  1. So they updated a ton of minor leauge/european jerseys, but not the adizeros (numbers way too large for numerous teams, bottom stripes not curved like in real life etc.)? And what about new goalie gear, especially Brians?
    And yeah, gameplay updates would have been nice, too...
    Rockford IceHogs Alternate uniform - is not in game
    WBS Penguins Alternate Uniform - is not in game
    Atlanta Gladiators Alternate uniform - is not in a game
    Val D’Or Foreurs Alternate Uniform - is not in a game
    Brian's Optik goalie gear is not in a game
    Bravo EA Sports!:brickwall
    Gameplay feels pretty much the same to me, although I was only able to play one game. Felt like penalties were toned down just a little though which is fine with me.

    Once again I buy this game only to be disappointed.
    When will I stop being so stupid?...

    Matthews wears Bauer not True. Mitch Marner uses True. Some other NHLers as well.

    You are correct. For some crazy reason I thought they both used it. My old eyes must be confusing all these young players! Lol! True has some nice gear with a not so nice price.

    I know I'm fooling myself but I played one game at Detroit just to check out the new stadium and it was an excellent game. I'm not sure why this game can't have some consistency because like this game I just played, there are times when I really enjoy the game quite a bit.
    Funny thing.. I went back to total 4/4 full sim defaults, only raising penalties to max. I even had AE slider back to default 5/10.
    Such a love/hate relationship I have with EA hockey. ;)

    This sums me up as well with settings/sliders the last two years.
    NHL 16 I played through 2 seasons after making adjustments and didn’t touch a thing once started for the most part. Now I feel as if even default settings things change game to game. GRR.

    Without some sort of slider guide from EA.. it's a crap shoot and I find myself always going back to defaults for the most part.
    So far so good for me, really enjoying it. I just slowly make adjustments to sliders over time. When playing a game and I notice an issue, I make that one small correction and resume play. I do this over and over and over until I have the slider perfect. Usually takes half a season until I have them completely dialed in to perfection.
    They must of done of under the hood gameplay changes. I was dialed in on sliders , and now game plays to easy. 😢 I assume they sneak stuff in to make online crowd happy, and screws up with offline play. Same with all EA games.

    Wasn't able to play since the patch. Do last years rookies (Matthews, Marner, Werenski, Rantanen etc.) finally have play-by-play names?

    No they don’t

    I've noticed how sometimes things just FEEL DIFFERENT from game to game
    What I've done that seems to keep things feeling the same is.....when I turn on the game and load/continue my franchise:

    This has seemed to stabilize things for me where I don't feel like my sliders are drunk every time I turn the game on

    I started doing this in NHL14 on last gen and do it every year before every season game. I swear by it. I know it doesn’t make sense but if I don’t do this the gameplay is all whacked out.

    That's funny... I go into my sliders before each game as well.. just to make sure they are still are the ones I'm using.
    Even though I didn't get NHL this year and haven't in the past two years, what exactly did they change with the center ice logos? Specifically the Islanders. It has been the same since they moved into Barclays
    Can somebody please explain to me what they mean by updating the Nashville Predators Center ice? Because I am seeing the exact same thing as before the patch

    The updated the Blues logo and center ice markings.. so I'm guessing it's the same with Nashville?
    Do you think there will be another patch soon that addresses any game play issues? Would still like them to fix the shooting / one-timer issue.

    Only if there are enough complains about it from HUT community.

    Man, can't get over how obscure this series is becoming. The big roster update came out yesterday and no news or discussion! CHL and AHL updayed a little earlier than usual.

    For me, the lack of any interaction from the EA team makes me feel (real or imagined), as though they truly do not care about what the consumer thinks. And that really turns me off. Shame too, hockey is my favorite sport and would love to see this game succeed - as most of us would agree.

    All the big deal about the Bettman Knights being added to the game and Little Ceasar's wasn't even in base game? Man am I glad I didn't drop for this one.
