So I just got my copy of NHL 11 today, and I've gotta say I'm pretty annoyed. I'm glad they've included the CHL and made some tweaks to the game, but there are some roster players missing. So far Ruslan Salei and Mike Modano are nowhere to be found in the NHL. I used the Salei from the Belarus international team, but I can't seem to find Modano anywhere.

This is really frustrating to me, as I feel like I just spent $80 for a half-assed game. If it's an oversight on my part, I'm ok with it, but I don't think it's right that I'll need to use their roster update to include a 40 year-old veteran. Anyway, if any other gamers on here could chime in and give me some help it'd be appreciated.

Did they guess on Kovy? I'm guessing that was too close to production (don't play console games/don't have a TV).

In recent years I haven't bought the game until the season's started so you get the proper roster updates.

He is not in the game. It is disappointing but you can create him and there is a face that kinda looks like him. The Modano name is still in the game so they will say his name.

It sucks but the gameplay is much improved so I don't think it is to big of a deal.

19 is still not hanging from the rafters at the Joe, that pisses me off more.


Edit: Apparently there is already an update that has Modano on it you just have to download it. Read this in another thread.

Even as a Wings fan, I think there is FAR more to this game then Ruslan Salei and Mike Modano. As with every NHL that comes out, I'm sure rosters will be updated soon enough.

I've been rocking this thing for 12hrs off and on, and I think it's made some great steps. Not a perfect game by any means, but the fact you start your BAP mode in the Memorial Cup blew my mind. Not only that, but I get to play as my ACTUAL home team; the Sudbury Wolves!

LMAO,

I was just going to come on here and complain about the same thing. 80 still seems high, mine was 60. I am sure they will have a roster update soon.

What kind of color is red? Red is a warning, a declaration, a color that says I'm ready to do what it takes. Red is focused and driven because red doesn't like second place. So what kind of color is red? Their kind.

Thanks for the help guys. I usually wait for the roster updates, but I can't recall a time where veteran players were missing from the NHL/AHL/Free Agency. I've been buying the games for years now, so I'm used to having to wait for some roster updates. I guess I'll have to do the same for now.

what i hate about the NHL series is the roster updates. The do updates like every 2 weeks or so, but if you want to use the new roster update, you have to restart your dynasty. Lame.

When i played the demo, it felt as if the gameplay was not in tune w/ the controller (example: i go to pass, but the pass doesnt happen until well after i push the button). It felt really laggy. :(

No delay here, great game... just the roster updates.

EA puts out consistently good sports games.

Modano and Salei are on the roster update. when you try and play on-line you have to do a roster update and it has Salei and Modano.

Anybody looking for the more up to date rosters, you need to try to connect to an online game and it will prompt you to download the roster update. It has Modano and Salei.

Modano and Salei are definitely in the game seeing as I played as the Wings this morning and both were on the team.
