consumer.

If it cost anything, I wouldn't be surprised.
If it didn't, I wouldn't be surprised.

EA used to charge for Ultimate Team, now its a feature.

I could see it being an addition with EA SPORTS SEASON TICKET.

Not too sure about the ratings, but this post early in the thread kinda applies:

And Vermette is 83 overall, just to confirm.


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)

I'm sorry, but this demo is complete dookie.

The aesthetics/physics of the skating really doesn't do much for me.

Goalies, I like how they move better now, except of the invisible force around them.(can't wait for goalie collisions to be a "new feature" again in nhl 14!)

Are players randomly flopping and diving for anyone else or was it just the Kings? It's like they would get tapped, take two steps, do a barrell roll and then roll on the ice. Looked absolutely moronic.

It's such a shame that NHL plays like complete garbage year after year, yet FIFA is probably the best sports game out there.

As a counter to this, I find the skating is very realistic and an improvement.. You actually feel the weight of the players and their momentum.. You can't just skate "up" and then press "down" to skate back to your end, actually turning with your momentum is faster than a start/stop...

Sorry to hear about your flopping.. Personally haven't seen this.

The presentation (cameras) look better, but the actual quality (possibly just in demo) is pretty low and seems choppy.

You did sell me on d/l'ing the Fifa demo to compare though!

I don't know about other people but I am having a hard time scoring after a dozen or so games. Not that that's a bad thing, quite liking this game.

Goalies are great.

Cut into the high slot, pull back wrister to wrong-hand side = goal 90% of the time.

EA needs to fix this, it's easier to execute than the curve shot.

I've played GM Connected, they actually look really really really good. Extremely accurate, EA really outdid themselves this year.
