Toronto Maple Leafs since birth. I've played about three EASHL drop in 6 vs 6 games and tried a 3 vs 3 series game where you start off with a shitty team and have to advance. The 3 vs 3 addition would make for a really fun party game with pals if I still did that shit. Have some drinks and whatnot. It's more along the lines of a non stop arcade mode, it was a decent addition I'MO. After the first period Edmonton swapped out a player for their mascot with his own special entrance. Dude was awesome too.
The EASHL games I've noticed sharper defensive sticks and they seemed to have adjusted the defensive defenseman passing abilities and overall passing in general. I noticed the senseless sideways pass is still there though. That was a little disappointing. But the games I've played (all defense position) were good and it seems more finely tuned now. I never really explored any of the other modes yet, but I'm really liking it so far for drop in games.
