I really want NHL 09

NHL09 is being touted as the best hockey game of, well, ever.

Be a Pro mode, the 6-on-6 online play, the Montreal legends, you name it.

I've been reading review after review after review as well as various message board threads and I've been listening to my friends talk about forming teams to play online. Now, I would buy it, there's just one problem,

I only own a PC.

No XBox, no PS3, no GameCube, no Wii. Heck, I don't even own a Nintendo. But I do own a PC.

And it wasn't long ago that EA Sports made great hockey games for my amusement. But now, I'm faced with the wait time of over a month and the likelihood that I'll be getting a watered-down Be a Pro Mode, no 6-on-6 online play, no Montreal legends, no real way to use the defensive skill stick on my keyboard, and a game that will probably have more glitches than the beta version of Windows Vista.

In all seriousness, I don't know how to make it another three weeks or so until the start of the season with absolutely nothing to chew on.

There's always pong I guess.

Nothing has ever had more glitches than the beta Vista.
But in all seriousness, I have the same problem. NHL08 on the pc is just not good in comparison to the consoles, and I reckon they'll be phoning it in this year as well.
I do have a nice gamepad which will hopefully give me the opportunity to use the "skill stick", although last year's "skill stick" was just awful...
