yeah crosby is a real bone crusher. gretz was a very underrated defender. its absurd to have crosby as a better all around player.

I do have to say that it is pretty ridiculous to have Crosby rated higher than Gretzky! Crosby is a dominant player... best player on the ice today... but Gretzky is the best player to step on the ice of all time.

On a side, Crosby tried to hit/fight a lot in hit first couple seasons... but he has toned it down! He does still put up a respectable number of hits (50-70 a year) compared to the Kessel's of the league (10-13 a year).. but doesn't tip the scales enough to rate him over Gretz!

That's insane!

Gretzky brought more to his team than any other player ever. He should be rated higher.

It's silly, but it is what it is. Personally I think if EA is going to put Gretzky in the games his overall should always be 99.

It kind of makes sense if you think about it this way. NHL 13 is based on the current NHL, not the NHL from 30 years ago. The game is faster and more physical now then it was 30 years ago. So based on that there is no way Gretzky from 30 years ago would be better than Crosby in the modern NHL, because he would probably get killed whenever he got the puck, even though he is a quick player he isn't physical enough.

This would mean 99 everywhere right ? No way he has 99 in def. awereness, body checking, fighting and some other. The fact that Crosby has higher ratings in those categories while being only a little bit below Gretzky in offensive attributes is why he has a better overall, since every attribute matters now.

Well, somebody can't physically handle the modern NHL. But it isn't gretzky. "Mushbrain" Crosby on the other hand...

By the way, gretzky had above average speed, put him in today's equipment and he'd still be above average.

If you don't like the overall, feel free to change it in the edit player menu for your offline gameplay enjoyment.

Game's not that great.

Instead of NHL13, they should have named it NHLPokeCheck.

So it's safe to say that I don't think they played the NHL video games from back in the '90s then?

Well Crosby is more physical than Gretzky and checks people more than Gretzky did.
