One word to describe what this game will be this year.

Amazing.

If they keep building off of NHL 09/10 this way we could have a near perfect game in a couple more years.

+1!!!

And I can't wait to hear more about this GM mode. I just pray you can be fired if you suck at your job, forcing you to find another opening.

Madden 2000(?) had this feature and I remember getting let go by the Lions after 5 years and I had to wait 3 stinking years before anyone would offer me a job.
I was ticked because my GM skills were legendary but I loved how I could be fired for doing a bad job and I could also leave and try my luck somewhere else.

I thought with all of the info this will be the year.

Top prospects game seems like it will be the beginning of your Be a Pro. I think NCAA football did this one year, where you start by playing the high school All-Star game to determine your ratings and then you get offered a list of colleges. I do not think we'll be seeing the top prospects mode implemented anywhere else. It would be cool though.

I think its going to be more like a game or series of games.

I'm looking forward to this. I hope that if your like amazing and get picked 1st you could skip the AHL BS and go to the NHL.

I doubt it, but I hope that if your like picked in the 5th round you can still play in the ECHL or something..

And here I didn't like gamestop because of their underhanded tactics of buying exclusive content...

Great find.

I wonder what the difference between GM mode and dynasty mode will be, because it really does sound just like a highly improved dynasty mode with a new name. Which, if that's the case, isn't getting any complaints from me, heh.

I think that is what it is. A new dynasty mode.

I didn't find it, someone on another forum did.

The top prospects mode sounds sweet.

Yeah, NCAA09's Campus Legend starts with you trying to win a National High School title. I think you can play up to 4 games with your ratings depending on your success.

The prospects game will be cool for many reasons but one in particular will be to play against your peers. You'll get to see the other potential draftees and it'll be interesting to see how high or low they get picked.

It'll also make for some personal rivalries too.

Prospects game sounds great although I wonder who the other prospects will be in the game. The draft, as I imagine it, would be for the 09-10 season so . . . are we going to see Tavares and Hedman in our prospects game or I wonder if there will be a second 09-10 draft throwing a new set of rookies on top of the Tavares draft class. Hopefully it is the former and not the latter.

From what I heard at Ea boards it wasnt supposed to be released info and to prove my point FM refuses to discuss it here which kind of proves that point.
You got to understand that anyone who attended the community and has inside info, is still under contract to be hush hush until EA says so. Even then it will only be about certain things. As already stated, Gamestop probably had the go ahead, but that doesn't mean the rest can talk about it. Heck, I don't think they can any confirm it.

I imagine it will be a group of game generated rookies, being that EA can't legally put rookies in their game until they have signed waivers and played at least 1 NHL game. Thus the one month or so wait for rookies to be included via Roster Update.
