If you're looking for something newer, try NHL '06. If not, go with NHL '97

EDIT: A controller is basically a necessity for these games.

That doesn't explain why either.. why are you recommending an 11 year old game when they release an updated version every year. Whats so good about NHL 97 that makes it better than the 11 titles since?

This is not the THIRD time in this topic.. to please explain why.. instead of just raising your post count, how about actually giving some insightful posts, helping people and posting more than 4 word responses when your not even answering the question. WHY is NHL 97 so great compared to more recent versions? Why go with '06 rather than '07 or '08?

I think '97 is funner, just my opinion. '08 and '07 blew were buggy, horrible and didn't add anything substantial. '06 was the last decent release.

Forget EA`s nonsense. If you are a real fan check out Sports Interactive`s Eastside Hockey Manager 2008. A very legit sim and the best current PC hockey game.

if you dont own any NHL games, get NHL08. (for those that own 07 or 06, dont bother)

IF you want a classic, get NHL 2002

NHL '06. Thats the best one i've played. You'll have to do some modding, and if you're fine with it, do some heavy modding.

I modded the crap outt a 06, and its the best hockey game i've ever played! Sadly my HD crapped out, and i lost it.

Oh, and don't be expecting Next Gen Graphics like the consoles have on '07 or '08 if you decide to grab one of those.

Best Hockey game I ever played was Blades of Steel. A PC remake of that game would be fun.
