I think mine's something like 47-26-4. Could be a lot better if it weren't for a few fluke goals every now and then. At one point my record was 30-13-3.


What should I do with 10,000 pucks?

10K could get you a Grabner, Backes, RNH, Skinner, Neal, Roy type player if you want to spend all of your pucks on one guy.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

I just scout the market and set the search parameters to x amount of pucks. I've gotten a few steals by doing this.

Edit: Has anyone seen the Team Of The Week?

Never tried HUT before, I'm more of a Versus/GM Connected/EASHL kind of guy. That being said, is HUT hard to get into? As in, if I were to start tonight how long would it take till I get a pretty decent lineup?

well just start out with a offline tournament or online tournament and try to win then buy some decent packs and players and it slowly builds up. It all depends on your commitment to it

Yea. Even though its not exactly the best TOTW, I checked it out and I think these were his lines
from what I remember

Ovechkin - Couture - Semin
Mueller - Anisimov - ????
Parros - ???? - Clutterbuck
Zetterberg - Giroux - ????

Campbell - Karlsson
Streit - ????
???? - ????

Nabokov

Not exactly TOTW calibre IMO. I think mine could challenge his

Neal - Crosby - Horton
Carter - Richards - Gretzky
Hartnell - Anisimov - Simmonds
Landeskog - Dubinsky - Williams

Hamhuis - Doughty
J. Johnson - Letang
Gardiner - Larsson

HUT is actually pretty fun. I used to be only an EASHL guy but I've played my fair share of computers. It's kind of complicated at first but it gets easier and easier. I found a great way to earn pucks, I get about 1,000 pucks a game this way. All you gotta do is play the All Star teams/Team of the Week on superstar and you'll get a ton of pucks. Just win all the faceoffs and get the puck on net as much as you can while playing disciplined. It helps you earn more pucks. Knowing you Blom and how you play I'm sure you can get a ton of pucks this way

This is legit the first time I've seen you use proper grammar

And this is the first time I kind of like you

Keep using proper grammar and maybe people won't hate you so much !

All joking aside I really like my team too. I believe that we have good depth and all lines are equally good. I'm just trying to get that superstar like you said. Not sure which one to get though.

well I'm working on it ;). Anyways I'm also looking for a superstar for cheap and I did my research on the market and some guys I found were:
Nathan Horton-87. If you look carefully he can be as low as 17000 pucks( based on my research)
Jamie Benn-86. Found him at 16000 but don't have that many pucks but you can save up and nab him. He has 85 or higher in every category
Mike Richards-87. Like Benn, he has good everything in his categories and can find him for around 20000 more or less
Jeff Carter-86. Good offence but that's it. Still would want on your team if paired with defensive forward and playmaker. 18000 is his value

That is off the top of my head for forwards

I found Jeff Carter for less than 10,000 lol

See you did it again! Nice grammar.

Oh wait let me guess you're not on your iPod so this is why you're posting like this

I think I'll save up for maybe a Mike Richards

You have the stars, but I think you could improve the depth a bit. Also having a great goaltender can mean a huge difference

True maybe do you think I could get a 85-90 goalie with 11000 pucks?
Also for depth I can buy a premium gold jumbo with my PSN money

I see Fleury 88 overall going for 15k all the time

And don't blow your money on packs. They only give you 80 overall players. When i said depth I meant like my team 83s on the 4th line

I only spent 4 PSN cards and again got ridiculous luck with packs.

Your's is pretty solid. If you were able to sell Fleury, (I usually see him go for 50K) you could have a very good team. That's like me with Gretzky, Horton and Letang, I could sell them for a combined 200K+ :(

That was fast. 50k :o, i only see him going for 15-25k on the XBOX o.O. Still lots.

Wait WTF how did you pull Horton and Letang out of a FREE pack????

I think price ranges are different on both systems.

And idk hahah, luck I guess :P

Did anyone else on the ps3 just see a Sidney Crosby bid now for 5,000, Pavel Datsyuk for 1,000 and Duncan Keith for 150???

Well I have depth but I noticed in packs I get depth players which help. Not that I get superstars but I get depth. I think I'll save up for either a defenseman or a goalie. Karlsson has been good for me so far.

So I just completed my first online game. My team has a bunch of 4th line scrubs, AHLers, and prospects with the exception of Sami Salo and goaltender Henrik Karlsson. I was matched with a team that had Seguin, Nugent-Hopkins, Bobby Ryan, Michael Ryder, Oshie, Elias, Paajarvi, Pronger, Seabrook, Whitney, Mcdonaugh, Gunnarsson and Khabibulin. Essentially a really good team that on paper would completely destroy my 1st line of Volpatti ~ Ebbet ~ Ashton.

I ended up losing 1-0 in the dying seconds of overtime on a breakaway goal. I was dominating the play the whole entire game too!

So, from a noob HUT player, should I save up for a good NHLer or should I buy packs?

Never ever ever buy packs.

In the beginning of your HUT career I would just play the computer on superstar and rack up as many pucks as you can. Then go into the auction and get a better team.

Packs are pretty rigged but you can get the good ones for 80+ overallers or just buy cheap but good players by searching. It's essentially your choice

i agree with this too because I have bad experience with packs but some people don't
