Default NHL 09: The First Real Next-Gen Sports Game?

Looks like NHL 09 is about to have a massive online feature with this EASHL. Sounds amazing and didn't expect to see this, hope it turns out as good as it sounds...

NHL 08 was pretty darned fantastic. 08 was the first edition of hockey I'd ever played where the AI had the players be on the ice and position themselves in a realistic manner. Huge step up from 07 and leaps and bounds better than any hockey game in history. The skating was also physics based in 08, compared to the "rails" feeling skaters had in past games.

09 looks to be an incremental improvement with added physics for collisions and stick lifts for defense, as well as dumping the puck into the neutral or attacking zone. I am, however, stoked for the new online "Be A Pro" mode. It should be something to watch and play!

I only play offline for my hockey - you can never set MY sim settings online and nobody can handle the settings i play on cuz its too realistic for them.

I think everyone who has ever played NHL is the king when they play OFFLINE.

I assume if you ever did lose online it would be due to the fact that they were not using YOUR sim settings?

Well, because Madden is basically the same as 2002-03...NBA, all three games suck...MLB 08 is incredible...but hockey video games have always been fun, well maybe except the years on PS2...I am hyped for this and even if you don't like the NHL, you have to say NHL 08 was the best sports game of the past year, maybe even more. Maybe since MVP 2005...
