You do need XBOX Live gold.

I guess in a few days anyone can get it. Life is so unfair.

Someone who has the demo should make a list of all the goalie ratings, I'm curious.

Well, can't wait for the game. I was impressed with NHL 11, as there were less glitches and whatnot when it came to team play. Hope it stays that way with 12.

Gretzky 88 potential 90
Bourque 86 potential 88
Mario 90 potential 92
Salming 85 potential 87
Howe 88 potential 90
Chelios 86 potential 88
Yzerman 87 potential 89
Roy 93 potential 95
Roenick 88 potential 90

My first try at an NHL cover. Bourque seemed appropriate.

Seidenberg [83] Kaberle [84]
Ference [83] McQuaid [81]
Hnidy [78]

Thomas [89]
Rask [84]
Boychuk, McQuaid, and Ference all seem a little high. Unless there is a ton of stat inflation going on, because according to that the Bruins don't have a single 70-79 overall player, which is odd.

Also lol at Luongo being higher than Thomas. I guess that's what we get for the NHL series being made in Vancouver.

The Bruins Defense is rated something crazy like 95.

Is anyone gonna buy this?

I don't know if I will, I played the demo and it seems the same, I might wait a day and see how what people say about it, not sure, however I did play the madden12 demo and it's great.

I'm not canceling my pre-order. It's largely the same, but I like the adjustments they made. Especially the defensive AI and Be A Pro mode.

ya, I haven't gotten a new one since 09 so that alone makes it worth it, add in the fact it's the one after the bruins won the cup and it's a no brainer

True. I wish they had all the winter classics added not just one, that would be a cool addition.

The biggest thing that I liked in 11 that was different from 10 was the cap geek that was added in be a gm mode, hopefully they add a few more nice upgrades.
