As much as I try and stay away from Puckdaddy and his Wing-hating, I couldn’t help but stumble upon this with some amusement…
Some fan from Pittsburgh already had time (shocking) to play his EA NHL 2010 (you know, the one with Pat “20 Cent” Kane on the cover) demo, and win it with the Pens. This is the gem that the programmers decided to add to the game this year, a captain’s handshake.
Apparently, the whole “being young and caught up in the moment” isn’t part of a players overall rating in the game and therefore has no bearing on the ending cut-scene.
I really don’t care about the handshaking thing. Rosby was being immature (again…shocking) and the Wings were upset when they made their comments (probably because they just lost the Stanley Cup Finals on their home ice).
If they can use it for motivation as Malik has suggested, fine. If not, fine.
