    Were there every any EA simulated season that came true when it comes to the winners? Or even both finalists being there?

    Leafs fans on here are so insecure.

    For some reason, I feel like they got the Capitals winning the cup last year. I may be wrong on that though. I also think they had the Sharks winning in 2016 when they lost in the finals.

    Ftr, ea sports has been incredibly accurate in the past. Much more so than most insiders

    IIRC, the sim previous to the playoffs had Winnipeg winning with Laine taking home the Smythe.

    In 2017-18, they had the Lightning beating the Oilers in the Stanley Cup Final.
    2017-18 NHL® SEASON SIM - NHL® 18

    The year before that, they had Nashville defeating Montreal in the Cup Final.
    NHL®17 | 2016-17 Season Simulation

    In 2016, they had the Ducks beating the Canadiens.
    NHL 16 Season Sim

    2015, the sim had the Ducks beating the Rangers.
    2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs Sim

    So there ya go, the EA Sports simulations suck.

    Remember, those fools don't even bother to update player ratings. I'm sure Corey Perry is still rated in the high 80s, along with Ryan Kesler.

    Ea Sports predicts Leafs and the Hockey News predicted the Jets I think in 2013. Interesting to see who wins out. (Though I guess another pair of teams could fight for the cup)

    Those graphics are terrible. Is it 2008?

    Yeah except ever since they've started doing these they have never been right.

    Edit: and as a bonus they started publishing sim results when they simmed the Boston/Vancouver series and the result was a Vancouver win.

    Was this before the playoffs or before the regular season? I think they do multiple predictions, one at the start of the year and one at the start of the playoffs.

    They're usually wrong, especially with their early season predictions. Their late season predictions have actually been okay, they had San Jose in the finals in 2016 (their prediction was Capitals-Sharks, which honestly wasn't too far off) and Nashville beating Montreal in 2017 (Nashville lost in the finals). They had 3 of the 4 teams in the conference finals right last year too.

    I was going off this
    How accurate is EA Sports’ NHL Playoff Predictor?

    It's outdated, but not bad info.

    Or even more appalling, John Gibson is only an 85

    They probably still have Ryan Miller rated about as highly as Gibson.

    Wouldn't surprise me. NHL 19 is the first one I'll be skipping in a while. I only got NHL 18 so I could play as VGK.

    Those Playstation 2 graphics that EA is showing off have advanced so far from the 16-bit era.

    Seriously. Considering the graphics in a lot of games nowadays, EA hockey games still look like they're using the same engine from a decade ago.

    Pretty much every time a Toronto player is listed in a top 10,20,50 list we're told it's only because they're a Leaf and they need to cater to Toronto. We're not insecure we're just annoyed that apparently now that we have Matthews there is some grand conspiracy to rank him higher than he actually is.

    It's strange how Kessel never benefited from this secret advantage in his rankings.

    Picking one winner from 30 or 31 teams is always going to be a really low success rate. I'd be more interested in any methodology for grading their predictions that took a broader approach than simply looking at the ultimate winner.

    They probably are.

    EA puts so little effort into their sports games, it is embarrassing

    Just checked it is actually a full five years old right now and obviously showing its age.
