The Malik Report

According to EA Sports, Martin Brodeur and Sergei Bobrovsky will battle for the honor of gracing EA's NHL 14 video game, with Brodeur having defeated Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk.
Now I'm a paranoid Wings fan who's got no faith in the NHL's inistence that their "captchas" prevent both ballot-stuffing and savvy computer programmer-types from scripting the votes, and I get that Martin Brodeur is one of the best goaltenders in NHL history...
But, seriously? Brodeur over the player who is as close to a real-life video game character as is humanly possible? Especially given that EA's "goalie AI" still has the last stand-up and/or "paddle down" goalie in the league playing as a butterfly netminder?
Fekh. I'm not bitter, no no, never bitter...Maybe pissed off...

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
