this is EA, this is not hockey
how can you call this a hockey game when it is better by far to pass the puck out with the goalie 90% of the time rather than freeze it? Litterally there's a higher chance to let up a goal off the in zone faceoff than to just blindly pass it out into a pile of players with the goalie.....how do you call that realistic? I mean you can't even accurately dump the puck, most of the time you have a good 3 on 2 rush try to dump, and due to the absurdity of this abomination that EA calls hockey, it goes out of play. Even the worst goalies in real life have an .800 save% in EA the best goalies are saving 7 of 10 shots. Again completely unrealistic, and year after year EA does nothing to even attempt to improve it, in fact they add things nobody even asked for that exasperate the problem. Name one real hockey player that attempts more than 3 or 4 fancy moves per game, nonetheless how many do they actually pull off? But in EA world its normal to see 5 or 6 ridiculous moves flawlessly executed per rush!! EA it seems you have completely disregarded any strive for realism.
