Every creature (other than dwarves) in a 30 foot radius gets angry about the wielder and must resist the anger to not attack him ( DC15 Wisdom). Any dwarf in the radius is inspired and gets advantage in their attack role. The hammer quietly murmurs that he/it is a better choice if the character wield another weapon or tries to solve a problem diplomatic.
  44. Stabby- a small dagger that really doesn't like being covered in blood and just wants to be a whittling knife. Though kind of a doormat stabby wil try to convince it's wielder to not fight with it by giving them tips on how to use another weapon by telling them how much better it's brethern are at combat, try giving them some quality choking tips or just simply try to get them to attempt diplomacy and peace. Despite that it's actually a really strong magical weapon capable of ignoring the bonus in AC that comes from wearing armor.
  45. The quabbling quivebarnaby/shotty/hawkeye/etc.: A ancient quiver that can't talk by itself, instead it can only talk by putting arrows inside it. The catch is that the quiver is a extremely eager to share it's many stories along with a hatred of being interrupted. Not only that but every arrow that get's put inside it has a seperate copy of the quiver's personality. One or two of them are actually quite nice grandpa like companions with a near infinite amount of tales to tell and the knowledge that comes with it. But any more of them and they will constantly get into fights, interrupt each other and talk their wielders ears of (though they know to stay quiet during stealth and keep the talking to a minimum during fights).
  46. Beatrix - a katana of exceedingly high craftsmanship that holds the soul of a bride betrayed on her wedding night. She seeks revenge on a gentleman named Bill and all those who work for him.
  47. Keeedo, the sling- Makes elaborate innuendos about how he would like to 'sling' the nearest new female. Not a good companion in the presence of bar wenches and queens. Will ignore females he has known for at least a day.

Edgar’s glass has a special pouch that will repair Edgar after being broken and replenish the acid inside. This feature can be done once a day. The victim also hears Edgar yelling very loudly in their own head. Edgar does 1d10 acid and 1d10psychic damage.
  50. Ilthindr- a hammer with an eye. Iithindr was once a lawful evil monk who now resides in a weapon after a warlock betrayed him. He is forced to help the wielder despite hating them unless they are also lawful evil. Wielder gains +2 perception.
  51. D’lthmirsflayt- a jumbled mass of tentacles. D’lthmirsflayt only speaks in deep speech and explains all the instructions to use it. The wielder must first feed D’lthmirsflayt enough living creatures to fill up the weapon, then they must feed it a lich’s filactary. Then lastly the player must translate the deep speech. After all is done the players get a +2 in their choice of int wis or cha, a +1 in str dex or con, and +1 AC. D’lthmirsflayt is a heavy finesse weapon does 2d6 psychic and 1d6 piercing and a range of 20 feet.
  52. Biscuit Mansfield- a spear with the soul of a very excited golden retriever.
  53. Slick Rick- a dagger that looks like a harmonica. Slick Rick was one part of a crime family but was turned into a dagger after cheating a wizard out of gold. Slick Rick gives the wielder advice on what to say and usually defaults to lying. The wielder gains +2 cha and a proficiency in deception. If the wielder already is proficient in deception they gain expertise in deception.
  54. Brantsiver - the soul of an archivist trapped inside a shortsword. The sword's hilt is covered in brass carvings, depicting a library full of books, scrolls, and magical apparatus. Able to respond to almost any "what's that thing?" query, and can cast Identify once per day. Brantsiver Keldo died on a research expedition to the Lost Library of Poonf, and often talks of its wonders; when he's not sighing happily about particular books fabled to be in the library, he's a quiet but pleasant voice to talk to.
  55. Thinga - a long rice flail (1d6 Bludgeoning - 5lbs - Finesse, Reach, Two-Handed) containing the soul of a rice farmer. Thinga was killed by goblins while walking through his field one night, and each day he wakes up reliving his last moments, with no memory of his new life as a magical weapon. He spends each morning questioning the party on where he is, who they are, and what their purpose is. By mid-afternoon, he has resolved to help them on their mission and explored his new powers. After at least six hours talking, Thinga transforms into a heavy war flail (+1, 1d8 Bludgeoning - 7lbs - Heavy, Two-Handed, Reach). Regardless of form, when fighting goblins or protecting peasants, Thinga gains an extra 1d6 Thunder damage.
  56. Sick Brick- a brick (1d4 bludgeon, throwing) that sneezes often.
  57. Stack Max- a shield who always complains about how you’re carrying too many items.
  58. Byek’ki - a pale wood bo staff that when striking an opponent talks about their basic interests in life. Wielder takes a -1 to intelligence, however any creature hit must make an INT save. On a fail, the creature is deafened.
  59. Pennington - A +1 wand that used to belong to a wizard academy. If the wielder misses with a spell attack, the wand will encourage them patronizingly and give them some help by becoming a +3 wand for their next turn. If they miss the second time he gives up and becomes a regular wand for the remainder of combat.
  60. Doctor Wallop - A warhammer who constantly nags the wielder if there are wounded allies nearby. Deals an additional 1d8 radiant damage if the wielder cast a healing spell on an ally last round.
  61. Oakley - A longbow that thinks it's just the coolest. Frequently reminds the wielder how awesome they look together. When making an attack with Oakley, you may use either your Dexterity or Charisma modifier.
  62. Talking sword- a shortsword that always reminds the party how “I can talk” and “weapons don’t do that” or “I bet you don’t see talking weapons often”.
  63. Eyelander- a lazy talking ghost sword, with its own will, attunement doesn't work perfectly with it.
  64. Artemis- a crossbow who is paranoid and sees visions of the future. The wielder cannot be ambushed.
  65. Bartolomeo - a big warmace, with the apperance like a greater bag of holding with a staff attached. He is following the party and constantly remind them, that he want to find an old man, with a white beard and red clothes until the start of winter. If the party is nice to Bartolomeo, he acts like a greater bag of holding and could be used as a great mace +2 with 1d6 dmg (because he is biting). Sometimes he would not give you a stored item (especially if you were acting evil). You have to tickle him, then he spits out your stuff.
  66. Harrison- A heavy dwarf warhammer that giggles uncontrollably when being swung.
  67. Axe of Pazuzu- a battleaxe that translates infernal to the wielder.
  68. Luther- a +3 longsword that was once worshipped by a cult and laments the party for taking him away from his life as a cult leader.
  69. Mr.Snip- a cast iron crab statue. When in range he will pinch them doing 2d4+wisdom modifier. Mr.Snips only speaks aquan. He liked to have gold and enjoys hurting people. He wants one day to be cast in gold.
  70. Gloves- a pair of +2 cestus with mouths that make growling and snarling noises.
  71. Polnareff - arrogant rapier that can speak Elven and tries to flirt with women.
  72. Ferguson - a remarkably sturdy kite shield with a prominent relief-sculpture of a steadfast, surly-looking unarmed knight with arms folded across his chest. Boasts of combat prowess at inappropriate times. Growls menacingly moments before combat. When the shield is used in combat, however, the decorative knight animates to cower in terror with each incoming blow, and utters cringey noises. It does carry a 3-point AC bonus, it's just awkward after combat as it downplays its own cowardice, and instead highlights its own version of actual successes during the melee.
  73. Gestalt- a net that says discouraging words to victims. -2 on all checks to escape.
  74. Gunther - A flintlock/rifle that belittles and mocks its user at first. The more fights its user wins using it however, the more it warms up to them and starts giving them helpful battle advice.
  75. Ulsbane- a +3 axe wielded by a hex blade warlock. Talks of great beasts and monsters to kill and how he can offer power beyond imagination.
  76. One sword to rule them all- a greatsword that speaks in movie references.
  77. Jakobs flute- a +3 shortsword that doubles as a flute. Was once owned by a powerful bard. Will sing of the parties accomplishments when resting, this counts as a 1d12 song of rest.
  78. Diplomarius- a +1 longsword that can turn into a pen. The pen can move on it’s own and will write things to the party. Diplomarius is very scholarly and will insult all non magic users of the party.
  79. Feldor- a 12 year old sorcerer who died along with his family years ago and can speak through a decorative knife from beyond the grave. Will speak to the user in a poor sounding quality and occasionally gets interrupted by his parents who want him to come down for dinner which he will normally reply with “not now mom I’m helping adventures!”. Can be used as a spell casting focus for any class and does not require attunement.
  80. Paul- An axe possessed by the spirit of a lumberjack. Comments occasionally on the quality of wooden fixtures, furniture, etc, and urges the wielder to fell particularly large, healthy-looking trees with him. Gruff and stoic, but overall not a bad guy.
  81. Knick- A particularly unintelligent shovel. Prone to pointing out the obvious. Wants the wielder to steal things, seems to have a particular fondness for grave robbery. Found with Knack.
  82. Knack- A particularly unintelligent pickaxe. Prone to giving awful advice and suggesting hare-brained ideas and schemes. Has somewhat of an obsession with gold. Found with Knick.
  83. Dad- A greatsword that seems to adopt the wielder as its child upon attunement. Offers dadly advice, platitudes, etc., and enjoys telling stories of his youth. Exceedingly proud of the wielder by default, and admonishes them when they misbehave or do something considered "bad" by typical moral standards. Grants a +1 to Wisdom saving throws.
  84. Mom- A greataxe that seems to adopt the wielder as its child upon attunement. Has a personality and vocabulary roughly equivalent to that of a stereotypical 1950s housewife. Insists that the wielder stays safe and takes care of themselves, and fusses over them when/if they fail to do either. May attempt to mother other party members, as well. Grants a +1 to Charisma saving throws.
  85. Kendra- A sardonic, lackadaisical mace that despises fighting, not because of any moral qualms, but because it's so much damn work. Grants a +1 to attack and damage rolls, but only for the first three rounds of combat.
  86. Chad- An ornate shortsword with a frat boy attitude. Enjoys parties and women. Gets defensive if you refer to him as a "shortsword" and insists that he's totally a longsword.
  87. Frank- A longbow that insists he's just a normal person and doesn't know how he got in a weapon, totally freaked out by the prospect of being used in battle.
  88. Cursed sickle of the mummy lord- a +2 sickle that is cursed. Once the weapon is held the wielder loses their ability to speak and all their words come out of the sickle. The wielder can’t speak without holding the weapon until the curse is lifted.
  89. Gremblo- a goblin trapped in a whip. Will try to convince the wielder to do drugs and eat poisonous plants.
  90. Percius- an awakened shark head on a stick. Does 2d8+ str modifier. When hungry Percius will talk only about murder and eating but when he’s full he’s actually a very nice person who makes poetry (of varying degrees of quality) and is a wine and cheese expert.
  91. Lance hardwood- a +2 spear with his name engraved on the shaft that says nothing until a party member makes a joke about his name. He’ll then get very defensive about how people shouldn’t make fun of his name. After a while if the party doesn’t stop Lance will impose disadvantage on attack rolls to the wielder out of spite.
  92. Shield of the wise elders- A shield that gives the wielder +2 wis. Once a day the wielder can ask the shield if there are traps nearby. The shield will then tell the wielder of the amount of traps within a 100ft circle but not where they are. If a trap requires a passcode the shield will speak the passcode to disarm the trap. The shield knows no language barrier.
  93. Xsan- a spear made of a Lizardfolks bones. The spear used to be an old Lizardfolk with dementia before a warlock used him as an experiment. Xsan will go into fits of hysteria and will on occasion talk about his wife whom he loves.
  94. Ra'aliki- The tip of a spear, found embedded in the back of dangerous game. Excitable and curious, and eager to bury itself into the flesh of any notably exotic creature. Does an extra 1d6 damage to beasts.
  95. Gaz’yuthlix- a battleaxe that does 2d8 fire damage and 1d8 slashing damage. The axe will use cunning words to convince the player to keep using it and entice the wielder with how powerful they are together. The axe will drain the wielder of energy. With the axe the wielder no longer gets benefits from short rests. Over time this will extend to long rests and later will extend to all forms of healing. The wielder must bury the axe to remove the curse or use a spell to remove curses.
  96. Sword of truth- a +2 longsword that only speaks to correct a wielder if they are lying.
  97. King- a +1 shovel wrapped in barbed wire that deals an extra 2d8 to undead creatures. King despises undead and wants to bury all of them. King will make puns often to the party.
  98. Theodore archduke of Quentshire- a sling that claims to have royal heritage. Theodore refuses to sling anything that isn’t precious gemstones.
  99. Tybalt- a golf club that does 1d8 bludgeon and is versatile who hates golf. Tybalt's favorite pass time is watching hockey. He sees being a weapon as a job and the party as his employers. Tybalt is unbreakable by all means except for level 7 spells or higher. The party must discuss a day of the week for Tybalt to be inactive and 10 minutes in the day for Tybalts lunch break. On Tybalts lunch break and day off he does 1d4 and complains about "having to work on his day off".
  100. blade of Arthur - A +1 staff that thinks it's a sword because it was used by a child named Arthur as a play sword. Over the years, it was convinced by the child's imagination that it is a wondrous sword and constantly belittles the wielder for not sharpening it, not holding it correctly, getting it wet, etc.

The wielder must first feed D’lthmirsflayt enough living creatures to fill up the weapon, then they must feed it a lich’s filactary. Then lastly the player must translate the deep speech. After all is done the players get a +2 in their choice of int wis or cha, a +1 in str dex or con, and +1 AC. D’lthmirsflayt is a heavy finesse weapon does 2d6 psychic and 1d6 piercing and a range of 20 feet.
  52. Biscuit Mansfield- a spear with the soul of a very excited golden retriever.
  53. Slick Rick- a dagger that looks like a harmonica. Slick Rick was one part of a crime family but was turned into a dagger after cheating a wizard out of gold. Slick Rick gives the wielder advice on what to say and usually defaults to lying. The wielder gains +2 cha and a proficiency in deception. If the wielder already is proficient in deception they gain expertise in perception.
  54. Brantsiver - the soul of an archivist trapped inside a shortsword. The sword's hilt is covered in brass carvings, depicting a library full of books, scrolls, and magical apparatus. Able to respond to almost any "what's that thing?" query, and can cast Identify once per day. Brantsiver Keldo died on a research expedition to the Lost Library of Poonf, and often talks of its wonders; when he's not sighing happily about particular books fabled to be in the library, he's a quiet but pleasant voice to talk to.
  55. Thinga - a long rice flail (1d6 Bludgeoning - 5lbs - Finesse, Reach, Two-Handed) containing the soul of a rice farmer. Thinga was killed by goblins while walking through his field one night, and each day he wakes up reliving his last moments, with no memory of his new life as a magical weapon. He spends each morning questioning the party on where he is, who they are, and what their purpose is. By mid-afternoon, he has resolved to help them on their mission and explored his new powers. After at least six hours talking, Thinga transforms into a heavy war flail (+1, 1d8 Bludgeoning - 7lbs - Heavy, Two-Handed, Reach). Regardless of form, when fighting goblins or protecting peasants, Thinga gains an extra 1d6 Thunder damage.
  56. Sick Brick- a brick (1d4 bludgeon) that sneezes often.
  57. Stack Max- a shield who always complains about how you’re carrying too many items.
  58. Byek’ki - a pale wood bo staff that when striking an opponent that talks about their basic interests in life. Wielder takes a -1 to intelligence, however any creature hit must make an INT save. On a fail, the creature is deafened.
  59. Pennington - A +1 wand that used to belong to a wizard academy. If the wielder misses with a spell attack, the wand will encourage them patronizingly and give them some help by becoming a +3 wand for their next turn. If they miss the second time he gives up and becomes a regular wand for the remainder of combat.
  60. Doctor Wallop - A warhammer who constantly nags the wielder if there are wounded allies nearby. Deals an additional 1d8 radiant damage if the wielder cast a healing spell on an ally last round.
  61. Oakley - A longbow that thinks it's just the coolest. Frequently reminds the wielder how awesome they look together. When making an attack with Oakley, you may use either your Dexterity or Charisma modifier.
  62. Talking sword- a shortsword that always reminds the party how “I can talk” and “weapons don’t do that” or “I bet you don’t see talking weapons often”.
  63. Eyelander- a lazy talking ghost sword, with its own will, attunement doesn't work perfectly with it.
  64. Artemis- a crossbow who is paranoid and sees visions of the future. The wielder cannot be ambushed.
  65. Bartolomeo - a big warmace, with the apperance like a greater bag of holding with a staff attached. He is following the party and constantly remind them, that he want to find an old man, with a white beard and red clothes until the start of winter. If the party is nice to Bartolomeo, he acts like a greater bag of holding and could be used as a great mace +2 with 1d6 dmg (because he is biting). Sometimes he would not give you a stored item (especially if you were acting evil). You have to tickle him, then he spits out your stuff.
  66. Harradon: A heavy dwarf warhammer that giggles uncontrollably when being swung.
  67. Axe of Pazuzu- a battleaxe that translates infernal to the wielder.
  68. Luther- a +3 longsword that was once worshipped by a cult and laments the party for taking him away from his life as a cult leader.
  69. Mr.Snip- a cast iron crab statue. When in range he will pinch them doing 2d4+wisdom modifier. Mr.Snips only speaks aquan. He liked to have gold and enjoys hurting people. He wants one day to be cast in gold.
  70. Gloves- a pair of +2 cestus with mouths that make growling and snarling noises.
  71. Polnareff - arrogant rapier that can speak Elven and tries to flirt with women.
  72. Ferguson - a remarkably sturdy kite shield with a prominent relief-sculpture of a steadfast, surly-looking unarmed knight with arms folded across his chest. Boasts of combat prowess at inappropriate times. Growls menacingly moments before combat. When the shield is used in combat, however, the decorative knight animates to cower in terror with each incoming blow, and utters cringey noises. It does carry a 3-point AC bonus, it's just awkward after combat as it downplays its own cowardice, and instead highlights its own version of actual successes during the melee.
  73. Gestalt- a net that says discouraging words to victims. -2 on all checks to escape.
  74. Gunther - A flintlock/rifle that belittles and mocks its user at first. The more fights its user wins using it however, the more it warms up to them and starts giving them helpful battle advice.
  75. Ulsbane- a +3 axe wielded by a hex blade warlock. Talks of great beasts and monsters to kill and how he can offer power beyond imagination.
  76. One sword to rule them all- a greatsword that speaks in movie references.
  77. Jakobs flute- a +3 shortsword that doubles as a flute. Was once owned by a powerful bard. Will sing of the parties accomplishments when resting, this counts as a 1d12 song of rest.
  78. Diplomarius- a +1 longsword that can turn into a pen. The pen can move on it’s own and will write things to the party. Diplomarius is very scholarly and will insult all non magic users of the party.
  79. Feldor- a 12 year old sorcerer who died along with his family years ago and can speak through a decorative knife from beyond the grave. Will speak to the user in a poor sounding quality and occasionally gets interrupted by his parents who want him to come down for dinner which he will normally reply with “not now mom I’m helping adventures!”. Can be used as a spell casting focus for any class and does not require attunement.
  80. Paul- An axe possessed by the spirit of a lumberjack. Comments occasionally on the quality of wooden fixtures, furniture, etc, and urges the wielder to fell particularly large, healthy-looking trees with him. Gruff and stoic, but overall not a bad guy.
  81. Knick- A particularly unintelligent shovel. Prone to pointing out the obvious. Wants the wielder to steal things, seems to have a particular fondness for grave robbery. Found with Knack.
  82. Knack- A particularly unintelligent pickaxe. Prone to giving awful advice and suggesting hare-brained ideas and schemes. Has somewhat of an obsession with gold. Found with Knick.
  83. Dad- A greatsword that seems to adopt the wielder as its child upon attunement. Offers dadly advice, platitudes, etc., and enjoys telling stories of his youth. Exceedingly proud of the wielder by default, and admonishes them when they misbehave or do something considered "bad" by typical moral standards. Grants a +1 to Wisdom saving throws.
  84. Mom- A greataxe that seems to adopt the wielder as its child upon attunement. Has a personality and vocabulary roughly equivalent to that of a stereotypical 1950s housewife. Insists that the wielder stays safe and takes care of themselves, and fusses over them when/if they fail to do either. May attempt to mother other party members, as well. Grants a +1 to Charisma saving throws.
  85. Kendra- A sardonic, lackadaisical mace that despises fighting, not because of any moral qualms, but because it's so much damn work. Grants a +1 to attack and damage rolls, but only for the first three rounds of combat.
  86. Chad- An ornate shortsword with a frat boy attitude. Enjoys parties and women. Gets defensive if you refer to him as a "shortsword" and insists that he's totally a longsword.
  87. Frank- A longbow that insists he's just a normal person and doesn't know how he got in a weapon, totally freaked out by the prospect of being used in battle.
  88. Cursed sickle of the mummy lord- a +2 sickle that is cursed. Once the weapon is held the wielder loses their ability to speak and all their words come out of the sickle. The wielder can’t speak without holding the weapon until the curse is lifted.
  89. Gremblo- a goblin trapped in a whip. Will try to convince the wielder to do drugs and eat poisonous plants.
  90. Percius- an awakened shark head on a stick. Does 2d8+ str modifier. When hungry Percius will talk only about murder and eating but when he’s full he’s actually a very nice person who makes poetry (of varying degrees of quality) and is a wine and cheese expert.
  91. Lance hardwood- a +2 spear with his name engraved on the shaft that says nothing until a party member makes a joke about his name. He’ll then get very defensive about how people shouldn’t make fun of his name. After a while if the party doesn’t stop Lance will impose disadvantage on the wielder out of spite.
  92. Shield of the wise elders- A shield that gives the wielder +2 wis. Once a day the wielder can ask the shield if there are traps nearby. The shield will then tell the wielder of the amount of traps within a 100ft circle but not where they are. If a trap requires a passcode the shield will speak the passcode to disarm the trap. The shield knows no language barrier.
  93. Xsan- a spear made of a Lizardfolks bones. The spear used to be an old Lizardfolk with dementia before a warlock used him as an experiment. Xsan will go into fits of hysteria and will on occasion talk about his wife whom he loves.
  94. Ra'aliki- The tip of a spear, found embedded in the back of dangerous game. Excitable and curious, and eager to bury itself into the flesh of any notably exotic creature. Does an extra 1d6 damage to beasts.
  95. Gaz’yuthlix- a battleaxe that does 2d8 fire damage and 1d8 slashing damage. The axe will use cunning words to convince the player to keep using it and entice the wielder with how powerful they are together. The axe will drain the wielder of energy. With the axe the wielder no longer gets benefits from short rests. Over time this will extend to long rests and later will extend to all forms of healing. The wielder must bury the axe to remove the curse or use a spell to remove curses.
  96. Sword of truth- a +2 longsword that only speaks to correct a wielder if they are lying.
  97. King- a +1 shovel wrapped in barbed wire that deals an extra 2d8 to undead creatures. King despises undead and wants to bury all of them. King will make puns often to the party.
  98. Theodore archduke of Quentshire- a sling that claims to have royal heritage. Theodore refuses to sling anything that isn’t precious gemstones.
  99. Tybalt- a golf club that does 1d8 bludgeon and is versatile who hates golf. Tybalt's favorite pass time is watching hockey. He sees being a weapon as a job and the party as his employers. Tybalt is unbreakable by all means except for level 7 spells or higher. The party must discuss a day of the week for Tybalt to be inactive and 10 minutes in the day for Tybalts lunch break. On Tybalts lunch break and day off he does 1d4 and complains about "having to work on his day off".
  100. blade of Arthur - A +1 staff that thinks it's a sword because it was used by a child named Arthur as a play sword. Over the years, it was convinced by the child's imagination that it is a wondrous sword and constantly belittles the wielder for not sharpening it, not holding it correctly, getting it wet, etc.

Carving on rocker skis?

For some reason, I just can't get the hang of it. My husband is an expert and is frustrated with trying to get me to carve/edge properly, but I suspect his methods work better on his old-school skis.
I can side-slip forever, and manage to stay upright and steer as needed, but control at speed is an issue. He can point his skis straight down, go fast, and somehow maintain control (usually on the sides where there's more powder.)
But once I point downhill and get speed, all bets are off- I have to hockey-stop and start again, or make wide turns across the whole slope.
He emphasizes that I need to lean forward almost on tip-toe but that makes the backs come up and I have to lean back to get them down again. The ski seems designed to steer from the center, not the tips the way he describes.
Anyway, I've been an intermediate for years, and can't quite figure out how to improve my form and control. Even hired an instructor one day, and it didn't help much. Don't know if anybody here has had a similar experience?

Evo Guide - Jan 12th

So hey, sorry for creating another discussion on the same topic, but it was to make it cleaner, I finished all the EVO cards, so here it goes !
Which EVO card I should acquire? How's that EVO card? Those are questions we see a lot, and I decided to create a little guide that could help you. In this guide, I will attribute a grade on 10. The higher the grade is, better the card is investment wise.
I warn you, I'm pretty hard on cards that are higher than 350K. I can't see those card being good investment. They might me safe investment, but you invest a lot of your capital in one card when you could invest it in 2-3-4 cards with similar upsides.
I evaluate the investment grade on the money you could get by re-selling the card AND on the potential of the card as a usable player on your squade.
I will try to update the list once a week, but I won't update all the EVO. The updates will be written in bold. Because of that, some cards like Ovechkin or Guentzel might have the same description for months... and there is a reason for that.
For the price of the cards, I'm using brianstormed Auction House Prices (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1fMfRLGawWMxTBn4lznogNV08ko0W-xKzMTvlaXucjiA/edit#gid=1260050322), a pretty usefull tool if you don't already use it.
I'm not an expert, I took bad decision in the past when it comes to EVO. You will probably disagree with a lot of things, don't hesitate to comment so we can have a discussion, I will try to help you the best I can.
Also, I didn't bother doing the goaltender. The Vezina race for me is not clear and I'm an awful analyst for goaltenders... maybe later... but here's a tip: never spend too much money on a goaltender.
LW - A. Ovechkin - 97OVR - 900K - 0/10
Ovechkin is already 97 of overall with most of his important stats maxed out. If you need his synergies, I could see why you would aquire him, but there is definitely better options out there. His informs are way cheaper and will give you a similar result. So even when he'll reach 99OVR, I don't see him getting that much better and I don't see his value increasing that much, meaning that from an investing point of view, at that price, it's not worth it.
C - C. McDavid - 95OVR - 980K - 0/10
The poster boy will reach 99OVR eventually and he's already a beast of a card. But like Ovi, his auction house price is way too high to get a great return if you sell him back. If what you want is investing on a potential 99OVR player, he could be an option, but there is cheaper options out there, although more risky. In fact, for few 100k more, you could get Jagr or Iginla so... I would say to stay away from him.
C - S. Crosby - 95OVR - 850K - 2/10
I could write almost the same thing I wrote for McDavid, the exception being he's a little bit cheaper. Also, because his stats are a little bit more well distributed, he's an all-around better player so he's potentially the best option for an 99OVR outside of Brodeur, Iginla and Jagr. And that's coming from a big hater of the guy. So I guess, if you're rich... it's okay to acquire him but again, very expensive, informs will always be cheaper.
C - N. MacKinnon - 95OVR - 600k - 5/10
Nathan MacKinnon woke up and he's tearing everything up! If he continues like that, the potential of him getting 99OVR is real and make his card interesting for 600K. Personnaly, I still believe it's still too expensive, but at 600K, it's still and interesting investment. If he gets one more upgrade, I could see his value jump heavily and therefore, you could make a very interesting profit. If your plan is to keep the players, again, there is cheaper options out there.
RD - E. Karlsson - 95OVR - 950K - 0/10
Karlsson will definitely be the best defenseman in the game, he's physicality being the only point where he won't be awsome, but still higher than average. 950k is too expensive though to make a profit when you re-sell and informs are way cheaper for a similar result.
RW - N. Kucherov - 95OVR - 965K - 0/10
Kucherov already has most of his important stats maxed out. In fact, his 94 ICE card is already overpowered for a fraction of the price. And it goes without saying that 950k is too expensive to make any profit on re-selling the card.
C - S. Stamkos - 94OVR - 730K - 0/10
Even if Stamkos is almost a lock for a team of the year and therefore, will probably be 99OVR, like Kucherov, most of his important stats are maxed out. In fact, his 94 ICE card is already overpowered for a fraction of the price. And opposed to MacKinnon situation, 730K is too expensive to make any significant profit on re-selling the card.
LD - V. Hedman - 94OVR - 650K - 2/5
Hedman is a beast defensively and a very capable offensive defenseman if needed. EA loves him so far so I wouldn't be scared to bet money on his odds of making a team of the year. With his injury, his value dropped significantly so wait a week or two and buy when it's pretty low. Even by missing 6 weeks, I'm confident he'll have upgrades and he's already a fantastic player at 94.
RW - P. Kane - 94OVR - 750K - 0/10
I know that I'm repeating myself, but 750K is too expensive to make any significant profit on re-selling the card. Informs will do.
C - J. Tavares - 93OVR - 540K - 5/10
540K is expensive, but for a 93OVR player that has the potential to have a high OVR in a team of the year, it's almost cheap. He's on a good pace and if he continues like this, this card will be very interesting. The reason why this card is so cheap is probably due to Tavares' speed. 89 of speed and acceleration is pretty sad for a high end card. So if he reached a high overall, don't expect his card to be worth 1M, but I still beleive profit can be made out of this card. The problem is that the card is not that awsome and depending of your team, he will probably sit on your 3rd or 4th line for now, so it's still a lot of money for a bottom six center.
LW - B. Marchand - 93OVR - 245K - 10/10
Don't waste your time reading this, just go on the auction house and buy one before it's too late. I can't understand why he's so cheap. I thought after jumping at 93OVR, his price would jump violently, but no... for now. It's only a question of time before is goes up so you'll be able to cash in. And if you simply want to have a good player, it works too. He's a well rounded player, a lock on a team of the year... no, really, Marchand is a no brainer at that price.
LW - J. Gaudreau - 93OVR - 265K - 8/10
I was also suprised to see Gaudreau so low. I don't know what his price was months ago, my theory is that he slowed down a little bit as a player... but he's still a top scorer in the league and going at it recently. A player like Gaudreau can get a Prime Time card every game, you just never know. There's also potential for a team of the year. Of course, he's also a very good card, although he's very week and can be destroyed easily if you're not careful... but you can use that at your advantage. The reason why he's not a 10/10 is that he's not neceserly a lock for a team of the year and that his ICE card has most of his important stats maxed up so it's a cheap alternative if all you're looking for is a good winger.
RW - B. Wheeler - 93OVR - 290K - 10/10
Again, a head scrather here. Like Marchand, jump on the auction house and buy him as soon as possible. You can get him for less than 300K and he's amongsts the point leaders right now, if he continues like this, I don't see him not getting a team of the year nod. The only explanations I have for his low price is the fact he didn't receive an inform since his ICE card and that his stats don't look that sexy. But Wheeler is a well-rounder player and everytime he'll upgrade, he'll become and even more complete player. Also, he's a huge guy, flawless defensively... again, if you have the money, it's a no brainer.
C - M. Scheifele - 92OVR - 180K - 4/10
Interesting case here. Sheifele was a point-per-game player before his injury, which is good. But because of his injury, his price dramaticaly dropped. 180K for a 92 EVO card is pretty good. He's suppose to come back in February where he could rack some points but with Wheeler getting a team of the year nod and Ehlers potentially getting a young guns team of the year, I don't see Scheifeler increasing a lot. That being said, he could receive special cards during the playoffs and Prime Time is not out of question, after all, the price is cheap! But you will have to wait a lot.
C - P. Bergeron - 92OVR - 500K - 7/10
Usually, I don't give 3s when the card is higher than 350K but in Bergeron's case, I'm happy to make an exception. He is a lock for the defensive team of the year. Also, his stats are well distributed which means that his advanced stats are juicy and makes him a well-rounder player. But even more importantly, he's a centerman with a killer faceoff rating.
RD - D. Doughty - 92OVR - 650K - 5/10
Doughty is having a good season and his card is really good, so it explains the price. That being said, it's pretty expensive. Profit can be made out of this, but it's a lot of money. But if you want to keep him in your line-up, he's a beast, so it won't hurt you to be patient.
RD - P.K. Subban - 92OVR - 350K - 9/10
He's not as a no brainer as Wheeler and Marchand, but he's pretty close. Subban is a popular player, if you don't act soon, his price will raise significantly. After a slow start, Subban is amongst the best pointer on the blue line. With his popularity, I could see him getting a nod for offensive team of the year. He's not the best defenseman, but his stats are well rounded so he has the potential to be unstoppable. If you have the money, I think it's a safe bet!
RW - V. Tarasenko - 92OVR - 300K - 8/10
I love Tarasenko, I'm a huge Blues fan and this card is killer. He's on pace to have the best year of his career and he got a team of the year nod for less than that last year. The Blues have a hard time right now, so his productions is not as great, but it's still there. When Schwartz will be back though... I could see him being snobbed, but I believe. I'm biased though, him being my favourite player.
C - Claude Giroux - 92OVR - 650K - 5/10
Claude is an amazing card. But his price is ridiculous. But like Bergeron, if you want to wait and get a stronge centerman at the dot, you won't be disapointed but you will pay the price. If investing is what you're looking for, it could be an interesting option, I see that card gaining value, but again, it's very expensive.
RD - B. Burns - 92OVR - 370K - 7/10
Burns is roaring back, EA loves him, he's getting more informs now... this guy is going nowhere but up. The price is not too high. The only problem with Burns, is that his Master Collectible Player is so good, that I don't see using his EVO card until he reached 95-96OVR. Ok, I might be exagerating here, but that's how much good that card is. But, if what you're looking for is making a profit, I think it will pay off eventually.
C - A. Kopitar - 92OVR - 270K - 6/10
Kopitar is having a killer year. This card is a cheaper version of Tavares and could see a similar increase in rate and price. But like Tavares, Kopitar is very slow and because of that, I could see him not gaining that much value. But at 270K, it's definitely worth it, I don't see him losing value anytime soon. But if you only have 350K to invest, Kopitar is not the first card I would work on.
C - J. Eichel - 92OVR - 190K - 9/10
Eichel's card is money, litteraly and figuratively. Such a great card. He's so cheap, it's ridicoulus. Playing on the Sabres roster, his stats are suffering. But it's almost a miracle that he's almost a point-per-game player right now. I can't say I'm 100% sure he'll be on a team of the year roster, but he's young, so we never know. At that price, I don't see why you wouldn't take this tiny chance. Also, he's right handed... you never have enough of those.
C - Tyler Seguin - 92OVR - 380K - 5/10
People might disagree, but I don't think we'll see many upgrades for Seguin in the future. He's having a good year though, so I'm probably wrong. His card is amazing though, but you can always use informs if needed. The price is definitely high for a card that I consider not having that much upside, but I must be the only one to think that so don't take my word for it.
RD - J. Klingberg - 92OVR - 400K - 6/10
He just got out and he's pretty expensive. He's the best pointer at the blue line, he seems to be a lock for offensive team of the year. 400K, while it's a lot, could give you way more enventually because that card will get better, much better.
LW - J. Benn - 91OVR - 200K - 5/10
Benn is a good card, well-rounded. Also, he received his fair share of love from EA with some team of the week informs here and there. He definitely has the upside to receive some other informs, but being under a point-per-game, I don't see him getting a team of the year nod. The price is fair, the value is solid, but in terms of investment, it's not the best deal.
C - E. Malkin - 91OVR - 220K - 6/10
Ah, Malkin. I wanted to get him since he's released. But he kind of has a weird season. Right now, he's over a point-per-game and he's usually a lock for offensive team of the year, but I'm still not convinced. But it's Malkin... the guy can get a 5 points game anytime soon. His upside, for me, is interesting and he's not that expensive. It's a gamble, but I'd do it.
C - A. Barkov - 91OVR - 140K - 8/10
Barkov is almost a point-per-game, he's only 22 and a really gifted player offensively and defensively. I have a lot of faith in that card for all those reasons. No so long ago, he was under 100k, his price got higher recently... I'd go for it.
RW - B. Schenn - 91OVR - 150K - 4/10
I'm a Blues fan and I can't still believe his season. Since Schwartz injury, he slowed down. He was comfortably over a point-per-game no so long ago and now, he's dangerously declining. The price is defintely appealing but I see him having a hard second part of the year. He's not the first one I would invest in, but you never know.
C - L. Draisaitl - 91OVR - 110K - 5/10
It all depends on how EA will decide Young Guns Team Of The Year. Two years ago, it was U23. Last year, it was entry-level contract (which explains Panarin). Draisailt is young, but he's at his second professional contract. The Oilers are having a bad time and I'm afraid Draisaitl won't get that much love for the rest of the year and trust me, I wish I am wrong. He's the kind of card that you can hold onto if you already have it, but don't bother buying him if you don't have him.
C - A. Matthews - 91OVR - 260K - 8/10
Matthews can explode at any giving time. He's almost a lock for a team of the year. He could be cheaper I presume, but unless he gets injured again, I see a lot of potential in that card.
RW - P. Laine - 91OVR - 200K - 6/10
I'm getting insecure about that card. There's too many good players on the Jets roster, they won't be able to all get a spot on a team of the year. He's not having a bad season, but not the one we were expecting and last time I checked, he doesn't play with the best linemates. But he's crazy young on an entry-level contract so he's not a bad bet and like Matthews, he can have a crazy night that will help him a lot. His upsides are bigger than his downside, hold onto this card if you have it and considere acquiring it if you already have all the other cards I suggested.
RW - J. Voracek - 91OVR - 190K - 7/10
He's so close to receive a 8/10. The reason why is because I think EA will upgrade Giroux and won't give much love to Voracek, which is sad because he's such a good player. I mean, he's 8th right now in scoring in the NHL, that should mean something but I simply have a bad feeling because he's not as sexy as a Kane, Taranseko, Benn, all players producing less. But it's a coin flip and could very much be a terrific investment. Definitely consider it.
RW - P. Kessel - 91OVR - 350OVR - 8/10
What a year for Phil "Berger" The Thrill. In front of Crosby AND Maklin in points, his card is also sexy as hell RIGHT NOW. His price is fair and should be a good fit on your squad as of today, imagine with any upgrades and trust me, he'll receive his share.
LW - T. Hall - 90OVR - 180K - 8/10
What a card! He doesn't feel like a 90OVR at all. He's fast and can shoot from everywhere! Also, he's leading the Devils in points over a point-per-game, on pace to have his best season. Some players are doing better than him but I still believe that if he continue like this, he'll get on a team of the year. At this price, there is not much to lose.
LD - R. Josi - 90OVR - 200K - 2/10
Who doesn't like Josi? He's a great defenseman. EA always liked Josi. But right now, it's not his best season and I think Subban will get most of the love. I don't see so many infors for him, maybe for defensive team of the year? I don't know. I sold mine recently because I was not confident. There is so much better options out there.
C - W. Karlsson - 90OVR - 160K - 4/10
I still have to pinch myself when I look at the Golden Knights and the standing. Same goes with Karlsson. He's on pace for 72 points, way more than what I would have expecting him to get. But this pace, while being amazing for him and the Knights, is not that amazing compared to other players. Team of the year is not like the all-star games, they don't need one person from every team and if it was the case, it would be Marchessault. I could see him getting some Prime Time here and there, but starting at 90 is not that amazing. He's cheap though, but wouldn't be my priority.
C - N. Backstrom - 90OVR - 250K - 4/10
I love Backstrom, such an underated player. Statisticly though, he's having a sub-par season. I could see him getting a nod for defensive team of the year, but maybe not... 250K is a lot to pay for so little "guarantee".
C - D. Larkin - 89OVR - 90K - 4/10
Yes, he skates fast. That's about it. 90K is still expensive for his upsides. The only reason why he's not a 1/5 is the fact that the kid is only 21 years old, we never know, could be in Young Guns Team Of The Year! But there is so many kids doing better right now... I don't see it happening.
LD - S. Gostisbehere - 89OVR - 90K - 9/10
You don't have Ghost? Buy him now. And then, buy him again. And if you can, buy him three times. The guy is second in point-per-game ratio on the blue line and doesn't show any signs of fatigue. If he doesn't slow down significantly, he's a lock for Offensive Team Of The Year. Seriously, get him, at least once, for this price, it really is a joke.
LD - O. Ekman-Larsson - 89OVR - 90K - 0/10
What a sad season for the Coyotes, and that included Ekman-Larsson. He doesn't even crack the top 40 when it comes for point by defensmen. I don't see anything coming for him.
RW - J. Marchessault - 88OVR - 90K - 6/10
Marchessault is definitely an intriguing option. Over a point-per-game, he could be Vegas representative on a team of the year... even if there is not such a thing. The only thing I worry about when it comes to Marchessault is his consistency. Will he be able to keep the pace? I doubt it. But if he does, good things will happend to this card and for 90K, it's not a big gamble.
C - J. Toews - 88OVR - 85K - 1/10
I can't believe Toews received an inform. Terrible season. I've given him a 1/10 because I see EA putting him on Defensive Team Of The Year because, you know... EA.
RW - B. Boeser - 88OVR - 240K - 10/10
Boeser is the front runner for the Calder. Of course, there is still a lot of hockey to play, but he seems to be a lock for Young Guns Team Of The Year. He's also a well-rounded card, although not especially strong defensively. Nonetheless, if you get one, I think you'll be very happy.
D - Z. Werenski - 88OVR - 50K - 7/10
A sophomore slump for Werenski? Hmm, maybe a little bit, but he's still the best goal scorer at the blue line! Under 23 years old, he's defintely amongst the top 10. That could not be enough to be on the Young Guns Team Of The Year, but I'm willing to take the bet for only 50K.
C - R. Rakell - 88OVR - 45K - 0/10
Not much to say... good player, but not good enough to get significant upgrades, and he'll need a lof of them to be relevent. 45K might not be a lot, but there is not enough upside to even care.
C - R. Getzlaf - 87OVR - 100K - 6/10
Back from injury, Getzlaf is dominating, over a point-per-game and I don't see him slowing down. His price indicates that I'm not the only one noticing this, pretty expensive for a 87. The only problem, is that he starting from far at 87 and will need a lot of upgrades to be relevant. I still think you can cash in on the hype after 2 or 3 upgrades, but I wouldn't wait to long to sell back.
LD - R. McDonagh - 87OVR - 30K - 1/10
This card is not worth much for a reason. I don't see a lot of upsides. McDonagh is still very capable defensively so I guess he could be on a Defensive Team Of The Year? It's a long shot though.
LW - S. Aho - 87OVR - 30K - 8/10
The price is very low and Aho is currently having a very good stretch and if he's keeping the pace, I easily see him on the Young Guns Team Of The Year and at this price, only buying one should not hurt you.
Lw - J. Drouin - 87OVR - 20K - 0/10
The Habs are having a terrible year and so is Drouin. He won't be good enough to have a stint at Young Guns Team Of The Year, don't waste your money.
C - William Nylander - 87OVR - 110K - 3/10
I think it won't be a popular opinion because people love Nylander, but I don't think Nylander has a lot of upsides. Sure, he's young and he's having good moments right now, but I doubt he will have so many upgrades and like Getzlaf, he starting from 87 so it will take a lot of upgrades to become worth it.
C - J. Guentzel - 86OVR - 20K - 0/10
Underwhelming season for Guentzel to say the least. Only one upgrade and it was during pre-season if I recall... hey... don't bother.

The Evo Guide - Jan 20th

Which EVO card I should acquire? How's that EVO card? Those are questions we see a lot, and I decided to create a little guide that could help you. In this guide, I will attribute a grade on 10. The higher the grade is, better the card is investment wise.
I warn you, I'm pretty hard on cards that are higher than 350K. I can't see those card being good investment. They might me safe investment, but you invest a lot of your capital in one card when you could invest it in 2-3-4 cards with similar upsides.
I evaluate the investment grade on the money you could get by re-selling the card AND on the potential of the card as a usable player on your squade.
I will try to update the list once a week, but I won't update all the EVO. The updates will be written in bold. Because of that, some cards like Ovechkin or Guentzel might have the same description for months... and there is a reason for that.
For the price of the cards, I'm using brianstormed Auction House Prices, a pretty usefull tool if you don't already use it. Take a look at his youtube channel, it's simply the best.
I'm not an expert, I took bad decision in the past when it comes to EVO. You will probably disagree with a lot of things, don't hesitate to comment so we can have a discussion, I will try to help you the best I can. I use those discussions to update the list.
Also, I didn't bother doing the goaltender. The Vezina race for me is not clear and I'm an awful analyst for goaltenders... maybe later... but here's a tip: never spend too much money on a goaltender.
LW - A. Ovechkin - 97OVR - 1M - 0/10
Ovechkin is already 97 of overall with most of his important stats maxed out. If you need his synergies, I could see why you would aquire him, but there is definitely better options out there. His informs are way cheaper and will give you a similar result. So even when he'll reach 99OVR, I don't see him getting that much better and I don't see his value increasing that much, meaning that from an investing point of view, at that price, it's not worth it.
C - C. McDavid - 96OVR - 1.2M - 0/10
The poster boy will reach 99OVR eventually and he's already a beast of a card. But like Ovi, his auction house price is way too high to get a great return if you sell him back. If what you want is investing on a potential 99OVR player, he could be an option, but there is cheaper options out there, although more risky.
C - S. Crosby - 95OVR - 950K - 2/10
I could write almost the same thing I wrote for McDavid, the exception being he's a little bit cheaper. Also, because his stats are a little bit more well distributed, he's an all-around better player so he's potentially the best option for an 99OVR outside of Brodeur, Iginla and Jagr. And that's coming from a big hater of the guy. So I guess, if you're rich... it's okay to acquire him but again, very expensive, informs will always be cheaper.
C - N. MacKinnon - 95OVR - 700k - 0/10
Nathan MacKinnon woke up and he's tearing everything up! If he continues like that, the potential of him getting 99OVR is real... but 700K is a lot to invest in one player. Personnaly, I still believe it's still too expensive. MacKinnon is a very good card, but he's also very tiny, I don't see him getting so much more in value. If you love the guy, invest in informs.
RD - E. Karlsson - 85OVR - 950K - 0/10
Karlsson will definitely be the best defenseman in the game, he's physicality being the only point where he won't be awsome, but still higher than average. 950k is too expensive though to make a profit when you re-sell and informs are way cheaper for a similar result.
RW - N. Kucherov - 95OVR - 1.150M - 0/10
Kucherov already has most of his important stats maxed out. In fact, his 94 ICE card is already overpowered for a fraction of the price. And it goes without saying that 950k is too expensive to make any profit on re-selling the card.
C - S. Stamkos - 94OVR - 950K - 0/10
Even if Stamkos is almost a lock for a team of the year and therefore, will probably be 99OVR, like Kucherov, most of his important stats are maxed out. In fact, his 94 ICE card is already overpowered for a fraction of the price. And opposed to MacKinnon situation, 950K is too expensive to make any significant profit on re-selling the card.
LD - V. Hedman - 94OVR - 650K - 4/10
After a week, Hedman's injury didn't affect his value yet. 650K is a lot to pay for an injured player. Hedman is a beast defensively and a very capable offensive defenseman if needed. Even by missing 6 weeks, I'm confident he'll have upgrades and he's already a fantastic player at 94, so if his price goes down to around 500K, I'd jump on him.
RW - P. Kane - 94OVR - 720K - 0/10
I know that I'm repeating myself, but 750K is too expensive to make any significant profit on re-selling the card. Informs will do.
LW - J. Gaudreau - 94OVR - 350K - 8/10
I was also suprised to see Gaudreau so low. I don't know what his price was months ago, my theory is that he slowed down a little bit as a player... but he's still a top scorer in the league and going at it recently. A player like Gaudreau can get a Prime Time card every game, you just never know. The reason why he's not a 10/10 is that he can get destroyed quite easily because of his size and because of that, his price will never be that high. Also, his ICE card has most of his important stats maxed up so it's a cheap alternative if all you're looking for is a good winger. But 350K for a 94 EVO? That's quite cheap.
C - J. Tavares - 93OVR - 475K - 6/10
Tavares' price dropped of almost 100K. 475K is not that expensive for one of the league leader in points and an almost lock for OTOTY. He's on a good pace and if he continues like this, this card will be very interesting. The reason why this card is so cheap is probably due to Tavares' speed. 89 of speed and acceleration is pretty sad for a high end card. So if he reached a high overall, don't expect his card to gain that much value. The problem is that the card is not that awsome and depending of your team, he will probably sit on your 3rd or 4th line for now, so it's still a lot of money for a bottom six center.
LW - B. Marchand - 93OVR - 350K - 10/10
Don't waste your time reading this, just go on the auction house and buy one before it's too late. Marchand is a polarizing player, everyone loves him... or loves to hate him. And because of his relatively small size, his price is not expensive. Even if I agree is no Wheeler when it comes to size, he's no Gaudreau either and is a very well-rounded player. After jumping at 93OVR, his price would jump a good 100K... so it shows there's a profit possible in the future. It's only a question of time before is goes up again. And if you simply want to have a good player, it works too. He's a well rounded player, a lock on a team of the year... no, really, Marchand is a no brainer at that price.
RW - B. Wheeler - 93OVR - 350K - 10/10
Again, a head scrather here. Like Marchand, jump on the auction house and buy him as soon as possible. He's amongsts the point leaders right now, if he continues like this, I don't see him not getting a team of the year nod. The only explanations I have for his low price is the fact he didn't receive an inform since his ICE card and that his stats don't look that sexy. But Wheeler is a well-rounder player and everytime he'll upgrade, he'll become and even more complete player. Also, he's a huge guy, flawless defensively... again, if you have the money, it's a no brainer.
RD - B. Burns - 93OVR - 470K - 6/10
Burns is roaring back, EA loves him, he's getting more informs now... this guy is going nowhere but up. He got an upgrade recently which makes him qui pricy. The problem is that the other EVO RD are quite good as well. Karlsson, Subban, Doughty, Klingberg and Pietrangelo... they all have a shot at a TOTY, and some of them are cheaper than Burns.
RW - P. Kessel - 93OVR - 550K - 3/10
A week ago, his value was 350K, he was 91OVR and I told you to buy him. I hope you did, because now he's 93OVR and he cost 200K more which makes him less appealing. Kessel won't stop gettting better, but at that price, informs are actually more interesting. Not a great investment.
C - Tyler Seguin - 93OVR - 550K - 3/10
God, was I wrong... I said I didn't see a lot of upside and then BANG, prime time and 150K increase in price. Seguin is a killer card, is decent at the dot... but his "real life" stats are not that groundbreaking, which make his 550K price quite expensive for a player that might live on informs without a shot at a TOTY. But hey, I've been wrong about him before...
RD - P.K. Subban - 93OVR - 400K - 8/10
Subban is a popular player, if you don't act soon, his price will raise significantly. After a slow start, Subban is amongst the best pointer on the blue line. With his popularity, I could see him getting a nod for offensive team of the year. He's not the best defenseman, but his stats are well rounded so he has the potential to be unstoppable. If you have the money, I think it's a safe bet!
C - M. Scheifele - 92OVR - 170K - 4/10
Interesting case here. Sheifele was a point-per-game player before his injury, which is good. But because of his injury, his price dramaticaly dropped. 180K for a 92 EVO card is pretty good. He's suppose to come back in February where he could rack some points but with Wheeler getting a team of the year nod and Ehlers potentially getting a young guns team of the year, I don't see Scheifeler increasing a lot. That being said, he could receive special cards during the playoffs and Prime Time is not out of question, after all, the price is cheap! But you will have to wait a lot.
C - J. Thornton - 92OVR - 240K - 7/10
The Milestone fest is not over for Thorton. He's close to reach four other significant Milstones, two all time leader (assist and points) along with games played and goals scored. It means he could get to 96 sooner than you think. That being said, Thornton is pretty slow, which tend to hit a player's value but I can't see him getting some at 96. There's is definitely money to do here. Thanks to Quinlan74 for the heads up.
C - P. Bergeron - 92OVR - 610K - 6/10
He is a lock for the defensive team of the year. Also, his stats are well distributed which means that his advanced stats are juicy and makes him a well-rounder player. But even more importantly, he's a centerman with a killer faceoff rating. 610K starts to be a lot to pay for an EVO though, but you'll get what your paying for. Not a so good investment to re-sell in a near future, sold investment for your squad in the long run.
RD - D. Doughty - 92OVR - 630K - 5/10
Doughty is having a good season and his card is really good, so it explains the price. That being said, it's pretty expensive. Profit can be made out of this, but it's a lot of money. But if you want to keep him in your line-up, he's a beast, so it won't hurt you to be patient. If what you are looking for is a RD, maybe there is cheaper options with similar upsides on the market, like Subban, Klingberg and Pietrangelo
RD - A. Pietrangelo - 92OVR - 260K - 7/10
Pietrangelo is having a career year. In fact, at the begining of the year, people were even talking about the Norris trophy. Since then, Klingber, Burns and Subban woke up and are having killer seasons as well. They have something else in common with Pietrangelo... they are all RD EVO players. Nevertheless, Pietrangelo is consistant right now and if he's not on the OTOTY, I could easily see him on the DTOTY. His 92 ICE card proves that EA likes him. Only one other defenseman has a 92 ICE card ans this guy is Karlsson, that gives you a good idea. His card is not amazing though with below average accuracy, but he's fast and very capable defensively. 260K right now for him is a good deal, I'm confident he'll get better. The competition on the right side of the blue line is so fierce though, that's what hurt his value a bit.
RW - V. Tarasenko - 92OVR - 275K - 8/10
I love Tarasenko, I'm a huge Blues fan and this card is killer. He's on pace to have the best year of his career and he got a team of the year nod for less than that last year. The Blues have a hard time right now, so his productions is not as great, but it's still there. When Schwartz will be back though... I could see him being snobbed, but I believe. I'm biased though, him being my favourite player.
C - Claude Giroux - 92OVR - 650K - 5/10
Claude is an amazing card. But his price is ridiculous. But like Bergeron, if you want to wait and get a stronge centerman at the dot, you won't be disapointed but you will pay the price. If investing is what you're looking for, it could be an interesting option, I see that card gaining value, but again, it's very expensive.
C - A. Kopitar - 92OVR - 290K - 6/10
Kopitar is having a killer year. This card is a cheaper version of Tavares and could see a similar increase in rate and price. But like Tavares, Kopitar is very slow and because of that, I could see him not gaining that much value. But at 270K, it's definitely worth it, I don't see him losing value anytime soon. But if you only have 350K to invest, Kopitar is not the first card I would work on.
C - J. Eichel - 92OVR - 180K - 9/10
Eichel's card is money, litteraly and figuratively. Such a great card. He's so cheap, it's ridicoulus. Playing on the Sabres roster, his stats are suffering. But it's almost a miracle that he's almost a point-per-game player right now. I can't say I'm 100% sure he'll be on a team of the year roster, but he's young, so we never know. At that price, I don't see why you wouldn't take this tiny chance. Also, he's right handed... you never have enough of those.
C - E. Malkin - 92OVR - 260K - 5/10
Ah, Malkin. I wanted to get him since he's released. But he kind of has a weird season. Right now, he's over a point-per-game and he's usually a lock for offensive team of the year, but I'm still not convinced. But it's Malkin... the guy can get a 5 points game anytime soon. He just got an upgrade and his price actually got lower... Crosby and Kessel have more chance at a TOTY, will they put three Penguins on those team ? We never know, he's still over a point-per-game. It's a gamble, but the price is right. But if what you're looking for is making money out of him, think again, it's unlikely in a near future.
RD - J. Klingberg - 92OVR - 375K - 7/10
He's the best pointer at the blue line, he seems to be a lock for offensive team of the year. 375K, while it's a lot, could give you way more enventually because that card will get better, much better. The thing that hurts his value is that there is so many good RD EVO, but none of them are leading the league in points for defensemen.
LW - J. Benn - 91OVR - 190K - 7/10
Benn is a good card, well-rounded. Also, he received his fair share of love from EA with some team of the week informs here and there. I don't know if he'll receive other informs in the future, but he already received two DTOTW cards so it wouldn't suprise me if he would get on the DTOTY. No guaratee, but at that price, could be interesting to invest.
C - A. Barkov - 91OVR - 130K - 8/10
Barkov is almost a point-per-game, he's only 22 and a really gifted player offensively and defensively. I have a lot of faith in that card for all those reasons. Not so long ago, he was under 100k, his price got higher recently... I'd go for it.
RW - B. Schenn - 91OVR - 125K - 4/10
I'm a Blues fan and I can't still believe his season. Since Schwartz injury, he slowed down. He was comfortably over a point-per-game no so long ago and now, he's dangerously declining. The price is defintely appealing but I see him having a hard second part of the year. He's not the first one I would invest in, but you never know.
C - L. Draisaitl - 91OVR - 100K - 4/10
It all depends on how EA will decide Young Guns Team Of The Year. Two years ago, it was U23. Last year, it was entry-level contract (which explains Panarin). Draisailt is young, but he's at his second professional contract. The Oilers are having a bad time and I'm afraid Draisaitl won't get that much love for the rest of the year and trust me, I wish I am wrong. He's the kind of card that you can hold onto if you already have it, but don't bother buying him if you don't have him.
C - A. Matthews - 91OVR - 225K - 8/10
Matthews can explode at any giving time. He's almost a lock for a team of the year. He could be cheaper I presume, but unless he gets injured again, I see a lot of potential in that card. A little tip for Matthews... monitor his price on a daily basis. His value is so volatile, if you have the capital, you could make a 50K profit here and there once in a while.
LW - T. Hall - 91OVR - 180K - 8/10
What a card! He doesn't feel like a 90OVR at all. He's fast and can shoot from everywhere! Also, he's leading the Devils in points over a point-per-game, on pace to have his best season. Some players are doing better than him but I still believe that if he continue like this, he'll get on a team of the year. At this price, there is not much to lose.
RW - P. Laine - 91OVR - 180K - 6/10
I'm getting insecure about that card. There's too many good players on the Jets roster, they won't be able to all get a spot on a team of the year. He's not having a bad season, but not the one we were expecting and last time I checked, he doesn't play with the best linemates. But he's crazy young on an entry-level contract so he's not a bad bet and like Matthews, he can have a crazy night that will help him a lot. His upsides are bigger than his downside, hold onto this card if you have it and considere acquiring it if you already have all the other cards I suggested.
RW - J. Voracek - 91OVR - 190K - 2/10
ASG MSP 97 Voracek is really crippling EVO Voracek. Voracek is having a wonderful year, but will his EVO reach 97? And if so, that card will still have less swagger than his MSP counter part that has mor synergies. Value is still stable... for now. But if it doesn't drasticaly go down, it won't go up either. Also, I think EA will upgrade Giroux and won't give much love to Voracek.
LD - R. Josi - 90OVR - 150K - 2/10
Who doesn't like Josi? He's a great defenseman. EA always liked Josi. But right now, it's not his best season and I think Subban will get most of the love. I don't see so many infors for him, maybe for defensive team of the year? I don't know. I sold mine recently because I was not confident. There is so much better options out there.
C - W. Karlsson - 90OVR - 160K - 4/10
I still have to pinch myself when I look at the Golden Knights and the standing. Same goes with Karlsson. He's on pace for 72 points, way more than what I would have expecting him to get. But this pace, while being amazing for him and the Knights, is not that amazing compared to other players. Team of the year is not like the all-star games, they don't need one person from every team and if it was the case, it would be Marchessault. I could see him getting some Prime Time here and there, but starting at 90 is not that amazing. He's cheap though, but wouldn't be my priority.
C - N. Backstrom - 90OVR - 200K - 4/10
I love Backstrom, such an underated player. Statisticly though, he's having a sub-par season. I could see him getting a nod for defensive team of the year, but maybe not... 200K is too much to pay for so little "guarantee".
C - D. Larkin - 89OVR - 90K - 8/10
Larkin is having a pretty decent year and if he keeps the pace, I could see him making the YTOTY being only 21 on a entry-level contract. Only six "eligible" forwards are doing better than him, so you never know. At 90K, it's worth the gamble.
LD - S. Gostisbehere - 89OVR - 90K - 9/10
You don't have Ghost? Buy him now. And then, buy him again. And if you can, buy him three times. The guy is second in point-per-game ratio on the blue line and doesn't show any signs of fatigue. If he doesn't slow down significantly, he's a lock for Offensive Team Of The Year. Seriously, get him, at least once, for this price, it really is a joke.
LD - O. Ekman-Larsson - 89OVR - 90K - 0/10
What a sad season for the Coyotes, and that included Ekman-Larsson. He doesn't even crack the top 40 when it comes for point by defensmen. I don't see anything coming for him.
C - S. Monahan - 89OVR - 90K - 7/10
Monahan is the definition of an average card. And by that, I mean he's aswome at nothing and bad at nothing as well. To me, that is very interesting because it means that his stats can't be maxed out easily and therefore, will get better than other players... if he upgrades a lot. Monahan is having a career year, but he's being overshadowed by Gaudreau. Almost a point-per-game, he normally could get a nod on OTOTY and I don't follow the Flames enough to know if he could be considered on a DTOTY. But EA doesn't show a lot of love for Monahan so far, so that worries me a bit. That being said, 90K is a joke, I feel like the upside are way bigger than the downside. Worst case scenario is that you sell him back on the market and might lose maximum 30K. That's a gamble I'm ready to make.
RW - J. Marchessault - 88OVR - 90K - 6/10
Marchessault is definitely an intriguing option. Over a point-per-game, he could be Vegas representative on a team of the year... even if there is not such a thing. The only thing I worry about when it comes to Marchessault is his consistency. Will he be able to keep the pace? I doubt it. But if he does, good things will happend to this card and for 90K, it's not a big gamble.
C - J. Toews - 88OVR - 60K - 3/10
Toews is cheap, but is not having a very convincing season. But Toews being Toews and EA being EA, I could be on the DTOTY and I wouldn't be suprised (but I would be disapointed).
RW - B. Boeser - 88OVR - 280K - 10/10
Boeser is the front runner for the Calder. Of course, there is still a lot of hockey to play, but he seems to be a lock for Young Guns Team Of The Year. He's also a well-rounded card, although not especially strong defensively. Nonetheless, if you get one, I think you'll be very happy.
C - R. Getzlaf - 88OVR - 90K - 4/10
Back from injury, Getzlaf is dominating, over a point-per-game and I don't see him slowing down. His price indicates that I'm not the only one noticing this, pretty expensive for a 87. The only problem, is that he starting from far at 87 and will need a lot of upgrades to be relevant. Because his price was already at 80K for a 87OVR and that he is super slow, I don't think you can make so much profit out of him or you have to wait a very long time to do so. And again, with that speed, I don't see him playing on your squad. He got an upgrade recently and his price didn't really change.
C - M. Marner - 88OVR - 90K - 3/10
Marner doesn't have the best season. Yes, he's under 23 years old AND is still playing on an entry-level contract, which pretty much makes him eligible for a YTOTY stint. But so many youngsters are doing better right now... including his teamates Matthews, who doesn't have a strong enough season to be on OTOTY but is pretty much a lock for YTOTY. Yes, he's cheap, and yes, he could have a killer end of the season, but it's unlikely he'll upgrade that much... and he's only 88.
D - Z. Werenski - 88OVR - 45K - 7/10
A sophomore slump for Werenski? Hmm, maybe a little bit, but he's still the best goal scorer at the blue line! Under 23 years old, he's defintely amongst the top 10. That could not be enough to be on the Young Guns Team Of The Year, but I'm willing to take the bet for only 50K.
C - R. Rakell - 88OVR - 30K - 0/10
Not much to say... good player, but not good enough to get significant upgrades, and he'll need a lof of them to be relevent. 45K might not be a lot, but there is not enough upside to even care.
LD - R. McDonagh - 87OVR - 25K - 1/10
This card is not worth much for a reason. I don't see a lot of upsides. McDonagh is still very capable defensively so I guess he could be on a Defensive Team Of The Year? It's a long shot though.
LW - S. Aho - 87OVR - 16K - 3/10
It's a shame, Aho was having a great season, especially those last few weeks. I has been diagnosed with a concussion AND a lower body injury and even though there is no update, it doesn't look good. The reason he's given a 3 is because he might come back soon enough to rack up some points and that EA would still put him on YTOTY, but it's unlikely. But at this price, if you have any spare change... why not?
LW - J. Drouin - 87OVR - 20K - 0/10
The Habs are having a terrible year and so is Drouin. He won't be good enough to have a stint at Young Guns Team Of The Year, don't waste your money.
C - W. Nylander - 87OVR - 55K - 3/10
I think it won't be a popular opinion because people love Nylander, but I don't think Nylander has a lot of upsides. Sure, he's young and he's having good moments right now, but I doubt he will have so many upgrades and like Getzlaf, he starting from 87 so it will take a lot of upgrades to become worth it.
C - J. Guentzel - 86OVR - 20K - 0/10
Underwhelming season for Guentzel to say the least. Only one upgrade and it was during pre-season if I recall... hey... don't bother.

[BB] Playhouse S4: Friends and Family

Playhouse is a continuous series that may reference past events from previous seasons. Because of this, I highly recommend you go and check out Playhouse S1,Playhouse S2, and or Playhouse S3 if you haven't already before moving on to this season, just so you are informed of certain events or people that may be mentioned by others in their bios or in the season write-up.
Welcome, simulators of the world! Finally, after nearly two months (wow!) of waiting, about a quarter of that time actually being spent writing the season, I can proudly say that Playhouse Season Four is finally a thing! Yayyyy! God I hope I don’t take so long on these in the future.
Anyways, this season is named ‘Friends and Family!’ There are three--yep, count ‘em up, three!--big twists this season. There will be ten new houseguests joined by three players, one from each of the previous seasons in this series, each with the drive and motivation to redeem themselves from their past performance. Along with that, there will be a pair of twins within the house that will be switching places every few days in the house, but playing and acting like one person for the first four weeks of the game. Finally, we managed to find two half-siblings who have never met each other before, nor do they have any clue they exist or are related to each other. Their first time meeting each other will be in this game, where stress and mistrust will be rampant everywhere!
Now, enough of that. I’m sure you’re waiting for the season and write-up, right? Well, here’s the season, and here’s the write-up! Down below, bios as usual if you’re into that kinda stuff. Other than that, fan favorite poll at the very bottom of this post. Hope you guys enjoy this season! I promise season five will not take as long to produce, and I’ll try to get seasons out every two or three weeks from here on out.
“Heyyyy again! That’s right, bitch, Aldo is back again! It’s been nearly a year since I last stepped foot in that house, and so much has changed since then. I’ve managed to get into contact with Luca, being inspired to try and get in a better relationship with him. I’ve moved down to Tucson, Arizona to oversee the management of a new hotel in our hotel chain. Luca is helping me with it. Well, more like I’m training Luca to manage it himself in the near-future, but he’s very helpful to have around as another set of hands and eyes and brain. Enough about that shit, though. It's game time. Now, you all know I could’ve made it farther than eighth place last time. Bitches got the jump on Cupcake Corner, though, and managed to get us out just before we could seize total control over the game. This time, I’m all gameplay. I’m not gonna let my emotions weaken me. I’m gonna be cutthroat, I’m gonna make alliances of three and be flexible about all of them. I’m here to make sure no one else steals my half-million dollar check, and more importantly, my rightful title of Champion. You better not expect any mercy or forgiveness from me, bitch, ‘cuz I’m not gonna hand out any of it this time around. You viewers are going to enjoy watching me this time around. That’s all I gotta say about that. Peace!”
"Sup! I'm Amnisty and I'm a dance coach, just give me some tunes and I'll be happy to shake it! An interesting fact about me is that I changed my first name. You know what it used to be before? Daisy! I hated being named after a flower, it's too girly for me. I changed it to Amnisty as soon as I graduated college. Did you know Amnisty in English means 'freedom'? I didn't either, I just googled 'girl names that mean freedom' and it was on the list! I loved the feeling of being able to make my own choices after being suffocated by my parents with rules, so I went the extra mile to express my freedom from them by changing my name. They actually liked my new name, although they occasionally call me Daisy to get on my nerves, and we still talk basically everyday. After that, I was doing all this craaaaaaaazy stuff: skydiving, swimming with sharks, and hiking inside a volcano, basically anything to give me an adrenaline rush! I loved using the phrase 'YOLO'. I have a bucket list of things I want to do before I turn 40. I'm 25% done right now, and 'making it to the finale of a reality show' was the next thing on the list, right after 'eating a deep-fried tarantula'. Speaking of the show, I've been too busy explaining my life story to explain my strategy going into the house. I'm thinking of subtly inserting myself into the majority alliance and getting close to the leader of it so I can assure my safety, challenges excluded, for most of the game and everything will go smooooooooth...hopefully."
“Good day, everyone watching! My name is Angela Webber, but I’m mostly known as just ‘Gela.’ If you’re one of my students, though, you are not allowed to call me that until you graduate! So, I must admit before proceeding: I have not watched this show before. Not even a single episode. I only know it exists and how it works through my younger sister, who is too young to apply herself. She told me it would be really cool to see me on the show, so who am I to not at least attempt to get on this show for my little sis? Honestly, I’m surprised I ended up getting casted, but I’ll persevere all the same. In my day to day life, I listen to other people and their problems. I deal with conflicting personalities, both at work and in my home life, as I have seven younger siblings that I always had to look after while growing up. At work, I also sort out problems that other students have and find a way to solve those problems in an effective manner. Now, these people aren’t high school kids, but from what my little sister has told me, most of them are typically in their early twenties. They still have problems of their own. And I still have ears to listen with. My plan going into this house is to simply listen and respect everyone, and hope that they give me the same back over time. Perhaps I’ll find someone who knows how to play the game better than I do, too, so that they can give me tips and pointers on how to do things or what to say and when. It's a very complex game, I know that, but I think even an unknowledgable person like me can still go far and potentially win if given the chance. So, that’s me, and I hope you enjoy watching me as I play this game!”
“Hey, I’m Cam. My hobbies include chopping up animals for others to consume, partying with friends, and, as of recently, wedding planning is now a hobby too, apparently! It is for my fiancé, at least. So, I'm playing this game for my future wife and I. We want to start off on the right foot and go on to be a successful family, and while the butchering business is keeping us afloat, it won't get us much farther than that at the rate it's going. So, I'm in this for the money...also, the title of ‘Champion’ sounds pretty badass if you ask me, heh! Wouldn't mind having that as well. My plan to win is to try and stay more relaxed and have another person to anchor myself to. On my own, I can get a little anxious, but if I get someone I trust to talk to and help me out, then I think I have a high chance of making it far and possibly winning the game. So, you’ll all see me once again when I'm in the house. Make sure to have an eye on me, ‘cause I can feel an exciting journey waiting just inside the doors of that house!”
“Fun fact: If you look up the definition of ‘Robbed’ in the dictionary, you’ll find a picture of me in there! Oh, also, because I couldn’t get to say this to them last season, I’m guessing they’ll both be watching this for me to say it to them in some way. So, Jon and Lars: Fuck you! You two screwed me over, but I’m back to prove that it was just me having a bad week. I got unlucky. I can play this game and I will play this game. I’m not really out to win, since as proven last time I played, little things can prevent you from winning the game. However, my goal is to at least make the jury. If I make it to jury, that’s more than enough time to have a chance to actually play the game and have fun with it. This time, I want to meet people more, maybe even get hooked up in a showmance. This time, I want to make sure that the sneaky villains don’t get away with their antics. This time, I will play, and I will slay. You can count on it.”
“Some of you might think I don’t deserve to play this game again, and I would agree with you to some extent. Looking back on it, I played terribly in the first season. All I did was follow around Darryl and play to his will, thinking I could take credit for his gameplay if I got to the end. I was sorely mistaken. So, I don’t think that gameplay is worthy of an all-star return. However, as you can clearly see, this won’t be an all-star season. I’m here for redemption. I want to play my own game this time, as I don’t have a game I can own up to myself. Not yet, at least. As far as I know, Darryl isn’t going to return with me, so I won’t have to worry about slipping into old habits. I can and will make my mark on the game this time and be my own player. I made it to the final three last time and had a chance to make it to the finale, so I think I can easily make my way back there once again. I’m glad to have another shot at it, and I won’t make waste of it, I can promise you all that.”
“Hello. I am Detective MacDonald, but I'll be casually known as Nick in this house. No need for huge amounts of formality going into this house. I've been working as a detective for eight years now, and before that I spent most of my early life learning and working my way up the ladder to becoming a detective. I was inspired to pursue this life back when I was fourteen, and my best friend was murdered in the crossfire of a gang fight. The murderer was never specifically identified, but the gang as a whole was arrested eventually. At the time, however, it heavily motivated me to dedicate my life to seeking out the individuals who commit crimes and ruin lives. I’m here to play this game in order to give me a test of my deductive abilities in a setting where everyone is meant to be deceiving and manipulative. If I can win this game, or at least make it far, while utilizing my observation and analytical skills to figure out who to trust and who to try and evict, then I think that’ll prove as a great mark of me being an excellent detective. I want to practice my skills, so here I am. Hopefully my skills have only sharpened instead of dulled over time.”
“Hey! I’m P.J, and I’m a huge competitor! Just about everything is a competition to me: Eating cereal the fastest, getting the highest amount of likes on a post on social media, lifting more weights than the other people in the gym. You name it, and I’ve probably viewed it as a competition before. My twin brother, Eric, and I both had our fair share of butting heads growing up, I beat him, though. Most of the time. Anyways, going into this game, I’m pumped! It's just one huge competition, start to finish, and I’m ready to go in there for the win. I wanna get that half-million, I wanna win competitions and get people evicted, I wanna be a part of game-changing moves and powerful alliances. I’m here for the whole deal, and I plan on sticking around a while for it. Make no mistake, I’m here to win, and I’ll get that win no matter what it takes. For myself, and for my family.”
“Hi hi hi! You all can call me P! Not peepee or anything gross like that, but just P. The letter. Nothing else. I got teased quite a bit for my nickname, but I don’t care, it’s my nickname and i like it! So, I’ve had an interesting upbringing. My father and I, we basically lived in hotel rooms. When mommy died, we didn’t have huge amounts of money left to really spend on a house anymore, so we just went from hotel to hotel. My father ended up becoming a magician to try and make some money, which only kept our hotel-to-hotel lifestyle going as we went from shows and events all around the country. I can proudly say I have been in all fifty states of the U.S! When I turned eighteen, I went out on my own to try and make it as a stage actress. The results have been...less than stellar, but I’m hoping that things’ll pick up for me soon! I know they’ll have to. I’m playing this game for the money, obviously, but also to hopefully pick up a casting agent so I can get a role on a new play or something. I swear I’m a great actor, and I’ll prove it by acting in this house to fool other people into thinking I’m something I’m not! I’m here to win, and I won’t be afraid to do what has to be done to win it!”
“Hey everyone! My name is Rebecca, and I’m not actually new to this whole thing. Ya see, I’ve played in a different series like this. In fact, if you remember Lars from season two of this series, and how he played twice before in a gameshow called Drama House, I’m from that series too! In fact, I’m the very first winner of it! Although, I don’t know if that counts ‘cause the first season was formatted differently from the rest...but ah, fuck it, a win's a win! I came back a second time in that series and got third place playing the ‘new’ format anyways, so I think I’m expert enough to tackle this challenge. Unlike Lars, I’m gonna keep it chill and relaxed and just have a fun time with peeps. Also unlike Lars, I won’t let anyone know about my previous experiences on Drama House, even if they question me about it. I’m just gonna be a nice, happy-go-lucky gal for the first bit of the game, then I’ll kick it up and have more fun with the competitive side of the game in later weeks. Overall, I’m excited to be playing a game like this again! And with new types of people, too! Hopefully it goes well for me!!”
“My name is Sapphire, and I’m just a more laid-back kind of gal. I don’t get pumped up about things easily. Hell, when I found out I was getting into this house, I didn’t feel too excited. My dad says I’m just apathetic to an extent. I think I’m just underexcited most of the time. Speaking of my dad, we’ve lived with each other for the past twenty-two years. I still live with him, even with my photography work going on, he doesn’t mind my company in the house. He’s a very stoic man, but he’s got a deep layer of emotion hidden underneath that stoicism. Ever since mom left the family via divorce, though, dad’s been stoic just about all the time...anyways, I signed up for this game for the money. Quite honestly, I don’t want to live in my father’s basement the rest of my life. I want to move out and get my own apartment, my own photography studio as well if possible, and to get a nice, stable place set up to work in. I’m not here for a showmance, I’m not here for fame, and I’m not here for the title. I’m just in it for the money. My plan for this game is to just play more under-the-radar. Well, I’m betting most people will call it a floater strategy, but I’ll try to have little bits and pieces of gameplay here and there to make sure I’m not doing absolutely nothing. This game brings a lot of twists as well, so I’m going to try and be flexible with who I stick with and how I handle myself. It may not look like it, but I’m pretty excited for this game to finally begin, and I hope all of you are, too.”
“My name is Weston, I’m twenty-three, I study psychology for a living, and I’m honestly intimidated going into this game. I’m not a hugely social person, but I am a very smart person, so I guess I have that going for me. Oh, uh, I guess I should talk more about my life. I lived in a house with my mother, father, two dogs, and a brother who could never learn to properly clean up his stuff. I swear, it bothered me so much. I still feel like some days he was intentionally being messy just to tick me off about it that much more. I’m not a very social person, as I said, but I am very strict and won’t be afraid to let you know if you’re bothering me and what about you is bothering me. This game is very socially driven, so I do believe I’ll have a hard time getting through it by myself, but fortunately there are heavy amounts of strategy involved as well. I’m planning on using my knowledge from studying psychology to find people I can trust and to stick with them as long as possible. My goal is to make it to the fourth week, just so I can say I ended up lasting that long. Four just seems like a really special number to me. Something about it I really like. Anyways, that’s it for me, really. Don’t have much else to say.”
“Hey, name’s Zeke, and I'm a lifeguard on the California coastline. Living in Cali has allowed me to live a pretty relaxed life. A little boring, sometimes, but at least I can have fun on the beach as a job almost every day. Growing up, it was pretty much just me and my dad since my mother divorced him when I was young, so I've always had my dad to rely on and get to know over the years. He’s a very kind man who deals with a lot of shit with a smile, so I've strived to do the same in my day to day life. Going into this game I want to win. Nothing more and nothing less, winning is my primary goal in this game. However, I'm not going to actively try to piss people off while doing so, and I do heavily value friendships. They’ll just be more of a side task for me going into this whole thing. I think I'll win this game, I got the skills, the looks, and the confidence. Now I just need to get in there and do it.”

“YO! My name! Is! Eastooon! Man, am I pumped to play this game! Haha, I’ve been a fan of shit like this for years now, and I’m glad I finally got into one! Albeit, it is through a twist. Ideally I would’ve loved to play as my own player, but eh, I guess switching out with my twin bro works out just fine, too. I’m glad he’s here. He’s not the one who applied or anything, but it's still cool to see him playing the game. Best part is, we’ll be playing the game together! In a way. Well, we’ll really be playing the game together after like, week four, ‘cause that’s how long we need to last while switching out and keeping the charade that we’re one person. Enough about the twist though, let’s talk about me! So, I’m a very happy-go-lucky kinda guy. I enjoy being out and about, talking to new people, just living life. Oh, and cereal. I also really enjoy cereal. Doesn’t matter what kind, the taste of cereal is just oddly satisfying to me. It’s basically all three meals of my day. My plan going into this game? Well, I’m a sociology student. I know how people operate in group situations. I can use that to assess alliances and different behaviors from person to person depending on who they’re talking to. That’s how I’ll find out who to trust. Oh, and also anyone that just aligns with my brother is automatically an ally of mine. So, I’m super pumped, and I hope you are too, ‘cause I know this is gonna be one crazy season! Wooo!”

The EVO Guide - Jan 26th

Note that I'll try to comment in the thread the best I can but I have a big family weekend coming up so I won't have as much time.
Which EVO card I should acquire? How's that EVO card? Those are questions we see a lot, and I decided to create a little guide that could help you. In this guide, I will attribute a grade on 10. The higher the grade is, better the card is investment wise.
I warn you, I'm pretty hard on cards that are higher than 350K. I can't see those card being good investment. They might me safe investment, but you invest a lot of your capital in one card when you could invest it in 2-3-4 cards with similar upsides.
I evaluate the investment grade on the money you could get by re-selling the card AND on the potential of the card as a usable player on your squade.
I will try to update the list once a week, but I won't update all the EVO. The updates will be written in bold. Because of that, some cards like Ovechkin or Guentzel might have the same description for months... and there is a reason for that.
For the price of the cards, I'm using brianstormed Auction House Prices, a pretty usefull tool if you don't already use it. Take a look at his youtube channel, it's simply the best.
I'm not an expert, I took bad decision in the past when it comes to EVO. You will probably disagree with a lot of things, don't hesitate to comment so we can have a discussion, I will try to help you the best I can. I use those discussions to update the list.
Also, I didn't bother doing the goaltender. The Vezina race for me is not clear and I'm an awful analyst for goaltenders... maybe later... but here's a tip: never spend too much money on a goaltender.
LW - A. Ovechkin - 98OVR - 1M - 3/10
Ovechkin is already 98 of overall with most of his important stats maxed out. If you need his synergies, I could see why you would aquire him, but there is definitely better options out there. His informs are way cheaper and will give you a similar result. That being said, I think he's not done getting informs, which need that even if his overall won't go higher, stats that are not maxed out will continue to upgrade. He might become one of the best, of not the best 99OVR player outside of Broder, Iginla and Jagr and they apparently cost close to 2M. Something to think about.
C - C. McDavid - 96OVR - 1.2M - 0/10
The poster boy will reach 99OVR eventually and he's already a beast of a card. But like Ovi, his auction house price is way too high to get a great return if you sell him back. If what you want is investing on a potential 99OVR player, he could be an option, but there is cheaper options out there, although more risky.
C - N. MacKinnon - 96OVR - 750K - 0/10
Nathan MacKinnon woke up and he's tearing everything up! If he continues like that, the potential of him getting 99OVR is real... but 700K is a lot to invest in one player. Personnaly, I still believe it's still too expensive. MacKinnon is a very good card, but he's also very tiny, I don't see him getting so much more in value. If you love the guy, invest in informs.
C - S. Crosby - 950VR - 950K - 2/10
I could write almost the same thing I wrote for McDavid, the exception being he's a little bit cheaper. Also, because his stats are a little bit more well distributed, he's an all-around better player so he's potentially the best option for an 99OVR outside of Brodeur, Iginla and Jagr. And that's coming from a big hater of the guy. So I guess, if you're rich... it's okay to acquire him but again, very expensive, informs will always be cheaper.
RD - E. Karlsson - 95OVR - 780K - 0/10
Karlsson will definitely be the best defenseman in the game, he's physicality being the only point where he won't be awsome, but still higher than average. His price is too expensive though to make a profit when you re-sell and informs are way cheaper for a similar result.
RW - N. Kucherov - 95OVR - 1M - 0/10
Kucherov already has most of his important stats maxed out. In fact, his 94 ICE card is already overpowered for a fraction of the price. And it goes without saying that 950k is too expensive to make any profit on re-selling the card.
C - S. Stamkos - 95OVR - 800K - 0/10
Even if Stamkos is almost a lock for a team of the year and therefore, will probably be 99OVR, like Kucherov, most of his important stats are maxed out. In fact, his 94 ICE card is already overpowered for a fraction of the price. And opposed to MacKinnon situation, his price is too expensive to make any significant profit on re-selling the card.
RW - P. Kane - 95OVR - 650K - 0/10
I know that I'm repeating myself, but his price is too expensive to make any significant profit on re-selling the card. Informs will do.
LW - J. Gaudreau - 95OVR - 375K - 7/10
Gaudreau is currently a top scorer in the league and going at it recently. A player like Gaudreau can get a Prime Time card every game, you just never know. The reason why he's not a 10/10 is that he can get destroyed quite easily because of his size and because of that, his price will never be that high. Also, his ICE card has most of his important stats maxed up so it's a cheap alternative if all you're looking for is a good winger. But 375K for a 95 EVO? That's quite cheap. He'll get better, just don't expect to make a big profit out of him.
LD - V. Hedman - 94OVR - 600K - 4/10
After a week, Hedman's injury didn't affect his value yet. His price is a lot to pay for an injured player. Hedman is a beast defensively and a very capable offensive defenseman if needed. Even by missing 6 weeks, I'm confident he'll have upgrades and he's already a fantastic player at 94, so if his price goes down to around 500K, I'd jump on him.
C - J. Tavares - 94OVR - 400K - 6/10
Tavares just got an upgrade and his price still dropped. 400K is not that expensive for one of the league leader in points and an almost lock for OTOTY. He's on a good pace and if he continues like this, this card will be very interesting. The reason why this card is so cheap is probably due to Tavares' speed. 89 of speed and acceleration is pretty sad for a high end card. So if he reached a high overall, don't expect his card to gain that much value. The problem is that the card is not that awsome and depending of your team, he will probably sit on your 3rd or 4th line for now, so it's still a lot of money for a bottom six center. Like Geaudreau, don't expect to make a big profit out of him.
LW - B. Marchand - 94OVR - 380K - 9/10
Marchand is a polarizing player, everyone loves him... or loves to hate him. And because of his relatively small size, his price is not expensive. Even if I agree is no Wheeler when it comes to size, he's no Gaudreau either and is a very well-rounded player. After two upgrades, his price started to stabilize, so don't except to make a huge profit out of him, but I could see a possible profit. And if you simply want to have a good player, it works too. He's a well rounded player, a lock on a team of the year... no, really, Marchand is a pretty good card.
RD - J. Klingberg - 94OVR - 500K - 5/10
He's the best pointer at the blue line, he seems to be a lock for offensive team of the year. I told you last week to get him, he was 175K cheaper, so that hurts his rating. I think there is still profit to make enventually because that card will get better. The thing that hurts his value is that there is so many good RD EVO, but none of them are leading the league in points for defensemen.
RW - B. Wheeler - 93OVR - 350K - 10/10
Again, a head scrather here. Like Marchand, jump on the auction house and buy him as soon as possible. He's amongsts the point leaders right now, if he continues like this, I don't see him not getting a team of the year nod. The only explanations I have for his low price is the fact he didn't receive an inform since his ICE card and that his stats don't look that sexy. But Wheeler is a well-rounder player and everytime he'll upgrade, he'll become and even more complete player. Also, he's a huge guy, flawless defensively... again, if you have the money, it's a no brainer.
RD - B. Burns - 93OVR - 550K - 5/10
Burns is roaring back, EA loves him, he's getting more informs now... this guy is going nowhere but up. He got an upgrade recently which makes him qui pricy. The problem is that the other EVO RD are quite good as well. Karlsson, Subban, Doughty, Klingberg and Pietrangelo... they all have a shot at a TOTY, and some of them are cheaper than Burns.
RW - P. Kessel - 93OVR - 425K - 4/10
Kessel's price dropped a bit. He's a popular player but like Marchand, I don't see him gaining that much more value. Kessel won't stop gettting better, but at that price, informs are actually more interesting. But if you're a fan, he'll get better for sure and that price is not that bad.
C - Tyler Seguin - 93OVR - 550K - 3/10
God, was I wrong... I said I didn't see a lot of upside and then BANG, prime time and 150K increase in price. Seguin is a killer card, is decent at the dot... but his "real life" stats are not that groundbreaking, which make his 550K price quite expensive for a player that might live on informs without a shot at a TOTY. But hey, I've been wrong about him before...
C - P. Bergeron - 93OVR - 550K - 6/10
He is a lock for the defensive team of the year. Also, his stats are well distributed which means that his advanced stats are juicy and makes him a well-rounder player. But even more importantly, he's a centerman with a killer faceoff rating. 610K starts to be a lot to pay for an EVO though, but you'll get what your paying for. Not a so good investment to re-sell in a near future, sold investment for your squad in the long run.
C - J. Eichel - 93OVR - 280K - 8/10
Eichel's card is money, litteraly and figuratively. Such a great card. He got an upgrade recently and his price went up, which makes him not as attractive as two weeks ago. He's so cheap, it's ridicoulus. Playing on the Sabres roster, his stats are suffering. But it's almost a miracle that he's a point-per-game player right now. I can't say I'm 100% sure he'll be on a team of the year roster, but he's young, so we never know. At that price, I don't see why you wouldn't take this tiny chance. Also, he's right handed... you never have enough of those.
RD - P.K. Subban - 93OVR - 425K - 7/10
Subban is a popular player, if you don't act soon, his price will raise significantly. After a slow start, Subban is amongst the best pointer on the blue line. With his popularity, I could see him getting a nod for offensive team of the year. He's not the best defenseman, but his stats are well rounded so he has the potential to be unstoppable. If you have the money, I think it's a safe bet!
C - M. Scheifele - 92OVR - 170K - 4/10
Interesting case here. Sheifele was a point-per-game player before his injury, which is good. But because of his injury, his price dramaticaly dropped. 180K for a 92 EVO card is pretty good. He's suppose to come back in February where he could rack some points but with Wheeler getting a team of the year nod and Ehlers potentially getting a young guns team of the year, I don't see Scheifeler increasing a lot. That being said, he could receive special cards during the playoffs and Prime Time is not out of question, after all, the price is cheap! But you will have to wait a lot.
C - J. Thornton - 92OVR - 200K - 5/10
The Milestone fest is not over for Thorton. But is his season is ? After this injury, hopefully, he'll get back on time to get a bunch of Milestone. Personnaly, I would wait his price drop a little but more before acquiring him, but I still believe it's a good investment. Keep in mind that Thornton is pretty slow, which tend to hit a player's value but I can't see him getting some at 96.
RD - D. Doughty - 92OVR - 570K - 5/10
Doughty is having a good season and his card is really good, so it explains the price. That being said, it's pretty expensive. Profit can be made out of this, but it's a lot of money. But if you want to keep him in your line-up, he's a beast, so it won't hurt you to be patient. If what you are looking for is a RD, maybe there is cheaper options with similar upsides on the market, like Subban, Klingberg and Pietrangelo
RD - A. Pietrangelo - 92OVR - 240K - 7/10
Pietrangelo is having a career year. In fact, at the begining of the year, people were even talking about the Norris trophy. Since then, Klingber, Burns and Subban woke up and are having killer seasons as well. They have something else in common with Pietrangelo... they are all RD EVO players. Nevertheless, Pietrangelo is consistant right now and if he's not on the OTOTY, I could easily see him on the DTOTY. His 92 ICE card proves that EA likes him. Only one other defenseman has a 92 ICE card ans this guy is Karlsson, that gives you a good idea. His card is not amazing though with below average accuracy, but he's fast and very capable defensively. 240K right now for him is a good deal, I'm confident he'll get better. The competition on the right side of the blue line is so fierce though, that's what hurt his value a bit.
RW - V. Tarasenko - 92OVR - 260K - 8/10
I love Tarasenko, I'm a huge Blues fan and this card is killer. He's on pace to have the best year of his career and he got a team of the year nod for less than that last year. The Blues have a hard time right now, so his productions is not as great, but it's still there. Schwartz is back though... I could see him being snobbed, but I believe. I'm biased though, him being my favourite player.
C - Claude Giroux - 92OVR - 600K - 5/10
Claude is an amazing card. But his price is expensive. But like Bergeron, if you want to wait and get a stronge centerman at the dot, you won't be disapointed but you will pay the price. If investing is what you're looking for, it could be an interesting option, I see that card gaining value, but again, it's very expensive.
C - A. Kopitar - 92OVR - 290K - 6/10
Kopitar is having a killer year. This card is a cheaper version of Tavares and could see a similar increase in rate and price. But like Tavares, Kopitar is very slow and because of that, I could see him not gaining that much value. But at 290K, it's definitely worth it, I don't see him losing value anytime soon. But if you only have 350K to invest, Kopitar is not the first card I would work on.
C - E. Malkin - 92OVR - 240K - 5/10
Ah, Malkin. I wanted to get him since he's released. But he kind of has a weird season. Right now, he's over a point-per-game and he's usually a lock for offensive team of the year, but I'm still not convinced. But it's Malkin... the guy can get a 5 points game anytime soon. He just got an upgrade and his price actually got lower... Crosby and Kessel have more chance at a TOTY, will they put three Penguins on those team ? We never know, he's still over a point-per-game. It's a gamble, but the price is right. But if what you're looking for is making money out of him, think again, it's unlikely in a near future.
G - A. Vasilevskiy - 92OVR - 280K - 7/10
So TSN did a survey with all the NHL coaches out there. 26 of them voted for Vasilevskiy for the best goaltender in the league. Of course, it's worth what it's worth, but it's a fun indactor. He's also the goaltender who has the most wins and playing for Tampa Bay, let's simply say he'll probably keep the pace. From the goaltender who played more than 30 games, he also has the best save percentage. I don't usually rate goaltender, but I'll buy this one and I think you also should. Why only 7/10 then ? Well, goaltender price tend to not get that high and all goaltenders basically suck so... All I'm saying is that if there is ONE EVO goaltender you should invest in, it's him.
C - A. Matthews - 92OVR - 280K - 8/10
Matthews can explode at any giving time. He's almost a lock for a team of the year. He could be cheaper I presume, but unless he gets injured again, I see a lot of potential in that card. A little tip for Matthews... monitor his price on a daily basis. His value is so volatile, if you have the capital, you could make a 50K profit here and there once in a while.
LW - J. Benn - 92OVR - 220K - 7/10
Benn is a good card, well-rounded. Also, he received his fair share of love from EA with some team of the week informs here and there. I don't know if he'll receive other informs in the future, but he already received two DTOTW cards so it wouldn't suprise me if he would get on the DTOTY. No guaratee, but at that price, could be interesting to invest.
C - A. Barkov - 91OVR - 100K - 8/10
Barkov is almost a point-per-game, he's only 22 and a really gifted player offensively and defensively. I have a lot of faith in that card for all those reasons. Not so long ago, he was under 100k, his price got higher recently... I'd go for it.
RW - B. Schenn - 91OVR - 140K - 4/10
I'm a Blues fan and I can't still believe his season. Since Schwartz injury, he slowed down. He was comfortably over a point-per-game no so long ago and now, he's dangerously declining. The price is defintely appealing but I see him having a hard second part of the year. He's not the first one I would invest in, but you never know.
C - L. Draisaitl - 91OVR - 90K - 2/10
It all depends on how EA will decide Young Guns Team Of The Year. Two years ago, it was U23. Last year, it was entry-level contract (which explains Panarin). Draisailt is young, but he's at his second professional contract. The Oilers are having a bad time and I'm afraid Draisaitl won't get that much love for the rest of the year and trust me, I wish I am wrong. He's the kind of card that you can hold onto if you already have it, but don't bother buying him if you don't have him. I personnaly got rid of him two weeks ago, I don't think he'll qualify for YTOTY.
LW - A. Panarin - 91OVR - 280K - 2/10
Panarin sure is a fun card. But he's having a sub-par season right now and I don't see him getting much more upgrades. Can he get to 95? Maybe. But I wouldn't bet on more than that. At that price, if you have the money, I would invest somewhere else.
LW - T. Hall - 91OVR - 180K - 8/10
What a card! He doesn't feel like a 90OVR at all. He's fast and can shoot from everywhere! Also, he's leading the Devils in points over a point-per-game, on pace to have his best season. Some players are doing better than him but I still believe that if he continue like this, he'll get on a team of the year. At this price, there is not much to lose.
RW - P. Laine - 91OVR - 170K - 6/10
I'm getting insecure about that card. There's too many good players on the Jets roster, they won't be able to all get a spot on a team of the year. He's not having a bad season, but not the one we were expecting and last time I checked, he doesn't play with the best linemates. But he's crazy young on an entry-level contract so he's not a bad bet and like Matthews, he can have a crazy night that will help him a lot. His upsides are bigger than his downside, hold onto this card if you have it and considere acquiring it if you already have all the other cards I suggested.
RW - J. Voracek - 91OVR - 190K - 2/10
ASG MSP 97 Voracek is really crippling EVO Voracek. Voracek is having a wonderful year, but will his EVO reach 97? And if so, that card will still have less swagger than his MSP counter part that has mor synergies. Value is still stable... for now. But if it doesn't drasticaly go down, it won't go up either. Also, I think EA will upgrade Giroux and won't give much love to Voracek.
LD - R. Josi - 90OVR - 150K - 2/10
Who doesn't like Josi? He's a great defenseman. EA always liked Josi. But right now, it's not his best season and I think Subban will get most of the love. I don't see so many infors for him, maybe for defensive team of the year? I don't know. I sold mine recently because I was not confident. There is so much better options out there.
C - W. Karlsson - 90OVR - 160K - 4/10
I still have to pinch myself when I look at the Golden Knights and the standing. Same goes with Karlsson. He's on pace for 72 points, way more than what I would have expecting him to get. But this pace, while being amazing for him and the Knights, is not that amazing compared to other players. Team of the year is not like the all-star games, they don't need one person from every team and if it was the case, it would be Marchessault. I could see him getting some Prime Time here and there, but starting at 90 is not that amazing. He's cheap though, but wouldn't be my priority.
C - E. Kuznetsov - 90OVR - 130k - 2/10
His base card did amazing thing for me, I really like the guy. That being said, a bit like Radulov, he's having a good season but outshadow by teamates. He doesn't even crack the top 30 in scoring and being small also hurt his value. I don't see a lot of upside.
LD - O. Ekman-Larsson - 90OVR - 80K - 0/10
What a sad season for the Coyotes, and that included Ekman-Larsson. He doesn't even crack the top 40 when it comes for point by defensmen. I don't see anything coming for him. Even worst, he just got a TOTW nod, which makes him uneligible for a CTOTY.
C - N. Backstrom - 90OVR - 200K - 4/10
I love Backstrom, such an underated player. Statisticly though, he's having a sub-par season. I could see him getting a nod for defensive team of the year, but maybe not... 200K is too much to pay for so little "guarantee".
C - D. Larkin - 89OVR - 90K - 8/10
Larkin is having a pretty decent year and if he keeps the pace, I could see him making the YTOTY being only 21 on a entry-level contract. Only six "eligible" forwards are doing better than him, so you never know. At 90K, it's worth the gamble.
RW - A. Radulov - 89OVR - 85K - 4/10
Radulov is a great player and a very decent card. He's currently in the top 30 in scoring which is good, but I think he will be outshadow by Seguin and Benn. EA didn't give him a lot of love so far. Not a great investment, go with informs if you like him.
C - S. Monahan - 90OVR - 55K - 6/10
Monahan is the definition of an average card. And by that, I mean he's aswome at nothing and bad at nothing as well. To me, that is very interesting because it means that his stats can't be maxed out easily and therefore, will get better than other players... if he upgrades a lot. Monahan is having a career year, but he's being overshadowed by Gaudreau. Almost a point-per-game, he normally could get a nod on OTOTY and I don't follow the Flames enough to know if he could be considered on a DTOTY. But EA doesn't show a lot of love for Monahan so far, so that worries me a bit. That being said, 55K is a joke, I feel like the upside are way bigger than the downside. Worst case scenario is that you sell him back on the market and might lose maximum 30K. That's a gamble I'm ready to make.
LD - S. Gostisbehere - 89OVR - 75K - 6/10
People could get mad because I strongly suggest to acquire him... I still believe something good could happend and to the price you paid, nothing is that wrong. I just hope you onlu got one of him. Gostisbehere distanced himself from Klingberg, Burns, Carlsson and Subban in term of point. If he doesn't get better soon, he could miss OTOTY. The season is still young though and Ghost is cheap! Let's cross our fingers together.
LD - M. Sergachev - 89OVR - 150K - 9/10
Finally, another interesting LD EVO ! Sure, Sergachev's second part of the season is harder than the first, he was a healthy scrath not so long ago, but he's a lock for YTOTY. Just pray for two or three other informs and that guy will be a solid card when TOTY cards are release. And at this price... I don't know what you're waiting for.
RW - B. Boeser - 89OVR - 260K - 8/10
Boeser is the front runner for a Calder nomination. Of course, there is still a lot of hockey to play, but he seems to be a lock for Young Guns Team Of The Year. He's also a well-rounded card, although not especially strong defensively. Nonetheless, if you get one, I think you'll be very happy. The only downside is that his price is expensive and if his TOTY card only give him +5, he will have to get some other informs to be really interesting.
C - M. Marner - 88OVR - 110K - 3/10
Marner doesn't have the best season. Yes, he's under 23 years old AND is still playing on an entry-level contract, which pretty much makes him eligible for a YTOTY stint. But so many youngsters are doing better right now... including his teamates Matthews, who doesn't have a strong enough season to be on OTOTY but is pretty much a lock for YTOTY. Yes, he's cheap, and yes, he could have a killer end of season, but it's unlikely he'll upgrade that much... and he's only 89.
RW - J. Marchessault - 88OVR - 80K - 6/10
Marchessault is definitely an intriguing option. Over a point-per-game, he could be Vegas representative on a team of the year... even if there is not such a thing. The only thing I worry about when it comes to Marchessault is his consistency. Will he be able to keep the pace? I doubt it. But if he does, good things will happend to this card and for 90K, it's not a big gamble.
C - J. Toews - 88OVR - 65K - 3/10
Toews is cheap, but is not having a very convincing season. But Toews being Toews and EA being EA, I could be on the DTOTY and I wouldn't be suprised (but I would be disapointed).
C - R. Getzlaf - 88OVR - 80K - 4/10
Back from injury, Getzlaf is dominating, over a point-per-game and I don't see him slowing down. His price indicates that I'm not the only one noticing this, pretty expensive for a 87. The only problem, is that he starting from far at 87 and will need a lot of upgrades to be relevant. Because his price was already at 80K for a 87OVR and that he is super slow, I don't think you can make so much profit out of him or you have to wait a very long time to do so. And again, with that speed, I don't see him playing on your squad. He got an upgrade recently and his price didn't really change.
D - Z. Werenski - 88OVR - 40K - 6/10
A sophomore slump for Werenski? Hmm, maybe a little bit, but he's still the best goal scorer at the blue line! Under 23 years old, he's defintely amongst the top 10. That could not be enough to be on the Young Guns Team Of The Year, but I'm willing to take the bet for only 40K.
C - R. Rakell - 88OVR - 30K - 0/10
Not much to say... good player, but not good enough to get significant upgrades, and he'll need a lot of them to be relevent. 45K might not be a lot, but there is not enough upside to even care.
C - W. Nylander - 88OVR - 60K - 6/10
Nylander is at 88, which is pretty low. But if another Leafs get on the YTOTY and I have to chose between Marner and Nylander, I say Nylander makes the cut. He's cheaper as well.
LD - R. McDonagh - 87OVR - 25K - 1/10
This card is not worth much for a reason. I don't see a lot of upsides. McDonagh is still very capable defensively so I guess he could be on a Defensive Team Of The Year? It's a long shot though.
LW - S. Aho - 87OVR - 20K - 7/10
News says Aho is back skating. He's not getting back right away, but maybe after the All-Star break? One can dream... but if he does come back and he picks where he left off, he'll be on the YTOTY for sure. But we never know for players coming back from injuries... but 20K is a small price to gamble on such a good player.
LW - J. Drouin - 87OVR - 20K - 0/10
The Habs are having a terrible year and so is Drouin. He won't be good enough to have a stint at Young Guns Team Of The Year, don't waste your money.
C - J. Guentzel - 86OVR - 20K - 0/10
Underwhelming season for Guentzel to say the least. Only one upgrade and it was during pre-season if I recall... hey... don't bother.
