- Banner raising in Be a GM mode (division, president's trophy, stanley cup)
- Around the league score ticker in Be a GM hud
- Revamped trade engine/logic
- Pre-Season: follows the same rules as NHL, you can try out all your prospects from ahl/chl, and if they make it past the pre season, they have 9 games to try out if you want to keep them on the team or send them back to the junior leagues.

I hope the cpu trade logic is up to par regarding the 5 player deals. Overall, it looks good.

Wow.. if it all works reasonably.. I might buy another x360 as a spare due to mine being on all day.

Malkin for Zherdev, Lupul, Wisniewski, Fowler and Marchant? I really hope that trade would never be pulled off in the game...there need to be guys that are considered 'untouchable' by the AI GM (just like a real GM). Then again, there might be some situations where that trade would make sense (ie. in the last year of Geno's contract, if you were unable to negotiate a new contract with him).

All I'm saying in a roundabout way...I'm curious to see if they've improved the CPU logic. I'm certainly pumped to see how well they've implemented RFA's.

Good Lord man, the wait for this damn game is getting nearly unbearable.

I can't wait for my son and I to have our now...yearly extravaganza, playing the new game for several hours. And having Ma keep yelling to us how cold dinner is getting. Man I love that!

Then later the night of the 7th, when things have quieted down...I'll have a freaking blast setting up my Wild GM mode. Gotta have plenty of coke [soda] and Marlboro's on hand. Best 60 bucks I'll spend this year.

As Realmk said, one of the big things is not seeing star players sitting in FA for long stretches.

Man I can't wait to start my Devils franchise. I'm loving the demo, I can only imagine how awesome the retail version will be.

Vikes...funny that you clarified that it was soda that you were speaking of. Not the...other stuff. Ha.

Seriously man. I plan on having three HDTV's with NHL on each one. 6 or 7 people over, throwing back some beers and really digging into this beauty.

Schedule for September 7th:
1. Going to GameStop as soon as they open.
2. Averaging 60-70 mph on residential streets to get home.
3. Playing NHL 11. Non stop.
4. Going to the Yankees game.
5. Back to non stop NHL, throwing back a six pack.

Best. Day. Ever.

The best EA series just keeps on getting better

Interesting.. Evgeny Artyukhin is a 81 overall, John Scott is a 79 and Hjalmarsson is only a 78.

Now, I'm hoping that Artyukhin and Scott are so high because they are good enforcers. Not because EA thinks they're potential NHL AllStars.

Too bad you can't play BAGM with your son though eh?
My dad and I always play a franchise together, so EA's not really an option for us since they continue to refuse this option.

That's fantastic Canuxrok that you and your father spend time together like that. I know how much it means to me that my son comes over to the house to visit and play NHL with me. My son is 26 and has his own place now. We have an absolute blast!

And ya...it would be very cool for my son and I to get into franchise mode together. Maybe someday.

Well Realmk, lets hope by NHL'12', we can eliminate the cigarettes from our rituals.

Oh ya, I can get lost in the inner working of GM mode for hours. I get a kick outta checking out who's gone where outta FA, and the AI trades that have happened. And of course I'm always checking out possible moves I may want to make.

So yep, hopefully the logic will be improved for '11'. That'll make GM mode all the better.

I was standing in line at the local GS to pre-order NHL 11, and I about fell over when I saw the "midnight launch" sign. I'm in NW Indiana, and A LOT of people have pre-ordered. All I know is that I have Sept 7th off and I will not sleep the night of the 6th. I'll be a month into my Hawks franchise by Tuesday night
