If EA Sports NHL Games Have Taught Me Anything...

... they have taught me that:

  • Silent Jay McClement can be a 30 goal scorer.
  • Eric Brewer is worth quite a bit in trade.
  • Even the computer wants to send Jaroslav Halak to the minors.
  • Roman Polak not just Billy Badass in real life, Billy Badass in video games too.
  • Offensive zone faceoff on right dot: Good faceoff man + Barret Jackman on left defense = career year in goals for Mr. "You're An Idiot" Face.
  • It's always funny to make Gretzky's head bleed.
  • Alex Pietrangelo and Erik Johnson will one day make Al MacInnis and Chris Pronger look like a couple of Mites.
  • The Blues should have, like, 30 shorthanded goals a year.
  • It's really not that hard to beat Detroit.
  • Patrick Kane is poo.
  • Samuel Pahlsson's name will always remind you of, "His name is Robert Paulson. His name is Robert Paulson."
  • Chris Pronger still looks pretty good in a No. 44 Blues jersey in 2011.
  • His name isn't Teemu Selanne, it's T. Muselanne.
  • If you're gonna insist on bringing the puck into the offensive zone right next to the boards, I'm going to insist on mashing your brains into the boards virtually every time.
  • Patrik Berglund is frustrating.
  • Ben Bishop is going to be money.
  • Sometimes piling up goals on Detroit and Chicago is hilarious. Actually, it's always funny.
  • I don't even care if it's a fake, cartoon Cup getting carried around, I get pretty psyched when I see Stanley in the hands of Blues players.
