Really annoying that this won't be integrated into the Franchise and Be A Pro modes... It would increase the immersion a lot to be able to represent your country as either a coach or a player. A missed opportunity that now results in everyone only playing the World Cup once and then continue our Franchise/be a pro modes as usual

I completely agree here. The biggest example is obviously FIFA, where as a player or franchise, you can go out and play for your country.
Even 2K is jumping on this bandwagon, and if NHL is also now integrating a country vs. country feature (in this case, through the World Cup of Hockey), the gold standard is to have it integrated into other features.

Not to ~nitpick~, but this isn't entirely accurate.

NHL 2005, which came out 12 years ago, also had a World Cup of Hockey mode.

That is one of the things they do that drives me the most insane. Just say improved, or revamped.

It's like boardplay and the net-front battles. You don't have to convince me it's a brand new idea. Plenty of things have been done before.

I guess at the end of the day, it's just splitting hairs, but it does drive me a bit crazy.
