It seems that defensemen are being easily exploited. The pokecheck is under-powered and slows you down drastically after using it once, allowing forwards to walk around you. If you do manage to get the puck from an opposing player, there is a slight delay before you are able to do anything with it, so it's bumped off your stick almost instantly. The passing (especially D to D on the point) is extremely sloppy, no matter what build you use. You can't charge down passes like the PS3 games. You can't tie up in front of the net. The builds seem very similar to me, with the biggest differences being the height/weight of the character.

Anyways, I really hope some of these issues will be resolved before the game is released.
I agree with the majority of your points. Passing is terrible, especially as a DFD. I also get a bit of input lag, but that varies game to game.

I don't know if I agree with the pokecheck though. I find that as a DFD, it's a very useful tool. Even when playing as a two way defender, the improvement to the stick that the DFD has is very noticeable.

I do think that they need to improve the passing and the responsiveness of the players.

I really enjoyed playing withe the Fatas during the beta - hope to play some more with you guys when the full game comes out.

Hey boys, I'll try to get some time tomorrow to play for the last day of the demo but if I don't it was nice to sneak in a couple games with the group (3G 4A isn't too shabby for my first go at EASHL). See you all in September!

I had a lot of fun playing the beta with the Fata's again, thanks guys. I'm looking forward to September for a whole host of reasons now.

Check out this patch they just released! Fixed all the negatives I had to say about the game. After playing beta and reading this, definately the best NHL I've ever played. Is there going to be a CP EASHL team that's some what active?

I am sure the team will be rather active. At the start there is always more players then we can handle but after a few months it settles down. I had a chance to play it on Xbox, They definitely are serious about making the fan happy about this release.

Might have more luck with the NHL 16 Thread in Tech Talk.
