NHL 12 Demo Preview

image


Well, we are just a handful of hours away from the release of the official NHL 12 demo this year. At least potentially, as one of the few questions that remains about the demo is, when exactly is it coming out? We know August 23, we just don’t know when it will actually drop tomorrow. It could be 12:01 AM EST, or it could be sometime in the middle of the afternoon, no one really has any idea. ( Update - check the bottom of this post for the expected time ) Either way, expect a quick update from me tomorrow once it is officially available for download.

In the meantime, let’s go over what to expect in the demo this year, as we will be getting a lot more than we usually get from the annual NHL-series demo.  Additional Late Update - Two brand new videos from GameSpot.com have been added at the end.

The Case for Number One in Goal

image

Determining a first overall pick in this year’s fantasy hockey drafts is anything but easy, but we probably know this much: the first overall pick won’t be a goalie. Yet a goalie is an important investment to fantasy hockey teams, since only two goalies can be responsible for four out of a team’s ten stat categories in many fantasy hockey leagues. The need for solid goaltending explains why many starting goalies can fly off the board early in fantasy hockey drafts.

In Defense of Jeremy Roenick

image


Well, I’ve clearly been noticing the amount of heat JR has been getting lately, after this week’s earlier announcement that he would be included as a “Legend” in NHL 12. “Outraged” would be the best term to describe most fan’s reactions to this announcement. I will admit, that I too was a bit surprised at this news, considering I put a lot of time and thought into my own short list of candidates who I felt would be worthy of such an honor. Of that list of mine, 7 of the 9 players I named ended up finding their way onto the NHL 12 Legends list. The two exceptions were Roenick and Salming.

NHL 12 Update: New Legends Video, Winnipeg Uniform Info, and New Quick Clips

image


Earlier this afternoon, some NHL 12 fans on the internet found a new Legends video, posted exclusively on the EB Games (now GameStop) webpage for NHL 12. However, the video was kind of “hidden”, thankfully over the time it took for me to write this update, there has been a new link to this new video released by EA Sports in an exclusive with GameStop’s official site, which makes it much easier to find, and is of much better quality that the original one that was found.

Read on, as I’ll provide a link to this new video ( UPDATE - Days later, I finally have the video included in this post ), which reveals several bits of juicy new info on the Legends, including what their team uniforms look like, some info about unlocking them, and best of all, what their overall ratings will be! Also included in this update is some additional news about the Jets’ new sweaters potentially not being in the game upon release, and some new quick-clips about HUT and the EASHL.

Just minutes ago, the long awaited news finally dropped on EA’s NHL 12 Twitter Feed. Super Mario and Mr. Hockey are the final two Legends to be included in NHL 12. However, since EA’s official videos don’t allow for embedding. Expect an update in a few minutes when I find an embed-able version, which will be included below, along with some other thoughts on this final list of Legends in NHL 12.

Updated with video, and more…

Another Case For Number One

Is Sidney Crosby still the number one pick in fantasy leagues?
Mere hours after my posting suggesting that Crosby should be the first overall pick, Josh Rimer’s tweet about Crosby’s unlikeliness to be in the Penguins’ lineup to start the season was making the rounds.

NHL 12 Update: Salming, Roenick, and Roy Confirmed as Legends

image


My apologies for not breaking this news the moment it dropped, as was the case yesterday. I happened to oversleep by a few hours this morning… anyway, here is the scoop. First, in a video released on EA’s Sports Swedish Facebook Page, further confirmed yesterday’s news about Yzerman, and then went on to reveal that Toronto Maple Leafs’ Swedish defenseman, Borje Salming, will also be one of the included Legends in NHL 12.
