Feel free to peruse those in greater detail, but here are some observations about a few of the more surprising bits.
- The five highest rated Florida Panthers players are all tied at an 83 rating.
- Sidney Crosby (95) sports a much higher rating than Evgeni Malkin (91), while Marc-Andre Fleury and Tomas Vokoun are rated 87 overall.
- Claude Giroux gets a 90 while Ilya Bryzgalov receives a benefit-of-the-doubt 86.
- Daniel Sedin (91) and Henrik Sedin (90) don’t have “twin” ratings.
- Cam Ward (88) and Eric Staal (87) still lead the way for the Carolina Hurricanes. Meanwhile, Alex Semin‘s rating is an enigmatic 83.
Leahy points out that the NHL 13 demo will be available on Xbox Live and Playstation 3 on Aug. 21,* so you can give the game a try then.
(As long as you’re OK with using the Los Angeles Kings and/or New Jersey Devils.)
* – Unless you have a PS3 in Europe. Then you need to wait an extra day.
