    Are they teasing Frostbite?

    Could be a few things:
    * Frostbite?
    * New skating engine (the person in the teaser seems very fluid, even accelerating)
    * Outdoor games
    Madwolf

    The person in the teaser looks like a kid with a stick that's too long for them, or someone who doesn't play hockey all that often...
    Wouldn't be suprised if it's a new story type mode or something along the lines of what FIFA and Madden have been doing.

    If i had to take only one guess it’s going to be story mode. Hate to sound disgruntled but nothing they add will matter if the core problems plaguing the game for years continue to exist. If this game continues to play offline and online like it has and all they spent any time on was creating a story mode that will without a doubt be my last straw. As it is I haven’t been able to play an offline season in two years because of the lingering ignored problems with this franchise

    I really hope it’s not some scripted story mode like Longshot in Madden. I honestly wouldn’t be surprised though.

    I'm betting it is.. something I doubt I would ever play... sigh, oh well.

    The text for NHL 19 glitches to “CHEL”.

    That BaS blurb gives me hope that there won't a Longshot/The Journey type mode but rather your own player
    Tease me with the ability to share rosters. That would even be better than the chick in the white dress on the front row of the Stanley Cup Championship game who gave Ovie a show...
    If they are teasing a story mode I really hope it's not some more scripted BS like the Madden and FIFA story modes have . Customization is key, and EA needs to realize this. Just because 2K has a customizable story mode doesn't mean EA can't make their own attempt with that as well. 
    That's from the survey they gave out last year.
    The CHEL stuff has me far less excited than I was when I was hoping for when I first saw the trailer. Making an good or even impressive system as suggested by the survey without fixing the basic gameplay is like hanging up a new chandelier in a condemned house.

    Per the usual, nobody mentions the positives...
    If that list is accurate, there's are some interesting possibilities this year...IF...

    Yeah, if that list is accurate, that's the best feature list in a long time.
    Real Player Differentiation.
    Okay. How many years do we hear about this?
    Still waiting for complete integration between all their licensed leagues.
    BTW, the trailer is probably hinting at a pond-hockey mode.

    Where is this from?

    From a survey earlier this year that was put together by EA. More specifically from the EA_NHL subreddit.

    one thing NHL can do to make me buy this game at launch again like I use to is change default player builds in the EASHL. no player progression is no fun
    back when the EASHL first started.. the game was by far the most addicting and best sports game online and nothing even compared. now days other sports have caught up to it like FIFA online and over taken NHL
    but they would be wise to maybe bring back attributes and player edit and or player progression. at least make it like FIFA player progression and builds... it would make playing online in the EASHL without your club a fun thing to do to progress your guy again to kill time.
    any ways, bring this back and I will buy NHL this year day 1 and I know many others of my friend who do the same.
    i'm not sure if this chel thing address some of what i'm talking about or not... if it does then that is a start with bringing NHL back imo
    the EASHL should always be the #1 focal point of this game.. not FUT.. not franchise or offline.. the EASHL . there is no better sports gaming experience than playing 6 v 6 online competitively or casual in NHL.. I miss the early days of the EASHL..
    Yeah that list looks good on paper.. but to me, it sounds like here is what stuff we would like to add.. BUT which ones get the most responses and we will work on those. So I highly doubt they make all of those changes.
    I'm an offline franchise player, so if game play/franchise mode stuff is not improved on, I'll pass for the first time since I played NHL 94. I'm definitely waiting on reviews and feedback from the OS community this year.
    I don't see how game play will improve without moving to the frostbite engine, but I'm no programmer.
    For a little levity possibly reading the trailer and just a hunch and from the naked eye. It appears that their all be it very slightly that the ice surface has a slight tilt to it. So maybe just maybe they will finally admit that their is indeed ice tilt in the game.🤣😂
    Lol it appears I've been living under a rock over the last couple of days.
    Interested to see what comes about. Though really couldn't give a .... about the online stuff as I only like playing franchise mode.
    If the survey list is indeed what they focused on, I am certainly curious about the re-vamped scouting. I hope they did a good job there.
    But really the re-vamped scouting (& hopefully the ability to hire different scouts)is the tip of the iceberg for me.
    Instead of setting prices for Fries & Hot Dogs (Btw I dont think I have looked at that screen in my franchise mode for the past 10 seasons), I want to be able to hire & fire my assistant GM, my head coach, lead medical practitioner, some major roles that could actually be used as part of a Morale & chemistry system that works.
    You could even control those titles/positions via a salary cap, so say you had the best lead medical practitioner in the league, who could give you accurate details on a players injury or their physical condition in general, it would then mean you could only afford to have a mediocre head coach who can seriously affect team chemistry because players may or may not not gel with him & morale can fluctuate up & down.
    Be creative EA, please!! This is what I want in a Franchise Mode.
    There's more, (actual gameplay fixes) but I'm just gonna stop here :)
    Collision Physics - stick on stick collisions throughout the game (now if they can fix the puck going through the goalies pads, I'll be ecstatic)
    Scouting - would love an overhaul
    Real Player Movement Tech - I would think this would be a move to frostbite? Can they really improve skating and what not with the current game engine?
    Real Player Differentiation - probably my biggest hope for improvement, but EA has NEVER been able to accomplish this
    New Broadcast Presentation - this would be great, talks about cutting-edge presentation package (maybe more overlays/stats/etc, too) dynamic commentary sounds good but for me, it would need to talk about MY franchise in progress, not real world stories and events

    NBA Live is getting RPM this year but not Frostbite. I imagine NHL is getting the same.
    Tired of these bum ass madden producers catering to these “competitive” players.   It’s funny to Me because the players they cater to aren’t competitive at all.    These lames abuse and exploit the game.   Year after  year EA leaves that fake ass nano blitz In the game , and for what?...  To cater to these lames.  EA needs to grow sone balls and make a real fucking NFL football game for us real nfl fans.

    They forgot to add..
    *None of this will affect the CPU as it will be able to blaze across the ice, defy gravity, ignore their attribute settings so each player can snipe, dangle and thread no-look, backhand passes through HoF defenders for easy one-time, top-shelf goals.
    IT'S IN THE GAME!!!
    Absolutely none of the other modes interest me whatsoever.
    Just shows that the NHL team spends more time on adding 'back of box' crap to help sales.

    I had become more of a lurker for awhile than a poster... Our oldest son (just shy of his 16th birthday) was killed in an auto accident 2 1/2 years ago. Life got tough, with our 3 other kids and my wife is just totally devasted - she's not the same person as she was before and it took a toll on me. I walked away from this stuff, but had to get back into it for my own personal enjoyment. We've moved a couple times since and life takes you down paths you may not always want or expect. So I've gotten more active here and it's been a solace for me. Thanks man!

    Very sorry to hear about your loss and can’t even begin to imagine....kind of makes us all complaining about video game seem rather silly and puts things in perspective as reality often does. Glad to see you back and all the best to you and your family.

    Be a Beauty? What the hell is wrong with this game devs???? Sales keeps shrinking year after year and they continue to ignore gameplay improvements and instead add stupid features year after year...
    As many have said it's another skip for me.

    As you said the sales are shrinking ever since the disaster that was NHL 15. There are people that are still going to buy it no matter what & they're catering to that audience with this 'Be A Beauty' & Chel nonsense. Who talks like that? This game attracts a niche audience & they're even driving off the hardest of hardcore NHL gamers with this stuff they continue to pump out. A small dev team shouldn't allowed to be an excuse anymore. It's been the same guys since NHL 10.

    Wow.. no player differential, no new commentary or franchise improvements?
    If this list is accurate I'm out this year.

    God bless you and your family. Your family is in my prayers. I'm very sorry for your loss.
    EA: "Here's a ton of NHL legends for you to use - luckily, with our game, you can't tell the difference between any of them and a 70 overall grinder!"
    That new movement tech looks interesting tho. Hopefully, it won't bring back the floating motion model, that was in the game before Nhl 13. That would be disaster.

    Are they sure they didn't get this year's NHL features mixed up with the features for the new Barbie game?

    Would that make Ken the cover guy?...

    I Do like having Legends in the Game.

    Me too. The problem is EA is terrible at player separation so there will be nothing noticeably different between any of the Legends and current stars.
