My 2 favorite things in the world (except the fam) the habs and EA hockey. I cant believe this, this is so awesome....playing as all the habs legends! wow......

I just hope EA doesnt screw this up.......they screwed last years edition up.......so please ea.....you are representing the habs!

Last year i swore i would never ever ever buy another ea game........they must have took my email serious....cause no there focusing on my habs...........

Are they including vintage hab players, or vintage hab teams.

The former would be good, but the latter would be amazing.

I've always thought it'd be a good idea if EA released a sister NHL game with only classic vintage teams that can play against each other. No season play, just exhibition and playoff modes.

The last one I have is 07, and I was so fustrated with the skill of my goalie sometimes I would just hate to play. I got a PS3 a few weeks ago so I will probably buy 09, hopefully if the regular game modes suck online will be decent.

All legend team? They'll screw it up somehow i'm sure.

No they won't screw it up. Have you guys seen canadiens.nhl.com? They have pics of Dryden and Guy Lafleur up....BEAUTIES!!!

They have Dryden's famous stance animated, they have guy lafleur with NO HELMET (classic), and the gameplay is even more refined than last year's version (08) which I thought was an awesome step in the right direction. In fact, NHL 08 is my favourite NHL game to date (been playing since '93...yes, habs baby)

They aren't and will not screw it up.

Also, Be a Pro mode is gonna be INSANE. Bulldogs and habs......YES!

if anyone has xbox here, lemme know your gamertag. see you online.

I was so dissapointed in last years game. It was like NHL07 with a new calendar (and changed controls). Yeah, they added the ahl, but I felt the game had no other improvements. At least as far as the PC version went

The PC version was the PS2 version, just with updated (well...at least from PS2) graphics...

Same with this year's PC version.

the 360 and PS3 have had a different game. NHL 08 was awesome, and no doubt 09 will be even better.

Thats the thing with EA's NHL franchise, they only have the next gen. Gaming engine for PS3 and 360. I own a 360, and NHL 08 was absolutely amazing on it, definatly the best hockey game ive ever played, and i expect NHL 09 to be even better. I dont know how it is on PS3, ive heard mixed reviews, apparently its best played on 360, or thats what ive read on gamespot.com?

I don't play many Video game but I've Played many NHL Games

The only 2 problems I have noticed in the past few years with both EA and 2K games are:

1.I understand That hockey players are big but... Alot of players are absolute morbidley obese giants that ultra slow. (Ever play win Sundin anyone...)

- It doesen't seem to improve this year

2. Not Very accurate Skill settings. Some Very Over-rated players but there isin't many Underrated ones.

-I hope This will be better although I Understand They only see the player on paper with last yeats stats.

I don't know if anyone has seen it yet, but EA sports producers are releasing blogs with snippets of game play. One of the more recent ones the producer's (playing as Ruslan Salei) check's Tanguay. Tangauy immediately goes down injured.... Let's hope this isnt a sign of things to come!

Ya but the problem with Ea Nhl video games, is no matter what we always end up winnig the cup with the montreal canadiens..

I woudlnt take too much into the game itself.

Other then that old problem of all PLayers on the cover of the Madden nfl games always got injured that year.

Id prefer to not have any canadiens on the cover of the game...

NHL 08 was actually my first hockey game ever, so I can't compare it with past editions.

I played it to death, though, so I guess that says I like it :P

One thing I disliked was the "sim" option of dynasty mode. Somehow, I did not feel my actions and descisions were translated properly into the team's behavior. Even with the most brutal team, winning 75 percent of all games in a season, if I had the misfortune of getting to the playoffs against the Sidneys, I would automatically get eliminated. I'd like that fixed. So, it is my hope for the new release, this year.

(Now, I know playoffs are a whole different game than the regular season, but the bias towards that team is rediculous. That, and after a short time, Crosby reaches 99 in almost all his stats. What's that mean, that Gretsky was at 120 or something? Come on, you can't play that perfect :P)

In NHL 2007 I had a dynasty...after a couple of years the following players were either ranked 99 or in the high 90s

Lecavalier (all 99)

Patrice Bergeron (almost all 99)

A. Kostitsyn (92)

Koivu (mid 90s)

Markov (98)

Mikko Koivu (mid/low 90s)

Pahlsson was a 92 for crying out loud.

Once you start building up the team upgrades your rating just go through the roof!!

I also got Lecavalier by trading Bonk and someone for someone Zubrus, Zubrus for Slava Kozlov, Kozlov and someone for Morrow, Morrow and a freeagent for Vinny. Haha. Basically, Bonk for Lecavalier when the night was done.
