  1. You already have my thoughts... But seeing as I’m not the one doing the work, who gives a sh*t what I think. Lol My food for thought was/is that If I’m a Oilers fan, for example, I’d be annoyed if I can’t play as Messier as he helped them win five Cups. As a Rangers fan, I wouldn’t play this without Mess as he is a legend for the franchise. Same mindset applies to several players. You’re doing the “best of” for each team so how do you omit some of the best players that define those franchise’s histories? Just saying... Doesn’t mean I’m right. Go with your instincts.
  2. Thanks, I appreciate the kind words. Make sure you have the latest version which was posted last night. It has some good changes/updates. Anywho... I haven't noticed a huge difference in goalies based on ratings unless the goalie is real bad with agility. Having a very agile goalie helps with lateral movement. Having one with better rebound control helps with the puck "sticky" factor. But, I can't say that when I play exis, I notice a huge difference between a goalie rated 90 vs one rated 65. Maybe it's because I play manual and not automatic? However, if I sim a game, I do see some
  3. http://www.trucolor.net/portfolio/national-hockey-league-franchise-colors-1917-1918-through-present/ You wont be able to match all of the RGB colors to be exact but you can get very close using this site.
  4. I would also credit anyone whose rom you work off of unless you plan to do all of the ratings, hex edits, patches, artwork, etc. yourself. Remember, those people gave you a basis to work off of for your rom. As much as I have re-done art and ratings, and tweaked hex codes, I still give credit to Slapshot and wboy, for their 30 and 32 team roms, as I used much of what they created. We all borrow from someone else. But yes, credit those who helped you in other ways too as it is the respectful thing to do. Good call!
  5. Something to keep in mind, if you're doing a true "best of" rom, you should consider having certain players on multiple teams or, you are short-changing those teams. For example... Gretzky - Equally important on EDM and LA (even though his legacy years are in EDM). Chelios - was awesome in MTL and CHI Bobby Hull - HoF for CHI but he put WPG on the map. Hasek - Known for his years in BUF but won a Cup in DET and gave OTT it's best year ever. Belfour - Known for his lights out years in CHI but won a Cup in DAL Sawchuk - Won Cups in DET and TOR (won the last ever Cup in T
  6. Based on your spreadsheet (and you already have my notes on line combos and whatnot), here are some key players that I see as "missing." Again, all food for thought... ANA - Chris Pronger and Scott Neidermayer are the two best Dmen in the franchise's history. The latter has his number retired by the team. Francois Beauchemin would be another good add. I'd add all three over Manson, Tverdovsky and Havelid. BOS - Add Dumant and Bauer so you have the Kraut Line of the late 30s/early 40s. Much better players and more important to the organization then Krecji and O'Reilly. BUF -
  7. Oh shoot... my bad... I thought those embedded images were from your rom. Lol. Sorry for the confusion. I should have read more carefully. Your spreadsheet does have several of the “missing” players that I mentioned but is also missing several as well. But, in the end, it’s your rom so definitely “do you” in terms of what you’d like to have in or out of the rom. Thank you for the kind shout out! I look forward to your finished product! Keep up the good work!
  8. First off, nice job! Sounds like a cool rom. Thanks for doing it! Some food for thought... ANA: Rucchin centered Kariya and Selanne. That was a dominant line in the late 90s. CHI: Stan Mikita and Bobby Hull didn't play on the same line in their years together in Chicago. In fact, they both played on two different famous lines (Million Dollar Line and Scooter Line). The MPH line (which was Pit Martin, Jim Pappin and Dennis Hull) was also a famous line for the team. In fact, all three were selected as starters in the 1974 all-star game. Funny enough, coaches wanted Dennis' br
  9. Howdy! A friend of mine noticed a couple of "errors" with stick hand (L vs R) so I updated the rom accordingly (it's been re-posted in the OP). Upon doing research for another rom that I am working on, I noticed some things that I didn't have "correct", with certain players, so I made a few updates. It was based on some scouting reports and whatnot. So, things that I didn't catch the last time around so I figured, "since I am fixing a couple of errors, why not..." As to what they are, I'll never tell. But, you can always download it and see if you notice anything. This was de
  10. In case anyone is interested in playing as the Seattle Kraken, I have added them to my 2020 Playoff rom (NHL94 2020 vPO). If not, well, that's fine too. You can play as them in an exi as well as the playoff mode.
  11. Hi everyone! As a nice, little surprise, I have added the Seattle Kraken to my 2020 Playoff rom (NHL94 2020 vPO). There is no longer a NHL Prospects team. The Kraken players are based on the players from the 1917-1919 Seattle Metropolitans. 5 of them (Frank Foyston, Harry Holmes, Lester Patrick, Jack Walker and Gordie Roberts) are in the hockey hall of fame. The Mets were the first US-based team to win a Stanley Cup which they did in 1917. Around that time, Foyston was considered one, if not the, top skaters in hockey. Some of the players got some games in the NHL once that league s
  12. It appears that the team will return to the logo that they used in 1997. The logo is very similar to what was also used in 1994. The difference is it said "Ottawa Senators" where the black arrowheads later appeared in 97 (within the gold circle). https://news.sportslogos.net/2020/07/17/leaked-ottawa-senators-new-2020-21-logo/ I hope they return to this jersey set up as well. Also, very similar to what they used in 1994. There was just no white strip in the black jersey in 94.
  13. No worries... I replied.
  14. RELEASE THE KRAKEN!!! lol
  15. I just threw this together but unfortunately, don't have time right now to "clean it up" the way I'd like to...I'm sure others can do better but for starters...
  16. You mean for the team that has no players, no draftees and won't start play until 2021-22?
  17. Every powerplay can start with...
  18. Yup...it's official! The 32nd NHL team will be the Seattle Kraken. https://www.nhl.com/news/seattle-kraken-nickname-for-nhl-expansion-team/c-317588092 Can't say that I'm a fan of the nickname but I guess it could have been worse. I love how they (the team officials) talk about Seattle and its maritime history... they do realize the Kraken isn't a real thing, right? LOL
  19. So, turns out, it may not have even mattered. I just played a playoff game that went to OT and it defaulted a 5 minute period (not 99). So, I tested it out to see what would happen if no one scored after 5 minutes and it simply goes to another 5 min OT period. So, all for not, I guess. I don't even recall the last time I played "playoffs" let alone having it go to double OT. So, my bad. Well, seeing any most folks don't like a tie score endings anyway, at least the 99 min OT will serve a purpose for exis or whatnot.
  20. Hi All! There was one thing that I forgot to put into this rom which was 99 minute OT. I have re-posted the rom to include it so as to avoid ties in the playoffs. As this is a "playoff" themed rom, it made sense to add it into the file. Sorry for the oversight. Updated version is in the OP. That was the only change that I made to the file. Thanks for the "likes" and any positive feedback so far! Cheers! -Sauce
  21. I threw together a short summary (per) of the 26 teams, in this rom. So, here we go... Anaheim – No superstars on this team. Not a lot of offense but, they have a stingy defense and a solid PK. Stephan Lebeau was a disappointment acquisition. He was on a strong decline from the prior year as he went from 31 goals/80 points in 1992-93 to 15 goals/26 points in 1993-94. Two years later, he was out of the NHL and playing in the Swiss League. Bob Corkum has a good year and will provide some offense. Just don't expect much. Boston – 50 goals in 49 games… the line on Cam Neely and his
  22. Fun 1993-94 season factoid... Cam Neely only played in 49 games before suffering a season-ending injury. At the time of injury, he had 50 goals!!! He actually scored #50 in game #44. Oh, what could have been!
  23. Nice feedback! I appreciate it. Believe it or not, Oates lone weakness is his skating (well, and he was soft like melted butter). It hurt him when he was drafted. Lebeau also wasn’t a great speedster and was a bit overrated (stats don’t lie). Hence, why he couldn’t stick in MTL or ANA. Ended up in the Swiss League. He’s really known for one big year and some so-so years. For the Ducks, in 93-94, Bob Corkum is their “gun” (if you will) as he had a good year. Yates and Valk weren’t bad that year, either. I’m surprised that you didn’t catch what I did to Felix Potvin. I lowered his agi
