Having the ability to bring players up and down from the minors to replace injured players and give players a chance to win a job by actually seeing their on ice performance is awesome.
The AHL will also be going to the new RBK Edge uniform system and we will have these jerseys in our game. They will be available with a code which we will provide when the game ships in September.
The new bidding system allows the CPU to compete with the user in signing players to their franchise. So unless you are willing to overpay for a player by a large amount the player is aware of who is offering him a contract and will take that into account and make a decision based on all the factors he cares about. The players are pretty smart and take their time to make the right decision for themselves. When you put in a bid the player will usually make his decision within a few days giving himself more time to have the bidding go up.
Ever wanted to see a franchise player like a Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin show up in a draft? We have added that into this year’s game. Look out for the franchise player during your scouting.
Hmm. It doesn't look like they've come up with the "Overall" rating yet for each player.
This is what the NHL 08 Thread in the Computers/Tech board.
And yeah, as usual EA underrated the Kings and overrated the east coast teams.
our team has no poise!
dan cloutier's 5-hole is an 80? more like N/A!
NHL 07 ALWAYS made tanguay get over 130 points EVERY season. no matter WHERE you put him and no matter WHERE you put his teamates. i hope this game isn't that stupid again. and i REALLY hope these friggen goalies can make a few saves once in awhile........having a 3.21 GAA for the best goalie in the league really isn't that fun.
