  3. this section used to be poppin............where are all the trading whores?
  4. Such an intense game, a real workout for your fingers. Never seems to get enough credit.
  5. For reviving & running GDL-type league, "Chaos Draft League", (just announced) the man should be miles ahead in votes. Dominion machines?
  6. Klima 5th......don't do it! Trade that pick for volume in the 2nd and 3rd round.
  7. Did this happen a lot in the past or was it like one azzhole who did that? I only know of 1 guy who might pull something like that but he doesn't play anymore.
  8. What about draft order. Random or based on ability? I think if some high A coach randomly ends up with 1st pick & gets JR, makes things very tough for everyone else. You know me, always against the luck factor, so I think random draft order is garbage. People can always trade if there are players they really want. FPB used to give up his picks in round 2-8 to get that 1st pick JR. We all know Roenick is worth his weight in gold.
  9. I really enjoyed listening to Raph, Smoz, Dan, Chaos & AJ on the mic during that recent online KO94. It's such a complex game and you all notice & point out things that other's might not. Would be great to hear 2 of you collaborate (on video) on the deep dive idea.
  10. There's still downsides to trying to check everyone with C or CB, you miss and you take yourself out of position. If you the move the puck right before you get hit, no harm done and more ice opens up. Plus C check whores aren't a problem for anyone IMO. PS, I've always felt making great big hits should be rewarded not punished, so all this time big hitters have been screwed IMO. Imagine Tikkanen playing the entire time instead of being in the box 8 minutes of a 15 minute game. A vote is fine. I'll just have to ballot harvest from all the pro-checking coaches lol. Lastly
  11. There's definitely some truth to this. But it's far easier to retain clients than try to recapture them or wait it out for yrs. And to do that, you need to keep them interested. And by "them" I mean your core of dedicated coaches. See Sebe's recent remark in the other topped thread as evidence.
  12. Sebe gets it. This type of league that has prestige (and history) is so much more fun than classic. It brings people out from the shadows, like chum for sharks. And I know some are thinking "but we have draft style leagues going and blah blah". True, but not a gold-standard, serious league like GDL was; the biggest prize in all of 94 land and anyone who was around when it was, knows this is true. The level of play can even be argued to be a tad higher because people make an entire team of players with skills that they are their best with. For example, Raph when he drafts Scott Stevens and
  13. I would be permanently retired if it wasn't for Chaos spending 5 total hours trying to get my mysterious tech issues fixed. All you guys are valuable but Chaos brought me back to life.
  14. A) I like to delete and B), I felt it was a redundant statement of mine that no one wants to hear. PS, it ended with "But I'm a realist, it ain't happening". Habs is a 2v2 only weirdo. But he used to be a very good player and played in leagues. Very much like Ice's game (remember him?) with the wild pass shots. Probably not so much anymore as that's what happens to most when they are away from the game for years. Sebe tried coming back too but he didn't stay long. So yeah, it's a shame. They're not coming back permanently, just for this tourney.
  15. -Ditch penalties completely, they're in every other league we have not having them is (or at least was) a major hit, no pun intended) -Ditch hot/cold completely, they're in every other league we have. Static ratings = consistent performance. -Yes, 1 min penalties are better than 2 min penalties. But even with 1 min pims, you still (if you care about having your best players on the ice for the PK) often have to make a line change at the beginning and also when the penalty expires. -Basically this rom is already made, Plablegs, as it has everything you mentioned (minus pims) an
  16. I know, it's amazing. Hokkee too. But it feels like more of the exception than the rule. So many others still MIA. And some who can be contacted but just don't bite on the offer. So difficult to re-hook the fish after it's gotten away.
  17. No not dead but MIA. Some people get too busy or whatever the case and lose interest. But there's more to it IMO & from experience. When people take time off, the addictive aspect (very strong when one's an active player)...it wears off. That physiological urge isn't there anymore. It can be reignited but it's just not easy to coax former players back onto the ice because the brain has changed a little. The stimulus of even thinking about 94 doesn't excite like it does when you're active. How many of us have played exis when asked even though we're dead tired or think we aren't i
  18. Valiant effort but almost all those guys are long gone. Best to try to keep the ones in jeopardy of sailing away, in the harbor with us. Ahem Ass-storm.
  19. Quebec Nordekes PS, AJ pick a real team, don't be a cheeseball. Take a mulligan and grab LA or PHI. PSS, Raph said he would have joined if he knew I was playing. If we let that scrub into this classic it will be an even 14 tms. Or maybe old man Ice would play if it doesn't interfere with his bingo league. I'll even settle for rage-quitter FPB!!!
