  1. Hey everyone... so i've been getting pounded in all my league games... my own fault, i haven't played in forever.

    What i'd like to do is ask for help. I'm going to record my next game and post it here.. and i was wondering if anyone would be willing to provide some assistance by watching the game and seeing where i go wrong.

    any help would be much appreciated.

  2. Plabs...

    I beat Houly 5-2 in my home game.. but we were both unable to save the game. What is the best thing to do? Here is the screen shot of the final score:

    ...and here is the scoring summary:

    1. CHI Housely (Roy)
    2. CAR Messier (Bourque)
    3. CHI Olczyk
    4. CAR Sandrstrom (Messier, Sumeulsson)
    5. CHI Oates (Olczyk, Gartner)
    6. CHI Garnter
    7. CHI Garnter (Oates)

  3. I'm a newbie of course but I've run my my fair share of video game leagues, fantasy leagues, and even NHL94, 95, and 96 leagues on genesis back in the day keeping all results on paper.

    So.

    There will always be trades that favor one team over another. Sometimes there are ripoffs. Ripoffs are more a problem in dynasty leagues. Everyone's fear here isn't the trade but that carse, being a good player, might now be REALLY good. The only fair way to do things is to have everyone vote and if 70% or more say to take it back, take it back. I've been the commish that has decided if trades are fair or not and its just too much power for one person, people end up feeling powerless in the process. I call for a vote on the Carse trade. At least 70% of the participants have to vote, and to have the trade overturned 70% of the votes registered must say so.

  4. i'd say keep all the trades. if you have hoks in a league you have to expect hok-like behavior. the only reason to rescind trades is if the league becomes unfair to play... and i don't think anyone has become ultra powerful thanks to trading with hok.

    BUT. maybe for next season you impose a rule that 1st rounders can only be traded for first rounders, and 2nd rounders only traded for 2nd or 1st rounders... anything beyond that is fair play? that way each and every team has at least two quality players no matter what.

  6. I agree that at the end of the day it's not an issue, but a deadline was set and we should stick to it. I'm not trying to make it a big deal about it -- if the league doesn't mind, fine let's do it. On the flip side, if people are against this post-deadline trade, you and Frey shouldn't make a big deal about it either...you're the ones looking for the exception!

    i wouldn't be down with any movement after the trade deadline. either extend the trade deadline if DaDonch is open to it, or live with the trades you've made before the deadline we all agreed to.

    to Mr. Borsato,

    My name is Michael, a big NHL fan, and a participant in one of the many online leagues that has popped up on the internet based on the old NHL '94 video game originally put out by Genesis and Super Nintendo back in 1994.

    In the original NHL '94 video game, there was determined to be a 'bug' in the programming. The bug makes it so that any player that is considered light by NHL standards, say 180lbs or below, becomes very tough to check or take down, while players that are 180lbs or heavier become very easy to check. Therefore, players like Eric Lindros with a weight value of 12, or Mark Messier with a weight value of 10 are not valued very highly, while players such as Andrei Kovalenko, with a weight value of 3, or Neal Broten, with a weight value of 4, are mighty checkers and are considered extremely valuable to have on one's team.

    Mr. Borsato, because of this 'weight bug' as it is termed, anyone with a weight of 5 or lower are very valuable players, and so yourself, with a weight of 4 in the game, have become a bit of a NHL'94 celebrity. The entry draft for the NHL '94 league I am in has just completed, and after the draft, I was lucky enough to acquire you straight up in a deal that sent Eric Lindros to the New York Americans. After the trade, I researched online to learn a bit about you and saw that you were now affiliated with the brampton.com and ysn.ca website. I thought I'd write you to say hello, as well as make a small and hopefully fun request.

    I was wondering if you could put your offical stamp of approval on my virtual NHL '94 team and upcoming season? Just a small statement on your twitter account that I can also put in my forum signature... something like 'Good Luck to the California Golden Seals in the upcoming season - the REAL Luciano Borsato'. I can't say anyone in our league has ever attempted to reach out to the real player for any reason let alone an endorsement of their team, so I'm hoping this will turn a few heads in our league forum!

    Thanks,

    Michael, General Manager of the California Golden Seals in NHL '94.

    Thanks for the email Michael. That’s really funny. I never imagined that I could have been traded straight up for Lindros!

    Do you have a Twitter account? If not, how’s this?

    'Good luck to Michael and the California Golden Seals in the upcoming virtual season of NHL ’94!

    Thank you.
    Luciano
