  1. Right-handed players are better at moving, there is no doubt about it. Gartner is smoother, has access to more precise deking, and has a better shot than Modano and arguably Bure. The gap between Gartner and Modano is much wider than the gap between Gartner and Klima, so why are you so concerned with Modano? It's clear as day that Klima and Gartner are levels above Modano. And, to be extremely great, speed can't be higher than agility. Bure suffers from this problem. Maybe Bure is better for those who are constantly turning around and skating back to their blue line in hopes of
  2. Why not? If you're talking save states, then you would be aiming to push the game to its absolute limits. If it's possible, it can be done.
  3. Win Faceoff --> Five-hole pass shot with the fastest pass possible (ex. Eklund or Selanne) takes less than three seconds. It's so close to three seconds that three seconds will appear to have ticked off the clock unless you start the faceoff really close to the start of a second. So say it takes 2.995 seconds to execute this technique... only two seconds will tick off the clock if you can shoot the puck at a high enoug h speed within the first .004 milliseconds of a new second. Rare, but I've seen it happen once. The three second goal I've seen ten or so times.
  4. You can score every 2-3 seconds. So the record should be no more than 30 seconds.
  5. I thought you were laughing at me. I'm not starting any 24/7 league. The community can run it together, and I can banish the slackers.
  6. Why the hostile response? It's a league for slackers, get over it. The admin of the SNES league doesn't even try to complete half of his games. List a reason and I'll attempt to counter it.
  7. The community should always be running a draft league, specifically ONE at a time. There should be at least two different types of leagues, preferrably one weight fix and one weight bug, and the leagues should run similar to Plabax League in the sense that they are strict. Each regular season should be one month, each playoff season should be one month, and the roll call/draft for the following league will occur during the current league's playoffs. The draft period is when the community is most active, so having players around during playoff time will increase the chances of playoff series be
  8. Just leave the starting lines as default. I think there are too many viable combinations to have a "preferred" lineup/sub that will save time. I think Coffey-Konstantinov is the best defensive pairing for Detroit, but others probably are thinking Lidstrom. I like Broten-Gagner-Courtnall, but others probably want Modano. Another example is with Buffalo: I want LaFontaine at C, but most probably want Mogilny there.
  9. This is a family-friendly forum and there is no room for my behaviour
  10. Nice try. You are interchanging "Premium" with "Plabax". Not the same thing. Premium is just the 5th version of Plabax. The profile for Plabax clearly has the gender as male.
  11. I thought aqualizard was referring to community/forum members not signing up. The idea of locals filling up the tournament never crossed my mind. I'm saying that even if the tournament attracts a lot of people, we shouldn't be expecting tons of community members. I think most don't care about Greg, Danny and Doug who play with CoachMac (and registered), but more about Plabax, TomKabs and Carse (who didn't register), which is why aqualizard was dissappointed. But now that I look at it, I definitely could have been wrong.
  12. Let's be real here. Yeah, big events happen in Vegas. But the King of '94 is NOT a big event. It's big relative to the community, but not in the larger scale of things. Most can't even be bothered to leave a list for a draft; what makes you think they will travel many hours to play two games of NHL '94? Doesn't help that most people hardly got to play at the first King of '94, and when they did their team was decided by a coin toss. I can see why people aren't eager to go to the next. I am spot on about online leagues, and I am spot on about this too. You get why the tournament is in
  13. Not sure what this comment means. My comment was referring to aqualizard's in which he said he was worried that a ton of people hadn't registered. Why would a ton of people register for a tournament in Las Vegas when almost nobody lives nearby? It's like holding the tournament in the middle of South Africa. I don't think it would be reasonable to expect a ton of people to fly out to an area that holds 0% of community members and is close to about 1/10 relevant/active community members.
  14. Almost everyone relevant in the community is nowhere near Las Vegas.
  15. Being outchecked doesn't mean much though. This is just a product of CoachMac's bad offense or Pearate's defensive style. Some games I would purposely not check, and I would still win despite being outchecked 45-8, 40-5 or something along those lines.
  16. I remember there being someone who was against letting people with unplayable connections participate...
  17. Why did I quit? I have nothing to prove. I have conquered the game of NHL '94.
  18. Reputation DOES matter. If you are aligned with me then it's a negative. Guarantee that raph or smoz can say anything I say and get 25 likes per comment and even a "Bud of the Year" award.
  19. The community is stupid for NOT enforcing the cell phone thing as a rule to those who need it. What is anyone going to do with a phone number besides text them to play? The community has been f**king around too long and catering to slacking "buds" instead of those who really care about the game. Is it really? Outside of guys who purposely avoid playing their games (slackers), there have never been any real tough scheduling issues. Plabax League is a good example. It was the only league with rules, and it was the only league to have a healthy pace. Your example uses a casual gam
  20. Close to hundreds of people have left due to the failure to run a well-structured league. Nobody should be concerned if two guys leave because of me. Fact is, the people who leave "because of me" are also leaving because there is nothing else to look forward to anyway. Their thought process is, "the leagues suck, I suck, the only person doing anything is Plabax, and I don't like him.. So I'll just leave"
  21. You don't have to be friendly. At the end of the day, the trash talkers are just speaking without thought while the guys like smozoma go to bed with their feelings hurt over an AIM comment or a forum post. So who is taking it too seriously... the ones who let it affect their lives and talk to their wives about it, or the ones who are doing it out of competitiveness? -------------------------------------- In order for players to be retained, leagues need to have rules, and punishments need to be harsh.
