  1. Only thing I want to hear about is that the game will be like hockey and not a crap shoot on what AI you'll play against, what garbage will screw you over and if it'll take skill to play the game or if the bad players will get the AI Help. That and if the game play itself will be fixed. However, that being said, I expect to hear a bunch of stuff that caters to the casual hockey gamer and the game will be another disappointment. I sure hope I'm wrong but I doubt I will be

    Hopeful for roster share but prepared to be disappointed.

    Isn't it against NHL rules for a roster share?

    yeah if we didnt have roster sharing for the last 4 years i dont think itll be this year. what kills me is that other companies have this feature for couple years already.

    Some people really shouldn't play sports games.

    Why would that be against the NHL rules? Every other sports game has this and what the community does with it is not in the hands of the NHL...

    I remember that Sean guy saying something about generated rookies etc

    That's about whether EA is allowed to create a rookie or not. When one guy plays at least 1 game in the NHL, they can be created by the EA Sports dev team. If they play in the AHL, they have to sign an agreement to get implemented in the game.
    With adding a roster share function, everything about this stupid process would be gone for good because the community could create rosters for themselves (plus fantasy rosters, all time teams etc.). But I guess EA doesn't care. I hope it will be part of NHL 18, but I only believe it when I see it.

    I wonder if they will add an expansion mode. This would be the perfect time to do it.

    There's rumors that they are. Makes sense with the relocation stuff they added in BeAGM mode.
    I'm expecting some HUT features/announcements, an expansion mode, and some weak gameplay "features."
    All I want at this point is for scoring goals to feel like an exciting event (5-man huddles - I don't buy their excuse as to why they can't put it in) and for AI to be improved. That's it! I loved NHL17 and think it's a solid base, and a fun game (with sliders). I just want each goal/game to feel more exciting as opposed to "goal scorer throws hands up and one guy hugs him."

    You shouldn't buy it and lemme tell you why. FIFA if you have ever played the past 2 years used to have the same issue, I believe. What they did is they made it seamless and they have all of the players celebrating in a cutscene. It's not really that bad/noticeable and it works. You of course can still go and celebrate with one other player and then it cuts away.
    My point, don't buy the excuse that they can't do it because its being done right now with FIFA and they are supposed to share technology right?
    Simple stuff:
    Since I do the CPU VS CPU GM mode
    - Make the D-men stand behind the net and have a guy skate around him, or just a normal few second pause then skate it out..instead of this just grab the puck, turn around, and skate as fast as you can until they toss an awkward pass or run in to an opponent b.s. that happens now.
    In general:
    - Better menus.
    - Ability to lock players in "Edit lines". Let me keep Player A as first line center and Player B as third line RW etc... and be able to adjust from there or hit "best lines" without worrying that specific players will move.
    - Have goalies and players automatically switch team colors and masks if you select that option, and have it depend on what league they play in, or when they're traded.
    - More logo, goalie mask, jersey options...
    - Explain the sliders better.
    - Add/ replace commentary via updates to give a fresh feel.
    - Better trade system. If a team declines an offer, let them send back a counter-offer, or say that they are not interested in letting player/pick X go at this time. More trading block requests during trade deadline, based on if teams are buyers or sellers.
    - Morale boosts, aggressin boosts during rivalry games / playoffs/ Cup Finals.
    - - -
    More advanced wishlist:
    - Be able to give individual players commands (Shoot more, Shoot less, Work on Face-Offs...)
    - Show me a real time video loop of how a slider affects a player that refreshes each time you move up or down a notch.
    (Set the skate speed to 0 and the video shows a player skating like he's going through quicksand. Set it to 50 and the video refreshes and you see him skating X amount faster...)
    - I know I have more ideas just can't think of them right now.
