  1. Perhaps I'm not thinking this through but is there an impossible hockey scoreline?
  2. Well I have officially written the book because you have published me bud! This is a big day, I'll be looking for those royalty checks in the mail. When I started doing this oh so long ago, the hope was that people would be able to pick up a few pointers or tips to help them out. I never imagined guys bringing massive printouts to tournaments or producing books with articles that I have penned. Seeing those sorts of things make it all worth it and I wish I've been able to do more as I have had long periods of inactivity. With that said, I have just recently moved to a place with a ton more space for me to actually build a dedicated area space for gaming/recording. Once I get settled I would like to focus on finishing the team breakdowns (Smythe Division) and then I can focus on a project like goal scoring methods. My video editing techniques are non existent at this stage but maybe I can do something a bit more organic if my old man brain cant figure out some basic editing. I greatly appreciate you sharing the pictures and what you hope to see me work on. If you or anyone else has any suggestion of what they would like to see from me, please feel free to leave it in the thread. I'm more than happy to read over them and add them to my to do list.
  3. Woah, hold the presses! I had two 33-7 seasons. One in 2010 (DAL) and another in 2015 (LA) and now 2020 (STL) Something about round numbers and western conference teams it seems. Look out in 2025 when I get WPG rolling.
  4. Koke (Van) vs Token Toma (Wpg) #1 @koke_45 (Van) - 1000 #8 @TokenToma (Wpg) +1000 Season Series: Van 3-1 Koke showed a new dimension to his game this season as he was able to add a stout defense to his high flying offense punctuated by a sub 4.00 GAA and allowing fewer than 10 shots a game. Always a tough out in the playoffs, this may be Koke’s best opportunity at a breakout playoff run as he seems to have the pair of Bure and Linden flying high on both sides of the ice. TokenToma put together a clutch 9-1 streak to squeak into the playoffs as he held the tiebreaker over Kof94III’s champion Fed’s Flames. Not just any old 8 seed, Token possesses a +12 goal differential and played some very competitive games with Koke during the regular season despite losing the season series. Bottom Line: This is a pretty even matchup team wise and it comes down to who plays the better and more consistent game. I like Vancouver here as Koke really seems to be putting things together and has two main scoring options whereas Winnipeg only has one. Prediction: VAN in 5 Dethrox (Mtl) vs Mikeyv04 (Pit) #2 @dethrox (Mtl) -600 #7 @Mikeyv04 (Pit) +600 Season Series: Montreal 3-2 Montreal certainly took a unique path to success this season as they rode Patrick Roy, premium playmaking, and a contain defense en route to winning their division. Some red flags concern me considering a matchup with Pittsburgh on the docket. First of all Montreal was outshot this season by their opponent. Second, Montreal also spent more time in their own zone defending than they did on the attack and lastly they don’t have a gamebreaking talent on their roster. Despite these things, Dethrox plays a disciplined style that allows him to flourish by taking advantage of the other teams mistakes. Pittsburgh’s season was the antithesis of Montreal, the Pens outshot their opponents, outzoned them and had some of the worst goaltending this season. Pittsburgh’s roster is miles ahead of Montreal’s but the utilization makes me skeptical as Mario and Ulf Samuelsson carried a lot of the scoring burden while Stevens and Jagr seemed to be scuffling for the most part. A confounding yet dangerous team. Bottom Line: This series holds the biggest upset potential and I squirm at the idea of having to play Pittsburgh with Montreal. Montreal’s contain defense will have to be on point and if they can take advantage of Pittsburgh’s puck rushing defenseman, I see a clear path to victory despite all of the other stats. Montreal in 6 Jammerko94II (Bos) vs Stheds2000 (Wsh) #3 @Jammer - KO94IIsnes (Bos) -300 #6 @stheds2000 (Wsh) +300 Season Series: Boston 3-2 I get the sense from Jammer that Boston is not his favorite team but you would not be able to tell by the success they had this season. Leading the league in GAA and shots for seems to be a delicious recipe for success. The only thing really slowing down Boston is a relative inexperience to their opponent in online play. Even with that in mind, I wouldn’t be so quick to bury the Kof94II champ as his numbers speak for themself. In the other corner of this heavyweight battle is online veteran stheds2000, who used a low event, puck possessing style to his benefit. This roster is perfectly constructed to compete with Boston as the Caps blueline can handle Boston’s talented roster while Bondra will do his best to put the B’s on their heels during counter attacks. Bottom Line: This has the makings of a 7 gamer and could be a very frustrating series on both sides of the ice. These teams are perfectly situated to punch each other in the mouth with viscous body checks and stifling defense. Whoever loses their cool in this matchup will likely see their playoff run stop well short of expectation. Prediction: Boston in 7 Stantonator (LA) vs Angryjay93 (NYR) #4 Stantonator (LA) -100 #5 Angryjay93 (NYR) +100 Season Series: LA 2-0 Stantonator, hot off an impressive showing at Kof94IV continues to ride the wave in LA as he used a swarming offensive attack and excellent manual goaltending to great success this season. Using a balanced scoring attack, LA cobbled together the 2nd highest scoring offense despite only having one individual in the top 10 scoring (#8 Sandstrom). Pair this with a couple of big heavies on the backline and you have to like Stantonator’s chances at a long playoff run. You let one GENS guy win a SNES championship and it seems everyone answers the bell to take him down as this season was so stacked with competition we had to have TWO A Leagues. We all know what we get with the Angryjay style, tons of puck possession, lots of passing, and stifling contain defense. NYR led the league in fewest shots allowed, that paired with their league leading attack zone time and special teams may be their best defense against LA’s balanced attack. Bottom Line: A true pick em as LA seems to have a slight roster edge in this matchup and Stantonator has been on absolute fire since Toronto. Still, it is my odds and if I go down, I’m going down believing in myself! To the prediction! Prediction: NYR in 7 Odds to win Cup: Jammer (Bos): +400 Dethrox (Mtl): +500 Angryjay93 (NYR): +600 Stantonator (LA): +600 Koke (Van): +800 Stheds2000 (Wsh): +1300 MikeyV04 (Pit): +2500 TokenToma (Wpg): +5000
  5. Very tragic news indeed seeing that pop up on my phone today. I have always tried to give him the due his career deserved on this site, truly one of the great players to ever lace it up. Here is a blast from the past regarding some of my previous experiences with the vastly underrated (at the time) NHL '94 version of Dale Hawerchuk
  6. I'll stick with the Blues, the next three teams on my list were all snagged after me. I don't want the no name Philly defense. I'm just gonna emulate kgman with last seasons Sandersizing and this season we're gonna rock the Bassenation.
  7. I guess i ought to at least attempt a title defense. A league please.
  8. That is a huge reason why I visited Hungary a few years ago and was able to enjoy it as much as I did.
  9. I don't think anyone has brought this name up before but Garry Galley really got shafted. In 92-93 he was the 14th highest scoring dman in the league with a line of 13 goals, 49 assists, and 62 points. That line earned him the title of 80th highest rated dman in NHL '94 with the below ratings. 2/2 skating, 3/4 aware, 2/1 shot, 3 sth & passing In order to find a player rated lower than Galley on the point scoring list, one would have to look to Brad Shaw;s 41 points and 51 rating. In 93-94 Galley improved his performance to 10 goals, 60 assists for 70 points. That performance was good for 8th in league scoring for dmen and it earned him a 58 overall rating with the below upgrades in NHL '95. 3/3 skating, 4 stick handling Not sure what more Galley needed to do but Kuperman was not impressed.

  11. Yes, so many years ago we had multiple draft leagues where some of the players based out of Pittsburgh would select Fogarty with their last pick. I'm thinking they had a personal liking or interest in him because he's not rated highly enough to ever be useful on ice in a game. It was just my way of paying respect to Fogarty and the Pittsburgh people in our community.
  12. It's not so much you can't sub, it is just that guys like Ludwig and Marsh come in automatically if no sub is made manually. Depending on the league or tournament format, you may or may not be able to pause the game to make a sub. If you are able to make a sub, I would strongly suggest removing a guy like Ludwig or Marsh because there are better options available on the bench.
  13. Just get that same van you had in Toronto, it would suffice.
