NHL 14 Revival? 
Posted on August 21, 2020 at 11:15 AM.
Editor’s Note: Despite occasionally reviving my NHL 14 Be a GM on Xbox 360, I have not updated any OS Dynasty since May 2016. This month, I started using Felixeur’s slider set for 20-minute periods, which has been interesting to say the least. Shots and goals have been trending higher, but I won’t complain about a seven-year-old video game.

Before we bring this dynasty to the “present,” we begin with a recap of Jeffrey Hendricks’ tenure with the Detroit Red Wings and his first 5+ years with the San Jose Sharks.


In 2013-14, the Red Wings went 67-9-6, won the President’s Trophy, and won the Stanley Cup. The defense took a major step backwards in 2014-15. A 39-32-11 record ended their sacred consecutive playoff streak. In 2015-16, Detroit went 41-32-9, upsetting their way from a wild card berth to an Eastern Conference Finals loss.

After soliciting four-year deals, Hendricks opted for San Jose, the only Western Conference team to offer him one. The Sharks exceeded expectations from Year 1. In 2016-17, San Jose went 44-32-6, and fell to the Winnipeg Jets during a very physical Western Conference Finals. After consciously beefing up the defense, San Jose won back-to-back Stanley Cups in 2017-18 and 2018-19, going 46-25-11 and 50-27-5, respectively.

In 2019-20, San Jose notched another 50-win season, but fell to the Calgary Flames in the First Round. The Red Wings went on to win the Stanley Cup.

Despite the early playoff exit in 2020, San Jose extended Hendricks for five more seasons. He rewarded San Jose with another Stanley Cup in 2020-21. With one game to go before the 2022 All-Star Game, San Jose is 26-14-3 through 2021-22. The record is good enough for 1st in the Pacific Division. However, they’re a few games behind league-leading Carolina.

It would be remiss of me not to share the fact that Hendricks is 8-0-1 against Detroit since his firing.
