So far i've made the ratings for the first 3 lines. Offense is the main thing, but i try to factor defensive skills and hitting game aswell.
Im trying to make the ratings realistic for next season, so with some players like Schenn im assuming he will improve alot this summer.
EDIT: and i have no idea what the ratings look like for nhl 13, have lost faith on EA long time ago
I do the same thing when I first get the game, although I'm going to be cautious this year...because I like the idea they went with of spreading out the talent, so the great players appear great, and the fringe players get burnt every so often.
-Giroux* (PLY) probably solid at 91. Speed, Acc, shot acc/pwr should all be relatively high. Agi, deking, passing, off awareness (vision) should be very high. I'll also bet checking/aggressiveness is much lower than it should be for him.
-Hartnell (PWF) might be an 85. After what I saw last season, I'd turn his shot pwr/acc up to a decent level. Checking should be around 85, aggressiveness higher even. He's got some wheels and acceleration, just ****** balance
although if you give him bad balance in the game, he'll get knocked off the puck way too easily...which really doesn't happen IRL.
-Briere* (SNP) shot pwr in the high 80s and shot acc in the high 90s IMO. He has a lethal shot from the left circle (forehand), though that can't really translate into the game, I'd just attribute that to shot acc. Speed, agi, accel, off-aware is high 80s I'd say. Everything else is at a respectable level (low 80s)...even checking/aggr. Def awareness is awful.
-Voracek (PLY) is an easy one. Speed/acc should be in the low 90s (I doubt it is), checking/aggr in the low 80s, shot pwr low 80s, shot acc low 70s or lower. Passing should be mid-high 80s, off/def awareness should be low 80s as well.
-Simmonds (PWF) speed around ~87, checking/ around 85, aggr around 90, shot pwr/acc around low 80s. Off/Def awareness around 80/70-75 respectively.
-Read (SNP) should have low-mid 90s speed, and a hard, decently accurate shot. Everything else should be fine
- (Brayden I assume) Schenn* (???) checking/agg in the mid-80s, passing in the low 80s, temper the shot pwr/acc for now to lower his grade. Speed would be low-mid 80s as well. Off aware around 80, def around 75
-Couturier* (TWF) started hitting a lot more as the season went on last year, so checking around 80, speed 75-80ish, shot pwr/acc are both pretty good, maybe low 80s for now. Off aware should be around 75-80 and def aware should be 85-90.
- Talbot* (TWF) seems a bit low at 79, though he brings things to RL hockey that's tough to translate into a video game. His speed, checking, and aggr should all be respectable. Passing and shot pwr in the low 80s, shot acc in the mid 70s. His def aware should be ~85 and off around 75.
One you forgot who should play a role is Wellwood. I guarantee they overlook his speed, and he's the fastest player on the team easily (makes Read look like a turtle in molasses). He should pull in a 94-96 speed rating with very high acceleration. His def awareness, passing, shot power/acc and off awareness are all respectable as well.
* None of the Flyers centers should have a faceoff skill above 80. We're not that good
