If you ignore all of my teams losses I've won 100% of my games.

20-6-2 in the playoffs. 182-78-9 in the regular season. 20-4-2 and 129-39-8 with my current team though. Took me a while to figure out what the **** I was doing as we were all wading through in the dark for a while.

I very nearly did that back-to-back: http://trophyhockey.org/manager.php?id=9038. I have a feeling this season won't be quite so easy.

So you are scouting the SAR 5's...

And for the record, I agree wholeheartedly.

I figured I'd scout them first since they will be the only interesting players anyway. Also, there will be enough time with 8 scouts to get through all the rest.

If that guy's POT is accurate then 3.1's draft >>>>>>>> 3.2's draft

I have just about all of the SAR 5 and 4's scouted and only 1 guy has over a 61 POT. A 20 year old dman who is likely half bloomed and has 80 deking with a AVG of 56 and a POT of 64; 58 EPA at 72/95.

AKA: Completely ****ing useless.

69 is likely high but he's still in the mid 60s and the highest potential in the draft.

Still, there are like 5 players that might make my team in the entire draft and none will be around when I pick.

Same, I was just noting how much better that Bauer guy is than any player in 3.2's draft. Even if his POT is only 64 or so, he will be a decent 4th line winger in the distant future, which is much more than anyone in 3.2 can say.

I scouted him 5 times and his POT came out as 69, so I'm pretty sure that's dead on. He's just an abberation, I think.

Rest of the class goes 66, 65, 64, 64, 63, 62...

Problem is, he's a natural C, not a winger at all.

I meant center, Freudian slip, obviously, as one of his best attributes is his strength/faceoff combination.

My friend made a Freudian Slip once.

He was eating dinner with his wife and he wanted to say "Please pass the corn" but what he ended up saying was, "You ruined my life you stupid *****!"

Good to know, guess that means there's maybe 3 or 4 dudes I'd keep if I drafted.

What's Freudian about that?

But yeah, he'd make a nice, cheap 4th line C.

Idk, the term 4th line winger is more common than 4th line C, perhaps?

I actually wrote winger AGAIN in my last post when I was correcting myself and had to edit the post. It is quite bad.

Best player in my draft. I think he could actually be an okay 3rd line center.

There is about a 0.01% chance he truly has a 71 POT.

Have your scout with the highest POT scout him a few more times and see if it drops.

He already has a mediocre EPA. Seems almost can't miss even if his potential is a good deal lower.

I got my #2 C back that I wouldn't have had for the game on Sunday, so... get her done!

I really don't know WTF Nik is doing. I'm guessing the problem boils down to TH now being on the TM servers, which should have never happened given the state of TH right now.
