I'll probably get on this, but I might not have the game as soon as it comes out.

XBL: Blubba Jenkins (Offensive defenseman or goalie, haven't decided)

I'll probably get the game the day it is released.

XBL: p0S3R85

It's kinda hard to tell without playing the game but I'm thinking either a speedy winger or a stay-at-home D

You can throw me down for absolutely any position.  I'm solid all around (basing that on last years game), and am willing to jump in on any spot.

Should we start thinking about team names? I'm assuming "Bombers" might be in there..

How about team jerseys and colors?

The game should be out in a few weeks.. still seems far but still :)

Man... I think I might want to get this game for this feature alone. But if I get it, I want to get it for PS3 for free online. Can someone tell me if the PS3 version of last year's NHL was any good? I had the 360 version ('cause I only had a 360 back then) and I want to get the PS3 version this time... I think....

the only known difference last year was that the ps3 version was running at 30fps. This year both versions are confirmed to run at 60fps. Aside from that, the only confirmed difference between the two versions (NHL 09) is that the 360 will support custom arena themes, goal horns, game horns, soundtrack...etc...while the ps3 version will not have this functionality, unfortunately.

after playing the demo... i think i prefer using center over wing.. :O Even tho crosby and zetterburg both shoot left i found i had more success at center but then again this is offline demo..

what'd be even better is if in the jersey creation stuff there's one with a generic bomb on it...that'd be fantastic

For Xbox 360 I created the team.. "Giant Bombers"

When you go search for EASHL teams you'll find it.. It's in alpha order.
There are many teams out there already.. though the biggest roster was only 4 players so far that I've seen.

In terms of picking jerseys... The way I believe it works is you have to pick the Logo from the teams available in the NHL, AHL, and the Euro leagues. It doesn't include custom logo's unfortunately...

Another minus I discovered is that you can't seem to customize the jersey after picking the logo... So i'm assuming we have to stick with the actual team's jersey..

I ended up picking the Vityaz CHEKHOV logo from the Superliga league. (Click link to see image) http://www.eurohockey.net/logos/ru/podol.gif

The logo seemed to be the closest thing that relates to Giant Bomb with the B being at the center and all... I didn't want to use the Bruiins logo or any NHL logos because I wanted to make it as unique as possible..

Anyways.. lets have some feedback on the team logos whether it was a good or bad idea.

seems good, i'd have no problem with the bruins though (2nd fav team) haha.  I'll get my copy tomorrow I'm sure (friggin' western canada...always gets boned on shipping)

Wait, wait...what?  Guilds?  In NHL?

What, have they replaced hockey sticks with swords all of a sudden?  When did this become something with a medieval tone?!?!

I'd probably be best as a winger or defenseman.

Just an update since a few people have added their gamertags / psn accounts..
Tried to start inviting XBL people to the Giant Bombers but it wouldn't let me.. I'm assuming it won't until you get the game for the first time..  So as soon as you do get a copy of the game, sound off and i'll send you an invitation to the team.

Also, I wouldn't object to using the Bruins logo either.. It's all up to us to decide as a team ;)
