Does anyone know if the Be a Pro view mode will be available as a standard camera view for a regular game -- as in FIFA 08?

Be A Pro—NHL 09 will put you on the ice with a dynamic new 3rd person camera as you play the role of one player on a team. Our Performance Tracker will rate your play in over 60 (confirm) categories, both online and offline, to make sure you know what parts of your game need to improve.

Offline--Be A Pro starts your career off in the ranks of the AHL and challenges you to become one of the best in the NHL. Your very own hockey card will mark your progress, from your rookie beginnings to a potentially legendary ending.
