    Winnipeg Jets yo! Other than that, I have no idea. I bought NHL 11, so I am not sure if I will get this year's or not.

    Game is pretty normal..More physical..your controller vibrates heavily when you hit someone or bump into them. Face offs are different..other than that pretty much the same.

    goalies can fight players or the other goalie
    you can hit people into the bench
    you can break the glass
    you can knock the net off

    Been playing it with my buddy. It definitely feels different which is good. One think I like is that when you go to check someone, if it's a really good hit at an awkward moment, you can fall over as well. Makes it more realistic.

    Re: NHL 12

    I just downloaded the demo last night and played it for a while. It's a fun game, but it was much more complicated than expected as someone who hasn't played a hockey game since sega saturn. I did enjoy it enough that I think I'll pick it up this weekend. It seems challenging, but I'm hoping I'll be able to learn how to actually score in it.

    Re: NHL 12

    Is scoring in NHL 12 as hard as it was in NHL 11? Cause I had one hell of a time scoring goals in NHL 11, even on rookie/easy difficulty. I would usually score 0-1 goal per game and routinely lose with scores of 3-0, 4-1, 4-0, etc. It was a very fun game and I had no complaints about NHL 11 other than the fact that I could never freaking score.

    First time playing any of the series and by my 5th game on easy I beat the lightning 7-0 with the Bruins. I'll probably be moving the difficulty up a level after a few more games.

    Re: NHL 12

    Sorry to drag this thread upward, but I had a quick question about NHL 12: does it have the ability to shorten the season or do you have to play a full 82 games? I know 2k hockey could make the season shorter and more doable, but NHL was stubborn about that. I can play maybe half a season, but I just can't commit to a season playing 82 games. Just curious. Thanks.

    Re: NHL 12

    Are you not willing to sim games? I know that doesn't answer your question, but I'm just curious.

    Re: NHL 12

    I answered my question. I just bought the game recently and just wanted to know if it was possible. No I am not one to sim games because I prefer to play them so certain players on my team get better stats and never want to leave it to the CPU to chance of losing a game.
