He should be on a line with Vancouver's "Henry Henry" in my recently finished save, they'd get along swimmingly!
I managed to set a fairly unbeatable NHL record in the later stages of my Jets save:
I don't think I'll see another 148 game winning streak anytime soon.
And although this isn't our highest scoring game, I've never seen 4 hat-tricks in the same game before or after:
and since Riz didn't bother to actually line up the NHL Olympic break with the Olympics, this is what my lineup looked like for 2 games in our 100% win rate season:
If Sweden hadn't flopped out early I wouldn't have had Sandell or Elvenes either.
In other news, Boston are now claiming Boston's player off the waivers:
We also dethroned the 80s Oilers as the highest scoring NHL team in history with a 463 goal season in 36-37, this is what the leaderboards looked like:
and during that same season we had something ridiculous happen, Jaromír Reichel scored on all three of his first three shots for a hat-trick:
Several seasons earlier I saw the lowest rating for a game a player has ever had for me; Emmanuel Murphy put up a 2 Rating game in goal for the Blackhawks:
That really is impressively bad.
And here is a very nice representation of what happens when you hit 30 games with over 80% win rate, it's happened for over 20 seasons in a row by now; This just happens to be the time I bothered to screenshot it:
But hey it's only been happening for two decades in a row, just a freaky coincidence that my goalie forgets how to make saves at the exact same amount of wins every time. Thankfully it only persists for around 10 games every time, then it goes back to normal. Any goalie we face in those games also averages at least 5% above their normal SV%, but it generally only translates into ~0 to 2 losses per season.
There has been some other ridiculous nonsense happening too over the course of this save, but eventually I got quite jaded and stopped bothering to screenshot it. This last one was pretty hilarious though:
Note that the goalie swap bug (which has been in the game for almost a year now) was the only reason the game went into OT at all, since my backup came in for 2 minutes and let up 1 goal in 2 shots. The reason this game went so long was that their goalie in net was actually out injured when I set the shot targeting; In the load screen leading up to the game he got back to being day-to-day and was put in net, since he and their backup had opposite weaknesses we ended up targeting his strength until he finally let in a goal in OT after 126 SOG in the late 143rd minute.
Would be neat if that bug could ever be fixed, since it was implemented in the 1.2 patch last summer and has been reported over at SIgames.
