I was wondering what the Habs team would look like in my ESPN NHL 2K4 video game on PS2.
Before when I pick the Habs there is Audette, Perreault, Quintal, etc. Far from reality.
So I've made all the trades, created a Michael Ryder with his attributes like the real life. I've also updated the characteristics of all the players. Koivu, Zednik, Ribeiro, Souray, Bouillon and Dagenais (it's very funny how the commentator pronounce his name: it's sound like “déjeuner”, lol).
So now the question: how this updated team is ranked?
Before it was like 18th overall, 14th offence, 24th defence and 18th powerplay.
Now it's 7th overall, 3rd offence, 18th defence and 6th powerplay.
Kovalev and Bonk helps a lot.
Maybe my updated team is a bit too strong. My Dagenais is a very poor skater but with a hell of a strong shot. Could score with some blasting slap-shots. Souray have a 99 power slap-shot. Could score from the blue line, break glasses often. But hey, that's funny to see a winning Habs team. Also the bRuins are very weak now without Rolston and Knuble. They took a drop.
That's all for now.
I will update some of my players that have too much in some areas. The shots of dagenais are too strong. He still skate too fast, even at 65 of speed and 58 of acceleration. That's just a video game after all.
