  1. Question 1: I like Minneapolis because I have decent flights, it is affordable, and I can get around to several parts of town without having to rely on a car. Plus it's about as far west as any tournament comes so I will take what I can get. Question 2: I'd still most likely be able to attend in Green Bay. I was monitoring flights earlier this year, they appeared to be numerous, convenient, and affordable. In previous years it has proven somewhat difficult to find all 3 features to the point where I have flown in to Chicago to save on time and money despite the 5-6 hour round trip via car
  2. Perhaps I'm not thinking this through but is there an impossible hockey scoreline?
  3. 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 t
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. I guess i ought to at least attempt a title defense. A league please.
  9. That is a huge reason why I visited Hungary a few years ago and was able to enjoy it as much as I did.
  10. 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. Tha

  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Just get that same van you had in Toronto, it would suffice.
  15. Online you can use whatever gamepad will work with your computer and retroarch. You do not need a separate controller for each console.

  17. Robitaille is the objectively better player but give me Granato any day over him at RW. Hawerchuk gets dogged a lot but he's still someone I rely on heavily when using Buffalo. And then there is always my good friend Chris Kontos in TB, perfect trigger man. On defense I really like Leschyshyn over any of the other QUE dmen and I think Lidster and Lumme are a real solid pairing despite getting a lot of hate in tier 1. In net, give me Kelly Hrudey, he and I have been through some battles and I'd gladly lean on him again.
  18. Notes: - 3 Lines Needed for Season 3 - Backup Goalies play on Line 3 (ANH, NYI, OTW, SJ, & TB may use any of their goalies as the starter . The declared starter shall remain the starter unless the team elects to modify their line later in the season as detailed below. - If an injury occurs, a player from a lower line must be subbed. If a Line 3 game, a reserve must be subbed into the lineup. - For every three game series, a team may sub in one reserve player for one game. Once the substitution is made, the team is no longer eligible to substitute a reserve player (except for in
  19. Season 3 Draft Hello everyone and welcome back to Season 3 as we wrap up our first cycle through the league. Just a tiny bit of housekeeping here before we commence with the draft. There are only 8 unused teams remaining for the 9 players drafting here, so we will need to incorporate one recycled team. In the first screenshot below you will find the details to every team available this season. Several players have been moved around or added to due to the presence of expansion players and teams. Each team will have at least 12 F and 8 D available. The second screenshot below wi
  20. I may be reading this all wrong, but would I be able to upload the games from my own season mode onto a website for better stat tracking? Currently, I'm going through an entire season of 95 against the computer by playing every game as the home team. I was playing a lot more when I thought I could attend the 95 tournament later this year but have since slowed down when I realized I can't make two Toronto trips in 3 months.
  21. How the forgotten man was found: Recently I was perusing NHL Reference and thought I'd go over to take a look at the 92-93 Los Angeles Kings roster . The Kings are one of my favorite teams in the game and I was curious to see how players like Luc Robitaille, Wayne Gretzky, Tomas Sandstrom and Kelly Hrudey performed. As I was scouring my way down the roster, I noticed a name that I recognized but couldn't quite put my finger on. As I thought about it a bit longer a new thought occurred, the fact that this player was not included in NHL '94 despite playing 49 regular season games. With thi
  22. Being one of the select few individuals to make it to all 5 NHL events that Troy @Edge of '94 Midwest has put together, it is incredible to see how far we have come. Every year the production value, quality of the competition, contributions from the community, and the fun experienced at the event goes up. If for some reason you are on the fence about these events, you need to jump right off that fence and get involved immediately. Win, lose, or draw you can not beat the amount of fun to be had at these events, bring your friends and make a day out of it. We enjoy a good time as much as we do g
  23. Notes: - Only 3 lines needed this season - Backup goalie plays with Line 3 - If an injury occurs, a player from a lower line must be subbed. If a line 3 game, a reserve must be subbed. - Posted lines may be edited in preseason/exhibitions up until a team plays their first game of the season. Line Edits: After 24 games, a team may edit their line combos ONCE. If the edit is not exercised prior to the teams last 3 games of the season, the edit is forfeited.
