According to Alex Blonski, over at the "Games and reviews" column at Canada.com blogs, Canadian Eric Staal is EA's lastest victim, chosen to be cover-boy for the upcoming NHL 08 game.
Staal is apparently, a huge NHL 07 fan and that he played the mediocre '07 version "fanatically".
I guess most of us did, even if it wasn't very good, I hope EA Sports does a much better job this time around.
EA Sports has also acquired, finally, the AHL franchise that Gretzky hockey games have held so far, that's right, all 29 teams.
And EA realized how crappy their last game was as well, and they've fine tuned a lot.
