the game is defiantly better than last year as a goalie's opinion i feel like the puck pick up might have to be adjusted when trying to cover i know its a little different but goalie should at least know once in a while where the puck is at and cover when in butterfly or pressing Y. Also the speed of going post to post should be a little faster to protect from wrap arounds. might have to do with weight and height havent tested it out that much but its just a thought. last thing as a goalie..PLEASE MAKE THE GOALIE INTERFERENCE HAPPEN MORE OFTEN...if theres anything that i hate is when i get bumped even the slightest its taking away my chance to make a save. and giving them the opportunity to score. Other than that the game is great, love the speed of it and everything about it so far. Defiantly an improvement from last year.
