It's in the game!

I loved EA Sports games in the 90s. I was a Super Nintendo nut and the first real games I played into the ground were the original John Madden Football and NHL '94. Best part - when I am done this post, I am totally going across the room and playing these. I love that I still have my SNES still hooked up and working some 20 years later. Gives me a great opportunity to share it with the kids (have to ensure they respect where the crazy video games of today came from...).

Though I knew the NHL franchise continued (continues) on, I didn't know that it had the following impact...


An interesting insert set, it provides game hints on the back for NHL '08. I like the design, no so sure on the content, but at least it is unique.

The rest

Happy for another add to the 2004-05 Legends Classics set, but the Vanbiesbrouck pic is the best from these. Personally, I always associate him with the Panthers, but before then obviously, as shown, he was with the Rangers.


Kevin Garnett sighting! I forgot he ended up with the Celtics fiven the long time he spent with the Timberwolves.
