I'm ranked in the 100s monthly so far & I'm up agenst some good teams but some are just horrible and go for the hit everytime & I can just skate and get a breakaway everytime. Does the higher your rank is mean you will be playing better teams? Also I heard the salary cap affects who you play agenst, anyone know?

I wholeheartedly agree with both of you. Honestly, why is it harder to find a common non-NHL jersey in this game than it is to find a rare one?? (and then when you do, this "common" jersey costs upwards of 5-6K because its the only one on the market).

Also, there should NOT be 3-4 classifications of injury cards (arms, torso, legs, etc) there should be 1 all-purpose "Heal Injury" card. Make it a harder rare to get and heal 1-3 games duration. It would actually make the injury cards worth something (and they haven't been worth squat since they were introduced a few NHL games back)

Once you start moving up the leaderboards however and are consistently getting matched up against a team in which has a first line center who is worth more than your entire forward group then you start losing interest real quickly.
It depends, I don't have a stacked team and I knew I couldn't afford it so I built my team with the focus that each line would have two fast players that would gain entry into the zone and then pass it to the trailer who would have an 87+ shot to try to bury it or to the defense and start setting it up waiting for a chance to move into the slot. This strategy won me the amateur playoffs an has me sittin pretty at 600 in the leader boards

Im with you, if someone is very serious about the game and just wants the best stats, then it doesnt make sense to get PK over Pitkanen, but some people like good/favorite players. Like I payed upwards of 30k for a SOTW Streit, and with that I could have gotten better defenders (probably a couple) but I like Streit so it was worth it to me

The SOTWs are cool cause they make it so you can get your favorite players, even if their stats arent that good, but have them actually be good since the SOTWs have boosted stats. Peverley is my favorite player in the NHL, and I have the SOTW Pev on my team, but there is no way I would have a normal Peverley on my team

I know you weren't quoting me but I still feel as if I should clarify, my response was about the casual players getting blown out by stacked teams and all I was saying that you can ice a very good team while still being a casual player and that you just need to be smart with your pucks and put personal preference aside.

You can re-sell it or hold on to it. EA says they may still be worth something in the future.

Apparently it's Nabokov, Ovi, Semin, Parros and Clutterbuck.

I might have to spend some pucks on that Clutterbuck for my 4th line.

Edit: Haha, apparently Parros and Clutterbuck are SOTW because of Movember and their awesome ability to grow facial hair. Bravo EA!

I've been trying to swap Benn for Ryan but haven't had any luck. I may have to build up the pucks for an offer since trades haven't done it.

Pm me what you can offer. If I feel I can turn some mix of assets into enough pucks then we may be able to deal.

As it stands now the ONLY way to build a competitive team is to work the market non stop (which the majority of people have no time for...) or by getting extremely lucky.
Actually playing the game to earn pucks is completely useless under this current system.
Players I pulled out of jumbo packs in the last 2 weeks :

SOTW Nicklas Backstrom
Mike Richards
Patrick Marleau
M-A Fleury
Marian Hossa
Jaroslav Halak
Joffrey Lupul
Mark Giordano
Jay Bouwmeester
Michael Del Zotto
Erik Cole
Jason Pominville

Bought on the market :
Miikka Kiprusoff - 12k bid war
Mike Cammalleri - 6k
Jeff Carter - 11.5k
SOTW Peverley - 7.5k bin
Joe Pavelski - 4.8k
John Tavares - 13k

My team is a good mix of luck and deals on the market.
