Just a suggestion I know the sedins are pricey but would be a cool Swedish connection
I'll see what I can do, but that's going to be pretty expensive.

Yep he is. He's my ast capt. I find sotw Iginla, sotw Ryan, Nash and Parise my best players for me on most nights - all bigger guys that are hard to knock off the puck. Malkin too But I just sold mine ...

Opened a Premium Gold Pack (the 7500 puck one) and got Phaneuf. Got an offer of Spezza for him straight up but I'm looking for pucks, not players. My trade pile as of right now:

Lombardi
Z. Michalek
Williams
Hansen
Carle
2x Granlund
Wideman
Chimera
Gleason
J. Johnson
Bouchard
Phaneuf
SOTW Demers
SOTW Tanguay
SOTW Cammalleri
SOTW Pavelski
SOTW Backstrom

Well another post about a lineup, but ohhhh well!

As I climb the rankings, I feel I need a little tweaking on my team. I am not proclaiming to be a pro NHL13er, but I do feel there is a small gap in my D and possibly line 3.

Zetterberg(C)/Kesler(A)/Ryan (all SJS)
Couture/Pavelski(A)/Marleau
Neal/Vermette/Grabner (all SJS)
Clowe/Dubinsky/SOTW Clutterbuck

Suter/Burns (all SJS)
Keith/E.Johnson
Pitkanen/Larsson

Vokoun/Niemi

Overall I really do like the team, the top 2 lines get it done consistently. Ryan is a recent acquisition, and he isn't all I thougth he would be but I will keep trying (maybe on a different line) because I like his playstyle. I have 20k pucks right now, and I was thinking about saving up for a Phaneuf to stick with E.Johnson on 2nd line shutdown and have Keith/Burns and Suter/Larsson.

My personal playstyle is generally breakout with speed, give and go's, and some umbrella/forecheck with bottom 6. Any ideas or tips would be coooool!

Man did I forget how much it feels like my guys are skating through pudding when playing this game.

Played a kid with the team name "F USA" and beat him 6-3 before he quit in the 3rd. Stastny with 2 goals, Callahan with a goal, McDonald with a goal and JJ with 3 assists. Guess he picked the wrong country to hate?

Can someone suggest some guys that are good in front of the net?

I'm thinking of LW PWFs like Booth, Lucic or Paccioretty because I really need a guy who can free himself for passes in front of the net.

Still have a SOTW Moulsen if anyone is interested - need a goalie and a LW replacement. PS3

I could also use some input on 3rd liners for a defensive line with size. I think my last lineup was a little bit too small. My fourth is a speed line of Raymond, Helm and Parenteau. Right now I have Bergeron at 3C and Umberger at 3LW. I've thought about Oshie or Bourque but I've had both and neither have quite the size I want.

Well well well, just pulled my first SOTW from a pack - Vrbata (86) on PS3. 90skt 90sht 91hnd 81chk 80def. Not a bad RW. Now, to sell or fit into my roster? I just posted a couple posts up with my roster. I don't have a good idea of the market value of this card. There is one with a 45k bid with a couple days left, and some buyout of 150k. Anyone have any idea of the value of the SOTW Vrbata?

Indeed I am, and my SOTW Cammalleri is the only one I've seen on the market for at least 4 days.

Had my first epic comeback today and thought i'd share. down 3-1 with 5 min left in the third. get a good slap from the point from Stalberg for to shelf goal. Then tie it up with .6 sec left with a last chance blue line shot from Peverley. Then again about 4 min into OT Peverley smacks one past glove side

Who do you guys put your captain cards on?

I've always ran with Gretzky as my captain, but it seemed that he should be good enough already, what's an extra two points?

Put it on Nugent-Hopkins, who I love on my team but could use a boost. A 90 skating RNH is sick.

Better to make a great player elite, or a good player great?

The market says great player elite and I would agree. Getting 2 stats to the 90s seems like a sort of benchmark to me.

I used a captained Edler as my #1LD and he was really good. I now have Kesler with the C and he's noticeably better.

I feel like its best to use the C and A on players that get the full use of the stat boost in each category. Rnh seems like a bad fit for captain to me because his 72 chk and 80 def don't really make a difference. It's never a bad idea to just pick your favorite players though.

Of course I made Jarome Iginla as captain. He's been fantastic for me, great shot, great body checking.

Just great all around.

Just have to get SOTW Jarome Iginla.

Does anyone really have a good chance of getting a player without overpaying a ton?

2BC gets some seriously heavy offers for his players.

True. Sometimes I think he gets freinds/family/people to send these offers, lol.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now to my trade day. The players available will be:

Rich Peverly SOTW
M. Richards
Peitrangelo
J. Johnson
T. Hall
N. Backstrom(Wild-Goalie)
Kessel
Giroux
Edler
Havlat
Nash
Bergeron
Spezza
Wolski SOTW
Burns
Karlsson
Clutterbuck SOTW
P.K. Subban
Lehtonen

Note that all of these players are on my team so i'd need fill-ins to make it a good offer.

I've listed them all at $300K($300.00) for 3 days. I will be checking frequently so send some offers! Another way of finding them is my HUT team name is OttawaOilers and my PS3 gamertag is SenzFan2. Also, all the Forwards are changed to the Edmonton Oilers and the Defence and Goaltenders are changed to the Ottawa Senators. We can also talk via PM here. SEND SOME OFFERS!

Cheers!

I don't care how much you like his videos or how much you want to be a part of them, you don't give him SOTW Chara, Havlat, Sharp and Backstrom (C) for a card that's only worth 15k.
