Which team for Challenge 37?

Post by bruins72 » Wed May 13, 2015 9:19 pm

For those of you who haven't been following the discussion in the Challenge Questions and Feedback thread, we're looking at doing things a bit differently for Challenge 37. Everyone will download a saved game that's been simmed through the first season and you'll take over on April 15th (just enough time to scout the draft). The basic idea for the challenge will be to force you to trade away your older veteran players and rebuild your team with what you have left and what you get in return for your older vets.

We've narrowed it down to 3 potential teams for Challenge 37.

Florida would be too easy, Wild have too many high value trade assets.

Vancouver!

Assets Vancouver: Hamhuis, Miller, Sedin, Sedin, Edler, Higgins, Hansen, Burrows, Bieksa. The twins, Hammer, Edler and Miller will all bring back pretty darn good prospects.

Minnesota: Suter and Parise...plus Koivu and a couple of plugs.

Florida...Luongo, Campbell, couple others....but they are too easy as already loaded with prospect studs who are playing in Barkov, Bjugstad, Huberdeau, Ekblad. BUT NO GOALTENDING WHATSOEVER,.... once all are traded off.

At least in Vancouver 3 guys can play a bit. In Minny Kuemper becomes a stud quickly.

All that being said, I am all for Vancouver and voted that way. But would not be unhappy with the Wild. At least they would not waive that kid...what is his name again?

It's looking like we'll be going with the Canucks, barring a surge in voting over the next couple days.

Now I've just got to get to work on typing up the rules for this challenge in a simple and concise way. That's always a challenge for me! :doh:

Of those three I'd suggest Nucks.

Has Winnipeg been a challenge lately? (I don't play challenges, so I don't know)

Yeah and the Jets have one of the best prospect pools in the NHL. In no time in EHM they should be (they have terrible AI from what I have witnessed) flying.
