Snagged a 84/Max/+? 17 year old Fin for 148M. The Q is a little low, but only 1 point below the minimum of 85Q to be good. The +? for loyalty might make up for it. If not, well, he'd still make a damn good 3rd line center if not a top six caliber center.

Thinking of a players potential in relation to their theoretical max tells you how many seasons of prime training they would have. Basically it helps you figure out how good and how much AI they player would top out at when hitting 0P.

I just said screw it, double boosted the 17 year old in my YS showing decent AI estimates, and pulled him: 85/max-6/?+. I already have a ton of high Q/low P train and sells. Just another to add to the heap.

That happens to me every time I double boost. Always not as good as I thought.

I had a good feeling the P would be crap, but I took the risk anyway seeing as the other choice would be to hold out hope of a surefire stud being pulled. Realized what's the point, if I waited I would be pulling him at 18 years old and he ended up with good P, then that would mean a wasted season in which he could have been gaining experience.

Jesus Christ I forgot it's Sunday, I was certain it was Saturday. So of course I lost my UFA #1 -3 C for some measly 300M. **** this game, I quit.

Sad. This game is becoming a ghost town. All it would take is to have everyone get just one person to join. Seems pretty easy to me. That would get the US back to all time high levels. I got 4 people to join in the last month. They all really like the game.

Looking like tujague is hitting the highway, hasn't logged to HA for quite a while. That's a shame, he's the team I would most like to see get a 1.I championship (next to myself of course, haha).

Log in, ya loser!!

Haven't posted here in a while but my team is doing pretty well. 1st in IV.8 with a 5 point lead on 2nd. T/R is at 100%, YS up to 70. Got a 3rd star player. Had a pull with ?93/?82 at 16 y/o but a low AI of ?23 showing.

That's not necessarily low if your Youth School isn't at 100.

Good to know. I'm unsure of how to progress with him though. I gave him a +5 boost 'cause... seemed like a good idea, I guess. Hoping he is my next best since Cody Pagan.

If anyone is interested, I have a decent winger up on the market.

84/18/+3, 295 AI, 197 EXP

I put him up for the minimum 10k. Not sure how high he'll go for. Stats:
Goalie 0 (0%) Speed 33 (72%)
Defense 7 (0%) Strength 12 (13%)
Offense 88 (9%) Self-control 29 (6%)
Shooting 101 (11%) Form 97 (+5)
Passing 25 (4%) Experience 197 (6%)

I'll be sad to see old Boris go. 104 weeks on my roster.


I also have this defenseman up: 91/29/+3, 313 AI, 200 EXP, but he'll obviously be a little more expensive. Hoping to make some cash off of him.

When I re-joined HA week ago, I saw that number of GM's are over 600.000 ? Really HA got that many new GM's ? I remember year ago it was smth like 30.000.

600,000 does seem high. I didn't notice that. There are like 10000 teams in Slovakia and the Czech Republic combined, but I don't think anyone else comes that close.

So I just bought an 89/max/?- 17-year-old goalie for less than nine million. Not a typo.

I don't even need a goalie, I was looking for a young scrub to be a long term backup. 89/max for less than 9 million what the what?

Somehow, I have a player that's making 3.5M per day. That's 10x as much as the second highest paid guy. Must be a bug... right?

Sounds like an automatic renewal of an UFA with +2 loyalty to me.

Goalies have always been cheaper than skaters. It's a different market entirely.

Sure, but not that cheap though, not for an 89/max.

Being pulled this late in the season definitely knocks down the value, but still. If I played him, he'd eventually be a I.1 caliber goalie. That's worth more than 8 mill. The only reason I'm not playing him is because I already have a young goalie a few years older who will be peaking with the rest of my roster.

Find him a wing/defense spot to play him and switch him over later so you have a good backup until he hits 26/27 then sell/let go as an UFA?
