Virginia is making it's debut appearance in our tournament!  It's our first time adding a "commonwealth" to our map, so we're honored!

Is Canada a commonwealth?

If so my bad bud.  On that note, when are you coming back?

No worries :D. It's not actually called a commonwealth, rather it's part of "The Commonwealth of Nations" which is basically the UK and a bunch of former territories. Which I only know because of the Commonwealth Games (mini olympics that shows up on TV every few years).

Can't say; not a big traveller.

Flights aren't too shabby out of Ottowa to Minneapolis.  The buds at large would love to have you.

Not to be overlooked, @smozoma was the guy who put me in the loser's bracket in KO94-4 with a 2-0 series!  LEGGO SMOZ

Good times (and a lot of good luck/RNG) :D

Also @smozoma :

Has won Long Island tournament in 2017...

Took 2nd in SNES in Green Bay in 2018...

Has been to all of the King of 94 main events, Toronto, Vegas, Vancouver, back to Toronto, as well as Retrothon in Saskatoon, and probably other tournaments outside of Ottawa...

I get it, NHL94  tournaments are business trips.  :D

I think @angryjay93  and @halifaxmight be the only guys who travel more than you do for NHL94, with @kingraph and @IAmFleury'sHipCheck taking a close 3rd/4th place.

If it works for you we'd love to have you back.  If not, we'll understand, and continue to appreciate all you do in the community.

Hmm don't do that pressuring ^   :/

After doing Sask-VEG-LI-GB in a period of ~15 months in 2016-18 (plus a trip with friends to Iceland in 2015) I concluded/admitted that travelling was not for me and have only done the two Ko94s since then.

That said, outside of the Ko94s, I'll probably go to NY/LI again (packaged as a trip with the girlfriend, like last time) and looking to go to MTL some time as it's close.

(corbettkb won LI! Beat me in 3 games. I treasure the NYI pillow I won, though :D)

Just a friendly reminder, that we have a couple of important dates coming up...

December 30th at 7PM we will be holding our SNES Satellite at DMEN Tap in Chicago, IL.  Turnout is looking good for that.  We'll be streaming over on the Retro Sports Gamer channel that evening, so we hope everyone will tune in!   The winner will get free entry to the Modano Feb 29th tournament!

Secondly, we do have just 4 days remaining should you wish to be eligible to win the signed Neal Broten jersey.  Shoot your $40 over to www.paypal.me/trojan1979 via friends and family to get locked in.

We'll announce the winner over live stream New Years Eve!

 

Thanks buds!

This week marks the beginning of prize reveals for those that attend the tournament! 

The Shield is responsible for most of the prizes you will  be seeing  between now and the day of the tournament, and we can't thank him enough!

First off is this Starting Lineup Dominik Hasek figure.  While he rarely sees the ice in NHL94, we all know just how dominating "The Dominator" was during his time with Buffalo.

This prize can be won by anyone attending Modano Mo Problems as a paid player!

Another day, another prize!  This Curtis Joseph figure is from his time with the Leafs, but we all know him as one of the Blues.  With one of the coolest all time Mask decals,  this figure shows "Cujo" stacking the pads and diving  for what is undoubtedly an epic save!

This prize can be won by anyone attending Modano Mo Problems!

Another day another prize!(Thanks Tim Ubick!) Doug Gilmour is a two time All-Star, won a Stanley Cup with Calgary in '89, and was the best defensive forward in the 92-93 season, winning him the Frank Selke Trophy. Coupled with the 4 weight rating in NHL94, he is a defensive force in the Genesis version of NHL94, and can drive one timers home with ease.

Want to win this figure? Just get signed up for Modano Mo Problems today, and you'll be automatically entered!

$40 ==> paypal.me/trojan1979

After his breakout 92-93 season with the Leafs, Felix "The Cat" Potvin found himself in the starting role, which led to the trade of Grant Fuhr to the Sabres.

You might know him better as the video poster boy for the NHL94 TV commercials.

Want to win this figure?  Compete in Modano Mo Problems February 29th for a chance to win!

The prizes keep rolling in! Pierre Turgeon is part of a very good forward line for the Islanders in NHL94, a team that suffers from poor defensive play and goaltending. Did you know Pierre has a brother in NHL94? Who is he, and what team does he play for? #edgeof94-midwest Want to win this?

Part of the Stanley Cup winning New York Rangers in the 93-94 season, Hall of Famer Brian Leetch is widely considered to be one of the all time greats on defense. This Brian Leetch figure can be won at Modano Mo Problems!

A serious weapon in the SNES version, and curiously absent in the lines of experienced  players in the Genesis version, Hall of Famer Eric Lindros has incredible shot ratings..  This prize can be won by any paid player  in the Modano Mo Problems tournament!

Hey it's nice they gave this guy a figure just for being related to the GOAT, Sylvain Turgeon.
