PbNation Official Poll: What Professional team made the best off season moves?

There have been lots of off season moves in the Professional brackets in the NPPL, Millennium and PSP so far this off season with the first event still some time off. Which Pro team made the best moves?

As always, if you have a pick not listed in the poll, don't vote. Just post it up and if enough people agree, we'll add it.

Vote and discuss.

I'm pretty excited to see what Houston Heat can do this year. Then again, Damage is looking pretty impressive as well.

I think Avalanche's move was the best/smartest in the long run (which is what counts IMHO), but Explicit takes first for quickest/best improvement and then it's Houston Heat

honestly!..... Damage made a good move picking up jrab and keeping bains. Houston Heat will be a team to watch and it will be exciting to see them develop in the next year. But as far as the biggest and best moves Explicit by far. They have picked them selves an all star lineup and I bet we will see them picking up some event wins this year.

I think Dynasty's pick-up is going slightly unnoticed.
Wake adds one more piece Dynasty needs to stay competitive.

I mean damage did great by getting another great player, but houston heat is a roster full of great players and is by landslide made the biggest offseasons moves. and congrats to the few teams that didn't lose any players

Avalanche for sure. Not only is it a smart move for them long term, it benefits local talent that doesn't have "connections" and will help anyone looking to move up to pro eventually. EVERY PRO TEAM NEEDS TO DO THIS. it really helps strengthen tournament paintball and gives players a greater chance to achieve what they want.

The 187 crew definitely deserve the upgrade to pro. Going pro is a big step up and they deserve credit for it. Houston Heat did the same and picked up some of the biggest names in the game. It's definitely a tough call between the two.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
