Winter Classic/Stadium Series would be great additions to franchise mode. Just create three or four generic stadiums (if licensing is an issue) and work them into the schedule. Authentic coaches (or coaches at all) with distinct systems would also be a nice add.

Gameplay is pretty solid this year imo. Just need roster share & improved teammate AI.

never getting what the community wants is pretty standard for Ea in general.

I have been disappointed with EA and their NHL series for years now. Nothing about the game compels me anymore, and I wish we had more competition and choices when it comes to hockey video games. The rubber band AI, arcade like pinball gameplay, end to end rushes with no real AI zone setup and play. It's pretty brutal if you ask me.* I don't* even think the frostbite engine will make any difference.* I won't be buying anymore EA NHL games going forward. I've had enough!

My biggest beef with NHL 19 is the controls. I have NHL 15 and the controls for that game are what I'm used to. I think they're great. But then I sampled NHL 19* and the controls were so complicated that I couldn't learn to used to them even after doing the training things.* So I had to dumb it down to he hybrid controls and they're not nearly as much fun to play with as the NHL 15 controls. The only other option was the basic NHL 94 2 button controls. Just think sometimes less is more.

It's becoming this way for many of us around here in the NHL forums. I haven't touched NHL in a couple of weeks and when I do play a franchise game, it's one and done. Guess I'll have to go the text route with something like FHM 5.

I'm just happy I'm finally enjoying a Madden football game. At least I have a console sports fix.
