    The NHL games always make some players way better than they are.

    cue nhl and video game experts, who know more than the people actually working in the industry…

    Is there a special rating for Miller where he plays great until the most clutch moment of the most clutch game where he melts down and lets in questionable goals?

    Like 2007 game 5 OT Alfredsson’s weak seeing eye goal, 2006 game 7 vs Carolina, Olympics gold medal OT Crosby 5-hole, etc., etc., etc…

    Are you saying that people who play the NHL games dont follow hockey? I’m pretty sure most of the people who play the games know whether a player is better than he is in real life. Just look at how good they made Bryz in NHL12

    Well it’s kind of inevitable that the ratings wont be perfect to everyone based on everyone’s views.. i mean let’s face it…it’s pretty much impossible to make everyone happy with every single player…

    Better question, who is the lowest ranked NHLer… that’s when things get interesting.
