Its more refined than 10, it seems. Passes now leave your stick when you release the button. Faceoffs are a bit more engaging with a battle, and ability to select forehand or backhand. AI seems a bit better in terms of cycling the puck. Hits are not massive crashes everytime. They varry from small rub out to slow take down to the big hit.
An all-new faceoff system, quick dekes, the new Hit Stick, and hip checks are just some of the many gameplay improvements that make NHL11 the most authentic hockey video game experience to date.

I'm pretty stoked for Ultimate Team. This has been one of my favorite features in Madden '11. I had a huge disappointment with NHL 10 last year where it wouldn't connect to the EA Servers no matter what. Tried it on two PS3's at different places with different internet providers. Not much help from EA at the time but still enjoyed it.
The demo does connect! Also super excited about CHL teams being included this year.
