Houston Heat 2014 pickups

What do you guys think about Houston Heats new pickups for the 2014 season?

Thomas Taylor - XSV
Tim Montressor - Impact
Greg Siewers - Impact
Ryan Moorhead - Impact
Keith DeVit - Vicious

Will these players give Houston Heat a advantage or will them not preform as well as they have done their first 2 years?

My opinion is that they do have some amazing 1's on the team right now, some of the best in the game, but I think they might should have brought in some more strength to their back line.

I really like theses moves. It is the best situation they could take since the Russians left.

Reasons
1. Most of these guys live just a few blocks away from each other.
2. They have all played together in the past. (leads to quick jelling as a team)
3. All these guys are versatile anyone can play any spot.
4. Everyone is very experienced and will learn off one another.
5. They are very focused on winning

Im all for Heat this year. Glad to see most of the Philly all-americans back together

You have some fairly good points there, but I still think that they might struggle a little bit in the first event or two. Playing as the 3 when you normally play as a 1 is a very very hard thing to do. I think they will just find oit who plays the best as a 2/3 amd let them do that job, for most part.

I would call Tim a pretty solid back. This will also give Nick a chance to prove himself as one of the better/best back players in the league IMO!

Indeed, but I just can't see Houston Heat running Nicolas to many point. I don't know why, but that is my gutfeeling is telling me this. We'll just have to wait and see. Do not get me wrong, I love how Slowiak is playing, and how he makes the sickest moves.

I believe things will go very well for us this year. We had a great first practice as a team and have another in 3 weeks. Bring on Dallas.

Good to hear that you guys feel good about it. I have no doubt that Heat will be doing good this year, I'm just having some trouble making uo my mind how I feel about the new team.
I wish the team the best of luck and hope you take this year by storm!

Yeah come on Tim is one of the best in the game, numbers don't lie. I agree it will take some time for this line to really come together but man when they do I have a really hard time not picturing them on the podium.

I also predict Ryan Moorhead elevates his game to beast mode and wrecks day in day out.

This is the current roster. Chad "yaya" Bouchez is stepping back to take a manager role for the team.

I think they're great pickups. Looking forward to watching!
