How are these guys rated higher than Sykora? He should be a 78-79 not a 69 IMO

Your prospects and players are rated lower than you would like, but higher than fans of other teams think they should be.

so far i absolutely hate the new skating system. i understand they are trying to simulate how players accelerate differently but when you switch to a defender and hold the control stick down for a couple seconds and they barely start to move, it's a bit of overkill. my online games seem to be tons of odd man rushes back and forth. maybe i'm not used to it yet (hardly played the demo and then got the early release) but passing seems really inaccurate and haphazard.

and the AI doesn't seem to have been updated at all? or at least in the ways it needed to be? still have AI players making all sorts of idiotic decisions in all three zones. just lost an online game as the B's because AI seidenberg decided to just skate out of the d zone when he was the last man back on a 2 on 1. what?

i'm hoping these are just glitches in the early release and they will at least be patched in the final version, because on my first half dozen plays it feels like EA took one step forward and two steps back with this game.

So, I really hate the sim engine. The scoring is so woefully off it's saddening. For example, here are James Sheppard's goal totals the past two years:

19, 27

By comparison, here are Phil Kessel and Steven Stamkos' goal totals the past two years:

17, 20
13 (in 56 games), 19

And here is a(n incomplete) list of players James Sheppard outscored in the 2014 season:

Vincent Lecavalier
Evgeni Malkin
Claude Giroux
Milan Michalek
Ilya Kovalchuk (tied)
Rick Nash (tied)
Pacioretty
Parise (tied)
Zetterberg
Datsyuk
Benn
Duchene (tied)
Hossa
Toews
Sharp
Patrick Kane
Evander Kane
Eric Staal
Jordan Staal (tied)
Vanek
Seguin

All of whom played full or nearly-full seasons.

Jesus Christ, EA.

Edit: Milan Lucic also finished 2nd in the Richard race in year #2. With 38 goals.

Holy overrated. Gaunce might be a 3rd line checking center for Vancouver in a couple years..

Elite 1st line center after one year in NHL13. Genius.

1) stick lifting still sucks. This guy went AFK and he was standing by the boards with the puck. Just like the past two EA NHL games, I can stick lift him constantly and never get the puck.

2) shot accuracy seems a bit too low IMHO. I do like that some shots miss the net but I feel like half my slappers go wide and too mantid my wrist shots are missing the net

LOL looking at player potentials so far, it looks like by years 2/3 the whole nhl is gonna be full of 85 + overall guys -.-. Once it comes to signing all these players, every gm is gonna get into contract hell

So the engine is just as bad if not worse than 12? WTF EA??? They totally lied to us again, false advertising. Why the hell is it so hard to make this realistic? This is a HUGE deal and something that no other sports game seems to have an issue with. How come the sim engine and stats are so true to life in NBA 2K or MLB The Show, hell even Madden? NHL is the only game that has this issue and every single time the fans state that it's important it be addressed, it somehow manages to be even worse.

I've heard the trade engine is just as bad.

It's gotten to be quite a joke by now and really takes away from an otherwise great game

We ask for better and more realistic potential and instead we get this. Always has to be something messed up....
