    Default NHL14 Stanley Cup Final Series Simulation

    Don't know if this was already discussed before (I'm sure some of you have already seen this, but it didn't come up on a search) so here goes:

    Some guy ran an NHL14 simulation of the Kings-Rangers series before the Finals started. It's about 30 minutes long and surprisingly entertaining..

    Without spoiling:

    - The series goes as you'd think it would go considering it's driven by regular season stats.
    - The AI has never spent any time in Viking, AB
    - Just like reality, there were times I couldn't watch the Kings play D.

    That's what happens when you pass to Mike Green!

    Somewhat entertaining, I give the guy credit for putting that together but his description of the game was getting really annoying by the end.

    Mispronounced names, mixed-up names, endlessly repeated phrases of the shallowest description... did Jim Hill narrate this?

    Yeah, that's what made it so entertaining - stunning realism!

    Ha, looks at how dumb this is. Oh yeah sure, why is Doughty paired with Mitchell? Ha ha, Richards scoring from the point? What's with all these wraparound? What a stupid waste of time. Ha ha...

    /feeling shame for wasting almost 40 minutes watching a video of a hockey game simulation.
    /re-evaluating life


    (2 minutes later)
    /getting lost in a YouTube hole, watching Kings-Sharks game 5 highlights (3-0 Kings shutout).
    Well that's much, much better.

    Richards? What about the blast from Regehr?

    And as long as we're talking UNrealistic parts, gotta love how clutch Nash is.

    OTOH, poor Gabby.. Wonder if he re-signs..

    I couldn't help but think this guy will be doing some sort of commentating for NBC next year.
