NHL 09

NHL 09 from EA Sports comes out on September 11. I've always been a big fan of this game and have purchased every issue from NHL 94 to now. I get excited every year around this time for it's release. No different this year for NHL 09 as a lot of great new features will be in it.

The one I want to focus on right now, is a feature that was reported on
Celebrating the 100th year, Habs legends will be in the game and not just scattered throughout, but as a all time great Canadiens team.

Check out these photos of Ken Dryden and Guy Lefleur.

The Wikipedia entry says it best;

"Commemorating the Montreal Canadiens 100th "birthday" NHL 09 will feature a team of all-time Canadien greats, such as Maurice "Rocket" Richard, Jean Beliveau, Guy Lafleur, Larry Robinson, Serge Savard, Guy Lapointe, Bernard "Boom Boom" Geoffrion, Toe Blake, Dickie Moore, Bob Gainey, Yvan Cournoyer, Steve Shutt, Henri Richard, Howie Morenz, Jacques Lapperiere, Doug Harvey, and Emile "Butch" Bouchard. Also lacing them up for the Centennial "Habs" in net will be Patrick Roy, Jacques Plante, and Ken Dryden. In addition to gamers being able to play as the team, they are also able to enter "The Centennial Tournament", in which they will have to go through an eight-team bracket for a chance to play against these all time greats."

That's it for now.
