Ive been testing over the last days here trying to find logic in these ratings.
Center 18..... 4 yellow stars..... 65 ovr (1st overall)
1yr 4 yellow stars..... 66 ovr 7 g 7 a 15
2yr 4 yellow stars..... 67 ovr 9 g 8 a 1
3yr 4 yellow stars..... 68 ovr 9 g 9 a +4
L Wing 18..... 4 yellow stars..... 66 ovr (3rd overall)
1yr 4 yellow stars..... 74 ovr 16 g 22 a 7
2yr 4 yellow stars..... 79 ovr 26 g 16 a +10
3yr 4 yellow stars..... 80 ovr 26g 23 a 3
R Wing 19.... 3.5 yellow stars... 59 ovr (2nd overall)
1yr 3.5 yellow starts.. 61 ovr 3 g 16 a 11
2yr 3.5 yellow stars .. 64 ovr 4 g 25 a +8
3yr 3.5 yellow stars.. 64 ovr 1 g 4 a 13
I've signed them all and put them all on the first line. I've gutted my team with a few years left in the game to get a better judgment of how these ratings work. I also have the following..
D...... 19.... 3.5 stars........ 64 ovr (21st overall)
1yr 3.5 stars........ 67 ovr 3 g 11 a 20
2yr 3.5 stars........ 71 ovr 5 g 6 a 8
3yr 3.5 stars........ 73 ovr 0g 9a 9
D...... 23.... 3.5 stars........ 72 ovr (20th overall)
1 yr 3.5 stars........ 76 ovr 7 g 23 a 16
2 yr 3.5 stars........ 81 ovr 4 g 27 a 23
3 yr 3.5 stars....... 85 ovr 11g 28a +5
Those are the NHL guys Im testing
In the AHL I took some similiar guys and put them into slots for top minutes.

The player drafted #1 overall has progressed a total of 3 ovr in three years getting top minutes in the NHL. In real terms, he'd be considered a bust by NHL standards. There's 3 players who've progressed at nice rates. 2 in the NHL and 2 in the AHL, one who took a huge leap from 69 to 83. He's 1 of 2 players who's playing where the game says he should play (minor 1st line).. the other is a dman who's progressed 10 ovr in 3 years. After 3 years of watching Im starting to come to the conclusion there's no speeding up the process of development which we've had in prior years. I have two season left to get a better idea. The dman who hit an 85 is older. I didnt sign him until he was 22 which once again shows dmen really jumping at about 25 years old. The last guy listed hasnt moved from 72 in 3 years getting top minutes.
