Use real players in different setup?

Is it just me or is it impossible to use real players in custom sandbox unless using the 2016 NHL setup? Will it be possible to do in the future? The main interest of the custom sandbox mode to me would precisely be this, doing a fantasy draft with real players with anything between 6 and 28 teams instead of 30.

It is impossible now.

I can't speak to the future, only Sebastian, Malte or Jeff can do that.

Still, here are my thoughts on this for whatever they're worth:

1. It's likely that you can't do this because using real NHL players in a custom league would unbalance things too badly given that most all of the custom options feature leagues with less teams than the real NHL. You'd have too many good players, not enough money to go around etc. This would just introduce a ton of problems without any easy solutions.

2. It's also possible this is an NHL licensing related issue as well.
