...i don't care how real life this game is, I've lost all respect for the EA Sports franchise with them ranking Asham and Rupp ahead of Kreider. I know he's a rookie, but are you kidding me?
really 29 goals and hes only a 84? if they still classify Callahan as a grinder I am going to return the game
I'm watching the 94 game 7 final and it never ceases to amaze me how many hooks there were back then that weren't called. People were getting raped and there weren't any calls. Amazing haha
As i said over in the Blog....... you guys have to remember where this game is made... Vancouver, B.C. Canada.. how many people in Vancouver have liked New York Rangers since 1994

So I suppose winning the Vezina as, you know the best goalie in the league doesn't count for shit. Any Ranger fan will tell you that the Kreider rating is BS, but to be fair he hasn't played a single regular season game. Disappointed in the Hagelin rating. I think the McD rating is spot on. He'll be a 90 in NHL14. MDZ overrated. as usual.
@ScottyHockey @TheNYRBlog can't wait to see Asham goon it up like he did in the playoffs. #ugh #disgrace
@ScottyHockey I know he's a rookie but he did play in the playoffs. Definitely enough games to get a fair ranking.
@TheNYRBlog I agree, the rankings suck. Even as a Rangers fan, I can acknowledge that Tavares deserves more than an 85.
@TheNYRBlog how abt Ryan Miller as top goalie and having Quick tied for third with Carey fricking Price
as long as i can edit the players myself I dont care what the rating are.
but miller being rated higher than henrik.....thats just stupid.
The game is fun, I buy it every year. But every year its biggest issue is ability to rank their players. Their traits for all these players, especially goalies, are always off. If there is one goalie that should be ranked higher than Hank, it is Quick. and not Ryan Miller.
If Kreider did not play any NHL games, I would understand his rating being low. But he did exceptional for 5 games. Give the guy at least a 73. I wont be shocked to see Hagelins speed being innacurate. Rupp at 76? McDonagh is a little high I believe (a lil!) and so is Del Zottos.
The worst part of all of this, is that the NHL series takes a LONG time to update its rosters.
Hagelin was the player I was most loooking forward too in terms of a new rating. his speed better be off the charts
Eh, the games are more fun when you make your own player and do 6 v 6 club games. I agree with you that Asham over Kreider seems stupid...but Kreider really hasn't had a full pro season yet (let alone a regulation game!), that will be remedied in the next game, guaranteed. I personally can't wait for NHL 13, so good!
@ChrisRepetti Game looks sick for sure. But they do have Kreider's playoff performance from last year to base a ranking off of.
Plus guys are ranked by their intangibles this year, I bet rupp n asham, being useless goons on the ice that can fight and hit probably have some sort of impact on their rating being higher than kreider. Kreider probably has better shooting, speed, and balance though
@TheNYRBlog All rookies are rated in the high 60's-low 70's when they first make an appearance in the game. He'll get an update.
check out the other teams they released today. No way Letang is a 90 and Richards/Nash are only 87's.
Clearly the creators of the game or EA sports themselves didn't watch any of the playoffs lol. Pathetic
