I have come to the conclusion that this game hates me.

Any pack I buy, my rare cards end up being a chump player around 81-83 (my last ultra rare cards... Travis Moen, Larose.. Anthony Stewart).. thank you so much premium gold packs!

Also, what is with the match-up system.. I'm 29-10-5 online, my best guys are 2nd-tier NHL players, and I am getting all of these loaded teams with SOTW lineups. I lost 2-1 last night to a kid who I outplayed but had less skill.. He had everyone imaginable. Team had to be worth over 3 million pucks? Most were SOTW...Dats, Ovie, Crosby, Malkin, Koval, Sedins, Nash, Kane x's 2, Gaborik...Chara, Phaneuf, Bou, Weber, Burns, Quick?

vs... Abdelkader, Filppula, Franzen, Tlusty, Larose, Frolik... you get the picture.

why on earth am I matching up vs guys with 800 games played? my skill level is only a 9.



Also, I have about 38k in pucks, check my roster- give me some suggestions on what to do? Play a ton for awhile and save? Flip who I have? Buy some players in particular?

Grabner[LW]-Vermette-Hemsky(hate him)
Abdelkader[C]-Filppula-Franzen
Raymond-[Laich/Anisimov/Josefson]-Clarkson
Frolik-[Tulusty/Weiss]-Larose

Vlasic-Boyle
J.Bou [STL]-Shattenkirk
Pitkanen-Niskanen

benched: OEL, Gardiner

SOTW Bishop
Lindback

Next time they announce a deal pack I'm selling my team. I'll them all back and probably have 100k left when the pack comes out and the market crashes.

Hey guys, my first post here.

Have played HUT for 240 games now and my record is 161-67-12 all online games.

My team is currently looking like:

Benn "C" - SOTW Lecavalier "A" - Duchene
Semin "A" - V. Filppula - Havlat
Cammalleri - Roy - Vrbata
Raymond - Lombardi - Grabovski

Bouwmeester - Giordano
Visnovsky - Boyle
Whitney - Ehrhoff

SOTW Bishop
Mason

Any advice on how to improve my team is accepted! Considering on buying SOTW Conacher or Marleau next.

That's pretty much what I did last weekend. Sold my entire team for about 650k then used all those pucks to flip players. Between that and double pucks I made over 300k.

Double pucks is up now, so I'm guessing it's gonna last all weekend.


Also a Rare player pack for $10/800 MS points.

I am on xbox 360 and have 24k pucks atm. Don't really have anyone to trade except an UT Havlat. Would like to trade him for Burns.

Players like E. Kane, E. Staal, Pavelski, either Erik or Jack Johnson and, yes, Burns are all under 15k on PS3.

Nice man, congradulations.

I need some luck, I've spent $150-200 on packs and get nothing. One SOTW and it was a low-tier one (Timonen) that I flipped for an UT Nash. Phil Kessel, Matt Green, Mark Giordano and Mike Richards Round out my top 5 pulls.

Bouwmeester - Burns is one of the best pairings in the game.

Everyone has them, even stacked teams tuck them into the 3rd pairing.

Replacing a LW for an incoming Zetterberg.

SOTW Ladd, Semin, Sharp, E. Kane

I have 4 snipers in total so I'm heavily leaning towards Semin or Kane here. My gut says Kane because he simply doesn't produce while Kesler and Perry (his linemates) do. However, while the goal production is nice, the complete lack of a physical game from Semin is against my style.

Not everyone. I've never had Burns. I have not had Bouwmeester in a long time.

How much is Crosby worth? Seriously? I see him go at 390K and the next day another goes at 500K.
