Here are the top 10 right wingers in NHL 17, as released on EA Sports' website. 10. James Neal – 88 overall Strong on the puck and in the corners, James Neal is a prototypical NHL power forward. He also owns a very hard (90) and accurate (90) wrist shot which should put him in contention for 30+ goals every year. 9. Nikita Kucherov – 88 overall Now a 30 goal scorer, Kucherov may be a player who shoots up these rankings in the years to come. He owns a very accurate Wrist Shot (91) and has the Speed (90) to burn defenders one-on-one or wide. He has also proven to produce during crunch time, as he put up 19 points in 17 games during the 2016 playoffs. 8. Marian Hossa – 88 overall The Blackhawks winger has been a force on the wing for the past decade. Although he has lost some of the speed that made him a big time point producer in his early years, he has evolved into a great two-way player, apparent by his 5-star defense rating. 7. Blake Wheeler – 89 overall A physical mismatch for many defenders, the Winnipeg power forward uses his (90) Strength, (90) Balance and (90) Puck Control to drive to the net and create scoring chances. 6. Phil Kessel – 89 overall The feel good story of the year, Phil Kessel is now a Stanley Cup Champion! He played major role in the Pittsburgh Penguins’ playoff run as he used his (93) Speed and wicked Wrist Shot Power (90) and Accuracy (90) to score timely goals for the Pens. 5. Jakub Voracek – 90 overall An outstanding playmaker, Voracek creates scoring opportunities using his (91) Passing and (91) Puck Control skills. 4. Corey Perry – 91 overall The former Hart Trophy winner may have taken a small step back the past couple of years, but he is still without a doubt one of the best all-round wingers in the game. He has a rare combination of skill and grit, evident by his 5-star puck skills, shooting, senses and physical ratings. 3. Joe Pavelski – 91 overall The San Jose Sharks captain has been one of the most overlooked superstars in the NHL; over the past three years only Alex Ovechkin has scored more goals than Joe Pavelski. He is an excellent two-way player who produces in the clutch thanks to his all-star caliber shot and elite Hand-Eye (92) which he uses to deflect pucks in front of the net with ease. 2. Vladimir Tarasenko – 93 overall The young Russian followed up his impressive 2014-15 season with a 40 goal campaign that saw him finish twelfth in league scoring. Tarasenko is a strong, explosive player who utilizes his Speed (92), Strength (87) and lethal Wrist shot Accuracy (94) to score at a high rate. (Sidenote: the article says 93, but the graphic says 92, so I'd trust the graphic because it's much harder to typo in that) 1. Patrick Kane – 94 overall The 2016 Hart Trophy winner is the top rated right winger in NHL 17. In terms of pure skill, no one may have a more impressive skill set than Patrick Kane. His shooting attributes rank at the top of the NHL with a (95) Slap Shot & Wrist Shot Accuracy rating, he has speed to burn with a (95) Acceleration and Agility rating, and his hands are second to none with a (96) Deking, Hand-Eye, Passing and Puck Control rating. My opinion: I agree with some and disagree with others. I think Neal and Kucherov are fine, but I think it's completely insulting to Jets fans to make Wheeler an 89 after his fantastic season. On top of that, Voracek, who had a bad season, gets a 90. Hossa is also too high. Aside from that, I'm fine with the rest.
