    EA sports has continued their releases of the top 10 ratings for each position for NHL 17.

    [​IMG]


    10. Alex Steen – 88 overall

    The veteran winger for the St. Louis Blues is an excellent two-way forward who can play first line minutes.

    [​IMG]
    9. Gabriel Landeskog – 88 overall

    The 2011-12 Calder Trophy winner has developed into one of the league’s premier power forwards. He should continue to average between 50-60 points throughout his career while also bringing a physical element to the ice every night.

    [​IMG]
    8. Filip Forsberg – 88 overall

    A star on the rise, the Nashville Predators will be leaning on Forsberg to be their offensive leader for the next few years.

    [​IMG]
    7. Daniel Sedin – 88 overall

    Not blessed with explosive speed or a booming shot, Daniel Sedin uses his hockey sense and outstanding playmaking ability with his brother Henrik to creating scoring chances for the Vancouver Canucks.

    [​IMG]
    6. Zach Parise – 89 overall

    The Minnesota Wild star winger is a heart and soul player who scores big goals in both the NHL and international competition. He boasts 5-star puck skills, skating and senses and is also responsible on defense with a (88) Defensive Awareness rating.

    [​IMG]
    5. Max Pacioretty – 89 overall

    The four-time 30 goal scorer and Montreal Canadiens’ captain possesses an excellent shot with a (90) Slap Shot Power, Wrist Shot Power and Wrist Shot Accuracy rating.

    [​IMG]
    4. Johnny Gaudreau – 90 overall

    Size doesn’t matter to Johnny Hockey as the shifty winger uses his excellent Agility (94) and 5-star puck skills to slip away from defenders. Still only 22 years old, Gaudreau has the skillset to be near the top of league in scoring for the foreseeable future.

    [​IMG]
    3. Taylor Hall – 90 overall

    One of the best skaters in the league, Hall can use his (95) rated Speed to drive hard to the net and create scoring changes for himself and his teammates. The New Jersey Devils will hope he can stay Durable (83) next year, as they will be leaning on him to lead their offense.

    [​IMG]
    2. Alex Ovechkin – 94 overall

    One of the greatest goal scorers in NHL history, Alex Ovechkin is a threat to score 50+ goals every season. His (94) rated Slap Shot Power and Accuracy allows him to score from almost anywhere in the offensive zone.

    [​IMG]
    1. Jamie Benn – 94 overall

    After back-to-back 80+ points campaigns including an Art Ross Trophy victory, Jamie Benn has emerged as our top rated left winger in NHL 17. Benn’s combination of size and skill is nearly unstoppable, as he is one of the only players in NHL 17 to have 5-star ratings in all rating categories (Puck skills, shooting, skating, senses and physical ability).

    Wow the first time I agree with EA with the ratings. Surprised Steen is in the top 10 since he didn't have the greatest season last season with the Blues.

    Damn 90 for Gaudreau. He shouldn't have really good defensive and physicality stats. He will be an offensive beast :O

    I agree with most, if not all of them. I can accept Parise at an 89, especially with the injury ridden season he had. Weird that there is a gap between 90 and 94, but I'd rather have the overalls more spaced out.

    Actually, these are not that bad. That being said, if Marchand is given 85 again, I'll flip sh*t.

    I actually agree with this. I am also shocked nobody has flipped shit about Benn being over Ovi

    Benn had the better season. While Ovie had the better Playoffs imo.

    Eeh, it is for the name that i am shocked. Plus Benn was over a point per game in the playoffs, i think 14 points in 13 games

    Oh yeah true I forgot, I felt Ovie had a better impact as a leader but both Dallas and Washington were elimnated in the same round so yeah. It's probably a minor difference in defensive stats.

    ^^

    it probably will even though Benn should destroy Ovi there. Benn is one of the best defensive wingers in the game. Then again, the skating will also probably be even despite the fact Ovi should dominate that. It's going to be interesting.

    Zach Parise has been having injury problems, and deserves a 90 when he's healthy, but an 89 is really really good imo, we all know he ain't the same player from 09 sadly enough

    Marchand definitely should be on the list, yeah. Otherwise, it actually could be worse.
