Helmetless Canadiens Legends Team in NHL 09

EA Sports NHL 09 producer David Littman has been a busy guy this summer. While the EA team is putting the finishing touches on NHL 09, Littman has been all over the place promoting the game and all of it's amazing new features as well as the September 9 release date.

Yesterday, he sat down for an interview with Gamespot and played an exhibition game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Montreal Canadiens Legends team. The Habs team features helmetless players.

Yes, that's Ken Dryden. Littman points out that Dryden
also does his famous leaning on stick pose.

The Canadiens Legends Team will feature the likes of Larry Robinson, Boom Boom Geoffrion, Maurice Richard, Jean Beliveau, and Doug Harvey amongst other greats.

IMO, it would be great to have the option for helmetless hockey on all the teams. Maybe even take it a step further, and let 'em play on a pond instead of an arena.

Wonder how they decided to give Harvey the "C"?
