I always do the free shipping and this is the first time it has happened, but if this becomes the norm I'll take my business elsewhere.

NHL 08 (XB360) was a blast. I may have to re-think my PS2 purchase if the shooting-stick is as much fun on that version.

Ted,
 
Can I map the "Pass" button to X and use the right-analog stick for shooting only in 08?

You don't have to map it.  That is how it is.  You can either pass with x or use R2 on the same controller config.

But you know that the ps2 08 controls are not the same as the ones you played today right?

Yeah, but the all the buttons can be re-mapped in the PS2 version, right?
 
Here's what I want to do:
 
Offense:
 
X = Pass
R1 = Speed Boost
Right-Analog = Shoot
 
Defense:
 
X = Switch Player
O = Body Check
Square = Hook/Tie Up
Triangle = Dive/Block
R1 = Speed Burst
 
If I can setup that layout I'd be happy. Also, can I aim to the player I want to pass to (with the left-analog stick) if I'm using "Quick Pass" (X) or does it automatically pass to the closest player?

You can have any of those controls custom, BUT you lose the shot stick if you customize controls.  You only get shot stick with the default hybrid controls.

Passing on "x" is default hybrid and yes you can control the direction of the pass with the left stick.  You can also pass using R2 and the stick.

Switching player on defense is "x" by default.

It's taken me 10 games, but I'm 80% comfortable (read don't have to think about what button to press) with the new controls.  In fact I'm worse with 07 controls now and am about equal on both games at this point in time. 

Putting the sliders back to 07 defaults has really changed my opinion of the game.  I went from a "not as good as 07" stance to a "very slightly improved over 07 with the slider adjustments to 07" stance.

Don't feel any pressure to buy it if you want to save for that 360.  I'll get some single player use out of it while I wait for my 360.

That sucks. NHL 07 let you completely customize the controls and still keep the passing on the right-analog stick. I still may pick it up though.

Brent,
 
Can you change the button layout on the 360 version and still use the right-analog stick for shooting?

You can change it to classic which lets you use the buttons and the R-Analog can still handle shooting, dekes and checking if you wish. It is what I use because I like to change players and pass with "A" button.

The buttons can not be remapped so you are stuck with them.

Something like

A - Pass/Change players
B & X - Shoot and poke check
Y - Body Check

The shoulders and triggers stay the same
