Hey all! Just checking in with some more NHL 13 links. How about Chicago just wrecking people? They're looking for 20 games without giving up both points, and it very well could happen, as Chicago's next game is against St. Louis, who is definitely good but not unbeatable.
Kind of shocking to see Toronto still hanging in the mix as well, as they seem to be getting some timely goaltending from their mostly unproven netminders, and Nazem Kadri is showing that he actually belongs on the team for the long haul.
Plays of the Week
EA has released another cool plays of the week video. Check it out here.

Here's a creepy image of floors of developers smithing away on EA Sports products at EA Canada. Do they work in a silo?
Want a Chance to Play NHL 13 Against Claude Giroux?
The Flyers are running a promotion where you can win an autographed copy of NHL 13 and play against Claude Giroux. You'll do so with four tickets to the Flyers' "Wives Fight for Lives" carnival to support charity. There are also some other prizes thrown in as well. Reading the particulars, you'll only get one period of play against Giroux (and Brayden Schenn), which is pretty dumb, but hey, it's for a good cause.
Ever wanted to tell EA what to do for the next game? Consider submitting an idea on the "Gamechangers" website so that the developers can at least mull over what you have to say. As with all things, try and think of something concise and specific that they could actually implement.
TSN has a breakdown of the possible realignment for the NHL next season. What do you folks think? Too many playoff games against the same teams? Wild cards a dumb idea? Unbalanced divisions?
