  1. My write-in vote is for @kidswasted since he generally is the only person that realizes that my jokes are actually jokes and responds with an appropriate reaction emoji. Oh, and pretty much single-handedly runs a third of the leagues that I take part in.
  2. In! Probably A league if we have a full roster of coaches and do a ~13/13 split, otherwise put me wherever you think works best.
  3. 1. Name, age, occupation, location? Evan, 37.9 (older than DanTML), Electrical Engineering Technologist, Halifax Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. 2. What hobbies or other interests do you have? Mountain biking, sim racing, tennis, reading, foreign film, music (the music itself as well as audio gear) 3. When did you get introduced to the game NHL'94? How did it happen? Played some Blades of Steel, Ice Hockey on NES and NHLPA Hockey '93 on Genesis at friends houses when I was a kid. For some reason I didn't get a hockey game of my own until NHL 95 for SNES. Started playing NHL 94 (SNES) with a friend who had it and for the next decade or so would continue to claim 95 was better years after I'd even played it but continued playing 94. 4. When did you get introduced to nhl94.com and the online community? Were you playing between these two dates? (That is, between first becoming aware of game, and first becoming aware of nhl94.com.) Got an invite to the first SoCHEL tournament because I was on some mailing list that I didn't consent to from attending the tournament in Halifax. This led me to the Discord which definitely is what kept me hanging around. I played pretty much weekly (drunkenly before and after the bars) up until I moved away from the friends that played in 2011. Just a couple times a year after that. 5. What are a couple things that you love about the game? Definitely love the fact that you need to use manual goalie to be competitive. Newer games if you try and control the goalie you're generally gonna have a bad time. Also enjoy the 90s superstars I loved as a kid. 6. Are you a gamer in general? What other games do you play? I play the new NHL games online each year, mostly with friends on the same team the past few years. Love Dark Souls and Bloodborne, so pretty pumped for Elden Ring to come out. Dead Cells is one game that's hooked me for the past year or so. Fewer and fewer games are getting my interest these days, especially with all the 'games as a service' bullshit and whatnot. 7. Do you follow hockey in real life? Any other sports? Use to love hockey. Would watch all of the playoffs no matter what. At this point I'm pretty much just a NY Rangers fan. I'll watch almost all of their games, but rarely tune in to any other games, even the Stanley Cup finals. Just started watching F1 a couple years ago. Heard there was a bunch of crazy crashes the first race of the season, so watched a replay of it and then every race since. I love that you can take in the sport in pretty much its entirety with three hours of commitment every other week. Also qualification and races are most often 10am Saturday and Sunday here which is perfect for me since I rarely put on pants or even think about leaving the house before noon on weekends. 8. If you have been to a live tourney, what was it like meeting the real people behind the screen names? Any big surprises? I learned the screen name of the guy that won the live tourney was dangler only after the fact. Wasn't really a surprise since he dangles. 9. What is behind your screen name? (Origin story, if there is one.) There was one kid who started calling me Mooney. I asked him why, and he said he saw someone with that last name in movie credits and thought it was a dumb name. Started using it for things online back when nobody used their real name for anything, 10. Favorite NHL94 player in game (and why)? I'll go with a couple of my most used for SNES draft and salary cap league. Pierre Turgeon: good size, decently mobile with a great shot. Pretty much a discount Sandstrom, who seems quite a bit more popular. Rob Blake: crushing, mobile RD which are few and far between in the game.
  4. I'll play if you'll have me. (I'll take Rangers, if it is just going by dibs)
  5. Sign me up. I will take my beloved New York Islanders.
  6. I suggest keeping these dibs as tentative pending the editing of the rom to equal out teams. If that can't be done, tier the teams based on the home/away advantages and align that with the draft order. If the preferred team is in that tier then its good to go. It looks like half the teams might be considered neutral Tier if you consider strong/weak a wash, and many folks might get their preferred team anyway. I don't know if picking ~20+ and having a disadvantaged team would be too substantial, though.
  7. I feel this would be ideal if could be done, otherwise maybe we could reserve the teams with Strong/Average advantages for the weaker players to help parity.
  8. I'd be in and take NYR if we're calling dibs. If it were up to a vote, I'd vote for no penalties since they are random and dumb and often negate the benefits of injuring other players. Injuring opponents should always be encouraged and rewarded.
