The Sedins?? Maybe too early? Thought Bert would be on that list though with Nazzy

Got the game, play is smoother although pretty similar.

 

I'm gonna try and get into the HUT thing, I don't get it so far...

initial feedback from people with early access suggests that while the gameplay looks exactly the same for the most part, it actually plays and feels a lot better than previous years. Seems like some good changes to franchise but for the most part other modes appear to be mostly unchanged.

But is it tremendously tremendous?

I can't justify spending out  of pocket for it. I may put it on my Christmas wishlist but that is far as I will go.

Any word if they fixed the potential engine for franchise mode? i was seeing a lot of teams on YouTube with all 99 oa's on their team. 

 

I can see this being a nice new game but after spending $200 on the last two hear copies I have my reservations. I will hold out hope they continue to work on franchise mode. 

 

It seems a lot of franchise mode fans like to sim. Do any of you still like to just grind out the games over a full 82 season? I wish they would bring back shortened seasons. 24-32 games a season would be perfect.

I do.  And I agree.

 

I play every single game (except exhibition).  I'm currently in my 4th season and I am going to finish it before I pick up NHL20.  I think they should have options on the season length (they used to).  While I think 24 is too short (you don't get to play every team) I would love to see 30, 42 and 54 game options.

 

Is there still an expansion option in there?  I guess maybe 30 games would need to be 32 games.

 

I also miss having the all-star game.

I always play every game including preseason. 10 minute periods, with goalie reaction settings maxed out to balance the scoring a bit.

That's surprising considering 2/3 of the WCE line is there (Morrison and Naslund).

I haven't seen a lot of franchise modes that have been simmed past 2-3 years, so hard to tell. I would assume knowing EA they haven't changed it, they continue to add gimicky features to the gameplay. While they do work well and add to meaningful gameplay, I don't recall them addressing any of the core franchise gameplay mechanics that have been missing since previous gen.

Just looking through again, didn't see Saku Koivu either. Seems to be a notable miss for Anaheim.

Of what I have seen on the new franchise mode.. I think I am most pleased with the player NHL ETA's. The player interview aspect is nice in theory but it is clunky and extremely genetic. I hope they can expand on it moving forward.
