First thing I noticed is that HUGE "C" on his chest, sigh, not to be one of those guys that are picky but did they not notice it looks a little bit big?



Now that I look at the real pic, the colors do seem to be a little faded. other than those things there's not much to tell from a still photo.

Just added a screenshot of Vladimir Tarasenko.

Woah. I thought the second screen shot of Tarasenko was a real image. Nicely done guys.

I would love for them to give us the ability to change individual player gloves and equipment. That's one thing I really got used to in The Show. It's definitely nit-picking, but Tarasenko uses all Navy Reeboks. Looks like Karlsson's got stripes where he shouldn't too.

Really actionhank? That is nitpicking. They show you a couple nice looking screenshots and all you can say is that its the wrong hockey gloves? Come on man. BTW, the equipment can be EDIT to your liking this year so if you don't like it then you can change it. (thank you EA )

We all know the gloves are not 100% accurate, the "C" on Erik's jersey is too big and Crawford's hockey mask is not that one but at least give them props.

Not sure what we're giving them props for. Not to be a jerk but we're giving them props for the game we should have gotten , last year?

You're not a jerk. I would give them props for putting in goalie improvements (which we have been begging for years) and editable players. You're right about the fact that they should have gotten this stuff last year but at least its coming to us in 2015.

I will focus on the positives I really don't care that it's next years game as along as they give us what we want hopefully NHL 10 with all the addiction that the next gen can give us.

Karlsson's aren't wrong it just is shiny on that part of the glove, its still black just a different material and its reflecting from the lights

I give props anytime a developer of a game gives me something good regardless of what happened in previous years. When they are showing me great things that should have been in last years game it at least shows they listened to their fans and are trying improve on a bad product. For that they deserve props.

I clearly acknowledged it was nit-picking. I put it in my own post.
That said, it doesn't mean I can't wish for the NHL team to implement a feature that other games have had for a while now. It would be nice to have. The Show has a lot of unique looking players because you can do more than just pick from default equipment and then slap it on a player. It's nice being able to give guys unique shoes, custom gloves, and change the way they wear their hats.

The NHL is obviously a lot more limited, but you could still have customized gloves per player, not just the team. Who knows, maybe they've added it. Making the players look and skate differently just adds a lot to the game, visually. It helps it seem like you're not just playing the same group of robots with different jerseys on.
