  1. Plabax found the (laggy) PlayStation version of the game included on what NHL 2006? He enjoyed that and then found the forum I believe. As for the theory of 'slacking' causing dropouts. There have been a few cases of that namely this Ba55ist character. When i joined, I got kicked out of a league for 'slacking.' I probably didn't read the rules, but still expulsion didn't endear me to the community. I don't think I got a warning either. If you look back at couple years ago's classic results: there were to and C players! I think classic is the best way to get people ns of Binterested. Even after playing classic, i didn't know there were other leagues and honestly if classic ran perpetually I'd probably just keep playing classic and skip the draft leagues. A draft league adds even more time to what is already a pretty decent time commitment as well as adding a learning curve.
  2. Obviously. The 5 hole slapper is so lame. Does it give you joy watching that weak dribble through the goalies legs? Agree 1000%.
  3. So I said I wasn't sure if he made a mistake; I said I would do it differently. He's in a bad position IMO that is unlikely to get much better. With all of his forwards on the same side of the goal, and the defense well positioned, skating across the ice inside the blue line isn't going to open up any passing lanes. It is simply an attempt to try to maintain control and get into a better position. The play that I really am pointing out is an aggressive (and obvious to a good player) play at the boards to create the break. My point in talking about skating across was to ask, "Is this just bad luck or is it preventable?" or even, "is it a something that creates an advantage? " So that is the situation that I retreat over the blue line and exit my own zone because when you are in that position, not much good happens. I'm really the only one who does this, so I understand that it isn't a mainstream viewpoint. It can also end the same way that it did as well, giving up a break.
  4. thank you. I think it is extremely hard to do. alot of the game comes from knowing how to put yourself in position. Depch gets extremely snake bit with both the goalie falling over especially the second time (the other was a good hard play.) Then Gilmour plays like he is cold as ice! One of the easiest pointers I see is at like 27:40; the puck is firmly inside the blue line which will pull the d men into the offensive zone, and then the loose puck headed towards the boards. Did Depch make a mistake coming across? Not sure. I personally would have skated backwards but I'm in the minority with that one. Plabax clearly jumps on the opportunity to create a pretty much insta break. Similarly the last Gilmour one timer at 28:06 is setup by the pass before the one timer. Anyway, I love watching these. Thanks

  6. Zep trades Bondra for Turgeon
  7. Kelly Miller please autodraft from here on out.
  8. lumme
  9. not bothered, I enjoy having the highest win pct.
  10. Do the tecmo leagues draft? Likely not. The most popular league is classic because it is the most accessible, and provides nostalgia. While Yeats' Second Coming was posted as a somewhat preposterous joke, the message and meaning remain relevant. I hate complaining about slacking except when it was Hokee because he was so consistently amusing with his slacking rants. It was from my point of view his MO.
  11. The A guys will win. And what the hell is this website with my exis?
  12. Yea some could be wristers too. So some of these shots are silly hard. I try to copy them all the time with little success against the computer. against a human they often get easier...
  13. I agree. Those last 5 teams are really quite horrid, and might well provide a good challenge. KingRaph is quite good with NJ.
  14. So this appears to be a compliment, however comes out of left field. The complaints come mostly after a thorough beating.
  15. What the hell is this strategy? Thanks
