  1. (2) Depch - Boston | 5.32 GF | 3.25 GA | -300 (7) HABS - Montreal | 5.48 GF | 3.76 GA | +300 Season Series: 3-1 BOS These two teams met early in the season, where Montreal was struggling to get anything out of their lineup of Kamensky-Klima-Verbeek, Boston dismantled em for 3/4 games. Much has changed since then as the team is playing much better since the second half of the season. Montreal was the 2nd highest scoring team in the league while Boston ranked 4th and each team was ranked 7th and 6th respectively in GA/G. Boston's formula of speed with Hogue-Ronning-Reichel and great huge dmen Bourque-Fetisov has paid off quite well. Depch has a had a super consistent season and manages to keep all games within reach. Boston also sports the best Away record at 22-5. Prediction: Mtl in 7 or Bos in 4 (3) Flamingpavelbure - Quebec | 5.33 GF | 3.91 GA | -300 (6) zepplin - Hartford| 5.31 GF | 3.17 GA | +300 Season Series: 3-1 QUE FPB has had a pretty incredible season considering he has started Stephane Fiset as a point. Not sure if he's going to continue doing this into the playoffs. Quebec also boasts the best PP% in the league at 39% while Hartford sits 4th at 30.3%. Zepp has had a real solid season with a balanced and very speedy attacking unit in Bure-Turgeon-Courtnall and Leetch and Wesley on D. This much agility has given many teams issues. While Quebec boasts a more rounded lineup with Jagr as a bruising, agile playmaker, Sandstrom with the best shot in the game and Zhamnov a crafty, agile, passer. Ellet and Blake round out the lineup. FPB tends to step it up in the playoffs and I think this will be a tough matchup for Zepp despite him playing so well. Prediction: Que in 7 (4) Brutus- Philadelphia|4.92 GF | 2.77 GA | -135 (5) IceStorm- Buffalo| 5.27 GF | 3.17 GA | +135 Season Series: 3-1 PHI These two teams are built totally differently, this should be very interesting. Brutus has arguably one of the toughest lineups to face. A lineup that features two of the game's biggest stars in Mario and Roy. Mario has been utterly dominant this season at 3rd in league scoring while Roy was 2nd in GAA, 6th in SV%. Ice has been playing well defensively with Moog as well 3rd in GAA, 3rd in SV%. Brutus' bruising hard hitting lineup gives opponents split seconds to make decisions and makes it difficult to get through to the net. Brutus and Ice were #2 and #3 ranked in GA/G. This should feature a nice and dirty low scoring series. Brutus is having a career year, let's see how far he can take it. Prediction Phi in 7. (1) KingRaph-New Jersey (8)TexasPachyderm-NY Islanders (Won 4-2) Well this one is done before I could say anything. Huge upset. Tex has been rolling lately and it is nice to see an 8th seed take out #1, cudos to Tex. For the PATRICK division hoping somebody in that division can help write up as I won't have the same perspective as you guys and haven't played as many games vs that side.
  2. Can we get the season deadline to come sooner? Say April 15?? Seems like it is quite doable.
  3. Ok ok not dead, was just a little lul for a few days. My bad on the overreaction. League is definitely going very well in terms of completion. Discord has made things much smoother!
  4. Zzzz zzzz league dead. Same couple guys slacking.
  5. I should be around from 7-11pm ET today.
  6. You do realize this game requires very little bandwidth. Jitter/latency are far more important and there aren't great ways to minimize that. Also Gens works fine on super old computers as long as they are well maintained.

    Draft Thread

    Stastny, yushkevich
  12. Do we have to log in just to see standings? Can you not make the standings page public? Too much effort for outside observer to take a peak at the league.
  13. Sure I'd be interested in contributing.
  14. I agree with Depch and view CB as an evolution in the game. Just like pass shots and B checks. It's cool that we're able to discover something new in the game. CB isn't going anywhere and it doesn't take rocket science to get the hang of it. Sure it may change the way we draft but that's only natural. Previous GDL drafts were getting stale and boring as the same players would always be drafted around the same spots. Now we have some crazy variance and fluctuations in ADP, and people can actually find hidden gem type of players. Sure Raph is dominating right now but he's had a huge head start of everybody with CB and knows exactly how to draft his guys. As we get more drafts you'll see those advantages slowly go back to the norm (where Raph is still ripping it).
  15. I've read this claim a number of times in this thread and thought it was funny that you've lead all recent leagues in body checks for (BCF). Like wut. Fall Classic GDL Plablegs
  16. Okay... Let's steer this back to how B players can improve. And really how we can get this game even more competitive. CB is it's own debate and it seems pretty heated. Personally I think it has opened up the pool of players greatly and made drafts much deeper and more interesting. While it is an exploit, so are most of the other things Raph listed above. I'd say rebound goals are the grossiest goals in 94, a true hack that makes one vomit in their mouth everytime one is scored. But I digress, let's get back to ideas on closing the skill gap.
  17. If you're thinking keeper league what about dynasty league style. Back in the day sungod used to run dynasty and the plan was to have the next season have nhl95 player ratings. This isn't very hard to do either you basically copy the players into the 94 rom. I'd love to play with forsberg etc.
