A year ago, EA Sports completely bungled their title NHL 15 title. They didn't release NHL 14 on PS4 to give themselves an entire year to "provide a next-gen experience," then hid all the things they couldn't fit in the game until release like a competent Franchise mode.

If EA gets their shit together, I'll likely be looking to host a casual Online Franchise But this wouldn't be a Madden-level priority with slow/long-term advances.

If EA plays their cards right, hopefully they can unveil an MLB The Show type feature of importing your season's to future titles.

In reference to the post above.  EA's feature reveal set has been leaked. By EA. One of the US's worst rated companies year in and year out accidentally put their NHL feature list up early (and then took it down), and they once again ignored one facet that left many people upset a year ago.  If history serves, EA won't have learned their lessons, and will ignore the whole situation hoping people become ignorant Apple Users sheep.

The New EASHL:


  • "Reimagined" to allow for specialized classes at each position.
  • 6 vs 6 Online Team Play

6 vs 6 Online Team Play:


  • Real rosters for ranked matches.


  • Private Matches for Friends and EASHL
  • Online Couch Co-op
  • >>> EA gave this it's own focus point. Ummm Online Co-op is just another fancy OTP deviation.

Be a GM:


  • Player Morale -- Players have to mesh well and you have to manage that chemistry and attitude.
  • ZERO MENTION OF ONLINE FRANCHISE. AGAIN!

Be a Pro:


  • New Progression system is based on your on-ice skills. Not building XP and then choosing what attributes to update.

Hockey Ultimate Team:


  • You give EA money. Lot's of it.
  • Single Player Seasons were added.

Visual On-Ice Training:


  • Skills Trainer Mode

Gameplay:


  • Precision Skating
  • Seamless Puck Pickups
  • Distinct Atmoshper (Mascots, Chats, etc.)
  • Commentary (Yep, commentary is a new feature, even though it was there every year prior)
  • Playoff Beards (How sad that this is the coolest feature. SMH)

Fucking weak effort by EA.
