Trying to figure out why we call EA '91? When it seems that from the article EA hockey came out after NHL hockey. So I'm thinking we should also be calling it '92?

It does explain the massive, Hungarian, Terry Yake fanbase.

That is a huge reason why I visited Hungary a few years ago and was able to enjoy it as much as I did.

@smozoma it really puts NJ, WSH, VAN, and PHI in a different light...Spain, Italy, UK and Portugal. Not exactly hotbeds of hockey. 

NES Ice Hockey always made me scratch my head...

Canada, USA, USSR, Sweden, (T?)Czechoslovakia, and.. Poland?

FYI, Japan actually replaces Sweden in the Famicom / Japanese version.

That's why I thought there might be a Japanese team in the Japanese version of EA Hockey.

Anyone have an explanation? I feel like this is an unsolved mystery. Is Robert stack around?

probably just a throwback that someone added to later when the year was added to the name, it was never actually named that, always EA HOCKEY to me

ahh just seeing the preview in MEAN MACHINES was enough for me for an instant sale, as i was looking for a decent enough ice hockey game ... and after TWO DECADES of using it for my simming competitions it was retired

and i guess the teams were selected because they were the more popular ones ... yes even poland :P

it was quite interesting as to who won ... here's the list of my world champions

2009-2010 - GERMANY
2008-2009 - FINLAND
2007-2008 - SWITZERLAND
2006-2007 - FRANCE
