  1. I'm in! The original King of 94 was awesome so won't miss part II. Thanks for all the effort Halifax and Mikey! I'll have at least 3 or 4 other guys signing up for the snes division. None of whom attended King of 94 I. All of us making the trip down from Toronto.
  2. Hey SNES brothers, I'm looking to play some tune up games to try to shake off some rust. Anyone care to just hammer out games with me for a couple hours Friday evening? I got a snes and one controller, so ideally you'd have a 2nd controller but I could try to buy one if needed. Message me on here and we can figure out a time. I live in T.O. so would just come to your hotel probably.
  3. Just updating the situation, Shaka is correct that the score was recorded as Was vs NYR, while it should have been Was vs NJ. So when you have the chance Schwartz can you post it under NJ vs Was? Then I can confirm it.
  4. We had that 5-5 tie in Washington in addition to the other 3. (I'm NJ)
  5. Not sure you got my gist there. Jota should be more insulted about what I said than you. I was implying that he often gives half assed efforts (intentionally or not I don't know), obviously in the regular season, but in the early parts of playoff series too (exhibit A: Games 1 & 3 in Pokerchamps series. Exhibit B: Game 1 in Rudy's. It happened in mine too, though doesn't show in the scores, I don't think I got the A game treatment until game 6) and the fact that it appears he didn't give any half assed efforts in yours means he took you more seriously than the rest of us, at least that's what I was trying to say. But if you say you played bad...
  6. Ya, the sweep is very surprising. I'm also surprised he didn't toy with Kid like he did the rest of us. I think Kid should take it as a compliment that Jota brought his A game from the get go. The thing is, the only way to really get a read on Jota's A game is in a playoff series with him. So there are only a select few of us who have ever experienced facing his true A game. I look forward to the next chance. - Mike
  7. Congrats Jota! I was rooting for you all the way. Now I don't feel so bad for losing to you in the first round - Mike
  8. I'm kinda drunk right now, so will fill in the obvious ones. The ones I need to think about will do later. I wish I kept notes during the year because I remember facing someone with an amazing manual goalie who I didn't expect (ie not one of the star players) that I would put in as best D. 01 Best Overall Coach - Rudy (honorable mention to Deer, both guys absolutely scorched the league, I originally had Deer here, but after a couple more beers I realized I needed to change it as Rudy handed my ass to me all season and had a very tough division) 02 Best Sportsmanship Coach - Schwartz (love the highlight reel he made of our game, plus if he did play the most games just another reason why he should win) 03 Best One-Timer Coach - 04 Best Deke Coach - Pokerchamp (I consistenly had trouble lining up his players, especially Selanne, there's no doubt about this vote for me) 05 Best Slapshot Coach - Oh damn, I remember one guy in particular who totally deserves this. Had a couple beauties on me. Damn. 06 Best Defensive Coach - Same here, one guy who's manual goalie was superb and I can't remember who it was. Damn. 07 Best Offensive Coach - Deer (he has a patent on those tic tac toe goals of his, plus just take a look at his GF... no not girlfirend, the GF that matters!!! lol) 08 Most Improved Coach - Fenty (is capable of beating anyone at any time) 09 Best Coach With A Low Rated Team - JotaC (maybe it's because he beat me in the playoffs, but he's a wolf in sheeps clothing, last year Edmonton, this year St Louis, wow) 10 Best Replacement Coach - BloodyThroats (no question, he really went out of his way to get his games in, good job!) 11 Best Rookie Coach - Pokerchamp (no question, he's a great player, any outsider who watched our games would have said he deserved to win all of them, well he pretty much did anyways, but I have some tricks up my sleeve the next time we meet as I think I found a weakness ;-) 12 Coach Who Stuck It Out Through The Hard Times - Someone get me another beer before I have to go to the bar!! - EnergyMike (I gotta change my forum login)
  9. Ya, as you can see by the game by game scores, I would win one, and then in the next game I would be thinking "okay, that was good,I can put him away if I win this next one, gotta come out firing" but he would fight back harder and win every time. It was like he was toying with me the whole series, everytime I had him on the ropes he came back throwing punches hard. The only game I maybe let up a little on was game 6 because I thought the momentum from how game 5 ended would carry me... man was I wrong! He fought back harder than ever in that one. But it's a dangerous game continually putting yourself in must win game after must win game and will probably catch up at some point. But he pulled it off beautifully against me. I'm rooting for Deer in his series since he deserves it. And Rudy and Pokerchamp will be tough competition in the west (I'm rooting for Jota since he beat me). But wouldn't it be funny, and sort of representative of how the season went, if it's a Jota vs Shaka final?
  10. Ya, 0-0 into the third one game, 12-7 another, what a dynamic series. We really need to get broadcast rights for these games. I'd love to watch this series. Is 19 goals a playoff record? That's more than a goal a minute!!! Crazy.
  11. Wow, very impressive upset. I know Boston is a strong player, played some ex's with him. Congrats.
  12. I haven't seen anything official posted about how this will be handled so I'll post my suggestion for how to fill next seasons Snes A league at least... We should have a few of the experienced A league guys (Deer, Schwartz, etc) pick the players from last seasons A league that they know are committed and good players, who don't go missing when it comes time to get games played. Then fill in the many voids with the best committed B leaguers, perhaps even holding a mini tournament or one-on-one series where guys can play as any team they want if there are any close calls amongst the A and B candidates. I know this may be obvious, but just making sure it's out there. The one-on-one series wouldn't be too hard to manage, you just tell player x and player y that there is one spot availble between the two of them, go play a 7-gamer together and the winner gets the spot. Mini tournament wouldn't be much harder to do, maybe you have 5 players and 2 spots open, give each team a week to play a 3 game series against each of the other teams, best two records make it, any tie can be settled with a tiebreaker series. Anyone who can't find time to get the games done in the week wouldn't have the commitment needed for a full season so gets cut. There shouldn't be any sort of first-come first-served thing as far as determining who actually is in the A league next year. Also, there should be no tolerance for people with firewall issues. If you don't know how to get around your firewall you shouldn't be allowed in to the league period. No point having guys waste their time with these people.
  13. B leaguers. I think we need a separate B leaguer forum. Keep their types away from our superior A leaguer discussions.
  14. Yup I agree with both. The second one isn't as important as the first I think.
  15. Count me in if anyone drops out. energymike4
  16. Game 7, Chicago down by two goals with just under a minute remaining manage to miraculously tie the game, looking for some game 7 OT action, only to see St Louis come back down the ice after a big save by CuJo to score on a nice one timer with only 6 seconds left in the third!!! Heartbreaking! JotaC is the Claude Lemiuex of this league. Clutch playoff performer even after a so-so regular season. I learned first hand why this guy won the Cup last year. Amazing series Jota! I wish we had recorded the games. The highlight package would have been like 15 minutes long of intense crazy action. In fact, we wouldn't even need to edit the games down for them to qualify as a highlight package. I had the best moment of my NHL online career in game 5 which I must share: Down 4-1 going into the third at home in a game I really needed to win, we battle back to down only 4-3 with just over a minute left when both my top D, Chelios and Smith, take penalties (idiots!!). So all I have out there for the last minute is Roenick and two bum defencemen. With no one to pass to (at least no one who could receive a pass cleanly), and all 5 St Louis players gunning for him, Roenick does not one but two crazy end to end style rushes to score two goals within the final minute to win the game 5-4. They really needed to be seen to be fully appreciated, I wish it was recorded so I could show my kids someday ;-). Unfortunately for me, that used up all my "clutchness" for the series. Jota came out firing the next game (got up 7-1 quickly as I let my guard down briefly and he pounced all over me) and was clutch and a half the the whole series and definitely deserved to win. Great series and good luck the rest of the way!!
  17. Hey Jota, I should be around most of this weekend. Next week I should be home in the late afternoons and can be free to play until 10pm or so. Drop me a line or post here if you have a specific time you want to play. As long as it fits the above criteria I should be good to go.
  18. Ya, what a horrible way to end it. Belfour is still blaming Larmer for not being on the boards. That game deserves a highlight reel for sure. Sundin had some amazingly clutch goals. Kind of like the real Sundin. Go Leafs Go! GL in the playoffs Deer. Hit me up for some tune ups before you play if you want.
  19. Hey that's awesome! (I'm the guy who was Chicago BTW, I feel like a celeb now) I don't think Chelios appreciates your selection of highlights, man did I make him look bad! Going around taking wild runs at guys, getting way out of position. I might have to bench him after a performance like that. I forgot about that post you hit at the end, 12 seconds left, holy crap! But in my defence to the poster above you'll see that I manually controlled Belfour to perfection, there wasn't any room for that baby to go in, the post is part of a goalies equipment damnit . I like how you got called with the penalty on it too. I would like to point out the Larmer goal at 2:44 in the first. I like that one, nothing that D could've done Great stuff!
  20. If we can't get 'em done before the deadline let's do 'em after.
  21. I played thetaxman33 (St Louis) and he's good to go. Zbattle works and everything. No problems and no lag.
  22. Sorry, I've had a lot of distractions lately. I hate to be the one to slow things down. I'll be on tomorrow (Monday) late afternoon - 11 pm. I'll be available Tuesday and Wednesday at the same times as well. I'll be able to check in at least every hour or so, so just IM me when you want to play and I shouldn't be too far away.
  23. Main advantage genesis: framerate (of course if you want a great framerate play 2006) Main advantage SNES: Separate button for goalie control (ie no delay in taking over goalie manually) In my experience, because of the Genesis' delay in being able to take over your goalie, there is less of an emphasis on manual goaltending than in the SNES. The manual goalie adds such a huge element to the game. An element missed in every one of the new NHL games and one not quite there in the genesis. Being able to control a defenceman to cut off the opposing forward from one half of the net, then instantaneously switch to the goalie and block the other half of the net kicks ass. In genesis, by the time you've got control of the goalie, the guy's already put it in the net. Ya, the framerate's bad, but after a few games ya get used to it. SNES all the way.
  24. Just a suggestion, can you make the playoff page so that we can enter the scores for more than one of our games at a time without the other guy needing to confirm before being allowed to enter more scores? It's going to take me a deathand forever to enter our scores and confirm them.
