My biggest pet peeve is a SUPERSTAR not performing as they should, given their overall. Backstrom is horrible when simming. finishes the season with 22 goals and 20 assists.
On top of that, why is Crosby only 28 years old with C- potential and at overall 85(while continuously dropping and still sucking, getting less than 65 points)?
And for the love of god, i'm not trading my two 1st rounders for Brett Clarke!
If a player keeps moving on a faceoff, kick him out. If the next player does the same, give them a penalty. Sick of these faceoff cheaters online.
The thing with penalties is you can adjust the sliders; there are 3 of them in the game. As for a few more things I would like to see in NHL 12:
- Actual goal celebrations for each team-for example, the Fratellis' Chelsea Dagger playing when the Blackhawks score a goal at the UC (licensing agreements come into play again here)
- Correct helmet stickers for the Kings' alternate jersey
- Different arenas for AHL, European, International, and CHL teams-maybe these team's actual arenas if possible
- More customization options for custom teams
Problem is, at least on the xbox side your are limited to a DVD for all the data. PS3 could use it, but EA wont develop 2 versions. Next gen console will hopefully do some of the added stuff.

NHL 2000 had the best presentation overall. I did like NHL 99's intro though, with the moving view of the outside of the arena while the national anthem is being played.

Like if a guy steamrolls your star player and you go after him and pick a fight that adds to your line chemistry or if you let him get away with it the chemistry drops.
as for fighting how bout insted of going to a cut scene have it real time and players have to pair off not fight each other but hold jerseys and stuff if two guys are going at it.
They do need to fix the unlockables too in EASHL and HUT who ever is willing to fork over the most cash gets the best team/player. That seems fair.
I wish EA would just ban those CDC ****ers for good. Every god damn time we play them they cheese. Last game they scored a goal from center ice. They tried it again but Ben blocked it.
They've been cheating since NHL 09.

-Change the announcers, or at least revamp the voice work of the current ones. Too many years hearing about Peter Forsberg's thoughts on Simon Gagne leave me convinced the latter is the greatest sniper to ever play the game.
