The future of video games is being unveiled at the 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo (or “E3”) this week, so it makes sense that EA Sports shared an official trailer for NHL 14:
As you can see from the video above, the game will be released in North America on Sept. 10 and the rest of the world on Sept. 13.
While the game trots out some new gameplay features, it doesn’t give much of an idea of what hockey video games will look like on the next set of consoles. Maybe fans will need to wait until NHL 15 for things to look this impressive?
“Nope,” Dubinsky said. “You know, I’ve played the same way my whole career and I’m not going to change. The next time I have an opportunity to play (Crosby), I’m going to play him hard.”
In case you’re wondering, that next opportunity comes on Dec. 21 in Pittsburgh, assuming that both players are healthy and not suspended.
One can understand Dubinsky’s perspective, although such honesty would be that much more interesting if there’s another incident with Crosby. His initial reaction to the hit was interestingly candid, admitting that his “stick rode up” on his adversary.
Would that stance – which, from a harsher view, might seem flippant to Dubinsky’s critics – open the door for a bigger future bit of a discipline?
Maybe, maybe not … but at least his comments aren’t as inflammatory as what John Tortorella said (at least on the record).
