EA Sticks with its guns, takes Vancouver as Cup Winners

According to its latest predictions, the EA SPORTS NHL '11 Simulation Engine is sticking with the Canucks over Boston in what it expects to be a tight series that goes the distance. And that Presidents' Trophy? It factored in handily as the home team won each game, with one of the more thrilling moments an overtime win by the Bruins in Game 6 at TD Garden to force a decisive seventh game.

Home ice advantage seems really strong in the EA simulation. Boston and Vancouver are both great road teams and will certainly win a couple away from their fan bases. With that said, it's just a video game, eh?

The simulation was near perfect after the first two rounds, going 11/12.

It's actually not even that hard to predict who wins each series lol. I've only gotten one series wrong in the entire playoffs so far and that was Washington-Lightning.

These playoffs, Boston's powerplay is 3% on the road. 3%!!!!! Vancouver's road powerplay is 40%.

EA also predicted a Canucks-Bruins Stanley Cup final back in October with Vancouver winning. They also predicted that we would win the President's Trophy, and almost got both top 3 teams in each conference (they predicted the wrong team from Pennsylvania).

Too bad the 13-to-1 power play ratio will ensure that the the end result is about even. I wish I were joking.

It`s easy in hindsight to say you nailed all the predictions this year, because there weren`t many upsets. How did EA do last year when every seed in the East was an upset?

EA's prediction for last round:

"according to the EA computers, Vancouver will overcome a home loss to the Sharks in Game 1 with two straight overtime victories and an eventual Western Conference title in six games."

not bad.

The ref can simply refuse to call anything on Boston and call a lot of penalty on the canucks.

Wonder if Boston fans will be shouting "Let them play!" if it's the Canucks parading to the box? Anyways, with the recent scrutiny of the Campbell conflict-of-interest, I think that should ensure a fairly officiated series. Too many questions otherwise.

heh no kidding. I doubt anyone would be hollering. This whole Campbell conflict-of-interest thing should've never happened to begin with. But it just goes to show Bettman's nhl agenda.

Sorta like it's been in quite a few of the Nucks' games already...
