Now recently, I've started picking up old Genesis NHL games and s**t on emulators, just because, well, the NHLPA 93 and NHL 94 are too great to be ignored. I also started to reflect on some of the good times I had with this community over the years, and there's always been something that needed to be said.
When I first signed up on this forum, I was like, 7.
The background into my retro NHL affinity starts at childhood, both my older brothers are 90's kids to the bone, so there was an NES, SNES and N64 laying around my house as a kid, whenever I couldn't play NHL 2000-2005 on PC due to the 2000's concept of the "Family Computer" and my laptop couldn't handle those games, I would go downstairs and play NHL 95, (Yeah, boo.) One day I was at a pawn shop, I was searching feverously for my favourite bucket, the Jagr/Selanne JOFA helmets, I heard that they were being discontinued and I loved the look and feel of them, I was a gear hipster, I didn't wear all Bauer s**t. I rocked JOFA protective gear, (Elbow Pads, Gloves, Chest Protector) Graf skates, CCM Supra pants, and I was the last on my team to use both Aluminum and Wood sticks, took me till 2005 to use one piece composite,
But anyway, lo and behold amongst the video game section that I stumbled across in my race to buy as many JOFA helmets as possible, I found NHL 94 for the SNES. Being a young hockey enthusiast, (Broadcasting is my aspiration now, I have a show on CBC Radio coming up this playoffs.) I mentioned to my dad, "Hey, that's from the year the Canucks went to the Stanley Cup Finals last!" I proceeded to list every player from Kirk McLean and Pavel Bure to Shawn Antoski and Tom Fergus. I got the game, and when I got back home, (helmetless, I ended up finding enough JOFA helmets to last me until 2010) I plopped in the cart and I heard what had already been established as the rallying cry of my childhood through early 2000's NHL's, E! A! SPORTS! It's in the game! followed by
-ShHHHHK, DUN, DUN, DUN, CRRACK- Dalalalala DUN DUN DUN DUN DA, DALALA! That day alone I played through a 7 game playoff with the Canucks. The names such as Linden, Ronning and Adams incited nostalgia between my parents, if the Canucks don't make it to the finals that year, my parents don't get married, I'm never born. Some Back to the Future s**t there. My brothers were fine, they had different parents, as a result, both of them are half brothers to me.
But I was hooked, the retro organ music, the players, the Nordiques, North Stars, Jets and Whalers gave me a gigantic pre-pubescent history boner. Shattering glass with a Mike Peluso backhander, making sprawling saves with Hasek. Truly I was skating with the greats.
One day I noticed on the back of the NHL 2005 PC case it said "www.NHL2005.com" and I proceeded to look up "www.NHL2005.com" "www.NHL2004.com" so on until I got to "www,NHL94.com" when for the first time since NHL 2004, I got a search result on google. I found out that there was a SEGA Genesis version, I discovered what emulation was, I read about Evan's crazy glitch exploits, read through the cardset and at a certain point in time, I joined the forum.
The rest is history, but so is all that I just mentioned. I'm 17 now, I should be doing a poster on Louis Riel, and planning a Lord of the Flies essay, but it's 3:55AM overlooking the Pacific Ocean, and I figure I'm not sleeping anytime soon.
Also, that means some of you guys got beat by a child who had been playing Ninety-Flow for under a year.
Read some of my old posts, they're grammatical shitshows.
Jesus, We've all been here a while huh?
This reminds me of that swedish dudes "Real NHL 94" ROM on SNES.

When you see things like 15 guests in certain amount of time i think, what if all these guests were posting members, i remember this place was ALIVE. Who remembers egg? or BSdaemon or hell even Dr P1zza. RecordBreaker looked like he was going to be the next Cr0sbar. Damn, when i came back here i was expecting the good times of SUMMER 06! that 30 team rom was kickass.
Please, lets create a more active site. Anyone on this hit or shoot attempt of a more posting loosely used bandwagon.
Hokkee you drunk

Quit hating on Crosby just because you are a fan of a loser franchise..
Then, stop being a homer because your a fan of a bandwagon franchise,Deal?
Also, throwing out there in the event of wags bitching, what did H.Sedin do for the canucks.
Transformed what would be called worthless players into 20+ goal scorers.
What freydey is saying is true, im a nucks fan through and through, I SAT THROUGH THE KEENAN ERA lets compare Crosby to say Mike Richards
Hardnosed Pansy Ass
Where do you live in BC, imma play you
Off topic: music thread
in General NHL'94 Discussion
If you want to listen to some dope current music I suggest checking out Neon Indian, It's pretty chill, lots of synths and dreamscape orchestration.
I myself play in what is damn-near a Misfits tribute band, bass and vocals, but we also play some RATM, RHCP, QotSA, and various punk stuff (Suicidal Tendencies, Ramones, Sex Pistols, Dead Kennedy's etc) Acoustic sets usually contain Neil Young, Simon and Garfunkel, Bob Dylan and whatever melodramatic bullshit I write about relationships and getting fucked up.
