EA SPORTS told us, at this same time last year, that NHL 12 would have the most authentic hockey experience because of the improved physics and momentum system they were putting into the game. Big guys and small guys would move the way they're supposed to move and you could use them accordingly. For NHL 13, then, why are we being shown how supposedly "terrible" NHL 12 was when it came to skater momentum and their ability to change directions? Because it's 2012 and there's a new game to sell. Skating is now perfect in NHL 13. We're paraphrasing, of course, because everybody knows the skating will be better in next year's game, and thus NHL 13's skating cannot be perfect. It's just not time to talk about that yet.

Just watch the trailer already.
