We didn't really see or learn anything new here. I am excited for the authentic goalie stances - that will provide some differentiation. I would like to see the net battles in action. If done correctly, that will be a huge addition.

Combined with the blog listing gameplay enhancements, some of this looks pretty good (sounds even better in writing) and has my hopes up a bit more than previously. If it's more than talk, some of the smaller nuances involving skating, puck pick ups, bumps and hits, etc. can give the gameplay a fresher feel.

I will say though, I despised virtually all of the new goal celebrations they showed.

"Smoother puck pickups" ..... yeah, um, sticks have been magnets for pucks since forever. That means nothing to me.

Just sayin'.

Someone pointed out that the sliding on your head one was absurd (granted, they were rude) and EA got rude right back in defending it, and how it was a real celebration...which technically it was, but it happened once.

I get that they're for fun (and I really wish EA would just say 'they are just meant to be fun!' instead of trying to defend the authenticity of sliding on your goddamn head.
