  1. Good question. People here probably wont believe me, but I had a 30 goal game with Bourque with 5 minute periods (GENS, against computer controlled Ottawa). That will always go down as my greatest '94 achievement. Luckily, I had a good buddy there to witness it. Nobody else scored in the game besides Bourque and his slapshot was (and is) absolutely automatic. Other than Bourque: Housley and Coffey for dekes are unstoppable. Sick agility/speed. Iafrate. when his slapshot is on, it's a laser top corner every time. When it's not, he's useless. Zalapski is all around good too. Sleeper picks: Norm Maciver. Good agility and dekes. Mikhail Tatarinov (Que) super heavy shot with decent accuracy.
  2. Would there be enough interest on the NHL 94 forum to do a fantasy hockey league, say with 12-14 teams? I think it would be fun. I am not a high volume poster, but as you can see from my registry date, I've been reading for a while and am familiar with the regular posters here. I've commished plenty of leagues and would be more than happy to set one up in Yahoo for this forum. Who knows, if it catches on, we could make it a yearly dynasty league. Who's in?
  3. All the time. My two favorites are Daniel Berthiaume (Ottawa) and John Blue (Boston). I've had some great performances from both, and they are better than the preset starters for their teams (in my opinion).
  4. Post your best and worst teams (and why). Here's mine: BEST 1. Detroit. An offensive juggernaut with Yzerman, Ciccarelli, Federov and Coffey all being all star caliber players. All three forwards have an awesome combination of speed and shot power/accuracy. And Coffey is arguably the best offensive defenseman in the game (honorable mentions to Housley and Bourque). Tim Cheveldae isnt a top tier goalie, but he's good enough to keep Detroit on top as the best of the best. 2. Chicago. Roenick & Belfour says it all. Best forward in the game combined with the best goalie in the game. Roenick's combination of speed, shot power & accuracy, and checking, is unbeatable. His supporting cast isn't great, but Larmer is decent and after subbing off Goulet for either Murphy or Ruutu, that's a decent offensive line. Chelios and Steve Smith make up a great defensive combo. With Belfour behind them, they could be the best defensive team that also posesses the #1 forward in Roenick. 3. Boston. Far and away the best defensive pairing in the league. Sweeney is an absolute monster. Best checker in the game. Bourque is solid defensively and posesses what might be the most lethal slapshot in the game (power/accuracy both in the high 90's). Oates has great wheels and playmaking ability. Neely is a bit overrated as he can't hold on to the puck very well, but he's got a good shot. Juneau is a solid wing option. The big weakness on Boston is the goaltending. Moog/Blue are very mediocre. I've had greater success with Blue personally. If they had a decent goalie, they could be the #1 team in the game. 4. Los Angeles. Gretzky, Sandstrom and Robitaille rival Detroit's threesome as the best offense in the game. I give Detroit a slight edge, but Sandstrom has a wicked shot and so does lucky Luc. Gretzky's shot is lacking, but he makes up for it with his speed, playmaking, and suprising checking ability. The great one seems to have a hand in nearly every goal scored by LA. Subbing off Mcsorley for a great D-man in Zhitnik helps alot too. Like Boston, goaltending is LA's achilles heel. Hrudey is a bit better than Moog/Blue, but he still lets in his fair share of weak goals. 5. Buffalo. Top 5 player Mogilny is an explosive offensive force. When you pair that with Lafontaine and Hawerchuk, you've got a very solid offense. Svoboda and Smehlik make up a solid yet unspectacular defensive line. Fuhr is the third best goalie in the game though, which makes Buffalo a lock for the top 5. Honorable mention: Calgary, Vancouver, Quebec. WORST 1. Florida. A line of Skrudland, Lomakin and Mellanby is just pathetic. These guys are so slow and have no nose for the puck. Nobody on the team has an above average shot. Gord Murphy is an OK Dman and Beezer is a passable goalie, but these are dim lights in the midst of an otherwise horrific team. 2. Anaheim. Yake, Semenov and Loney are about as scary as a bucket of hair. Sure, Yake can do a few things offensively, but with that supporting cast he's on his own. It doesn't get any better either with Kasatonov and Ladoucer on D and Hebert in nets. Shudder. 3. Ottawa. I've actually had some success with Ottawa, as I'm a big fan of Maciver and a few of their darkhorse bench players (Smail, Lamb, Berthaume). But in reality, they are slow, inept offensively and defensively, and fully deserving of a bottom 5 ranking. 4. San Jose. Kisio, Falloon, Gaudreau on O and Wilson, Wilkinson on D. Irbe in nets before he was good. This team stinks. The saving grace for the Sharks are their great player names. Peter Ahola and Robin Bawa forever! 5. Tampa Bay. I know I'll probaby get some flack for this, but aside from Bradley, T-Bay just isn't any good in '94. Bradley, Kontos and Andersson are mediocre, Beers and Hamrlik are even worse, and Wendell Young is one of the worst starting goalies in the game. Pat Jablonski anyone? Your thoughts?
  5. Eklund is a good call. He's super speedy and agile. When I play with Philly, I usually go with Recchi/Eklund/Dineen. Sometimes I'll stick with Brindamour instead of Dineen, but I like Dineen's speed, especially combined with Eklund. Lindros just sucks in nhl '94, I always sub him off. Talk about overrated players!
  6. Thanks for the link. I've got 94 up and running on my mac now, and even downloaded the 2007 roster patch as well. Both work great! I'm going to hold off on the online play until I can find myself a decent controller though. I'm just not playing like my usual self with the keyboard. Thanks again
  7. I've been addicted to this game (GENESIS version) since it first came out, and I'd love to play in one of the online leagues from this website. Trouble is, I'm running with a Mac. Is there any way I can still play online?

  9. True, Gartner is a stud at center. Rangers are a good second tier team...they would be great if it weren't for their fatal flaw - goaltending. Also, Messier should be alot better given his 85 rating. He's so weak on the puck and he couldnt hit the ocean shooting the puck. Too bad, moose was always one of my favorites in real life.
  10. Daniel Berthaiume - Goalie, Ottawa has stolen plenty a game for me. His greatest moment was when I beat my buddy matt (who is very experienced and good) with DETROIT. Good ol Daniel made 32 saves and only let one by him. Doug Smail is also a very underrated ottawa player, very hard to knock off the puck and a great checker. Craig Simpson - forward, Edmonton Amazing shot...plays well off the team's superstar, Klima. Put him at center and it's one-timer city. Vladamir Tatarinov- defense, Quebec Cannon shot. Bernie Nicholls - forward, New Jersey Impossible to knock off the puck, had some crazy games with Bernie. Usually put him at center along with Stasny and Richer on the wings. Norm Maciver - defense, Ottawa Best player on the senators, known for his end to end rushes finished with a backhand deke. Evgeny Davydov- forward, Winnipeg Really a nice shot. Finds himself in good position most of the time, and is sooo much better than Steen, the preset starter for the Jets. Selanee-Zhamnov-Davydov-Housley-Numinnen is a killer lineup!!!
  11. Woh woh woh.....guys...I cant believe nobody has mentioned my man Petr Klima!! His speed and agility are off the hook, and his slapshot is powerful AND accurate. Also, when you're using Edmonton make sure you sub off either Weight or Corson for Simpson because his shot is sweet too. Killer forum!
