The more I read about NHL 12, the more excited I am for release day. Even in the short demo I was also able to see a big difference in puck physics and teammate AI. If I'm about to intercept an opponent's pass behind my blue line, my wingers immediately start breaking up ice. Players cycling around the zone is much improved.

Also there seems to be greatly improved AI in the neutral zone on both offense and defense. The anticipation feature not only improves AI play, but it really helps the immersion as well.

Winning a fight with your goalie is terribly satisfying.

It's pretty intense when your players can fight eachother. :)
