I'm not really sure that the nickname is any worse than some of the other names or nicknames on the site but the general consensus here seems to be different.

At least with the ME in TH nik admits things are bugs. I remember seeing that at least one other person plays Trophy Manager and their ME seems like it has a pretty nasty bug that the developers refuse to acknowledge exists and they're in season 20.

tons cheaper, still crazy young and only a tiny difference in EPA and I know i can afford to keep him long term
I'm not too worried about the price really. I don't need to add any more pieces to my team so I wouldn't be using any extra cash anyway. The price also won't matter next year since it will be updated. My guy will likely cost 6 million next year and yours will be around 5. I like my guy a little more and for an 88 EPA player 6 million isn't bad.

I have 2 forward Lines that are better than most teams 1st lines with avg epa's of 78 for each line. I have a shutdown 3rd line as well as d pairing and a 4th line of scoring veterans that h e been torching teams so far. My 4 LD are perfect and set in stone as is my 2nd and 3rd RD. I cut an under performing dman to make room for this guy. He's going to play top line, 1st PK and most likely 2nd PP. With an average of 92 in all defensive attributes, he is going to be hell to play against.

If you get a red card, it's practically a guaranteed win for your squad, lol. It's happened to me. In fact recently I was losing 1-0, lost my best player to a red card, and scored 2 quick goals to win the game.

Odin if you get that dman it will seriously be a steal and a half. If you get in a little bidding war, I would go over 5 million for him if I were you.

And Sa Cryed, that guy isn't overpaid. He's shown to be a point per game player in 1.1 and has high routine so he should help you a lot.

just on the look out for a LD or LW and then im sorted

got two players in mind. which ever goes cheaper ill go for
That goalie is pretty nice, but don't be depressed if he doesn't grow much from this point forward. Goalies don't work like skaters in the sense that their TRV represents their potential AVG, he may very well be done blooming, especially since he may have been bugged.

Honestly, though, his AVG vs. EPA is a bit high and will make him slightly overpaid, not to mention his aim skills are a bit rough.

Your dman has terrible strength and mediocre positioning, but he is VERY nice offensively. Still, I would take CGB's dman every day of the week, even for that price.

He isn't that overpaid, but I don't see how that guy is going to be a gamebreaker in 2.x. He makes a real good defensive center, but I can't see him piling up points. Also, just my opinion, but there is no way in hell he should play wing.



Btw, Shadowguy, what Val was referencing is the fact that you let people like J.C. Murray run rampant on the forums, insulting everyone he passes and arguing ideas with little facts and less experience and, yet, teamsters choose to censor us when we have plausible, well thought out ideas.

Villedelphia, if it makes you feel any better, I've been doing my best to drive up the price on all the FA goalies out there!

Hey i have a tough decision to make.
http://trophyhockey.org/player.php?id=652035

for my star

http://trophyhockey.org/player.php?id=321416

I would save about 5 mil that I could get a less expensive and younger center. essentially getting like 2 guys at 80 EPA for Thomas who is 84 EPA but starting to get - development. Thoughts?

So I managed to win OPV for my max bid amount, 1.9m and change.

http://trophyhockey.org/player.php?id=119147

I'm projecting him out to be an 82-83 EPA player at 99/99.

The question is, where should I use him? Due to his lackluster stamina, he's not ideal for top-line duty. I could toss him on the lower lines and double shift him on the PP (Eh...) or put him on the third line and turn that into a really solid defensive line.

It really depends what types of goals you have for your team for the near future. Can you win something this season or are you rebuilding?

Either way, if you trade Thomas I am sure you could get ALOT more for him than that guy. I have about 5 players I would offer for him (all better than the mediocre winger that guy offered you), but their TRVs aren't high enough.

That guy was a steal man, grats.

If I may suggest playing him 3rd line minutes, 2nd pairing PP and 2nd pairing PK? I am assuming his defensive stats will increase with fitness more than his offensive due to his trait.

If he ends up with 85 wrist and 90 puck control then double shift him on the PP and 4th line.

Past few seasons I win round 1 and then lose in 5. I am generally top 5 in shots and top 5 in shots against. Maybe I need a goalie, I am not sure, or I need more balance in getting a FA Center of like 80 EPA and then add a Winger at 80 which would help I think. I am kinda trying to figure it out.

I'm done bidding. I'm against the cap and I just KNOW I am going to see wage increases next season. I have a few draftees I kept intentionally so I have more roster flexibility next season since they make little money compared to my starters.

From looking at your team I think you need a goalie. Your defense is pretty ridiculous, but the combination of mediocre aim skills and horrid routine make Tiller a liability in 2.x.

I would try to trade Thomas for a goalie, or cut some wages elsewhere and snipe one of the current FAs. If you want to continue riding Tiller then I would consider every season a rebuilding year until his routine is 25+.

Either way, as I said, you can get much better assets for Thomas than that proposed trade.

He reminds me a lot of this guy that I picked up when FA opened up. My guy is a little better defensively and yours is a little better offensively. Very comparable players.

Ok, I know I just said I'm done bidding, but I just bid on a defender who costs only a bit more then an old guy I have. I hope I get this guy. He would allow me to cut a 32 year old starter for a 28 year old with only 10 less routine and 6 higher average and 5 higher EPA. What an upgrade!

Hey guys, I'm in a bit of a pickle. So, does anyone want this guy of mine?

http://trophyhockey.org/player.php?id=318012

He's about a 78-80 at 99/99 and has the PERFECT stats for a dump and chase play. I really need a left winger. I'm talking a GOOD one. Like, expensive and ****. Anyway, let me know... anyone.

Thanks.
