    Prior to the officially sanctioned IIHF event, the "World Juniors" existed as invitational events for 3 years. I've taken Slapshot's excellent rom and used it as a base for the 1974-76 tournaments. I've been bloodying my nose with Tile Molester for a couple months now and have officially calculated that it takes 147.38 hours and a 3-time read through of the entire forum to feel like you sorta know what you're doing! Center ice still eludes me... I'm guessing that the logos weren't too elaborate for a low-profile tournament that started in 1970s Russia so am sticking with the plain ol' faceoff dot for now. Sorry if these are not the most glamorous years but I figured I might as well start at the beginning. Thanks again to everyone who has helped get me through some of the tricky parts and offered advice and feedback.

    I got the Gens and the NES HD versions from these guys yesterday. The Gens one looks very good and sounds very good, not quite as good as a CRT, but very close. The lag however is noticeable and unacceptable to me. Keep your CRT and Original equipment!

    1974 - Leningrad The first U20 championship was hosted in Leningrad, USSR and was simply known as "International Youth Hockey Tournament". The Soviets cruised through the field en route to the gold medal including a 9-0 drubbing of the Canadian bronze medalists while Finland took home the silver. To be fair, the Russian Machine was not facing the cream of the Canadian crop but the Peterborough Petes - led by Hall of Fame coach Roger Neilson. Not a whole lot of household names participated - most notably Doug Jarvis and Doug Halward for the Petes (ahem Canadians), Paul Holmgren for the US and Thomas Gradin for the Swedes. 1974 WJC - Leningrad.bin

    @CoachMac Yes, keep the cable. As far as the Sony PVMs, just be careful buying one on eBay. They are heavy and if they aren't packed right, it's not making it to you in one piece. There are state public auctions that go on that usually have these monitors that go for cheap. It's all done online, you bid like eBay and if you win you go pick it up. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Sony-BVM-1315-Monitor-/252883026915 - I found this one on eBay. The BVM monitors are the next step up from PVM. This one is only 13" and it's located in Sparks, NV. No speakers though, you'd have to use some cheap computer speakers. You can use this adapter to try it out with just the Genesis AV cables. - https://www.amazon.com/Sienoc-Male-Female-Adapter-Connector/dp/B00KX17NGU/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_23_bs_t_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=YVBQ4Y5AHEQRRG6G0BWN . See if he would let you test it out. If you like it, I'd offer the guy $150 and see if he takes it. He wouldn't have to pay eBay fees if he sold it to you locally. That's not a bad deal for that monitor. You will need a SCART to BNC cable to use your RGB cable for any of these monitors. https://www.ebay.com/i/202264834157?chn=ps&dispItem=1

    #1 Lag. #2 It just doesn't look quite right. I can't explain it but almost like people who get botox. Ya the wrinkles are gone, but it doesn't look right. Not the TV I had it set to Game Mode and I tried it at a Retro game store in town where the guy helped me. Again just my opinion, both are decent products, but i would be disappointed to play Live on either of these.
