  1. You can have fun playing with the worst players in the game. A hat trick with Drake Berehowsky, a 4-goal game with Tie Domi, or even scoring a game-winning goal with Stu Grimson can make your friends weep in defeat. Some of you might enjoy playing with these lineups, and some of you might be bored to tears. Nevertheless, I suggest you give them a try and have fun with them. If you are playing against the CPU, then leave the CPU's lineup as it is (but use the line I provided for YOUR team); if you are playing against a friend, then you and your friends use the lines provided below. Make
  2. Been a long time since I've posted here; the site looks different but good! Could you put the following for the original NHL '94 in the master list on page 1, please, if possible? Weight bug fix, HITS replaces PIM in player stats Weight bug fix + checking bonus, PIM in player stats
  3. Joined years ago, but have never been part of a league yet. Had only a few games against members on here. Played against Wittgenstein in several games on Clockwise's NHL 91 rom of NHL '94 and shut him out several times. Beat Clockwise in one game and lost to him in another in same rom. Clockwise is the only forum member thus far to score more than 1 goal against me in a game. Other good players will be able to do the same if they played against me, but I can compete. Was going to release an updated version of NHL '94 in the past, only to lose all my hard work when my laptop crashed.
  4. LD: Sandis Ozolinsh RD: Doug Wilson LW: Perry Berezan C: Pat Falloon RW: Kelly Kisio G: Arturs Irbe Subs: John Carter, Johan Garpenlov, Dean Evason. If Berezan goes down with an injury, you can get some goals out of Evason.
  5. I hope you enjoy it. Let us know how it is, both the game itself and the '94 mode.
  6. Agreed 100%. I'd be fine with the original 8-bit graphics and all, as long as we could have FOUR lines instead of three, a full NHL regular season, trading & free agency, and fake shots and shot-blocking. Basically, I want NHL '95 with four lines, except it's an NHL '94 version of NHL '95. 8-bit graphics or newer graphics, this was a huge missed opportunity on EA's part.
  7. Also, the fact that their '94 mode has no online play is a massive oversight. They have God-knows-how-many online players on Xbox Live, they make many games with the mindset of making them for online play, and then commit this gaffe. It's no wonder EA has become a laughable company over the past 10+ years.
  8. I was thinking about buying NHL 14, but I quickly changed my mind on that. I'm not thrilled with the so-called NHL '94 mode. Looks more like NHL Hitz to me, and they just slapped in the '94 ice color and called it '94 mode. Sadly, I think EA screwed up big-time with the '94 mode. This would have been a perfect opportunity for them to capture the attention of a huge market of hockey fans and NHL '94 fans by having a true '94 mode with features such as shot-blocking, fake shots, and a season mode. It could have been their way of saying, "This is our way of apologizing for NHL 95. Forgive u
  9. You do realize he posted his topic in the appropriate section, right? Post-98 and other hockey titles.
  10. I was going to post that same video, but Smoz beat me to it. Now we just need the NHL 94 forums to present us with an opportunity to display the cricket video!
  11. Ronning was always a class act. And this is awesome!
  12. 1. Black #39 Buffalo Sabres jersey of Dominik Hasek 2. Mid-to-late 1990s Anaheim Mighty Ducks practice jersey (it was green with purple shoulders) That's it. I never cared for collecting/wearing jerseys of favorite players or anything.
  13. I was playing NHL 94 on my Genesis last night and saw something happen that I think may have never happened in my game before. I was playing as the Hartford Whalers while going against the Chicago Blackhawks and I made a save with Sean Burke. Just as I was sending my pass down to center ice for the breakaway, I noticed that one of my defensemen magically appeared near Burke! I quickly took the shot down at the other end with Sanderson, paused the game and went into replay mode. While viewing the instant replay, I noticed that Adam Burt was NOWHERE to be found on the ice. None of my player
  14. I know this is an old topic, but puck control pertains to the goalie's ability to not let the puck get through when it hits him. Shoot slap shots at the five-holes of the CPU goalies with the lowest puck-control ratings, and you'll see that you score more goals through their five-hole. Do the same thing against goalies with 99 puck control, and you'll see a lot fewer five-hole goals. The goalies with the best puck control will give up fewer rebounds and fewer five-hole goals. As for goalie passing, I have a feeling that defensive awareness and/or offensive awareness have something to do wi
  15. If anything, I think a goalie's defensive awareness pertains to his reaction time and positioning. For example, if you allow the CPU to shoot wide open one-timers, your CPU goalie will make saves more often with the likes of Belfour than he would with the likes of Hebert. In other words, the goalies with the best defensive awareness ratings are probably the ones that are the best at tracking the puck in NHL '94. If your goalie has a low defensive awareness rating, then your need for manual goalie is likely much greater. If the guy shooting the one-timer is Brett Hull, then it probably does
  16. Rather than saying stick right/left or glove right/left, I'll just say high/low. Position - G Number - 39 Glove hand - Left Stick hand - Right Weight - 212 Speed: 4 Agility: 5 Off Awareness: 6 (play puck and pass like Barrasso) Def Awareness: 6 (my awareness/positioning leads to saves with the chest) Puck Control: 6 (no 5-hole goals and excellent rebound control) Stick low: 6 (unbeatable on low shots) Stick high: 4 (not bad, but if you time your shot right...) Glove low: 6 (forget about low shots) Glove high: 5 (you'll need a darn good shot) My style of goaltending can best be des
  17. In general, I felt the sports games were better on the Genesis than on the Super Nintendo. I felt NHL 95 was better on the SNES, however; it's a shame they had the goalie gloves on the wrong hands in the SNES version of 95.
  18. Anybody interested in joining a keeper league? We currently have five teams, and we are looking for at least five more to bring our total up to 10 teams. The league will have a maximum of 10 teams or 12 teams (12 would be nice). This league is a head-to-head Yahoo fantasy hockey keeper league. This league is NOT for those who sign up for the draft and then never show up again. If you are going to join this league, I hope you at least have the courtesy to participate in it and be an active team manager. Leagues are more fun when the managers are active participants.

  19. For those of you who are interested in joining, there are several spots remaining in my Yahoo! NFL fantasy football league. The live online draft is currently scheduled for 6:15 p.m. EST on Tuesday (the NFL season begins on Wednesday). Please join ASAP. League ID number: 105595 Password: football Rather than drafting defensive teams, my league will be drafting defensive players this season. On defense, you will have two DE, one DT, two CB, two safeties and 4 linebackers (like an NFL team's 3-4 defensive formation).
  20. I agree that the high salaries are the problem. It will be up to the NHL and NHLPA to work out some sort of compromise to curtail ridiculously high salaries. Coming up with a minimum salary should not be a fuss for them (shame on them if they get fussy over a minimum salary). What do you think of my cap floor formula? I think it is an excellent way to come up with a cap floor so that lower-revenue teams are not forced to spend more than they are capable of spending.
  21. Well, I think step one would be doing whatever it is you do to determine the cap ceiling. We already know that the maximum salary is X percent of the cap ceiling; therefore, we can stipulate that the league minimum would be Y percent of the cap ceiling. Above all else, I believe the very first step should be determining the cap ceiling; this should not be too difficult, as I'm sure the league uses its revenues generated to help them determine what the ceiling should be.
  22. As for the gap between the cap floor and the cap ceiling, I believe I have a reasonable solution for determining the cap floor. NHL rosters carry 23 men, so it is only logical to take the following formula into account: CAP FLOOR = (league minimum salary * 23 men) + maximum salary allowed If league minimum = $550,000 and maximum salary allowed = $13 million... then cap floor = $25,650,000
  23. And before any of you dare to bring up this scenario.... Player A was playing for $5 million per season with former team, but leaves as under-30 UFA to play for another team at $2 million per season.... NO. I do not see this happening, so it is not a scenario that I feel should be feared at all. I believe the only players you will see taking such drastic pay cuts are the players of Jagr-like or Selanne-like age (and they are beyond the age of compensation in my proposed idea).
  24. I think 10 years before they can become a free agent is too harsh. I propose a compensation system. If player A leaves as a free agent under the age of 30, then X dollars and Y draft pick will be awarded to his former team as compensation (with the value of X dollars and Y draft pick being determined by his salary or matched offers). For example, if a star player under the age of 30 leaves (must be 29 or younger by October 1 of the next season) and signs with another team for a cap hit (or annual average) of $7 million, then his former team should be awarded a very handsome compensation: p
  25. It appears that Howson is interested in NHL-ready forwards, not defensemen, in any deal for Rick Nash. This has me looking at San Jose again. I think the Sharks could easily oblige by trading both Havlat and Clowe for Nash. Such a deal would be a good offer for Columbus and it would enable the Sharks to retain their depth down the middle with Thornton, Marleau, Couture and Pavelski. Obviously, Marleau can play the wing.
