If you guys have any questions or anything that you want me to check, just post it here and I'll make sure to check it out today.
I will start off with my focus will be Gameplay stuff since the BEAGM questions for 360 are satisfied, its same as 14, I can live with that!

Are penalties called IN FULL, IE interference is my biggest concern, in High Impact mode?
Is the bouncyball puck with the CPU dumps it in gone?
Is the poke check better?
How is the AI? Any change?
Any noticeable tweeks to gameplay overall?

In player profile menu, do you still have to search deeper for their rank (1st, 2nd) ect or is it like 15, right there under there name, as it was in 13 as well.

Biggest one is player roles, player development, this was broken or not correct in 14, is anything changed there? Do you have more control over the players?
Any player specific training like past games?

Thats all I really have. Thanks alot in advance if you can answer any of these! Most of these are going to impact whether I get it or not, or stick with 14.

I just went through the menus, and all the game modes from NHL 14 are in the NHL 15 Xbox 360 Season Ticket version.

Only the 2011 and 2012 Winter Classic stadiums are available, though you can play with custom teams.

Player editing is in. Same as it was in NHL 14.

Pregame intros use the same cinematics as in NHL 14, only with Doc and Eddie on commentary. You don't see them on screen, you just hear them.
 
# 11 jyoung @ 09/05/14 02:30 PM
Hybrid icing is in.
 
# 12 Fiddy @ 09/05/14 02:34 PM
thanks for showing this off via twitch. was debating picking it up just bc ive had them all. but, this is a patch, with Edzo, Doc, bouncing puck fixed, and a new menu splash with cover athlete. man!
 
# 13 jyoung @ 09/05/14 02:36 PM
NBC overlays are not in. All of the overlays are the same generic EA sports ones from NHL 14.

The "basketball bounce physics" on dump-ins has been fixed. Pucks bounce normally now on dump-ins.

is there a season mode?
 
# 15 jyoung @ 09/05/14 03:02 PM
Simming to the next shift and the Memorial Cup entry period are both in for Be a Pro. BAP looks identical to last year so far.
 
# 16 FFWRX @ 09/05/14 03:07 PM
Can you check BEAGM drafting? I am sure it is the same, but just curious.

How many "authentic" arenas are in the game?

I saw a lot of penalties in the Memorial Cup Be A Pro entry draft tryout game I played. There was even a CPU instigated fight and a game misconduct boarding.

In the NHL Be a GM games, I haven't seen hardly any penalties called.

I am playing on default All-Star Hardcore.

Feels the same as NHL 14.

The CPU feels the same as NHL 14. All the old tricks seem to work. They are extremely passive and will let you do whatever you want when you have the puck.

The CPU's offense also feels the same. They are incredibly indecisive in the neutral zone. They struggle to get shots off and stay in possession.

The puck physics on dump-ins are the only real noticeable gameplay improvement so far. The collisions feel a little more lifelike, but not by much.
 
# 20 BlueNGold @ 09/05/14 04:27 PM
Does the CPU still use that seemingly invincible protect puck/cut to the net move most of the time?

Also, are the breakouts still too easy with the CPU D leaving the LW wide open all the time?
