I will be running a 2018 playoff simulation using @naples39 2018 ROM.  Each day I hope to post a round with video highlights, until we reveal who will be the 2018 simulated champion!

This is really cool and graphically beautiful.

I love the curtains being pulled back.

BUT,

I just looked at Naples rom Version 1.31 in EARE

AND

Naples rom has all the sim data equal for all teams so the actual simulation is equivalent to flipping a coin.

Everybody has a 4 for offense and defense.
All PP and PK are Average and Home/Away is set to Average for all teams.

I would like to see this run with the sim data accurate from the current season.

It'll still use the players, though, won't it?

It just won't give customized situational bonuses. PIT won't have a super-buffed powerplay, but they'll still have great players on it (who are the players who create the good PP in the first place)

Not that it wouldn't be cool to include appropriate home/away/pp/pk values

You guys will see this before it hits any social media, but your 2018 Stanley Cup Champions (per NHL'94 simulation) is:  The Las Vegas Golden Knights!  They lose their first 3 games to the Columbus Blue Jackets, only to rally back 4 straight to win in 7!

The Conn Smythe Trophy goes to Marc-Andre Fleury who posted a .942 save percentage in the playoffs, 4 shutouts, and a 1.6GAA!  Again, all results, boxscores, and stats can be found here: http://www.nhl94online.com/html/playoffs.php?lg=54

Also, the '94 SIM had VGK winning their first game against LA 1-0.  Actual score of game 01?  1-0.

Also predicted Pittsburgh winning 4-0.  Actual score?  7-0.

Time to place some wagers!

Great stuff Raph, you did some great work with graphics and highlights. Thanks for putting this together.

You really need to dump the robo-voice and get some NHL94 buds recording the commentary of the finals series.

Thanks man!  I love the robo-voice, something about it made me laugh and because it was a computer simulation, seemed appropriate.  However, I agree it'd be great to have '94 buds doing the commentary....would require a bit more logistics work though.  

I took it as a learning experience in order to try and flip a big Stanley Cup highlight into a '94 video using the audio from the game quickly and maybe have it go viral!
