The Islanders weren't terrible then, but in NHL '93 the defense (w)as so poorly graded in the stats, one was forced to play other teams. I used to play the St. Louis Blues for some good parity.
With Kelly Chase, Garth Butcher, and David Lowry, I could crush and pummel the competition, while scoring with Shanahan, Hull, Janney or my favorite speedster: Nelson Emerson.
My goalie? Cujo.
Loved it, and NHL video games ever since. No matter the trials, tribulations, or just hard realities of the real world, in the games we could forget the wreck on Long Island and play out our frustrations by launching Wayne Gretzky into the next zip code.

Gallof, an Isles fan. Our pal Dominik would love this guy. Five Reasons Blogger B.D. Gallof Loves Hockey - Puck Daddy
