  1. I don't know how much time I'll have with a new baby but I'll try my best to get my games in. I'll go in A league if there's room.
  2. I just registered so you can remove the **
  3. http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=373202 The Belfast Bruiser signed to a "Tryout Contract"... not officially back in the league yet but there is still hope for dalstarfan!
  4. Glad to hear I'm still alive with the Lidstrom signing... Sounds like it could be his last year though so I likely won't win the pool. I think Kovalev, Selanne and Modano are close with 1 more year left at most... But Hamrlik is only 37 so I could see him playing at least another 2... It also looks like there might be another pool option with the possible return of Jaromir Jagr: http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=369559
  5. Even better than my story though comes from a friend of mine from Calgary that I went to university with. We used to play NHL 94 all the time together as roommates in college. Anyways, he went to Vegas last year during the NHL awards ceremony. Him and another guy made up a huge BS story saying they were scouts for the Calgary Flames and they somehow got into the Awards after party! He was doing vodka shots with Datsyuk and rippin Jordan Staal for getting caught underage drinking hahaha. He called me the next day and I couldn't believe the stories he was telling me!
  6. I'm intrigued by Chaos playing in the NHL for 3 seasons but I can't figure out who he is? I've met quite a few NHL players over the years. Met Sidney Crosby the summer after his rookie season at a concert in PEI. I also drank from the cup at Paul MacLean's cottage in Antigonish, NS when he brought it home 2.5 years ago (he's now assistant coach of Detroit, former 300+ goal scorer for the Jets/Wings/Blues). But by far the most enjoyable player to meet was Jarome Iginla. I met him at the 2004 World Cup of Hockey in Montreal, walking in front of the Bell Centre. My brother had just purchased an Iginla Team Canada jersey a few minutes before and got it signed by him! I was so jealous. We hung around the Bell Centre a little more to try to meet some more players. Saw Eric Brewer and Robyn Regher but didn't really give a s**t about meeting them haha. But honestly, Jarome Iginla is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet. It was a real pleasure meeting him.
  7. Agreed with this comment. My cartridge does need a Vince Vaughan signature. Swingers is my favourite movie. Me and my roommates in university used to watch it almost every weekend while recovering from hangovers... in between Best of 7 series of NHL 94 of course.
  8. He needed it to sign more autographs. I was one of the first ones to go see him after the speeches.
  9. Hey Guys, It's been a while since I've been around these forums, but after last night I felt obligated to tell you guys this story. I went to a celebrity sports dinner last night in Halifax, to see the likes of Walter Gretzky, Roberto Alomar, Anthony Calvillo, "Irish" Micky Ward and our very own Jeremy Roenick speak. When I found out I had a ticket and that Jeremy Roenick was going to be there I immediately thought I needed to get him to sign my NHL 94 cartridge. After the meal and the speeches I went up to see him: Me: "Jeremy, can you sign my NHL 94 game?" JR: "Is this really NHL 94?" as I pass it to him and he looks at it. "This is the best game of all time!" Me: "I know, and you're the best cyber athlete of all time!" JR signs my game and then we pose for a picture. He asks if he can keep my sharpie and of course I say yes. He says "Thanks a lot" and just before I turn to leave he says "Hey, that's the first one of those I've ever signed." Hahaha, it was a very funny experience. I was surprised at how excited he was to sign my NHL 94 game. I thought all you guys would enjoy this story. I now own an authentic copy of the only Jeremy Roenick signed NHL 94 cartridge in the world!
  10. no he just made the rom, thats what i got from that. i'd be interested in finding out who made the cartridge though. this is pretty sick
  11. You put an edited ROM onto a cartridge and can play it on your SNES? That's unreal! Can I buy some, or is that highly illegal? lol
  12. Hey, thetoxic and I have spoken via forum PM's this week. He's having internet connection troubles, and I'm away for work this week so we're unable to play our matchup. We should be good to go by this upcoming weekend though, so we'll play our games then. I see all the other series are completed, so sorry for the delay, we'll try to get them played as soon as possible.
  13. I thought there would be more guys in the player category? Only 3 total, 1 guy and 2 girls? I was under the impression it was going to be 4 guys and 2 girls this year??? hmmmm, guess I misinterpreted everything.
  14. I think a lot of these guys are going to get knocked off this off season or next season. From my own research, of the 15 guys remaining, 11 are UFA's now and the other 4 are signed for the upcoming season only. Brind'Amour, Hamrlik, Kovalev, and Lidstrom are all signed for the 10/11 season only. All the others need a new contract to keep playing. By the end of next season, everyone on this list could potentially be eliminated. I personally, would have liked to have seen Lidstrom sign a 2 year deal instead of the 1 and I would've had a better chance. He'll likely retire at the end of next season. I think that Hamrlik has the best chance of resigning at the end of next season because he's making 5.5 mill now, a pretty good player, and he's the youngest in this group at age 36.
  15. Hey Prodigyof94, Are you going to be available to play games today? I have 6 games against you to finish my season. I'm leaving for work early in the morning and I'll be unavailable all week. It would be great to get these games in today. I'll be online until 10 eastern (11 pm my time). I haven't seen you online once since the league began, hopefully you'll make it on sometime today. Message me when you're online, hopefully sooner rather than later.
  16. My final 6 games are against prodigy too. I'll try messaging him and hopefully we can get them in this weekend.
  17. did anyone get it to work in windows 7? that would be my idea... cause windows 7 was my idea haha
  18. i think fenty will be hard to track down for games and might lose by default like me... i'll be around this weekend though. might try to get back into this, start up a new streak lol. nice run you had there shaftman! congrats
  19. Hey guys, yah I've been getting super busy with work lately, haven't played 94 in the last week or two. I'll let someone else take the reigns for a bit, but in the words of Arnold Schwarzenegger... I'll be back.
  20. Yah its extremely hard to maintain for a full 60 minutes. My goal was to try to crack 100. I think if this guy did this legitimately he would have had to try a bunch of times. It took me 3 attempts to break 100. First time I only scored a measley 69 goals. 2nd time I scored 88 and 3rd time, I got 112. I think it is feasible to do since I repeatedly got better each time but it would take a lot of concentration and dedication. But 50 goals a period sounds pretty ridiculous!
  21. Are you hitting the pass button instead of the shoot button?
  22. Impressive, I tried one time and scored 112 goals in a game. If I have time I'll try to beat this lol. You didn't pull the other teams goalie did you?
  23. NHL in Halifax would be sick, but I don't know if we could support it. We would have to build a new rink. There are no Nova Scotia businesses big enough to sponsor it. And I don't know if the fan base is big enough to fill the seats, although we would draw alot of fans from around the maritimes, the season ticket holders wouldn't account to very much.
