    Be a ref mode and/or a story mode like Madden or FIFA

    Why is the idea of being a ref so appealing to people? They used to have it in WWE games back in the day and the only fun part was screwing over a player you did not like.

    I agree. I hope Be A Ref mode never makes it to the NHL series. Much more better/important stuff to add to this series than be a ref mode like...........

    The Winter Classic (with snowfall during gameplay)

    5 man team celebrations

    Making season mode at least 5 years

    Hire/fire coaches in franchise mode

    Display series record and game number in the scorebar during gameplay in playoff mode

  • I would like to have the ability to type in play by play name for my pro because they don't have my name
  • Two words.... Bob Cole

    I don't care if they have to put together clips and sound bites of the man. Best commentator in sports history.

    Honestly I would prefer to have back "Bill Clement", he had the best sayings. Always enjoyed the "Bunch of Junk-yard dogs on raw hamburger meat" and also the "Why I oughta" both classics!

    I only play franchise mode so mines are just aspects i would like built upon in franchise mode.


    With the power of the new systems. I still dont understand why franchises are capped at 25 years. THat is hardly anything when you can have players play 20 years. It should be 100 years minimum. All drafts are random anyway so what the difference of going to year 25 to year 100. I dont play all the game, maybe 5-6 a year and sim the rest. I just like building teams up.


    I wish the stats/accomplishments of a player followed that on the NBA 2k series. As well as a few more things

    Tropheys won
    Stanley Cup (4): 2019, 2022, 2023, 2024
    Hart Trophy (1): 2022
    Vienza (1): 2023
    Calder (1): 2019

    Total Goals : 345
    Total assists: 434
    Total points : 779

    total hat tricks: 12

    ect.

    Also under the players stats instead of saying NHL please put the team name. Why is this so hard its been like this for years and very annoying.

    NBA also does a special thing like during the season for Season High / Career High in various categories Then has the leader of the current season and what date it happened which is clue so you can go back and look at that boxscore if you wanted to. (cant look at previous box scores on NHL)

    Please keep track of hat tricks. I have been waiting for that to be added but never is.



    At the end of the season in Franchise mode we only get see who is retiring. NBA takes it farther and shows what players and coaches are retiring. Then shows who is getting inducted to the hall of fame based on stats. That would be nice and if their number is retired by their organization. Please add this:


    They also have a thing were rules can be changed. That makes it fun .. To vote on salary cap, roster limits, expansion, draft rounds, trading deadline and so on. Some years multiple rules pass other times none do makes it fun.


    Players getting drafted. I see some that are 5'8 150 at age 17 but their size never changes. That would be nice if you add in something for some players to keep growing as sometimes some grow late. Or that a skinny 6'0 kid at 160 fills out to 185 by age 21. But for them to stay the same size is pretty lame.


    Which takes me into scouting:


    It seems in every NHL game the first 3 years. there is an enourmous amount of players to scout like 245 forwards in the WHL or 180 forwards in the OHL. By year 3 it usually hovers around 70-90.

    We should be able to hire different scouts one that specializes in forwards , defenders , goalies and depending on their rating is will determine how accurate the info is. You should be able to scout indiviual players based on where you think they will be getting drafted. NBA 2K gives you a mock draft and changes throughout the year. But you kind of know if you are a rebuilding team you will be scouting the top 5 in the 1st rd and players 25-40 for round 2 and so on.

    Scouting whole regions is not feasible. With one lousy scout


    as for coaches. We should be able to Hire/Fire coaches. We should have a Assitant GM, HC, Forwards Coach, Defense coach, goalie coach. All that help their respective players improve . As well as the scouting coaches i mentioned above. Trainer. Pretty much if NBA 2k has it in there use it.. Their system works well and is pretty realistic.



    Trades the AI needs some help.

    I should not be able to draft 2 prospects (highly rated but still 4-5 years away from the NHL) for a proven player that is 22 years old and rated a 90. Or trade my recently selected player at 16th overall and flip him for the 1st overall pick in the same draft as long as i throw in a 3rd rd pick. That doesnt happen. Seems the system only takes in account what that players trade value is. Some of those player with high trade value when drafted and they are 19 or 20. I usually trade them all cause it will be years before their rating improves from the 54 overall rating they have to something useful where they would be on an NHL team. I can trade them and get a top 5 player that is rated 79 every time. I dont mind doing that but i shouldnt be able to

    Don't forget goalie pads that can stop the puck, and players that move the direction that you want them to.
  • NHL 19 wish, for EA to give someone else a chance to make this franchise great again. I'm looking at you SDS

    He was being sarcastic. For a reason though...
  • More European leagues is annoying for fans of other leagues not getting to play with their local team if fifa can add few European leagues so can nhl is pretty unfair not to have the khl , French , Norway , British hockey league
  • Please add Slovak commentators as well
  • Please also add the Tipsport League

    It means that I want a game where the puck doesn't pass through objects and I have full control over my player.

    Item 1. Fix the AI. It's a joke. Your team mates make stupid plays. Seriously. Scrap all other "features" until AI is a feature you're proud of. Have the defensemen set to contain puck. Not one of them gets in the shot lane. And they constantly dive at the feet of the player shooting... penalties for days. Not to mention their pention for veering into you at the blue line? seriously. Your ai plays like a bantam team.

    2. Get rid of the magnetic puck. Opposing AI doesn't even make the stick check animation, but the puck floats onto their stick from yours. This goes back to point 1. If you had better AI, you wouldn't need to "cheat" to make the game seem difficult. And that brings us on to 3.

    3.Get rid of the ice tilting. It's so obvious it's not even funny. Every time you're in the playoffs, suddenly the odd game your team just becomes trash. And their 84 overall goalie becomes a brick wall. You can beat them all season long, but suddenly in this "suspenseful" playoff game, you're teams awful and theirs is godly. We all know what's happening. It's so obvious it's not even funny. Perfect evidence. 30 seconds left, and the opposing team passes through THREE of my players cross crease and scores. As a pc you can't even pass through the crease without the goalie grabbing it. You can't pass through ONE person. The computer AI passes through three and scores... Now if you had better AI you could do this without having to cheat with magnetic pucks, goalies letting in muffins, and the 🎃🎃🎃🎃 "fake" penalties. Segway to 4.

    4. Get rid of the fake penalties. So stupid taking an "elbowing" penalty every time you make a clean hit because you can't control elbowing. I know elbowing CAN come from charging and hitting from behind, but call them those penalties if that's what it is for. I've made plenty of clean hits to the side, and letting go of the speed stick. Still get elbowing at the worst time. Again, it's ice tilting. You're trying to make your game seem suspenseful and difficult. Go back to point 1.

  • Amen to add to the bit about penalties...please devs learn what charging is....2+ direct strides to contact...so sick of getting 🎃🎃🎃🎃 penalties when I've drifted, changed trajectory, or even slowed up prior to contact
  • My wish list???

    2K games??? .... pick up the phone and start making an NHL a game please.
  • A BAP from Europe
    Complete league for teams which plays in CHL
    Season carreer like in FIFA
  • Interesting
  • In be a pro it would be fun to start in other leagues like SHL or something. And also the same in the franchise. And it would also be fun in the be a pro that you could play for your country like World cup, Olympics and world Championship.

    I have a lot of concerns. I'm a hard core GM and BAP player and there are so many issues.

    BAP:

    - I hate the fact when you have a 89 overall BAP the coach still puts you on the second line because the team is playing bad. One time my player had 80 points in 60 games and I was on the 4th line as a 91 overall playmaking center which is just dumb, fix it.

    - Also EA you should implement a way so that as you are making your BAP you can edit his overall, including their potential. Maybe somebody wants to develop into a Dustin Brown, like a grit grinder but not develop into a 99 overall, maybe just cap off 85 based on the potential. I know this takes away from the whole point of growing as player but it still would be more fun if a 18 year old kid enters the league and starts to light up the league like Crosby or McDavid. This never happens in the sim, you have to actually play all the games in order to win the Calder.

    - Every time in the first year of my BAP I make sure that my player goes to the AHL in order to develop better and faster, but the stupid team calls up a 60 overall player for no reason? I wasn't even playing that great like come on.

    General:

    - Bring back the legends team, but this time actually put legends on the team (ie. Doug Gilmour, Wendall Clark, Lidstrom, Orr, Mike Bossy, Paul Kariya, and other superstars) This would just make the game more fun.

    - Fix the 🎃🎃🎃🎃 random crashes.

    - Connected GM mode, just bring it back how hard could it possibly be?

    Also why do you guys implement a new feature and then take it out the next game, thats just a cheeky way to make money. Although, I really do believe that if you implement a "Journey" kind of thing with hockey like what FIFA did with Alex Hunter, NHL can become the best sports game on the market.

  • Id love to hear and see pierres goofy 🎃🎃🎃🎃 in there with the crew.
    Good music that you actually hear at games or can you allow me to upload my own music, you're just kind of wasting time with it at this point because it's pretty god awful.

    it'd be nice to have touch passes that doesn't resemble someone whose never played before, PeeWees make harder passes, especially important if you're going to make poke checking the emphasis of the game, which your games tend too. In the defensive zone it'd be nice to sometimes just drill it off the glass.

    You're ultimate team and every EA ultimate teams pretty embarrassing compared to MLB the shows diamond dynasty. They update player rankings everyday, and make an actual point of buying cards and didn't necessarily matter the rating, and it wasn't so sloppily thrown together like ultimate team.
