I love how they have Alfie listed as a "grinder" with agression of 87 and checking of 89. Some other ratings are funny too like Theodore a 90 and Kaberle an 83 while Kubina is an 86. No chance in hell is Kubina better than Kaberle.
Meszaros only a 76 but comparing it to rookie Dion Phaneuf and his 89 rating. They're not that far apart in the real game.
Schaefer's rougher play is once again not added in this game. How do you expect him to win a fight around the boards with mid 60s in toughness and checking
Fisher a 79.. Figured the Selke Nominee would've gotten him a little higher but brindamour (82) and Lethinen (82) didn't shape up that well either.
No love for the 2 way player I guess
Preissing a deffensive defenseman. After putting up top 30 points amongst dmen I hope he can also play well in the deffensive end.. Although I could never see him as anything but an offensive defenseman in this game.
You know they only have mediocre broad general NHL knownledge when you have Redden with a 91 / 94 slapshot and Schubert with a 67.
Our only player above 80 in faceoffs is Steve Martins who doesn't even play for us
Dany Heatley has 93 checking!
According to this game Spezza's our second fastest player and Vermette is our 11th fastest. with a 72 overall and a 78 speed rating!
and those were only the things that jumped out to me. If you made player to player comparisons I'd have a list 20X as big as this!
Thank EA for the edit player feature.
It's evident that EA definitly isn't "In the Game"
These ratings are so out of whack. Looking at other players' stats...Alex freakin Kotalik is all of a sudden a power foward and better than the likes of Mike Fisher. HAL GILL is better than Volchenkov, and nearly the same as Phillips. RADEK BONK is better than Mike Fisher. Mike Ribeiro at 85 is probably the game's biggest joke though.
