I think stats this year may be better than before. NHL07 and previous has been heavily offensively biased, now 08 looks to be much more balanced which should even stats out a bit. Ric Jackman on NHL07 was an 86 or something extortionate because of his offensive ability. He's just one name that springs to mind because even if the game only evaluated offensive ability, I still wouldn't give him an 86!! It was the same across the board, offensive defensemen had very high ratings and defensive defensemen had generally lower ratings. Don't go firing exceptions at me, this is just a general observation. Zbynek Michalek was around a 70 last year and well more deserving of an 86 than Ric Jackman.

Anyway, a few of my Buffalo guesses:

Miller 88
Thibault 72
Dennis 65

Tallinder 83
Campbell 81
Lydman 80
Spacek 77
Numminen 74
Kalinin 73
Paetsch 70
Sekera 68
Funk 62
Card 60

Vanek 87
Hecht 82
Paille 71
Peters 59
Ryan 67
MacArthur 68
Hunter 62

Connolly 83
Roy 84
Gaustad 76
Zagrapan 66

Afinogenov 86
Pominville 79
Kotalik 78
Stafford 75
Mair 71
Mancari 64
Kaleta 62
