Damn, if only my good pull had more than 60 POT (he's 17 YO, he could have done something...)

That's what I was thinking, but it's really just a guess. Maybe Ranger or Leafer or one of those top league guys can offer you some advice on this. I've never sold anyone for more than 9M or bought anyone for more than 5M. So I don't know much more than what I've read.

Big 5-0 win today over a team that promoted from V.2

I think I am officially the class of the V promoters, however it is yet to be seen if I can surpass one of the bottom tier IV tiers and avoid relegation.

won 2-1 without my top two wingers due to injuries. My 1 million dollar investment on a 19yo seems to have paid off because he got the game winner! woot!

Won my game 6-5. Almost blew a 5-1 lead in the 3rd, but squeaked out yet another win. 5-0 baby!! Woo!

Seems like the HA guys in IV.4 are all doing well lately.

Lost 3-0, but it was expected. Dropped into a 3-way tie for 5th. Whatever.

Won 3-2 in OT. Little bit disappointed that it went to OT, but I'll take the W. Somehow I'm leading my new league with 12 points. I'm tied with 3 other teams but I have the best goal differential so I'm in first.

My 20 year old sub on the first line got the 2 goals in regulation so I'm happy about that. He's only got 61 AI so it was a nice surprise to see 2 goals from him.

Hummm... I lost 6-2. That could be a good thing. My opponent aimed my goalie, and guessed wrong. But I forgot to tweak my tactics, so my guy could be pulled anytime if he gave 2 goals in 40 minutes. The backup came in.... and well, he guessed well for the backup.

That doesn't change that my starter doesn't stop anything this season though.

Other good thing... or not so good. Completely dominated him on faceoffs.

YES! beat the team that won my leagues championship today in league. 3-2. thats some great retribution. kinda picks my day up. they day after the sharks get eliminated is always the most difficult of the year for me. It was nice to have this kind of pick-me-up.

speaking of pick-me-ups, two of my goals were scored by new newest addition. a 110AI winger who just also happened to get injured for 2 days in the game today.

So I'm debating playing on low tomorrow against blakk sabbath. They have about 20ish AI lower than my team, and I think I can win on low, but I'm still nervous about the upset. Aye, my TS could really use a boost though. It'll be a game time decision.

im think im goin low my next few games, gopher, sabbath and cottingfield or whatnot then of course the pens. plus i got a low NC game.
to get to my goal of 27 points i need 6 wins and 2 draws in 25 games so i can get some good TS and then reel off some second half high games.

i played sabbath on normal and won 6-2. im pretty sure you could play on low and win with no problems.

i offered friendly notifications to gophers and sabbath at the end of the season and messaged them to send their A team against me as i did and i beat sabbath, while losing to gophers. I feel confident about sabbath on low, we will see how i do tomorrow against gophers. i have improved my team since those friendlies tho with the addition of 3 100 AI players in the last 3 weeks. we will see how weve improved over the last few weeks.

aslong as he is up during peaks times he should sell for around 100 mil (hopefully for you, more than that ) but having him up on the Thursday/Friday couldn't hurt.

0 goaltending, 3 defense, 14 attack, 10 shooting, 8 passing, 5 skating, 3 strength and 5 self-control.
I probably would train attack and shot until it was 30/40. Then think about working on the secondaries, but ignore them and continue building shot until 50. Then ***** because I have no offense.

He gets up to 50 for some league games, but that's rare. Sometimes he hits 50, sometimes he goes as low as 40. It's usually 43-48%. His max was 55% during the playoffs in V.6 when he was lucky to get 40% for a league game. I think he'll hit 65 if I ever make the playoffs again. He plays 2nd line, PP and PK every game. 96Q/65P.

T/R is going to be 80/80 in 6 days.

just realized I need to get myself a goalie prospect! My main goalie is running out of Potential and I got no viable player to step in when he is done

Blah, 1-0 OT win and I'm 3rd now. Tonight I'm gonna play the punching bag of the league (0-5 right now with 2-35 score) on low.

I faced the number 1 in my league The Hulk Hogans, was playing on High, but still lost 3-1... This team is just really strong. Nice detail: it doesn't have a manager Btw strangely enough I get this match 3 penalties against: last Friday when I was playing on Low I got 7 penalties. Riiight

My league is pretty boring Me, the Hulk Hogans, and the De IJssel are fighting for the first place + promotions. Maybe the 2 teams that relegated last season will also come into the mix but for now they are a little bit behind.

If only my team could score more goals. Good news is that tonight I play versus the last place. So fingers crossed
