Support for PNG (trasparent) files and generally better graphics. More play-by-play, make it totally editable (there are some hard coded lines that you can't edit)

Also, I wish there was something along the top where it shows the teams and their records, the date, arena, etc to signify what game of the series it is (and the current status). Yes, you can figure it out by seeing Dallas is 3-2 and Edmonton is 2-3 but I'd rather it say Dallas - Edmonton, Western Conference First Round, Game 6 (Dal leads series 3-2) or something similar. Would like to see this on all games honestly.

Better video chalkboard would be awesome. One of the things I love most about hockey is the movement of the puck and the players. I wonder how far off that might be, though.

The ability to change the font sizes within the game itself.

I would like to have the team logos print out on the boxscores.

Basketball 2918 took some great strides forward in BOTH of these areas, so it would not surprise me at all to see something similar in Hockey 2018. Often things that work well one of the three of football, basketball and hockey tend to be implemented in the other two, usually within the course of one release cycle.  I'm not a betting man, but would be willing to guess we will see this kind of improvement in hockey.  Basketball's play-by-play is a LOT richer and the ball AND player movement much more realistic.  Let's hope the improvements on the hardwood translate to the ice!

Incrementally, it might not be that far off.  Basketball 2018 did a really nice stide forward in this department, so it would not surprise me to see the same for hockey.  Football also really upped the game in the chalkboard department, so I would suspect some of the new stuff we see now in the football and basketball 2018 games will show up in hockey 2018.

Would LOVE to see this one across the board, all games.  OOTP baseball does a great job with this.

I'd definitely like much more depth in the pbp - particularly related on on-ice altercations, fights, brawls, bench clears.  Include such texts as "sticks and gloves are all over the ice...."  "and now everyone is pared up" ... more direct connection with events on the ice to the start of altercations (pushing and shoving in front of the goal turns into a fight... scrum on the boards or in the corners or behind the net turns into a fight....  goalie gets run over... teammate retaliates... fight starts...  cheap shot (high elbow or bad wipeout on the boards... teammate retaliate) ... ditto with the bench clears... would love to see the pbp descriptions much longer, deeper and more connected to the action...

Beefing up the altercations... possibility for combo penalties (roughting/fighting ... roughing/fighting/misconduct... fighting/misconduct/game misconduct) ... stand-alone game misconducts...  (we currently have stand alone misconducts) ... match penalties... double majors for fighting (it happens now and then) ... how bout a line brawl or mini line brawl but no one throws punches ... so four players get roughing penalties (or even double minors for roughing)--- combo minors (high sticking/roughing ... cross checking/roughing) ... more inclusion in the pbp of third man in (it appears in the box score but the pbp doesn't really mention it when it happens)  ... things such as these...

  • Post game write up ... short narrative on what happened ... Please see the SOM Baseball post game write up:
Center fielder Tommie Agee had 3 base hits and Tom Seaver took a no-hitter
into the 7th inning as the New York Mets defeated the Montreal Expos by the
score of 7 to 0 at Shea Stadium.
Seaver(1-0) simply dominated Montreal.  He didn't allow much, just 1 hit and 1
walk in 9 innings.  Seaver mowed down 12 Montreal batters.  The right-handed
Seaver had his no-hit bid broken up by Rusty Staub who singled with one out
in the 7th inning.  New York finished with 15 hits in the victory.  
Carl Morton(0-1) absorbed the loss.  He was unable to control the New York
offense and allowed 9 hits and 2 walks in 5 and 1/3 innings.  
'Everything felt great' Seaver said. 'I had a good fastball, I felt I could
throw it by everybody today.'
This would be okay so long as it is:  a.) optional (can be toggled on or off) and b.) user editable (as in OOTP baseball).  I'm a former wire service sportswriter and frankly the standard generic game recaps make my head hurt trying to read them.  I typically do my own write-ups or edit if it is editable.
