  1. This could be pretty awesome. I’d like to be Ottawa if they’re still available. I know they usually go fast.
  2. Nice tidbit of info here. I think that, in SNES at least, there's a lot of anecdotal evidence that the checking rating factors into how hard/effective a player's checks are (not just how often a player will check).
  3. Great writeup! I agree the Kings are an awesome team. Size and shooting skills are top notch. Right up there with Boston and Pittsburgh in my opinion. Like annatar says, I think Sandstrom is the best fit at center. He has that rare 85/85 shot, same as JR and ciccarelli. So if you want size and shooting at center, there aren't many better options on any team. I also love Gretzky as a playmaker. He's so elusive with that 100 agility, stick handling and passing. Super fun to use a pure passer for Sandstrom and Carson. Carson is also super underrated. Almost the exact same ratings as Pierre Turgeon who many consider one of the best in the game. He does have the odd game where he's really cold, and can't take a pass. Luckily, the Kings have lots of bench options. I find Luc Robitaille is just not effective for me. He's not a great skater for his size. Plus, his shot is redundant on this team, since Sandstrom and Carson also have wicked shots, with more beef. Maybe it's crazy, but that's how I justify benching Luc.
  4. Great thread! Re doppelgangers: Muller and Linden are basically lefty/righty mirror images. They have the same weight and stats across the board, except for a few that don't matter much: checking, roughness and aggressiveness. (I noticed you didn't even include the last two stats above). Nolan and Bellows are also very close. Same weight and handendess, and they only differ a bit in checking and passing. Again, not counting roughness and aggressiveness.
  5. I think this deserves a response! I admire your effort and how quickly you could throw this together! I think the content would seem a bit "dry" to most people since it's the standings for a bunch of leagues that are all listed online. Probably some more editorial type articles would be more interesting for the reader, but that takes a lot of time and effort. Standings and results should be a part of it, but not a huge part of it. Articles about, for example, the best SNES defenseman, or the best GENS goalies, or a ranking of best uniforms in the game, or a write up of a particular memorable game or something like that might be a bit more interesting.
  6. Awesome. I’m in. I’d like to be Ottawa but don’t really care. I guess the home/away advantages carry over to this rom? Or can they be made even across the board? Probably a question that someone like @kingraph can answer. FWIW I think trades should be allowed for a couple days post draft. My reasoning is because you could draft a player early on but then they don’t really fit with your team makeup when all is said and done. Big thank you to @annatar @dangler and @TecmoJon
  7. Thanks, I actually just updated my post above. I have lines suggestions. Also think Pageau should be there. Maybe not Turris.
  8. This looks awesome, and I hope you are still taking input. Ottawa really needs Chara to be there. He was their best Dman for years, and made a name for himself with Ottawa. I suggest the pairings go: Chara - Karlsson Redden - Duchesne Phillips - Chabot extra: Volchenkov, York delete: Borowiecki and Kuba At forward, Bobby Ryan can go. He was terrible in Ottawa other than one playoff run. Replace him with Shawn MacEachern on Yashin's wing. He averaged 25-30 goals and 50 points over about 5 seasons playing with yashin. Speedy, good shot. Also, would put Pageau in. He's local and was beloved. Had a couple playoff hat tricks. For lines, I'd go: Heatley - Spezza - Alfredsson Hossa - Yashin - Stone McEachern - Fisher - Havlat extras: Bonk, Arvedson, Neil, Tkachuk, Pageau. The hard part will be the ratings.
  9. I don't know. After several king of 94's, you see all sorts of matchups. Not too many that are crazy or unexpected. One thing that's kinda interesting - with the exception of Ottawa, you can match up any of the Canadian teams and it will be fairly even.
  10. This is a great chart, but the team ranks are very subjective and everyone has their own preferences. I'd say there's a group of two to five elite teams, five terrible (expansion) teams, and everyone else is right in between! You could almost have a single tier from Calgary down to the Islanders.
  11. The framerate is sooo bad. Other than that, it's a pretty fun game. I still remember getting it Christmas morning (in 1992 I guess). I do enjoy playing it from time to time, mainly for the fighting. You can also do some pretty ridiculous bodychecks. Sometimes a player gets somersaulted 20 feet into the boards accompanied by a funny sound that reminds me of someone slamming a garbage can shut.
  12. Awesome! Honored to play with @thekingof94 as my D partner.
  13. Capitalism league! I think that was the first league I played in and I was like WTF is this?? @metzgerism ran that league. What happened to him? I think he's real life friends with Ottawa legend Jamie Baker.
  14. Masterof94 was damn good. I lost a classic league final in game 7 double OT to him. I think it was 2009 or 2010. I remember he had a brother, prodigyof94. We thought they were the same person because at one point they had the same IP address. There was a bit of drama around that. I think they lived in Chicago?
  15. Thanks @Xstioph for putting this together. It's really cool. I am wondering though, is there any potential for updates/corrections before league play starts? For example, Yashin and Daigle are both the wrong handedness. I also noticed Jason Arnott was wrong. If not, no worries of course.
  16. Dumb questions here: is this for SNES? Are you even able to put 32 teams in the game if you wanted to? For some reason I thought the max number of teams was 28 based on the original team ROM.
  17. Don't get me wrong, the name sucks too, I just don't really care.
  18. I don’t mind the name but I think the logo is pretty bad. With the placement of the eye, the whole thing looks like a snake. Maybe I’m in the minority, but I think it could have been so much better. Someone made a mashup of the secondary anchor logo and the S together and it looks pretty good. The colour scheme is fine, but I like the idea of including that lime/neon green like the Seahawks.
  19. I left a bunch of comments in the doc on the Ottawa roster. Overall looks great!
  20. The other difference with the new logo is that the red piping/lines around the three wings, as well as the red line for the cape type thing under his neck will now be gold. I like the jerseys you posted above (with the thick white lines on the black jersey). But apparently the new jerseys won't have those thick white bands, just red. We shall see if that report is accurate or not.
  21. @kidswasted Lafontaine could go on either team. He never won a Cup with the Isles or at all. The Isles had Trottier, Bossy, Gillies, etc., and the Sabres had the famous French connection line. So you could put Lafontaine on either team really. I'd lean towards putting him on the Sabres with Mogilny and Hawerchuck since it's a pretty legendary EA NHL trio. Also, did you know that one or two ROMS with all-time great rosters already exist? You could use those for reference. It was either a SNES Juiced league ROM, or maybe @metzgerism's Capitalism ROM. I have no idea how to find those ROMS.
