I still have yet to experience these laggy and terrible servers..?

Been playing NHL on my 360 since 08 and have never noticed it.

Maybe you haven't played enough EASHL (not sure about HUT and versus seems okay usually).

On EASHL, if it's a top team vs. top team, basically whoever has host wins.

Yep. Teams always leave if they get away, until they get put as home. It's pretty dumb.
I've been winning 6-0 sometimes and the game ends and my team gets the loss.


Sure hope the PS3 version doesn't freeze every other second like NHL 12 did for me.

(Probably will be my only console purchase of the year)

That sucks for you. I have the PS3 version too, and I have played the game a ton. I never really experience freezing.
I've only frozen maybe 3 or 4 times while loading an EASHL game, and that was months ago. It hasn't happened in a long time.

I played about 500 EASHL games combined in NHL 11 and 12.
I very rarely had any serious issues with the servers. To me it was nothing more than a slight annoyance every once in a while.

What's being talked about here just happened.

We were winning 5-2 with 30 seconds left in the game in EASHL, my buddy's game freezes and we get a 3-0L.

This is why I play neither EASHL not HUT. If neither of these online modes are 100% working, why is everyone so excited about online GM? That'll be just as bad.

Looks like my PS3 is actually going to be turned on next week. The poor thing has been sitting under my TV for the longest time without being used.

NHL 13 Demo Hits the Ice on August 21 (Blog):

EA SPORTS NHL Fans, the moment is fast approaching! On August 21 (August 22 on PSN in Europe), you’ll finally be able to get your hands on the NHL 13 demo available for download on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network. This year’s demo will offer a brand new gameplay experience headlined by True Performance Skating and EA SPORTS Hockey I.Q.. NHL 13 will be released on September 11, 2012. Pre-order NHL 13 now to receive exclusive retail bonus offers!


The demo will feature access to four different modes – Play Now, NHL Moments Live, Hockey Ultimate Team (HUT) and Free Skate – and the ability to earn up to three HUT Item Packs to use in the full version of NHL 13.


In Play Now, select either the Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings or the New Jersey Devils as you battle it out in the third period. The period will start with a randomized score each time you play. Test out the all-new ‘True Broadcast’ camera which delivers a startlingly realistic hockey broadcast presentation as the camera swivels and zooms to capture every moment.


Posted Image


The all-new NHL Moments Live mode offers you the chance to relive some of the most thrilling moments from today’s NHL. In the demo, relive the dramatic overtime showdown of Game Five of the Western Conference Final between the Kings and Phoenix Coyotes. The moment is introduced by real-world NHL footage in the menu video showcase that draws you into the intensity of the moment before you start the moment. If you complete the moment, you’ll receive a HUT Item Pack.


Posted Image


Create a fantasy team without boundaries as you test your skills at Hockey Ultimate Team in NHL 13. HUT features a revamped design, improved reward system and an exciting new playoff format. In the NHL 13 demo, enter HUT to receive a HUT Item Pack. Unlock your starter pack and play in a tournament. If you beat Team USA and win the tournament you’ll receive an upgraded HUT Pack


In Free Skate, hone your skills and get that practice time in while you can. When NHL 13 hits the shelves on September 11, you want to make sure you’re ready to beat the best of the best and take home Lord Stanley’s Cup.


Invite a Friend to download the demo, to receive one HUT Item Pack. You can also watch the GM Connected trailer and the True Performance Skating Tutorial in the demo.


We’re excited to finally announce the NHL 13 demo and we can’t wait until August 21 hits so you can get your hands on it. We hope you enjoy it!

That's the risk you take when you 2-man.

Looked through most of the pages, and haven't found anything on this, but does anyone know if there is some sort of team budget in BAGM? I always hate it when cap floor teams can sign and keep all their players that would normally go to FA, as well as other FA's.

Blindly pre ordered this off Amazon a few minutes ago. I've got a feeling it's going to bite me in the rear (the last EA game I blindly pre ordered was Mass Effect 3 :( ).

Datsyuk is the highest rated player in the game at 95. I'm surprised at this, because it's not Crosby or Ovechkin...but I LOVE it.


Malkin(as seen in that HUT screenshot) is only an 89?
Edit: Malkin is an 89 in HUT, but in the game he's a 91.

It looks like they really are taking a different approach with the ratings this year. I like the new layout for the attributes screen too.

Why is Miller the best rated goalie???
He's not even one of the top 5 goaltenders in the NHL.

That's what I thought too, how did Rinne not make top 5?

Yea Miller a 92 makes absolutley no sense. This what I would've had (for all positions)

Forwards:

1) Crosby (95)
2) Malkin (94)
3) Datsyuk (93)
4) Giroux (91)
5) Kovalchuk (90)

Defense:

1) Chara (91) - same
2) Weber (91)
3) Karlsson (90)
4) Doughty (89)
5) Suter (88)

Goalies:

1) Quick (91)
2) Lundqvist (90)
3) Fleury (90)
4) Price (89)
5) Luongo (89)

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

He most certainly isn't better than Lundqvist, Rinne, Luongo, Fleury, or Quick. I'd even take Brodeur, Price, or Halak over him.

Regardless, he is unquestionably not the best goalie in the NHL.

Yea i know right!! My opinion is he should be 86-87, but that is based off of the old way they decide overalls... But i like how they changed it... Parros is definitely not an 80+ player lol

And well schneids is right on the cusp of greatness

I'm ecstatic at their being a free skate in the demo. Playing 1 period over and over in the other demos got boring.

At least now we can practice for as long as we want against a goalie in a free skate.
