I prefer the much more conservative ratings that NHL 13 gives out. Not even Gretzky is a 99 in that game. That implies a player who is generational in all facets of the game. No such player exists. The closest is Mike Trout I'd say, because he is great at everything, but even he maxes out at a 95 imo.
Also you have to consider what mid to high 90's means. Consider the legends of the game. If Andrew McCutchen is a 99 you're pretty much telling me he's as good as Lou Gehrig, Ted Williams, and Hank Aaron. Afterall, those players couldn't possibly be rated any higher.
I don't think the people who made this game considered any of this. Looking at
some more of the ratings
, it appears they decided to just give every good player a 95-99.
