In Topic: NHL videogaming

Yesterday, 01:34 PM


If the success of video game GM modes, and Capgeek, and fantasy hockey, are any indication, quite a lot of people find drafting, developing, building, trading, signing FAs, scouring the waiver wire, and other personnel moves extremely interesting. 


Think about it, when you play video games, or participate in fantasy sports, is the actual game play the funnest part?  Or is it all the stuff you do in the lead up to the season, or the game, what's satisfying? 

I tried to tell myself I liked playing the games but I soon found myself simming more and more games until I was just simming the whole season and concentrated on building my roster.


I think the games got repetitive after a while while building didn't.

Kinda seems like a buffalo thing to do. They could have both Kanes and name them the douchebag brothers.

I really want to see a Sheahan Glenny Helm line. No line in the league could score on them I love Blash already just for suggesting that.

Same that leaves Anderson centering our fourth line. I like it too but I don't want to picture what our fourth would look like.

I get ya but the reason you don't give goalies big contracts is because their trade value can drop faster than the Chinese stock market. So in that case you're better off trying to trade smith and sproul without Jimmy unless Edmonton ends up wanting to try their 16th goalie in ten years or something like that. So hypothetically Yakupov.

Realistically If Marzek beats out Jimmy completely this season then I think we'll be seeing a Jimmy like the end of last season that had his confidence knocked. No one is gunna take on his 5 year 5.3 contract at that point. What we should be hoping for is an equal number of starts with some healthy competition.
