Every NHL game sounds good in theory but the execution is always lacking. I never get too excited about the new NHL game anymore. Too bad they haven't even come close to simulating hockey as well as they do football in the Madden series.
For good old time hockey check out www.nhl94.com
If you havent tried NHL 07 on the 360, there is really nothing like it. The skating is terrible, but if that can be fixed it will easily be the best hockey game ever.
Alright, this is pretty creepy.
There were only 28 teams this '06-'07 season, a team or two folded and a few new ones came in, and some affiliations got moved around. Hopefully EA's NHL '08 uses this New line up of 29 teams, sounds like they will.}

http://forums.ea.com/mboards/thread....hreadID=234631Each NHL franchise will be unveiling their own uniforms sometime between now and the beginning of next season. We already have them in game, but cannot release them before each team does. The disc will contain the new jerseys, but communications up until that point will be the old versions.
1) I am sick of goals that trickle in past the goalie. That will be fixed, so no worries.http://blogs.ign.com/EANHL08/2007/06/12/57267/4) In the defensive zone, you CPU teammates will also play better positional hockey and because of the new 1:1 Skill Stick feature, you might want to play positional defense too and not step up on the puck carrier every time. We have also added new defensive controls and actions, which the CPU players will also be using.
