    Your '94 Community Career - Cool Things / Misconceptions

    Joined years ago, but have never been part of a league yet. Had only a few games against members on here. Played against Wittgenstein in several games on Clockwise's NHL 91 rom of NHL '94 and shut him out several times. Beat Clockwise in one game and lost to him in another in same rom. Clockwise is the only forum member thus far to score more than 1 goal against me in a game. Other good players will be able to do the same if they played against me, but I can compete. Was going to release an updated version of NHL '94 in the past, only to lose all my hard work when my laptop crashed.

    San Jose Sharks

    LD: Sandis Ozolinsh RD: Doug Wilson LW: Perry Berezan C: Pat Falloon RW: Kelly Kisio G: Arturs Irbe Subs: John Carter, Johan Garpenlov, Dean Evason. If Berezan goes down with an injury, you can get some goals out of Evason.
  4. I hope you enjoy it. Let us know how it is, both the game itself and the '94 mode.

    NHL 94 Forum NHL 14 EASHL Team

    Agreed 100%. I'd be fine with the original 8-bit graphics and all, as long as we could have FOUR lines instead of three, a full NHL regular season, trading & free agency, and fake shots and shot-blocking. Basically, I want NHL '95 with four lines, except it's an NHL '94 version of NHL '95. 8-bit graphics or newer graphics, this was a huge missed opportunity on EA's part.

    Also, the fact that their '94 mode has no online play is a massive oversight. They have God-knows-how-many online players on Xbox Live, they make many games with the mindset of making them for online play, and then commit this gaffe. It's no wonder EA has become a laughable company over the past 10+ years.

    NHL 94 Forum NHL 14 EASHL Team

    I was thinking about buying NHL 14, but I quickly changed my mind on that. I'm not thrilled with the so-called NHL '94 mode. Looks more like NHL Hitz to me, and they just slapped in the '94 ice color and called it '94 mode. Sadly, I think EA screwed up big-time with the '94 mode. This would have been a perfect opportunity for them to capture the attention of a huge market of hockey fans and NHL '94 fans by having a true '94 mode with features such as shot-blocking, fake shots, and a season mode. It could have been their way of saying, "This is our way of apologizing for NHL 95. Forgive us!" To those of you who do have the game, I hope you're enjoying it.

    You do realize he posted his topic in the appropriate section, right? Post-98 and other hockey titles.

    I was going to post that same video, but Smoz beat me to it. Now we just need the NHL 94 forums to present us with an opportunity to display the cricket video!

    Ronning was always a class act. And this is awesome!

    What Nhl Jerseys Do You Have?

    1. Black #39 Buffalo Sabres jersey of Dominik Hasek 2. Mid-to-late 1990s Anaheim Mighty Ducks practice jersey (it was green with purple shoulders) That's it. I never cared for collecting/wearing jerseys of favorite players or anything.

    New bug? Player magically appearing

    I was playing NHL 94 on my Genesis last night and saw something happen that I think may have never happened in my game before. I was playing as the Hartford Whalers while going against the Chicago Blackhawks and I made a save with Sean Burke. Just as I was sending my pass down to center ice for the breakaway, I noticed that one of my defensemen magically appeared near Burke! I quickly took the shot down at the other end with Sanderson, paused the game and went into replay mode. While viewing the instant replay, I noticed that Adam Burt was NOWHERE to be found on the ice. None of my players were in the penalty box at all, as there was no penalty being served. The replay confirms that when I made the save with Burke and prepared to set my breakout pass, Adam Burt just appeared near my net on the left side of my TV screen. Moving the target around with the replay paused at different times, I confirmed that Burt was nowhere to be found on the ice and then just magically appeared near the net. This ever happen to any of you? Do any of you have any idea why this happened? I noticed that this particular bug was not on the list of Game Bugs at's main page, so I thought I'd post about it. And no, there was no star where the missing player just suddenly appeared, as I was controlling Burke when I made the save and Sanderson when he received the pass.

    Goalie Puck Control

    I know this is an old topic, but puck control pertains to the goalie's ability to not let the puck get through when it hits him. Shoot slap shots at the five-holes of the CPU goalies with the lowest puck-control ratings, and you'll see that you score more goals through their five-hole. Do the same thing against goalies with 99 puck control, and you'll see a lot fewer five-hole goals. The goalies with the best puck control will give up fewer rebounds and fewer five-hole goals. As for goalie passing, I have a feeling that defensive awareness and/or offensive awareness have something to do with how well they pass the puck. Or maybe it's their speed rating? I never bothered to figure out what it was because just about any goalie can pass well in the game.

    Goaltender Defensive Awareness

    If anything, I think a goalie's defensive awareness pertains to his reaction time and positioning. For example, if you allow the CPU to shoot wide open one-timers, your CPU goalie will make saves more often with the likes of Belfour than he would with the likes of Hebert. In other words, the goalies with the best defensive awareness ratings are probably the ones that are the best at tracking the puck in NHL '94. If your goalie has a low defensive awareness rating, then your need for manual goalie is likely much greater. If the guy shooting the one-timer is Brett Hull, then it probably doesn't make much difference who your goalie is. A guy with 99 shot power is going to blast the puck pust just about any goalie. But if you have one of those "oh crap!" moments where you failed to get manual control for the one-timer, I found that the likes of Belfour make more saves as a CPU goalie than other goalies.

    What are your NHL94 player stats?

    Rather than saying stick right/left or glove right/left, I'll just say high/low. Position - G Number - 39 Glove hand - Left Stick hand - Right Weight - 212 Speed: 4 Agility: 5 Off Awareness: 6 (play puck and pass like Barrasso) Def Awareness: 6 (my awareness/positioning leads to saves with the chest) Puck Control: 6 (no 5-hole goals and excellent rebound control) Stick low: 6 (unbeatable on low shots) Stick high: 4 (not bad, but if you time your shot right...) Glove low: 6 (forget about low shots) Glove high: 5 (you'll need a darn good shot) My style of goaltending can best be described as this: stop the puck. I can do the Hasek-like acrobatics when necessary, but those are usually for scrambles in front of the net. For the most part, I play a positional game and play like Brodeur or Belfour in style. The Fuhr-like kick saves or Hasek-like sprawling are only used when necessary. My game is generally about strong positioning, lateral movement and giving the shooter very little to shoot at. The closer one comes to my crease, the more Hasek-like it can be as pucks bounce around and whatnot. Although I do make saves while on my knees, I do not slide around on my knees like Marc-Andre Fleury does in the butterfly. I more or less get back up or make slight sliding movements to make the quick second save and then get back up again. For example, think of Brodeur/Belfour/Bryzgalov.
