    Hey guys. So I planned on running this league and had a nice window of time open to set it up. It's a cool idea, but complicated to setup and required time. Unfortunately, I ran out of time. I tried to get help, but wasn't able to do so in order to get things set up. Recently, Coach reached out to me offering to help, but I failed to clear any time to even call Coach over the phone and set things up with him. He's since then started up his cool little Retro league, so I'm going to put this league on hold until I get my more free time for NHL94. As it stands, I had a scare by a doctor got me all paranoid I might have cancer, and I ended up having to set up all these doctor visits, and get a colonoscopy done twice in one week (getting put under twice in one week). Everything got taken care of and it turns out I'm in the clear, but that WHOLE situation just messed me up and took up a lot of my free time, which I often used for NHL94! Not to mention losing just several days of prep for the procedures followed by being all foggy for a day after. Anyhow, long story short, I've been playing catch up on EVERYTHING in my life right now, and being real, won't be setting this league up any time soon. Sorry to stroke you strokes. I feel most bad about not doing a draft video for a second time on Flatcrusher! Once I get my routine back, and find a nice window to set things up properly, I'll re-post and start up a league. I might work on the setup slowly in the background in the meantime. Running a draft for a different type of league (Plablegs, GDL, anything like that, setting up one of Raph's pre-done google docs), that's easy for me. You guys get together on Discord, or on the forum, figure out when/what you'd want to do, and I'd help out, no problem. Brute

    League is closed. Thanks, I think we have a good group. Please pick teams so i can send to @chaos and we can get going. Summary of rom and the rom below. NHL'67.bin Draft Order #1 Mike Gartner (Chicago BlackHawks) #2 Coach (Montreal Canadiens) #3 Aqua (Detroit Red Wings) #4 Atomic (Toronto Maple Leafs) #5 Tex (New York Rangers) #6 Ice (Boston Bruins) We will use the 1967 rom this season. The last season of the Original 6 and playing a brutal 70 game schedule 14 games against each team. The BlackHawks dominated the 1967 Regular Season and are the best team in the rom. Chicago had 4 of the 6 First Team All-Stars. Stan Mikita, Bobby Hull, Kenny Wharram, and Pierre Pilote. Stan Mikita won the Hart Trophy and led the league with 97 points. Bobby Hull scored 52 goals for his third 50 goal season and only the fifth ever. Glenn Hall spent the first half of the season painting his BARN in Alberta, but came back for the second half and was selected as the Second Team All-Star Goalie. Harry Howell won the Norris Trophy and said he was glad he did, because he predicted a young rookie for the Bruins would dominate that trophy for years to come, That kid won the Calder for Rookie of the Year. You guessed it Bobby Orr. The Canadiens finished second and were coming off back to back Cup wins in '65 and '66. Jean Beliveau missed a large portion of the season The Leafs had a rocky regular season, but still managed to finish third. The Rangers made the playoffs for the first time since 1962, led by Ed Giacomin in net, Harry Howell, and Don Marshall who would have won the Selke if they had it back then. The Red Wings missed the Playoffs despite a potent offense led by Gordie Howe, Norm Ullman, and Alex Delvecchio, but got poor goaltending and weak defensive play. The Bruins finished last after a strong start to the season but the pieces of the future championships were coming together with Orr, Cheevers, McKenzie, and Bucyk. The Playoffs in Original 6 Times pitted the #1 team against the #3 and #2 vs #4 The Over the Hill Gang #3 Maple Leafs upset the #1 Blackhawks 4 games to 2 in the Semi-Finals and the #2 Canadiens swept the #4 Rangers. In the Finals the Leafs won in 6 games led by Dave Keon and Terry Sawchuk. Keon won the Conn Smythe Trophy. As far as the rom goes Chicago is easily the best team. Montreal, Toronto, New York, and Detroit are fairly even. Boston is a step below. All the players are modeled after a 94 player though I have made minor changes mostly to weight, handedness, and aggression. Advantages are set to how teams played in 1967. For team overall I added up the starting 6 and divided by 6. Team (Overall) PP/PK Home/Away Chicago (86) STR/AVG STR/STR Montreal (72) STR/STR AVG/AVG Toronto (72) Weak/Weak STR/Weak New York (72) AVG/STR Weak/AVG Detroit (68) AVG/AVG AVG/Brutal Boston (63) Weak/Weak Weak/Weak

    ALSO, as a fair warning to all my fellow buds out here, if you are over 40, approaching 40, get checked out. They used to recommend 50, but now are moving it to 45. You'd be STUNNED at the stories I heard after I told mine around work/friends/circles, etc. And, my gastrologist specialist I went to said 100% I'd have developed cancer if I hadn't gone in when I did. Like, I'm never sick, don't have grey hair, all my hair, decent shape, sitting with good genes, no allergies, no history of nothing, and I'd have been in a bad way fast if I hadn't been listening to the radio and Eddy O was crying, dealing with his battle with cancer and talked about getting yourself checked out. Scary stuff, not knowing what you can't see. Don't have anything without your health for real.

    Too far for me from Pennsylvania to Vancouver, and I'm working 80 hours a week, right now, but I'll be there in spirit. Can't wait to see all of the content from KO94III.

    If you're not familiar with the WHA, Wikipedia does a far better job of explaining than I ever could. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Hockey_Association Long story short, if you're in need of your Whalers or Nords fix this is where it all began. Rosters have all major players included but lines are built similar to Deadline ROMs with playoff rosters and/or late-season trades in mind. However, if you feel the need to see Alton White in a NY Raiders sweater or Michel Rouleau as a Blazer they're all there and just a line edit away... Player photos are updated with some really, REALLY big hair. A lot of the graphics and player rating for later seasons are already done so hope to keep these coming relatively regularly. Comments, suggestions and (constructive) criticism always welcomed. 1973 WHA.bin

    The Howe family defended their AVCO World Trophy in '75 as the league welcomed the Indianapolis Racers and Phoenix Roadrunners to the fold. The Jersey Knights headed west to become the San Diego Mariners while the Los Angeles Sharks became the Michigan Stags - only to relocate to Baltimore midseason as the Blades. Bobby Hull scored 77 goals and captured the Gary L. Davidson Award as the league's most valuable player. San Diego's Andre Lacroix was the league's leading scorer with 147 points. Anders Hedberg was the rookie of the year and led the Swedish invasion while Ron Grahame took top goaltender honors. BONUS #1- if you're looking to relive the Stags' 3 months of glory they have been included as a team featuring only players who suited up for Michigan. BONUS #2 - following the success of the 1972 Summit Series another exhibition was held in 1974 under the same format featuring players from the WHA facing off against the Soviets. Leading up to and following the games against the Soviets Team Canada played a series of exhibitions against the Czechoslovak, Finnish and Swedish national teams as well as a WCHL all-star squad. All teams are playable. The ratings for these teams are HIGHLY subjective - there is simply no way to accurately quantify the teams with such a small number of games. I am well aware that, as an example, Marc Tardif is not a 48-rated player. I built the ratings to try and catch a snapshot of how the players performed over the course of the Series, not as a judgment of their overall skill levels. Feel free to change as you see fit. Ideas, suggestions, corrections always welcomed. 1975 WHA.bin On a personal note, I was fortunate enough to catch some of the Olympics in Vancouver in 2010. After a very long day my wife and I decided to pop into our hotel bar for a couple of cold Kokanees. We pulled up a couple of barstools next to an older gentleman who introduced himself as Gary. He was laughing about how he had picked the wrong time to come into the city for a dentist appointment. We chatted for quite a while, only later that evening did we discover that Gary was the younger brother of HOFer Darryl Sittler. While he never made it to the NHL he played a handful of games in the WHA. Working on this project I was sad to learn that Gary passed away several years ago. RIP Gary, thanks for the beers...

    The 1973-74 season saw another marquee name join the new league as Gordie Howe was coaxed out of retirement to play alongside his sons Mark and Marty in Houston. The bet paid off for the Aeros as the Howes brought home the AVCO World Trophy. ROM linked above. BONUS - The New York Golden Blades moved to New Jersey mid-season and became the Knights. I've included the Golden Blades as a separate team at the end of the ROM. Only players that suited up in the purple and gold are included. Question - during play testing I noticed the Chicago @ Vancouver matchup features a whole lot of yellow jerseys. Out of curiosity, anyone out there know what they did when they faced off in real life? Knowing the WHA, they probably had both teams wear yellow pants... 1974 WHA.bin

    C/B fix is so that in WBF rom you can't C/B check with the little guys. All of my roms have it and all WBF leagues use it.

    I've got a long breakdown this time but Montreal is very worthy of it as they have a lot of worthwhile players and a detailed game plan. I've already got Buffalo lined up and will release that in a few days. I hope to record the rest of the division this week and release that soon as well. The scripts are already set and just need recording. Feel free to provide any feedback!

    I liked it! I give it an A, for a first go round. It is the perfect format for summer. I also salute J&J for the idea and for running things! I do think 8 games per team instead of 10 is a good idea. I love the double elimination idea, except feel it is ill suited for a summer league because now the playoffs will drag on too long. For the same reason -- timeliness! -- I actually think the playoffs should be only top 8 teams, again, to speed up completion time. My preference would to have this league wrap up by Sept 1 through whatever means necessary. In the future, anyway...

    An idea i had was to airbnb a large house, then we can set up some consoles in the living room. Here are a couple that night work for that https://www.booking.com/hotel/ca/bryson-home.html http://www.besthomeinn.ca/index.php/zh/112-best-home-inn-richmond

    I’d love to see nhl 94 on the Switch!!! And be able to play people online. I have never tried via the PC but I would love to play against online opponents!!! Nintendo , Sega and EA make it happen. Also, Madden 92/93, Live 95, Sports Talk Baseball would be fantastic.
