As long as you don't run around spatting off racial slurs and talking about how many girls you've (never) had relations with, like many other teenagers do, all will be well.

I'm only 26 - far from being a grandpa. Just don't expect me to be up past 10

Ha, no way, I absolutely hate kids like that. And I don't stay up past 10 either.

Glad to see we're all in agreement.

One thing about me that you all will notice if you play NHL with me, is that I always come up with cheesy player names ... ranging typically from "Pete Zahut" to "Oliver Klothsoff" ...

Still trying to come up with a "facepalmer" name this year...

Bump, since the game is out today. My starting HUT team isn't too hot, no NHL forwards to start and Willie Mitchell with Zidlicky on defense. My "free" legend is Roenick and in the same pack I got Halak, but I don't want to use him till I have better players. Feel free to add Jovavic to your PSN friends and my HUT team is named ColumbusChill (no space), in case you can look it up and play against them when I'm offline

I got roenick as well. My teams NHLers are Ott, Erik Karlsson, Cory Schneider and Jonathan Quick.

I obviously bought other packs.

Did you do HUT in NHL11 and got your free pucks? I didn't, so I started at zero I don't know about using real world money to buy packs, a standard pack costs as much as that flatbread chicken thing at Taco Bell or Ranch chicken sandwich at Wendy's

XBL tag is EpicDegree. I haven't gotten NHL 12 yet, and probably won't until October sometime. I have to space my games out, so NHL will come between Gears of War 3 and MW3.

BTW, for all us "old guys" who don't like playing with the kids that scream or sing into the mic the entire game, check out http://www.2old2play.com. I almost gave up online gaming until I ran into this group, now they are almost the only ones I play with online. Must be 24 or over to join.

Played some last night. Game feels a little clunkier than 2010 (which is the last one I owned)... but it is still fun. Umberger on the load home screen is rad.

Arena announcer gives Methot the silent T treatment.

Also pronounces Voracek like it rhymes with Jurassic.

Get it right, EA. Call someone. Little things like that are just dumb to mess up. Its just laziness.

I played some EASHL online drop in games last night. Apparently there is some sort of correlation between the team that I'm on, and the team that loses...

My reviews so far:

- Be a Pro. I had the game crash on me, my first game. Lots of glitches and clunky feeling. The physics seem to be greatly overdone.

- My team AI, sucks. They ignore passes, don't move, and all in all suck.

- Goalie AI is better, but saw A LOT of trapezoid violations for some odd reason.

- Simulate to next shift, sometimes doesn't appear as a menu option...so I am forced to watch the game, until a whistle.

-EASHL Drop in games, are fun, and exciting. Played 3 or 4 of them, and they were good. Since everyone is still new, and people's Skillsets aren't blown out of the water yet.

Yep, usually there's a 48 hour window or so between the release of an NHL game, and when all the glitch goals are discovered and exploited.

I'm enjoying it while I can, and play all the offline stuff once online goes all to hell as it will.

Agree with you there. It will only take another week or two, until the online stuff starts to suck.

That is why I started my Be a Pro, already. I started in the CHL, on the Guelph Storm. With the ability to Simulate to your next shift, I got through about 3 games in the time it took me to play 1 game in NHL 11.

They need to do a roster update ASAP. I do NOT want Anton Stralman on my team.

Adding Prospal to the Jackets takes their offense from 80 to 85.

I haven't got the new one yet for my PS3 but a few weeks ago I was playing NHL10 and Chicago let me trade Commie for Dustin Byfuglien straight up and even added the comment "We almost feel bad for letting you make this trade" Uhhh ok. Also the Habs are tuned up to the point it's almost laughable. I could barely get the puck out of my zone. I know the game is produced by EA Canada but come'on! The Jackets move like they have lead skates on meanwhile the habs are going goal to goal in 2 seconds flat.

How much does the defense improve by losing Stralman
