Every year, EA Sports releases a new version of their NHL series. Over the past few years, the versions for XBOX and PS3 have become award-winning titles. They established a solid base of gameplay back in 2006 or something and have compounded upon that year over year.
They've gradually included things such as:
-Be A Pro mode, where you play as a single player throughout a career.
-Be A GM mode, where you're a GM and can either sim a couple seasons or play the games while being the GM.
-EASHL, where you can play with friends online as a team against jokes from Sweden.
There are a dozen or so more of these little improvements that have slowly molded the NHL franchise into what it is today.
But every year, they also have to reject certain features in the game.
And we have that list for this year's game...
