  1. I try to mix things up quite a bit so I get to play with different matchups. One strategy is to use some of the old GDL ROMs and select random matchups. That way I get a good mix of players all the time. In doing so, I have noticed there are a few players that i just can't quite use properly, no matter who their line mates are. I realize that most of this is due to the weight bug, but there are other similar players that don't give me the same grief. Players ranked higher than 70 overall that are tough for me to use: Steve Larmer, Cam Neely, Jaromir Jagr, Kevin Stevens, Craig Jan
  2. Just started using Twitch and thought it would be cool if anyone else that is streaming their games could share their info. You can find me at https://www.twitch.tv/unceman I create new challenges for each game. So far I've played without a goalie and only scored with defensemen. If you have an idea, let me know.
  3. Over an unspecified amount of time, I was able to run through the playoffs with each NHL94 team. I took the time to track the team scores and the individual goal scorers from each 4 game tournament (I won the Cup with all of them, so no losses). https://www.dropbox.com/s/f1vwf1w33ettnry/FullSeason-AllTeams.xlsx?dl=0 Overview: -Each team's goal scoring is tracked on a separate tab with the top goal scorer (and secondary double digit goal scorer) listed on the Summary tab. I highlighted games where a player scored >4 goals. -No assists were tracked, although in hindsight
  4. My next project is to play with each team in the playoffs but limit each player to 1 goal for the entire playoffs. Might have to make it best of 7, but that may end up using the equipment manager or the guy that shovels the ice to play in the finals.
  5. I ran through each of the teams again updating the format a bit. No forwards >70 overall, no D >60 overall. Player is benched after a hat trick. Only benched Roy and Belfour this time, but may force myself to use all backup goalies if I do it again. My write up about it here: http://coalm.blogspot.com/2017/11/handicapping-nhl94-take-2.html
  6. Thanks segathon. It made it feel like a new game to me playing this way. I'm sure this experiment didn't help my skills vs human opponents either. Will probably go through all the teams again setting the overall rating ceiling to 70 for forwards and 60 for defencemen. Goalies might need tweaking as well, just not sure what that will be yet.
  7. I have been looking for new and challenging ways to play NHL94 offline and solo. Like most of you, playing the computer controlled teams are no longer a challenge. Although the best competition is playing in one of the many online leagues, I have not been able to commit to an online league or find people to play against in non-league games. I took it upon myself to make new challenges. First was winning the Stanley Cup playoffs without a goalie. This proved to limit my exposure to several teams, since there are only a few teams that I might be able to use to accomplish this feat. Pro
  8. I'm interested in getting on the waiting list
  9. I love playing NHL94 (Gen). My schedule does not lend itself to committing to a league, I play whenever I need to relax, but I am usually limited to playing solo. Obviously one player games are a bit of a joke, so I would create my own challenges. Things like pulling a player from the playoffs once he scores a certain # of goals, removing all the starters, whatever it takes to make one player games competitive. My latest challenge has been playing Playoff mode without using a goalie. Sorry if this has been mentioned before, but I think this format has leveled the playing field the best.
  10. I signed up. Let's go Canes! 2 questions: 1. Can we set our lines ahead of time in the ROM or will we need to do that before each game manually? 2. The Canes roster on the leaguedaddy web site have several mistakes. Is it worth fixing?
  11. Actually, I meant how will you get the schedule to me? Should I watch for it on the message boards or will it be emailed to me?
  12. I'm new to being in a league. How will the schedules be distributed?
  13. If you guys are still looking for people to play, I'll take the Canes
