Are you a 5 star team? If so, change your backup to some low overall goalie, so you don't have to face all stacked teams

First of all what system are you on?

It also depends on what you are looking for. If you want a TWD with speed, Matt Niskanen is your man (1-2K). If you want a DFD with a good shot, I would suggest Seabrook because I have enjoyed using him and you can get him for 3000P fairly easily (about 2000P if you're patient). If you want an OFD I would say James Wisniewski would be good he's affordable and a very underrated skater IMO (he's 86 but skates faster then Dan Boyle at times).

Some other options I can think of (other than the ones you have named):
Kevin Bieksa (1-2K)
Dan Girardi (1-2K)

EDIT: these are PS3 prices, so if you are on xbox they could be different

360 ... looking for DFD with decent footspeed to pair with an OFD on the left side. Right now I'm using Johnny Boychuck but he's slow. I've got Girardi on my 2nd pair with OEL and Niskanen with J-Bo on my 1st pair and they've been really good. Got a bid in now on a Burns so alternatively I might go J-Bo - Burns and move Niskanen down to 3rd pairing and I think I have a few other TWD's to pair up with him, although not sure if any LD's.

I would say if you don't get burns go with Seabrook.

Do you guys have a hard time drawing matchups with a 5 star team? I find if I don't have a scrub back up it pushes my usual line up to 5 stars and I've got to wait for ages to get a match.

Yeah, I've used Johnson with Markov and Ehrhoff and he does well. He's not the fastest or smoothest with the puck but he's big, positionally sound, and he's naturally physical. I use him on my third pair, but he gets PK time over Burns. He takes very good angles in the dzone.

He can be found at 3-5k if your patient.

I can also vouch for Bieksa as a cheap fill-in. He's tougher on the puck than his ratings would suggest.

I picked up Kulemin this weekend for 950 pucks. I'm using him in the International Stars tournament on Mikko's wing and he's doing very well. Koivu is a great forechecker and Kulemin has been a great finisher in the few games I've played. I think I've gotten 3 goals so far off Kulemin after a nice pass from Mikko or a loose puck created by Mikko.

Thinking very hard about keeping Kulemin but I already have Heatley to use on Mikko's wing. I'm sure I could make a decent profit if I sell him though.

It's official, **** Packs

ran out to get a PSN card (Mainly because Mass Effect 1 comes out today and i never had a 360 so i beat 2 and 3 without the first) and i got **** all outside of a 80 game contract card

Hopefully i can sell it and turn it into another defenseman like Jbow

Bieksa's one of my most hated ... I can't stand that smug face

Miracle Manny seems alright, and I've got nothing against Hamhuis ... I actually don't mind Edler either. But don't tell anybody! Lol

I f***ing hate how I dominate this guy the whole entire game and in shots 52-5 and he wins 2-1. Those freakin' LUCKY bounces he gets, unbelieveable. I have been loosing games becuase I havn't been able to score, uaghhhhhhhhhhhhhh.......

Steve Mason was in net for him. I can recall a few times where he's shut me out to 2 goals or less and stood on his head. Anyone tried him before? From how he's shut me down he looks good!??!

I use Bergeron because he's the man but him and Krejci are the only people I would touch on that team. I've had the opportunity to use Marchand so many times but it felt dirty enough just selling him. I wish I could put him in goal and help the other team take slapshots at him.

JCFan - let me know how Peverley is. I've been interested in him for my fourth for some time now but I keep missing out on him for 5k.

I've had the same problem lately, and Mason was the last guy I remember that stonewalled me. He seems to perform well for the other team but I imgaine he'd suck for me.

I log on to HUT the other day and I see an offline featured tourney. What kind of sorcery is this? I can finally play featured tourneys without playing other people? Awesome.
