Hahah yeah, some faces are dead accurate, while others just get a generic Volpatti-esque face.

This is awesome.

Great job... And i'm really shocked at how into it i am... i was actually a little disappointed that we lost the 2 vs fake Calgary and how i was looking forward to the fake Sharks 'telecast' and wondering/looking forward to what random scene you were gonna choose for the final one.

Can't wait to follow some stats once the fake real season starts.

C'mon guys, this is fake pre-season.
It all means nothing until the fake regular season begins!

So the correct thing to say would be "someone is spending too much time on this".

People on HF who know of me, know I've posted here a long time, and then somehow fumbled my way into blogging for the Province. As such I am doing anything and everything I can to see if it's possible to make a career out of writing humorous hockey stuff. Odds are it isn't possible, but I want to at least try, right? It would be a dream come true to make it as a writer/sports guy , writing about the Canucks.

Seeing the stuff I write get into the actual paper? That's still surreal for me. And it's not just because I have talent. Tons of people I've talked to on HF can write amazing in depth stuff about the Canucks and hockey just as well or better than me. I have this chance because a) I was in the right place at the right time and b) I went for it, and I went for it hard.

That is why I am throwing myself into this so hard. Because the lockout sucks, and there is nothing to write about, so I have to see if I can still find a way to entertain people. I want to try and fill a niche and make people think "That Kid_Roll/Stanchion/Wyatt (however you know me), I wonder what he thinks about all of this..."

I know you probably meant your comment as a throwaway comment, and me writing a novel of a response certainly doesn't do me any favors of dispelling the myth that I have too much time on my hands, but cheesiness aside, I learned my craft on HF Boards, I honed my style down here. I made gifs and photoshops for you guys long before twitter. I did fake GM conversations on here many moons ago, learning how to be funny with sports.

I know it's super easy to be cynical on the internet, but HF is where I "grew up" so I've always wanted to kind of let everyone on here, anyone who's ever talked to me, thank you, thank you for talking to me, and giving me positive reactions or negative reactions. I wouldn't be in the Province without you guys. You guys, again, easy to be cynical, but you were like a group of online friends I could always talk hockey with, even when life was really down for me. It was a therapeutic place to come here, even if it was just to yell at certain posters for being idiots, or to rail on Dan Cloutier. Anyways, in closing, hockey rules, as do you guys.


Ahem. And that is the last time I will ever open up like that. Back to snarky Kid_Roll.
Bravo!

And that Strombone1 tweet was just gold.

Kind of related but not really, what is the difference in the overall rating between Luongo and Schneider in NHL 2013?

Correct. Funny story, when I game tested EA in August, Luongo was 88 and Schneider was 87. (Or 89 and 88. Point is there was one point difference, then it changed at some point.)

What do you think you could get for either? Having never played, do you think you could completely rip off another team(Like asking for Kessel, or Huberdeau, or something)?

Watched all three, loving it, great job! I think the announcing portion will come easier with you as you get deeper into the season and you can start building on storylines, etc. The difference between game 1 and 3 I was quite substantial already.

Ah, so that's you in there, is it? Always interesting to hook up hf accounts with the actual people in real life.

And sorry, I'd like to check out the fake games, seems like a good laugh but it'd just remind me that there's no real games on the horizon and depress me more.

Just a quick mention about it on the very back page regarding Luongo's and Lack's tweets.

Hahah found it:

They are playing along well.

If all goes well, I should have a fun surprise for Monday's game. Fake Schneider gets the whole game Saturday, but Monday it's fake Luongo vs fake Lack, each guy taking half the game.
