Morale is fine if they want to keep going with it, but it would be so nice to be able to turn it off.

Since I was a little kid my hockey seasons have a running "story" to go along with them that I've always created in my head. Be it the rookie that got brought in for an injury and stayed with the team or the old piece of trash that played out the end of his career, it keeps things fun. The morale system totally screwed that up for me. I had a fun season going and my third line was lighting it up... then I find out that one of them hates the other one. It took something away from my nerdy, nerdy experience.

Morale was a big fail. Trade some bum from the AHL team and all of a sudden Michael Ferland is upset now. Rediculous.

McDavid makes the second round of the cover vote somehow

I actually wouldn't mind Pavelski getting it, given that he's probably the most underrated player in the league.

I'd be very okay with any of Benn, Tarasenko or Pavelski. I like each of those guys. Just not McDavid, I don;t see how he can be the face of the league after 40-some games

You don't think Benn beats him? I'd think he takes it.

Yeah McDavid getting through against Voracek was a foregone conclusion. Voracek had a bad year and isn't even the best player on his team.

I expect he'll beat Pavelski too, just because.

The rest of Canada might try to unite to block him out in the final round though.

If they put Scott on the cover, I'd specifically not buy it even though I want to.

They can put McDavid on the cover and he can break his clavicle again

I'm definitely going to pick up NHL 17 as I skipped 16.

I have a few questions regarding 16 compared to 15 (the latest edition I have):

How was BAP? NHL 15 seemed to dumb it back to NHL 11/12 days as I understood they improved it in NHL 13/14. BAP is my primary mode, with BAGM coming in second.

Also, how were the goalie controls in 16? 15 seemed clunky and cumbersome. I want to play a BAP goalie starting from Junior all the way up, if I could.

And in regards to the possibility of McDaigle on the cover, I'm going to be mocking up and printing out a John Scott All-Star cover.

Tarasenko vs Pavelski in the finals for the NHL 17 cover.

They gave McJesus the easy route and he still failed (thank god).
