Lockout Proof NHL 2005

So I’m a big geek and I play a lot of NHL 2004 for PlayStation 2. It’s got this sort of GM-y function, where you not only play the game, but you also act as the GM, trying to make a profit and keep your players content. It’s a fun game, though.
So needless to say, I was pretty psyched to read this preview of NHL 2005. It’s like a month old, but it’s new to me. The cool new feature I’m looking forward to is being able to clear the crease and then telling the computer to shoot the puck for you.
I love clearing the crease. I hate a crowded crease.
This is huge in my world.
