Yeah they are saying they're more durable the Fox pucks (which I loved oh nostalgia). But the players are also saying they can feel the difference. Will it matter significantly? I'm not sure but an awfully weird time to implement it.

They've apparently tested them in a few random games this year without telling anyone? But yeah, I read that Crosby for one mentioned he could tell a difference. I don't doubt there are others as well but his is the name I remember

Even if they can't actually tell the difference in a blind test, if you tell them, they will think they can tell a difference. The playoffs seem like an awful time to start this.
