I recently had a game where my whole team was in the box for pretty much the entire game. Very frustrating! Especially when you had nothing to do with the infraction.

I've never been a fan of em. I just thought i'd ask the question again. This time in a poll.

there are games where the penalties get totally out of hand by the corrupt Sega refs.. and ive seen many phantom calls too which really suck ass.. but when it comes down to it you need those penalty shots called especially if your team isnt a hard hitting one.. the hitting teams will just demolish the opponent and any breakaway can easily be broken up

one of the fucked up things with penalties is the shorthanded team always seems to get a good scoring chance mostly on a breakaway..i know somebody [gr899] who actually prefers to be shorthanded, to him I say wtf?

Gotta admit, I love the penalty shots. (Even though I suck at scoring on em and defending em) Wish we can have no penalties, except on a breakaway. Now that would rock!

I always play with penalties on as a handicap.

Most of the penalties that aren't self inflicted occur when a player speed bursts a defensive player into the opposing teams offensive zone, then changes to a different player.

In a regular season game I leave them off, if I'm going for the Cup it feels better to have it on.

Oh, and by "On", I mean "On except Off-sides". Off-sides kills me, might as well watch a demo game than play with that on.

Yeah, I like being shorthanded, too (when playing the computer, anyway -- against real people, it can be tough being shorthanded)

Same here. The computer just doesn't have the AI to deal with offsides. They always end up going in ahead of you & you spend half the game circling around in the neutral zone.

It's a shame too, because I wouldn't mind using offsides to add that extra element to the game, if only the computer could deal with it.

Yup, I score prevalently shorthanded, breakaways are savage for some reason. And, well, so long as Roenick is on the ice, you're really not playing shorthanded now, are you?

I find I like being shorthanded, too. The team on the powerplay plays poor defense and you get good breaks.

I like the penalties on. They spice things up a bit :D. But yeah, the refs are totally corrupt!

oh, i already replied to this ages ago. Losing my mind.. Haven't been playing enough '94 lately, that's gotta be the problem!
