Icon47 Caps broadcasting remaining games using NHL 20 and the NBCSW local PBP team

Caps simulating games

Not sure if this has been posted anywhere else (I posted it in another thread but thought it's own thread might make sense).

The Caps are broadcasting their remaining games including live PBP from their regular PBP crew.

It would be nice if this went league wide. It could be a fun distraction for a bit.

Can you imagine awarding the Stanley Cup to the team that won in a mass online game played by NHLers?

This is downright amazing. And behind the scenes, a creative way to still pay some of the downstream folks (show production, on-air talent, etc).

If Lowe was employing commenters in HF years back to change the tone of conversation, there is zero doubt he’s employing gamers and other developers to boost the attributes of Oiler players (and create banners!) in NHL20 and have Quinn and Debrusk slobber all over the screen, and roll this out via Snet West.

I have no doubt that if sportsnet setup something like this the Oilers would win the Cup

They'll probably rig it so they lose out to the Oilers in Game 7 of the finals. because nobody can deny the team of destiny.

I have no issue with the caps rigging the simulated games.

Papa Johns is giving 50% off pizza (including contactless delivery) every time the simmed Caps win. Might have to take advantage of that once or twice if we’re stuck at home.
