Since it was cheaper to pick a team than to buy a single pack at the LCS, I opted for the former. Since my one pack actually contained a Senators hit, I went away from Ottawa, and looked instead to gamble on some guys from my PCs and grabbed Detroit and Carolina. The former would give me the chance at my first Daniel Alfredsson Red Wings cards and some Petr Mrazeks for the 2/14 collection, and the latter would give me a chance at some Ryan Murphy for my Rangers alumni collection.
I did get some nice cards for 2 of those guys, and 2 out of 3 ain't bad!
Detroit, however, was much better for me in terms of PC building.
3 hits, with 1 being a direct addition to my PC, the other being a general addition. 3 parallels numbered to 50 or less. And two base cards for my PCs. That's probably better than I'd do on a pair of packs at the LCS.
