As long as I can put the right color clown nose on the fan in section E row 13 seat 22, of course I'll forgive how playing defense means getting pucks banked in off you more often than something actually resembling defense!

The momentum meter they put on the screen until '03 never went away, they just made it invisible.

Looks like they are moving towards FIFA's progression system. If they are i cant wait to play it.

Where did you read that? I read it unlocks customization items for players, teams and arenas. Not progressing your player so he gets better, the progression is just for unlocking items.

From what I understand, they are staying put with player templates, just going to offer more of them.

Personally I prefer it this way. It leaves the game as skill vs skill, not a player's progressed build and skill vs skill. Whenever you have attributes involved in making a BAP better, kids will always find some glitch or exploit to use, so the way they have it now is the way to go.

From what I've seen and read, I am VERY excited now for 17

They actually answered the similar question in https://www.easports.com/nhl/ask'

As you said, its the same system, but the idea is it offers you rewards for those accomplishments, and it seems like they aren't separated per player class anymore.

The changes they are making sound good on the surface, but I'll be more interested to see how the net battles and extended stick lifts work defensively.

I did ask EA for a few things to add into the game.

Customized camera which they already said they can't do.

Indicating PP and SH goals in the boxscore.

Unlock Cooperalls and the ability to not wear a helmet, so I can have a balding mullet free flowing in the wind a la end of career Harold Snepsts.

To have the Tie Domi heavyweight belt celly after a fight.

Let's see what they add

I didnt read it anywhere...i was hoping they were headed down that path. I want to be able to at least change my height and weight which should have an impact on a few attributes.
