So I've sold my whole team and am now sitting on 300k. What should I do?

How much will transfer to 2014? I've heard a lot of talk about team bonus collections...I have three completed teams but honestly don't think I can grind through collecting any more teams. Just no fun.

Should I A. Buy 20 packs of Jumbo Golds? B. Just keep 300k C. Wait for another 25k/35k special packs and buy 10 of them?

Double pucks is good, or buying players low and selling high, but that probably doesn't work anymore, because of how flooded the market is

You're going to have to wait it out then. Most people know the market and realize if there's only one logo up they can pretty much set the price. I didn't want to spend much on the Panther's logo but after 5 days of waiting I gave in and bought it for 3.75k.

People also know FLA is one of teams that people use to get easy collections done, so the logo is really one of the "big ticket items".

I found somebody who will give it to me for 3K, I think it that will be as cheap as it gets so I am buying it when I go home

I bet I could make a small fortune buying up the jerseys/logos of teams that are the easiest to finish collections for. Half the time they sell for under 400 and demand dictates I can get 2500+ a piece.

Finally I got my 99 Crosby (PS3) And will be getting an Ovechkin to go along with him any suggestions for my lineup?

TOTY Kadri - TOTY Crosby - Ovechkin
SOTW Skinner - SOTW E Staal - Gaborik
Kovalchuk - LA Gretzky - SCE Nash
Kane - Gilmour - SOTW Nugent-Hopkins

Chara - SOTW Karlsson
TOTY Pietrangelo - Phaneuf
Burns - SOTW Seabrook

Miller
SCE Anderson

LF Price (PS3), PM me if you got a Price! And to ANYONE who has been considering picking up 99 Crosby...get him. He is very much worth it. 7 goals, 4 assists in 5 games.

Any scenario where you buy packs will give you less than 1% chance of pulling even with a 0.000001% of pulling card(s) turning you a profit.

You literally have a better shot playing Russian Roulette with a chaingun missing one round.

My advice would be to add some size to your forwards, anyone who can play half decent should be able to toss your players around like ragdolls.

Sorry about that. Nash, SOTW Ladd, SOTW Kunitz, Sharp (SC/SOTW are better) & Kesler all add size and power without sacrificing scoring ability.

Lol yeah, there's always a chance. I'm biased against packs because, (1) I never pull anything worthwhile and, (2) I am actively lobbying AGAINST EA and giving them money for doing nothing. Packs cost absolutely nothing for EA to release and they have been pumping out 3 packs a week since March.

Honestly? Viktor Stalberg. Guys got the speed to be good on the forecheck and has some decent hitting ability. Perfect 3rd liner imo

Stalberg was a stalwart on my lineup in my early days, he's a great example.

I got more than I expected out of Drew Stafford, Zach Bogosian and Jack Johnson.

A dozen factors apparently.

Your record, your current pile of pucks, how many pucks you have earned through games, collections, etc.

Nobody knows the ratio and EA refuses to divulge. My theory is EA just rewards a random amount of pucks to everyone who played the last game.
