Idea for NHL 08

I enjoyed both NHL 08 and NHL 2K8 this year. I think NHL 08 made a lot of strides, but it is most fun while playing as the goalie. So much fun in fact, that I think I am going to play an entire season as a goalie. As in real hockey there are times when a goalie is extremely busy and focused and other times when the puck is at the other end of the rink. During these times it would be nice to get a better view of the action. While it is realistic to see from the perspective of what a real NHL goalie sees, it is a bit boring at times. This is a video game after all, not the real thing. I am proposing that the developers add a button that lets the user switch quickly to the action by following the puck or a particular player. They could map it to the right bumper button and allow you to switch back and forth between the goalie and this view. It sure would be nice to see what is going on in the other end of the rink more clearly. EA if you are listening, this is a freebie.
