Default NHL14 DMen - Cost Analysis

Here are the new numbers for the templates this year. The cap numbers are quite different from last year and the cost per points are mostly the same but have been increased in cost in a number of spots.

Every stat starts at 65 for every template. There's a cap which changes from template to template. Also of course the cost of the points is different between them. I set this up like last time so the "cost increment" is the number of points you can put into that attribute before the cost goes up 10 points (ie a cost of 2 translates into a skill costing 10 for the first 2 points, then 20 for the next 2 etc). Some of the attributes are just brutal from a cost standpoint so choose wisely grasshopper. Just remember, red/black=bad, green=good, infinity symbol means you can put as many points as you like into that attribute, it'll never cost more than 10. The cap number is listed beside each cost number for easy reference.




Edit: Most of you know this but keep in mind that you can't use boosts to go over the caps.

Edit2: Corrected Def Dman's cap strength from 83 to 93.

Thanks for posting this Soul, I did a bit of experimenting myself before I bought all of the boosts. I wanted to buy ones that were the most expensive. My shot sucks but I somehow ended up with an 84 overall, last year they didn't give me that with a legend 3 card!

I'm rollin' a defensive dman right now but after looking at this, other than a couple higher caps, it looks like a two way would be better on the whole.

So soul it is best to buy/earn the black/red boasts and invest points in the green ones right (not to over simplify)?

Peace

Yeah Rip. Boost the expensive ones, buy the cheap ones (with your xp), as a general rule. It's also better to boost something you want to put a lot of points in vs something you only want a few. But assuming you're deciding between 2 attributes you want to put as many points in as possibly, boost the more expensive one.

Only 83 str for a Def Dman? Really EA? I think it should at least be 88 or 90, considering the checking and aggression can be so high.
