How's your franchise mode going? NHL 18

Initially I wasn't too interested in the expansion mode.. but since I always play with the Blues, I think this year I'm going to dive into the new 32 team expansion mode and create my own team.

Just not sure yet if I'm going to make a team in Seattle, Quebec or some other city like Kansas City (if it's in the game).

I think it will be fun doing the expansion draft, then the rookie draft, plus.. it's a bonus for me being in the same division as the Blues so I can keep tabs on them as well as play against them.

Guess you don't really even have to wait for updated rosters if you're doing this mode.

What is everyone else doing?

Re: How's your franchise mode going? NHL 18

Just started an expansion franchise with the Hartford Whalers. Won my first pre-season game 4-3 in OT





Had the #1 pick in the draft and took Nolan Patrick who's starting on my 2nd line at a 77 overall.

Re: How's your franchise mode going? NHL 18

I tried the expansion mode tonight.. pretty cool stuff. Made the Seattle Sting and had a good time with the mode drafting and playing my first game.

I don't think I'll do a serious franchise with it though.. I already miss playing with my Blues.

This mode would be a good one to just sim and build up your team over many seasons!

^^ Hartford Whalers, good stuff!!!

I've been thinking of starting a franchise with the 32nd team. Not sure of a name but brining back the nordiques might be a good idea. Might try to get into it tonight

Are you guys seeing AI being a threat at all on breakways in your franchise? I play on Superstar, and the AI just isn't very scary :/

I have my created team on NHL 17 now.
Is there a way to get that on NHL 18 without having to create every player. uniform, rink again???

Has anyone else noted that if you "overpay" a player the contract ends up resetting to 925K?

I was under the cap floor in an expansion franchise (Viva North Dakota Killer Hawks) and went to sign a player at 10m to get above the floor comfortably to do a couple roster call-ups and send downs. But when the player ended up on my team he was at less than a million.
