If you do not pay for stuff in HUT, this one can take a little while but is not too bad. This method stacks with the Wheelin' And Dealin' achievement and assumes that you are not spending actual money. You can monitor your progress on this achievement in the achievements section in your profile (progress is not displayed in your menu's achievement section, for some reason).

The quickest sets to complete are the Bronze ones as the packs/cards needed to complete them are generally the cheapest. What I did was repeatedly buy Bronze packs (10 and 20 Bronze packs are essentially the same cost-wise and in contents, so which you purchase do not matter) with HUT coins that I mostly earned from my daily bonus (you earn increasing amounts of coins each consecutive day, measured in 24-hour periods, that you enter HUT, up to 1,250 coins per day). I sold off the cards I did not need (Healing/Contract cards) and traded the rest into sets in the trading post. You will get Bronze collectibles for completing Coach/Jersey/Logo sets and a common Silver player for each Player set you complete. Trade in the Bronze collectibles you receive in the “Quick Sell Sets” section - this also counts as completing a set for each one you trade in and earns you some extra coins to further speed things up. The silver players you earn from trading in Bronze players can be traded in in the Silver sets section. Make sure that you use the “Silver to Gold Rare player trade in” and “Bronze to Gold player trade in” once each in the process of going for this achievement (unlike other sets, these can only be completed once but are quicker to complete than the normal player sets).

Keep an eye on the main menu of NHL 17. In the lower-right hand corner, you will occasionally see up to 3 tiles that say “Earn HUT reward.” Clicking on them plays an ad and rewards you with 200 coins per ad (don't collect the reward until watching all 3 to speed things up).

Some other tips related to speeding this achievement up:

- Sell the Bronze contracts you get with a starting price of 50 and a buy now price of 100. Sell the Bronze healing items you get with a starting price of 100 and a buy now price of 150.
- NEVER Quick Sell items. You will only get 1/5th to half of what the card is worth. If you sell everything in the auction house, you will very likely earn the Wheelin' And Dealin' achievement in the process of earning this one (or, at worst, you will knock a huge chunk of its requirement off).
