Hard to believe people don't like the skating. This is easily the most realistic hockey game, the skating adds another aspect to the game that you have to be good at. I guess if you are more into arcade style games then maybe you won't love the skating.

I love the new skating. Also love the fact that you can actually miss the net and score 5 hole.

The only thing I don't like is how overly effective poke checking is, but it's better than the way underpowered poke checking from NHL 12.

I know, I love the skating in this game as well. Seems like it will take time for some people to get used to the skating.

Another "more-of-the-same" effort from EA, IMO.

Yes, they have made some changes again, but, the game looks, sounds and, for the most part, plays like the last half-dozen or so efforts.

This isn't new to NHL13, but I have never understood why my lines aren't back to full strength (fully rested) after I break the glass. It takes 10 or 15 minutes to change the glass, wouldn't all the lines be at full strength after that?

I just traded Luongo, Hejduk, 2016 2nd Round Pick to Tampa for Purcell, Garon, and 2013 4th Round Pick.

I later flipped Garon to Toronto for Jerry D'Amigo and a 2013 5th Round Pick.

Then got Gigure from the Avs for a 2014 3rd Round Pick.

They're forced to bag skate during the change as punishment for breaking the glass ...

But Purcell ended up with 67 points playing along side Kesler and Booth.
Tampa made it to the 2nd Round of the Playoffs with Luongo.
I made it to 3rd Round of the Playoffs but then Schneider got injured.

ea needs to fix one big problem that has been plaguing the sports games and its the human players who like to play "keep away". there should be a random timer that forces the controlled player to dump the puck out of his/her zone. nothing is more aggravating than playing against someone who just plays keep away to get a win.

Yeah, that really irritates me. Lots of people in NHL 12 did it, too.

Has anyone else noticed that when you score a goal with Booth, it shows his picture from last year but every other picture of him in the game is a new one. I don't really get that

Does anyone know how to change the computers line changes to auto or on in be a gm mode? It's kind of ridiculous to be playing against the other teams top line the whole game.
