  1. Loving this thread! Surprised about no mention of Sandis Ozolinsh for San Jose. Certainly better than Wilkinson and while not an all-star by any means, he can skate somewhat decently and doesn't fumble passes too overly often. I figure that has to count for something on a team as rough as San Jose. My experience with Brown and Butcher for St. Louis has always a bit different though in terms of speed. I've never felt like either skater was too slow to be effective and truthfully, I've always considered Brown's speed to be above average..I don't know his speed rating by memory though so I may be surprised when I actually pull it up. Admittedly, St. Louis is a team I haven't used as much over the years and my play style is more based on possession and passing, so maybe by default, I don't notice differences in speed as much as other players would.
  2. Brilliant goals Jeff! Here's a few of mine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yyvA1J6lU88 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udMZG7_1Jh0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0k7XoIrvd4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22SA2G2fEGI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajKA_1BPaOo
  3. Sums up my thoughts exactly. A 220 lb player is never always guaranteed to bring down a 180 lb player in real life nor is it always guaranteed that the smaller player should always be unable to knock down a larger player judging by weight or checking ability alone. There are too many factors at work that I think the variance in stats and performance cover as closely as possible. Ex: Think about Doug Gilmour. He wasn't called "Killer" for nothing. One of the smaller forwards in the NHL, yet was nasty and took down players bigger than him on various occasions....

  7. I'm all in on this one. I'll take the Edmonton Oilers.
  8. Hey bud, welcome! I'm more than willing to help you get started with playing online. If you see me on AIM very soon, hit me up or I'll message you if I see you online and we'll get started.
  9. I'm gonna say I'm in for this one. Would be tons of fun to take the Oilers again and see what kind of lineup could be produced.
  10. Thanks everyone for a great season and for the compliments!! It was great to get to come back as a replacement and be allowed to use Edmonton again as well...thanks Chaos/Halifax for letting me do so!! I was able to knock out 31 games in 2 weeks to make a mad dash to qualify for the playoffs and then continue on to the eventual Stanley Cup victory. Would have liked to have gotten all 40 in for sure and to have seen everyone else have been able to do so as well. Hopefully this is something that can/will be addressed next season if possible. AJ, thanks for a great series. You played really hard and had me second guessing a lot of what I was doing during the series with breakouts and offensive strategies. I was very nervous heading into the series and even though it only went for 5 games, it was definitely a lot closer than the final results indicated. Boston is not quite as tough to play as say LA or Pitt, but still enough of a pain. Neely, Ruzicka, and Bourque certainly didn't make anything easy for me as the series wore on. Thankfully, I had the Oilers again this season. I can't say enough about how good they mesh together as a unit. I had an absolute blast using them and it has been amazing to win not 1, but 2 championships with them. #simpson3:16 It's still an incredible thing to be playing this game 20+ years after its release and trying to spread the love as often as possible to everyone who either has never experienced it yet or is simply unaware of the following it still has after so long. Since December 2010, this game in its online form has kept me afloat during some extremely dark times and also has been there during some very joyful days as well. I remember one very dark night in February 2014 when I was down about some personal issues relating to a soon to be ex-gf and questioning my own existence. I wrote in the SNES superbuds chat that night that I hoped that NHL 94 would exist in heaven if I was able to make it there and that I would get to play it all with you in person someday. While that still may likely be a while away, at the very least, we're all together in this community and can relate to one another and most importantly, get to share our respect and admiration for one another and our passion for this game and all that it has done for us. For the love of the game... -Oilers442
  11. Hey buds. We'll see what happens...Chicago and I don't seem to be a good match as my recent exhibs indicate. I'd love to be able to switch to Edmonton if possible lol Either way, very glad to be back again and I will be hitting you guys up asap. My best times to play right now are Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights.
  12. Good luck this season all. Can't wait to watch the SNES A magic unfold.
