    Would this appeal to the younger generation of "new" fans? Speed really comes across.

    Only if it were available on CDrom, comes with joysticks & you can control the players & play. Wonder if anyones come up with that one yet?. :sarcasm:

    Watching that for 15 seconds makes me feel sick, that wouldn't work in a game format, I don't even see how it's debatable.

    The NHL have done a fantastic job promoting the game post lock out, this would be officially going over board. There's nothing wrong with how the game is shown.

    I kind of like it. I think it is difficult for the average fan to comprehend the skill level in the NHL, how tight the spaces really are for passing, the incredible skill of these guys. This would help some. Unless you've played at this level, everyone should sit on the glass for a few good NHL games. This is the closest I've seen so far.

    It's does feel a bit disassociated though, but as technology improves that should improve too.
