Re: NHL 17 Impressions

Is the cpu still keen on holding the puck outside the blue line and trying to play keep away from you instead of chipping it or dumping it in?

I'm sure you (and everyone here) knows what I mean.

Re: NHL 17 Impressions

how is the neutral zone pressure??
Does the cpu still allow you to skate the puck up to the blueline with ease??

I would say they were more than competent. I won the game 2-1 and the goal we gave up was my fault. From my one game, I didnt see a ton of errors by the AI teammates.

I didnt get a chance to look at the camera angles. Sorry.

Cant speak to their real life counter parts but I did see some differences. For example, Holtby tended to stay close to the net while my goalie in BAP was more aggressive and worked away from the net a little more.

I saw more dumping than I did in 16 but not enough for my taste. Maybe that can be tweaked/fixed with sliders.

Was there a Day 1 patch for download or a tuner? If so I'm wondering what the changes were.

There was a Day 1 tuner. I dont know what the changes were because I downloaded it immediately.
