So i recently Threw down 90 dollars Canadian, to buy NHL 17. I have been playing it Non-Stop and boy is my wife mad. A couple of my friends and I have started a team in the new EASHL and for those of you who do not know what that is, it is a Online Mode and you take control of one man on the ice and other players also have one player. You build your team up from a little crappy arena that you would find in a little town. Then you start building your team up by unlocking Logos, Jerseys and even Arenas.
So it was us against the world and boy did we suck. we went on a 10 game losing streak, with our excuse that we never played together and that we would get use to it eventually. So our record was 2-12-1, We were like the leafs of this new mode, we couldn't figure out why we were not scoring. Then this past weekend we finally started playing like a team we put some incredible games under our belts with blow out games 7-2 and 8-1. We were on our way to the next division and then the next. Finally after a long fought weekend we are finally on top of our game and ready for the playoffs. Our record stands at 14-13-3 we haven't lost in awhile.
If you are a big hockey guy and you have friends who also enjoy hockey i cannot recommend EA's NHL 17 this year, this game has so many improvements like the new Franchise Mode were you are the owner of a NHL team and you build them up, change ticket prices, trade players, improve your building or relocate your team to one of the many other cities looking for a NHL hockey team.This is the best hockey game we have seen since 2005. Dropping 90 bucks for this game had me squirming but after 20 odd hours of playing it, i can honestly say it was worth it.
So go out and buy your copy of NHL 17.
