Can't wait to see how this will turn out!

EA mentions they have added over 300 gameplay refinements. Is there - or will there ever be - an all-inclusive list as to what these gameplay refinements are?

Are those release dates right? It actually comes out in Europe before it releases in the US? :P

" In Play Now, relive the emotion of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals as the game inserts you into the third period of a match-up between the Boston Bruins and the Vancouver Canucks -- will you embrace history or rewrite it?"

Man, that's cheesy as hell. And another thing, wouldn't it be so much cooler if they made every third period 'battle' a close game, instead of you trailing or leading by 4 or 5 goals. I'd prefer to go into the third tied or down 3-2 or something everytime instead of losing 6-1 or worse...which happens all too often on these demos.

Agreed, I wish they would just make it a tie game especially if they want to show off the anticipation AI. I don't want my defenseman joining the rush or pinching to keep the play alive with a 1 goal lead late in the 3rd (especially in the cup finals).

They've done the same scenario the past 3 years with the demo, so I'm not surprised. I would like something different, ala Madden and NCAA where you get access to a FULL game with shortened periods.
