I'm in the process of making an executive decision. I'm going to make my first line fast and threatening, second line full of bruisers, and solid two way guys in my bottom six.
HL Backstrom HL 89 Henrique- HL Voracek
??- Jumbo Joe- HL Burns
Base voracek and base backstrom worked wonders together for me before, but this time I'm setting backstrom on the wing to make up for face offs.
I'm thinking of running HL Paco or Lucic. I think Paco would have a better finishing ability but I haven't used either so.. We'll see how this goes.
Looks solid! Tough 4th line to play against lol.
I've always loved using Gaborik, but I felt I needed a change of pace as he hadn't scored much for me past the first 5-6 games, and the few games I used Kane he was fantastic but I didn't have enough pucks to keep him. One day though. I've been thinking about getting a Toews. or a Stamkos for my wing
Gaborik is the first move I'm making when I get some pucks. May move 1st line wingers to second line and grab a stammer or ovechkin for a first line wing
And although my fourth line is a big bodied line you'd be amazed how many goals they rack up. Can strip the pucks from any of them with hits. Get the puck low and look for the quick pass out front. Works every time
I've always had more success with Stamkos in versus play, dating back to Nhl 12. Maybe even 11. So that's going to be my first addition. I'm hoping to do some farming this weekend.
I've always had success with big bodies, I'm not always the greatest at avoiding hits so being strong on the puck is pretty essential to my game. I'm going to try Hfc Parise out right after my HL Backstrom experiment.
It really is, I've gotten a bit of a method down to the point where I can usually complete one in ten to fifteen minutes provided all the players are on the market. I've found farming between two accounts to be the most annoying as you have to constantly activate the other as a lead profile but what can ya do
I just played the craziest game. I had 1 game left and I needed 2 points to not be relegated to D2, which I'll take for my first season in D1.
Down 2-0 going into the third despite out time on attacking, out shooting and out passing severely I was feeling the pressure. Started off with my third line and his D backed off and let me walk into the hash marks and callahan buried it. Then Chimera scored right off a PK by out muscling the guy and cutting inside. OT starts and my new HL Backstrom and Voracek get the puck toward the net. On the goal line backstrom does a little spinorama and the puck bounces of Price's skate and in.
Wow. I'll take it. My HL gustavvson came up huge for me a few times too
So I did some buying and selling and added a few pieces - with devastating results. I got swamped in D3 where previously I'd been solid, usually staying up if not always comfortably.
I really wanted Getzlaf and managed to pick him up for a cheeky 40k so I was planning to move Couture out to the wing - I also picked up HL/Sochi versions of Simmonds and Ryan thinking they would be an upgrade on Marchand and Voracek but yeah, i got utterly destroyed.
Anybody want to suggest where on HUT I should look to next and suggest a reorganisation of these lines? Selling off the extras should make about 60k and I have about 45k and a load of teams to sell off so a player/players up to 100-150k are within my reach - Thornton, HL Lucic and Weber would've probably be my next unwise buys if I'd had the puck$.
C - HL Krejci (a), HFC Bergeron (a), Kesler, Getzlaf, Couture
LW - HL Marchand, HL Simmonds, Pacioretty, Duchene, Lucic, J Staal, HL Chimera, E Kane
RW - Burns, RTS Berglund, HL Callahan, RTS Ryan, Voracek, St Louis, RTS Ruutu
