Owen Good checks (no pun intended) in with an interesting article on, what else... NHL 94, of course!

With Nicklas Lidstrom retiring, there aren't many players left on the NHL 94 roster, that are still active today.

Quote:
Today, the four-time Stanley Cup champion and seven-time Norris Trophy winner Nicklas Lidstrom retired. All of Lidstrom's 1,564 games were played for a single team, the Detroit Red Wings, and all but one of his 20 seasons were spent on NHL '94, one of the greatest console sports video games ever.

Man, do I feel old.

For the first time in franchise history, familiar faces are now on the field in NCAA Football 13, where fans can build a national powerhouse by placing one of 10 former Heisman Trophy winners on the team of their choice for the upcoming NCAA season. Under center, in the backfield, or split wide, utilize a Legend’s skill set in the quest to win the Heisman Trophy. Video interviews with each Heisman Trophy winner will be unlocked throughout the season, detailing the achievements of their glory days. In addition, fans can truly test themselves by matching their Heisman Legend’s historical performance in one season, which will not only win the Heisman Trophy, but also unlock each player in Road to Glory.

Heisman Legends include:
  • Marcus Allen– 1981 Heisman Trophy recipient, University of Southern California
  • Doug Flutie– 1984 Heisman Trophy recipient, Boston College
  • Eddie George– 1995 Heisman Trophy recipient, Ohio State University

REACTION TIME

The new Reaction Time feature allows players to experience what it’s like on the field as a true Heisman Trophy-caliber athlete. Reaction Time literally slows down the action, allowing users to look for openings in defenses and perform skill moves to get into the open field, before smoothly transitioning back to regular speed. Gameplay has also been enhanced to include special teams and an updated playcall system.

Kings Goaltender Jonathan Quick continued his stellar Stanley Cup Playoffs performance, recording a shutout and not allowing more than two goals in a game against the Devils, earning himself the Conn Smythe Trophy. In the past, the EA SPORTS NHL® simulation engine has correctly predicted the 2010 Chicago Blackhawks as Stanley Cup Champions, the 2011 Stanley Cup Final matchup and the result of 13 of the 15 playoff matchups during the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Predictions for subsequent rounds will be released as matchups are determined.

Who do you think wins the cup?
