I reached the Create a player limit today and have found out that the limit is 600 skaters. I am mostly a offline and Gm mode player so I am used to spending time tinkering with the creation zone and edit players options. I completed a year long project today that gives me very accurate nhl rosters from 05-06 to all the way back to 97-98. It is safe to say that I am keeping my copy of NHL 17. I'll get 18 as well , but I'll keep 17 as a little retro game for myself whenever I get bored of the modern rosters. Anyway, I just thought I'd post it here because I've seen others ask this question before. So if you want to create your own league of created players or create some retro versions of your favourite teams then there is more than enough room for you to do so.
