Now the question is, how much of a bonus for NHL '14 do you get for the FLA collection?

Picked up a SC Richards yesterday, man is he a little ball of awesome.

He can do everything, hes got a nice shot, hes fast, and can deliver a hit.

I loved regular Mike Richards a lot. If I ever decide to put my SOTW Jets on the bench I'm building a line of SC Hossa - SC Richards - SC Carter.

I had a SC Carter too, he was good but not as good as SC Richards. My Kovalchuk and SC Richards are clicking so well on my 3rd line. They've scored over half my goals in my last 10 I bet lol.

My top line of Zetterberg (A) - Toews (C) - SOTW Semin scores at least twice a game. SOTW Semin was a massive improvement over regular Kessel.

I used to like Kessel, but I realized it was time to let him go when the rest of my team was 88+ overall. So I got SOTW Pominville, who is a lot better than I expected. He is fragile as ****, but he gets it done offensively. I also really loved Reg. Semin, I'm considering saving for SOTW or TOTY Semin.

He's worth it honestly. Can't hit worth **** but is decently strong on the puck himself. He can literally pick corners at will.

It basically depends on the rest of your lineup and your budget.

Just off the top of my head, try Sharp or Nash on the LW. Grab the SC/SOTW versions if you can too.

Ryan McDonagh has been a fixture in my lineup since Day 1. The only reason I replaced him was that I bought his SOTW card which actually wasn't that much better, at least maybe not worth the amount of pucks it cost just for the upgrade.

Another one that I found to be a bargain was Ron Hainsey. You can easily find him for under 1K pucks and I've found him to be a very capable TWD. A lot of bang for your pucks (rimshot).

So after reading through some of these threads I decided to pick up HUT, a little late the game though lol. Currently 40-13-5 (so it says). I am looking for some "Bang for the Buck" type of players.


Marleau TOTY - Marchand SC - Pominville
Gagne - Richards - Carter
Ladd - Antropov - Wheeler
Prust - Stoll - Callahan

Markov - Subban
Alzner - Greene
Timonen - Coburn

Nabokov - Bobrovsky

After my first line, no really special players. I'd really like to get some scoring depth and a strong defender. After my first and second line I get very little production

Jack Johnson is a monster of a defenceman at 9k(ish).

For your 4th line and bottom pairing D there are always some decent players available for under 1k, especially on weekends. Just look for NHL and bin max 1000.

Drop Antropov (too slow for a PLY C) and Prust out completely and move Ladd to the 4th line. Prust is a TGH, which doesn't have good chemistry with any lineup. With a PWF/GRN on the LW you'll get the maximum chemistry for your current 4th line setup. I'd suggest M. Koivu for an effective 3rd line C and Benn for a LW (they work great for my current 3rd line). I'd probably even suggest dropping Wheeler and adding Pavelski as your TWF RW.

For cheap, effective defenders, I'd suggest: Kulikov, Niskanen, Hainsey, Girardi, or for a little bit more, McDonagh.

Viktor Stalberg is a excellent low price 4th liner, Speedy and can give good hit for a 84 OVRL. Grabner, Raymond and Lombardi are excellent too if you like speedy play.

If you want pay a little more (20K), Kesler is a pretty good balanced center and Nash is really a must to have.

I just nabbed Hall from a Jumbo, decent 3rd line winger? I'm working on shifting my lines now. The problem I seem to have is most of the people just try to blow by the D men so I'm considering using some guys like JBo cause of his 90 skt, any thoughts.

I don't really like Hall. I suggest to sell it and grab Nash for your 1th line and put pominville on th third. Replace Antropov by a good TWF.

My mistake, you are correct. You'd need a PLY to get 99 chemistry with a PWF.
