I'm extremely excited for this. It sounds like they are revealing more than one feature, but who knows. This is definitely the earliest I've remembered information coming out about the next release. I'm hoping I won't be let down this early. Please let this be good!

Such an peculiar picture of a player with a weird helmet on.The whole picture is odd. Generic hockey player with an unflattering mouth-guard pose and weird helmet that has a non-NHL-like ear-cover.

Of course it's blatantly obvious I'm nit-picking the crap out of this picture...but I feel like that's what we're supposed to do with the first releases lol.

But seriously, to those in the know about the small equipment details, is there something telling about that helmet? Also, check out the body positioning in that picture. His right arm is at an odd angle. Almost looks like he's gearing up for a nice shoulder hit.

Maybe a new improved hitting/physics engine? Lord knows it needs it.

What I would love would be a more realistic Draft with more scouting options and Junior Leauges (NCAA, USHL, NAHL, BCHL ect.) also where players you draft but don't have playing for NHL/AHL teams can improve.

As a feature I'd love something like NBA 24/7 (from like nBA live 08 or something) or whatever it was where the rosters get updated everyday including tendencies and hot/cold streaks.

This and correct contracts (50) and reserve contracts (90)

Hoping for a BE a GM Mode Overhaul. I want the similar treatment that NBA2k13 had with its association mode.

Mid season Signings is also a plus. The controlling of ticket pricing and concessions, along with Advertisements and sponsorship.

I want the following:

1. BaGM improvements
2. Gameplay improvements, specifically the AI
3. Presentation improvements, specifically the commentary and stat overlays

I really don't care about new equipment updates and all that stuff until the 3 things above get some love.

Hoping they have the option to import gm connected rosters from NHL 13

I seriously kill my self if the big reveal has something to do with EASHL, HUT or other online gaming.

Please, EA, how bout new skating engine for goalies too? Time to re-write the goalies behaviour. Also would love to see other official and two linesmen on the ice. And same snap shots and fights like 2K.

And one more thing: CREATION CENTRE for NHL. How difficult is it? FIFA already have this for 2 years now, we, the NHL players, also like to create our own teams, jerseys, players and tournaments.

- Ability to view stats, awards, rosters of all players and teams, including retired
- Goalie fatigue
- Ability to push/shove/fight after the whistle

I hope they've done something with BE A PRO, that mode is really lacking depth.

Gameplay related, I hope they've changed the puck physics. I feel if the puck physics were realistic, the gameplay would flow so much better. Passing would be better, shooting would be more realistic and so on.

I would like to see a better menu system and all of the teams with at least somewhat accurate pre-game introductions and enhanced television style presentation. Most of all, I hope there are no horrible bugs or issues like virtually no penalties called until after the patch addressed the issue on the current version of the game.
 
# 14 Money99 @ 04/12/13 10:22 AM
My first wish is that AI and gameplay have been completely revamped so there is no more player boosts or AI cheating.
But I think we all know that's never going to happen.

So, I will say that if they improved the fighting engine and give us the ability to be an OHL GM, with all the bells and whistles, I might buy '14.

Playing in the AHL and OHL is way better than the NHL, because the player differences are way more exaggerated.
So if I can be a GM for the Spits, I'm in.

I hope defenders don't constantly get sucked out of position giving easy breakaways

and

some way to call a timeout or change goalies without going to the menu using your one and only pause online
 
# 16 HouseOfBalloons @ 04/12/13 11:26 AM
AI players knowing where the puck is.
AI players knowing when their team has pulled the goalie, showing any sort of desperation to stop the puck handler.
 
# 17 HouseOfBalloons @ 04/12/13 11:30 AM
And... last one... not even a new fighting engine, but maybe don't have every player magically disappear off the ice when a fight happens??

Amen, lets hope they make something better than 13. 13 was good.. but it can be better. There's a lot of new things they can bring to this game with the new consoles just around the corner.

My favorite game mode in almost any game is the create a character mode. I played it extensively in the NHL series and have grown tired of it. It does some things right, i.e. giving you the option of where you want to start, rather than picking a team (Madden) or immediately entering a quick, simulated draft (MLB The Show). I think the coach giving you feedback after each and every shift is a step in the right direction, but it could use work. I don't even like baseball, but I find myself playing The Show quite a bit because Road To The Show is so much fun. Maybe they also need to work over the attribute system, and along with it how player progression is done.

That, and they need to work on BeAGM mode. More than anything, the cold/hot streaks probably. Too many people have 80% win ratios because of it. I think it's a cool feature, but if it's going to give us lopsided results, it needs to be removed if not worked on.
 
# 20 canucksss @ 04/12/13 12:10 PM
besides improvement in AI, gameplay, player differences, goalie fatigues, presentations.... ADD
1. penalty sliders...just like 2K so we can see different penalties
2. NHL schedules of games after the 1st season and not MLB type of schedule.
3. roster sharing
4. Goalie stats - its only 82 games but when i tabulate my 2 goalies number of games its higher than 82 games/reg. season.
