Doesn't matter how the team does at a whole to get a SOTW, lol. EA is like that. As long as they put up good points they will get one. For example St. Louis or Stamkos. Bad record this year but could get another SOTW. It's to late now though, season's almost over. Maybe Karlsson will come back and get 20 points in 3 games.

Doughty - Nash

with umbrella I like to make sure I have good one-timers set up with the stick to the middle. This way when Doughty is at the top, you'd have all your one timers perfect.

Also, if you happen to have a spare 70k or so lying around, I think the upgrade to SOTW Doughty was huge in regards to his shot, skating and checking.

And yeah, it'd be nice to get a SOTW Yak, but we'll only get it if he ends up going to the worlds and lighting it up and ea decides they care lol.

Yeah I know that (btw, St. Louis is leading the league in points at 37, oldest player in history to do that)

Isn't part of why Edmonton slumping because of inconsistant scoring from their stars?

It's more than just that, and at any given time an Oiler could easily break out and go on a great streak to get a SOTW so It's not hard. It's what "Skill" Means.

This is true, sort of, but they only have one game left.

They should do an all rookie team sotw set after the season, how do we pressure each into it?

Is there any way to clear your "sold items" in your Trade pile?

I've been trying to work the market lately so I've got a solid ~30 guys sold and its annoying having to flip through all those pages to get to my available items.

Also current auctions shows up as blank for some reason :s


EDIT: And now my trade pile is full, even though it really isn't...

Thanks for the advice, I'll try that out. Sucks that I can't upgrade Doughty to SOTW, even his regular is amazing

Well, my 89 SOTW BOB got 4 +7 training cards and 1 +5 to get to 95. I put a 15 game duration on him and then swapped out my coach for the goalie goalie coach just to try it.

Two things

1. 2 goals given up by BOB, one was some crazy fluke goal where the puck got tipped in the corner, slowly slipped over to my goalie and then he just let it go in. Seriously it was the worst to watch a 95 rated goalie let in. Sigh.

2. Wow, I think my regular coach is +2 SKT but man does it make a difference. Without a coach in I felt like my guys were going super slow.

Still won 3-2

Seriously though guys, Samuels for 50000 is not worth it when you can get Fiddlers for under 750

That's likely to make some people who stocked up on consumables very happy. and holy **** that's an expensive pack

Just read EA's description, lol.... "30 items, up to 20 rares, 8-9 high end items"

They REALLY need to just state "80+" instead of "high-end" or are they just THAT big into constantly lying that it's basically compulsive at this point?

Did a little flipping of lines and players. Saw a M. Richards at LW for 11000 and got a Bouwmeester for 1200, decided he was worth it despite the damn #19.

Zetterberg - Toews(A) - SOTW Pavelski
SOTW Ladd(A) - SOTW Little(C) - SOTW Wheeler
M. Richards - Spezza - Kessel
SOTW Kunitz - Kesler - Nash

Phaneuf - Doughty
Bouwmeester - Burns
J. Johnson - Myers

Lehtonen
SOTW Bishop
