The problem with that stat about GMC is that the reason it was so poorly subscribed is that it was poorly implemented. "No one used that mode", well, sure, numb nuts, it was broken. A bunch of leagues would suddenly stop working; if you knew there was a significant possibility that you'd put a bunch of time and effort into building a team only to lose it all because EA can't make a functional product, would you bother? Or if you DID that, and then lost it, would you start over from scratch? Probably not. That doesn't even take into account the menu load times and other just basic logistical issues with that mode. The concept was fantastic, the implementation was crap. If they did it right it'd be the best mode in the game.

HUT is obviously just a cynical way to make money, which is why I resent and won't play it. It's pay to win crap. EASHL, I'll do, but it's annoying if you don't have a team to play with because drop in is a waste of time. Goddammit teal! Stop being a prick!

This cover vote looks unbelievably rigged and stupid.

Where's Gaudreau? Why is McDavid against Voracek? Where is the Crosby option?

We can't let McDavid be on the cover, you guys.

Non-existant for what he'd cost to put on the cover, I assume.

Jamie Benn makes perfect sense.

I actually just subscribed to this service on the weekend, its pretty cool. Well worth the 29.99.

On topic

Personally, I don't really care about the cover anymore. I usually make my own and print it off.

I wonder what features that were available in 1998 and then removed will be re-introduced as new features this year??

Can't wait.

As Burke would say worrying about the cover is like worrying about the weather.

I worry more about the game.

Do you make your own title screen and icons too?

McJesus will make the cover. EA has a plan to sell barf bags as a microtransaction.

Just show the goals, assists, and points a player has after they score a goal in GM mode. Honest to Jesus, why was that ever eliminated?

Because EA had demonstrated a near criminal level of apathy torwards their consumers.

In season 11 of my be a gm mode this year I've had players mysterious age 10 years in an offseason. Wicked quality control, guys.

Yeah, this is why I won't buy another NHL game until after I know these types of kinks have been ironed out. I think I'm on 5-6 years now without paying full price for an NHL game.

Honestly, they could re-release 16 with this feature set, and I would be more or less pleased.

I would like some nice custom jerseys or the ability to design your own. The crap options they have had have been so terrible that there is no point in creating a team.

They removed create-a-team in NHL 16... Probably so they could bring the same 10 options back in NHL 17 as a brand new feature

It looks like they did for 17. Looks like you can also start a expansion franchise in GM mode. We will see how well done it is though.

Hopefully they fix morale. It's pretty silly that every player loses morale after being put on the trade block when in reality most have no idea and when you sit them out for a game. Jokipakka is stuck at 78 because I was rotating him and Smid and he didn't like it. I traded Smid so he could play every game but putting him on the third pairing still isn't good enough.

Morale system just didn't work at all, I ignored it completely.
