Hello Fellow NHL95 Enthusiasts. This is a new league limited to 12 players who love NHL95 and want to play a bunch of games fast. It will be as follows: League Outline 1952 DRAFT to begin the league. 5 Minute Periods during Regular Season 1 Minute Penalties 15 second Penalty shots. No Offsides / No Ling Changes. Manual Goalie. All Teams draft 12 players - 6F, 4D, 2G Your team will change from year-to-year, your players will progress/regress throughout their careers from NHL52 through to NHL21 and beyond. Example - Eric Lindros is currently an 84 OVR, however, after season 1; he increases to a 104 OVR (his NHL96 rating). This will continue until he retires, and the team will replace him with a rookie/free agent or trade. Each team has 3 draft picks at the end of each season, that can be traded, picked or used as a BOOST to 1 player/pick attribute. Example of TRADE - Team A trades 1st Rd pick to Team B for PLAYER X Example of DRAFT - Team A drafts PLAYER X Example of BOOST - Team A selects PLAYER X on their team to increase his SHOT POWER by +1 for the upcoming season only. Draft Pick used. NO In-Season trades, but go crazy in the off-season. But must be submitted to Commissioner. ANY team that doesn't complete their games or leaves the league...each game will be set as a FORFEIT of 1-0. The team rewarded with the victory will ONLY be given a WIN and no other stats to either team. League will have an All-Star Game (+ROM) where the 4 semi-finalists will play a 2v2 10min period game. There will also be a Skills Competition of 5min Practice mode of how many goals you can score, and also how many saves you can make manually in practice mode (These will be head-to-head). NEW TEAMS provide their team NAME, Nickname, jersey colors, Arena name and Logo(s). In addition, they will be provided with 12 draft picks to fill out their team, or use some of those picks for available Free Agents/Released/Unprotected Players or from Disbanded Teams.

[DRAFT] View From the Booth v.2 Dec 31, 2017 Welcome to the year-end edition of the official NHL94.com newsletter. We hope to keep everyone informed of all that is happening in our gaming scene, with a top-down look at events, leagues, forum happenings and Discord chatter. The view from the broadcast booth is often worse than some cheap seats in the arena, but journalists require a sweeping vantage point to see everything that is happening in the game. It seemed a suitable name for a newsletter that hopes to provide a bird's eye view of NHL94 and all of it's retro hockey siblings, so take a minute to get caught up with this edition of View From the Booth . Congratulations to 2017 Bud of the Year@slapshot67! [Forum thread] He managed to code a 32-team Genesis rom that allowed the community to create updated 2017-18 post-expansion roms. I took this opportunity to ask Mr. Shot67 a few questions. It turns out that Slapshot is not his real name, he's actually a fine Canadian fellow from Saskatchewan named Shawn. He would rank himself as an average NHL94 player, who has little interest in online leagues, preferring instead to play at home with friends. He's been a member of NHL94.com since 2006, but admits to lurking around these parts for about a year before joining and searching out modding resources on the forums. A love of NHL93 and NHL94 convinced him to join the site, mainly with interest in creating classic teams in the rom. As would any youngster, he admits to trying to take the easy road first, writing a letter to EA Sports asking them to do it, but oddly never received a response. He praises @wboy's NOSE program, as well as resident mad scientists modders @mack and @smozoma for helping to earn his modding badges, but credits a lot of reading and ultimately trial and error for his modding successes. I did ask if NHL titles were his only mods, and he detailed an earlier attempt to mod the NES title Rad Racer back in 1999. He jumped at the opportunity to help create the 32-team rom, and would rank this mod at the top of his list of accomplishments. He works as a freelance web and graphical designer in Saskatoon, and is taking a break from modding for the time being. A big thanks to Bud of the Year @slapshot67 for taking the time to chat, and for ushering our draft leagues into the next NHL era. 2017 has been a mixed bag of good/bad in the NHL94 community, with great successes (Kingof94II - Vegas, expansion of the classic Genesis rom to 32 teams, to name a couple) and some downers too (shrinking numbers of regular leaguers, the usual forum drama). I feel like 2018 could be a bounce-back year, with many members working hard to expose the casual gamers to this community on many social platforms, new live events popping up all over the country, and unique new league ideas popping up to keep the online leaguers busy looking for games. We've met some new talented players in this years Classic, some who have already shown interest in draft leagues, but would love to see some vets crawl back out of their caves and rejoin the scene. As gaming companies continue to milk the many millions of gamers out there with microtransactions and pay-to-play models - the retro gaming community grins with tens of thousands of hours of playable titles and sports gems with incredible replay value. In short, I don't think that the Retro Gaming scene is just for the nostalgic, nor will it be a passing fad. The next generation of gamers needs to witness the sheer amount of existing gaming content out there, and should take that into consideration before feeding the massive pay-to-play, or ad-supported game companies.
