The lights are on
After building a
reputation as one of the best sports games in the EA stable this generation,
the NHL franchise's skates have lost their edge a bit the past few years thanks
to a stagnant Be A Pro mode, troubled Be A GM mode, and tweaks to the gameplay
that have irked some fans.
Though NHL 12 and 13
many not have had first-line form, the core of this hockey sim is still solid, so
a return to Conn Smythe contention isn't entirely out of the question if EA
Canada addresses its weaknesses. We spoke with NHL producers Sean Ramjagsingh
and Andy Agostini about what changes the team has in store for NHL 14's
gameplay and GM modes.
BE A GM
That's everything we
know about NHL 14 thus far. Stay tuned in the coming weeks as we learn more
about changes to the Be A Pro (now dubbed Live the Life) and online modes.

wow that is a lot of changes
I like the fighting mechanics that they're introducing.
Lots of minor changes seem to be shaping this into a fairly different experiance
I gotta find a video detailing all this stuff. Half way through it and i was getting bored.
Sounds like things are changing up more than the norm over there...
