    NHL 16's Be a GM mode will feature player morale, requiring the user to manage player personalities as they build a franchise and compete for the Stanley Cup. Every AHL and NHL player has a unique personality that the user must placate and nurture to keep them and the locker room happy. The four key components of player morale are locker room chemistry, player personality, team meetings, and player meetings.

    Locker Room Chemistry - Each player will have fellow teammates and players list as having Best, High, and Low Locker Room Chemistry with them. 'Best' Chemistry could list a player on another team. Should you trade or demote a player that someone has high chemistry with, it could make them unhappy, lowering their morale and overall rating.

    Player Personality - Some personalities will be happier with on-ice victories versus the status of the locker room. Others may care more about locker room harmony and less about other decisions made by the team.

    Team Meetings - 30 different key events will allow the user to address the team. Depending on their current status and how you address them, their morale and overall rating will change.

    Player Meetings - 20+ specific conversations with individual players can impact the individual player morale.
