Here is the full thread on goal records. Do we suck or something?

        My record for # of goals in a 5 min game is 40 
w/ no line changes and no penalties.

Quote

My record is 67 goals in a ten minute game with
the cpu goalie in.

Quote

71 goals as the leafs agains the hawks.. goalies in.. no
line changes no penalties.. ten min periods

No penalties means they can't even B check.

Many doubted the SNES record holder guy on the forums a few years ago...

Bro, they even knew checks after the whistle counted before we did! - https://groups.google.com/d/topic/rec.games.video.sega/v8sjLlD-JIk/discussion

I bet the guy who holds the body check record is actually Carse

It’s always better to assume they are lying about their scores. So our self esteem remains steady.

"Last night I went and picked up my long awaited copy of
NHL '94, and I haven't stopped playing it since. "

^ He says "last night", so I am making the assumption that he picked it up at midnight, or the store gave him his pre-order copy early, because I can't find any messages on Sept 22nd.

"Hey gang, just bought NHL '94 for the Genesis. I'll play it in about 4 hours
when I get out of work. Looks pretty good just from the demo and the
manual."

"It's in! Picked it up today and ran to my friends dorm to try it out!"

And one from Sept 24 that seems to be from a store employee:

"Alright I'll run down the list of new features found on
NHL'94 as pointed out in the manual"

(list of new features)

"Okay, that's all there is in this new game retailing here
in Calgary, Canada at $66 Cdn."

On the other hand, you have this guy on Sept 24 saying it's "Coming soon"

"Well, its coming soon for the Genesis, but have yet to hear
word of it for the SNES. Is it coming? "

Sega CD

Someone called EA and was told it would be out in January or February. Then this guy posts that it's among newly released games in January:

"List of new games for Gameboy, Game Gear, SNES, Genesis, Sega CD, and 3D0."

(lots of games...)

"Sega CD:
[...] NHL '94"

And someone had it (and had returned it for a refund) by Jan 27:

"For those interested, here are my impressions of NHL 94 for the Sega CD.
First off a little background, I own the NHL 94 Genesis cart and even with its
flaws I love it. Cut to the chase...I no longer have NHL 94 CD, I returned it."

Super Nintendo

A lot less usenet activity for this one...

It was scheduled to come out Nov 15th:

"For those of you who have savoured the Genesis version, and are eagerly
awaiting the Super NES translation, the SNES game is scheduled to be
released on November 15th, so you'll have to wait a little longer."

However, it may have been delayed until Nov 26th?

"You can play NHL'94 for the SNES at the Hockey Hall of Fame.
It is part of the exhibit (I guess).
The Toronto Sun has a picture of Pat Burns (coach of the Maple Leafs) playing the game against a small kid (and losing :))
When does it come out for the public?
Nov. 25th?"

"I have seen some reviews for NHL 94 on the SNES, but when I called
Software Etc. they told me it was not going to be released until Nov. 26. "
