It's official that the Gold Pack and Premium Gold pack is better than the Premium Gold Jumbo Pack(For me anyways). I was cleaning today and found $10 in a old jean pocket(best thing ever to discover) and decided to "trade" that in for $10 off my credit card for HUT(was feeling wild and needed some contracts, lol). I opended up 2 Premium Gold Jumbo's and got squat. All the 80 overall players were the bad looking kind(if you know what I mean). And then I opended up 1 Premium Gold and one regular Gold and pulled Erik Johnson, not to shabby. Also pulled Scheifele and Gudbranson out of those packs. I know they aren't the greatest overall but they have a nice name to them. I have honestly never gotten anything good out of the Premium Gold Jumbo's. On the other hand from the Premium Gold and Regular Gold I have pulled players like: Tim Thomas, Erik Cole, Andrei Markov, and now Erik Johnson.

If anyone is interested in Johnson he's available as I have one on my team. I also got a bunch of bum 80's and Jersey's. I'd be looking for something comparable for Johnson and Sens/Oilers change team cards for the others. Thanks!

Sweet. I offered Johnson, O' Rielly and $2K for Clutterbuck SOTW and it was accepted. Now where should I put him, hmm.

My team looks like this right now:

Hall - Gretzky(C) - Spezza(A)
E. Staal - Horton - Eberle
Nugent-Hopkins - J. Staal - Yakupov
Helm - Lombardi - Parros SOTW

Edler - Karlsson(A)
Campbell - E. Johnson
McDonagh - Wisniewski

Lehtonen - Bernier

Any suggestions?

I didn't really play much HUT for about two weeks, but I'm getting back into it again. I've reworked my dream team. The players in italics are the ones I still need.

Semin - E. Staal - Kessel
Hall - Spezza - Sharp
MaxPac - Bergeron - Skinner
SOTW Brown - Helm - SOTW Clutterbuck

Kronwall - Karlsson
??? - Myers
??? - Green

???
Mason/Lindback

I'm going to sell Havlat, Tavares, and Heatley to make some pucks, since they haven't done much for me. Semin is going to be the first guy I purchase.

I'm going to need some suggestions/help here though. I've got two questions:

1. Who should I use in net? I'm thinking maybe Kipper or Lehtonen, but I don't know.

2. I need two more left-handed LD. I'm using Streit and Hamhuis right now but I want some better players. Maybe Edler, if he's a LD. I'm also considering upgrading to SOTW Streit, but I don't know how much he costs. Suggestions, please!

Alex Pietrangelo-He's my favorite player IRL so I desperately wanted him. I saved up the pucks and bought the first one I saw under 20k. Complete waste. The game definitely does not do him justice. His shot is okay, and he lays some big hits every once in a while, but he's slow and seems to get knocked down very easily. As much as it pained me, I had to get rid of him. He was just awful.
.
That's kind of funny, because Mike Richards is my favorite player and I painfully let him go because he was absolute garbage for me. Couldn't win a faceoff, was invisible for 50 odd games before I gave up on him.

But Pietrangelo is probably one of my favorite players to use in the game. Absolute beast stripping the puck from people and slaps home goals like nobodies business for me.

Use Luongo, I've had him for like 10 games now and he's 9-1-0, and big part of those wins. I've never had such a consistently great goalie. I think I've had more shutouts with him in these 10 games than the 50 before him.

My team right now is:

Semin(84)-SOTW Backstrom(A90)-SOTW Jagr(C88)
Kane(84)-Koivu(A87)-SOTW Radulov(85)
Neal(85)-Getzlaf(87)-Hemsky(83)
Landeskog(85)-Filppula(84)-SOTW Clutterbuck(86)

SOTW Goligoski(86)-Myers(86)
McDonagh(85)-Burns(86)
Del Zotto(85)-Shattenkirk(85)

Luongo(89)
Harding(84)

I'm really satisified with the team right, but I'd like to upgrade to Semin to SOTW version, and Jagr to a Dallas SOTW version. And maybe SOTW Havlat for the second line.

Edler is a LD and a captain card makes him a monster. He's the best defensemen I've used - that's including Burns, Pietrangelo, Mike Green and Erik Johnson.

There's been a few steals for SOTW goalies (Niemi, Varlamov, Smith, Brodeur) so keep an eye out and since you don't really know anyway just take what the market dictates.

So every month the playoffs start fresh and nothing carries over? Last month I won the amateur playoffs and was expecting to start at the next level this month but I was denied. How is anyone supposed to win the elite playoffs with only a couple days to win 12-20 games (forfeits)?

Does anyone here have Dallas Stars center Dowell? He is 79 overall guy, i could trade you some other low overall collectible nhlers, or some pucks for him.

Hedman - Bieksa (actually what I use as my 3rd pair). You could really use a top of the line LW.
I'm using the following roster...

Justin Williams - Jordan Staal - Bobby Ryan
Thomas Vanek - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - Jason Pominville (all buffalo)
Alex Burrows - Dave Bolland - SOTW Cal Clutterbuck
James van Riemsdyk - David Krejci - Jakub Voracek

Dion Phaneuf - Dan Boyle
Brian Campbell - Brent Seabrook
Ryan McDonaugh - James Wisniewski

Semyon Varlamov
Michael Neuvirth

Really happy with my defense and my 2nd and 3rd lines. Any suggestions on who i should get as my top line LW? I dont have a lot of pucks atm but i have a lot of players to sell.

I have a few. By Ps3 pricing:

SOTW Moulson - 20k
Benn - 16k
Heatley - 13k

My suggestion is Moulson. You could really use someone with a nice shot, and he's got it.

I will certainly consider good ol' Luo. I'll have to see what his usual price is right now.

3 Stars in this week's EA Simulation:

1st Star - King Henrik
2nd Star - Taylor Hall
3rd Star - Luongo

I have to imagine that a SOTW version of every one of those is going to cost a pretty penny on the market.

He just joins EASHL drop in games and tries to personify Steve Ott by just chirping everyone in the room and making them wait the full 3 minutes for the game to start. And he actually says he is going to kill people and goes pretty overboard. Then when the game starts he just head hunts til he gets a penalty then leaves

He had an account here for a little while but got banned, no surprise. Hes just a huge tool. Ive reported him before, and Im sure a million other people have too, yet he is still around
That sounds really annoying, the way you phrased it though makes it sound hilarious.

My first ever big steal!

I was looking for a Martin Havlat for my team and was prepared to pay 15k+ or something for him. I went into the auction house for SJ and scrolled, saw a Martin Havlat on the first page put up for

50-100

I picked him up for 100 pucks. My first ever big steal. Yay!

Do my players have enough "oomph" to be able to get D keith, P sharp, J Toews, or P Kane of the blackhawks? Or do I need to trade up for better players? I appreciate any help that can be given!


I have: Simmons (RW, PHI), Bergeron (LD, TB), A Kostitsyn (LW, NSH), S Kostitsyn (LW, NSH), Parise (C, NJ), Gagne (C, EDM), Anisimov (C, NYR), Ponikarovsky (LW, NJ).

SOTW Parros has been AWESOME for me. Not to mention he goes for very cheap.

Holy crap. When I got Havlat I got him for 4K... nice steal. Just sold him for 15K though. He'll be funding my Eric Staal.

Also, I picked up Alex Semin and Kari Lehtonen today, so I can cross those guys off my list. Like I said, Staal is next. Watching one right now.
