A bigger selling point for me would of been instead of x-factors for a few players they could of been advertising that they spent a lot of time on building accurate rosters for this years game with real separation between first and second line players and 3rd and forth line players and it might of created more of a buzz than this x-factor gimmick that you could almost recreate by editing the roster yourself.
You would think attributes would do this on their own...if they really want separation and unique players, in-depth tendencies need to be added, not a badge with super powers doing the work the existing attribute system should already do.

Looking forward to these.
I think if it's like madden then what might happen is if for example McDavid has wheels ability,skating with the puck it might be 92 but when he's in the zone it's like 95-98.
If someone is already at 99 in the skill they would temporarily be 102-105.

They are already elite in the skill but when they're in the zone you will notice and have a harder time stopping them.

Might make you line match to have your best checking line on while they're superstar is in the zone or double shift your superstar if he's in the zone assuming it's a time based expiration to the ability.

But it is in NHL 21 the same when you come into offensive zone.

Ryan Oreilly has a ‘elite faceoff ability’ skill?

Stupid.

Some things on the list should be changed in my opinion but I still like it.

What about X-Factor in franchise mode? Will drafted players be able to become X-Factors or will it be just the 50 players that already have it?

As I understood, yes the fantasy Players from the Draft will have too.

I think a lot of these so called X-factors are rather dubious. Like for instance Connor McDavid has "Wheels" and is described as "great at skating when he has the puck"... Umh, Really? If anything he should have an X-factor called "0-60" and allow him to blow by a defending player in an instant (just ask Reilly) :P

It's time to innovate EA, not stay with the same old tired experiences we've had and seen since NHL 2004.
