    The only new game mode we'll see is maybe HUT Drafts. After that, it'll be a few different gameplay features that are buggy as all hell and don't get fixed until next April. The cover vote is rigged as always, I'm gonna just save my money and carry on hoping 2K will once again make a hockey game.

      If 2k was going to make a hockey game, I think we would have heard about it by now. They got a license for their NHL game on mobile and the past two years have been the years where EA NHL fans have wanted to jump ship the most, yet we haven't heard anything from them. I don't play NBA games, but I've heard 2k is going the same way EA is going (focus on micro-transactions), so I honestly question whether it would be any better. The one thing that would be great is if they brought a hockey game that's moddable and fun to PC so we don't have to use NHL 2004 lol.

      I dunno, 2K does have its VC (the currency) centric gamemodes, without playing 2K16 it's never been a problem in my experience. I suck something terrible at playing sports games on PC, been trying it for a while and I just hate it. I can wait years for NHL 2K, I'm just gonna carry on hoping after NHL 16.

      Exactly... They should just update the previous years game really. Maybe just release a new one every 3 years or so just to get updated graphics or something. But then there's money.

      They make more money this way, obviously.

    Why is McDavid on that list?.. I won't be voting for any of those, but I am excited for this game.
    1. Tsubasa
      I'm not, it should be the Blackhawks stars or even Ovechkin. Not some ******, McDavid like RIP.

      On the game part, it's the same every year so.

      Tbh it looks like this might be pretty good. The core gameplay will hopefully be somewhat similar to 16, but additions such as net battles will probably make a big difference. GM mode also looks pretty good this year. Don't think it will compare to EHM, but certainly a step in the right direction.

      Just a bunch of noobs playing on, I'm personally still undefeated in all of the hockey games except for 14 haven't played it. I think it'd be cool, if they'd let you bring your ultimate team over generations of games.

      That's exactly why I don't play online. A majority of the people that play online either suck or use cheap tactics that kill the game (ie. skill zone defense). I find this is particularly worse in HUT between div 1-3. Hopefully this year the gameplay will be good enough for fun offline play (and hopefully no need to use the horrendous slider system to get good gameplay).

    Voting for none of them, due to the fact they are all pretty ******.

      Yeah, not a big fan of the choices either. I honestly don't like how McDavicd is put in the mix. Sure, he has been an outstanding rookie but with such little time in the NHL I don't think he belongs on the cover. I suppose it would make sense from a marketing stand-point, but if that is all they care about they should just give John Scott the cover lol. In all seriousness I imagine it will be Tarasenko. He got really popular last season with some of his amazing highlights (the Dubnyk one-hander especially). Either that or Benn.

      Wasn't to big on him, cause he beat my hawks. But, if I wanted to choose I'd pick him.
