NHL 12 Review Follow-Up and EASHL Club Update

image


Hey everyone, I know it’s been a few days. Feels like a lot longer for a guy who is so used to writing so often. Anyway, I just had a few things I wanted to add/correct/update from my NHL 12 review. As well as update everyone on how the first few days of KK’s EASHL Club System is going, as well as how the first few days of the first season (September) have been in the EASHL in NHL 12.

A Second Look at Goalies

image

In my previous preview of the top goalies, I had mentioned Tim Thomas, Roberto Luongo, Henrik Lundqvist, Pekka Rinne, and Ryan Miller as my top five options. Upon reflection and much debate, I discovered many other names that could be considered top 5 (or at least top 10). Many goalies are drafted in the early rounds of fantasy drafts, since top-notch starting goalies can be impossible to find on the waiver wire once the season starts. To help you find the right goalie(s), I have provided ten more goaltending options that could legitimately fall into the category of the NHL’s better starting goalies. And I promise that there will be no commercials while you read this.

NHL 12 Review

image


image

The time has finally come. My NHL 12 review is here. Granted I probably still could have used a bit more time with the game, and ran into a few bumps in the road along the way. Sometimes the puck takes a funny bounce though, and that’s hockey, you just have to roll with the punches, and always be ready for anything and everything. Anyway, without further delay, let’s get started.

There is so much to talk about with NHL 12, that it’s hard to know where to begin. Thankfully EA Sports sent me a little “Review Guide” along with my paperwork, so I’ll just use that for the basic structure.

If You Want to Win, Get the Geek

Do you play in a league that has different scoring settings from standard Yahoo (or ESPN or CBS) leagues? Many of us already do, so perhaps you know that you can’t completely rely on the default rankings.

KK to Have Official EASHL Club System

image


The official release of NHL 12 in North America is just around the corner, next Tuesday, and the early access download to be released later today, at 6PM EST for EA Sports Season Ticket subscribers.

So I figured today would be the perfect time to announce that Kukla’s Korner will have their own official EASHL Club in NHL 12 on Xbox 360. Well, not just one mere Club, but an entire “Club System” actually. Continue reading on for all of the details regarding this special announcement.

NHL 12 Preview - Reader Q&A

image


Thanks to everyone that submitted a question on Monday. I read the questions in email form on my phone as they popped up throughout the day, so I’ve had some time to think about the answers. Excellent questions all around though. So now let me get to answering them all to the best of my ability, starting in the order that they were submitted.

Note: Sorry that I was a day late with this, it took longer to write than I thought, due to the in-depth nature of many of the questions, plus a little glitchly complication I was having with my offline BAP, that I had to spend a few hours talking to EA about to work on fixing the issue and assuring it’s patched up by the time all of you get the game when it’s released.

Strong Up the Middle

image

In my last article on left wings, a few of you mentioned the positional dilemmas that we seem to face when drafting forwards. This is a great point, since not only do position eligibilities change from league to league (eg. Yahoo/ESPN/CBS), but also from year to year. As well, we also need to keep our eye on forwards with dual position eligibility.

NHL 12 Q&A Preview Coming Tomorrow!

image


Well tomorrow marks the early release download for the European Season Ticket subscribers. It also means the end to the embargo for reviews on NHL 12 set by EA Sports.

I figured that since all bets will now be off then, I’ll take some time out of my busy review schedule to answer any possible questions anyone might have about NHL 12. Since I’ll be free to talk about anything and everything then. So please submit your questions in the comments section of this post, and I’ll take some time tomorrow to answer all of them in a special Q&A style preview blog tomorrow!

Looking on the Left

image

We continue our preview of the top players at each position with a look at the left wing. In my auction league with bidding that is taking place all month, I am currently looking for a low-cost left wing option, of which there are plenty. But here are the options that you can reasonably pay top dollar for or feel comfortable drafting with an early-round pick.
