He said the demo includes the 3rd period of the stanley cup finals as part of the Battle for the Cup mode (DET/PIT), be a pro, and a short game with 2 minute periods.

Uncreditable source?
The only reason i would even SLIGHTLY belive this is because XBL Usually releases demo's on thursdays(Aug 20th) but i'm still not sold on it.

Unless they submitted it a while back and told MS "we would like a release on the following date". I mean, just because we are seeing a video advertising the demo now doesn't mean they only just compiled the final build of it.

Just glad BAP now involves being scouted and going through the draft.

So in BAP mode can you not choose what team you want to play for? Or is this moving up in the draft thing different to that?

BaP mode you can either play the prospect game, get ranked, and then get drafted OR skip the prospect game and just pick what team you want (like last year).

Not really true, EA does still have a say in it. EA completes work on the demo, submits to MS for approval (which usually takes ~3-4 weeks for a full game, so it's not that long for a Demo unless it was rejected) in which then EA decides when to make it available on Xbox Live.

The NHL 10 twitter says it hopes it is out this week, but I'm thinking it's more of hyping it.

I have to send my Xbox in for repairs just before the demos are going to be released.

I hope your source dude is right and it comes out August 20th for XBOX Live Gold.

Why does the demo come out earlier for XBOX and later for the PS3?
Not like it really matters for me because I got an XBOX. But I'm just wondering.

Last year the 09 demo was out a week earlier for PS3. All depends on the respective approval processes.

Nevertheless, I am so excited for the game/demo. This thursday would be so awesome!

If it's ready for xbox on a thursday the ps3 release will come at the same time. Last yr the nhl 09 demo went up for the ps3 2 weeks before the 360 because nhl 09 failed microsofts approval process.

Sony does not have a approval process. MS does because it's a paid service.

If it comes out this week, chances are none of you will see me till Monday lol.

I like the looks of the demo thus far, and it seems cruel that the game is still a month away.

When I play BAP I'm going to have a tough time picking what position to be. Goalie seems a lot better now that you actually get more then 10 shots a game. But I like being a D-men and just laying out people. And its fun being a power forward. Too hard to choose.

Didn't appeal to me at all in 09 but in NHL 10 BAP Defenseman is actually somewhat appealing since the 'most effective strategy' is getting it back to the point, the D actually get some scoring opportunities.
