NHL 08 Overalls

I was checkin out the game last night, and the first thing I do is browse through the overalls. I just want to know who everyone thinks is overrated and underrated on that game.

Overrated:
John Madden 87
Sergei Brylin 84
Sergei Fedorov 89
Dwayne Roloson 89
Mike Peca 86
Jeff O'Neill 82
Trevor Linden 80
Dean Mcammond 81
Jarret Stoll 87
Mike Rupp 78


Underrated:
Alex Semin 81
Henrik Lundqvist 87
Olli Jokinen 83
Thomas Vanek 84


Anyone else have some different opinions on this??

Except for Jokinen, I agree with those overalls...

This year they wanted to make the overalls less important and put more emphasis on the ratings such as defensive awarenesse and offensive awareness.

By the look of things, Savard or Vanek must have ridiculously high ratings in offensive but are really lacking on the physical aspect as well as defensively. In opposition, Peca, Madden and Stoll are really good in that aspect.

So Overalls don't count for as much in nhl 08.

Niklas Backstrom being only 80 overall is just ridiculous

I haven't played the game yet (just the demo, but picking up after work today).

I agree with this. I remember reading on blog posted by one of the developers of the game that overall rating wasn't as important. An example he gave was career AHLer's having a higher overall rating than some NHL regulars, but still not able to stick in the NHL because they lack attributes in certain areas like defensive abilities or strength, etc.

Then they need to give gamers relevant ratings. I figure a rating for each player type would to wonders. Then a weighted average of each player's ratings would be the overall. So a speedy winger with great hands would be rated high, but his low defensive type ratings would bring him down a bit.

Why bother even having the overall rating if it doesn't mean anything?

Two Duck/Leafs Comparisons that are a joke....yes in both cases the ducks are better but the leafs are not that much worse.

Ryan Getzlaf 87
Kyle Wellwood 78

Should be 85 and 81.

Scott Neidermayer 96
Tomas Kaberle 86

Kaberle is always severely underrated... Should be about 92 and 89.

Don't judge players by overalls.....its a useless stat.

While Savard is only an 84 he has great offensive instincts (Passing/Offensive). His checking/defensive play is low, which plays a huge roll in the overall.

Take a look at Wolski from Colorado as well......very low overall, but when you go to edit him, you'll see most of his stats at 80's.
