Hartford. I'm good.

If a team moved to Sask, the seats would be half empty.

Also I'd move Buffalo to Hamilton just to spite the Maple Leafs.

I'm not sure how many other games already have this feature, but i think the idea of picking a set amount of plausible cities is a good take.

That hurts as a Sabres fan, lol. I mean, I'm moving a team to Hamilton when I get the game, but I'll probably move the Blue Jackets or Coyotes to spare myself the pain, haha.

Can we substitute created teams at the start of a franchise? If not where is Atlanta? And also what would be the point of such an in-depth creation suite if they can't be used in the main career modes.

Haha I'm so moving a team to Saskatoon. You think Winnipeg is a small market team, you haven't seen anything yet haha

Now what we need next is league expansion. (see NBA 2K17)

Hasn't Phoenix been through enough with relocation speculation? (*through tears*) Just leave us alone, man!

Moving Phoenix to Portland or Seattle

As a Portland resident, and Portland Winterhawks season ticket holder, Portland deserves an NHL team... More than Las Vegas does!

The Blues finally move to Saskatoon.

Agreed!

Im relocating Phoenix to Seattle as The Seattle Thunderbirds, or to Portland as Portland Grey Wolves.

Going to make a version of the Minnesota Golden Gophers unis with a different logo set and city as inspiration.

Im also considering moving the 'Canes to Halifax. Always wanted to make Halifax Admirals or Mariners or something akin to that!

If the customization is akin to what NBA 2K16 had then I am so happy about this, I'll be spending ages with it if so,

For my Franchise Mode...

Arizona Coyotes - Las Vegas
Carolina Hurricanes - Hartford
Florida Panthers - Quebec City
Columbus Blue Jackets - Seattle

The fact that I can move a team to Houston may make me buy this game

Taking control of Ottawa and moving them to either:
Hartford, Milwaukee, Portland, San Diego or Seattle.

I want The Whale back, but I'm very tempted to move to Wisconsin.
San Diego would be a cool choice too.

I hope this is the case, that we can move/replace teams at the start and not have to wait a couple of years like Madden.

There are some logos/colors of teams that I don't care for. So if I want to get rid of the Devils and/or another team or 2, I want to replace them and not have to play a year or 2 with them 1st).

It needs to be like MyLeague in NBA 2K16 where you can upload images and then replace teams in the League when you start.

I've been thinking of the same thing. I wish you could swap an NHL and AHL team. I love Admirals (especially those old jerseys) but if you can't, I've been trying to think of a team name for a Milwaukee team, since our biggest things are dairy, beer, Happy Days, and socialist mayors...

I was thinking the Milwaukee Fox, in tribute to one of the Native American tribes from the area. Sadly, none of the others quite seem like a solid team name (Milwaukee Ho-Chunk!) and I think you could get a pretty cool color scheme for the Fox idea.

I wish I could move a team to Louisville.

I'm from Saskatoon and Im not sure I'd agree. The roughriders are one of the best supported franchises in any sport and that's for a crappy league in the cfl . The Saskatchewan rush sold out every game at 14000 people every game for a little known sport of lacrosse. I'm not sure how that would equate to 41 games but I bet they'd do alright.
