    pass in the net
  1. Hello all. I've been a member for quite some time, but only now have put Retroarch on my system and I'm looking to play. Lots of free time at the moment and would love to get some games in to see how I stack up. Here's a recent game. Friggin' Terry Yake.
  2. Can somebody play me? I am new to this website but used to play NHL 94 back in the good ole days. AiM: dadentre email: thanks! Dan
  3. Yeah...that dislodging scenario has happened to me about 10 times also. Kudos to the puck suspended in the air thing. I love that. Sometimes it hangs on the crossbar sort of "twirling" as if it was on a string. There are three really cheepo things I like to do to my opponents sometimes: 1) If my goalie is at the bottom of the rink, and there is a face-off in my zone on the left-hand side, I will sometimes pull my goalie just prior to the puck being dropped. If it works right...your goalie will skate to the bench and push the opponent's center out of the face-off circle. 2) I have recently done some experimenting with scoring behind my opponent's goalie. I will swing around the boards and sort of slingshot myself behind the goalie. If you are on your can sometimes press "A" to flip the puck over the net and in off the back of the goalie’s head. If that doesn't work, and the puck ends up in front of the net, you can make a play on it with your player when he comes out from behind the net. 3) If you are playing with offsides...there is a way that you can get away with being offside in some situations. If you pass the puck up the ice to a player that ends up being in the offensive can decide to make a one-timer out of it. If you one-time it...the computer doesn't consider that "possession". If you don't must get out of the zone...but if you DO can be a great demoralizer to your opponent. cheers Sheehy
  4. Yeah...Sween, Mog, and Gord are good. (Sweeney actually isn't as deadly as in 93 in my opinion). I agree that agility gives you the advantage of being able to cover the ice better, and line-up guys who are slower, but it is more than that. There are guys like Makarov who have killer agility and speed, but just bounce off players they try to body check...even when they totally have the guy in the trolly-tracks. I still want to know what makes the "hot-knife-through-butter" type checkers. These are the guys who can be at the very end of an ill-timed speedburst...just coast into a player on fumes...and still knock him down with no resistence.
  5. Ok...the true NHL94 fans will know that a player's checking rating means nothing on the ice. We know that huys like JR, Gretz, Sundin, Eklund etc have low checking ratings but are absolute monsters on the ice. Other guys like Chelios, U. Samuel, and Brent Ashton have good checking ratings...but can only take down the super-wussies like Messier, Andreychuk (love that name), Otto, and any of the starting forwards for Pittsburgh. Whats the deal??? Sub topic: best checkers in the game: Fleury Eklund Roenick Sundin Gretzky Gilmour Bure Bautin Davydov Bradley Lafontain Lebeau Savard Zhitnik and finally...the king of them all...Cam Russel... I s__t you not. He is an absolute monster. He can maul even the rockiest of rocks. cheers, Dan
