Genesis Draft League XI and NHL '94 Gentlemen's Club Leagues
2 leagues have just started up on NHL94online.com, one with a long history and one with a fresh new idea!
Genesis Draft League XI, a league using the original '94 ROM, holds a draft before every season. It takes a 56 game season to determine who makes it to the playoffs. This is one of the most storied online leagues in '94 history, bringing the best players around to face off in a 24-team league. Can the 2-time champion Swos win back-to-back championships? You can read more about the league and its history in the GDL forum.
NHL '94 Gentlemen's Club is a new league with only 8 coaches, where the original '94 ROM is used. Coaches chose teams in the beginning of the season, and play through most of the season using the original rosters. There is a new twist though; a little over half the season through, there will be a trade intermission where a brief draft will be held to pick up some free agents from unused teams, and trading amongst coaches will be allowed as well. This could help some teams pick up some more firepower to help propel them into the playoffs, or fill in big holes in their defense. For more information, you can check out the thread here.

2013 Fall Classic League Begins
Teams have been assigned, and schedules have been released. If you were a confirmed coach, you have been assigned a team in one of the leagues. There are five 40 game leagues (GENS-A, GENS-B, GENS-C, SNES-A1, SNES-A2) and three 20 game leagues (GENS-D, SNES-C, SNES-E). Please see this post for details.
Those interested in playing can still sign up using the registration page. Once you are confirmed (your online setup works and has been tested by a veteran coach), you will be eligible to be used as a replacement coach. Replacement coaches are needed throughout the season. Those of you who signed up, but didn't get a chance to be confirmed are already on this Waiting List. Please get confirmed as soon as you can! Good luck and lets hope for another successful season!
