The Stanley Cup is staying put in Hockeytown, according to a simulation of the 2008-09 season by Electronic Arts using its "NHL 09 video" game.

The simulation shows the Detroit Red Wings defeating the Montreal Canadiens four games to two in the Stanley Cup final, with Pavel Datysuk capturing the Conn Smythe Trophy.

The Red Wings won the President's Trophy for the second straight season, leading the league with 53 wins and 114 points. Pittsburgh was the power in the East, finishing with 51 wins and 112 points but was upset in the Eastern final in seven games by Montreal.

The Habs, in their centennial season, finished second in the East with 49 wins and 100 points. according to the simulation.

Penguins star Sidney Crosby, injury free during the season, won both the Hart Memorial and Art Ross trophies with 113 points. Washington sniper Alexander Ovechkin scored 56 goals to collect his second Maurice Richard Trophy while Calgary's Dion Phaneuf won the Norris Trophy winner as top defenceman, helping Flames (43 wins, 91 points) to third in the West.

The simulation had Phoenix's Kyle Turris as top rookie, winning the Calder with 24 goals and 43 assists.

The video game came up with a rough ride for Toronto, which finished 14th in the East with 34 wins and 78 points. The Senators (40 wins, 90 points) finished seventh in the East, losing to the Habs in seven games in the first round of the playoffs.

Edmonton (42 wins, 90 points) placed eighth in the West and was swept by Detroit in the first round of the playoffs. Vancouver (40 wins, 87 points) finished 10th in the West.

That's why it can look good on paper, but not on the ice.
So, they'll use the video game instead of actually playing the game?
Is that what they will show on the broadcasts?
So, the broadcasters could tape the game the day before, if they wanted?
What about the betting line?
You mean they could phone it in?

Jack, this so sad...

Nope, not at all... ;)

It's actually the opposite.
You posted about the video game, not me.....and a......your on a Canadian board, so....
You have nothing I want.
Just helping clear the smoke, that's all.
Jealousy is more your forte.
Your as complex as a two piece puzzle.
So.....what about your alumni game?

Wayne leads the way in hockey and effected the world does that count?
He is the best player ever and changed the game like no one else, does that count?

Your funny.
American leaders are known and have had impact.
Substantial impact......hum....where do I start?
HA, HA, HA.......like candy from a baby.

OK tell me about the Blue Devils reunion.
Do you need a puck?

When you need to look to a hockey player (a wimpy one, at that) as an example of some important Canadian contribution to the world, then I think it is safe to say I have won this round in record time.

Oh....you mean my turn.....OK!

Do you need a puck for your big Alumni game?
Maybe a couple for the skill, that's skill competition?
How does anyone from Sault Mich. count to ten?
0-1, 0-2, 0-3, 0-4..........
Sucks to be you!

Oh, in case you missed it.
Another one done good.......ahhh!
