    NHL 2019 “Way Too Early Edition” ROM

    GM Ken Holland just announced that Zetterberg is retiring (basically, extended LTIR until that contracts expires ala Hossa) due to back injury issues. Sad to see him go as he was a great player!

    LOL ... was just a matter of when... I was planning on holding off doing any roster updates for a while (was thinking of holding off until opening night) but, this one was too good to delay. Please find re-posted, up top, the NHL94 2019 Preseason Edition rom with Erik Karlsson on the Sharks. I also took advantage of the timing to update some (confirmed) new jersey numbers for various players.

    Faceoffs

    I don't think there is one. I usually just mash the B button and hold the down arrow. I'm usually above 50% but it seems very random as to who wins vs exact timing of the puck drop. There have been times where I forgot to hit the B button or was off on my timing and still won. Maybe certain attributes effect success? I haven't tested or seen anything mentioning it.

    NHL 2019 “Way Too Early Edition” ROM

    OK...I have re-posted the NHL94 2019 Preseason Edition ROM in the original post of this thread. Only a quarter or less of the players were effected by the glitch. I have fixed the jersey numbers on several teams (based on jersey numbers confirmed by teams) so that they match my previous released version. I also fixed several players where the shooting hand was switched. I used the official team sites to confirm them. Thanks @petraiwe for catching the error and letting me know! If anyone sees any other mistakes/errors, please let me know. I also made sure to put Adam McQuaid on the Rangers roster as he was traded to the them today. Cheers!

    Nice job!!! Looking forward to playing some games with it. One of the best parts of your ROM... Kathryn Tappen!

    Hi @petraiwe ... thanks for the kind words! That's funny that you say bring up that mistake... that happened with another team but I caught it before posting the updated rom. Something funky must be going on... I will review each team, tonight, and re-post with the corrections. Thanks for catching/reporting it... I'll have fixed version posted sometime tonight. Cheers! UPDATE: The jersey number/hand issue has effected certain teams/certain players. I will be correcting it tonight and re-posting. My theory is that when I exported the roster into a CSV file (via roster extraction tool), to edit, and imported it back, it may have created some errors. Lesson learned.

    NHL 2019 “Way Too Early Edition” ROM

    Hey @bbb777 and/or anyone else interested... ...rather then delete my previous version, I uploaded an updated version of my 2019 ROM (in case anyone preferred the older version). It is posted within my original post, up top in this thread, and titled "NHL94 2019 Preseason Edition". This updated version includes the Skinner trade to Buffalo, August/September free agent signings and last night's Max Pacioretty trade to Vegas (as he signed an extension, with them, this afternoon). I've done some player edits and line combo changes here and there (nothing major). I also updated a ton of jersey numbers. And, I finally got around to renaming Toronto's arena. As Henrik Zetterberg has not yet announced if he will play this season, he is still in Detroit's starting line-up. Injured players like Cory Schneider, Ryan Kesler and Shea Weber are still on their team's starting line-ups (more fun to have them in, IMO). Suspended players like Nate Schmidt (suspended 20 games for violation of league performance enhancing drug program) are still active as well. For @Kidlavington I included Quinn Hughes on the Canucks roster. I didn't put him in the starting line-up as I don't know who you want him paired with or what PP unit you would want him on. So, I'll leave that up to you as you can make the change prior to any game start or in NOSE. Cheers!

    Cool... I'll get ya a copy tonight (when I'm home from work). Plus, I'm still sorta waiting to see if the trade officially goes through as it is rumored to be "conditioned" on Pacioretty signing an extension with Vegas. It will probably happen but just in case...

    NHL 2019 “Way Too Early Edition” ROM

    Thanks @bbb777 I'm continuously tweaking away at the opening night roster rom. I just updated it to have Max Pacioretty on Vegas as he was traded, last night, for Tomas Tatar, Nick Suzuki and a draft pick. If anyone wants an updated copy now, just let me know. If not...October. Unfortunately, you can't use the PP units at even strength unless, the PP is the same as one of your standard 3 lines. I wish there could be a 4th line as well but it doesn't appear doable at this time. I pretty sure the CPU runs their Checking line against you if the game is close and in the 3rd period.

    Thanks @Kidlavington Quinn Hughes committed to another year at U of Michigan for 2018-19, so I didn’t include him. However, if you like, I have been updating the roster, since originally posting it, and could PM you a version with Hughes. Let me know if you want a “Hughes included” version. This version (if you want it) will have Skinner on the Sabres and some recent signings and updates.

    Dilly dilly! Lol Even as a Rangers fan, without my usual excitement, I’m still itching for a new nhl season!
  12. It's awesome that they are bringing them back as I always thought they were underrated jerseys. Not sold on the gold vs yellow. Looks too much like what Vegas has done and I feel like the yellow pops more. I guess I'm too much of a purest. I heard rumor (keyword - "rumor") that the Hurricanes may do something to honor the Whalers history in the near future. I'm not sure if the can use the W logo but even if they used their own and swapped out red/black with green/blue/white for a game, that would be great! More teams need to do this... was so happy when the Flames brought back the '89 era jerseys (as 3rds) and that the Pens returned to their classic black/yellow.

    Thanks! Of course, I release it and a day later, Carolina trades Jeff Skinner to Buffalo. Lol I made the update on my own version. I’m not going to do a re-release right now as it’s been rumored (for quite some time) that MTL is trying to trade Pacioretty, OTT is trying to trade Karlsson and CAR may trade Justin Faulk. Plus, who knows what FAs may still sign somewhere prior to training camp.
  14. Hi Everyone! So August, to many NHL fans, is the most boring month of the year. Not much, if anything happens for the sport. The NHL world is still waiting for OTT to finally trade Erik Karlsson as rumored for months and months. Who knows when that will finally happen. That said, in honor of a boring month of low activity, I am releasing an NHL19 “Way Too Early Edition” ROM. Much of the details of my 2018 ROM carries over to this version (see "Another NHL 2018 ROM" for additional details of that ROM). The rosters, as far as big trades and signings, over the last couple of months, are up to date as of today. Tavares on TOR, Kovalchuk on LA, O’Reilly (STL), etc. If I missed any notable ones, feel free to let me know. Many promising prospects, projected as having a legit chance of making their team’s opening night roster, are in the game. They include guys like Rasmus Dahlin (BUF), Casey Mittelstadt (BUF), Andrei Svechnikov (CAR), Filip Zadina (DET), Michael Rasmusson (DET), Kailer Yamamoto (EDM), Evan Bouchard (EDM), Dylan Sikura (CHI), Miro Heiskanen (DAL), Robert Thomas (STL), Ander Bjork (BOS), Gabriel Vilardi (LA), Filip Chytil (NYR), Lias Andersson (NYR), Elias Pettersson (VAN) and many more. I have also added several recent European signings (Par Lindholm-TOR, Jan Kovar-NYI & Bogdan Kiselevich-FLA to name a few). I did get some insight on them via scouting reports. The different lines and D pairings, playable per team, are early projections. In some cases, like Toronto, it is what the coach (Babcock) stated he’d like to try at the beginning. In other cases, it is a best guess subject to changes. The NLC lines and related pics are those I felt fit best. Some player portraits have been updated. A lot of the new jersey numbers are confirmed. Teams like ARZ, BUF, CGY, CAR, DAL, MIN, PHL, PIT, STL and TOR have confirmed them on their websites. In other cases, if a new number has not been confirmed, I used a number the player wore on another team or in the AHL/JRs./College. Just as long as it was not retired by their new team. Jack Eichel and Jack Roslovic have confirmed they are switching to new numbers this year so they are updated. Some teams, this year, are trying forwards at new positions in camp. Perfect example, CAR has confirmed they will try Sebastian Aho at center on the top line. He played some, at that position, at the end of the last season. Lastly, I have created a new Prospects Team (as the 32nd team). These are the early projected stars of next year’s draft. It’s forgone that Jack Hughes is going number one overall. The kid is awesome! It will be a draft filled with promising centers/wings like Alex Turcotte, Alex Newhook, Kappo Kakko, Dylan Cozens and Peyton Krebs to name a few. I did my best to get them correct (or close to) in attributes by using several scouting reports as I did for the 2018 Prospects. Some could be slightly off as I am still learning more about them. If so, I'll update them at a later time (as well as the prospects listed if some rise or fall in value). As always, feedback is welcome. Think of it as a pre-season edition as I will release a final start-of-the-season version in October (much like Skip/Slapshot & Naples39 do). I’ll likely, in October, do another 3v3 version to accompany it. For now, enjoy! NHL94 2019 Way Too Early Edition.zip Posted 8/1/18 NHL94 2019 Preseason Edition.zip Posted 9/14/18
