The Red Wings season would have started this Friday, but as you all know, we've been locked out and there's nothing we can do about it.
Or is there?
Last year the NBA simulated its season up to the end of their lockout. They kept track of standings and stats and I believe they wrote a little bit about each game. Well, I'm stealing their idea. They owe us for Bettman.
I'll be simulating every Red Wings game that has been canceled on EA Sports NHL 13 and writing about the outcome as if it actually happened. I plan on putting in quotes from the digital coaching staff based on what I believe their personalities are like. The series will be called 'Lockout Therapy.' Hey, it's something…
The rosters are all set. The digital players are ready to digitally dominate. Digital Ericsson is ready to digitally screw up. Digital Datsyuk will digitally dangle downloaded defenders daily.
I know, I know, it's not the same. It's like having a caffeine headache and finding a flat bottle of Diet Mountain Dew in the fridge. It's not what we wanted, but it'll have to do for now.
See you Friday!
