actually; Defensive awareness involves grabbing the puck in the air or on your stick on dumps
Offensive is keeping it in and knocking the puck down on clears or in front of the net

I thought Acceleration was reaching top speed faster?
AND face-offs actually helps you win them better.
And passing as someone already mentioned obvious, and when you do sauce passes they look awesome.

durability is not useless, lower durability means higher likelihood of being injured.

Unless you're entire team is comprised entirely of human players, most of those stats are useful. I've found out that, unless you're controlling them, they all matter when you're playing single player like in Dynasty Mode and controlling a team in game. While you're controlling one guy, the computer is obviously gonna control the other 4 players on the ice (plus goalie).

I do have a question though:
What does Poise mean in all this? I can guess, but I don't like guessing.

Tougness actually help. I've found that when I start and have low toughness, I get pushed around easily when going to the next.
