It is so bare bones and boring, I can't get into it because it just feels like I'm playing random hockey games that don't mean anything. Part of a great GM mode is making it feel like you're actually in the real NHL dealing with real people.
I can agree with you on the bold portion. It does seem a bit lifeless, but nobody really votes for it on the forums or on gamechangers (at least to my knowledge of skimming over the ideas) so nothing ever really changes.

Meh. Twitter. How about structure the draft like the most recent draft on TSN?

They at least made the menu background less depressing, I honestly prefered the menus from the '90s, NHL 2000, and NHL 2001. Then again I have a bias for the older games.

How about just bring back that entire GM/Franchise mode? That was quite possibly one of the best franchise modes I've ever played.

-Include all real GMs from the NHL in-game, so when I make trades and receive feedback it feels like I'm getting it from an actual GM, not preset text boxes in a videogame.
People will flip on the trades that Ray Shero manages to make. So they probably won't add this.

Yes. Take page from FIFA also and use that system if they can't make something new.

How about actually hiring staff instead of upgrading them? Although this contradicts with the "Bring everything back from NHL 2004's franchise mode". I really liked how I could hire my staff in NHL 2k7.

See earlier comment in this post about hiring staff. Needs to happen.

Variable attendance was a small feature in the older games, it was nice to see empty seats when my team was doing poorly.

Again, NHL 2k7 (actually, nearly all of the 2k NHL games had this I think.

NCAA Football 2005, ESPN MLB 2k5. In MLB 2k5, sometimes if you tried to trade a guy, the player would say "But I don't want to go to [insert city here], I have a family here and I like it here. (something like that).

As a GM, you should be able to deal with the media as well, denying/confirming trades, things of that nature.
Ehhh.. I'm not a fan of the twitter feed. Maybe what they do in FIFA would be better.

How about the ability to front-load, rear-load, etc. Contracts? I'm fairly certain every other sports game has this.

Not a big fan of this idea given EA's track record.

Yes, or how about the ability to relocate like in Madden if your team is losing money and the market is horrible.

Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. This annoys me that the teams have unlimited money if you turn off the cap.

They would need the IIHF license first, and I don't even see that happening in the near future.

Why is it that the GM mode in NHL 2004, an 8 year old game, is more in-depth than NHL 13? Inexcusable.
In summary, **** EA.
