Sure they could've addressed issues but I think this approach of stripping down to bare-metal and giving is a new foundation is actually a step forward. We'll have to wait and see!
Took the words right out of my mouth.

Playing against speedsters and 100% accurate shooters made playing EASHL a chore. As well as the exploits. It wasn't hockey anymore it became who could exploit the game the most with their speed and cheese shots. There was no strategy at all to games.

I like that now you cannot have three grinders playing on the same line. You have to have a sniper, playmaker, etc on your lines to have success. I look forward to the new era of EASHL. This change is for the better.

Is there a player differentiation - like Crosby plays as Crosby and Tanner Glass plays as Tanner Glass - speed wise, puck handling ability, shooting accuracy etc.

Please tell me "Yes" to these 2 points.
As I posted in the other thread. They spent the majority of their time playing EASHL. And didn't play that much of the other game modes.

Took a nap and came back to pages of responses. I'll try to get back to as many as possible either very late tonight or sometime tomorrow. I will not be home this evening.
Thanks for the responses guys.

Question Re: NHL 16: Article Breakdown from EA GameChanger who PLAYED the Game

I don't want to have to read all 9 pages of this thread to see if this has been answered or asked previously (so forgive it has been):

Can you play Season Mode with the Ultimate Team ?
I only saw info in the modes that dealt with UT
If I want to play the Canucks in an 82 game season (and sim some of the games)...Can I do this in '16 ?

Please, no cutting remarks, such as "Of course, you idiot"!
