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).
Hmmm, is that Gagne or Gagner?

Gagne straight up might get you Keith or Sharp+.
The Rest might get you Toews. If I remember correct Parise is in the 70s while Toews sits at 100k. Abandon Toews and you could get the rest.

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.
Well for now I would try out:
Vanek-Staal-Pominville
Burrows-RNH-Ryan
Williams-Krejci-SOTW Clutterbuck
JVR-Bolland-Voracek

You don't pay anything and it gives you 3 lines with perfect chemistry. It's a more balanced 4 line look that could open up more options for you to add as well.

I bought Lee Stempniak for 250 pucks because I needed a RW. I threw him on my second line with Semin and Staal and he has 2 goals in 3 games.

What are some 86+ players that are relatively cheap, like inside the $8K down range.

I know David Booth is one.

I haven't used them but Brandon Dubinsky and SOTW Clutterbuck look pretty good. I think you can get Jay-Bo for under 8K as well, but I'm not sure about his price right now.

Gagner, my bad. Also, bought a gold pack today and picked up Phil Kessel. SCORE!

Derk Roy, Tukka Rask, Jimmy Howard, Bouwmeester, Schneider, Backes, Smith, SOTW Clutterbuck, Koivu Callahan or Cole on occasion....

I don't think you'll find anyone willing to move one of those guys (maybe Backes) for what you're offering though.

Justin Williams, Blake Wheeler, Vrbata, Radulov, Doan, Jagr, Okposo, or Grabner could all play on your 3rd line RW with chemistry, but they aren't 86s. Grabner and Williams seem like natural fits.

Oshie, Pavelski, Bourque or Simmonds TWFs that could bump Eberle down to the 3rd, but again I think they're out of your current price range.

I picked up Bergeron and Bouwmeester. I have E. Staal, Lombardi and Wisneiwski available atm. Looking for Semin and pucks.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

New look team:

Hall - Gretzky(C) - Spezza
Eberle - Bergeron - Horton
RNH - Staal - Semin
Parros SOTW - Clutterbuck SOTW - M. Brown SOTW

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

Lehtonen - Bernier

I'm really liking it! Only thing I'm not to keen on is Eberle on the 2nd line LW. I want Ebs on my team but most likely need him on the Right Side.

Also ****IMPORTANT****

If you ever see vi-ki-ng88 DO NOT play him(On PS3). He is a waste of your time. He doesn't pass(probably doesn't know how) every time he uses the technique you use to dump the puck on a penalty kill and he usually lands it and gets a breakway and he dives alot. He has all the star players but that means nothing as I just beat him 6-2, lol. If you do play him just beware, and make sure to try and have your defence back.

^Good choice on Bergeron. He's been a stalwart as my 2nd PK C and 3rd line center on a 3 TWF line. He's great defensively and has a noticeably larger reach than any other forward I've played with.

Gretzky EDMONTON legend (93 rating) FS/FT

Looking for pucks or trade. I reckon he's worth 225-240K but I'm willing to sell him for 200K.

Or trade me something. ^__^

I agree on Bergeron. He's my team captain and is an absolute beast. He has a good shot, he's fast, strong defensively, and he controls nicely. Great pickup for anyone who needs a centerman.

Was looking at some players to fill my 1st line LW positions last night. Spotted a Semin with a starting price 50P bid with 9 hours and 12 minutes on it (leading it to expire just after 5:00 AM).

I set my alarm for 4:45AM to give me enough time to get into hut and hopefully get a steal on Semin.

My alarm goes off at 4:45AM and I can't remember why I set it for that early so I turn it off and try to get back to sleep. at about 5:00 I remember why I set it that early and run into my basement as fast as possible. I get everything set up and go into my watch list to discover that I was too late and the Semin went for 1150P

Why is Shea Weber so much more cheaper than Chara?

Is anyone trading their Hossa on xbox? If you do, my offer would be 2 Golden tickets, RNH and either Lombardi or Gardiner(trained to 88 ov. with a 10 duration and he is changed to Phoenix), and like 2-5k in pucks

Chara is massive. His poke check reach combined with the best checking stats in the game make him the premier defensive zone player (Myers is second for the same reasons IMO). Weber on the other hand is on the slow side, and doesn't have the stick reach of Chara, Myers or other guys like Burns or Edler. He also didn't get the shot rating he deserved though I'm unsure how hut shot ratings are derived from their components.

The plus side to Weber is that he plays RD and has great defensive ratings, but it just doesn't compare to Chara.

Yeah I can't understand how Chara can have 84 in shot rating. Maybe they combine slap shot and snap shot ratings and that's why he hasn't got like 97 in shot cuz that's what it feels like when you fire.
